The 15 Most Expensive Celebrity Homes

The 15 Most Expensive Celebrity Homes
Written by Oana Schneider

Buckle up for the most expensive celebrity homes and their amazing facilities! We all want to have a nice house, a good job, and a loving family, but sometimes it looks like celebrities just go overboard with everything!  Just think about the fact that one celebrity spent $150 million on a house!

That’s enough money to feed a small country for a month, isn’t it? Of course, only the time will decide if these celebrities will invest wise or die poor. Take a look at the most expensive celebrity homes and tell us which one is your best!

1. Justin Bieber – $6.5 million

The lowest score on the most expensive celebrity homes list belongs to Justin Bieber. Apparently, the famous pop singer and heartthrob paid near 7 million dollars for his home in Calabasas, Los Angeles in 2012. The 10,000-square-foot property includes 1.3 acres of land and it has several bedrooms, a beautiful pool, and even a wine cellar (let’s not forget Justin was only 18 years old when he purchased this house).

The style reminds of old Spanish mansions, having brown tiled floors and beige walls. Although the movie theater is not as spectacular as you might think, it gets the job done if we are to listen to the Bieber. After looking at it, we can say that this is exactly what a bachelor cave looks like.

2. Jennifer Lopez – $10 million

Jennifer enters our most expensive celebrity list with a $10 million property. Located in Hamptons, this beautiful property was purchased by Jennifer Lopez and her then-boyfriend, Casper Smart.

It has 8 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and 8500 square foot custom home, which is not too shabby, if you may say so. The Latin singer looks like a perfect summer retreat for a family with kids (Jennifer has two children, twins Max and Emme).

The diva also built a tennis court and a guest house to entertain her guests, so what more could anyone ask for? Did we mention the custom furniture and British mansion ambiance? Just check it out!

3. Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin – $10.45 million

Right after Jennifer, on out most expensive celebrity homes list comes a beautiful $10.45 million purchase. Just before they got divorced, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin purchased a stunning house in Los Angeles, tired of commuting between New York City and England.

Their family of four, including the pair’s two kids Apple and Moses, lived here for a few years and had at their disposal 8000 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms and a very high-end kitchen.

This impressive Spanish-Colonial/ Mid Century modern mansion cost the famous couple $10.45 million. It was all worth it, if you look at it!

4. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West – $11 million

After a relationship and pregnancy that took everybody by surprise and after living in Chis Jenner’s house for several months, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have decided to move into their own home.

Easier said than done, no matter it took them so long to decide on a property: after going back and forth through their options, they finally chose a beautiful Bel Air that looked more like a fixer-upper in the beginning. After investing a few million dollars in it, they enjoyed the result. Isn’t this one of the most expensive celebrity homes ever?

5. Katy Perry – $11.2 million

The blue-eyed superstar actually purchased two adjoining properties and turned them into what it looks to be a high-end family resort. Several magazines reported that Katy Perry paid $11.2 million for these properties in Runyon Canyon in the Hollywood Hills, totaling 3.95 acres.

The beautiful estate features two gated entrances, two guesthouses, two swimming pools and spas and even an equestrian facility. From the looks of it, Katy Perry could very well become a real estate agent if she wishes, because she sure has the flair. Can’t help talking about this house when the most expensive celebrity houses are on the news!

6. Rihanna – $12 million

As we move on to our most expensive celebrity homes, we find a stylish mansion. The Barbadian beauty made this Pacific Palisades, California, her home after paying no more, no less than $12 million!

The 11,000-square-feet estate has seven bedrooms and it was built a few years ago, in 2005. This is not Rihanna’s first attempt at buying a home: after purchasing a $2.4 million Beverly Hills house, she filed a lawsuit against the former owner saying the house was unlivable because it flooded during a rainstorm. Don’t worry, Rihanna, this one looks pretty solid to us!

7. Jessica Simpson – $13 million

When she got pregnant with her son, Jessica Simpson had one thing in mind: she needs to start looking for a bigger home in order to make room for the new member of the family.

After searching the market for a while, she chose to buy a beautiful $12 million house that belonged to Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne. And it was perfect for what she needed: 11,000-square-feet property, 7 bedrooms, amazing gardens, a swimming pool, maid quarters, libraries, master suite and everything she could’ve wanted. Oh, and did we mention that it has its own gym?

8. Heidi Klum and Seal – $13.4 million

In 2010, supermodel Heidi Klum and her husband Seal purchased a $13.4 million home that, believe it or not, came with Napoleon’s very own fireplace! If you’re into wooden furnishings, this might be your dream house too!

The property, located in Los Angeles, has an acreage of 12,300 square feet, was built in the Mediterranean style and is located in the suburbs of Brentwood, where other celebrities like Gisele Bundchen, Jennifer Garner, and Reese Witherspoon also purchased homes.

This expensive estate includes its own library, swimming pools, and gourmet kitchen, although the supermodel admitted to not being a very keen cook.  On our most expensive celebrity homes list is unlikely to find another residence with such a famous fireplace!

9. 50 Cent – $18.5 million

Yes, we are talking about the mansion you’ve seen on MTV – My Crib, the one that featured a huge pool, a squash court, and an impressive gym, its own pool room with great lighting, separate living areas with their own kitchens, bedrooms, living rooms and any other facilities. The reason for which the famous rapper and its home are going separate ways?

He is too busy and travels a lot, which means that flying to Connecticut, where this property is located, is really inconvenient for him. If you happen to have $18.5 million in your pocket and you don’t really know what to do with it, could we interest you in this beautiful house? Plus, it’s one of the most expensive celebrity homes ever!

10. Matt Damon – $20 million

Yes, Matt Damon and his $20 million Miami villa recently parted ways. Don’t be sad, he found a new one, so it’s all good. However, this beautiful property once belonging to the famous actor featured 7 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a theater, a two-bedroom guesthouse and an acreage of 43,000 square feet (it was big indeed).

Although he didn’t get the price he asked for, he still gains almost a million dollar (when he purchased the house, he did it for $14.5 million and then sold it for $15.375, so don’t pity him). He’ll probably purchase another property worthy of our most expensive celebrity homes list!

11. Will and Jada Pinkett Smith – $20 million

Just like any other couple who loves having fun in the sun, Will and Jada decided to buy a property in Hawaii a while ago and so they did! Their seven-acre estate gained a new owner at the end of 2011 when the Smiths sold it for $20 million.

Their former home is exactly how you’d expect it to be: fun, luxurious, with 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, swimming pools, and gyms. Although they lost this beautiful mansion, they made a huge profit: originally, the house was bought for $13.5 million and then sold for $20 million, which means the famous family made a profit of $6.5. Isn’t this one of the most expensive celebrity homes ever? We sure think so!

12. Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady – $20 million

If this awesome property will not make your jaw to drop, then nothing else will. Starting from its humble beginnings in 2010, when construction started on the land that the famous supermodel and her husband bought to this day, the house suffered a major transformation, becoming one of the most beautiful celebrity homes. Also, we appreciate the fact that they build their own home instead of buying a building that had several owners. This way, they made sure the house represents them and has everything they ever dreamed of.

And how should a supermodel’s house look like? Well, it must have a huge dresser, of course, plenty of room for all her shoes, a swimming pool, its own lake and many mirrors. If we ad Tom’s supersized gym and those spectacular driveways, it looks and sounds as if their home is everybody’s dream home. How can you not like it?

13. Oprah Winfrey – $55 million

Oprah couldn’t miss from our most expensive celebrity homes list, so here she is! The philanthropist and TV mogul owns this stunning $55 million with both mountain and ocean view, situated in Montecito, California. Although she has many other properties, like another home in Lavallette, one in New Jersey, an apartment in Chicago and so on, this one is probably the most luxurious.

Plus, it’s close to Hollywood and all the celebrities that she’s friends with, meaning that this is where Oprah spends most of her time. Although she and her better half don’t have any kids, they are the proud owners of five dogs. Just take a look at it and tell us what you think!

14. Tiger Woods – $60 million

This beautiful property belonging to Tiger Woods is facing major problems nowadays: believe it or not, it has a big hole right in the middle of the dining room, threatening to tear apart the entire building.

Experts say that the golfer’s Jupiter Island, Florida, mansion can sink every minute. This being said, Tiger packed up his stuff and moved in with Lindsey Vonn, his girlfriend, until the things get back to normal.

However, before this happened (and nobody knows what lead to this incident), the house belonged to both Tiger Woods and his ex-wife. After an expensive divorce that allegedly cost $100 million, the golfer turned his house into a bachelor retreat and damaged its structure so bad that is made a gap in the dining room. Talk about partying! Do you like his house?  

We are one step away from finding out who’s the proud owner of the most expensive celebrity home!

15. Petra Ecclestone – $150 million (you read that right!)

For those of you who don’t know her, Petra Ecclestone is a British heiress, model and socialite. Her father is Formula 1 mogul Bernie Ecclestone and her model is supermodel Slavica. Although occasionally indulging in creating women’s clothing, her real job is spending money! And spend money she did when she purchased this amazing $150 million mansion located in Los Angeles, reportedly the most expensive house in the United States!

The 56,000 square-feet residence is bigger than the White House, close to Rodeo Drive, has 14 bedrooms, but more than 100 rooms in total, 27 bathrooms and enough space to park over 100 cars! Petra makes it to number 1 on our most expensive celebrity homes list with this shocking purchase. What do you think: was it worth it?

Celebrities are well-known for their extravagant lifestyle and for their financial ability to purchase almost anything, so it’s no surprise that some of the most expensive celebrity homes cost so much! We’ll just have to see which one of them will change owners soon and which ones will be repossessed due to poor financial investments.

  • well although most of those houses look very attractive that is insane! If I ever get a huge amount of money I would be fine with living in a small country cabin in the woods somewhere not some huge house to upkeep. I guess though these people can do as they wish with their millions.

    • I think greater wealth is when you are satisfied with what you already have. It’s a state of not needing to continually fill some materialistic gap that never can be full because there is always something that will be new, better quality, stylish, etc. Living in a small country cabin is enough for someone to live in happily. I don’t see why people want to spend millions in this way. It’d be better to donate to charity or research instead of blow it all on extravagant living.

  • I won’t be too critical because I know that those who own these homes have to employ s lot of people to take care of them, people like me who need jobs, but I do wonder if they can really enjoy so much house. It just seems to big for less than a large extended family all living together.

    • Actually that is a good point. The one good thing about these rich fancy houses is that they usually have a wait staff, cook and housekeepers. In that sense that makes it pretty cool. I don’t think I could enjoy a huge home like that with so many rooms, especially if living alone.

  • Huh. How nice it would be to have this much money to spend! Living in Europe, I can safely say that many of these homes are bigger than a lot of the castles here. I have no idea what they need all the space for — a new kid does not take this much room, Jessica Simpsons! But I guess to host magnificent parties, a big ass mansion is required.

    I remember when I was a kid, watching all the pictures of celebrities’ homes and wanting a huge house with a pool and a tennis court on the roof.

    Now, I am pretty sure I would just need a nice lil’ house somewhere. If only I could afford that much!

  • I often wonder why people who live in houses like that ever need to leave! They must have cinema rooms, swimming pools, bowling alleys, tennis courts, excellent kitchens and places to entertain.. there’s literally no need for them to go anywhere! However, I wouldn’t want a house like that myself. They just seem far too large to be able to do anything with. I love having houses with a couple of bedrooms and maybe two reception rooms, but nothing bigger than that, because I just wouldn’t know what to do with the space.

  • Wow, the amount of money these people spend in their houses is incredible. I’d do the same if I had it, get a great house (not too big, but with enough rooms, a terrace, maybe a small pool? or Jacuzzi) and then from there just live happy in my place. I would maybe rent the rooms. Here I am, dreaming… A game room?

    I would never build spaces for other people… my family and me, that’s it.

  • I am blown away by these homes. The pictures look gorgeous and it be interesting living in one of these homes. The cost of cleaning/maintenance would be astronomical though. There would be so much space that I don’t even know what to do with.

  • These houses are just gorgeous, but I can not imagine a family of one living in them. These are awfully large houses and but an awful lot of open space for one family. Even though it must be nice having a relaxing place for everything around the house, but I can also imagine it getting annoying.

  • I think the price tags on these homes are more impressive than their design or structure. Of course the overall amount accounts for the neighborhoods that these houses are built on. I bet a lot of one-percenters live close to these houses.
