Tyra Banks' luxurious penthouse and a ski getaway for Hollywood royalty

Hot Houses: See how the 'Top Model' mogul really lives and peek inside Jeffrey Katzenberg's Utah ski getaway


Each week Fox News picks three over-the-top luxury listings from Mansion Global.

This week we have Tyra Banks’ Manhattan penthouse, Jeffrey Katzenberg’s Utah ski getaway and a gorgeous glass mansion in Switzerland.

Supermodel and television star Tyra Banks is looking to unload her massive Manhattan penthouse now that she’s spending so much of her time in Los Angeles.

The five-bedroom, eight-bathroom duplex penthouse is located on River Terrace, next to Rockefeller Park and the Hudson River. Leonardo DiCaprio also happens to have an apartment in the building, in case you’re into that kind of thing.

Banks paid just over $10 million for the 7,000-square-foot Battery Park City apartment in 2010 and used it as her primary residence for about four years.


The penthouse boasts a library, a corner living room, a chef’s kitchen, a gym and an office. All rooms have floor-to-ceiling wrap-around windows and offer exquisite views of the Statue of Liberty and Hudson River.

No Top Model home would be complete without its very own salon. This one comes with a 360-degree mirrored dressing room, perfect for striking a pose.

Of course there are also full staff quarters and a staff kitchen.

It can all be yours for $17.5 million.

Studio executive and big time film producer Jeffrey Katzenberg has just listed his massive Utah ski getaway in Deer Valley.

Katzenberg nicknamed the property “The Family Trap,” because it was a place the family might actually enjoy being stuck together on an extended vacation.

At just over 14,000 square feet, the house is divided into two wings, making it feel like two separate homes—with plenty of room for parents to get privacy.

There are seven bedrooms, seven full bathrooms and three partial bathrooms. There’s a billiard room, a game room, a ski room, an indoor pool and sauna.

From the house, you have a kid-friendly ski-on-ski-off access via a beginner’s trail. The house also has a tremendous amount of outdoor living space. All of the decks and porches are heated.

The home is located in the private Bald Eagle Club, the most exclusive private gated community in Deer Valley.

The property is currently on the market for $12.9 million.

But if you’re looking for something a little more out of the way, look no further than this glass walled penthouse in Switzerland with picture perfect views of Lake Lugano and the stunning Swiss Alps.


This 5,457-square-foot home has three bedrooms and five full bathrooms.

The property is specially designed to accommodate indoor-outdoor living and a large covered deck offers plenty of space for dining and relaxing against the gorgeous backdrop.

The sprawling living room contains sliding doors that also open to terraces.

The home also features a private outdoor swimming pool with an outdoor kitchen and a pergola lit by an LED-clad wall. Additionally, there’s a fitness center with a sauna and Turkish bath, a home theater, and a sports court.

So what will it cost you? Just $12 million.
