It is surrounded by nature and is close to a state park! Formerly owned by Bobby Vinton, he probably didn’t need to get a loan to acquire this lush residence.

When it comes to his home, however, it’s all about the family. Fans know just how close the Smiths are so seeing Will put investments towards a sizable property that’s big enough for his brood isn’t at all surprising.

When it comes to expensive homes, athletes tend to dominate the lists as well. After all, they can easily earn millions every season and that’s aside from any endorsement money they might earn.
The same goes for one of our favorite tennis players. A good example would be Novak’s ultra-sleek 4,140-square-foot property in Miami. Not only is it in a prime spot in the city, but it also has clear ocean views from its terrace. Novak’s need for serenity is well-provided for as well. He need not leave home because everything is under one roofing: pools, a spa, a gym, and even an outdoor Fugo bar!

He might not have needed a money loan to have this place renovated and updated over the years to make it his own, given his vast wealth. However, until today, details about this property remain under lock and key. Visitors who want to see the place need to be invited. If they luckily get in, it is prohibited to take photos inside. Even Ronald Reagan himself was not allowed to see the place.

She also gave a tour of her home showing off her antique furniture and gorgeously unmatched kitchen. The average home in her neighborhood costs around $2.5 Million, so we can be sure Betty’s is worth much more!
MARK ZUCKERBERG – $7 MILLION

Mark Zuckerberg was born on May 14, 1984. He has shown extraordinary programming talent during his middle school period. The CEO and his family have weathered quite a number of controversies in recent years, but we cannot deny that they are living in utmost comfort and luxury.
Just take their $7-million home in Palo Alto for example. Mark renovated the property before going ahead and purchasing the neighboring houses—a total of 4 other properties! Their land spans a total of 17,000 square feet, providing more than enough space and probably privacy. With his net worth, even if he opted to expand his property further, he wouldn’t even need personal loans to get it done. The man has enough cash to buy the neighborhood if he wanted to!
CHER – $45 MILLION
Do you remember Cher? Cher, born on May 20, 1946, was in an unbeaten position as the “goddess of pop” during his 60-year career. From music to movies, Cher continues to break new styles and constantly refresh the audience’s perception of popularity. With a career as successful as hers, one that spans decades and transcends trends, you can be certain that she’s made more than enough investment money to shell out for luxuries.
One of those personal indulgences includes her $45-million Malibu mansion—which looks more like a palace if you ask us. It is decorated with artifacts from all over the world, including gorgeous Moroccan rugs and an imported Mexican fireplace. If she does plan on retiring soon, this will serve as the perfect sanctuary for the singer. Though, we can’t imagine Hollywood without Cher—so let’s hope she doesn’t retire soon.
CELINE DION – $28 MILLION
Have you heard Celine Dion’s song? Have you ever been moved to tears when you hear these songs in the dead of night? Celine Dion’s voice is regarded as one of the most influential voices in pop music. When it comes to doing things at a grand scale, Celine Dion certainly does it right.
Just take the waterpark mansion she and late husband, René Angélil, purchased together. It comes with 13 bedrooms and panoramic views of the ocean. The décor is Bahamian-inspired, lending a relaxing resort vibe to the whole place. But the real deal-clinchers here would have to be the waterslides, the man-made river, and its waterpark-sized pools. This property has since changed hands, so we wonder—did their investment pay off? She originally listed it on the market for $72 million and eventually sold it for $28 million.
HALLE BERRY – $3.8 MILLION
Born on August 14, 1966, Halle Berry started his career in a beauty contest. With her beautiful face and figure, she won the runner-up in the Miss America pageant. In 1986, Halle Berry won sixth place in the Miss World Contest. Halle Berry began to show strong will in acting in 1989 and shined in the 1992 comedy Boomerang.
This is one property that requires extra home security systems. Just last year, someone tried to fraudulently sell off the $3.8 Hollywood Hills mansion formerly owned by the actress. He was spotted trespassing and ran off after the house’s caretakers tried to approach him. Fortunately for the actress, this scam was nipped right in the bud and that she no longer lives in it. It was built in 1935, and it comes with 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, as well as an outdoor pool with a spacious lounging area. The property covers 4,889 square feet and features Mediterranean-inspired architecture. Before Halle, this residence once belonged to another actor, Frankie Muniz.
JANET JACKSON – $2.8 MILLION
If you want to understand the trend of popular music, you might as well pay attention to Janet Jackson. Since Janet Jackson was active in the music scene in 1973, she has always been an indicator of popular culture. Janet Jackson made a significant investment when she bought a unit on the Trump International Hotel and Tower in 1998 for $2.8 million. After she purchased this property, she put her Midtown pied-a-terre for rent for $35,000 a month, joining in the slew of celebrities who had their homes leased.
Meanwhile, the 54-year-old star’s condo unit had a lot to boast. It featured 2,093 square feet of living space with three beds and a 28 feet long, L-shaped living and dining room. It had floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the property that gave it natural lighting, which also gave her a good view of Fifth Avenue and Central Park South. Although its kitchen was relatively small, it was well-equipped with all the things needed to prepare a decent meal.
DIANA ROSS – $39.5 MILLION
Diana Ross is definitely a legendary actress who cannot be forgotten. Diana Ross was born in Detroit on March 26, 1944.

With a net worth of $250 million, we can say she owns many properties and this includes her primary residence in Greenwich, Connecticut. The 12,562-square-foot waterfront mansion was actually put on sale in 2007 for $39.5 million. But until now, the house is still unsold. Ross bought this French-style mansion from actor Frank Gorshin. It boasts 11 bedrooms, 10 baths, a spiral staircase, a family room, a wine cellar, a bowling alley, a swimming pool, a spa, and many more!

His portfolio of performances includes being an opera singer, conductor, and arts administrator. His career scope encompasses the whole of Western Europe, making him a staple figure in the European opera scene.
Although not much is known about his private home life, we know that he owns a vast property in Acapulco, Mexico, which he shares with his family. In a documentary video published twelve years ago, the property can be seen to have its own tennis court and a gorgeous pool overlooking the ocean. However, the exact value of this tropical paradise is undisclosed, but we’re sure that it has seen some renovations with the help of some good home finance investments.
RIHANNA – $22 MILLION
On February 20, 1988, Rihanna was born in St. Michael, Barbados. As a female singer with more than 250 million records sold worldwide, Rihanna deserves to be one of the best-selling artists of all time. From humble roots, Rihanna has managed to build herself an empire. From music to fashion, to fragrances, to even publishing—it seems the singer can do it all and be successful at the same time.
All of that means she has very little time for rest, so whenever she wants a bit of escape, Rihanna doesn’t have to look far from home. Her mansion in Barbados is her own personal sanctuary. The property overlooks the beautiful Caribbean Sea and has 5 bedrooms, direct beach access, infinity pools, a gym, a spa, and even a yacht dock. Needless to say, it’s worth every investment she’s made.

He is Amazon’s head honcho and currently one of the richest men in the world, but did you know that Jeff Bezos lives in a particularly humble home?
The investor, entrepreneur, and known philanthropist first bought his mansion for $13 million—hardly making a dent to his credit in the process. In buying the property, however, he was able to extend his residence by combining both homes. How? He already owns the house next door. That’s some excellent planning on his part and given his net worth? It was an easy one to execute as well, that’s for sure.
PRISCILLA PRESLEY – $30 MILLION
Although many Hollywood stars run their own brands or invest, there are really few stars who can achieve great commercial success like Priscilla Presley. Elvis and Priscilla Presley’s former home is now up on the market for a whopping $30 million. If you think this is such a huge amount for an investment, just consider that you are buying a piece of Hollywood history.
Here’s where the King of Rock and Roll and his beautiful wife used to live. This is also the property the ex-couple first bought after they got married in 1967. The Beverly Hills mansion is undeniably stunning, located on the street known for being the “Billionaire’s Row.” It has 5,400 square feet of living space, sprawling on 1.18 acres of land. As the home of a king, you can expect it to have the best and unique features, like a lot of outdoor space, a pool, a spa, and everything about the old Hollywood glamour you can imagine.
ELTON JOHN – $32.6 MILLION
Elton John was born on March 25, 1947. When he was young, his family was very generous. His father was a flying lieutenant of the Royal Air Force.

Located in the exclusive 90210 zip code, his home boasts ten beds, 22 baths, and 24,260 square feet living space.

It had the original price of $63 million in 2011, but the iconic singer managed to buy it at a lower rate of $32.6 million in 2015.
TOM SELLECK – $5 MILLION
Tom Selleck, born on January 29, 1945, is a famous American actor and film producer. Tom Selleck first appeared in a TV series in The Dating Game, and soon after he appeared in a Pepsi commercial. From 1967 to 1973, Tom Selleck served in the army. Tom Selleck likes guns and outdoor sports. These hobbies have helped him shape the role of a cowboy. Tom Selleck has got it all: a loving wife, beautiful kids, and this incredible property.
The 75-year-old actor bought this Spanish colonial-style home in 1988 for $5 million. It was reportedly built back in the 1930s and until this day, it houses more than 1,500 native trees and a working avocado farm which he maintains himself. The ranch has eight bedrooms, a swimming pool, a three-hole putting course, a tennis court, stables, and more. The 65-acre ranch is one of Selleck’s most loved investments. In an interview with People magazine, he said, “My relationships and my ranch keep me sane.”
CAMERON DIAZ – $4.25 MILLION
Cameron Diaz deserves to be one of America’s best-selling actors. In 2013, she was voted as one of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood, the United States over the age of 40. Cameron Diaz, who was still in high school, was dug to sign a model contract. At the age of 21, she shot with Jim Carry in The Mask. Now that Cameron’s a mother, it is completely understandable for her to want all the privacy in the world—hence her semi-retirement from the industry.
That doesn’t mean she’s going to go bankrupt though! Her net worth, coupled with that of her husband’s, is certainly more than enough to allow their small family to live comfortably for years to come. The Beverly Hills mansion they live in had plenty of renovations prior to her giving birth. Aside from babyproofing, they probably also amped up the security. After all, one can never be too careful, especially now that they have a newborn!
FLOYD MAYWEATHER – $25 MILLION
Floyd Mayweather mainly participated in the competition from 1996 to 2015 and then participated in a singles comeback in 2017. During his career, he mainly won 15 world championships. Floyd Mayweather is one who likes to live grand and splurge on expensive things. If you’re a guy who managed to defeat renowned boxers like Conor McGregor and Manny Pacquiao, not to mention winning huge bucks from it, you will definitely treat yourself with luxuries – like this $25 million home in Los Angeles.
Surely, this doesn’t leave a dent in Mayweather’s bank account. Aside from its huge price, it also comes with gigantic features, such as a wine rack that can fit 225 bottles, protected by several glass doors. The house also features a massive kitchen and an elegant dining room, accentuated with huge windows and a floor-to-ceiling mirror to give it natural lighting. While Floyd has all the funds to pay for his probably massive electricity bill, he can definitely save on lights.
PRINCE HARRY AND MEGHAN MARKLE – $14 MILLION
Compared to Prince Harry, who had lived under public attention since he was a child, the situation of Meghan Markle made the public more curious. Meghan Markle, born in Los Angeles, California, the USA in 1981, was an actress. Her blogs on food, fashion, travel, and inspirational women have given her a large number of fans. Prince Harry may have decided to leave his royal days behind, but that doesn’t mean he’s about to start slumming it out.
Together with Meghan and their child, the new family is moving into a palatial home in Vancouver Island. The neighborhood they’re moving into provides ample privacy, allowing both to start anew and live a more normal life. The property might appear foreboding from the outside, but it comes with a lot of cozy creature comforts. There’s a pizza oven, a wine tasting room, a game room, and is furnished with an imported French fireplace. All worthy investments for the former royals, we think.
BRITNEY SPEARS – $9 MILLION
As a pop music princess, Britney Spears has sold more than 100 million records worldwide, including 70 million records sold in the United States alone. Forbes reported that Britney Spears was the highest-paid female musician in 2002 and 2012. She may be in the spotlight less these days, but that doesn’t mean Britney has stopped making money.
With countless chart-toppers that are still well-loved, even by today’s younger generation, those royalties will keep on coming. Of course, that’s aside from the fact that she’s also made her fortune through various business ventures—from fragrances to clothing, this savvy businesswoman has tried it all. No wonder she makes more than $20 million annually! Her home in California reflects the singer’s lavish tastes. From a media-gaming room to outdoor pools—there’s plenty to see and do. It really is a wise investment on her part.

It is a two-story mansion built-in 2002, featuring some great amenities, like seven fireplaces, a swimming pool, a tennis court, and its own private dock on the nearby lake. The house boasts seven bedrooms, eight and a half baths, and a sizeable 1,369-square-foot basement. In total, it has 11,400 square feet living space.

The first professional event Serena Williams participated in was The Tournoi de Québec in 1995, but at that time, her skills were still immature. When the time came to 1998, Serena Williams’ talent and training results began to show. Serena Williams, her husband, Alexis Ohanian, and her daughter, Olympia, are mostly spending their time together at her Palm Beach Garden home in Florida.
The luxury home boasts 7,323 square feet of living space with clay-tile roofing and a cabana pool. As she co-owns this house with her sister, Venus Williams, also known as a great tennis player, it is no surprise that the home features a tennis court. The two have owned this property for more than two decades. Serene bought this house for $525,000 in 1998. After two years, she has built her dream house here, which has undoubtedly increased its value.

It also had Brazilian cherry flooring all throughout the house, which was said to be a significant change from her simple roots on Chicago’s South Side.
MATT LAUER – $36.5 MILLION
The Today’s Show former co-host Matt Lauer definitely did not shy away from the massive price tag of his North Haven home when he purchased it back in 2016. The jaw-dropping property was once home to actor Richard Gere and was put on the market for a staggering $36.5 million and was later found by its new owner, Matt Lauer.
The property has several luxury features that make its asking price easier to fathom. For one, the property (also known as the Strongheart Manor) is enclosed within a 6.3 acres wide land with 14,000 square feet worth of living space and was built in 1902. This 12 bedroom, 12 bath home also features two separate guest houses, a gorgeous pool, a top-notch home security system, and its very own deepwater dock with a mini-island. If that’s not living like a celebrity, I don’t know what is.
STEVE HARVEY – $15 MILLION
63-year-old Steve Harvey is not only a successful comedian and TV host. Beginning in 2017, Steve Harvey founded Steve Harvey Global, and since then began his business expansion. Steve Harvey shelled out a whopping $15 million to buy Tyler Perry’s mansion in Atlanta this May 2020. The media mogul’s former house is definitely a sprawling one with its 34,688 square feet of living space.
With its behemoth size, it is only befitting that it also has lavish features. It has 17 acres of “perfectly manicured grounds,” which unquestionably comes with a hefty mortgage. It has a 70,000-gallon infinity-edge pool, several guests’ and caretakers’ rooms, a spa, a high-tech security apparatus, and a lot more. Aside from this, Harvey has several properties in different states, like California, Chicago, Georgia, and Texas. However, compared to these four, his new home in Atlanta is a sure-fire stunner.
O.J. SIMPSON – $1.8 MILLION
Former NFL superstar O.J. Simpson is now living humbly in his $1.8 million Las Vegas home. Although it is a far cry from his former mansion, this one still has many features that can be bragged. He may be living solo, so the 5,000 square feet living space that the house has is more than enough for the ex-football player. It also has a mini-golf course so that he will never get bored when he has nothing to do. He can even hone his golfing talent here. Everything in this cozy house looks so perfect.
Fortunately, Simpson still has some money left from former investments, despite all the financial turmoil he has encountered. He is now living off from his NFL and Screen Actors Guild pension, thanks to his former work. Evidently, he has everything he needs to last a lifetime.

Although she is only 47 years old now, her screen career has lasted from 1980 to the present, a total of 40 years. With a successful career under her belt, it’s only fitting that Milano splurges on a lavish California mansion with the help of proper home finance.
The actress currently resides in a $1.5 million home situated in Bell Canyon, California. The property has some of the finest amenities, including an expansive lot complete with its very own equestrian facility. Not a lot of celebs can put that on their home resume.

Diane Sawyer’s former house in New York will take you to France’s suburb without leaving the comfort of your own home. If there is something that the 74-year-old star’s abode has something to boast off, it is its stone walls and majestic view of the Atlantic Ocean. Initially built in 1925, the house is still carrying its original features, making it look like a classic country home, complete with an old wooden fence.

On it, she was able to fully showcase how much attention was given to every piece displayed in her home – from the old-fashioned bathtub, the vintage pieces, and the gazebo to her choice of flooring.
JESSICA ALBA – $9.95 MILLION
Jessica Alba was born on April 28, 1981, in Pomona, California, USA. Jessica Alba started her career as an actress in 1994. She appeared in the movie Camp Nowhere. In 2000, she became famous for her role in the TV series Dark Angel. We may not see her in movies as much as we used to, but the actress is definitely not one to spend her days lazing about.
Did you know that she owns a very successful business? No wonder her reported net worth is around $200 million! Fans of Jessica know that she isn’t one to splurge, however, so purchasing a $10-million mansion must have taken plenty of thought. From what we can see, the 8,829-square-foot residence is well-worth it and her investment planning has certainly paid off. It makes for a lovely family home, tucked away on the hillside allowing ample privacy.
SCARLETT JOHANSSON – $3.8 MILLION
Scarlett Johansson was born in New York on November 22, 1984. Scarlett Johansson showed strong enthusiasm for acting very early, and her performance started on the Broadway stage. In 2003, Scarlett Johansson successfully transformed from a teenage role to an adult role through the film Lost in Translation. Scarlett’s the type of actress who can easily transform according to the role she’s given.
So it comes as no surprise that she’s also one of Hollywood’s highest-paid and one of the most in-demand from this generation of talents. With her role in the Avengers movies alone, Scarlett was able to earn millions—giving her more than enough extra for personal investments. With everything working in her favor, the actress took the plunge and bought a $3.8-million home in Los Feliz. It comes with a private spa, romantic views, and a pool house where she can entertain her guests.
JENNIFER LOPEZ – $17 MILLION
On July 24, 1969, Jennifer Lopez was born in New York. In the last year of high school, Jennifer Lopez starred in a small-cost movie My Little Girl. Jennifer Lopez’s film and television dreams were not supported by her parents at first, but she insisted on moving out of her parents’ residence and acting as a dancer. Jennifer might remind us all that she’s still Jenny from The Block, but when it comes to her living space there’s certainly been plenty of changes.
Jennifer Lopez’s current home is a $17-million property located in sunny California with aesthetics that mirror her own glamorous style. Did you know she did the decoration and styling herself? The property comes with a total of seven bedrooms and thirteen bathrooms. It even has its own entertainment room, capable of seating 30 people! We’re sure she’s placed emphasis on home security as well—after all, the safety of her kids is a priority.

The property’s owner, a real estate agent, reportedly bought the house in 2004 for only $750,000. But as he made it his significant investment, he had it renovated and finally completed in 2006. The house was said to be on the market for $2.589 million, a dramatic increase from his original purchase. The home boasts five and four and a half large bonus room with its own theatre, gym, office, living room, family room, five fireplaces, and a gourmet kitchen.

Miley Cyrus was born in 1992. Miley Cyrus, 28, has gained a large number of fans because of his extremely rich musical style. Her music style includes pop music, country music and hip-hop music.

A girl who works hard and plays hard, the singer has quite the real estate portfolio to her name. Miley’s most recent purchase is a home in Malibu with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms that cost her $2.5 million.

Located near the old home she used to share with Liam, this new one is surrounded by lush greens and even comes with heated flooring.
TOBEY MAGUIRE – $6.9 MILLION
You must have never imagined that 45-year-old Tobey Maguire didn’t even dream of being an actor at first. During his childhood, Tobey Maguire’s dream was to be a chef. In 1989, Tobey Maguire first appeared on the TV screen and showed great talent in the movie The Wizard. People may poke fun at him for experiencing a career decline after an all-time high as Spiderman, but Tobey is certainly far from bankruptcy. We may see him less on screen, but he has been working behind the scenes, primarily as a film producer.
Unconvinced? Well, just take a look at his $6.9-million Brentwood property. The 4-bedroom property features plenty of open spaces and natural light. It also comes with a fireplace, located centrally between the home’s sitting areas. The glass doors not only frame the nature outside, but they also lead to an outdoor patio – understated elegance that’s fit for this low-key actor.

Bruce Springsteen had sold his 6,000-square-foot Holmdel, New Jersey, house for $3.299 million.
It was a 19-the century farmhouse where he wrote and rehearsed much of his songs from his fifth album, The River. He had lived here for five years. At the time, he was still recording the said album and another one, The Heart of Darkness. Bruce used to have this house for rent for $5,000 a month.

When it comes to investment planning, Keith and Nicole have certainly made some smart choices.
They have a number of properties across the United States, as well as a farm located near Sydney. For their home base, they have a mansion in Beverly Hills that’s worth a cool $4.7 million. Given its size and amenities, it’s not a bad price at all! Aside from boasting an eye-catching architecture, it also comes with a private library—perfect for the couple and their children, allowing them to spend some time together while learning different topics.

So, where do tech moguls go for retirement? In his case, Terry goes home to his mansion in Malibu. Costing $50 million, this gorgeous residence is a mere 40 feet away from the blue Pacific Ocean. Its picture windows perfectly frame the impressive view, adding to the home’s subdued luxury. This, alone, is well worth the investment he put into the home.
TOM BRADY AND GISELE BUNDCHEN – $20 MILLION
Many people think that Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback of all time. Tom Brady has indeed brought many rugby miracles in his long career. Tom Brady And Gisele Bundchen announced their marriage in 2009. Gisele Bundchen is also very well-known. She has always been one of the world’s highest-paid supermodels. We’ve all seen our fair share of power couples, but rarely do they work with the same chemistry as Tom and Brady.
These two have weathered quite a number of struggles, both personally and career-wise, and yet they remain at the top of their fields. Their combined investment money is more than enough to purchase their 22,000-square-foot mansion in California. The price tag on this? $20 million. It isn’t as indulgent as it looks, however. Gisele made sure that the home is as sustainable and eco-friendly as possible, including green solutions such as the use of solar panels and gray-water irrigation.
TOMMY HILFIGER – $27.5 MILLION
Tommy Hilfiger was very successful in letting the world know his name. In the 1980s, Tommy Hilfiger created his own menswear collection of the same name. Later, the company gradually expanded into womenswear and other directions. When it comes to fashion, Tommy knows best. He is beloved in the industry for his elegant yet fun American designs that often feature bright pops of color. This rings true for the way he has styled his home as well—it is even compared by some to a work of art.
His residence echoes the same pops of color coupled with modern retro furnishings. The home is a balance between being minimal without skipping out on the vivid color palette. His investments aren’t just in the interior décor, however. The 14,079-square-foot property comes with entertainment rooms, a gym, and enough space for parties.
EDDIE MURPHY – $85 MILLION
Eddie Murphy was born in Brooklyn, New York on April 3, 1961. In 1976, Eddie Murphy began acting in the Youth Center. He was very interested in becoming a comedian and acting, which was the starting point of his career. Eddie Murphy first bought their family home for around $20 million—quite the bargain considering the property’s size and prime location.
Since they have lived in it, though, the family has done plenty of renovations and additions—further raising the value of their home to $85 million! So, what does an $85-million place look like? From a family home, they were able to transform the residence into their very own resort. Their investments included increasing the total number of rooms – 32 in total, including 9 bedrooms and bathrooms and adding features such as pools, spas, and hiking trails.
JOHN RICH – $579,975
On January 7, 1974, John Rich was born in Dixon, Tennessee, USA. This country sensation is best known for being part of the band Lonestar, before eventually establishing a successful solo career for himself. Throughout his career, John Rich has collaborated with other artists, including Big Kenny.
His current home may not be as expensive as the others, but it certainly rivals all the others with its sheer size alone. It’s ‘go big or go home’ for John. His Nashville mansion comes with 10 bathrooms and 5 bedrooms, an elevator, and a 4,000-square-foot private club. All of that set within 17,081 square feet of land. With his net worth, however, purchasing this likely didn’t even dent his credit. In 2008, John Rich and Joan announced their marriage. They will live happily in this house.
JESSICA BIEL – $20.2 MILLION
On March 3, 1982, Jessica Biel was born in Erie, St. Louis County, Minnesota, USA. She has French, German, Indian and Choctaw descent at the same time. Jessica Biel used to be a model and later appeared in many movies. Together with her husband, Justin Timberlake, and their son, Jessica lives in a modern NYC penthouse located in Tribeca. This investment cost them a cool $20.2 million and is a prime real estate in the area. Given how expensive properties can be in the city, this hefty amount is still a steal.
Their home is of a distinct style to the area, red-bricked, and highly exclusive. With 4 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, they’ll never feel claustrophobic despite living in a building. The rooftop alone offers stunning views and is landscaped to perfection—it’s like having their own garden right in the middle of the busy city.
CLINT EASTWOOD – $5 MILLION
The 90-year-old Clint Eastwood is undoubtedly a legend in the film industry. His film works are extremely rich, and the films directed by Clint Eastwood have won several Oscars for Best Film. In the 1960s, Clint Eastwood participated in a series of western-themed movies. Since then, his images of cowboys and tough guys have become popular. Clint Eastwood was a former Mayor of Carmel-by-the-Sea. He loved the town so much he purchased a beautiful property called The Mission Ranch.
The farmhouse was originally built in the 1850s and was converted into a two-story residence. But Eastwood has a touching story as to why he purchased the property. In 1986, a developer plans to build condominiums in the exact land and the actor came to the rescue. He doesn’t want the old property to be destroyed so he bought it for $5 million. Now, he converted it into a bar and restaurant with a scenic view of nature.
VICTORIA PRINCIPAL – $3 MILLION
Victoria Principal was born on January 3, 1950. She was active as an actor from 1972 to 2001. Starting in 1987, Victoria Principal has achieved great success as a producer and entrepreneur. Victoria Principal’s former home in Beverly Hills was put on the market for under $3 million in 2016. Located on the three-lined Oak Pass Road, the Dallas star’s home was nestled into the canyon.
According to the property’s realtor, when Principal still owned the property, she had made several cosmetic and system upgrades to make the house more appealing. One of the most significant additions the house had was installing the Bluestone decking surrounding the swimming pool. Credits to this pool, the house started to carry a modern look from the interior to the outside rear yard, giving it an “aesthetically cohesive design style.” The home also featured clean architectural lines and warm wood finishes that gave the house a casual look.
ROB LOWE – $42 MILLION
Rob Lowe was born on March 17, 1964, in Charlottesville, Virginia, USA. In 1979, 15-year-old Rob Lowe appeared in the sitcom A New Kind of Family and then appeared in a number of teenage roles. His hard work continues to bring new TV dramas and movies to the audience. Did you know that Rob and his wife invested quite a hefty amount of money when it came to renovating and redecorating their current residence, ultimately turning it into their dream home?
Described as “classic meets modern” this 20-room estate can rival any 5-star resort when it comes to design and amenities. It was even featured in Architecture Digest! The home was first bought for $42 million but after finishing the renovations? The Lowes were able to further raise its value by another $6 million! Needless to say, even if they don’t plan on selling, it was worth every penny.
KATY PERRY – $4 MILLION
Katy Perry was born on October 25, 1984, in Santa Barbara, California. Her music career didn’t go well at the beginning. Her debut album released in 2001 did not achieve good sales. In 2008, her second album One of the Boys brought her into the public eye. Now that she about to be a mom, we wonder what changes Katy will be making to her villa.
The $4-million home already has every luxury the pop singer can dream of, so we can only imagine the degree of child-proofing it will undergo. The 4,700-square-foot residence comes with four bedrooms and five bathrooms, a huge room-turned-closet, and a gorgeous outdoor pool. In our opinion, it is the perfect home for a growing family. Though, we’re sure she’ll want to make it cozier and might even add to its current security set-up. After all, once she’s given birth, safety and privacy become all the more important.
BILLY JOEL – $35 MILLION
Billy Joel is Ooten referred to as the “Piano Man” after his first big hit and signature song of the same name. Joel has had a good touring career, performing live shows all over the world in which he performs some of his published songs. The legendary Billy Joel once owned this gorgeous 8,881-square-foot real estate located in Miami Beach. He indeed has excellent money management, and true to his style, the home comes with its boat slip, pier, outdoor kitchen, pool, and so much more.
It may have been built back in 2004, but its design is timeless—featuring many eye-catching architectural details. Billy made quite a bit of money off of the house after he sold it in 2013. Having initially bought it for $13 million, he was able to sell it at a mark-up of $1 million to an Italian billionaire. We hope the home has ample home security as well!
JOHN TRAVOLTA – $12 MILLION
John Joseph Travolta is a singer and an American actor. Travolta has been nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor for Saturday Night Fever and Pulp Fiction Performances. For his portrayal of the lawyer Robert Shapiro in the film, he also earned an additional Emmy nomination and a Golden Globe nomination.
Since we’re moving into some very opulent territory, let’s talk about John unique property. What makes it different, you ask? Well, unlike other celebs who invested in huge pools or massive closets, John chose to build a private airport in his backyard. There are even hangars that hold his fleet of planes! For $12 million, we’re sure he’s pretty happy with this investment. It comes complete with two runways and a landing strip. When he’s not flying planes, he can also spend time in one of his pools or tee off with friends. Surprised? John’s got his own golf course, too!
DRAKE – $ 7.7 MILLION
Drake founded the OVO Sound record label as an entrepreneur with long-time collaborator 40 in 2012. Along with other business projects, he has also designed apparel, the most notable sub-label partnership with Nike. We associate rappers with luxury, but not all of them will quickly drop money on the things they want.
Just take Aubrey Drake, for example. He’s at the top of the game now, but before purchasing a home in Hollywood’s Hidden Hills, Drake waited for the price to fall from $27 to $7.7 million. And boy, did he have significant investment planning for the property. The rapper is known for his “obsession” with pools, and his home has plenty of it. He even got lagoons made to look like the real thing! These investments are pretty hefty, but we’re sure Drake’s plenty happy with them.
MEGAN FOX – $1.3 MILLION
She is an actress and model from America. She starred in the family film Holiday in the Sun, where she made her acting debut. After that, numerous supporting roles in film and television followed this. Megan has a high net worth, and she has earned that sum of money from her professional career. Megan Fox has put her Los Angeles mansion for $1.3 million on the market. Rebuilt in 2007, the three bedrooms and three baths boast 2,494 square feet of living space. It also features a spacious room with the best material roofing, vaulted ceilings, combining the kitchen, living, and dining areas.
Megan originally purchased this Sherman Oaks property for only $900,000 in 2012. Aside from this, the actress and her former husband, Brian Austin Green, have been selling their other properties. Some of the jointly-owned investments they have sold are their Toluca Lake home for $2.6 million and their Los Feliz house for an undisclosed amount.
KATE HUDSON – $5.3 MILLION
Kate Hudson is an actress, author, and fashion entrepreneur from America. In the film Almost Famous in the year 2020, she received a Golden Globe and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, and she rose to popularity for her remarkable performance. Kate Hudson bought a property with her former partner, Matt Bellamy, back in the year 2011.
After they went their separate ways and sought a divorce attorney’s help back in the year 2014, their assets were divided between the two of them. This stunning home went to Kate Hudson, which is apt because it reflects her laidback yet sophisticated style. In May of last year, the home was listed in the market for $6 million but has since been taken off of the listings—primarily because the interest for it was actually relatively low. With its stylish interiors and gorgeous landscaping, we’re baffled as to why.
KALEY CUOCO – $4.2 MILLION
Kaley Cuoco is an American actress and producer. She spent several years as a supporting actress in the television and film industry. The breakout performance of Kaley Cuoco was in the sitcom, “8 Easy Rule”. She grew to renown and gave the popular sitcom four years of her life. She has made us roll over with laughter through her antics on Big Bang Theory, but purchasing a home for herself and her family was certainly not a matter of jokes for the actress.
With her $51-million net worth, Kaley could easily invest in any property she wants but went with one that Khloe Kardashian formerly owned. This $4.2-million home is well worth the price and sound investment. It comes with a huge pool and a gourmet kitchen, an outdoor living area, five bedrooms and bathrooms, and more than enough outdoor space to extend the home or host a grand garden party, whichever tickles her fancy!
KIMORA LEE SIMMONS – $25 MILLION
Kimora Lee Simons is an American entrepreneur, fashion designer, author, philanthropist, model, and TV personality. As early as age 13, Perkins signed a modeling contract with Chanel, under Karl Lagerfeld’s tutelage, a Chanel designer. Kimora introduced its latest, advanced designer line for women, featuring Italian fabrics and handmade embellishments, KIMORA LEE SIMMONS. The gorgeous supermodel and designer currently live with her husband Tim Leissner, in a $25-million Beverly Hills home.
However, they bought it for much less and simply invested in renovations and additions to make sure it suits their family’s needs. The home sits on 20,000 square feet of land and boasts seven bedrooms and 11 bathrooms! The highlight would have to be the twin staircases, which made the place look grander. They also have a library, an office, a home theatre, and a sunken tennis court. From flooring to ceiling, every detail was probably carefully attended to by Kimora and her interior designers.
JOHN CENA – $7 MILLION
John Cena is an American professional wrestler, actor, and TV host. He is the fourth wealthiest WWE superstar. In 2005, he captured his first WWE Championship, and since then, he has won the WWE Championship 13 times, 5 times won the WWE. United States Championship, 2 times won the WWE Tage Team Championship, once won the Money in the Bank and twice won the Royal Rumble.
From WWE athlete to being one of Hollywood’s top actors, John Cena has undoubtedly come a long way. The great thing about this guy is that he never denies his roots—in fact, he is currently a brand ambassador for WWE. His WWE career was just as successful to his credit, winning a title 15 times throughout his career! He might be used to roughing it out, but John’s home is anything but. His waterfront property and opulent mansion come with outdoor and indoor pools, a cigar room for guests, and a huge garage for his luxury cars collection.
HARRY STYLES – $8 MILLION
Harry Styles is an English singer, songwriter, and actor. In 2010, his musical career started as a solo contestant on The X Factor, the British pop competition program. Styles has received many honors during his career, including a Brit Award, an American Music Award, two ARIA Music Awards, and a Billboard Music Award.
He is one of music’s top artists currently, earning millions with every release. Harry is well-known for his humility, but that doesn’t mean he cannot indulge and enjoy the fruits of his labor. Such is the case with this Hollywood home, which he bought back in 2017 for $8 million. The singer ended up putting it back on the market not too long after, realizing that it wasn’t the right fit. The mansion sold for $8 million and features a home cinema, an outdoor pool, a gym, and five bedrooms. That’s on top of the high-tech home security system offering ample privacy.
CONNIE STEVENS – $2.036 MILLION
Connie Stevens is an American actor, director, screenwriter, producer, photographer, editor, and singer. She launched her career in 1957, making her Young and Dangerous feature film debut, before recording her debut album, Concetta, the following year. When Jerry Lewis saw her in the latter and proposed her for Rock-A-Bye Baby as the young girl who loves Lewis, made at Paramount, Stevens’ big break came. Connie Stevens has reached success in her career as an actress and musician. But she’s got more to offer!
She’s a businesswoman who launched her skincare line and even a spa. While she earns a fortune, she didn’t hesitate to have a wise real estate investment. The gorgeous 1940s ranch-style house can be found in Studio City, Los Angeles. It has 5,300 square feet of California-style and rustic interiors, and she splurged a hefty $2.036 million for the entire property. It has five bedrooms and five bathrooms, and of course, she built a master suite with a lovely walk-in closet!

Alex also previously had a home in Los Angeles but sold it a few years back for $3 dollars. His new pad in New York may cost less but certainly doesn’t scrimp on all the luxuries. Parker Posey previously owned Alex’s fixer-upper with modern interiors and featured tall ceilings, panoramic windows, a home security system, and that signature red brick commonly seen in many New York City townhouses. He has made his careful investments towards renovations of his pad, further enhancing the space’s charm.
MICHAEL JORDAN – $15 MILLION
The man with the iconic number 23 jersey known with initials MJ, Michael is more than just a legend in the NBA. He’s become a cultural phenomenon with legions of loyal fans ready to buy merch with his name on it. From the Air Jordans to copies of his former basketball jersey, we’re sure that this former baller is still raking in the investment money despite being retired for a while now.
Jordan is now known for his endorsements of the brand. He fuelled Nike’s Air Jordan sneakers’ popularity, which was released in 1984 and is still popular today. He’s currently living the good life in a 9-bedroom, five full baths, four half baths, and a 14-car garage mansion that features a wine cellar, a basketball court, and a large gym. Outdoors, you’ll find a tennis court, a spacious workout room, a cigar room, and swimming pools surrounded by greenery.
PATRICK DEMPSEY – $14.5 MILLION
Patrick Galen Dempsey is an American actor and race car driver. In 2014, at the Hockenheimring help paddock at the German Grand Prix, Dempsey told Reuters that motor racing was not only a sport and that it had been as much a part of who he was as acting. Dr. McDreamy—who can forget that charming smile of his? Patrick found fame through Grey’s Anatomy, and many were truly saddened when he exited the show.
Post-Grey’s Anatomy, the actor decided to take things slower, opting for a show with fewer episodes to spend more time with his kids. Of course, that also means he gets more time to focus on racing. As for their home, he made an investment in a stunning property located in Miami. It gives off a relaxed vibe with lots of open space—perfect for anyone looking to unwind. Decorated tastefully, it’s an outstanding balance between minimalism and maximalism.
HUGH LAURIE – $3.8 MILLION
James Hugh Calum Laurie is an English actor, producer, singer, guitarist, comedian, and author. In the 2011 Guinness World Records, he was listed as the most-watched leading man on television and was one of the highest-paid actors in a television drama. Hugh has always been a familiar name in British films and television shows, but we have to credit the medical show House for really making him a household name outside of the UK.
Given his sudden popularity in Hollywood, we’re not too surprised that the actor decided to move closer to it—purchasing a California property for $3.8 million. He probably didn’t need home loans to make that happen! The mansion features luxurious amenities such as an outdoor pool and its private gym. We have to say. It’s the gorgeous views of the city that sells this property. In addition to this, Hugh also has luxury vehicles and assets that serve to boost his net worth effectively.
THE WEEKND – $20 MILLION
Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, known professionally as The Weeknd. A Canadian musician, songwriter, and record producer. Noted for his falsetto and quirky music style, Tesfaye is credited for influencing contemporary R&B and inspiring numerous musicians. Michael Jackson, Prince, and R. are quoted by Tesfaye Kelly as his primary influence for music. Like many celebs on our list, the renowned singer also owns a home in Hollywood’s Hidden Hills.
It’s a gated community that offers privacy to those looking for it. His $20-million property is fitted with all the modern amenities according to his taste. It’s got nine bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, a music lounge, a cinema theatre, wine cellar, and a recording studio. Needless to say, he can easily make new music right in the comfort of his own home. We hope his real estate portfolio also considered home security systems—it may be an exclusive community, but it’s always better to be safe than sorry!
CHRIS EVANS – $3.5 MILLION
Christopher Robert Evans is an American actor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe series of films, better known for his appearance as Captain America. Evans started his acting career by performing in school plays and community theaters. Steve Rogers may prefer the simpler things in life, but the actor who plays him in the Avengers films certainly likes something more luxurious.
He has made some amazing investments in the past few years, including a beautiful house with a jaw-dropping view. Just take his $3.5-million mansion located in the Hollywood Hills. Did you know that Chris is actually fond of cooking? Unlike most bachelor pads, in this home, it’s the kitchen that’s the highlight. Aside from the gorgeous kitchen, his property’s outdoor area also features a pool and a spa where he can relax after shooting. It cost him a pretty penny, but it probably didn’t do much damage to his wealth.
KATE UPTON – $5.5 MILLION
Kate Upton is a model and actress from America. She appeared first in 2011 in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and was the cover model for the issues of 2012, 2013, and 2017. When it comes to supermodels, you might imagine their homes to be sleek and modern. It was even reported that it’s only one of the world’s largest paying models. Something leaning towards minimalist since they’re always jetting around the globe instead of spending a lot of time in it.
In Kate’s case, now that she’s settling down with her partner and their child, her home reflects this change in her life. The property located in Benedict Canyon covers 5,706 square feet and comes with all the features the small family might need. This includes a home office, a gourmet chef’s kitchen, a swimming pool, and even a tennis court. It probably comes with a top-notch home security system as well!
