One of the perks of being a well-known celebrity in Hollywood is the money that comes with it.
The money that celebs allow them to live lavish lifestyles and own luxury homes, some of which are so extravagant that they don’t even seem real.
But these celebs have been kind enough to let us into their ridiculous homes and it was only right that we show them to you. If you’d like a look inside some of the most extravagant celebrity homes, keep reading.
Celine Dion’s Water Wonder
Iconic singer Celine Dion bought a 20, 000 square foot home on Jupiter Island, Florida.
It features 13 bedrooms and 14 bathrooms, but what truly stunned everyone is the exterior of the home because there was, what looked to be, an entire water park out there. It was so huge that it required 500, 000 gallons of water to fill. There were two pools, a lazy river, water cannons and slides and an entire treehouse too!
Unfortunately, the star sold her mansion in 2017 for $28 million.
Jennifer Lopez’s Bel Air Beauty
In 2016, Jennifer Lopez purchased a 14, 000 sq. ft mansion in Bel-Air, California for $28 million.
It has seven extravagant bedrooms and a whopping 13 bathrooms- nearly two per bedroom. Other features include: ten fireplaces, a 30-seat screening room, a 100-seat amphitheatre, an entire pub, a man-made swimming pond, a vineyard and two guesthouses.
Oh, and let’s not forget the mini-golf course as well.
Fun fact: This is not the home where the singer’s stalker spent six nights undetected. That was at her second humble home, in the Hamptons!
Jay Z and Beyonce’s Crazy Compound
Calling Jay Z and Beyonce’s Bel-Air home a compound is by no means an exaggeration. The main house alone is reported to be 30, 000 sq. ft.
For its $88 million price tag, the two also got the two acres that surrounded the house. The power couple’s house has high ceilings, 40-feet tall to be precise, a spa and fitness center, a 15-car garage, four swimming pools and a helipad.
The couple’s compound also has eight bedrooms and 11 bathrooms and an entire building dedicated to entertaining. The upkeeping must be insane!
Since safety always comes first, the duo had their windows bulletproofed and it is safe to say that the Knowles family can call their home their safe-zone!
Ellen DeGeneres’ Vision Of A Villa
When Ellen DeGeneres bought her 17-acre, 10, 000 sq. ft Santa Barbara home which she named “The Villa,” she got it for $26.5 million.
“The Villa” has six bedrooms and a bathroom for each room and the house is decorated by unique features. One of its most precious elements, it’s its 18-century Italian tile, exposed beams, pizza oven and library.
Sadly, Ellen put this home, which was built in the 1930s, on the market for $45 million.
Gwen Stefani’s Architectural Art Piece
Gwen Stefani owns a 12, 000 sq. ft architectural wonder near the Hollywood Hills. It was previously owned by Jennifer Lopez, but now the singer is selling it for $35 million.
The six-bedroom home, known as “The Summit,” has two master bathrooms and five fireplaces made of a combination of marble and granite, all designed in a black and white color scheme.
On the outside, there’s a full-scale tennis court, a swimming pool with a jacuzzi tub and enough field space to host a thousand people comfortably.
It is, undeniably, a truly beautiful home.
Bill Gates’ Medina Marvel
For many years, Bill Gates was the richest man in the world. It stands to reason that he’d have a house that matches his crazy paycheck and that he does.
The house is rumored to be over 66, 000 sq. ft and has seven bedrooms and 24 bathrooms. Word on the street is that there are more than five kitchens, men and women’s lockers, a trampoline room and a library that’s over 2,000 sq. ft.
Besides all these rooms, the home has been outfitted with some of the most technologically advanced design features known to man. T
They include pressure-sensitive floors, microchips that can track a guest’s location, a pool with an underwater sound system and rotating artwork.
Mel Gibson’s Costa Rican Getaway
Mel Gibson is an established actor whose career has allowed him many luxuries and one of them is a 500-acre property in Costa Rica.
Known as Playa Barrington, the lot includes three houses surrounded by a lush jungle. The main house, which has seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms, was built using coral and has inlays of Spanish and Italian tile.
As for the other two houses, they’re able to function as their own stand-alone residences and each has a private pool.
And, of course, there’s the two-mile stretch of beach right in front of the mansion.
Oprah’s Amazing Abode
Oprah Winfrey may just be the Queen of Television, but she’s also the queen of the Promise Land, the name her 42-acre home goes by.
The estate has a main house that has six bedrooms and 14 bathrooms and was outfitted with little special features here and there to make the actress, producer and network owner more comfortable.
Inside, there’s a theater and a wine cellar, while the outside has a man-made lake that you can fish out of. There’s also a separate guest house, rose gardens and an equestrian facility with everything you can dream of.
Oprah even added a teahouse somewhere on the grounds of this $88 million property.
Lori Loughlin Lovely Lodging
You may remember Lori Loughlin as Aunt Becky in the Full House and Fuller House TV series.
Well, she’s also the owner of this home which is valued at $35 million. It’s located in Los Angeles and overlooks the Bel-Air Country Club.
The Mediterranean-style home has six bedrooms and a whopping of nine bathrooms. With its floor to ceiling glass doors, expansive archways, woven-patterned tile floors and a relaxing spa, this house is everything Lori and her designer husband had ever dreamed of.
But this also happens to be the home that the couple used as collateral for their $1-million-dollar (each) bond- they were two of the approximately thirty people involved in the college admissions scandal.
Will and Jada’s Malibu Mansion
Will and Jada are one of Hollywood’s most successful acting couples and their wealth shows in their 25, 000 sq. ft mansion, which just happens to sit on 150 acres of land. The home is located in Malibu and is said to be relatively close to Kim and Kanye’s house.
The couple, Will and Jada, have put in a bunch of special features into this nine-bedroom beauty of theirs.
They include a meditation room, a recording studio, a lake that’s actually a swimming pool, a pasture and secret nooks that are hidden throughout the property.
There’s even a basketball and a tennis court for the guests who love playing sports.
Sting’s City Stunner
In comparison to most of the other houses on this list, Sting paid a hefty chunk of change for a home that was just over 5, 000 sq. ft. The reason this home went for $50 million is that it’s a penthouse apartment that’s right in front of NYC’s iconic Central Park.
But this “tiny” celebrity home has it all, including a sauna, spa bathrooms, a fitness center, a theatre room and a steam room.
There’s also a pool and double spiral staircases, but the piece de resistance is its private restaurant.
However, it wasn’t long ago that the musical legend has sold his home.
Tom Cruise’s Incredible Cabin
When one thinks about a cabin, a 10,000 sq. ft home doesn’t ever come to one’s mind. But that’s exactly what Tom Cruise owns – and it’s a beautiful home whose ceilings and walls are covered in cedar. There’s a library, a recreational room and a gym on the inside, a basketball and a tennis court, a motocross racetrack and a hockey rink on the outside.
Oh, and there’s also a guest house which has three bedrooms and three bathrooms, which is only a short distance from the main house. All these features, along with the home’s sweeping views of the mountains, give it a price tag of $59 million.
George Lucas’ Ridiculous Ranch
The crazy thing about George Lucas’ nearly 5,000-acre ranch is that there are no pictures of the inside. Rumour has it that the Star Wars creator bought the home in 1974 and has since spent over $100 million making it to his liking.
Those who have been invited there are banned from taking pictures, but they are allowed to speak about what they’ve seen. And that includes underground parking with space for 200 vehicles, a theatre with space for 300, vineyards, gardens, outdoor pools and a two-story library.
But don’t feel bad that almost no pictures are available.
Rumor has it that President Reagan asked to see the home while he was in office and Lucas denied him!
Tiger Woods’ Tropical Wonderland
Tiger is yet another celebrity who chose to build a home on Jupiter Island. It cost him and his ex-wife, Elin, nearly $55 million to get this property just perfect for them.
Although the two have split for a while now, Tiger kept the beautiful home and based on the pictures, we can definitely understand why. The home is 10, 000 sq. ft, but it’s not the inside that has people talking.
The house has the ocean at its back and two beautiful state of the art pools to the front- one for diving and one for laps. There are courts and fields for almost every sport (golf, basketball, tennis, running, etc.), as well as a spa and boathouse for relaxing.
On the inside, there are wine cellars, a games room and a theatre.
Its stunning white exterior is something anyone would fight for in court.
