In pics: Heidi Klum's amazing home

BEAUTIFUL EXTERIOR: This gorgeous greenery would require some serious upkeep, but we imagine that if you've got an extra 20-or-so million lying around you can afford the help.

IF THESE BOOKSHELVES COULD TALK: Perhaps the most impressive feature of all are the bookshelves, which were originally owned by Napoleon himself.

Heidi Klum, the model and television producer, has listed her gated estate in Los Angeles' Brentwood neighbourhood for sale at $US25 million ($NZ28million), and it's a beauty.

The Italianesque mansion, built in 1999, is on 8.5 acres with rose gardens, lawns, a koi pond, hiking trails and an infinity-edge swimming pool and spa.

Views take in the ocean, nearby canyons and cityscape. The 12,300 square feet of living space, renovated by Klum, feature a domed library with a fireplace, a wine temperature-controlled room and a master suite with a sitting room, dual closets and a terrace.

A massive bookcase in the library came from Napoleon's country retreat in France (now that's fancy).

There are living, family and dining rooms, a butler's pantry, a den, an office, a projection room, seven additional bedrooms and 9.5 bathrooms. French doors open to patios and terraces.

It seems reality TV is mighty lucrative. 

Klum, 41, won an Emmy for hosting Project Runway, which she also executive produces. She has been a judge on America's Got Talent and Germany's Next Top Model.

The occasional actress and serial home remodeller bought the property in 2010 with then-husband Seal, the R&B singer, for $US14.2 million, public records show. The villa was used as a family home.
