Heidi Klum first became an international star with her 1998 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cover and the inside pages of provocative bikini beach poses. With that introduction to her charms, Klum catapulted herself to celebrity status through a 13-year career with Victoria’s Secret as a favorite Angel, then as producer and host of Project Runway and Germany’s Next Topmodel, and now in her second season as a judge on America’s Got Talent. In addition, she has been working the deal with activewear company New Balance, for which she designs a line of athletic apparel, branded HKNB that is sold exclusively on Amazon. Heidi recently signed a contract for 20 episodes of a new show on Lifetime, Seriously Funny Kids. The powerhouse German-American dual citizenship hottie, now at age 41 and mother of four, shows no signs of slowing down. She can now list her professional achievements as super model, business mogul, actress, TV producer and host, fashion designer, artist, talent judge and with her keen business sense, is now venturing into restoring and selling real estate.
Purchased in 2010 as a foreclosure for $14.2 million, this Brentwood Estates 12,000-square-foot Tuscan-style villa sits on 8.4 lush acres with views to the Pacific. With its total privacy and ambiance that seemed miles away from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles, Klum fell in love with the property at first sight. A few of the home's features include long-established gardens, a library bookcase from Napoleon's country house, and dining room with paneling from a Paris hotel. Since it had been empty for two years, Heidi immediately started restoring doors, windows and thresholds; a process that took several months. After that, she added an additional master bath, affording a his and hers, and placed the tub for views of the ocean. She also designed her dream closets and added smart home technology. Now with eight bedrooms and ten baths, the home also has formal rooms, library, eat-in chef’s kitchen, butler’s pantry, family room, home office, media room, yoga room and temperature-controlled wine cellar with tasting room.
Outside is the infinity-edge pool and spa, a koi pond, formal rose garden added by Klum, fountains, gazebos, golf putting green and driving range, hiking trails, a children’s playhouse and slide and the charm of secret gardens. Since downsizing to another property, Klum has decided to put this home on the currently hot Los Angeles market. For more information.
