Model life at Yolanda Hadid’s former Malibu mansion

The famous Malibu home once owned by Yolanda Hadid, a star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, is now up for sale, priced just under US$35 million.

This Mediterranean-inspired villa first captured the public’s attention in 2013 with its luxurious interiors, including the much-talked-about glass-front produce fridge.

Yolanda Hadid, former model and mother to models Gigi, Bella, and Anwar Hadid, purchased the property in 2007 for US$4.5 million, according to the Robb Report.

She extensively renovated the estate, working with a team of 100 builders to create the perfect home, which she later shared with her then-husband, Grammy-winning composer David Foster.

Hadid sold the six-bedroom, 11-bathroom mansion in 2015 for US$19.5 million to Robert F. Smith, founder of Vista Equity Partners, and his wife, Hope.

In 2019, the property was leased to reality TV star Kylie Jenner for US$450,000 a month.

The residence is set on a 3.2-acre bluff-top parcel along the Pacific Coast Highway, offering breathtaking views of the ocean and the Santa Monica Mountains.

Spanning nearly 1086sq m across three levels, the home features soaring ceilings, dark hardwood floors, and walls of glass that enhance its spacious feel.

The villa’s standout features include resort-style grounds with an infinity-edge pool, a fire pit, an al fresco dining area, and a hillside lemon orchard.

The home also boasts a formal dining area, a glamorous living room, a cozy family room with a fireplace, a wood-panelled study, a plush movie theatre, and a game room with a wet bar.
