Cheryl Tiegs Lists Balinese Style House in Bel Air
LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
SIZE: 4,770 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms
YOUR MAMAS NOTES: America's first supermodel (and not so successful contestant on Celebrity Apprentice a few seasons ago) Cheryl Tiegs has put her long time home in Los Angeles's prime East Gate Bel Air area on the market with a $12,000,000 price tag.
Property records show Miz Tiegs purchased the 1.43 acre property in May 1996 for an unknown amount of dough. Current listing information shows the 4,770 square foot house has a total of four bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms including a staff room, guest house (with bathroom) and a roomy master bedroom with fireplace, sitting area and spa-style bathroom slathered in sea grass and what listing details ambiguously call "rich woodwork."
The house was all did up and done over in haute Balinese inspired style by effervescently flamboyant Million Dollar Decorator Martyn Lawrence Bullard. The main living area have dark wood floors, a soaring vaulted ceiling held aloft by sturdy carved wood columns and long banks and wood-framed sliding glass doors that suck up the view of the surrounding thicket of mature tropical landscaping.
Listing details go on to reveal there's a wine cellar and to describe the eat-in kitchen as "spacious." And it is spacious with a butcher block topped Subaru-sized center island and industrial style appliances but it's also a bit wacky and dated with a low textured ceiling and a high gloss cream and black tiled floor.
Thee lushly planted grounds include a long gated driveway, a good-sized motor court, three car attached garage in the back, a kidney-shaped swimming pool and various meandering pathways, towering palms and several fountains.
