When dealing with the high profile world of the rich and famous it is pretty easy to become jealous of their good looks, fame, and money. The thing is, after they are off our screens we don’t think about them anymore. And they don’t think about us. How could they when most rich celebrities live in unbelievable mansions? We pulled together 10 of the most incredible mansions of the rich and famous in order to give you a peak into what it’s like to live on the A-List.
Oprah, Oprah, Oprah. What is there to say about one of the true Queens of Hollywood? Oprah Winfrey rose to fame back in 1976 thanks to her work on the Baltimore based TV show, ‘People are Talking’. One thing led to another and soon Oprah was dominating the talk show circuit. With a net worth estimate of around $3 billion dollars she is one of the most wealthy women in the entire world. Her home reflects that fact, too. Located in Santa Barbara, California, Oprah’s house covers 23,000 square feet. On 42 acres of property, this elaborate mansion has six bedrooms, 14 different bathrooms, an entire home theater, and more fireplaces than we have fingers. She also have a stocked lake in her backyard that is surrounded by the most green area in all of Santa Barbara. Nicknamed the ‘Hearst Castle’, Oprah looks fit to live pretty comfortable going forward.
Katy Perry started her career as a faith based singer songwriter but she rose to fame with her subtly sexual pop super hits. Perry is now one of the biggest celebrities on the entire planet and she is worth an estimated $130 million dollars. Perry famously went through a big divorce with comedian Russel Brand a few years back, but she decided to keep the home that the two bought together. Located in Hollywood Hills, the house cost $6.5 million dollars. The main house is almost 9,000 square feet and is three stories. Being right next to Oprah on this list may make Perry look quaint, her house is anything but. The gorgeous estate has a giant patio and swimming pool with man made rock features adorning the backyard. There is an extra guest house on the property too for when parties go on a little too long at the Perry estate.
Before Kutcher became a full bred family man, getting engaged and having a baby with Mila Kunis, he was dominating the bachelor pad world. Kutcher owned a giant mansion in the Hollywood Hills of California. The mansion itself was sold by Kutcher for $9.9 million dollars and it was previously owned by Justin Bieber himself. The sleek and modern estate is almost 10,000 square feet in size and it has quite the amenities for the active man. The home has five bedrooms, a wine cellar, a gigantic gym, and a personal sauna all while being surrounded by the best views that Los Angeles has to offer. Not bad for a place that Kutcher probably spent such little time in. We don’t doubt that Kutcher is moving on to a bigger and better pad with soon to be wife Mila Kunis and their unborn child.
The Queen of Pop and all that is both good and bad in this world. Though Madonna’s music has changed over the years, her love of living the high life hasn’t. With a net worth of almost $800 million dollars, it was easy to see why Madonna would consider buying one of the nicest mansions in all fo London. Madonna bought the home of former photographer Cecil Beaton back in 2001. The estate is located in Wiltshire, England, and carries with it over 1,200 acres of land. This is the first time that the estate made it to the open market since the first World War. Hidden deep in a valley, Madonna had to learn how to fish, hunt, and ride horses in order to truly use the estate to its fullest function. If this gigantic home isn’t cool enough in and of itself, singer Sting and his wife are close by neighbors. Madonna is reportedly considering putting the house back on the market for almost 12 million pounds.
We mentioned that Ashton bought a home owned by Justin Bieber and surprisingly enough, so did Khloe Kardashin. One of the Queens of the Kardashin empire, Khloe purchased Bieber’s old ‘party mansion’ in Calabasas, California for $7 million dollars. This estate is located in a gated community called The Oaks and it is actually where Khloe was born and raised. The house itself has a personal chef’s kitchen, an added guest house, a gigantic private pool, and more bedrooms than we care to actually sit down and count. Khloe just sold her old home, which was co-owned with her ex man, Lamar Odom. The estate is also located a stones throw away from sister Kourtney’s home. If these are the type of places that Justin Bieber passes up on, we’d love to see where he actually lives.
Looking at George Clooney would lead you to believe that he is a suave man who understands good taste. And you’d be right. The silver haired A-Lister knows how to pick movie roles, and homes. Back in 2001 Clooney purchased a 25 room Italian villa. The villa is located right off of a lake in the small town of Laglio. The estate itself has a gigantic swimming pool, a huge motorcycle, and a view to die for. Down the street you can find the famous designer Donatella Versace. The place is as refined as Clooney’s acting career and absolutely gorgeous. Clooney calls it a “peaceful place to go and write”. That’s the kind of thing you say about nice gardens, not gorgeous multi million dollar estates. Such is life for George.
Jerry Seinfeld worked long and hard to make his big mark on the entertainment world, and it seems like the ‘Seinfeld’ TV series will last forever as a beloved franchise. On his way through those 15 years of acting, Seinfeld came to sum up a net worth of almost $800 million dollars. The Queens native is now living comfortably, taking projects only when they suit him. When he isn’t working he is at his gorgeous estate in East Hampton, New York. Seinfeld paid $32 million for the place back in 2000. There are 14 acres of land attached to the gigantic mansion to go along with the 24 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms. There is a gym, an indoor and outdoor pool, a tennis court and even a bowling alley. Taxes alone on the estate are north of $200,000 a year. What’s the deal with all those rooms, Jerry?
Jennifer Lawrence is reaping the rewards of a well deserved young career. The young Oscar winning actress made her first big purchase on a mansion in Beverly Hills for a startling $7 million dollars. Lawrence isn’t the first blonde super celeb to take up residence on the home as it has previously been owned by Jessica Simpson and Ellen DeGeneres. The home itself is 5,550 square feet in size and it hosts an array of amenities that normal people could only dream of. There are 5 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, a gourmet kitchen, and a gorgeous swimming pool that is walled in by floor to sky green trees.
Brad Pitt may be one of the most storied working A-Listers in Hollywood right now. Everything the man touches turns to gold and his relationship with Angelina Jolie is certainly paying dividends, as the man looks happier than ever. His home life isn’t doing too bad, either. Pitt has a gorgeous home in the French Quarter of New Orleans that he bought along with Jolie. The home itself was built back in the 1930’s and it was damaged during Hurricane Katrina. A gorgeous spiral staircase, private parking, and an extra two story guest home highlight the property. Pitt is in the area not only to live comfortably, but to make sure that others do as well. Brad and family are a big part of a housing restoration project in the Ninth Ward of New Orleans.
We decided to pick a rather unconventional celebrity to close out our list. Famous first for his insane skills on a skateboard, and later for his successful series of video games, Tony Hawk is living the high life. Hawk owns a home in Carlsbad, California that is over 5.000 square feet. Attached to the house is a gigantic skate park that is almost 4,000 square feet in size. The house itself is located in a rather private area and it boasts unique skylights, a beautiful view, and it is located next to a bunch of his best friends who happen to own adjoining properties. When Tony isn’t out on tour he can normally be found working on his craft in his custom skate park.
