Cheryl Tiegs was the model in the 1970s and ’80s. She graced the covers of Sports Illustrated‘s Swimsuit Issue, People and Time. Her famed posters — in a white fishnet bathing suit and then her pink bikini — solidified her as the top model of her generation.

Now retired, Cheryl is selling her Balinese-style Bel Air home for a cool $18.5 million. But for that price you can purchase a truly breathtaking property in Los Angeles.

Perched on a promontory with 180-degree views and awash in palm trees, huge Monstera vines and tropical flowers, Tiegs’s house features bold natural elements, textures and colors. From her choice of fabrics, dark wood beams, glass walls opening to vegetation and stunning views, the property feels more tropical than suburban. 

The 4,770-square-foot house has five bedrooms, five baths, a chef’s kitchen with large butcher block island, huge open spaces for entertaining both inside and out, a wine cellar, pool, guest house and three-car garage.

Tiegs traveled extensively throughout her career. When it came time to design her own home, she found inspiration in the Balinese way of life. Take a look inside the Bali-meets-LA vibe of this stunning property.
