Monday Mish Mash: Seal

According to the celebrity gossip juggernaut TMZ, Heidi Klum's ex-husband and baby daddy Seal made a formal offer to purchase a newly constructed and very contemporary 5,500 square foot crib squeezed onto a 6,115 square foot triangular shaped lot in a swank but low-key area of L.A.'s affluent and celeb-friendly Brentwood community.

Listing information for the the walled and gated three level green home, listed at $6,000,000, shows there are four bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, an open-concept living and dining area, two sleek kitchens with Euro appliances, a den and an office and a media room and fitness room in the basement.


Besides a couple of terraces with verdant tree-top views, outdoor space is limited to a good size deck and a strip of grass so narrow even Your Mama's long-bodied bitches, Linda and Beverly, would have a tough time getting their play on.

In June 2011 the erstwhile couple sold their former Beverly Hills estate at a substantial loss for $7,000,000—they bought it in late 2005 for $7,600,000—and, as far as Your Mama knows, Miz Klum and their children remain ensconced in the 12,300 square foot mock-Med mansion in the upper reaches of Brentwood above Mandeville Canyon that they bought out of foreclosure for $14,200,000 back in late 2010.

It reminds me of the former Norm Zada Beverly Park mansion that they originally wanted to buy before settling in the more traditional house in Brentwood.

The house itself is a lovely composition totally marred by a super-stingy lot, no pool, and a price-tag that could choke a horse.

Other than that...

Like l'il gay boy said, the house is amazing. But the location? Lawd, poor me a Gin and Tonic quick. He's down the street from an office building and behind condos! Aack!

Look at the map:

It's literally a foot away from the next-door neighbors. No thank you.

He's not buying that house. But it was very smart of the broker to leak the fact that he looked at it because now someone who might actually find that location acceptable (though not at that price), might actually make an offer.

Great house, horrible location. so sad. What a waste. I can't imagine who would be willing to spend in that price range for that location.

One needs to know how the house is framed. In wood, or in steel? Wood framed houses like this tend to warp with time and the clean angles end up not so clean. You need to frame such a house in steel and I suspect this one is not.

He must have gotten hosed in the divorce if he is buying this.

Seal is just looking at homes to see what's on the market. He's not ready to purchase anything at this time. He saw the house once with his real estate agent, stayed inside 10 minutes and did NOT make an offer and quite frankly is not interested at all. Crazy how information gets twisted in this town.

is that a lap pool or a water feature on the left in the second set of photos (and yes, I realize, if you have to ask..)

I find nothing attractive about this house. Surely he could find something better. Maybe he is waiting thinking he is going to get his hands on some of her money.
