Inside Tyra Banks’ $1.4M mansion.
The busy model-mogulmom adds a chic LA town house to her property portfolio
From supermodel to makeup mogul to TV host, Tyra Banks is one of Hollywood’s busiest ladies. Her secret to success? “I pivot constantly in my career,” says the America’s Got Talent star, 43. Apparently changing things up applies to her real estate portfolio, as well. Just weeks after listing a New York City apartment for $17.5M, Tyra scooped up a two-bedroom, three-bathroom town house in LA’S Pacific Palisades neighborhood for $1.355 million. Tyra already owns two houses in the area and may plan to use this as an investment property,
but the Mediterranean-style pad offers plenty should she and photographer beau Erik Asla decide to move in with their 19-month-old son, York. Originally built in 1977, the 1,800-square-foot unit has been updated with spalike bathrooms and a sleek modern kitchen. Meanwhile, vaulted ceilings and oversize windows make the open living-dining area seem colossal. But even the poshest of amenities can’t compete with the home’s stunning canyon views. Not too shabby for a former bullied kid. “You say I can’t do it?” says Tyra. “Watch me!”
Chic Eating Tyra’s new kitchen features luxe chocolate brown cabinets, a breakfast bar and highend stainless-steel appliances — including a supersize fridge. It’s a modelhome for a supermodel! For that cash, she could buy 79,705 lip gloss tubes from her TYRA beauty line!
Room With a View The master suite’s private balcony is the perfect place for the $90 million woman to escape and enjoy gorgeous mountain vistas.
