    Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Martin buy L.A. equestrian estate

    The neighborhood horsey set includes Heidi Klum, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Gisele Bundchen. The 8-figure, 8,000-square-foot, white-brick manse was inspired by Kentucky horse country.

    The ritzy retreat was designed by "lifestyle architect" Windsor Smith in collaboration with a collective of interior design stars.

    Gwyneth Paltrow is buying a deluxe equestrian estate in the southern California showbiz stronghold that’s also home to supermodels Heidi Klum and Gisele Bundchen, a source confirmed to the Daily News.
    The six bedroom, eight bathroom mansion in Brentwood, Calif., graced Veranda Magazine’s October cover and was listed recently at $10.5 million, down more than a million from last year.
    Paltrow, now shooting "Iron Man 3" in the states, and her British rocker hubby Chris Martin are paying close to asking for the acre of park-like grounds dotted with shady sycamore and oak trees, TMZ.com reported.
    The Brentwood manse includes a professional kitchen, wide-plank hardwood floors, glimmering fixtures and a built-in gourmet outdoor BBQ.







    The ritzy retreat, also close to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s house, was designed by “lifestyle architect” Windsor Smith and furnished by a cast of interior design stars for a Veranda-sponsored showcase.
    “I really wanted to create a new template if you will, a new model for how I believe vibrant young families live today,” Smith told Veranda.





    She said the master suite has a paneled closet that doubles as a lounge to “bring intimacy back to couples.”
    The horse stable was designed by Kathryn Ireland, star of Bravo’s "Million Dollar Decorators."
    Realtor Kathleen Tuthill was not available for comment.
    The 8,000-square-foot Mandeville Canyon spread includes a professional gourmet kitchen, luxurious wood-paneled walls, high ceilings and a built-in outdoor BBQ center.

    This has nothing to do with "home and garden", BUT...

    Whenever I see these two together (even in side by side pics), that I automatically think, that they have only had sex two times since they have been married.

    I rather like the last room, but overall I think it tries too hard to be stylin'.

    Just think, all of these rooms, will inspire a Goop post.

    I'd take it in a heartbeat. Every bit of it.

    I actually thought this would be way worse, but I see a lot of potential in parts of the house. One thing I didn't get was those marble pillars that come out of nowhere. At first I thought they were trompe l'oeil pillars, but they're actually 3D. I love marble when it's done right, but that part is approaching RHWONJ territory.

    I only like the adorable little outbuilding. I'd keep it and sell off the rest of that crap.

    I hope Apple and Moses don't spill organic juice all over that white.

    I don't understand why these two can never ever be pictured together and barely ever make reference to being with one another (at least that's the way it seems). It's like they're not even married, really. If they didn't have those rabbity-looking kids I wouldn't even believe they were married.

    I know this place has gotta be staged, but everything on the tables and in the bookcases (nice built-ins!) is placed JUST SO. There's nothing casually tossed around, and none of the couches or chairs say "have a seat" to me. I love the outside, and the little outbuilding (outhouse?).

    ^Same, I love the outside but the inside is too cluttered and I hate all the light fixtures, and in general it tries to be too country with the ugly kitchen and heavy wooden dining set. But if the horsies come with it I'd buy it!
