                $25,000,000

                Supermodel and TV powerhouse, Heidi Klum, is saying “Auf Wiedersehen” to her stunning Brentwood estate. She just listed the 8 bedroom, 10 bathroom, 12,300 square foot property for $25 million. 

                According to listing details, 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. 

                Heidi recounts the first time she heard about the property, saying “when I first heard about this available property, 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… 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.”

                However, 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 estate into a warm family home.

                Heidi’s team of talented people worked extensively for over six months to replace every window, re-stain all the gorgeous woodwork, upgrade all the appliances and fixtures, design dream closets, build a master bath with views of the ocean and expand the garden.

                The time, energy and patience poured into the restoration paid off. Heidi says, “by the time we finished, the house was as incredible as its grounds and views. Sometimes I sit in the garden, drinking my coffee, looking at the Pacific, and really feel it is a little piece of Heaven. I think others will love the house as much as I have.”

                Set on 8.5 acres with approximately three prime acres of flat land, the grounds have an 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.

                A perfect Los Angeles escape.

                  After dropping $40 million on Tom Brady and Gisele’s insane French Chateau-style mansion, Dr. Dre just listed his former home in the ‘Bird Streets’ of the Hollywood Hills for $35 million.

                  The rapper, producer and headphone mogul just inked a deal with Apple to sell the company he started with music industry legend Jimmy Iovine for $3 billion.

                  Dre purchased the home on December 21, 2011 for $15,400,000.

                  According to the listing, Dre’s for-sale estate is “without question, the best View estate in the city.” Perched atop a promontory and gated at the end of a cul-de-sac, this home has a jetliner 300 degree vista with lights sparkling from downtown to the Pacific Ocean. With a flat, expansive, grassy yard, infinity edge pool – all overlooking the most striking views and setting in Los Angeles. Completely rebuilt in 2001, the sprawling home features a library/media, den, guest house, and wine cellar, all in total serenity and privacy.

                      Selena Gomez is selling her Tarzana, CA ‘starter home,’ asking $3,495,000 for the stunning 6 bedroom, 8 bathroom, 6,630 square foot compound.

                      The Disney star, turned rehab-attending Justin Bieber ex-girlfriend has had a rocky year, filled with salacious tabloid headlines. With all of that (hopefully) behind her, Gomez is making changes on the home front. First, she fired her parents as her management team.

                      Second, she bought some brand new digs.

                      In March 2014, she paid $3.69 million for a gated mansion in Calabasas – the very same LA suburb where ex-bf Justin Bieber terrorized his neighbors before subsequently selling his sprawling pad to none other than Khloe Kardashian.

                      Now that she’s nestled into a Bieber-free Calabasas spread, she’s selling the home she’s lived in since July 2011, when she paid $2,175,000 for the pad. In the time she’s owned it, the multi-winged house has gotten some upgrades, additions and remodels…thus the much-higher asking price.

                      Now, Selena’s new-to-the-market home is a gorgeous and luxurious ‘compound’ on an entire acre. A lavish upstairs guest suite has its own separate entrance, a full kitchen, two bathrooms, two walk-in closets, and is encircled by a balcony that overlooks the entire grounds.

                      The newly built downstairs media room has a bar that opens to the outdoor BBQ and firepit lounge area – perfect for parties!

                      Outside, there’s a pool, spa, shaded outdoor pergola, Bocce Ball court, fruit tree orchard, full basketball court with lights, plus additional room for a full tennis court.
