Heidi Klum’s Los Angeles Estate Hits the Market
The supermodel and mom of four said that she fell in love with the property because it felt like the South of France.
Heidi Klum is ready to say
auf wiedersehen to her palatial Mediterranean-style villa in Brentwood Estates, the home she purchased while married to “Kiss From a Rose” crooner Seal. Set on eight acres off Mandeville Canyon, the estate was in
foreclosure and had sat empty for two years when the power couple plunked down over $14 million for it.
“When I first heard about [it], I was a bit skeptical when I was told it had been empty for a long time. As a busy working mother with four young children, I was hoping to find a home that was essentially turnkey,” said Klum. “I knew that homes that are unoccupied for any length of time do not always get the attention they need, and I wasn't looking for a project.”
That all changed when she actually saw the home. Klum said that she no longer felt like she was in Los Angeles, rather the South of France. So, she and Seal rolled up their haute couture sleeves and wrote some checks, spending several million on renovations. Doors and woodwork were restored, windows replaced and a master bath overlooking the Pacific Ocean was added. All appliances were upgraded and custom
closets befitting a supermodel were constructed.

Heidi Klum’s 12,000-square-foot Los Angeles estate is on the market for $25 million. The smart home went through a complete renovation and restoration and boasts an infinity pool with spa.
The grounds that Heidi fell in love with also got a facelift.
“By the time we finished, the house was as incredible as its grounds and views,” she Klum. “Sometimes I sit in the garden, drinking my coffee, looking at the Pacific, and really feel it is a little piece of Heaven.”
Lynn Teschner of The Agency said that Klum is already working on another Los Angeles project home. You can see more information at the
