Cheryl Tiegs

BEL AIR, CA -- Cheryl Tiegs was America’s favorite model in the 1970s and ‘80s as the three-time cover girl for Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues, four-time covers on People and three times at Time.

Her ‘70’s posters in a white fishnet bathing suit and then her pink bikini photo solidified her role as America’s first baby-boomer supermodel.

 Almost as beautiful as Cheryl, her Balinese-style Bel Air home is for sale at $18.5 million, according to

Alphonzo Bell Sr.

Tiegs’ enclave is situated on 1.43 lush acres behind gates that open to a long drive giving privacy and entrance into something that feels much more like the deep tropics than suburban Los Angeles.
Perched on a promontory with 180-degree views, it is awash in palm trees, huge Monstera vines and tropical flowers throughout the home’s landscape and pathways.

 The house itself is a study in bold natural elements, textures and colors from fabrics, floors, dark-wood beams, glass walls opening to vegetation and stunning views.

The 4,770-square-foot house has five bedrooms, five baths, 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.

Cheryl began modeling when she was 17 appearing on the covers of Glamour, Seventeen and Elle.

 Her fresh-faced beauty inspired teenaged girls and young women to buy her beauty book, The Way to Natural Beauty, in the hope that they would discover some wonderful secret that would turn them into glamour girls too.

Ahead of her time and a natural entrepreneur, Cheryl was noted for being first at many things we take for granted today including the first model to start a signature line of clothing and accessories, which were sold exclusively at Sears.

Tiffany Mills 

During the 10-year life of that business, almost a billion dollars of her merchandise was sold.

With her modeling career taking her all over the world, Cheryl was able to pick from her own experiences how she wanted to live.
When it came time to buy her own home, she found solace and inspiration in the Balinese way of life and duplicated that environment in her own Southern California home.
Bel Air was originally developed in the 1920s by oilman and tennis-champion Alphonzo Bell Sr. intended as something similar to Beverly Hills but without the celebrities.

Jade Mills
 Despite Alphonzo’s plans, celebrities who now make Bel Air home include Cheryl, Jennifer Aniston, Jay-Z and Beyonce.
Also not far from Cheryl’s home is a 1930’s Bel Air estate that is the most expensive home currently for sale in the United States at $225 million.
Jade Mills and Tiffany Mills of Coldwell Banker Global Luxury, Beverly Hills are the listing agents for the Tiegs property.

Trez Forman Closes $45.4 Million Loan for Tri-State Area Mixed-Use Redevelopment in Darien, CT

 Brett D. Forman 
 New York City and Palm Beach, FL -- Trez Forman Capital, with offices in Atlanta, Ga. and Palm Beach, Fla., funded a $45.4 million loan for a mixed-use redevelopment in the New York City metropolitan area. 

The project, Noroton Heights, is the first redevelopment in the Town of Darien, Connecticut in many years.

The transaction closed on Nov. 15. Noroton Heights & Company, LLC is the borrower and affiliated parties own and operate the adjacent Palmer’s Market.

Trez Forman President and CEO Brett D. Forman and Russ Holland from the firm’s Atlanta office Managing Director arranged the financing.

Located on four acres at 264 and 346 Heights Road, Noroton Heights is planned to include retail, restaurants, 59 apartments and an underground parking garage.

Russ Holland 
Four existing buildings constructed in 1960 are set to be demolished to make way for the construction of three brand-new buildings. Construction of a skybridge connecting two of the buildings is also planned.

Darien is primarily a commuter town, as many residents work in nearby New York City. The Noroton Heights metro north rail station connects to the redevelopment site.

“We are thrilled to expand our tri-state portfolio with this new loan,” said Forman. “Noroton Heights is a project that fills a void for new apartments, retail and restaurants to service the many commuters who rely on the rail station. We continue to aggressively monitor the region for similar opportunities.”
