Whether you’re looking for design inspiration or just looking to fantasize about your dream home, there may be no better place to gather ideas than at the homes of celebrities. Being a wealthy and famous celebrity means you have all you want at your disposal, name it; houses, cars, an expensive closet, everything you want is yours at a click of a button. But in a world where having a house you have always dreamt about entails a non-ending path to mortgage applications and home loans.
The idea of having a well-endowed bank account is quite daunting except for celebrities. However, celebrities and famous people will still have issues like home insurance and a top-notch security system if they are to own a luxury home. So, to see a celebrity declare bankruptcy is not a common sight. Here are some amazing celebrity houses to feed your house with.

Located in the trendy TriBeCa neighborhood, the $6-million estate in the heart of the busy community holds a 3-bedroom deluxe house and covers 3,820 square feet of living space.
The flat also has a private patio, which is like the main attraction of the light bohemian architecture. Coincidentally, the property seems to reflect the actress’ happy-go-lucky persona. Even if she has to pay a pricey home insurance premium for her gorgeous home, we are in complete awe of the actress’s personal crib. If you ask us, we’d definitely say, “Investment money, well spent!”
Jeff Franklin – $4 Million, San Francisco
Jeff Franklin’s most notable project in Hollywood, without a doubt, is the classic sitcom Full House. Because of that, Franklin made a promise to himself that he would own the property, whatever the cost may be – and he did exactly that. Now, if you are one of the people who dream of living in the Full House set, we would like to offer our sincerest apologies to you because someone already beat you to it.
The ever-persistent Franklin made his dream a reality after putting up an investment worth $4 million. After patiently waiting for a couple of years, the American producer, screenwriter, and director bought the house because of the sentimental value it holds. Considering what he would get in return for acquiring the physical building of Full House, Jeff seems ready to take a couple of losses from the insurance and the restoration costs he took to bring back the property to its former glory.
LADY GAGA – $5.25 Million, Hollywood Hills
Lady Gaga got herself Frank Zappa’s former home in Laurel Canyon. The deal was considered a good value for the Poker Face singer as it was situated in a landmark location – right at the center of all things she ever wanted. The $5.25 million mansion is considered a Hollywood Hills legendary estate that spans over half an acre, covering 6,759 square feet of living space. This estate is also packed with six luxurious bathrooms, spacious seven bedrooms, and two guest houses.
In addition, the property also comes with an area exclusively for her staff, and the whole complex is wired with a top-notch home security system. The outdoor kitchen is also an excellent spot for hosting outdoor parties, and in case her guests get tired of socializing with people, they can enjoy her private art gallery or shake off some sweat on her rooftop tennis court. For her professional visitors, she can direct any aspiring industry partner to her personal recording space.
Kate Hudson – $5.3 Million,Pacific Palisades
Expansion might be one of the most overlooked investments one can make for their properties, but it certainly didn’t slip Kate Hudson’s watchful eyes. In fact, she bought a house in the Pacific Palisades right next to the estate she currently stays in. The Hollywood actress paid a considerable sum of money just to acquire the nearby land – no biggie, it’s just about $5.3 million!
Her new posh building features a personal spa, which is a perfect amenity if the actress is looking for a relaxing time after a long day’s work. The property also adds five extra bedrooms to the main complex as well as six bathrooms with a spacious pool. Admittedly, we are not sure if the new elegant building is supposed to be a guest house or if the actress would leave her old place in favor of the new. In any case, Kate can freely choose without financial consequences as her real estate investments are numerous.
Cameron Diaz – $4.25 Million, Manhattan
Popular Hollywood actress Cameron Diaz has decided to sell her beautiful Manhattan apartment designed in 2015 by Kelly Wearstler. The studio which she has lived in since 2008 is located in the gorgeous neighborhood of Greenwich Village. The Charlie’s Angels star was willing to part ways with her apartment after getting a deal worth $4.5 million, and we are confident she has cashed out big time on her investment.
At the time, the A-list actress tied the knot with the famed musician, songwriter, and music producer Benji Madden. The lovely couple probably talked about their residential options, and it just so happened that the two own a $2.178 million pad in Los Angeles. They used that property as their main base and decided to sell the other one to help them build up their funds for their future family. That move also saved them a couple of bucks from their insurance premium.
Pete Davidson and Ariana – $16 million, Chelsea
Without a doubt, Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson seemed to be one of the most famous celebrity couples back when they were still dating. If you ask us, much of the buzz that the two create on the internet is not only because of their chemistry but their iconic roller coaster romance as well. They may be both young at the time, but their investment planning strategy was top class. The celebrity couple is known to have moved in together before, and reports suggest they stayed in a luxury property in Chelsea, New York.
Their shared home within the area was allegedly worth around $16 million. If that was already enough to make your jaw drop, wait ’til you hear that the estate also has four bedrooms, a home theatre, a skylight swimming pool, and a juice bar. Imagine the insurance of this posh building! Now that the infamous pair have gone their separate ways, we wonder what happened to this property?
Marshawn Lynch – $3.3, Richmond
Lynch decided to buy himself an amazing 7000-square-foot mansion in Richmond, California. The building complex sports a breathtaking view of the San Francisco Bay and has all the amenities money can buy. His posh property is also considered to be the most extravagant among NFL players, and that goes to show how much money he poured into the waterfront mansion. Lynch’s home holds five elegant bedrooms and six baths.
If ever he wants to stroll around the waters of the San Francisco Bay area, he can easily do so because of his exclusive access to a boat dock right within his vicinity. For entertainment, the mansion has a costly home theater setup, and the house even has its own elevator! The property was purchased in 2012 for an estimated price of $3.3 million, and it’s certainly quite a bargain, given how the athlete secured a pleasant and serene place for resting. With Lynch’s astounding net worth, he wouldn’t have to worry about mortgage troubles when he retires.
Kevin Durant – $12.05, Malibu
Wealthy athletes are known for their lavish spending, and Kevin Durant is no exception to that fact. Just to give you an idea, one of the exclusive properties in his investment portfolio would be his Malibu oceanfront mansion that he acquired earlier this year. Now, if you are wondering about the price tag, be prepared to be blown away since he dropped in a very expensive amount of $12.05 million.
The property is situated in a private gated neighborhood for that added layer of security and privacy. On top of that, the mansion is filled with beautiful balconies that offer a fantastic view of the surrounding area. The open-plan living area seems to be a perfect fit for the basketball phenom since it would provide plenty of room to wiggle with if he wants to tweak something in his house. The property was built in 1976 but has been renovated since then. For sure, house insurance has skyrocketed over the years!
Carson Palmer – $24 million, Del Mar
Carson Palmer is a retired American football player and served as a quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals. He played stellar football during his time on the field, and that translated to the amount of money he was able to grab over the course of his career. Although he is no longer part of the game, the weight of Palmer’s credit card can still afford the 8,000-square-foot property situated in a prime location in Del Mar.
The breathtaking structure had cost the athlete a massive $24 million, which is by no means a simple amount that everyone can afford. The mansion has eight elegant bathrooms and six spacious bedrooms. Not to mention, the cooking area is also one of the most gorgeous spots in the house, thanks to its modern kitchen setup. Given the value and amenities found in his household, it’s safe to assume that Palmer has also installed a top-notch home security system.
Rachael Ray – $4.69 million, Southampton
Rachael Ray recently decided to sell her real estate investment in Southampton for $4.69 million – and for a good reason! The celebrity chef, TV personality, and the author is said to have seen a buyer for the mansion.

The living room, on the other hand, offers top-notch comfort and style, perfect for receiving and entertaining guests while they are in the vicinity. Three bedrooms are spread across the area, which is suitable for anyone who wants a comfortable stay in her home.

Let’s hope she spoke to her financial advisor before selling her posh property!
Drew Barrymore – $7.5million, California
When it comes to Hollywood, Drew Barrymore has been one of the standout actresses in recent times. She takes credit for a lot of memorable roles in Hollywood, and most of the movies she got involved with ended up becoming a box-office hit. However, her private life has not been as spotless as her career. The 50 First Dates actress decided to file for a divorce for the third time from the art consultant Will Kopelman, with the help of her personal lawyer.
As advised by her legal aid at the time, the star listed their home for sale. The luxurious structure located in California real estate cost around $7.5 million, and for those who are willing to shell out that kind of money, we are assured that they would be getting all of their money’s worth.

Ellen DeGeneres – $45 Million, California
Self-made television host and comedian Ellen DeGeneres decided to sell the amazing 10,500-square-foot Montecito property in California. Being into real estate investment for years, Ellen knows a thing or two about buying and selling houses. In fact, she uses all of her resources to make the deal as appealing as possible to potential buyers of the property. Ellen lived in this mansion with her partner, Portia de Rossi, when the couple decided to part ways with the property in exchange for a whopping $45 million.
However, the price was reduced to $39.5 million as it was difficult to get a buyer for the initial asking price. The gorgeous house sits on 17 acres of land, and it includes countless amenities like a swimming pool and other outdoor-specific activities. The main complex, on the other hand, has six spacious bedrooms, six bathrooms. The media room is massive, and the same can be said about the giant dining table. Home insurance money can’t be a problem for this rich TV personality!
Will Smith – $42 Million, California
Will Smith formerly resided in a small mansion in Bel-Air, which suited him after his breakout role in the TV show The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. As it turned out, however, the superstar actor had other plans to move to a more befitting mansion in Calabasas, California, for a change of scenery and a better living space for him and his family. The compound of his Calabasas mansion is so huge that it has its own zip code— and that’s not an easy feat to achieve!
His property houses all the possible amenities people could only hope and wish for, just like the multiple basketball and tennis courts. If he wants to play golf, he can easily do so in his personal golf course sitting right within the vicinity of his lot. Seeing how massive his complex is, parking would never be a problem for his guests. With the sheer size of his compound, we could only guess how much the property’s insurance premium costs.
Eva Mendes – $1.27 Million, California
The beautiful Eva Mendes and her now ex-boyfriend George Gargurevich used to own a posh and luxurious 1,732-square-foot mansion in California. Their property holds three spacious bedrooms and two baths. It seems to be the perfect dwelling place for someone as regal as Eva. Fortunately, the pair didn’t end up inside a lawyer’s office after the split since they were not legally married in the first place.
A few months after their eight-year relationship ended, the actress listed the property for sale. In 2002, the house was valued at $584k, but Eva sold it for $1.27 million. It’s a good return for money if you ask us! Luckily, the actress managed to sell the property with little trouble, and she now lives a different life in another home with her current boyfriend Ryan Gosling and their two kids. From the looks of things, all worked out for the best in the end.
Jennifer Aniston – $42 Million, Beverly Hills
Jennifer Aniston is a famous actress known for her roles in countless blockbuster movies. The blonde sweetheart’s reputation gave her the leeway to purchase something special after spending hours and a whole lot of effort in her acting. Jenifer ended up acquiring an elegant Beverly Hills mansion in 2006, which was a good investment on her part. The house cost the actress $13.5 million, but soon after, Jenifer enlisted the house for sale at an unbelievable amount.
To be more specific, she was willing to part ways with her estate for $42 million, given the series of renovations she did for the property. The deluxe house features a fully-functional gym, a huge garage, five spacious bedrooms, and a high-tech security system. When Jennifer and her husband parted ways in 2018, the actress decided to put another estate on the market. This time, it was the couple’s $21 million Bel-Air mansion. We’re sure giving up a few properties is no big deal for the multi-million net worth of the actress!
Judd Apatow & Leslie Mann – $11.5 Million, Malibu
Popular writer Judd Apatow and his wife Leslie Mann purchased a 1930s Malibu mansion from the late director Laura Ziskin in 2013. It seemed to be a perfect place for the two, and the property suits them well. A few years later, the couple decided to place their home on the market, hoping to cash in on their investment for the price of $12 million. The estate features three spacious and luxurious-looking bedrooms as well as four modern bathrooms.
Apparently, the property wasn’t on the market for long after someone picked it up for a discounted price of around $11.5 million. Sure, the couple lost a potential earning of approximately $500,000, but that’s already a win in our books since they didn’t have to wait for a long sale period. With a credit card that runs in six or more figures, Judd and Leslie sure have enough money to spare.
Bryce Dallas Howard – $2.9 Million, Hollywood Hills
We all know Bryce Dallas Howard as the daughter of popular actor Ron Howard. As it turns out, acting is not the only thing that runs in their blood – but having an eye for prime real estate as well. Bryce, along with her hubby Seth Gabel, decided to buy a Mediterranean-style house in 2006 as a starting point of their relationship. The mansion cost the actress and her husband around $2.92 million, and only a few years later, she put the house on the market at a lower price.
Surprisingly, it was sold after a couple of months to the tune of $2.355 million, though the selling price wasn’t enough to cover their spendings on the estate. On the brighter side, they wouldn’t have to worry about mortgages and other financial obligations associated with the property. Bryce and Seth ended up using the money they got from the deal to purchase a new home somewhere else.
Blake Shelton – $3 Million, Nashville
In 2015, country superstar and The Voice coach Blake Shelton decided to call it quits with his wife, Miranda Lambert. The separation caused a lot of headaches, especially for the fans since multiple dramas happened amidst the event. Blake and his ex-wife co-owned a 5-bedroom Nashville apartment uniquely decorated with pieces from different centuries. In the end, both parties decided to part ways with the house.
They both agreed to the terms that they would sell off their home, and the proceeds would be divided between the two of them.
As advised by their lawyer, Miranda and Blake’s house was sold for $3 million. The male singer then went on to build a Hawaiian-style gateway for his new lady, Gwen Stefani, using the earned money and the extra cash he got from working in the industry for a couple of years. It is always good to have a loaded credit card – and having a hefty net worth doesn’t hurt!
Lauren Conrad – $5.2 Million, California
Lauren Conrad is well informed when it comes to matters of real estate, and she knows a thing or two about crucial deals. The reality TV personality and fashion designer decided to list her Pacific Palisades, California apartment for $5.2 million. The Mediterranean-style estate includes five spacious bedrooms, paired with five modern bathrooms. The property also sports two overlooking terraces, where guests can see the beautiful surroundings of the neighborhood.
Of course, the entire package wouldn’t be complete without a top-notch home security system wired around the property for that added protection and privacy. In just a short amount of time, Lauren managed to find a buyer for the 5,900-square-foot property but sold it for a discounted price of around $4.99 million. The Hollywood personality made a small profit from the sale as she purchased another house for $4.4 million a couple of weeks later. It’s certainly a win-win situation!

If the Teenage Dream singer wants to have a relaxing session after a long day’s work, she can easily do it with the help of her gorgeous pool that offers a cozy ambiance. In fact, a lot of people could easily confuse the place for a small private ocean villa. With an impressive credit card balance, Katy’s lavish lifestyle comes as no surprise to fans. Now that she has recently welcomed her first child, Daisy, Katy surely deserves to spend her early maternity period with the best things that her paycheck can offer.
Britney Spears – $9 Million, California

The pop star owns a 13,264 square feet mansion in California, where she spends most of her time.

Morgan Freeman – Amount Undisclosed, Mississippi
Morgan Freeman’s net worth is estimated at $200 million, and that’s all because of the numerous hits he provided in the entertainment scene during the last couple of decades. The legendary actor is known for his rich, baritone voice and smooth acting skills that earned him huge paychecks, on top of the awards he amassed throughout his career. Given how popular the Hollywood “Voice of God” is, it goes without saying that all eyes are on him – but he did a great job concealing his private life away from the public!
A huge part of it has something to do with his top-grade home security system. Because of that, people can only speculate the exact worth of his Mississippi property since he provided little to no information about it. So far, all we know is that the A-list actor owns a vast 124-acre ranch, which is undoubtedly the perfect place to be in after a stressful day on a Hollywood set. Morgan might also have a fancy for bees, and he turned a portion of this estate into a bee farm.

Celine created her Bahamian-style paradise and built herself a water-park mansion to cover everything that she needed in a house.
With a net worth of $380 million, it’s no wonder she can afford this kind of luxury. The 10,000 -square-foot property features a pool, a man-made river, and even water slides. It also sports a good home security system that keeps its residents safe from unwanted visitors.

GEORGE & AMAL CLOONEY – $20 MILLION, LONDON
Over the past couple of years, George Clooney earned a reputation as one of the top personalities of his time both in terms of raw talent and good looks. A lot of people would even agree that the more he ages, the better his looks go. On the other hand, his wife, Amal Alamuddin, is a known international lawyer and a crucial personality in the human rights scene. For the choice of their residence, the celebrity couple purchased a Berkshire mansion in 2014, but they only moved in recently together with their twins.
The villa has a massive price tag of $20 million, but it’s apparent that the property is worth more than that, as it comes with a modern home cinema capable of supporting 12 persons, a pool house, and a couple of nanny’s quarters. It also has a Subterranean irrigation system, nine bedrooms, an all-weather tennis court, and an outdoor playground. What more is there to ask for?

It also comes with a lot of amenities, such as a fully stocked gym and a 14-seater home theatre.

He plans on turning the place into an eco-resort, and that might cost him millions.
However, with the kind of money DiCaprio sits on, he can easily brush it off like it is nothing to his bank balance. His island can host up to 36 residential homes and 36 villas. The island is presently being sold for $5 million. All things in place, from the cars to the food, would be eco-friendly.

Joaquin Phoenix – $1.39 Million, Los Angeles
A lot of people didn’t know the name Joaquin Phoenix, and that might be attributed to a number of factors. We can’t deny the fact, though, that he’s a man full of talent, and he clearly showed that even before the world recognized him as one of the greatest actors of our current generation. His success in show business allowed him to purchase his neighbor’s house for $1.39 back in 2013.
The award-winning actor is yet to merge both houses but clearly has drawn up a couple of plans in the coming future. His latest acquisition is the 2,511 square feet of living space with an amazing vintage interior décor.

The outdoor is also no slouch because of the infinity pool and the home security system installed around the vicinity.
CHRIS EVANS – $3.5 MILLION, HOLLYWOOD HILLS

However, put his iconic mask on and hand him over his famous shield, and a lot of people would instantly recognize the character he played for the Marvel Cinematic Universe – the one and only Captain America! The actor behind the famous superhero, Chris Evans, allegedly won a bidding battle for the 4,599 square feet home in Laurel Canyon, besides Hollywood Hills.
It seemed to be the right fit for the actor since the master’s bedroom pretty much fits his superhero lifestyle. The estate also comes with a spacious dressing room, and the whole complex is fitted with large floor-to-ceiling windows. Security won’t be an issue if you are within the vicinity since it sports a top of the line home security system.

KENDALL JENNER – $6.5 MILLION, HOLLYWOOD HILLS
The entertainment industry is never short of exciting stories to tell.

BRUCE WILLIS – $9 MILLION, BEDFORD, NEW YORK
Over the years, Hollywood has introduced us to plenty of movie stars, especially in the ’80s and ’90s. Back in the days when digital effects were still in their infancy stages, films often needed to rely on practical effects – though they do use some computer-generated visuals from time to time. One such flick during this era people still love to rewatch today is the movie, Die Hard, starring Bruce Willis.
Since the story takes place during Christmas Eve, it’s safe to say this Bruce Willis-led action film also counts as a Christmas movie. Other films Bruce got the chance to act in through the years, including Unbreakable, 12 Monkeys, and Pulp Fiction. The actor has amassed great wealth from acting, so it’s expected that he spends a considerable amount of it on properties. Thankfully, he hasn’t bought unnecessary items that a financial advisor would vote against. Instead, Willis got himself a gorgeous 8,400-square-foot mansion in Bedford, New York, which he purchased for an astounding price of $9 million.

Besides being a well-known member of the group Take That, Williams is also just as successful in his solo career, having released plenty of hit singles and albums.
With the amount of money that most celebrities have in their pockets, it’s considered normal practice to spend it on a top-of-the-line house. On the other hand, Robbie Williams took things to another level and bought an entire building. Located in West London, just in Kensington, the property cost him $17 million. It came with 46 rooms, a huge garage, and a top-of-the-line home security system. Sadly, Robbie didn’t get to move in right after he bought it.

After the movies gave her widespread recognition, the actress continued with her acting career and starred in other projects like Sucker Punch, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, Spring Breakers, and Bad Boys for Life.The 30-year-old actress bought her first house for $2.7 million in Studio City, California.
The mansion, which is a combination of Tuscan and Moroccan style, offers a breathtaking view of the city. It has six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a posh entry hall with curved staircases, a family room, and a wine cellar. The outdoors are embellished with a saline water swimming pool, a spa, a large barbecue area, and a cabana. We are not sure whether Hudgens’ financial adviser gave her the green light for this property, but one thing’s sure – that’s a lot of money for a first home.
JOSH HUTCHERSON – $2.5 MILLION, HOLLYWOOD HILLS
At the age of four, Josh Hutcherson already had a burning passion for acting. Even so, his parents thought this was just a phase. When eight-year-old Josh began perusing through the yellow pages in search of an acting agency, his parents finally gave in and supported him with his dream. Since then, Hutcherson got the chance to star in many of today’s favorite films, including Zathura: A Space Adventure, The Polar Express, Bridge to Terabithia, and Journey to the Center of the Earth.
In more recent years, the actor became a more notable name thanks to his role in the Hunger Games movies and Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. At some point, Josh Hutcherson purchased himself a tree-house in Hollywood Hills, formally owned by Ellen DeGeneres, for $2.5 million. This one-with-nature 1,821-square-foot house has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a dining room with a barbecue area, a movie room, and a built-in home security system.
LUCY HALE – $1.7 MILLION, L.A.
For most of her childhood, Lucy Hale had the chance to take acting and singing lessons. Fortunately, this experience soon paved the way for her career under the Hollywood spotlight. Nowadays, Hale is often well-known for her role in the TV shows like Bionic Woman, Privileged, Life Sentence, and, most significantly, Pretty Little Liars. However, Lucy is still relatively new in the music industry – she released her debut album Road Between in 2014.
With the fortunes she has earned in her career, American actress and singer Lucy Hale shelled out 1.7 million dollars’ worth of investment money on a property in Studio City, LA. The 3,618-square-foot Mediterranean villa boasts four bedrooms and three bathrooms, an open floor plan for the living and dining rooms, a luxurious master suite with a fireplace, and a private bathroom with a jetted tub and a double sink. The outside space is not as big, but it has a small saltwater swimming pool and a cabana.
Burt Reynolds – $3.3 Million, Florida
There’s always something about actors and their childhood dreams of becoming an athlete. For one of Hollywood’s most famous actors, Burt Reynolds, he first wanted to pursue a career as a professional football player. Well, like Diane Kruger, Reynolds got an injury that ended his dream of going pro right then and there. As a result, he became an actor and found success in projects like Deliverance, The Longest Yard, and Hooper.
Sadly, Reynolds passed away on the 6th of September 2018 from a heart attack. Although he had a successful run in the entertainment industry, he, unfortunately, went through a series of financial troubles later on in his life. As a result, the actor sold this mansion to his friend Charles Modica in 2015 for $3.3 million, with the hopes that it can help settle his personal loans. Even so, Modica, like the good companion that he is, allowed Reynolds to live with him in the house – with little to no rent, too.
CHLOE GRACE MORETZ – $3.4 MILLION, L.A.
Although siblings often share different interests, one can’t deny that there will always be a hint of similarity between them. Well, such is the case for Chloe Grace Moretz. During her childhood years, Chloe and her mom moved to New York since her brother Trevor was accepted into the Professional Performing Arts School. Although she didn’t go to the same school herself, Chloe eventually discovered her desire to act.
From that point on, the then-aspiring actress began her career and starred in two episodes of The Guardian. However, it was her role in the 2005 remake of The Amityville Horror that brought Chloe on the public’s radar. The actress has made numerous real estate investments over the years. However, the latest property she added to her already-impressive portfolio is the 5,600-square-foot mansion worth around $3.4 million. In addition to five bedrooms and six bathrooms, the pad includes a large master bath complete with a Jacuzzi tub, while on the outside, there is a pool, spa, and a waterfall.
JULIANNE HOUGH – $2 MILLION, HOLLYWOOD HILLS
Since she was raised in a family full of dancers, it comes as no surprise that Julianne Hough also decided to become one herself – she began competitive dancing when she was nine years old. Eventually, in 2007, she joined Dancing with the Stars and won two seasons. By 2014, Julianne’s career went full circle when she returned to the competition show, only this time as a judge. For her time on the program, Julianne won one of the three Primetime Emmy Awards she was nominated for.
Julianne Hough is an American dancer, singer, and actress. With a $10-million net worth, Hough decided it was high time she started working on her real estate investments. One such property she has in her portfolio is her Hollywood Hills home. The house offers four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, and 2,101 square feet of living space. Julianne and her husband, Brooks Laich, have plenty of room to relax in and feel at home.
HILARY DUFF – $6.2 MILLION, L.A.
This woman is not only beautiful but also smart. She is an author, businesswoman, actress, songwriter, and singer. With that said, it comes as no surprise that Hillary Duff also takes the credit for being the inspiration of her fellow Disney actresses, Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez. Throughout her time in the channel, Hilary instantly achieved widespread recognition for her role in the show Lizzie McGuire.
After a couple of other successful projects, Hilary also took some time working on other business ventures. Eventually, the actress-singer finally got her fashion line, including Stuff by Hilary Duff and Femme for DKNY. If you ever had any doubts about Hillary Duff’s lifestyle, just take a look at her drop-dead-gorgeous Mediterranean-style mansion. Sitting on nearly half an acre of land, this 9,277-square-foot luxury property is complete with five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a gym, a game room, and a cognac room. Of course, this lovely sanctuary also features a massive swimming pool and three garages.
HARRY STYLES – $8.5 MILLION, HOLLYWOOD HILLS
This English singer, songwriter, and actor did not fare so well in the talent competition series The X Factor, having been eliminated early. Styles, however, considered the start of his music career. Shortly thereafter, he joined One Direction, and the band became one of the bestselling boy-bands of all time. He decided to get a mansion in Hollywood Hills like most of his colleagues.
With a $50 net worth, Harry’s credit card is heavy enough to live in this sophisticated area. He paid $6.87 million for the property, only to list it for a whopping $8.5 million a year later. Besides an excellent home security system, which is a must for such homes, the property features a gym, hot tub, screening room, swimming pool, and spa. When Styles hosts a party, the visitors would surely admire the design of the villa and would ask for a tour from him.
BELLA THORNE – $2 MILLION, L.A
At a young age, Bella Thorne has proven herself to be capable of many things. She is now an actress, a model, a director, and a singer. The actress first gained national recognition when she appeared as Ruthy Spivey in My Worst Enemy, a TV series. She has been seen in various recent films, including Midnight Sun. The actress, however, has turned to music recently, releasing her own label, Filthy Fangs, and appearing as Swan in the Masked Singer.
When we accidentally bumped into Bella Thorne’s real estate portfolio, we must admit that we had to check her age again. Yep, she just got out of her teens, and yet she already owns a $2-million deluxe mansion located in Sherman Oaks. The 6-bedroom, 6-bath traditional estate boasts 4,500 square feet of living space, a wine room, fireplace, walk-in closet, and a top-notch security system. Talking about the outside of the property, there is a swimming pool, spa, bar, and much more. For her age, we must commend her investment skills!
Oprah Winfrey – $50 Million, California
You don’t expect the richest African-American woman in the world not to live a life of luxury. The media mogul and billionaire is a lot of things, but mediocre isn’t one of them. Sure, she started out destitute, but Oprah worked her way up to the top. The renowned TV personality has been involved in the industry since the late 1970s— and her grandmother was not surprised at all that she entered the world media because she noticed early on that Oprah had stage presence.
With an estimated net worth of $3 billion and many real estate purchases, Oprah is now living the high life, free to spend her well-deserved earnings. The TV host’s property craze led her to make a $50-million purchase. Yeah, you heard right, $50 million! The $23,000-square-foot mansion is now her haven, and the modifications alone increased its value to $165 million! Call it lavish all you want, but you can’t deny that this sweet pad is also a great investment.
Petra Ecclestone – Estimated $200 Million, Holmby Hills
Petra is a British-born heiress, model, fashion designer, and socialite. If you’ve been following her closely, you might notice that the celebrity is very health conscious. Reportedly, this stemmed from a childhood experience of contracting a viral disease— and it seems like her mindfulness in health has eventually evolved to business. When Petra was growing up, she had always wanted to be a fashion designer. Unlike others who pursued women’s wear, the designer opted for men’s clothing, thinking that fashion for women was already saturated.
This decision pointed to her to make business decisions with calculated risks. As such, she has also acquired a number of real estate properties to add to her portfolio. Most notably, the style icon purchased Candy Spelling’s former estate for $85 million back in 2011. The model didn’t use a credit card but instead bought the home named The Manor outright. Although Petra paid $85 million for the property, additional renovations were made, which led her to shell out an estimated total of $200 million. Imagine the insurance on this property!
Michael Jordan – $15 Million, Chicago
When you hear basketball, the next person that comes to mind is Michael Jordan. He is arguably the greatest B-baller of all time. This guy made a fortune during his playing career, and even though he has retired from professional basketball, Jordan still has a steady flow of earnings from his big brand endorsements. Now that Jordan has time to spare, he turned to entrepreneurship, where he quickly saw success. The former basketball star is now the owner of NBA’s Charlotte Hornets. It’s safe to say that the iconic athlete worked every inch of the way for all that he now has.
A prime example of his vast display of wealth is Jordan’s $15-million Chicago home that comes complete with nine bedrooms, an indoor basketball court, a huge gym, a wine cellar, and a wooden lux man cave for recreation and relaxation. The outside is just as spectacular, too. The retired basketball star for sure pays a sizable amount for his home insurance. When he hosts parties, we expect the visitors to be in awe of the house and of the man himself, too!
Justin Bieber – $20 Million, Hollywood Hills
Like most stories of self-made young millionaires, it’s quite hard to believe how disproportionate Justin Bieber’s wealth is to his age. Justin is just 26 but his bank account looks like that of a 60-year-old who had put in decades of hard work! All of his money started out thanks to his YouTube song covers, where he earned a massive following during the late 2000s. The pop singer was recognized as a teen idol, though like anyone undergoing puberty, he also had shown a rebellious side eventually. Now that he’s in his 20s, it seems like the Canadian superstar has outgrown all of that, having settled recently with his wife, Hailey Baldwin.
With a history of canceling events just to have some private time, it’s surprising that Justin Bieber’s choice for a home is a 6,500-square-feet glass house that allows you to see everything going on inside from every possible angle. The property is estimated to cost $60K a month in rent payments and has seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a 7-car garage, and a gorgeous infinity pool. With his earnings and estimated net worth of $200 million, home insurance money should not be a problem for the Biebs.
Rihanna – $22 Million, Barbados
Rihanna was born in Barbados and was invited to the United States when the future star was discovered by Evan Rogers. She then signed up with Def Dam in 2005, paving the way for her stardom. The singer gained fame when she released her albums, A Girl Like Me and Music of the Sun. Critics say that every time Rihanna releases an album or a song, one can notice a transformation or rebirth. In our opinion, that just proves her versatility and talent even more! As proof, the singer’s chart-topping song, Umbrella, earned her a Grammy and also effectively introduced her to the world stage.
This music goddess boasts of an unselfish lifestyle uncommon among people of her caliber. She takes credit for a few charity-related functions, which surprisingly do not stifle her eccentric personality. Rihanna’s tropical Barbie dream house may be a little pricey in maintenance and home insurance payments, but it suits the singer just fine. With five bedrooms and a view overlooking the Caribbean Sea, the music icon definitely did not scrimp on luxury.
Beyoncé & Jay Z – $45 Million, L.A.
You can argue all you want, but these two music royalties by far make up the most popular couple on the planet. With a combined net worth of almost $1 billion, they can afford almost everything money can buy. Queen B and Jay Z’s $45 million Los Angeles property is a testament to this fact. Considering they exist in a world where the concept of “mortgage” and “refinance a home” are alien, it is easy to see why financial problems can easily be swept under the rug.
With a billion-dollar net worth, they can certainly afford the upkeep of a property with 14 rooms, an aquarium, nightclub, home theater, bowling alley, tennis court, swimming pools, and a citrus orchard. Now that the Carter family is growing, it goes without saying that their three kids deserve a home with nothing but the best. Bey and Jay certainly do not hold back on splurging for family and splendor!
The Playboy Mansion – $100 Million, L.A.
Hugh Hefner was an American magazine publisher and life-stylist. He was the founder and editor-in-chief of the Playboy magazine. Unfortunately, he moved on to greener pastures in 2017 at age 91, leaving behind an abundance of wealth and investments for his children. During his heyday, Hefner was known for hosting lavish parties at his villa with socialites and celebrities in attendance.
His Playboy mansion boasts of round-the-clock staff as well as an underground cellar, screening room, game room, gym, spa, three zoos, photography studios, waterfall, and three fully grown forests. The thought of property insurance for an estate of this size would likely stun us, but its new owner, Dean Metropoulos, certainly would not bat an eyelash over the amount as he is also one rich guy. The billionaire investor also wanted to preserve the legacy of the mansion, so he applied for permanent protection, which would disallow the demolition of the house.
Matthew McConaughey – $4 Million, Austin
Matthew McConaughey was first noticed by the public when he appeared in the cult classic film Dazed and Confused in 1993. This was also considered as his breakthrough movie, and soon, many more followed— this time with him in lead roles. The actor even ventured into romantic comedies during the 2000s, further drawing fans close to him. Over the years, Matthew has also chosen to give a part of his wealth to charity for teens to live a healthy life so they could grow up to become good men and women.
A lot can be said about the audacity of a man that lives near water – and perhaps even more about the insurance company that provides his home with a cover. For Mathew, this reality is all too familiar. His property is in the Rivercrest area near Lake Austin – 10,000 square feet Spanish Mediterranean estate that includes seven bedrooms, a gated long drive with two circular motor courts, and docking for boats for leisure sailing. Undoubtedly a man of depth and spontaneity, Matthew never fails to surprise us!
Dick Van Dyke – $8.9 Million, Encino
With a career spanning seven decades, much can be said about Dick Van Dyke. He first captured the audience on Broadway and on the radio before he became known as Rob Petrie on The Dick Van Dyke Show. The old man surprised a lot of people by settling for a mansion this luxurious. Looking at his age, you would expect him to perch on a three or two-bedroom apartment, but this guy’s age has nothing to do with his lifestyle.
With a net worth of $50, His house is surrounded by tall trees and hedges, and it is teeming with grace and many beautiful rooms with high ceilings. To count just some of them, he has his own theater room, a gym, a cozy fireplace in the master bedroom, and the list goes on and on! For sure, his monthly electricity bill would be enormous, but it should not be an issue for the wealthy retiree.
Jessica Biel – $20.2 Million, New York
Jessica Biel began her career appearing as Mary Camden in 7Th Heaven, where her performance earned her acclaim. When she appeared as the lead Erin Hardesty in the horror movie The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, critics were in awe. Moviemaking is not her only activity, though, as she also likes participating in charity events, even climbing Mount Kilimanjaro to help raise awareness on water issues.
With a joint net worth estimated at $250 million, Jessica and hubby, Justin Timberlake could afford a penthouse $20 million and still have a six-figure limit on their credit cards. The 5,400-square-foot pad cost Timberlake and Biel $20.2 million. The building where their apartment is located seems to be trendy among celebrities. In fact, the beloved Hollywood pair, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are just some of their neighbors. This elegant and expensive penthouse includes an indoor swimming pool, four bedrooms, and six bathrooms. It’s not a bad purchase, in our opinion.
Matt Damon – $16.645 Million, Brooklyn
Matt Damon is considered as one of Forbes’ most bankable stars— and they are definitely right. The actor has received not one but multiple nominations and awards, including two Golden Globe Awards and an Academy Award. This sure was an upgrade from when he appeared in the film Mystic Pizza in 1988. Being married with kids makes your housing demands expensive. Not for this guy! In 2017, the famous actor dropped $16.645 million on a lavish Brooklyn condo.
If your credit report and score permits you to spend that much, why not? This purchase marked him as the man who made the most expensive real estate purchase in the city. The three-unit pad is over 6,000-square-foot big, with six bedrooms, a kid’s playroom, its own gym, wooden floors, a good security system, and other amenities. It is said that Damon and his family might move to Australia, though, so now we’re wondering what’s going to happen to this awesome unit?
Parker Schnabel – $950K, Alaska
Parker Schnabel is just 26, but he’s already living like a king. The young star of the reality TV show Gold Rush became a multi-millionaire with a net worth of $3 million after mining gold. After the show was canceled, he embraced the “life up north.” Those following his Instagram account would see tons of photos showing pines, snow, and even the occasional moose. It appears that Parker loves being with nature. In fact, he also owns a dog and loves taking him on walks in public parks.
After making so much money, the reality TV celebrity decided to invest in some real estate and bought himself a beautiful mansion in Alaska, which is fully equipped with four suites, two swimming pools, and 12 spacious rooms. Making investments in a prime real estate location is definitely a good plan. Alaska certainly has its charms, which young Hollywood stars like Parker find attractive.
Ashton Kutcher & Mila Kunis – $10 Million, Beverly Hills
Christopher Ashton Kutcher is an American actor and investor. He began his career by portraying Michael Kelso in the Fox sitcom That 70’s show. As a venture capitalist, Kutcher has made significant financial decisions that showed how skillful he is. For example, he invested heavily in prime startups like Lemonade, ResearchGate, Neighborly, and Kopari Beauty. His wife, Mila Kunis, meanwhile has her focus on acting, with her last appearance being in the movie Four Good Days. She will also star alongside Regina Hall and Allison Janney in a 2021 film, Breaking News in Yuba County.
Kutcher and his wife might be a young couple, but they are way behind their That 70’s Show days in Eric’s basement. Now married with two kids to think about, the couple splurged on a $10-million 3-bedroom home in Beverly Hills to accommodate their rapidly growing family. The couple’s money management principles must be telling them that one-time purchases of this kind are an excellent investment in the long run.
Tim McGraw & Faith Hill – $18 Million, Bahamas
Tim McGraw is not just an ordinary singer as he also ventured into acting. He appeared in The Shack and took a lead role in Flicka as well as Country Strong. Testing his entrepreneurial skills, McGraw also obtained minority ownership in the Nashville Kats of the Arena Football League. He had been married to Faith Hill since 1996. This couple is a perfect example of true love as they prove that love lasts forever, and even after being married for decades, the country music stars are still in love with each other.
In 2003, the couple decided to buy a little piece of heaven in the Bahamas for their family of five. Starting from the ground, the mansion took years to finish, including bringing in electricity and water! The whole reconstruction was only finalized in 2012. Overall, the property includes eight interconnected pavilions with outdoor passages between them, showing that they have such great taste. Home security is a must for this kind of estate!
Wesley Snipes – $10 Million, New Jersey
Wesley Trent Snipes is not only a popular actor but a director, producer, and author, too. Snipes formed the production company Amen-Ra Films to produce films for both TV and the big screen. Did you know that apart from acting and moviemaking, the actor is also into martial arts? He has been training since 12 and had already obtained his fifth dan black belt in Shotokan Karate. Wesley even used this knowledge to venture into VIP protection services when he established a security firm called the Royal Guard of Amen-Ra.
Now, he lives in New Jersey in his modest house worth $10 million with his wife, Nakyung Park, who is a known talented painter. Talking about Wesley’s house, it has a swimming pool, home cinema, and an office. Looking at the amenities he has in his property, we don’t think the actor would apply for a title loan to buy another property anytime soon.
Bob Barker – Los Angeles
Bob Barker is a show host who kicked off his career in the mid-1950s on the show Truth or Consequences. He later rose to mainstream popularity in the 1970s when he became the host of the game show, The Price Is Right. He held that position for almost four decades, making him an icon in the industry. The game show host even had his own radio show, The Bob Barker Show that was on air for six years.
This guy made a lot of money from TV hosting so, having one or two real estate investments is not a bad idea. The exact price of his house is undisclosed, but we’re sure it didn’t come cheap. The house was constructed in 1929 and is considered as one of the earlier luxury development in that corner of Los Angeles. Barker’s colonial house is dated, but it is very much stylish and classy, fitting for a man of his status.
Naomi Campbell – Estimated $390 Million, Turkey
Naomi Campbell is certainly not a model for everybody; she is a model with class and wealth. The classic stunner was discovered at the tender age of 15, and her career took off like a rocket with massive amounts of gas. Campbell was instantly elevated to being among the most recognizable model in the 1980s and 1990s. Over time, she was also declared a supermodel by the international press.
Although Campbell earned a lot of money during her career, it sure doesn’t hurt dating someone who is a billionaire. Russian business mogul Vladislav Doronin decided to treat his girlfriend for her 41st birthday with a gorgeous $390-million mansion on the island named the Eye of Horus in Turkey. The vacation house has 25 rooms, and it is the only house on the island. Doronin, who knows plenty about real estate, probably didn’t feel the burden of this birthday present with his net worth estimated at $1 billion.
Joe Montana – $29 Million, Napa Valley
Joe Montana is a former NFL quarterback, and like many of his contemporaries, he led his team, primarily the San Francisco 49ers, to a series of wins. He also started and won four Super Bowls and was nominated and given recognition as MVP thrice. His career at the NFL allowed him to earn money and fame, and when he announced his retirement in 1995, everyone felt the impending loss. Nonetheless, they gave him credit by having SuperBowl XXX dedicated to him.
Montana owns a spectacular Tuscan-style villa. The estate features a stunning 9,700-square-foot, three-bedroom Italian-inspired villa, a separate guesthouse/artist studio, a caretakers’ cottage, plus a sprawling equestrian center. According to listing agent Avram Goldman of Compass, the Montanas were inspired to build the villa by their travels throughout Italy and France. The Hall of Fame quarterback, who led the San Francisco 49ers to four Super Bowl victories in the 1980s, previously listed Villa Montana back in 2009 for an ambitious $49 million.
Harry & Meghan Markle – $4 Million, Kensington Place
Prince Harry tied the knot with actress Meghan Markle in 2018, and they have since started a family of their own! In preparation for being a family man, the wealthy former royal had to buy a befitting home for him and his lovely wife, the Duchess of Sussex. The couple used to live in Frogmore Cottage located within the Kensington Palace. The property is believed to be worth around $2.6 million, and, in fact, it was where Princess Diana used to stay.
The two, of course, had left the United Kingdom and chose to live far away, first in Canada and now in California. They moved into their new home back in July 2020 and valued the privacy that Santa Barbara had to offer them. With a foundation being cooked up, they sure need a time out from prying eyes, and the exclusive neighborhood could give them just that— in addition to an excellent home security system installed within the vicinity of the property.
Steve Harvey – $7.7 Million, Los Angeles
Steve Harvey has already been a very famous man in the United States for decades, but he had gotten a greater level of infamy when he made a mistake in announcing the Miss Universe winner back in 2015. The TV host took ownership and profusely apologized for the gaffe, but it took some time for the public to forget. Now everyone just laughs about the incident, with many even making memes about it.
In 2013, Harvey purchased a 5,500-square-foot penthouse on the 88th floor of the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago, Illinois, and was filming his daytime talk show The Steve Harvey Show. It wasn’t until the fall of 2018 that he broke up with the mansion for $7.7 million. The decision to sell the penthouse may be due to the move of Harvey’s performance from Chicago to Los Angeles. He probably needed to talk to the moving company. On the business side, Harvey also consolidated all his companies under one umbrella, Steve Harvey Global.
Bill Cosby– $7.5 Million, Los Angeles
The American comedian was famous during the height of his career and is best remembered for his performance in The Bill Cosby Show that ran for two seasons between 1969 to 1971. He also created the Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids series, which ran until 1965. Bill Cosby was not only an accomplished actor, but he was also an excellent academician, having earned a doctorate degree in education, where his thesis focused on the use of the show Fat Albert as a teaching tool for primary students.
Cosby and his wife Camille own 21 acres of land to protect them from the public. The property is shown in an exclusive aerial photo, which contains at least five buildings, including the main building. The swimming pool and tennis court were part of a 21-acre property purchased by Cosby in 1971. He also owns houses in the suburbs of Los Angeles and Philadelphia.
O.J.Simpson- $1.8 Million,Vegas
Before gaining notoriety, O.J. Simson was a football running back and an actor. In his youth, he attended the University of Southern California (USC), playing football for the USC Trojans. The former athlete went on to become part of the NFL for 11 seasons playing mostly with the Buffalo Bills. He also found life after the field in acting and football broadcasting. Given the turmoil he has experienced all his life, O.J. is still trying to live a new and better life.
As everyone knows, Simpson has been headlined with controversy over the years. All the efforts of his lawyer and himself gave him a second chance. Now, he may not have all the luxury items he previously owned, but he still lives in a comfortable home. Simpson now lives peacefully in his $1.8 million house in Las Vegas. This 5,000-square-foot house is located in an enclosed village and has amenities such as a swimming pool. It’s a great place to start anew!
John Travolta – $12 Million, Florida
John Travolta was famous during the 1970s when he appeared in various films like Saturday Night Fever, Grease, and Carrie. These box-office hits made the actor a household name, and he was even nominated for the Academy Awards in a number of these movies. In 2010, Travolta received IIFA Award for Outstanding Achievement in International Cinema. He met some controversies in 2012, so much so that he had to get the services of an attorney to defend him against those allegations. Luckily, the charges were eventually dropped by the complainant without prejudice.
On a different note, this next Travolta fact will shock you! It turns out that the celebrity has an airport in his compound. One should have an excellent credit report to pull that off! The home/airport is valued at $12 million, the face-off actor’s net worth stands at a whopping $160 million. The mansion features a long landing strip, airplane hangars, pools, and a golf course. An airport in a compound? That is one crazy idea, but hey, this is John Travolta we’re talking about!
Snoop Dogg is an American rapper and known media figure. The rapper’s fame traces back to 1992 when he appeared on Dr. Dre’s solo single Deep Cover and subsequently on the album The Chronic. He had since then sold more than 23 million albums in the US alone and 35 million worldwide. Every year, Snoop Dogg’s net income from typical assets increases by $16.5 million. Some of his most outstanding achievements include his debut album Doggystyle, which has sold 5.1 million copies to date.
In addition, his collaboration with Katy Perry’s California Girls also helped him achieve great success, with sales of the song reaching 5.7 million copies. Snoop Dogg currently owns a luxury home in Blaisdell Ranch, California. The initial area of the house was 3,500 square feet, but he increased its area to 6,500, almost doubled! In a feature program of MTV’s popular program Crib, he revealed that his home has 5.5 bathrooms, a recording studio, a basketball court, a swimming pool and which for sure consumes a lot of electricity.
Diana Ross is an American record producer, singer, actress who is best known for being the vocal lead of The Supremes. Her group remains among the top and best-charting female bank in history after having to their credit 12 number one hits on the US Billboard Hot 100. She has a mansion valued at $16.9 million in Greenwich. This 70-year-old legendary house is located in a prime location, close to the waterfront, and offers plenty of open space for guests.
Tall trees also surround the residence, making the ceremony and reception a private event. The house has a brick exterior and slate roof, marble decoration and custom woodwork, as well as bright and airy casual spaces and state-of-the-art technology, which is warm and liveable. The house is located at the end of a cul-de-sac, isolated from the rest of the world, with access to downtown Greenwich. Covering an area of 3.4 acres, the lot features neatly manicured lawns, including swimming pools, swimming pools, and tennis courts.
Tom Selleck – $4.69 million, Ventura
Tom Selleck is an American movie producer and actor who rose to fame for his starring role as Thomas Magnum, a private investigator in the TV series Magnum, P.I, which was based in Hawaii. He also played Police Chief Jesse Stone in a series of made-for-TV movies based on Robert B. Parker novels. The handsome star has been acting in the drama Blue Bloods on CBS as NYPD Commissioner Frank Reagan since 2010. His police roles probably stem from the fact that he was a National Guard veteran and an avid rifle fan.
The actor lives in a 60-acre restored 1910 hunting lodge on his Ventura County, California, ranch. The property boasts of a 1926 ranch house, a horse corral, a 20-acre working avocado farm, a private helipad swimming pool, tennis court, horse stables, and plenty of fenced areas to ride. Even without a home security system, the vast land has afforded Selleck the privacy he needed.
Sean Connery – $1.84 Million, County Wicklow
Sean Connery was a beloved actor who played the first James Bond. While he is widely given credit for the role, this was not his only character on the big screen. He also appeared in successful films like The Hunt for Red October, A Bridge Too Far, and The Man Who Would Be King. The actor was so well-loved that in 2004, voters in a poll on Sunday Herald named him as “The Greatest Living Scot.” The same outpouring of love was seen right after his passing.
With a net worth of nearly $120 million, Sean Connery had enough money to through around on properties without being scared of bankruptcy. He accumulated enough investment money in his bank account that would most likely go to his heirs now that the actor is deceased. The veteran actor owned an Irish property since the ‘70s near County Wicklow but decided to sell the property for $1.84 million.
Barbara Walters is the first lady of broadcast journalism. Walters is well respected for his interviewing skills and popularity among the audience and has served as the host of many TV shows, including Today, The View, 20/20, and ABC Evening News. Walters was active in journalism from 1952 until 2015, which showed her degree of dedication to the profession. She only retired because of an open heart surgery that had to be done despite being symptom-free.
Otherwise, we would still be seeing Walters on TV up to this day. Recognizing her contributions to the media industry, they inducted Walters into the Television Hall of Fame in 1989, in addition to being given the Lifetime Achievement Award from the New York Women’s Agenda. She has a real estate property located in one of the most famous corners of the Upper East Side, 555 Park Avenue, with a list price of $10,350,000 and a monthly rent of US$37,500. This four-bedroom house features high coffered ceilings, custom woodwork, and dark parquet floors. The home must consume a lot of electricity, given its sheer size.
PEYTON MANNING – ESTIMATED $4.5 MILLION, DENVER
Peyton Manning is a former American football quarterback who played a record for 18 seasons in the National football league. He was lauded as one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history. Manning started his love for the sport when he played college football at the University of Tennessee. His success in college translated to more wins during his stint at the NFL, having won many records, including being a five-time AP MVP awardee.
Manning was also known as “The Sheriff.” This NFL star lives in Denver’s Chevy Hills Village in a stunning Georgian mansion worth $4.57 million. Not a bad portfolio for a retired baller! The 16,464 square feet house has seven bedrooms, ten bathrooms, an entertainment room, a wine cellar, and an enormous garage. There are a few features of the place you do not see every day, as well, like a dog room and a “safe” room, all guarded by a state-of-the-art home security system.
