Fresh off the $4-million sale of a New York City apartment, supermodel and reality television titan Tyra Banks has listed one of her Southern California mansions—a Spanish villa in the coveted 90210 ZIP code—for $7.75 million. The 6,040-square-foot, renovated home has charm up to here. Built in 1926, it retains that era’s tiled fountains, French doors and clerestory windows overlooking a loggia and expansive lawn. The floors are clad throughout with travertine stone and maple planks. The master suite, which boasts city views, includes a sitting room, walk-in closet and safe room.
Entertaining is a breeze inside and out, with a chef’s kitchen and formal living and dining rooms, plus an outdoor living room and kitchen, the latter with a fire pit and seating for 12 beside the pool in a walled garden. “I was not looking for another home until I discovered a property in the Malibu hills through a friend,” the America’s Next Top Model and FABLife host told the Wall Street Journal.
