America’s Got Talent judge Heidi Klum is selling her Brentwood Country Estates home for $25 million.
The German-born supermodel bought the Italian-style villa four years ago with former husband Seal and then gave it a complete Heidi makeover that transformed the 12,300 square feet property into her own ‘little piece of heaven’.
Located in a secure gated community near Mandeville Canyon in one of the most prominent neighborhoods in Los Angeles, the home had been lying empty for two years before Klum fell in love with it and bought it for $14.2 million. She once said that the house made her feel that she was no longer in Los Angeles but reminded her of a house in the South of France.
Klum later spent several millions on renovating the house, replacing its doors and windows, adding dream closets and upgrading home appliances and security.
In addition to a master bedroom with an awe-inspiring view of the Pacific, Klum’s home also has seven other bedrooms, 10 baths, a formal dining room which is a reconstruction of a private dining room of a hotel in Paris, a temperature-controlled wine cellar and a grand library with an ornate wooden bookcase that once graced Napoleon’s country home in France.
The grounds boast of a motor court with a fountain, an infinity pool and spa, a formal rose garden, rolling greens for golf putting, a playhouse and slide for children, ‘hidden’ gardens, hiking trails and many other delightful features spread across several acres of land.
Klum has already taken on a new house project in Los Angeles. She is currently renovating a home in Bel-Air which she bought last year for $9.875 million, reports the Wall Street Journal.
