Ever wonder what it takes to pack up a 123-room mega-mansion? Well now you can find out for yourself.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Candy Spelling’s move from her luxurious Los Angeles home was filmed for a documentary and will air in a two-part documentary, the first part which airs Thursday night on HGTV.

Titled Selling Spelling Manor, viewers can watch the late TV mogul Aaron Spelling’s wife as she moves out of the home she’s been living in for the past 20 years.

UK’s Daily Mail reported the mansion, known as The Manor, is a whopping 56,000 square feet and has 14 bedrooms and 27 bathrooms.

It was bought by British Formula 1 heiress Petra Ecclestone for the asking price of $85 million. And while it holds several memories and cherished moments for Spelling and her family, 22-year-old Ecclestone is reportedly re-decorating the home, replacing its antique features for more modern fixtures.

Spelling needed 30 moving vans to move all her stuff, some of which will be stored in storage units, others of which will be placed in her new 16,000 square foot penthouse condo.

The documentary will also show intimate photos of the home and its former residents. Part two airs January 2.
