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.
