Petra Ecclestone

The Mansion She REALLY Wanted

6/14/2011 8:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The 22-year-old heiress who is buying Candy Spelling's mega-mansion didn't get the house she REALLY wanted -- TMZ has learned her first choice was a $125 million estate just down the street!

Sources close to super heiress Petra Ecclestone tell us ... the clothing designer had her heart set on a 45,000 square foot Holmby Hills property called "Fleur de Lys" -- considered one of the greatest homes on the planet.

It's unclear why the deal didn't go through -- but it IS clear why Petra wanted the home ... it's INSANE.

The five-acre property  boasts 12 bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, a 50-seat home theater, 4,000 bottle wine room, massage room, beauty salon, 22-karat-gold-leaf crown moldings and a 70-foot swimming pool and spa.

Oh, it also has a BALLROOM that can fit 650 people!!!

The home, which took 5 years to complete, was built by radio mogul David Saperstein -- and has been on the market for years.

.... and Petra's gonna have to see it every time she drives home to that other 57,000 square foot dump she had to buy instead.

Rough life.

Bill Gates who is 10 times richer than this women's dad is leaving his children a mere $10 million each.

This is the home featured in 'Indecent Proposal', no? She looks like Euro-trash just trying to show off, IMO. The Spelling mansion is pure garbage. This one is way over the top, but you can tell it's a far better home/property. Candy's home is large, but looks like an inflated, cheaply-made McMansion by comparison. I don't picture her having that home long. They seem like the here-today-gone-tomorrow rich-types, like that tacky-ass Christian Audigier....

How is she gonna see the house everyday? They're on opposite sides of Sunset Blvd, each back in their own neighborhood.

Why does Varooka Salt (from Willie Wanka and the Chocolate Factory) come to mind? "I want a mansion in Beverly Hills, Daddy and I want it now"

Petra Ecclestone obviously has something she is trying to compensate for......daddy's love? I mean, good for you if you can afford to live this way-that is great. But trying to figure out why a 22 year old, or anyone for that matter needs that much space. Fill it with STUFF cause your life is so empty?
