PAT BOONE – $18.5 MILLION, BEVERLY HILLS
The younger generation may no longer be familiar with this music legend, but during the 1950s, he was very famous. A young Elvis Presley used to open shows for him—a testament to his popularity and legacy. These days, however, he’s leading a quieter life in his Beverly Hills home. Who would want to leave their own property when it’s got 7,032 square feet and features 6 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, a pool, manicured lawns, and a bonus guesthouse?
The 2-story traditional-style home was first built in 1939 and is in prime real estate. The house has undergone a number of upgrades and minor modifications in the past and its market value has skyrocketed since Pat Boone purchased it. Now we know where his investment money went – building his dream home with his wife and making memories that can never be bought with money. The singer’s legacy in music will forever be remembered by his fans and if he decides to sell the house one day, we’re sure it will be scooped up right away!
NANCY GRACE – $1.6 MILLION, ATLANTA
This one’s on the market if you have $1.60 million on hand! It was in 2014 when the home underwent some major renovations, but Nancy Grace had been living in it for the past 18 years. There’s a coziness to the 5-bedroom home, despite its size. It was first purchased in 1996 for $407,500 but that was before the hostess’s husband went about remodeling the original structure—almost nothing of which is left.
They had to make enough room for the family, after all, including a playroom and a treehouse for the twins! We are sure there’s ample home security for this nest as well.Modern home security technology and protocols have been implemented into the residence and it can be seen that the former hostess values the safety of living in her house. It is yet to be confirmed if she ever plans on putting her house back on the market.
KIEFER SUTHERLAND – $10.5 MILLION, MONTANA
What do you do if your bride runs away four days before the wedding was to happen, leaving you and a lakeside property behind? Well, in Kiefer’s case, he’s selling it—for quite a hefty chunk of money. The 10,000-square-foot property is in Whitefish, Montana, and is known for its adorable moniker “Golden Bear Ranch”. The land comes with a log-cabin-styled home connected by a path to the lake below.
It is a breathtaking location, equipped with all modern luxuries despite its closeness to nature. The property is a beautiful investment because of its sheer size, so if Kiefer Sutherland ever decides to sell the house, it will catch the eyes of many investors. Too bad we will not be able to afford it, even with some extreme money management practices. The house contains the legacy and memories of one of Hollywood’s greatest actors making it an even more expensive purchase than it originally was.
ROBIN WRIGHT – $3 MILLION, MANHATTAN
Much like her House of Cards character, actress Robin Wright is living well in modern luxury considering her newest purchase is a $3-million apartment located in NYC’s West Village. The apartment building has a total of 25 units and is conveniently close to Washington Square Park and Union Square. Her place comes with 11-foot-high ceilings, a marble-clad fireplace, a balcony that overlooks a garden, and two roomy bedrooms!
Our favorite feature, however, would be the solid oak doors and flooring as these lend the space a touch of coziness. The best bit? She has stunning views of the Empire State Building come nighttime. A million-dollar view paired with an impressive home is rare for an apartment located in New York so making the decision to invest in an apartment was one of the best decisions of Robin Wright. We can only guess what the current market value for the house is!
BRAD PITT – $1.7 MILLION, LOS FELIZ
The actor first bought this home back in 1994 and despite huge successes, as well as significant increases in his net worth—he has chosen to stay in it. Most of his children grew up here and now that he is finalizing his separation from Angelina Jolie, this is where he still lives despite owning several other properties. His home was valued at $1.7 million back in 1994, so it’s safe to say it costs a lot more than that now—with renovations and other additions to it. Just recently, he has put further investments into the property and spruced up his ever-reliable home.
The house is now a modern living space with most of the amenities that current homes have and more. Brad Pitt has earned a lot of money over the course of his career and the investment he made on this house is priceless in comparison to bigger and larger residences on the market.
HUGH JACKMAN – $21 MILLION, WEST VILLAGE
Moving on from more humble abodes, we have Hugh’s West Village that has luxury written all over it. For a cool $21 million, the apartment comes with 3 levels and covers a total of 11,000 square feet. Each level also features floor to ceiling glass windows and whilst these might be a minor privacy issue, the view it provides of the Hudson River is well worth the compromise. Besides, the unit is all the way up on the 10th floor—no one’s peeking through these windows anytime soon.
It is a Zen space, with high roofing, and calming interiors fit for the busy actor. The Australian actor has portrayed characters in his career that people around the globe will remember for a very long time. His residence may even contain most of the acting memorabilia he’s collected over the years. Can you imagine buying this house and seeing the adamantium claws on display in the living room?
GRACE KELLY – $775,000, PHILADELPHIA
Ever wondered what it’s like to be as glamorous as Grace Kelly? Well, her childhood home should give you a nice glimpse of what it means to be one of the stunning faces of Hollywood back in the day. Prince Albert of Monaco bought the property to keep it from getting destroyed and has plans to turn the home into a museum dedicated to his mother’s legacy.
The colonial-style brick estate has 6 bedrooms and even has the original door marked with Grace and her sibling’s heights! We’re glad the home was sold to their family—the previous owners had plenty of offers but chose Prince Albert’s instead. In his hands, it will be given ample home security. The home may have been built a long time ago but the new owner of the house has given it numerous upgrades descriptive of a 21st-century residence, giving potential buyers the peace of mind that they need.
TERI HATCHER – $1.49 MILLION, STUDIO CITY, CALIFORNIA
The actress first bought the home in 2000 for $1.49 million, but it has now increased in value since then. The 4,106-square-foot property comes with 3 furnished bedrooms, a spa, 4.5 bathrooms, an outdoor kitchen, a pool, and even a playground for the kids. It is truly one of the most beautiful houses in the area. Whilst she might be moving on to a different property, she is not parting with this home just yet and is offering it for rent. How much, you ask? That is $25,000 per month for long term leasers and $30,000 for short term ones.
We are not about to take out a money loan for this one, but the price is reasonable considering the amenities! If anyone were to purchase the property, they wouldn’t spend that much to turn it into a perfect living space that meets all the needs of any family size.
MICHAEL JORDAN – $15 MILLION, CHICAGO
He is, without a doubt, one of the most legendary basketball players—his name alone is synonymous with the sport. Michael works hard, but he also enjoys the fruits of his labor. His $15-million property in Chicago is a testament to this. The 9-bedroom property comes with its own gym, indoor basketball court, wine cellar, card room, and tennis court. Outside, the property is surrounded by green lawns, a set of ponds, and pools that bring nature into the residence. He may have other investments, but we are sure this one is his favorite. The 23 adorning the front gates says it all.
The home is certainly a marvel to look at and who to better own such a magnificent home than the one and only Michael Jordan? If the house was put on sale today, the price would be two to three times higher than what the hall-of-fame former NBA superstar paid for.
COLIN FARREL – $1.49 MILLION, HOLLYWOOD HILLS
This cottage-style property is certainly a quaint addition to the usually cold and intimidating homes found in the Hollywood Hills. You can rarely find a house that feels like it is lived in this area especially because most celebrities live there. It was purchased back in 2010, together with his ex-partner Alicja Bachleda-Curuś for $1.8 million.
The home was built in the 1920s and comes with 4 bedrooms—not much has been done to change its original interiors even though Colin has owned it for over a decade now. He did spend a fair amount sprucing up the place to a certain degree, but it is worth the work. The house is a perfect blend of classic and modern design as the actor seems to have a knack for decorating houses. The views from this property? Incomparable. No wonder the actor fell in love with it and has decided to keep it through the years.
GWYNETH PALTROW – $5.6 MILLION, HAMPTONS
Aside from having a remarkably successful Hollywood career, it is said that Gwyneth’s also inherited quite a hefty sum from her parents. Not that she really needs the extra money since the actress is making plenty enough on her own. No wonder she’s got a number of real estate properties to her name, including one in the Hamptons which she purchased together with her ex-husband Chris Martin.
Gwyneth Paltrow is known for being highly organized and meticulous to detail which is why it is no wonder that she has hired a number of people to make modifications to her properties. This specific property has seen a host of upgrades over the years and it is yet to be confirmed whether the actress has any more plans for it. If we had a bank account even remotely like Gwyneth’s, we will definitely put money into real estate investments as well.
BO DEREK – UNDISCLOSED AMOUNT, SANTA YNEZ, CALIFORNIA
Her name is closely associated with the ‘80s and ‘90s, but the actress-model-producer is certainly more than just her former bombshell image. Now that she’s semi-retired from the industry, it’s caring for her the animals in her ranch that’s keeping her busy. Country and ranch living seems to be what the actress has always wanted to do as she seems to be the happiest whenever she’s on the ranch. Her love for animals does not stop there, however. She even has investments in a pet care line!
Her property in Santa Ynez is a great fit for the lifestyle she has chosen. It’s got huge fields with a view of the beautiful hills—it’s also quiet and offers her complete privacy. The ranch style home is where she maintains her horses as well. The house a spacious and expansive lot that her horses can freely roam wherever they are let loose.
NICOLE KIDMAN AND KEITH URBAN – $2.75 MILLION, TENNESSEE
This property may have spent a whole year on the market, but this power couple finally managed to sell it—but not before lowering the asking price by almost a million. That said, the price tag is well worth every penny on this rural Tennessee home. One can’t find a home quite like this one as it used to shelter two of Hollywood’s greatest actors at one time. It covers 5,086 square feet, has a total of 4 bedrooms, an office, walk-in closets, 5 bathrooms, and even a fitness room.
The décor fits well with its location and also reflects Nicole’s personal style—understated yet elegant. The house has also seen a few upgrades to home security and most people wouldn’t even bother looking at that aspect when viewing residences. The skylights make this home even more ethereal. A dream home for anyone who can afford this, whether cash or credit.
ALICIA KEYS – $14.9 MILLION, NEW JERSEY
For someone who sung praises about NYC in one of her songs, Alicia Keys actually doesn’t currently live in the Big Apple. Instead, she spends her days in a property in New Jersey, one that covers 25,000 square feet. The house comes with everything she might need—without having to leave. It has 8 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, a recording studio, a theatre, an indoor pool, and a bowling alley.
The singer/songwriter certainly didn’t skimp out on the basic amenities and personal luxuries that this home has. Its current value is at $14.9 million, but she originally bought it for $10.4 million from actor Eddie Murphy, another equally tasteful celebrity that has a number of stunning properties worth looking at. With such luxurious amenities within the property, we hope she includes extra home security as well! The house does seem to be properly secured and has enough clearance to make any kind of exterior upgrades that the owner desires.
TOM BRADY AND GISELE BUNDCHEN – $20 MILLION, TRIBECA, NEW YORK
Another power couple who are business and investment savvy. The two own a modern luxe abode from 70 vestries. Each unit in this building comes with a spacious balcony that provides an excellent view of the skyline, but the outside is just one of the features of this lavish condo. The interiors are tasteful yet reflect the couple’s expensive tastes—from the marble to the contemporary furniture pieces used to adorn it. A celebrity couple living in the same space is certainly something to desire as the design of the home after they moved in has changed over time.
The kitchen features advanced kitchen appliances, all top-of-the-line for the lady of the house. It really is a beautiful home and we’re sure that they didn’t even need a money loan for it. The house wouldn’t need any more significant upgrades for the next few years as it is fully decked out from interior to exterior.
PHIL MCGRAW – $6.25 MILLION, BEVERLY HILLS
He’s made a name for himself helping others through their issues; beginning with his guest appearances on Oprah before landing his namesake show later on. With this came money, investment deals, and numerous other financial resources. In fact, Dr. Phil had 3 mansions in Beverly Hills before deciding to sell the smallest one for $6.25 million. Despite the house being the smallest of the properties that he’s owned, it was certainly one of the most beautiful homes we’ve ever seen.
The house was built in 2006 and features 5 bedrooms and bathrooms, a chef’s kitchen, a pool with a resort-level spa, a grand stairwell, and an outdoor entertainment area. It may not have been the biggest of his properties, but it did have a lot of luxurious investments. Phil McGraw is an exceptional entertainer with an even more impressive career as a businessman and investor. We’re excited to see what other properties he’s planning to put up for sale in the future!
KIM ZOLCIAK-BIERMANN – UNDISCLOSED AMOUNT, GEORGIA
This large home seems to be just the right fit for an equally big family, which is what the reality TV star has. Within 17,000 square feet, the property has a home theater, a swimming pool, a gym, a spa, and even a basketball court. We are sure her athlete husband appreciates having his own little “playground” right at home. A property of this scale and size would surprise people if it didn’t have dedicated areas for every type of amenity.
The mansion is a waterfront, which provides stunning views and a cool breeze that provides ventilation throughout the property without needing to rely on air-conditioning most of the time. If it gets colder during the winter months, we’re sure that the 8 fireplaces are more than enough to keep the household warm. In terms of investments, their entire family will get to enjoy this one for years to come.
RICK HARRISON – $4 MILLION, LAS VEGAS
The reality TV star only lived in this property for a little under 3 years, before concluding that it is simply too big for him and his wife. After all his children had moved out, the 8,845-square-foot mansion probably felt quite empty and isolated. It features 4 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, a theatre, elevator, spa, and lagoon-style pool. Rick spent $600,000 on renovations and lucky buyers could score themselves a great deal for $4 million in prime real estate. Let us not forget that the price comes with a 10-foot-high waterfall—the cherry on top of the cake if you have the investment money for the place!
Most people looking to buy the house are dazzled by the fact that the owner is one of the stars of Pawn Stars, the one and only Rick Harrison. You might think that the house could come with a few rare items that he’s bought over the years!
TOM BROKAW – $6.3 MILLION, WESTCHESTER COUNTY
He’s been the subject of headlines lately, but it isn’t for the best of reasons. Indecent assault allegations may have placed Tom in an uncertain situation, but he isn’t without the support of people who speak for the journalist’s integrity and decency. It may or may not be connected to the recent controversy, but the Nightly News former anchor has listed his 53-acre property in Westchester County for $6.3 million. It could mean one of a few things and we certainly hope that bankruptcy isn’t one of them.
The price includes his 4,000-square-foot lakeside home with a gorgeous view of the surroundings as well as modern amenities that will suit all the needs of potential buyers. Tom Brokaw’s house is definitely a good purchase for someone looking for a bit of peace and quiet away from the bustling city life. Exactly what Tom’s lawyer might need after working on his case?
VENUS WILLIAMS – $1.8 MILLION, LOS ANGELES
Venus Williams put her Los Angeles home on the market for $1.8 million, located in the heart of Nichols Canyon. The house has many things to boast of, like having three beds and two baths, sitting on a half-acre land. However, it looks like the tennis superstar, who is the older sister of another tennis icon, Serena Williams, will not earn any significant gains from selling the home as the price tag she is selling it for is lower than what she originally paid.
Williams bought the house for $1.9 million in 2005 and had it renovated, even adding more investments to make it the place that she wanted. She added a new deck, floors, a fireplace, and hardware to be the luxurious home with a mid-century modern style that it is today. Hence, it is undoubtedly worth every penny of its new owner with its latest additions, features, and amenities.
STEVEN SPIELBERG – $15 MILLION PACIFIC PALISADES
If you’re one of the film industry’s greatest directors, with numerous blockbusters under your belt, what will you do with some of your hard-earned money? In Steven’s case, he invested some of it into this magnificent property, purchased from Bobby Vinton back in 1985. The property has aged surprisingly well despite being bought more than 30 years ago, but a lot of its maintenance can be attributed to the meticulous guidance of Spielberg which is known for his keen eye to detail and precise observational skills. Currently valued at $15 million, it is 145,000 square feet of lush greens—and even has its own vineyard!
With the way the home looks today, it’s hard to imagine that it was neglected and dilapidated when they bought it. Must have taken major investments in money and energy, given what it takes to bring an old home back to life. Steven Spielberg has a long list of blockbuster hits under his name and it’s obvious that money is nothing but a trivial matter for the director.
JUDGE MATHIS – $3.20 MILLION, TARZANA, CALIFORNIA
The judge now has more than 20 seasons of his namesake courtroom series to his legacy, but there’s no real sign of him slowing down as he is seen to be healthier than he’s ever been. Let us just say, he works hard and plays hard—something that is reflected in his 6,399-square-foot property located in Tarzana. His “mini-resort” comes with a total of 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, plus a backyard entertainment area, a grilling station, a lagoon-style pool, waterfalls, lounging terraces, and a hidden spa grotto. Who would want to leave home when you have all of the above? Nobody, of course.
Well, Judge Mathis must keep grinding if he’s to continue making that money. The Judge has many investments that will keep him and his family wealthy for many generations to come and his taste in luxurious living reflects his dedication and hard work to achieve this stature.
VALERIE BERTINELLI – UNDISCLOSED AMOUNT, LOS ANGELES
A family of 7 requires plenty of space for everyone to move around. Luckily, Valerie’s Los Angeles property has that covered. However, it’s the kitchen that she truly favors most—being a celebrity chef with her own published cookbooks can only mean that she spends plenty of time in it. Aside from cooking, she also enjoys the library and reading room in her home, where she would relax after filming or writing. The property also has a great outdoor space that overlooks the gorgeous canyons below. It is indeed a million dollar property with an equally priceless view!
We don’t know its market value, but we’re sure it’s well worth the investments Bertinelli made in it. The house is obviously a modern living space that has the influence of Valerie Bertinelli. One can be sure that the property has a few quirks and features that cannot be found in other homes.
DAVID LETTERMAN – UNDISCLOSED AMOUNT, SAYPO, MONTANA
Now that he’s got a bit more time in his hands, it’s not surprising for the former Late Show host to spend his days in this quiet ranch in Montana. That is 2700 acres for the family to cultivate and enjoy, and with an abundance of space to work with, the family can comfortably place a few more houses on the property should they need it in the future. Aptly named Deep Creek Ranch, the property features a 3,276-square-foot home with 3 bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as a detached garage.
Solitude does come with some cons and in 2003, a kidnapper was thwarted before he could enact his plan of taking David’s son and the boy’s nanny from the ranch. With such a big land, ample home security is a necessity and an expense that shouldn’t be overlooked. The property has been reported to receive a few upgrades in security in the past few years.
CRAIG FERGUSON – $6 MILLION, LOS ANGELES
The Scottish TV host and comedian might be well known for his jokes, but his LA home is anything but. Located in Bronson Canyon, the property features a multi-structure compound covering a total of 6,800 feet. The home has 7 bedrooms and 6.5 baths, and it is also currently on the market for potential buyers. There’s also a separate guest house within the property, a recording studio, a gym, a library pavilion, a pool, and even tented cabanas.
The interiors are classic in design, with French windows, high ceilings, and dark wood flooring that create an overall sense of opulence throughout. You can’t find a home quite like what Craig Ferguson has; abundant space for upgrades, several bathrooms, an extra guest house that can be renovated to become another dwelling, and even an adequately sized pool. The house is a gorgeous deal for anyone who has the money to buy it.
RUSSELL CROWE – $20 MILLION, NANA GLEN, AUSTRALIA
He may or may not have been doing a bit of sprucing up to his property in Nana Glen for his partner Terri Irwin, but one thing is for certain—the 989 acres in Australia’s New South Wales is a real beauty. With the recent fires that have been raging across the country, however, this property did receive some damage which also includes the mansion situated within it. The Australian fires were one of the most devastating natural phenomena to ever occur in a while and luckily for Russel Crowe, his mansion was situated just far enough that it wasn’t ravaged by the forest fires.
There were also allegations of firefighters skipping other homes along the way, having been directed to Crowe’s home instead. True or not, we sure hope insurance helps with getting everyone back on their feet. The Australian community can slowly get back on their feet if insurance companies go the extra mile and help them.
DANA PERINO – UNKNOWN VALUE, MANHATTAN
Settling down in New York was a seven-year journey for Dana Perino. The former Press Secretary grew up on a ranch in Wyoming, then eventually moved on to the White House where she worked for almost a decade. Life has certainly been a rollercoaster of events for Dana Perino and deciding to settle down and stay in one place is the best decision she’s made in a while.
Now that she is leading a more tranquil life, the Manhattan apartment is certainly the best place to do so. Right in the city center, but also offers a Zen environment for her husband and their beloved pooch, Jasper. The couple also has a home in southern California, but since they spend most of their time in NYC, we hope there’s ample home security there as well. Modern homes in New York have numerous options for private home security, ranging from your standard CCTV installations to bulletproof panels that can be custom-made to the customer’s needs.
DEMI LOVATO – $9.5 MILLION, HOLLYWOOD HILLS
From Disney star to global superstar, there’s no doubting the fact that Demi’s net worth has increased significantly since. Where does someone as young as her invest some of that money? Into some prime real estate, of course. Demi has certainly made smart decisions with the money that she’s earned throughout her career and it can be seen with her purchase of this gorgeous property. Her 5,546-square-foot home features 4 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. It comes with floor to ceiling glass windows, taking full advantage of the views provided by the Hollywood Hills, truly a combination of a million dollar house with a million dollar view!
This comes with a hefty price tag, though– $3.8 million to be exact when it was first bought. The house is currently on the market for those interested in new investments. However, the singer-songwriter has yet to confirm whether she’s looking for a house of the same size or bigger.
ERIC BRAEDEN – UNDISCLOSED AMOUNT, LOS ANGELES
He might have gained greater recognition through The Young and The Restless, a show he’s been in since the 1980s, but Eric has been acting in various TV shows years prior to landing the spot. Needless to say, he’s managed to save up enough to purchase this gorgeous property up in the more mountainous area of LA. The state has views unlike any other and owning a property on the mountainside is a luxury that even more prominent figures can’t have because of the scarcity of available properties.
Much like other homes in the area, it was once in danger of burning down during the 2018 Simi Valley fire—forcing the actor to evacuate. Through some stroke of luck, however, his property was left untouched. Nevertheless, we are sure he’s glad he has home insurance for his estate! The house does feature a number of protective measures set in place such as a firewall in some parts, however, an upgrade would probably put the house in a safer place in the future.
SUSAN LUCCI – $20 MILLION, THE HAMPTONS
This home was actually on the market for 2 years before it finally got sold off for $20 million. Why such a big price tag? Aside from who the owner is, the Shingle Style home is a grand 10,622-square-foot estate that also comes with stunning oceanfront views. IT was built in 1989, and the property features 7 bedrooms, 7.5 bathrooms, balconies, multiple porches, decks, It is also situated within a 1.4-acre plot of land. A stunning place fit for a Queen, Susan Lucci has that royal taste!
We can’t think of any other way that this home could be presented and decorated besides the magnificent ideology that Susan has embedded throughout its walls. This palatial home has a European-style palace door—letting guests know what awaits them inside. Whoever bought this home must have an excellent credit report—$20 million is no chump change let alone an easy amount to put together!
GENIE FRANCIS – $4 MILLION, CALIFORNIA
Genie Francis became a popular actress after her portrayal of Laura Spencer in the soap opera General Hospital, which eventually earned her a Daytime Emmy Award. She also appeared in several other soaps like The Young and the Restless, Days of Our Lives, and All My Children.
Before getting sold for $4 million, this California property was where the actress resided for about two years. It was originally bought for $2.8 million, so the almost doubled selling price is certainly impressive. The property measures 8,900 square feet with six bedrooms and eight bathrooms in total. While the shape of the estate might seem a bit unconventional for some, it is never short of luxurious details. From its stone-accented exterior to the crystal chandelier hanging from the home’s double-height foyer that’s about the size of a small car, everything is lavishly decorated. The house is certainly worth the $4 million, considering all of these other investments!
ANTHONY GEARY – $950,000, LOS ANGELES
Anthony Geary is one of the notable actors in Hollywood, although his secret to the craft is somewhat uncanny. He might have been joking in an interview when he said that being a liar helped him in acting. Now, this might be an unusual technique but it’s undoubtedly useful for him. We cannot judge him personally for this claim, of course. His friends and family, on the other hand, are vouching that he is a good and respected man.
Given that the actor prefers living in Amsterdam, it wasn’t too surprising when he decided to put this 2,414-square-foot Hollywood Hills home on the market. The property comes with three bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms—and it was first bought in 1982 for a mere $262,500. It has been left neglected and may even appear abandoned to outsiders, but a bit of remodeling and updating should bring it back to life. Besides, the view of the canyon from this home isn’t something you can put a price tag on. Aside from redesigning, increasing its current home security will also be beneficial.
DENZEL WASHINGTON, UNDISCLOSED AMOUNT, BEVERLY HILLS
Denzel Washington’s talents are often well-praised by award-giving bodies. He has received two Academy Awards for Best Supporting Actor, seventeen NAACP Image Awards, and three Golden Globe Awards. These accolades only prove that he is not just a handsome actor, but an exceptional one as well.
With an assumed net worth of over $190 million and a yearly salary of $90 million, there’s little left to wonder about how the decorated actor was able to afford this Beverly Hills mega-mansion easily. The stunning home was built back in 1999 and it covers 28,887 square feet of land. It comes with eight bedrooms and 14 bathrooms, inclusive of small guest houses throughout the property. With Mundy Entertainment located within the property itself, the ever-professional Denzel doesn’t even need to spend a dime on gas in order to go to work— unless he takes the car to go around his 2.3-acre estate, that is.
JENELLE EVANS – UNDISCLOSED AMOUNT, NORTH CAROLINA
Another reality TV star, this time from MTV’s Teen Mom 2, made it on this list. Being a teen mom did not stop Jenelle Evans from reaching her goals and aspirations in life. In fact, the struggles she experienced before and beyond the show made her stronger. Jenelle always tries her best to give the best life she can offer for her kids, and when she entered Teen Mom 2, many people admired her bravery and courage. Jenelle’s North Carolina property was going to be the spot for her dream home.
That was the plan until inspectors concluded that it was actually sinking due to a drainage issue, rendering their investment futile as the house is unfit to be lived in. Funnily enough, her husband took to social media and even threatened builders, demanding that their home be placed upon stilts instead of following the expert’s suggestion. We hope he finally understood that this isn’t just a matter that plumbing services can fix—especially since their safety can be put at risk.
ANN COULTER – $577,000, NEW YORK CITY
Her opinions may not be to everyone’s tastes, but author and lawyer Ann Coulter has certainly established a spot for herself as a Fox News favorite. Being an outspoken and brave woman entails having critics waiting to punce on you after making a single mistake. In spite of these challenges, Ann is unstoppable; hence she even made her family proud by doing the best she can in her chosen career. It seems like the American pundit is very particular with her taste and expectations, so it comes as no surprise that Ann has decided to invest in some prime NYC real estate.
Located in the Upper East Side and costing a little over half a million, this 1,400-square-foot and 2-bedroom abode sold for much lower than its actual estimated value because of one reason: the home already had a tenant living in it. That fact aside, the property was certainly a steal even though it admittedly needed some renovation. No worries, because even Ann can shoulder the upgrades with the hefty amount she made out of her career.
OPRAH WINFREY – $50 MILLION, CALIFORNIA
With a net worth of over $3 billion, Oprah Winfrey can purchase just about anything her heart desires and she’ll still have enough cash and kindness to help others out. At this point, everyone knows the world-renowned media personality, but not a lot of people know about her roots. She actually grew up underprivileged, and her adolescent period was a struggle, but Oprah never failed to see the silver lining in every situation. Fast forward to a few decades later, the beloved talk show host has been given credit as the “Queen of All Media”, and is now thriving under a multi-million net worth.
Oprah has always been interested in real estate, with her biggest one valued at $50 million. The mansion is in California, situated on a 23,000-square-foot property. Since purchasing it, the hostess has done numerous renovations and raised its value to $90 million. The amount might have gone down, though, given that the property did suffer some damages during the California flash flood of 2018. This just shows that while real estate properties make for great investments, there’s always a risk factor involved.
CHERYL TIEGS – $18.5 MILLION, BEL-AIR, LOS ANGELES
Cheryl is a supermodel and an iconic image in the 70s, as described by her fans. She’s one of the most popular models during the ’60s and ’70s, gracing the covers of various magazines with her doll-like looks. Cheryl’s also become a pop culture icon, all due to that pink bikini she once donned for a photoshoot. She never worries about cash loans because she is already an achiever way back at her young age.
We bet she never imagined that it would become part of her legacy! These days, however, she’s keeping busy with various philanthropic work; this includes Earth Conservation Corps, the Farrah Fawcett Foundation, and C.O.A.C.H for Kids. To her credit, the 4,770-square-foot Balinese home she owns in Los Angeles is a well-deserved luxury, given all the excellent work she does. Cheryl sure can buy all the things she wants, including designer bags and shoes. Don’t worry because she never neglects her family and gives them the best of life.
SEAN HANNITY – $3.6 MILLION, LONG ISLAND, NEW YORK
One of the best talk show hosts in the world is Sean Hannity. He is a political commentator, a conservative one, but very outspoken. He established his talk show called The Sean Hannity Show. He has gathered further comments from being a political commentator, but this is his way of turning his career great. He loved it when people comment, and he turned this into an inspiration.
His so-called secret real estate empire may be the subject of controversy, but this particular property is a well-known purchase. We’re unsure if he still lives in the mansion with his family, but what’s certain is that it was on the market back in 2014. The political commentator allegedly owns a number of shell companies, something that he didn’t dispute during investigations, which he used to buy over 900 properties across 7 states in the past decade. Whilst many things remain unclear about this case, it has been proven that he took out a $2.5-million money loan on this Long Island property.
LYNDA CARTER – VALUE UNKNOWN, MARYLAND
When you heard the name Lynda Carter, you can always imagine the beautiful, astonishing lady. No doubt that she was once a Miss Word USA back in 1972. Since then, her name has become known in the beauty world, and she eventually ventured out into acting.
The actress and pop culture icon is pretty much synonymous with her role as Wonder Woman. Not too surprising given how great her performance as Diana Prince was. She quit the industry after she got married a second time and joined her husband in Washington where the family now resides. This is also where they found their dream home, a mansion in Maryland that sits within 20,000 square feet of land. Lynda refers to it as her “happy place” and has lived in the home with her family for almost 25 years. Needless to say, they won’t be needing a moving company anytime soon!
JOHN STAMOS – $5.75 MILLION, CALIFORNIA
One of the well-established and an excellent credit actor, musician, producer, singer, and comedian. He was recognized first for his role in Blackie Parrish on the ABC television series General Hospital. This series made him nominated for being a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series in Daytime Emmy Award.
Uncle Jesse certainly has one very Full House. John Stamos, the actor who portrays the character, scored big when he bought this Hidden Hills home for $5.75 million. Sure, it’s not a small amount of money, but considering the location and size of this property? We can safely say that it was a good deal. Within the 5,750-square-foot home, you’ll find 6 bedrooms and bathrooms, vaulted beam ceilings, expansive gardens, an outdoor pool and spa, a barbecue area, and even a barn! Despite its size, however, the house feels cozy and that’s because of our favorite feature: the gorgeous oak plank flooring.
NORMAN REEDS – $11.8 MILLION, NEW YORK CITY
We all know the brave and soft-hearted Daryl Dixon from The Walking Dead TV series. Norman Reedus, in real life, is a prominent and notable actor of all time. Besides being a great actor, he is a renowned model and once modeled for a designer brand like Prada.
The actor bought the townhouse together with his partner, Diane Kruger, and the pair got lucky with this one for the size and its location in NYC. The $11.8 million is certainly a steal. We’ll never know what the inside of this property looks like since it was an off-market transaction, but from the outside, it’s easy to see how huge the place is. The Federal-style building comes with 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, with a total of 8 fireplaces and even a roof terrace where they can enjoy the best views of the city. In terms of investments, this a very smart one.
LIAM HEMSWORTH – $6.8 MILLION, MALIBU
Liam began his acting career by following the same footsteps his elder brothers went. They went to school, plays together. From those moments, they already display an interest in the stage and appearing on TV. This eventually led him to be one of the in-demand actors, along with his brothers.
The Hunger Games star, who was also once married to Miley Cyrus, is originally from Australia but ended up falling in love with this property in Malibu. The 1,980-square-foot home is quite the charmer—despite having quite the hefty price tag of $6.8 million. It features 3 bedrooms and a multi-level deck, but it’s the pool that must have sealed the deal for the young actor. The interiors are modern but filled with natural light—something that the outdoorsy Liam must have also liked. The home is close to Miley’s, but given their status, is a moving company dropping by soon?
MEHMET OZ – $18 MILLION, PALM BEACH, FLORIDA
Mehmet Oz is a TV personality, professor, journalist, author, cardiothoracic surgeon, and pseudoscience promoter. He has his television show where he discussed personal health and different medical issues. He is a famous personality and sure has an exceptional credit and his name for sharing his views, opinions, and although gathering speculations from others, continue to do his part of being a doctor.
Better known by his TV moniker, Dr. Oz, currently owns an 11,074-square -foot property in Palm Beach, which he bought in an off-market deal. The oceanfront home, called Louwana, comes with 12 bedrooms and bathrooms, a cabana, loggia, guest house, tennis court, gardens, and even 150 feet of beachfront! It was designed in 1919 by Addison Mizner, who made sure that nearly every room in the residence comes with breathtaking ocean views. Such a big property that receives plenty of famous guests will certainly need ample home security, so we hope Dr. Oz has invested in that as well.
STEPHEN COLBERT – UNKNOWN VALUE, SOUTH CAROLINA
Stephen Colbert is a writer, political commentator, comedian, actor, producer, and TV host. He was one of the 100 Most Influential People in 2012 and 2006. Stephen also had won two Peabody Awards, nine Primetime Emmy Awards, and two Grammy Awards for being a good personality in his career.

Did you know that the residence was once converted into a bed and breakfast? It was managed by his mother who gave Stephen 10% in commission each time he successfully booked a guest! He might be living in the big city now, but this proud Charleston boy still speaks fondly of his hometown. To the host’s credit, the city loves him just as much. In fact, the property is a designated stop in various sightseeing and walking tours in the area.
NICHOLAS CAGE – $10.95 MILLION, SAN FRANCISCO
With his incredible $100 million net worth, Nicholas Cage is proud to share the long, arduous journey he went through to achieve these things. He was always a remarkable and prominent actor. Once during his prime, he even became the highest-paid actor in the industry and continued to have numerous career breakthroughs.
The Hollywood A-lister has a number of blockbusters to his name, so it really comes as no shock that Nicholas could easily spend $10 million on a property—especially if it’s as gorgeous as this home in the Bay Area. At 6,305 square feet, the 4-story property comes with stunning views no matter which room you’re in: the library, the dining rooms, the eat-in kitchen, and so on. The only exception is the closed wine cellar, where you can keep your finest wines. Whether the rumors of his recent bankruptcy are true or not, this house is on the market for those looking for their dream home.
MELANIE GRIFFITH – $4.3 MILLION, ASPEN
Melanie Griffith is an outstanding actress during her time. With her captivating beauty, she progressively lands roles that even eventually launched her career to greater heights. The stunning actress had many aspirations and hopes in life, and with the money she made while in showbiz, she made several investments to start making it come true, one property at a time.
Aspen, Colorado, is often the top choice for celebs when they want to escape for a bit without having to leave the country. In Melanie’s case, however, she’s selling off her mansion in the mountains—given that she and her family spend more time in Los Angeles. The property is two acres wide and located at the rear of the hill with 7,400 square feet of residential space. Astoundingly, the home was first built in 1994 and now features five bedrooms, six bathrooms, as well as floor to ceiling glass doors and windows. Tucked away in the mountains, this estate will definitely need a top-notch home security system.
ASHTON KUTCHER AND MILA KUNIS – $10 MILLION, BEVERLY HILLS
One of the powerful and well-admired couples in Hollywood is Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis. The former That 70s Show love team enjoys the life of being parents, but they are nowhere near leaving the acting industry behind. Undoubtedly, both skilled artists will continue to act in movies and series as an investment in their kids’ future.
Considering they’re two of Hollywood’s biggest names, you might be surprised to learn that the pair chose a relatively humble abode for their family. The beach house, which has three bedrooms and four bathrooms, is nestled in a gated Beverly Hills community. Measuring a total of 7,351 square feet, the residence was purchased after Ashton sold off his mansion back in 2014 for $12 million. Sure, this new home he got after isn’t as lavish or as big, but the estate makes up for it with ambiance. It is cozy with ample home security— just the right fit for the couple’s growing family.
SHEPARD SMITH – $3.95 MILLION, NEW YORK
The broadcast journalist has certainly established quite a formidable career for himself. Aside from having his own namesake show, Shepard Smith Reporting, he is also one of America’s most recognizable news personalities. He began working on several reporting jobs while making his way to becoming one of the best broadcasters in the world.
Only in his mid-fifties and with a career that’s still on the rise, he has a reported net worth of over $25 million. He might have put his Greenwich Village condo on the market for $4.9 million, but that’s not because he’s about to hit bankruptcy anytime soon. This is the second time the property’s gone for sale, but judging by the property’s history and the renovations done on it, it’s certainly a worthwhile investment if you have the money for it. With Smith’s massive net worth and numerous assets, he made sure to live the best life he could.
BILL O’REILLY – UNDISCLOSED AMOUNT, LONG ISLAND
Being in journalism, there’s always a risk of finding yourself in some level of controversy—this is what Bill O’Reilly experienced during his time in Fox News, which subsequently led to his termination. Difficulties aside, the journalist certainly has amassed quite the fortune during his tenure with the network. Despite various criticisms, the seasoned journalist remained calm and just did the best he could with his job. He stated that letting others affect and hurt his feelings will only bag down his career and morale. Instead, he turned their words into lessons that shall guide him to become better next time.
His net worth is said to be about $85 million; no wonder he was able to easily purchase this massive Long Island property. It was bought during the peak of his career and its value has increased in the years since. If the controversy leaves him jobless, bankruptcy shouldn’t be a problem for Bill.
DON LEMON – $31. MILLION, SAG HARBOR, LONG ISLAND
Known for his frankness and fearlessness when it comes to expressing his opinions, the CNN Tonight anchor approaches his personal life pretty much the same way. His hard work, for example, has resulted in his $3.1-million home located in Sag Harbor, Long Island. It’s the perfect escape for someone who likely deals with plenty of work-related stress. The vintage estate comes with 4 bedrooms, a back porch, a swimming pool, and even an outdoor shower. It’s also near enough the city, allowing him to visit when free time allows. Investments in both financial and mental health? This home ticks both boxes.
The house speaks of luxury, and we can only assume that even the flooring sure cost a lot. Given Don’s good credit standing, he is not bothered by the cost of expenses seeing as he can afford the high-end lifestyle. The award-winning anchor is considered one of the best in his field, and his years in the industry certainly paid off.
RUSH LIMBAUGH – $65 MILLION, PALM BEACH ESTATE
Rush Limbaugh is a famous American political commentator, conservative radio host, media personality, and a former TV show host. For his valuable work in media, Rush has amassed a net worth of $600 million. The conservative political commentator is one of the most listened to in the United States, with the Rush Limbaugh Show reaching about 13 million on average each broadcast. Not everyone will agree with his opinions, but there’s no doubting the level of influence he has on people. No wonder he’s amassed fortune great enough to invest in this ocean-front mansion.
The property features 5 separate houses and even has access to its own private beach. At over 24,000 square feet, it is no different from owning his own mini-resort. Costing over $65 million, we sure hope he’s invested in getting ample home security as well. Rush recently revealed that he is suffering from an illness and is currently on hiatus to recuperate. Many are praying along with his family that he’ll come back on the silver screen soon.
MATT DAMON – $15 MILLION, PACIFIC PALISADES, BEST HOUSE
As one of the most bankable actors in Hollywood, with a resume filled with blockbusters, it’s only fitting that Matt Damon purchases a home suited for his lifestyle. During the peak of his career, the star received different accolades from various award-giving bodies, including two Golden Globe Awards out of eight nominations, an Academy Award, six Emmy Awards, and three British Academy Film Awards. The actor was thankful to be surrounded by many teachers who taught him how to be social, making it easier for him to work with others on movies.
Matt found the one in Pacific Palisades, aptly called “Best House’, and it is a beauty. He bought the property back in 2012 for $15 million and it features 7 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, multiple swimming pools, and a garage big enough to house several cars. At 9,000 square feet, the property certainly packs a lot. Design-wise, it’s a mix of Spanish-colonial and California modern. We’re sure the actor didn’t even need home loans to score this residence.
HEIDI KLUM, $24 MILLION, LOS ANGELES
One of the highest-grossing supermodels in worldwide is Heidi Klum, and she has appeared on several huge magazine covers. Her modeling skills and beauty were very in-demand back then, and even until now. People will never forget the lingerie she designed for Victoria’s Secret back when she was still a model and fashion icon under contract.
She’s a multi-hyphenate who built her name and business from the ground up. But Heidi is not all work and no play—just look at her 12,300-square-foot Italian villa located in Los Angeles. The sprawling property comes with 8 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a playhouse for her kids, a spa, gazebos and fountains, a golf course, a pool, and even hiking trails! She does not even need to leave her home in order to enjoy nature’s beauty and escape from the chaos of the city. Priced at $24 million, it’s just one of the many worthwhile investments the model has made since starting her career.
BRITNEY SPEARS – $9 MILLION, CALIFORNIA
She’s a world-famous singer with countless chart-toppers to her name— then there’s the sold-out tours and various other products she’s lent her name to over the last two decades of her career. To Britney Spears’ credit, we were all impressed when she sold over 100 million records worldwide and over 70 million singles, songs, and albums in the United States alone. Of course, she’s not called the Princess of Pop for no reason. Long after the pop star’s heyday, her songs are still head-bopping tunes loved across several generations.
Britney’s current net worth is said to be at $215 million, but that’s bound to increase further given her Las Vegas residency. So, where does the new generation pop princess reside? In a lavish California estate, nonetheless. With 5 bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a media gaming room, outdoor pools, and entertainment areas—it’s the perfect fit for the mom of two. We hope she’s invested in good home security as well!
JENNIFER LAWRENCE – $8 MILLION, BEVERLY HILLS
Jennifer Lawrence has good investments in life. She has been an award-winning actress, and with a $160 million net worth, she can certainly afford anything. If you ask us, the Winter’s Bone star has come a long way— from being an actress who only lands small roles, Jennifer became one of the most iconic actresses of today.
She’s known for preferring a lifestyle that’s more low-key and away from the public eye, so we’re not too surprised that the actress was willing to spend quite a bit of money in order to make that happen. Her Beverly Hills property is 5,500 square feet of exclusivity and features 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, as well as a backyard lap pool. The land is surrounded by, more like hidden, by greenery, and it cost Jennifer $8 million to purchase. Judging by the look of this French-modern home, it’s worth every penny. We hope she’s put as much effort into home security as well!
TERRY SEMEL – $50 MILLION, MALIBU
Terry Semel is an American corporate executive who used to serve as a chairman and CEO under Yahoo! He also spent 24 years in Warner Brothers Studios as a co-chief executive officer and chairman, but he resigned because of all the pressure from its shareholders. Being the CEO of a company doesn’t always guarantee that you’ll make a fortune—the job also requires quite a lot of hard work and a certain amount of wit in order for you to really make it big.
Such is the case with Yahoo! ‘s former CEO and chairman, Terry Semel. He might be retired now, but what he’s invested in is paying off. Among which would be this $50-million property he bought in 2012—just 40 feet from the Pacific Ocean and with stunning views that will melt anyone’s stress away. With 3 separate areas, we bet the home security on this is top-notch. His amazing lifestyle and investments came from his pure hard work and passion.
JEFF BEZOS – $13 MILLION, CALIFORNIA
He’s one of the richest people in the world, with an estimated net worth of $108.2 billion—but may know him best as the man behind Amazon. Jeff Bezos is listed today as the number one in Forbes Magazine’s Real-Time Billionaires List. To his credit, the tech mogul started out with humble beginnings and eventually persevered in working his way up the business ladder. In fact, he began working on Amazon in his little garage at age 30!
A lot can be learned from this prolific entrepreneur, including how he spends his money. He recently bought his Beverly Hills mansion for $13 million in order to combine it with the property next door—which he also owns. Whether it be for personal investments or something he can gain from in the future, this guy has enough money to buy the entire neighborhood if he thinks it’d be a great business move to do so.
SCARLETT JOHANSSON – $3.8 MILLION, LOS ANGELES
She’s been one of Hollywood’s favorite female heroines for quite a while now, gaining worldwide recognition along the way. Scarlett Johansson was the world’s highest-paid actress in 2018 and 2019, and has been featured for many times in Forbes Celebrity 100 list. The films she did grossed over $14.3 billion across the globe, which makes her the ninth highest-grossing box office star of all time. No wonder she has never experienced the need to ask for cash loans in her life!
With such a successful career in films, are we really at all surprised that she’s managed to amass quite a small fortune for herself in the process? At least, enough to purchase this gorgeous $3.8-million home in Los Feliz. Whilst the views are heavenly, the home itself is just as inviting. It comes with a private spa, a pool house, and an outdoor eating space for entertaining her friends. We’re sure the actress didn’t even need to take out a loan for this property!
BILLY JOEL – $35 MILLION, MIAMI BEACH, FLORIDA
When you’re as successful as Billy Joel is when it comes to music, of course, you’ll only want to give yourself and your family the best. This 8,881-square-foot property in Florida was the best fit—beachfront with its own pier, a boat slip, a pool, an outdoor kitchen, and a home that features the best of both classical European and modern design. Built back in 2004, the home has 7 bedrooms and 8.5 bathrooms, and it is situated within the gated community of La Gorce Island. It sold in 2013 for $14 million to an Italian billionaire who had the investment money for it.
When it comes to his family, the famed musician never hesitated to give them the best in life. He always made sure to provide for their needs, and even splurge for little luxuries. In his defense, Billy said that money could always be found when you work harder, but family can never be replaced no matter what.
MILEY CYRUS – $2.5 MILLION, MALIBU
Hannah Montana will certainly proud of what Miley has achieved and what she has chosen to invest some of that hard-earned money in. Despite her relatively young age—one of the youngest on this list—the singer-actress successfully transitioned her TV success to becoming one of the world’s biggest pop artists. Miley is also an excellent producer and songwriter noted for her unique raspy voice. She has attained the most number of US Billboard 200 top-five albums in the 21st century by a female artist, which comes as no surprise, seeing as she inherited the singing genes from her father, the country crooner, Billy Ray Cyrus.
After the job’s done, however, where does she head to find a bit of peace and quiet? That would be her $2.5-million home in Malibu. The property has 4 bedrooms and bathrooms, a Jacuzzi, and outdoor areas perfect for sunbathing. This residence is just one in her list of real estate investments.
ROB LOWE – $42 MILLION, SANTA BARBARA
If you have no idea who Rob Lowe is, let us tell you. He is a renowned American TV actor who currently has a $100 million net worth. He became a household name in the 1980s and has since become a highly recognized man for his notable roles in TV shows like Parks and Creation and The West Wing.

In fact, her net worth is credited at around $330 million— all from her multiple album sales, merchandise, endorsements, and touring.
She’s currently one of the world’s most in-demand pop stars, with chart-topping songs and sold-out tours to her name. All of which helped her amass quite a sizeable fortune, enough to help her purchase this $4-million villa in Los Angeles. With over 4,700 square feet of space, the property features 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, a large walk-in closet, an expansive pool, and some of the most breathtaking views the city has to offer. Unlike her colorful stage persona, the décor here is more subdued—using marble and stone predominantly. She won’t be needing a moving company anytime soon, that’s for sure!
CHRISTIE BRINKLEY – $30 MILLION, LONG ISLAND, NEW YORK
No one from the ’70s does not know the name Christie Brinkley— ask anyone! She became well-recognized after modeling for Sports Illustrated swimwear. Other than being a model and cover girl, Christie is also an entrepreneur and an actress who has a hefty net worth of $100. With her good credit standing, the celebrity stunner has been living the high life.
The supermodel might be in retirement now and enjoying a much quieter life, but it’s safe to say that this $30-million property in Long Island is the fruit of many years of working in fashion and on television. The residence comes with 11 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms. From the outside alone, it reflects Christie’s lavish and elegant taste—fit for the woman who was once rumored to be Billy Joel’s “Uptown Girl”. It is surrounded by lush greenery, creating a perfect haven for her and her family. When it comes to investments, this one is certainly worth every penny.
RIHANNA – $22 MILLION, BARBADOS
Singer, actress, model, and designer—is there anything that this Barbados-beauty cannot do? Rihanna might be young, but she’s certainly working hard and living the good life. The music icon was recently included for the first time in Forbes’ list of the richest self-made woman in America because of her astounding net worth of $600 million. Rihanna is the embodiment of an empowered woman who continues to build her own empire, and many look up to her for inspiration. Aside from being a singer, she also established her own beauty brand, Fenty Beauty.
This is evident in her $22-million property in Barbados. Every bit the tropical paradise, it comes with 5 bedrooms, each overlooking the Caribbean Sea. It’s got its own direct access to the beach, docking areas for yachts, large infinity pools, spas, and a well-equipped gym. It’s the perfect balance between comfort and luxury, providing Rihanna with an escape from the grind. For added peace of mind, we hope she’s gotten ample home security, too!
JOHN TRAVOLTA – $12 MILLION, FLORIDA
John Travolta is a notable American actor, producer, singer, and dancer who was born in New Jersey. Before appearing on television, he started his career in New York theater. Later on, the celebrity was included in many notable films like Pulp Fiction, Grease, and Hairspray. Other than his supreme acting chops, this man is also known for his good looks and fit body— the makings of a Hollywood heartthrob.
So far, our list has featured some of the biggest estates—with top-notch amenities ranging from lagoon-style pools, personal spas, home theatres, expansive gardens, direct beach access, yacht docks, and walk-in closets that might rival a small boutique. All of that kind of pales in comparison to John Travolta’s home; the actor has a personal airport within his property. That includes a landing strip and a few hangars where he keeps his rides. John is a certified private pilot, after all. For $12 million, the residence also includes pools, a golf course, and an amazing flooring. All worthy investments, in our opinion.
ALEX TREBEK – $4 MILLION, LOS ANGELES
Alex Trebek is a Canadian-born American game show host who paved his way to the top of the entertainment industry. Even though he is no longer with us anymore, the TV personality’s influence and its impact still remains strong. His syndicated game show Jeopardy gained much attention— all credits to his superb hosting over the decades.
With a net worth of over $10 million, mostly gained from his longtime hosting spot on the game show Jeopardy!, it’s easy to see why the host didn’t hesitate to spend $4 million on this Mulholland Drive property. First built in 1984, the 5,554-square-foot home comes with a total of 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, a gym, a wet bar, and even a jetted tub. The interiors are decorated zebra-print pillows and gaudy red velvet chairs. We think the décor has its own unique charm and is quite a refreshing break from all the investments in modern minimalism we’ve seen on this list so far.
WILL SMITH – $42 MILLION, CALIFORNIA
We all know Will Smith is a great rapper, actor, and film producer. It only fits that he should be justly compensated for all of his contributions in entertainment. For his stellar performances and various work in Hollywood, the celebrity is now valued at $350 million. Surely, he can afford the finest amenities, furniture, and even any flooring style for his home.
As one of Hollywood’s most bankable actors, not to mention his legacy as The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, you just know Will’s home is going to be fun-filled without skipping on the usual luxuries for his big family. Initially only costing $20 million, the property has gone through so many upgrades and redesign that its total value is now estimated to be at $42 million. The residence features a basketball court, a golf course, tennis courts, a meditation lounge, and even a recording studio. No wonder Jaden’s got no plans of leaving home. The family has everything they need under the same roofing!

Their home in the Hamptons is just one in their list of other real estate properties, but sources say it is their favorite out of the lot. At $5.5 million, the property is 12.5 acres of lush greenery. With so much outdoor space, we’re sure the twins love it just as much!

The property is 2,768 square feet with 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, an old-fashioned bathtub, an antique gazebo, and vintage furniture that really imbues everything with a bit of old-world romance.

TOMMY HILFIGER – $27.5 MILLION, FLORIDA
Tommy Hilfiger is a global brand, that’s reinvented sports-inspired wear and gave us classic Americana cool. He began his interest in fashion when he was 18 years old only. Like other people, the fashion icon had to start working from the bottom before he gained widespread success. No matter what, Tommy pursued his dreams— and today, his brand is one of the leading fashion companies in the market, both local and international.
The man behind it is certainly an artist and this can be seen, not just in the designs he puts out on the runway, but also in how he has chosen to decorate his Golden Beach home. The property is 14,079 feet of pop-art inspired interiors—using a mix of geometric shapes in vibrant colors, with retro-futuristic elements thrown together that gives the place an eclectic vibe.

We know J. Lo’s come a long way and had humble roots before hitting it big when it comes to both music and film. She is an incredible singer, actress, fashion designer, TV producer, dancer, and businesswoman. The A-list Hollywood celebrity’s career already spans more than 25 years, but she still shows no sign of stopping anytime soon. If you ask us, J. Lo is really meant for the spotlight because, at the age of 5, she was already taking dancing and singing lessons in preparation for stardom.
Her success has paved the way for many opportunities—including luxuries such as her $17-million home in California. Much like the singer-actress herself, the home is elegant and glamorous, but still very cozy. The property has a total of 7 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms, as well as an entertainment room with a 30-seat capacity among other amenities. This home is actually just one of her investments when it comes to real estate, and we’re sure it won’t be her last!
JOHN RICH – $579, 975, NASHVILLE
He first came into the spotlight as a member of the country music band Lonestar. Later on, he released his solo album before rejoining with Big Kenny in 2011, re-forming Big and Rich in 2012. His current net worth is $9 million— which is already bigger than what the rest of us can afford in a lifetime. Even long before, the musical artist was already praised for being a good singer, so his earnings all came from years of hard work and practice.
Needless to say, John’s had quite the history in country music and this has enabled him to invest in some expensive properties—such as this Nashville mansion aptly called Mt. Rushmore. At 17,081 square feet, it’s got 5 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. It even has a private club that takes up 4,000 square feet of the property! We hope he has ample home security given the size of his land! We all know for sure that he can afford any luxury and lifestyle he wants.
EDDIE MURPHY – $85 MILLION, HOLLYWOOD HILLS
Eddie Murphy is a skilled American comedian, actor, singer, and writer. He rose to popularity because of the sketch comedy show, Saturday Night Live. On top of this, Eddie has been working as a stand-up comedian and was given the ranked number 10 on 100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time. Given all of his achievements, the well-loved funnyman certainly deserves to enjoy the fruits of his labor. Because of this, he has bought several properties, including a gorgeous mansion.
If you’re looking to renovate your current home and potentially increase its value at the same time, you might want to take cues from this actor-comedian. He first bought the property for $20 million but has managed to increase its value by up to $85 million. What was once a cozy family home has been changed into a personal resort; it’s got 9 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms, a spa, indoor and outdoor pools, a guest house, and is even surrounded by both hiking and riding trails. He was definitely looking ahead when he began his investments in developing this property!
BEYONCE AND JAY-Z – $45 MILLION, LOS ANGELES
Music’s power couple and the highest paid people in the industry, with a combined net worth of almost $872 million—there’s little that these two cannot afford. Beyoncé is a renowned actress and singer whose career skyrocketed when she became a member of Destiny’s Child. During the ’90s, it was one of the most beloved and best-selling girl groups of all time. Now, together with her husband, the pop diva has bought many properties that highlight her vast wealth and unparalleled social status.
They say money can’t buy happiness, but we’re certain the family was elated when they bought their $45-million mansion in Los Angeles. It might be a bit big for the family of 4, but they’ll find a way to make all 123 rooms feel cozy. The property comes with its own aquarium, swimming pools, a home theater, a bowling alley, and so much more. It’s got everything, including top-notch home security for their peace of mind.
JUSTIN BIEBER – $20 MILLION, HOLLYWOOD HILLS
Justin Bieber’s career began after he uploaded a music cover on YouTube. Fast forward to today, the 26-year-old singer has gained a massive following. Known to the public as “Beliebers,” fans of the Canadian chart-topper have helped him achieve international stardom as well as a hefty net worth to boot.
He may have an estimated net worth of over $200 million, but this is one celeb who prefers renting over buying. It may not be the smartest, but Bieber’s definitely has a bit of money to spare. For his rental, he chose a modern mansion— with floor-to-ceiling glass windows all around. Located within 6,500 square feet of land, it still offers much-needed privacy and comes with 6 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, with an ultra-sleek infinity pool. He pays $60,000 a month for a home that he could easily buy for $20 million. We wonder what his financial advisor thinks of this.
NELLY FURTADO – $1.4 MILLION, TORONTO
With her gorgeous voice and eclectic sound, Nelly Furtado conquered the airwaves and the charts during her peak. She became one of the successful Canadian musicians in history. This empowered lady has sold over ten million records and also won different awards that have given merit to her amazing voice. In well-deserved wins, the singer was able to bag a BRIT Award, Grammy Award, Billboard Music Award, Latin Grammy Award, and ten Junos over the course of her career.
Now that she’s taking things a little slower and focusing on other activities such as hosting, she’s still bringing in more than enough money to live in comfort and luxury. No wonder she’s decided on this $1.4 million home in Toronto. The two-story home is beautiful and reflects the singer’s unique taste. It may not be as grand as the other homes on our list, but it certainly gives off a feeling of coziness—a true family home. That’s some excellent money management on her part!
TOM SELLECK – UNDISCLOSED AMOUNT, LOS ANGELES
Tom Selleck starred in different movies, and many are amazed by how he managed to bring all his characters to life. What’s even more amazing is that Tom has accomplished several other feats in his prime. The celebrated actor is also a veteran of the California Army National Guard, an endorser for National Review advertisements magazine, and a spokesperson for the National Rifle Association (NRA).
When people think of Tom Selleck, he is immediately associated with masculinity. Outside of the hit TV show, however, he lives a quieter life, but still retains his brand of old-fashioned masculinity. His 1,800-square-foot property in Los Angeles is adorned with Western-inspired décor, leather furniture, walnut cabinets, and deep-colored wood panels. It does have a Welsh touch to it and that’s thanks to Jillie Mack, who is the actor’s wife. Is this a case of art imitating life? Perhaps not. It’s probably thanks to Magnum, P.I. that Tom did not go into bankruptcy while building his dream home.
CHER – $45 MILLION, MALIBU
Cher, popularly known as the Goddess of Pop, is 74 years old but still flaunting her beauty and excellent talent. She seems to love her work so much that she just can’t retire from Hollywood. Even today, she remains to be one of the most influential entertainment figures who continue to earn a lot long after her heyday.
It’s a palatial residence fit for a queen. Cher’s home in Malibu is an expansive 16,000 square feet of absolute luxury—you’ll find a variety of different collectibles and souvenirs which she’s bought during her travels. From Mexican fireplaces to Moroccan rugs, it’s a museum unto itself; one that screams opulence at the same time. This isn’t too surprising given the singer’s eclectic yet refined taste, and with millions of dollars in her bank account, she can afford just about everything her heart desires. This isn’t a retirement home, however! There are no signs of slowing down for this diva and we’re sure, she’s got more investments in mind.
KATE HUDSON – $5.3 MILLION, PACIFIC PALISADES
We bet there is no one here on this planet that does not know Kate Hudson. She is a popular actress, fashion designer, and now, an author. Her exceptional acting skills were always a magnet for different accolades. In recent years, however, Kate has been exploring other creative means. The talented actress now has a fitness brand to boast, and with the money from her business ventures, she sure can invest in a quality home.
Kate bought this Pacific Palisades mansion with Matt Bellamy back in 2011 for the sum of $5.3 million. The couple eventually parted ways in 2014, leaving the property to her. The home itself is magnificent—a Tudor mansion, which is architecturally unique given its location. It’s got Kate’s signature casual bohemian flair to it as well; a mix of classic and shabby chic that imbues the residence with warmth and coziness. It’s got a lovely garden and is nestled between lush greenery, providing both privacy and relaxing views. We love it, but if we had financial advisors, they would say: it’s way out of our budget.
KALEY CUOCO – $4.2 MILLION, CALIFORNIA
With about $51 million in the bank, we’re not too surprised that Kaley decided to splurge on such a luxurious property. She’s currently one of the highest-paid actresses on television, after all. With her hard work, dedication, and devotion to acting, she deserves all the goodness that the world can offer. This residence was once owned by Khloe Kardashian and features plenty of amenities that make it a great family home. This includes 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, an outdoor living area, a pool, and a gourmet kitchen.
It covers 5,000 square feet of the property, and from the outside, it looks every bit a Spanish dream home. Perfect for the location it is in. We’re glad her investment planning is paying off! Kaley, nowadays, is a busy woman who continues to pursue her acting career along with her dream of being a great producer. In fact, last 2014, she was given a well-deserved star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
KIMORA LEE SIMMONS – ESTIMATED $25 MILLION, BEVERLY PARK
As a fashion model, Kimora Lee Simmons always makes sure to stay young and take care of her body. No doubt that her beauty still shines and looks youthful, even at the age of 45! Kimora and her partner currently live in this opulent $25-million mansion located in Beverly Park. The property provides them with over 20,000 square feet of land, whilst the house has 7 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms in total.
The former model’s refined taste is undeniable and this is most apparent in the home-décor and architecture, particularly the twin-curved staircases that make the residence feel even grander. Amenities include a spa, a library, a theater, a pool, a wet bar, a sunken tennis court, and a modern kitchen. We’re sure every detail on this residence was carefully decided on, including choosing their home security. If you’re worried about the cost of her living expenses, then don’t fret because the celebrity is set for life, given her accumulated earnings over the years.
MARK ZUCKERBERG – $7 MILLION, PALO ALTO
Many remain to be in awe of Mark Zuckerberg, the Facebook co-founder, for being a simple man. He does not wear extravagant clothes, and he is a down to earth person who spends his fortune helping people in need. With his kindness and intelligence, the tech magnate undoubtedly deserves only the best.
It goes without saying that his home is definitely top-of-the-line. The Zuckerberg home was first purchased back in 2011 and cost around $ 7 million at the time. However, the value of this property has surely increased since, given the number of renovations the Facebook founder has done to the place. In fact, he has since bought the four other neighboring houses as well. With over 17,000 square feet and lush greens all around, it’s really a relaxing place to be in. The mansion is 5,000 square feet of relaxed elegance and truly looks like a cozy family home. Given he’s still making additions and renovations, this family won’t be calling a moving company anytime soon!
JOHN CENA – $7 MILLION, FLORIDA
We can safely say that John Cena is a WWE legend. He has won the championship title 15 times in his 20-year career. For at least once in our life, we have admired him and other wrestlers for their prowess in the ring. From being one of the best combatants, Cena also pursued acting and began to thrive in this field. Although he is now in his forties, the pro-wrestler turned actor still looks young because of his healthy lifestyle and regular exercise.
Currently, he is the face of WWE, and with that comes a pretty sweet paycheck. That’s not counting all the other work he does on the side, of course, which has brought his net worth up to $55 million! With his savings, he has invested in a waterfront property in Florida. The mansion comes with indoor and outdoor pools, a massive garage, and even a cigar room for the gents. Despite the price, he probably didn’t need home loans for this one.
MARSHAWN LYNCH – $3.3 MILLION, BAY AREA
Did you know that Marshawn Lynch was called “The Money” way back in college? Countless people believed that he will achieve great success in playing football. Although his major in college was social welfare, the determined athlete still focused on playing football— and look at where it got him now. Following his true calling gave him a better income source, which he decided to save and invest in properties.
The Oakland Rangers running back went all in for this Richmond property. Lynch said that this gorgeous 7,000-square-foot residence is worth every penny. For $3.3 million, it comes with eco-friendly solar panels—a unique feature of the home. The floor-to-ceiling windows offer plenty of natural lighting and views of the sea, which is no more than a stone’s throw away from the property. It’s got 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, as well as a large dock. It’s a modern stunner, sleek and cozy – making it a perfect fit for the athlete. Let’s hope he invested in home security as well!
JULIA ROBERTS – $10 MILLION, MALIBU
Julia Roberts is definitely the real-life Pretty Woman. She is an award-winning actress and was named the highest-paid actress during the 1990s. The gorgeous actress proved talents to everyone when she achieved several acclaims from notable award-giving bodies, and her films were always blockbuster hits. People Magazine also recognized her beauty and she set the record of being the most beautiful woman for five times.
The actress is known for being environmentally-friendly and is a staunch supporter of the green movement. Whilst $10 million doesn’t seem to fit into that picture, do know that most of the money was spent on making sure the home is as eco-friendly as possible. What does that mean? Well, aside from getting solar panels installed, she’s also made sure that everything is up to the green standard. Outdoors, the main feature would be the boat dock—allowing her to travel around. The house was certainly designed thoughtfully, and her investments into it also help the environment.
VON MILLER – $8 MILLION, CHERRY HILLS, DENVER
One look at the NFL-athlete’s home says it all: masculine elegance. In case you didn’t know, Von Miller is considered a part of the great defenders in the football league. He even set a record of being an eight-time Pro Bowl selection. When the Broncos defeated the Carolina Panthers, the star athlete was then named Super Bowl MVP of the game.
Given how many Miller achieved during his glory days, it is only fitting that he invested it in a perfect home. It’s all dark-wood and stone, lending the residence some warmth and coziness. The home itself comes with 7 suites and 6 bathrooms, an expansive walk-in closet that also serves as the style wardrobe for Von, a wine cellar, and a beautiful outdoor pool where he can relax in. The property is surrounded by plants, with a thriving garden and even a man-made pond built right at the center. You can tell how much thought was placed when designing every detail. We hope he’s invested in home insurance to protect it as well!
CHARLIZE THERON – $3.8 MILLION, HOLLYWOOD HILLS
One of the highest-paid actresses of her time is the lovely Charlize Theron. Her looks are astonishing and will captivate anyone’s eyes immediately. Besides being beautiful, Charlize never failed to act naturally and do her best in front of the camera. As a result, the actress has become a multi-awarded and sought-after talent in the industry. From all of her earnings in acting, she bought beneficial investment properties.
Her home might be on the market, but Charlize Theron certainly left her mark on the California property. First bought for $3.6 million, it comes with a library and a massive outdoor pool—perfect for the South African actress who is known for her love of the outdoors. The interiors are all done in white, reflecting natural lighting and giving the space a certain airiness; it’s casual yet sophisticated at the same time, much like Charlize herself. It is currently on sale for $3.8 million, and we would definitely sign on it, but we would likely end up in bankruptcy if we do so.
JESSICA BIEL – $20.2 MILLION, NEW YORK
Jessica Biel is an illustrious actress, model, and singer, who began her Hollywood journey by being a vocalist in different musical productions. She also tried to venture out her luck on acting and later on become a successful actress. This exceptional woman has reaped many awards, and today, she is working as a producer, which has always been one of her greatest aspirations.
Understandably, property in NYC tends to be very expensive so don’t be too surprised to find that this penthouse in Tribeca costs more than an entire home in Los Angeles. That said, it is no ordinary apartment! The home covers 5,400 square feet and is opulent down to the last bit of décor. Located right in the heart of the city, it has 4 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, an indoor swimming pool, an indoor Turkish bath, and an entertainment area on the rooftop.

Covering 1,400 square feet, it comes with 2 bedrooms and facilities that enable her to enjoy her days off to the fullest.
HARRY STYLES – $8 MILLION, HOLLYWOOD HILLS
Among the renowned English singer, actor, and songwriters is Mr. Harry Styles. As of today, his net worth is $80 million, and he has reeled in a huge fanbase all over the world. He’s become a success despite going solo and leaving the globally-popular group, One Direction. Something that very few singers have managed to, once they decide to carve a path outside of what the fans are used to.
Harry is one of the few people who is not afraid to venture out and grow on their own without sticking to being a band member. All that hard work is paying off, however, and he has even purchased an $8-million home back in 2017. It comes with a home cinema, an outdoor pool, and plenty of other luxuries— but he put it on the market soon after where it stayed for 2 years before getting picked up. His investments on the home ended with him losing a couple million on the sale.
NICK NOLTE – $6 MILLION, MALIBU

This property has Gwen written all over it—with her signature black and white motif weaving its way into the home’s décor. It is tastefully done, however, and we didn’t expect anything less from the stylish vocalist. She used to share the property with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale, but it ended up in her hands after their divorce. Despite it being bittersweet, we’re sure she’s happy about the settlement—the property is gorgeous, after all. With a large dining area, a tennis court, and a beautiful infinity pool to relax in. The black and white flooring just adds enough quirk to keep it from being boring.

With his huge success, he bought several properties. In particular, this property may have previously belonged to Parker Posey, but Alexander has made it completely his own. This $2.3-million property in New York has gorgeous interiors—contemporary architecture with an old-school flair. Everything is done up in a lighter palette, lending the space a certain lightness that most modern and minimalist homes tend to lack. The interiors are far from being drab and have been tastefully decorated, likely following the actor’s personal preferences. For the size of the residence, the price might be a bit steep, but we’re sure the views had the actor spellbound. It’s certainly worth the investment money he put into it.

ANNA FARIS – $4.9 MILLION, CALIFORNIA
Comedic characters in horror-parody movies bring a degree of quirky humor, just like the film character that Anna Faris portrayed in the film series Scary Movie as Cindy Campbell. Remarkably, that movie gave Anna’s career a boost. She landed more roles both in film and television. However, in 2015, she transitioned to another media platform and launched her first podcast episode—Unqualified. All her hard work paid off, and she bought a new house with her hard-earned money in 2018.

The house is located in Palisades, California, priced at $4.9 million with spread on 4,289 square feet. It features a Tesla charger in the two-car garage.

However, she gained prominence in 2014 after she signed with IMG Models and debuted at the New York Fashion Week, representing the Spanish clothing brand Desigual. From there, the rest is history.

BELLA THORNE – $2.01 MILLION, CALIFORNIA

Given her long and successful career, her net worth reached a whopping $360 million—not bad for investment money.
Cher bought several properties through the years. One of those is a mansion in Malibu, which she purchased in the early 1990s for $1.5 million.
