There’s no denying our fascination with celebrity homes and our voyeuristic nature to view and follow along as they buy, sell and rent luxurious properties all over the globe.
Below we highlight a few of the most recent and dazzling collection of homes for sale by the rich and famous who are either downgrading, upgrading and or simply shifting their prime portfolios around.
Let us know which one is your favorite, below in the comment area?
1. Alicia Keys –
Singer and Grammy winning musician Alicia Keys has listed her sprawling penthouse in SOHO which she has only lived in a tad over two years and bought from rocker Lenny Kravitz. The home is a modern revelation featuring 5 bedrooms, 4 full and 4 half baths, third level roof terrace, private wine cellar, separate storage rooms and a spectacular floating glass staircase all in all over 6,000 square feet in a grand SOHO district penthouse.
2. Christina Aguilera –
This is one my favorites as its very pink and very girlie. You see lots of velvet, dramatic decor and an overall offbeat design throughout the home. It’s located in Beverly Hills and on sale for $13,500,000 which includes over 10,000 in square footage, its own private beauty salon built into one of the huge closets, pink pool table, a wrapping station for wrapping gifts, 6 bedrooms and a whopping 9 bathrooms. Christina bought it from Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne in 2007 and was the house featured throughout The Osbourne’s TV show series.
3. Michael Jordan –
As a Chicagoan I take great pride in our basketball hero Michael Jordan formerly of the Chicago Bulls and his estate in Highland Park, Illinois is now up for grabs at a cool $29 million. The home is the biggest on our list with over 54,000 square feet of house and features many amenities including a 500 bottle wine cellar, custom built cigar parlor, a full size basketball court (of course), 9 bedrooms, 15 bathrooms and the famous #23 adorned front driveway entrance gate.
4. Mel Gibson –
Aussie actor Mel Gibson has a rather sizable real estate portfolio as well, including a monstrous home in Costa Rica. The lovely hacienda style house sits on a crazy 500 private acres of land and is a beachfront property with 7 seven bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, a courtyard, swimming pool, two guest cottages, a Balinese house with no walls, a restaurant and a cottage in a nearby jungle. This going rate for this large property is $29,800,000.
5. Ellen Degeneres and Portia De Rossi –
This power couple have several homes throughout the US and abroad, their most notable recent purchase was that of Brad Pitt’s former home in Malibu. That being said the comedienne and actress wife have put up the palatial Beverly Hills estate they got married in back in 2008. The home is a natural oasis with Koi ponds, various species of Carob, pear and oak trees, several outdoor pools and three different guest houses all sitting on just a tad north of 9,000 square feet. Asking price? $49 million big ones.
Celebrities love to buy and sell property like most buy socks, far too often. However if you have the means, go for it. We hope you enjoyed this quick showcase of massive, expensive and breath-taking celebrity homes for sale and are not too envious.
