SOLD | Built 1951 | 4,770 Sq. Ft. | 4 Beds | 4.5 Baths | 1.44 Acres
After sitting on the market for several years, former supermodel Cheryl Tiegs has officially sold her stunning Bel Air estate for a little more than $14 million! According to Variety, the buyers, billionaire Fox media heir Lachlan Murdoch and his model-actress wife Sarah Murdoch, are also the next door neighbours! Murdoch made headlines in December 2019 when he purchased the historic Chartwell Estate for a record-setting $150 million. Chartwell Estate extends 10.39 acres and if he plans on combining the two properties, he’ll end up with nearly 12 acres. The Balinese-styled estate originally listed in 2013 for $12 million before relisting in 2015 for $15 million. The property was taken off the market and relisted in September 2019 for $18.5 million. It was originally built in 1951 and purchased by Tiegs in 1996 for a mere $2.49 million.
The 4,770 square foot, 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom residence sits in seclusion behind private gates and features a spacious open floor plan with a great room and lofty ceilings. The home also includes a chef’s kitchen with professional appliances. A spa bath, fireplace, and seating area are all features of the home’s master suite and the property also comes with a guesthouse, three-car garage, office and distant city views! Cheryl Tiegs has been featured on the covers of magazines such as Glamour, Vogue, and Harper’s Bazzar. The home was on the market with Jade Mills of Coldwell Banker Realty.
