21 Incredible and Luxurious Celebrity Homes
As you probably are aware, celebrity homes are often known for their luxury and flair, but these custom mansions and estates will make your jaw drop. With spacious and carefully planned floorplans (many about ten times the size of a normal American home) and beyond-high-end finishes, they are a sight to behold. It wouldn't be fitting for a major celebrity to live in a starter home, but these homes take the concept of "mansion" to whole new heights. Think Buckingham Palace meets Disneyland. Outrageous features lie around every corner, whether it includes expansive lawns that require full-time crews to maintain, or a bowling alley with multiple lanes.
It's not a secret that most of these stars make a very large sum of money on a yearly basis. It would be ridiculous for them to not invest it in the finer things in life - cars, clothes, jewelry, and, last, but not least, luxury mansions and estates with all the frills of a five-star hotel. From full-sized movie screens to private golf courses, these homes put some of the country's top spa resorts to shame. The best part is, they don't need to leave the comfort of home to enjoy all of these incredible amenities.
Have we piqued your curiosity? Are you wondering what sort of money spreads like these cost? $1 million? Think again. $2 million? Nope. That's a weekend getaway for these celebrities! They've gone all-in, spending whatever it takes to create the home (or homes!) of their dreams. Take a peek into the lives and luxuries these celebrities have invested in. Take a look at these top ten celebrities and their incredibly plush abodes. After viewing this list, you'll never look at your own home the same way!
21. Oprah Winfrey
Oprah's home in Montecito, California is perhaps one of the most opulent and expensive, weighing in at $85 million. This 42 acre spread houses a huge mansion with six bedrooms, fourteen baths, ten fireplaces, an indoor fish lake and its very own cinema.
20. Pharrell Williams
Pharrell is a glitzy guy, and so is his gorgeous estate in Hollywood, right near the Sunset Strip. For only $7 million, he got a pad with an infinity pool, floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the city and a rooftop deck. Oh, and not to forget the inside, with its 4,000 square feet and six bedrooms.
19. Chris Martin
For a tidy $14 million, this beautiful Malibu house offers Chris Martin the best of LA, with incredible outdoor spaces on one acre of land and a spacious 3,600 square foot house with four bedrooms, three baths, and a great kitchen.
18. Harry Styles
Harry may not be able to be in London all the time, but he can make himself at home in his Beverly Hills bachelor pad. For $4 million, he was able to land 3,000 square feet with five bedrooms, four-and-one-half baths, a library/study, gym and outdoor lounge area.
17. Simon Cowell
A 9,335 house in Beverly Hills is home to American Idol judge Simon Cowell. He had it custom-built to his specifications, with six bedrooms, six baths, a lap pool, gym, professional tanning salon, steam room and luxury spa. When he's tired of working out or relaxing in the spa, he can retreat to the media theater. All of this cost him about $17 million.
16. John Travolta
John loves to fly, which is evidenced by the runway on his Ocala, Florida estate. Two parking spaces sit in the front yard for his private jets. The house isn't too bad, either, with its floor-t-ceiling windows, swimming pool and gorgeous landscaping. All of this only set him back about $3 million!
Cher's Malibu home is as unique as she is, with its Italian Renaissance-style and beautiful Pacific ocean view. 13,126 square feet offer up luxury amenities such as an infinity pool and magnificent stone walls. Columns and ironwork complete the Old-World feel throughout the home.
14. Steven Spielberg
E.T. could definitely forget about going home if he moved in with out-of-this-world director Steven Spielberg at this palatial Pacific Palisades mansion. Sitting on 3.5 acres, it houses five bedrooms and six baths. It's estimated to be worth anywhere between $20 million and $35 million.
13. Conan O'Brien
With a need for space, Conan bought not only this property, but the adjoining one so he could stretch out. Property doesn't come cheap in Pacific Palisades, as demonstrated with Mr. O'Brien's property tipping the scales at more than $20 million. It's worth it, though, with its beautiful yard, pool and vaulted ceilings.
12. Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie
Not too many people can say they have a chateau with a moat, but this power couple calls Chateau Miraval in the south of France their home. They share the 35-room house with their six kids. At $60 million, this investment was just a drop in the bucket for the Pitt-Jolie clan.
Rihanna likes sparkle and this $7 million home in the Hollywood Hills is no exception. Nicknamed "The Fortress," it offers her relaxation and downtime in the beautiful pool and rooftop deck. The clean, feminine lines are befitting of this diva.
10. Arnold Schwarzenegger
Arnie is a big man, so it's only fitting that he live in a big mansion. With 14,500 square feet of living space, this home offers privacy and sanctuary with its wooded grounds and tennis court and pool. For only $23.5 million, he's been able to create his own retreat in Brentwood.
9. Ryan Seacrest
For a mere $49 million, Ryan bought this mansion from Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi. With three houses (one main house and two guest houses), this is quite the place for weekend guests! A 9,200 square foot main house and rooftop pool seem quite in line for this charismatic celebrity.
8. Will & Jada Pinkett Smith
Will and Jada don't come across as ostentatious people. Their home isn't either, despite its size and location in Malibu. The 25,000 square foot adobe-style abode was custom built on a 150-acre lot, with an array of luxuries including a golf course and incredible pool.
7. Ellen DeGeneres & Portia de Rossi
These two ladies may have very different personal styles, but their home is a perfect culmination of their desires in a home. Having purchased The Brody for a modest $40 million, they don't ever have to leave the luxury of their home, with a 2.3 acre lawn, gym, Olympic-sized pool and endless rooms at their disposal.
6. Selena Gomez
Although only ringing in at $3 million, this newest acquisition is a five bedroom home in the Hollywood Hills. It apparently fits Selena's needs to a "t". Her main request when looking for a perfect home? A vast separation from Justin Bieber, her ex.
5. Kim Kardashian & Kanye West
Not known for conservative style, this couple paid $21.5 million for their Bel Air mansion, customizing it to the level of glitz and glamour they're both accustomed to. A modest 9,000 square feet, it makes up for size in opulence. Five bedrooms, seven baths and an elevator are some of the features of this celebrity couple's home.
4. Jerry Seinfeld
This funny man making people laugh is his life's work, and with his $32 million home in East Hampton, his real estate agent was probably laughing all the way to the bank! This impressive mansion sits on 12 acres and boasts a tennis court, bowling alley, music room, fourteen fireplaces and a dedicated smoking room.
3. Tiger Woods
Tiger has never been known for being one to fly under the radar, and with this $60 million estate located in Jupiter Island, Florida, it would be nearly impossible to stay out of the line of sight. A four-hole golf course that would make any golfer envious, two pools, and a running track.
2. Tom Brady & Gisele Bundchen
What's $20 million when you're one of the most envied couples in the U.S.? This Los Angeles estate boasts luxuries such as 8 bedrooms, an elevator, a 6-car garage, indoor pool and spa, a weight room for those endless workouts and a wine cellar and nursery. All of this squeezed into a mere 22,000 square feet.
1. Taylor Swift
Taylor has style, and it's obvious when you take a look at her 11,000 square foot Watch Hill mansion located in Westerly, Rhode Island. With seven bedrooms and 9 bathrooms, there is enough room for at least part of the Taylor Swift Squad to party away the weekend. How much did this beauty set her back? Oh, only $17 million. In cash.
