Location: Los Angeles, California
Selling Price: $14,200,000
Heidi Klum and Seal obtained this foreclosure in the Brentwood Country Estates community following a bidding war last year, reportedly paying significantly more than the $13,400,000 asking price.
The 12,300 square foot home has 9 bedrooms and 7 baths and is situated on 8.52 acres—plenty of room for the model/“Project Runway” hostess, the singer, and their four children, who also have a playhouse, because their parents are Heidi Klum and Seal.
Although it’s a newer construction (circa 1999), it has a distinct, ivy-covered Old World feel: one antique feature is a 1603 Scottish fireplace mantle, a formal dining room imported from the Parisian Pierre Hotel, and elsewhere dark wood paneling in a classic-style library featuring a fireplace said to be taken from Napoleon’s farmhouse, and out back lovely Italian gardens and reflecting pools offer mountain and valley views. Among their fortunate neighbors are other famous couples, governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and journalist Maria Shriver, as well as model Gisele Bundchen and football player Tom Brady.
