The Property

High-powered businesswoman and dedicated house renovator Heidi Klum is bidding “Auf Wiedersehen” to her home in Brentwood Country Estates.

The Italian-style villa, completed in 1999, has been given the Heidi makeover—a complete renovation that revived and refreshed a front-row oceanview estate in the premier guard-gated community in Brentwood, located off bucolic Mandeville Canyon.

The Emmy Award–winning executive producer and host of “Project Runway” and judge on “Germany’s Next Topmodel” and the top-rated “America’s Got Talent” tapped her creative skills to transform the 12,300-square-foot, 8-bedroom 10-bath estate into a warm family home.

Iron gates open to a central motor court with a fountain. Radiating out from the double-height entrance hall are the main living areas—formal living room, formal dining room with wood paneling imported from a private dining room of a hotel in Paris, library with ornate ebonized wood bookcase that came from Napoleon’s country home in France, eat-in chef’s kitchen, butler’s pantry, family room, home office, media room and temperature-controlled wine cellar.The high-ceilinged, perfectly proportioned rooms and hallways provide plenty of gallery-like wall space for art and photography. French doors offer access to multiple terraces and patios for a variety of outdoor dining and entertaining options.

Upstairs, the master suite consists of a bedroom, living room, terrace with ocean views, his and her custom closets and his and her bathrooms. There are 7 other bedrooms, including a professionally customized dressing/styling room.

Set on approx. 8.5 acres with approx. 3 acres of flat land, the grounds have ample recreational spaces for adults and children—infinity-edge pool and spa, koi pond, formal rose garden, fountains, lawns, gazebos, rolling green for golf putting and driving, children’s playhouse and slide, secret gardens and hiking trails—all with unobstructed ocean views and complete privacy.

Offered at $25 million.
