Anglophile Gwyneth Paltrow has decided to grace us in LA with a little homebuying: TMZ reports she and Coldplayer/husband Chris Martin are in escrow on a Windsor Smith-designed house in Mandeville Canyon. The house is already somewhat notable as the Veranda concept house--the magazine brought in a set of designers last year (including Peter Dunham and Martyn Lawrence Bullard) to each make over a room. The house has six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and some brokerbabble straight out of GOOP: "Reminiscent of a home in the horse country of Kentucky?" The property was originally listed last September at $11.96 million and was chopped this spring to $10.45 million. It's not clear yet what Paltrow and Martin agreed to pay.
