Tyra Banks Snaps Up Pacific Palisades Pad

BUYER: Tyra Banks
LOCATION: Pacific Palisades, CA
PRICE: $3,295,000
SIZE: 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: Several months ago Your Mama was having a friendly chit-chat with L.A. real estate mover and shaker Sammy Sassypants who told us that word was making its way down the Platinum Triangle real estate gossip grapevine that veteran supermodel turned reality television magnate Tyra Banks was quietly shopping for a new house in Tinseltown.

Fast forward to this week when real estate yenta Yolanda Yakketyyak sent a digital carrier pigeon to let us know that Miz Banks (via blind trust) shelled out $3.295 million for a freshly built residence just a few blocks from downtown Pacific Palisades. Lucy Spillerguts later told Your Mama that Miz Banks is connected to the property but could not say whether she plans to occupy the property that, while expensive by any standard, isn’t exactly as grand as one might imagine Miz Banks might choose for herself. (For what it’s worth, this property gossip thinks the property might have been purchased as an investment or for/by her mother, Carolyn London, an executive at her daughter’s New York City-based production company, Bankable Productions.)

Whatever the case, listing details we teased out of the internets do not indicate the square footage of the brand-new two-story house but do indicate there are four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms plus a den that could be pressed in to use as a fifth bedroom as desired.

Other features and finishes include an open floor plan with high ceilings and over-sized windows, wide-plank white oak floors, a Euro-designed kitchen with quartz counter tops, master bedroom with fireplace and master bathroom with Calacatta marble-lined shower. Other features called out in marketing materials include an LED lighting program throughout the house and an outdoor living area with fireplace.

Your Mama’s research shows Miz Banks — we’re talkin’ Tyra here — owns a hefty handful of multi-million dollar homes on both coasts. In Beverly Hills she owns a nearly 6,000-square-foot house she picked up in 2004 for $3.085 million and, in the affluent Ladera Heights area, she owns a 3,576-square-foot home where this property gossip is pretty sure her mother lives. In New York City, Banks owns a 2,000-square-foot-plus apartment in SoHo she bought in March 2005 for $2.065 million as well as a cluster of contiguous apartments in Battery Park City she scooped up early 2009 for a bit more than $10 million.
