Visiting The Famous Homes Of Our Favorite Celebrities
There are a bunch of stars out there appearing every day in our television sets playing our favorite characters in our most-loved shows. Amusingly, some of us spend more time trying to dig up personal details of our favorite stars.
Good thing we are here to gratify at least some of your curiosity by providing you with an in-depth look at their luxurious abodes. Some of them will certainly surprise you–it is simply staggering to consider the size of the investment they put into building their homes. So without further ado, let’s dive in and visit the homes of our beloved celebrities.
Oprah Winfrey | Montecito, California, 100 Million
Oprah Gail Winfrey is an American talk show host, TV show producer, actress, writer and philanthropist. The media mogul Oprah Winfrey is one of the finest self-made women in the industry and she single-handedly lifted her family from the poverty line, making billions of dollars throughout her career. Money issues and bankruptcy will never be an issue for this lady right here and she proves this with her extravagant yet humble home in Montecito, California, which was dubbed “The Promised Land.”
It covers 42 acres of land with a straight upshot of the ocean and mountains. She bought it for $50 million in 2001 and it has a current value of around $100 million. Her house in The Maui estate now spans a colossal 163 acres and in 2010 she was granted permission to run a bed and breakfast on the site. Oprah has made use of the fertile ground and amazing climate and now grows fruit, vegetables and flowers on the site.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z | Bel-Air, Los Angeles, California, 88 Million
Since then, Jay-Z and Beyoncé rarely share clips on social media and music videos. In the 12 years of marriage, the couple welcomed three children together: the eldest daughter Blue Ivy (now looks more and more like Beyonce) and the two-year-old twin’s Sir and Rumi. The talented duo has won impressive awards at the top of the music charts and on the roster of successful companies. With a large amount of cash in their wallets, it is not surprising that they also picked up some incredible real estate along the way. Let us look back at their rise and ascend to the spectacular place called home.
This power couple is a key figure in the current entertainment scene. Individually, each can already be considered top-brass personalities, but after they exchanged vows, their financial stock went up a couple of notches. Choosing real estate investments is just like buying a cake for these two. They have a couple of houses around the country including one in New York and one in Los Angeles, but let’s focus on their property in the lovely neighborhood of Bel-Air. It sits on a 1.88 acre of land and was originally bought for $88 million back in 2017.
Scarlett Johansson | Los Angeles, $3.8 Million
actress in 2018 and 2019, and has been included in the Forbes Top 100 Celebrity list many times. Her film earned more than 14.3 billion U.S. dollars in the global box office, making Johnson the ninth highest box office revenue ever. The A-list actress, Scarlett Johansson, is always considered a top player in Hollywood and she constantly gets short-listed in ‘highest-paid actress’ lists.
With that in mind, we can imagine that she doesn’t face issues with her mortgages. With the money she has in her account, the Marvel MCU star opted for a Los Feliz mansion that cost her around $3.8 million back in 2014. It was a cozy home for her and most people wouldn’t believe that the mansion was built during the WWII era – yes that’s right, the estate was constructed during the ‘40s and that’s a classic!
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis | Beverly Hills, $10 Million
Like many Hollywood couples, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are very personal in their relationship. She does not have Instagram, they have never shared photos of their children, and most of the details about the relationship are hidden. However, we do know their history, including their screen romance and five-year marriage. Ashton Kutcher and his spouse, Mila Kunis, are one of the most famous celebrity power couples in Hollywood today and they spent their time during quarantine together in a beautiful pad right in the heart of Beverly Hills–the pad, in case you’re interested to know, cost them around $10 million.
A few years ago, right before the two jumped into their new crib, reports suggested that Kutcher sold his cherished Hollywood Hills real estate investment for $12 million. However, there’s little to no confirmation if the deal went through. Recently, they broke their silence about their new home after they reportedly placed the property on the market for an asking price of $13.99 million.
Heidi Klum | Los Angeles, $24 Million
Heidi Klum is an German-American model, TV presenter, producer and businessman. She appeared on the cover of the 1998 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue and was the first German model to become Victoria’s Secret Angel. Heidi Klum has nominated for six Emmy Awards. Heidi Klum has a net worth of $160 million. Now Klum has become more of a businesswoman than a model.
As a supermodel, people expect you to have the most glamorous things credit cards can afford, and that is exactly what Heidi Klum did. Speaking of glamorous, her Los Angeles estate has cool amenities like a golf course right in her own backyard. Aside from that, Klum also has the whole spa to herself. All of these came with a hefty price and unfortunately, she parted ways with her Los Angeles estate for a whopping $24 million. Well, with that kind of price tag, we can say she made an excellent move that gave her millions of dollars in return.
Britney Spears | Thousand Oaks, California, $9 Million
Britney Spears is one of the most famous women in the world. Over the years, she has earned amazing income from album sales, touring performances and endorsement deals. Britney’s net worth as of 2020 is $60 million. Although this is a staggering amount, it is reported that she has accumulated more than $200 million in net assets in her career. However, because she had to spend millions of pounds on lawyer fees, treatment centers and legal disputes, this number has dropped rapidly in recent years.
The Princess of Pop, Britney Spears, achieved huge success during the ‘90s and 2000s thanks to her impact in the overall music scene. She became one of the most sought-after artists after the release of her albums that did well on the music charts. With all the money she’s accumulated, we’re sure she won’t have any trouble paying off her mortgages. In fact, she bought and sold a couple of properties throughout the years, but the most memorable one would be her Thousand Oaks estate, which she eventually sold for $9 million.
Justin Bieber | Beverly Hills, $8.5 Million

As of 2020, Justin Bieber’s net worth is approximately $285 million, and everyone knows him. He was successful when he was very young. In fact, he is only 26 years old now! You either love him or love his music and that’s what Justin Bieber can bring to the table.
He had plenty of ups and downs throughout his career, but from a financial standpoint, he won’t be needing a bankruptcy lawyer anytime soon. On the bright side, instead of burning cash down with rentals, he and his spouse Hailey Baldwin decided to purchase a new crib in Beverly Hills for around $8.5 million. It has five bedrooms, which are more than enough for the two of them, with plenty of room to spare if they decide to expand.
Cher | Malibu $45 Million

After retiring, Cameron married Benji Madden, a member of the Charlotte band, in 2015, and the two remained relatively private in their personal lives. The actress Cameron Diaz has been out of the spotlight for quite a while but that doesn’t take away the fact that she’s enjoying a happy and financially stable life.
Good thing she already made a couple of well-executed investment moves and one of them was the purchase of a Manhattan apartment that she put up for sale for $4.25 million. This rare gem in the heart of the busy street of New York features 1,400 square feet of living space with more than a few rooms to go along with it. The best part, she got the property for $2.95 million a couple of years ago.

Yes, he’s the famous actor that appeared in many blockbuster hits over the years, and blockbuster films became a constant in his career. Brad Pitt also managed to create a good amount of fortune throughout his career, and this gave him access to a breathtaking property located in the heart of Los Feliz.

She was able to rake in millions of dollars. She’s considered one of the best-selling artists in modern time and money will never be an issue for her in any way, shape, or form. With that said, she can easily afford to take out a mortgage without having to worry about her overall net worth, just like she did with her Barbados estate. $22 million may sound a lot for most people but that wouldn’t leave a dent in her net worth. Rihanna spent that amount on her beach house, which is a perfect place to call home.
Barbara Walters | New York City, $10.35 Million
Barbara Jill Walters is a retired American broadcast journalist, writer and television personality.

The 90-year-old legend continues to live in his New York home. There’s no concrete news about it but reports had surfaced that her New York City apartment is currently on the market for $10.35 million. That may sound like a lot of money but many financial advisors agree that it is a great deal for a property in this area.
Gwyneth Paltrow |The Hamptons, $5.6 Million
Gwyneth Kate Paltrow is an American actress, businesswoman and writer. Her work has received many accolades, including Oscars, Golden Globes and Primetime Emmys.

Award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow went through a real bumpy ride while processing her divorce papers together with her attorney after her marriage with the Coldplay frontman Chris Martin ended. Good thing the process went more smoothly than expected. And as part of the settlement, she managed to acquire their Hampton estate, which has an estimated value of $5.6 million.
That’s quite a deal if you ask us. Her posts on social media show the property to be spectacular. It is a real stunner if you ask us, and she really made the most out of her divorce.
Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban | Tennessee, $2.48 Million
Nicole Mary Kidman is an Australian actress, singer and producer. She won an Academy Award, two Primetime Emmy Awards and five Golden Globe Awards. In 2006, 2018 and 2019, she was named one of the highest-paid actresses in the world. Award-winning actress Nicole Kidman and music icon Keith Urban are considered one of the most successful pairs in Hollywood, in both financial and professional terms. We’re sure their financial advisor is so happy for these two.
They have numerous properties around the globe – a couple of estates in Australia, another one in L.A., and a condominium in Big Apple that they got for a $10 million deal. However, probably the most talk about would be their home near Nashville, Tennessee that cost them around $2.48 million. The original asking price of the seller was around over $3.45 million but they were able to get $1 million off from the original price.
Sean Hannity | Long Island, New York

James is widely regarded as one of the greatest NBA players in history, and he is often compared to Michael Jordan in the debate about the greatest basketball player of all time. James’ career income exceeds 1 billion US dollars. With a deal with Nike alone, James can earn more than $1 billion in his lifetime, but he also has his own NBA salary, other endorsements and a new career in Hollywood.
There are a bunch of arguments stating that King James of the Los Angeles Lakers is considered the best basketball player that ever played the game. However, there are others that believe it is actually MJ, Kobe, or Kareem. We actually don’t need lawyers to prove our point but the only thing that is apparent is that he’s one of the greatest players in the league’s history. Just like a true king, his Los Angeles mansion fits the standard of royalty, and we’re sure you’ll agree since it has a price tag of around $23 million.
Kaley Cuoco | $2.95 MILLION, CALIFORNIA

After acting as a supporting role in a series of film and TV roles in the late 1990s, she achieved a breakthrough role in the ABC sitcom 8 “Simple Rules”, namely Bridget Hennessy.

The 34-year-old actress has more than 20 years of acting experience and is worth about $55 million.
The Big Bang Theory actress Kaley Cuoco made headlines when she bought the former house of Khloé Kardashian for $5.5 million. The estate sits on a gorgeous spot with a touch of modern Mediterranean-style. However, she recently decided to put the property up for sale for $6.9 million. After going back and forth, she decided to cut the price down just to be able to sell the investment property. The reason behind her decision had something to do with her new property around the area that cost her around $12 million, which she shared with Karl Cook.

He is famous for playing Wolverine in the “X-Men” movie series, and he won the Guinness World Record for this, which is “the longest career of a live-action Marvel superhero”.

The award-winning actor Hugh Jackman consistently provided good and quality movies all throughout his career and we will never get bored from watching him. We can see why many people spent their credit cards and even their gift cards just to get a hold of his movies. With that said, he undoubtedly made a huge fortune in the entertainment scene and used a portion of his money to acquire a 3-story mansion located in Big Apple for a whopping $21 million.

In April 2007, Newsweek called him “the most powerful actor in Hollywood.” Although Will Smith does have a lot of money, he is not a billionaire. Will’s net worth is estimated to be approximately $350 million, which makes him one of the richest actors in the world. The Prince of Bel-Air now has a new title and we should now call him the King of Calabasas.
If you’ve been following Will Smith’s career, he rose to fame because of the hit sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and since then, he became an icon in the industry, appearing in many blockbuster hits. So if you want to see him in action, we suggest grabbing your credit card and ordering a couple of movies-on-demand that feature Will Smith. After his marriage to Jada, Smith went on a mission and fully renovated his Calabasas estate up until it became a unique sight.

The Beverly Hills villa that he owns has a Mediterranean feel to it. He also has another mansion listed for sale around the same area and this one has a couple of weird things about it. You’ll just have to see it for yourself.

Just like most characters he portrays, the actor Denzel Washington’s private life is shrouded with mystery.
That’s what you get if privacy is your top priority, and he did that with the help of his home security system. Speaking of homes, he has a couple of properties that he calls home and one of them is his Beverly Hills mansion. Reports suggest that he got this 2.13-acre property from the former CEO of the Walt Disney Company back in 1992.

They say the procedures lack the backing of mainstream science, so people should be questioning their effectiveness.

From the look of things, it is still in pristine condition and it didn’t need any fixing at the moment.
Stephen Colbert | South Carolina, Undisclosed Amount

Interestingly enough, he grew up in a very old house, which was built long before he was born. In fact, the construction of the house was finished in 1810. We can clearly imagine how many home renovation loans the house went through all these years. Too bad there’s not that much information about the property except for what comes out of the many tours happening in the area–the century-old house, after all, remains to be a famous pitstop.

The American actress and producer, Melanie Griffith, has quite the exquisite taste when it comes to real estate investments, and this gorgeous log cabin in Aspen is evidence of the fact. Griffith’s breathtaking log cabin mansion sits within the luscious greens of the mountainous Aspen, Colorado. Everyone will agree that this is a dream vacation spot! However, she decided to part ways with this beautiful estate for a hefty $4 million price tag. It was actually a good deal for the new owner since Griffith put the property on the market for $4.3 million, which means she slashed $300 thousand from the asking price!

He also hosted a couple of news programs for the station, which eventually catapulted him to the top of the leader rankings.

The 2,341 square feet, 2-bedroom condominium unit features a classic and elegant design. It’s not hard to see why Smith chose to buy this property.

Don Lemon | Sag Harbor, $3.1 Million

Murrow Award and three regional Emmy Awards. In 2016, the television personality and journalist Don Lemon joined a bunch of big-shot names in a Hamptons rich and famous neighborhood.
Unlike most of the personalities who spent a huge chunk of their mortgage to get their hands on a property in the area, however, Lemon took his time to find the perfect deal that brought more bang for the buck. Well, now he’s calling this Sag Harbor property his home. Lemon purchased it for $3.1 million and it features five spacious bedrooms, which is more than enough to accommodate his family. He described his first meeting with the property as love as first sight.
Rush Limbaugh | Palm Beach, $65 Million

If there’s one thing certain about the situation it’s that the gorgeous scenery of the property is among its highlights.

In around 2012, he and his spouse, Luciana Bozán Barroso, bought a stunning estate in the area for around $15 million. After spending time with their new real estate investment, the couple decided to put the property up for sale, asking for around $20 million from anyone interested. The home is, after all, a 9,000 square feet mansion. In our opinion, $20 million for a home like this is a great deal so if you have that kind of money to spend, contact Damon.
Paul McCartney | London, Unassessed Amount
Paul McCartney is a British singer, songwriter, musician, record and film producer. He is known worldwide as the lead singer and bassist of the Beatles. Paul McCartney is part of the legendary music band The Beatles, which is one of the most iconic bands in history.

In today’s Hollywood era, only a few people haven’t seen a Jennifer Lawrence film, on account of how ubiquitous the actress is. But some of us have used credit cards to order movies-on-demand just to watch her.
Over the course of her career, Lawrence’s films have grossed over $6 billion, making her one of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood. On top of that, her name is always in the conversation when it comes to awards considerations. That’s probably the reason why money wasn’t an issue when she purchased her lovely residence for $8.225 million in the Beverly Hills area. She also found good neighbors in the form of other Hollywood superstars.
Jessica Alba |Beverly Hills, $6.2 Million
Jessica Marie Alba is an American actress and businesswoman. At the age of 19, she became famous as a star in the TV series “Dark Angel” (2000-2002) and was nominated for a Golden Globe Award. Many magazines rank her as the most beautiful woman in the world. It’s pretty much known to everyone that Beverly Hills is a top celebrity hotspot, and the place remains to be an investment magnet among celebrities until today.
The same can be said for the beautiful actress Jessica Alba. The actress purchased her Beverly Hills residence almost a decade ago for her growing family. However, things might have proven to be a little too cramped because they opted to list the property for sale for around $6.2 million last year. She made a couple of lovely renovations to the property, which spiced up its personality.

This oceanfront mansion has nine bedrooms and thirteen baths. The breathtaking view of the ocean from the mansion’s floor-to-ceiling windows is also priceless. Semel wanted to sell this estate for $50 million, but reports said that Oracle’s CEO Larry Ellison was able to get the property for around $37 million. Whatever the case may be, the fact of the matter is that the deal became the biggest real estate deal in Malibu that year.
Julia Roberts | Malibu, $10 Million
Pretty Woman star Julia Roberts is considered one of the top leading ladies in the business, thanks to her award-winning performances in many romantic-comedy flicks that dominated Hollywood in the past.

In the past, she was often seen in her Point Dume estate in Malibu, which became her haven. However, news broke out that Roberts and her spouse sold the property for $8 million and the new owner is said to be their billionaire next-door neighbor, who added the property to his investment portfolio. Currently, she lives in her other property in Malibu, together with her husband and family.
Jeff Bezos |Beverly Hills, $165 Million
It would be hard to imagine that Jeff Bezos started his business empire out of a garage. Now, people would have no excuse to become successful so long as they have a set goal. The wealthy entrepreneur is said to be the first person in history to have a wealth exceeding $200 billion. To give you perspective, his net worth is equal to the combined GDPs of both Ethiopia and Kuwait.
Amazon is one of the biggest tech companies in the world, and this multi-billion dollar venture is still being handled by its founder, the one and only, Jeff Bezos. Bezos made an extraordinary move and paid a whopping $165 million for a Beverly Hills estate that would go down as one of the priciest home purchases in California’s history. DreamWorks co-founder David Geffen formerly owned the property. We can just imagine the amount of property insurance for this estate!
Drake| Hidden Hills, $7.7 Million
Drake is considered to be one of the top artists in the rap and RnB game. He had always been interested in music even as a young child. His success started when he released a mixtape, Room for Improvement right after he left the TV series Degrassi: The Next Generation. His style centered mostly on hip-hop and R&B, but the rapper also delved into rap and pop in recent years.
He can easily afford any luxurious things he can think of, and a gorgeous, inviting mansion is always on the top of anyone’s list. That’s probably the reason why Drake is so fond of making real estate investments. Indeed, he’s invested in a couple of properties located in Hidden Hills. Out of his many properties in the area, however, the most unique is this $7.7 million home that features caves around a huge swimming pool! That’s not something you see every day.

Grace has also authored a work of fiction, The Eleventh Victim, which is a crime-legal story. She also helped establish a hotline for battered women in Atlanta.
In 2014, she shocked the Atlanta neighborhood after she listed her stunning yet simple home here up for sale. This all happened, of course, after she built herself a new home. She purchased the property in 1996 for $407,500 and renovated a huge chunk of the house along the way. The new owner would be proud of the house interior’s classic design.
Lynda Carter | Maryland, Undisclosed Amount
The ‘70s and ‘80s have been good decades for the actress, model, and Miss World USA, 1972 titleholder, Lynda Carter. She dominated the entertainment scene back in those days and even played the role of Wonder Woman during the ‘70s, becoming a pop-cultural icon in the process. In her honor, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce (HCC) awarded her with a star on the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame back in 2018.
Her financial advisor also had her hands full around that time with Carter doing back-to-back projects and making a couple of crucial financial moves. One of these moves was her acquisition of a 20,000-square-foot Maryland mansion. It has been her longtime home since then, and she seems really fond of the property. Who wouldn’t? Given the property’s exclusive feel, she could just get lost in it and bask in the privacy it offers. Both she and her husband Robert Altman expressed how they love their home so much.
Kiefer Sutherland | Whitefish, Montana, $10.5 Million
Kiefer Sutherland is a British-born Canadian director, singer, and actor. He first portrayed a leading role in the drama The Bay Boy in 1984. Sutherland, however, is best remembered for his role in Flatliners, where he met the love of his life, Julia Roberts. This may go down as one of the saddest love stories in Hollywood, probably ranking second to the tragic tale of Romeo and Juliet.
Yes, we are talking about Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, and the Golden Bear Ranch located in the heart of Whitefish, Montana. Sutherland made a considerable investment in the area by building what would have been their dream house. However, news broke out that the wedding the couple had been planning for years was canceled, for reasons that are still unknown. A couple of years later, the property was listed on the market for $12 million, and it has gone through a number of price cuts over time
Billy Joel | Miami Beach, $14 Million
The Piano Man, Billy Joel, has been providing us with quality tunes and lovely music for many decades now, especially during the ‘70s and ‘80s. With that said, he managed to save up a lot of money in the course of his career. This was a long way from when he was born in the Bronx, New York. He is not only a musician but also an entrepreneur as he formed the Long Island Boat Company along with his friend Peter Needham.
The property that he purchased was an 8,881-square-foot mansion located in Miami Beach. Luckily, he managed to find a buyer for the property when he listed it on the market for $14 million. Well, that amount wouldn’t hurt the pocket of the new owner since he’s a billionaire – to be exact; he’s the CEO of the Italian leather company Tod’s. He would need to make sure that the house and its perimeters are equipped with the latest home security systems to ensure their privacy.
Miley Cyrus | Malibu, $1.7 Million
Miley Cyrus is someone noted for her distinctive raspy voice. That unique voice and her singing style have made her songs top the US Billboard 200. Before attaining success in singing, however, she first starred in the show Hannah Montana as a teen. The Woolsey Fire that ravaged Malibu and its surrounding area took a toll on the residents that live in-and-around the vicinity and one of its victims was the singer-songwriter.
We hope that she has home insurance coverage for her property. Cyrus still decided to sell her Malibu home, however, for an $800,000 loss after accepting an offer of only $1.7 million. The deal went down a few days before her divorce from her former hubby Liam Hemsworth. Although she was on the losing side, we bet that this loss won’t hurt her and her overall net worth since she can quickly recoup that loss with a few concerts.
Rob Lowe | Montecito, Santa Barbara $42.5 Million
The award-winning actor, director, and producer, Rob Lowe, is one of Hollywood’s brightest stars and his bank account can attest to that. He has all the money that he needs in the world to be happy, and he can quickly swipe his credit card to his heart’s content. All this wealth came after his success as an established Hollywood star. The actor was a prominent figure in the 1980s as he appeared in films like Oxford Blues, The Outsiders, and St. Elmo’s Fire.
Lowe made sure that he spends his money wisely and purchased real estate instead of just splurging. Recently, he listed his Montecito estate for $42.5 million. It is a couple of millions less than his original asking price back in the day, but it is still a good deal for him and the possible new owner of the estate. The new owners would also enjoy the privilege of owning a celebrity’s house.
Alex Trebek | Paso Robles, $1.39 Million
George Alexander Trebek was a game show personality well-known for his presence in the TV show Jeopardy. Throughout its 37-season run, Trebek never failed to entertain both the viewers and the show’s contestants. Unfortunately, he passed away in late 2020, but one thing’s for sure and it’s that this celebrity will undoubtedly be remembered by his fans, friends, and family.
The lovely and tranquil lake house that Trebek bought back in the day could be yours for $1.39 million. The longtime Jeopardy host listed this real estate investment for sale, which comes with a few recreational vehicles such as a jet ski and ATVs. It sits in a nice and quiet place located in the rural part of Paso Robles.

Katy Perry | Los Angeles, $9.4 Million

Today, Perry is a singer and songwriter and is considered one of the top music talents currently gracing the airwaves. Thanks to her bold and unique tunes, it took her no time at all before she rose to the international stage.
Her financial advisor also noticed a substantial upward trend when it came to her finances over the years. In turn, that opened a window of opportunity for the world-famous singer to acquire a Mediterranean-style Los Angeles estate. A couple of years later, she added the adjacent lot to her portfolio. However, she soon made a deal for $9.4 million. We are not certain if that deal involved the two properties, but our guess is that it was the bigger lot of the two.
Christie Brinkley | Long Island, New York, $17.99 Million

In fact, she was seen on more than 500 occasions right at the very front of magazines during her prime, a huge feat even to this date. Of course, supermodels only live for perfection. With that in mind, we can see why she opted to make a massive investment in this waterfront property located in New York.
Brinkley bought this property for $7.15 million back in 2004 and listed the property for sale in 2010 for $15.75 million. She removed it from the listing about a year later and brought it back again for $25 million. She then cut a couple of millions off the price until a deal came in May last year. Built back in 1843, this 5,500-square-foot abode provides its residents with five bedrooms, a mudroom, several fireplaces, and a fancy in-ground gunite swimming pool in the outdoor area.
Kate Hudson | Pacific Palisades, $5.3 Million

After performing in a few stage plays, Hudson finally got her big-screen break when she starred in the film Almost Famous. Thanks to the high praise she received for her role, Kate won a Golden Globe award and an Oscar nomination.
With her net $80 million net worth, making investments in the real estate business is not a problem for the actress and budding fashion entrepreneur. That’s why she didn’t even flinch when she bought her childhood home for $5.5 million. Soon after, in 2011, she purchased the mansion next door for $5.3 million. By the looks of it, it’s safe to say that the actress managed to both go big and go home. Well, even if the two combined properties are indeed massive, at least Hudson and her kids have plenty of space to spend some fun family time in.

The fashion designer Kimora Lee Simmons faced many issues in the past. Fortunately, none of that got in the way of her pursuit to acquire a gem located in Beverly Park.

For the price, the house’s residents are provided six bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a library, a sizable kitchen installed with top-class appliances and equipment, and a screening room. Furthermore, it would be a disservice not to mention this lovely abode’s backyard.
Amidst the beautiful trees, the 3.79-acre property also features a swimming pool with an inset spa and a tennis court. She got a pretty good deal for the property, considering the original price tag of this exclusive mansion was around $33 million before it went down to $29 million. Eventually, Simmons and the former homeowner finally established a mutual agreement and sealed the deal for $25 million.
Mark Zuckerberg | Palo Alto, $7 Million
A media magnate and co-founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg revolutionized the use of social media in today’s world – safe to say he deserves some credit for achieving such a goal.

John Cena | Florida, $3.4 Million
John Cena is one of the most famous professional wrestlers in recent years. However, Cena’s influence isn’t only limited to WWE’s arenas. In the film industry, the wrestler has made quite a name for himself thanks to his role in projects like The Marine, 12 Rounds, Bumblebee, and the upcoming F9 movie. With his reputation, it comes as no surprise that Cena has since been earning a fortune through his career.
In fact, he didn’t even apply for a mortgage when he paid his Florida estate in full upon signing a contract with the WWE. The pro wrestler’s mansion used to have a value of $3.4 million. However, after a series of renovations he had done to the property, it’s safe to say that the house’s total worth skyrocketed even further. Today, this lovely abode also features both an outdoor and indoor pool as well as an annexed guest house.
Marshawn Lynch | The Bay Area, $3.6 Million
The former Seattle Seahawks running back helped his team win the Super Bowl XLVIII back in 2013 and the year before that. However, before he made a name for himself in the professional leagues, Marshall Lynch began his journey into sports at a young age. Since his mother was also quite an athlete, it was only a matter of time before he became one, too. Well, looking back at it now, with all the achievements he made in his career, it’s safe to say that his mom would be very proud of him.
Outside sports, Lynch is also quite a winner in the real estate investment game. Around 2012, he bought himself a mansion in Richmond, California’s Bay Area for $3.6 million. The 7,000-square-foot mansion has a couple of amenities that everyone would want, like a wine cellar, a state-of-the-art movie theater, and a boat deck. Furthermore, it also has floor-to-ceiling windows that show the beautiful bay area.
Von Miller | Cherry Hills, Denver, $8 Million
The Denver Broncos linebacker, Von Miller, signed a deal a couple of years ago, marking his place on the team. With that said, his financial advisors were also pleased to welcome the 6-year contract worth $114.5 million from the Broncos’ front office. Since he had a lot of money in hand, he decided to spend a good portion of it on a couple of things. Besides buying a few cars along the way, Miller also took a leap into the real estate business.
As a result, Miller got his hands on a beautiful Cherry Hills Village mansion, which cost him around $8 million. He also did a couple of customizations to the property. In total, the estimated cost of the estate is now around $10 million, more or less. Upon further inspection, the footballer’s humble abode has seven bedrooms, six bathrooms, and, of course, a walk-in closet for his massive shoe and sunglasses collection.
Charlize Theron | Hollywood Hills, $2.75 Million
Throughout her career, Charlize Theron spent a good amount of her fortune searching for the perfect real estate investment. Soon after, she stumbled across a very nice property in Hollywood Hills, which she called home for a couple of years. In 2007, her chance to get a great-quality estate came in the form of a 2,350-square-foot property that was on the market for $2.75 million.
This department-store-turned-condominium unit has one bedroom, two bathrooms, a stainless steel kitchen, and plenty of living space to relax in. However, after about a decade of calling the property her home, Theron decided to part ways with it but, in turn, lost a significant amount of money after selling it for just $1.75 million. Fortunately, the films she starred in after that transaction helped her recover that loss and more – the movies in question include Atomic Blonde, Fate of the Furious, and Mad Max: Fury Road.
Jessica Biel | New York, $28 Million
The 7th Heaven actress Jessica Biel and her spouse Justin Timberlake recently made a massive investment in a TriBeCa property that is in close proximity to the residence of Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, and other famous stars from Hollywood. The price they had to pay for the new pad? Well, they shelled out around $28 million for it. This 5,375-square-foot mansion in the sky is, without a doubt, nothing short of gorgeous.
Besides the usual bedroom and bathroom, the celebrity couple also has full access to the building’s other amenities, including a pool, children’s playroom, a fitness center, a Turkish spa, and a rooftop garden. Furthermore, the luxury penthouse is filled with gorgeously perfect window arches that bring in natural lighting to the property. It may have an over-the-top price tag for a penthouse, but considering it is in the famous TriBeCa area, it sure does sound like a fair deal.
Harry Styles | Hollywood Hills, $6 Million
One Direction superstar, Harry Styles, emerged as one of the top music personalities in recent times. He even appeared in a couple of films, including Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk in 2017. With his growing reputation, he must have thought that he needed a new pad to call home. Luckily, he found exactly what he was looking for in Hollywood Hills. In 2016, Styles purchased a new residence for $6.87 million.
Soon after, his investment-oriented mind kicked in when he decided to sell the property after spending two years in it. However, instead of gaining profit from it, he sold the 4,401-square-foot Hollywood Hills home for $6 million. Well, besides knowing that a big-named celebrity once lived here, the new resident will also have access to the house’s four bedrooms, five bathrooms, a movie theater, and a chef’s kitchen. Outside, the sanctuary has a swimming pool with a spa, a private backyard patio, and a gorgeous, unfiltered view of Los Angeles.
Gwen Stefani | Beverly Hills, $21.65 Million
At this point, it comes as no surprise that everyone likes a particular kind of music. However, out of the many songs we listen to, there will always be those that resonate with us on a deeper level. Well, that’s arguably also the case for now-famous singer and songwriter Gwen Stefani. When she was just a kid, her parents would often let her listen to folk songs with them. Today, although she dominates a different genre, it’s safe to say that those early records helped her appreciate the beauty of this art form called music.
This television personality and singing icon proved to some degree that she also understands how real estate businesses work. She recently made headlines after she sold her Beverly Hills mansion for $21.65 million. A couple of years ago, she bought the property with her then-husband, Gavin Rossdale, for $13.25 million–so, clearly, she profited a lot from the deal.
Alexander Skarsgård | New York, $2.3 Million
True Blood actor, Alexander Skarsgård, has recently been on the rise in Hollywood. With that said, it’s also probably the reason why he got himself a loft in New York for a cool $2.3 million in 2017. It used to belong to indie film actress Parker Posey. Since it is located on the fourth floor of East Village’s historic townhouse, the apartment’s interior design has a 19th-century vibe, thanks to its brick walls, wooden beams, plank floors, and wood-burning fireplaces – though the actor did manage to enhance the look with his own artistic touch.
From the looks of things, Skarsgård might have found the perfect investment for his money. On the other hand, he might just use this as a stepping stone, like when he purchased a modern residence in the Los Feliz area for $1.85 million in 2012, only to earn a profit when he sold it for $2.9 million.
John Travolta | Florida, $10.5 Million
If you think a house fitted with a good home security system and features five to six cars is big enough, then you haven’t heard what actor John Travolta’s home has to offer.

Located in an exclusive gated community called Jumbolair, the actor’s compound is complete with air control facilities, similar to what most airports have, plus it’s a homey pad where he can lay flat at night.
Furthermore, the 550-acre property is currently on the market for $10.5 million. Along with the purchase is, of course, the country’s largest private runway and the 38-lot Aviation Estates subdivision. By the looks of it, it’s safe to say that the lucky buyer of this area can undoubtedly live their childhood dream. After all, who wouldn’t want to have access to their very own private plane, just waiting for them in their backyard?
Michael Jordan | Chicago, $14.9 Million
Number 23 of the Chicago Bulls is considered the greatest player that ever walked on the hardwood floors of the NBA. That’s what Michael Jordan brought to the table when he was in his prime playing the game of basketball. By the end of his career, Michael Jordan undoubtedly left a long and lasting mark on the sport, a legacy that still inspires many of today’s players. That’s probably why he placed a huge number 23 right in the front gate of his 56,000-square-foot estate.
However, real estate investment might not be his strongest suit since this property of his has been listed for sale since 2012. We have seen a couple of price cuts to the property and the most recent would be $14.9 million – almost half of the original price he listed back in the days. Even so, any interested buyer may want to know that this extravagant mansion features a lovely swimming pool, a forest preserve, and of course, it’s very own basketball court.
Halle Berry | Malibu, $8 Million
Award-winning actress, Halle Berry, has been one of the brightest stars in Hollywood in the past couple of years. With that said, where do most stars live? Yes, you got that right: Malibu, the home of the rich and famous. It seems like Berry and her family are really fond of the Malibu neighborhood, and we can clearly see that on their faces. Although she still has another investment property in Beverly Hills, this place has close ties to her heart.
The reason is probably because of the area’s ocean views, which can be seen from Berry’s living room. Furthermore, this lovely beach house also features three bedrooms, four bathrooms, an elevator for easier access, and of course, plenty of living space designed to provide residents with the most relaxing experience they’ll ever get. For an $8 million price tag, it’s safe to say that Berry got more than what she paid for – and that’s definitely a good thing.

Furthermore, besides appearing in shows, Harvey is also a writer, having already released a few books in the past years.
We don’t know the reason why, but Harvey seems to be a pretty big fan of living in Atlanta. In fact, he even bought a couple of properties around the area. The first one would be a 9,258-square-foot luxury mansion, a property he acquired in 2010 for $3.4 million. For this price, he got a lovely abode that features six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a waterfall, and a mini-golf course. Besides that, the most recent addition to his real estate collection is Tyler Perry’s former home, which he got last summer for $15 million.
Diana Ross | Connecticut, $7.3 Million
The international music icon Diana Ross has been spotted for the last couple of years in her home in Greenwich, Connecticut.

The singer’s humble abode is surrounded by a luscious green scenery and sits comfortably in a five-acre plot.
Throughout her time as this property’s owner, Ross developed quite a liking to it. After all, who wouldn’t love to make investments in a sanctuary far away from the hustle and bustle of the urban jungle – plus, the view is beautiful. With that said, although Ross undoubtedly has no troubles with money matters, she still decided to list the property a couple of years ago. As of September 2020, after first removing the estate from the market, Diana Ross placed it back up for a price of $6.29 million.
Pat Sajak |Los Angeles, Estimated $425K
Everyone loves game shows. However, perhaps not everyone can top Pat Sajak’s passion for them. As it happens, he is also one of the top game show hosts in the business. With that in mind, it’s not surprising that he’s also the one leading the popular program Wheel of Fortune. Since then, Sajak has achieved a lot of success in doing the thing he does best, and of course, while he earned the respect of his peers.
On top of that, he has also built up a huge credit score, one that can undoubtedly put just about anyone on cloud nine. Most of us would think that a man of his stature would go down and live life in an extravagant mansion filled with all the luxuries in the world. However, we are surely wrong. At one point in his career, Sajak took residence in a simple home in Los Angeles that’s not even worth more than $1 million – as of 2014, the 2,600-square-foot house is on the market for $699,000.
O. J. Simpson | Las Vegas, $1.8 Million
The former football superstar athlete of the NFL, O. J. Simpson, used to have millions of dollars in his account, but an incident changed all that in one fell swoop. After serving his sentence, he’s been working hard to get his life back, one step at a time. In 2017, reports suggested that he’s living in his mansion just a couple of miles away from the famous The Strip in downtown Las Vegas.

However, in case he isn’t in the mood to take a dip, he can also practice his swing at a nearby golf course.

Well, whatever it may be, one can’t deny that residing in this cozy abode can undoubtedly be a reinvigorating experience for just about anyone.
Eddie Murphy| Hollywood Hills, $85 Million
Eddie Murphy seems to have a hobby of buying and collecting real estate investments and putting them into his portfolio. This Hollywood Hills property is one of them. In 2005, he started renovating the property and spent almost $20 million to accommodate all the amenities that he and his family loved. As a result, this humongous sanctuary became akin to a 5-star resort, thanks to its tropical aesthetic and swimming pool. Furthermore, in case the kids didn’t like to go for a little swim, they can also try scoring a few strikes in the mansion’s bowling alley.
Before the overhaul, Murphy got his hands on the property for only $10 million. However, after pouring in that truckload of money for the estate’s restoration and beautification, it became a massive multi-million dollar estate that even other celebrities can only dream of. However, he later listed it for sale in 2016 for $65 million, after slashing out a couple of millions from the original price of $85 million.
Tom Selleck | Los Angeles, Undisclosed Amount
For those who loved ‘80s television, you may have probably seen a couple of episodes – or you might even be one of the many fans – of the Magnum, PI series. Well, if that’s the case, then there’ll be no need for a lengthy introduction for the one and only Tom Selleck.

Besides its star-studded owner history, this 10-square-foot house has six bedrooms, nine bedrooms, a movie screening room, a beauty salon, and a gym. Soon after, Christina found herself a $13.5 million deal for the property and her instincts kicked in right away.

Furthermore, this sanctuary is not only home to an infinity-edge swimming pool, but also to a man-made swimming pond – and it also comes with its own sandy beach. The property was first listed for $39.995 million, though her camp managed to negotiate a price that worked for both parties. It is worth mentioning that it was not the first time she cashed in that amount of money for an estate – or anything in general, even. However, it pretty much won’t be the last time, either.
Adam Sandler | Los Angeles, $28 Million
Ever wondered where the famous actor and comedian Adam Sandler really lives? Well, that’s a difficult thing to answer since he has made a fair share of investments in real estate. He has a property in Malibu that he purchased in the early 2000s. There’s one in Boca Raton, Florida, and another located in New Hampshire. However, we are going to talk about his 12,860-square-foot home in Los Angeles, previously owned by Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn.
This lovely place that Sandler calls home features 7 bathrooms, 14 bedrooms, and plenty of living space – just look at that backyard! Furthermore, as if it wasn’t big enough already, Sandler the adjoining house. This small and newer member of the property is 3,971 square feet long and features four bedrooms and four bathrooms. With all things considered, if we combine the two houses, then they would be worth an estimated $28 million.

With the help of designer Peter Dunham, Driver was just one step closer to getting her dream home.
By the end, after all the necessary changes were made, this 1940s ranch house’s overall vibe finally resonated well with the actress. Looking at the results, it is nothing short of spectacular. It may not be the biggest and grandest property around the area, but it sure has a lot of bang for the buck. However, when all is said and done, what matters most is that Driver finally gets to stay in a place that checks off every requirement she has on her checklist.

We need to give her credit for that since she brought many eye-opening stories to the public, especially on the political side of things. However, we are here not for her thoughts; we are here for her gorgeous Upper East Side property. After discovering a 1,400-square-foot unit on the market for $1.8 million, Coulter spent no time dilly-dallying and immediately bought the property.
However, luck seemed to be in her favor since she didn’t need to pay for its full price – she got to purchase it for only $577,000.
