Heidi Klum buys new Los Angeles home

Supermodel Heidi Klum and husband Seal are buying an eight-bedroom mansion worth $ 13.4 million.

The couple have fallen in love with the 12,300 square-foot Mediterranean-style home in Brentwood, Los Angeles and have reportedly had an offer accepted, The Hollywood Reporter said.

Rebecca Ross, a Hilton & Hyland estate agent who had the listing for the property, has refused to disclose the identity of the buyer but said it had sold for "significantly more than the asking price" of $13.4 million.

"There were multiple buyers interested, so there was a bidding war," she added.

The lavish property – which was previously owned by an investment banker – was first put on the market in October after failing to sell at a June auction.

The house boasts eight bedrooms, a kitchen complete with a fireplace dating back to 1603 which was imported from Scotland and a library fireplace which is allegedly from late military leader Napoleon’s farmhouse in France.

When Heidi and Seal move into the house, which is part of the Brentwood Country Estates gated community in Mandeville Canyon, their neighbours will include California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and TV journalist Maria Shriver.(PTI)
