WEB DESK: While some celebrities are spending their massive funds on a multitude of real estate, others may own only one, extremely luxurious house.
Ellen DeGeneres, Oprah Winfrey, and Beyoncé are only a number of major faces with much bigger properties.
Keep scrolling to see how much money those celebrities are happy to spend in one place.
Bill Gates’ house is currently worth at least $127 million in Medina, Washington
In 1988, Bill Gates bought the property for $2 million. However, a lot of work has been done in the advanced home technology.
The farm, surnamed “Xanadu 2.0,” took Gates 7 years and $63 million to complete. The villa has reportedly 7 bedrooms and 18.75 baths, including a 60-foot swimming pool, a trampoline lounge, a sauna, a steam room and separate shower rooms for males and females.
Oprah Winfrey has a reported 65 acre property in California worth almost $100 million
Oprah Winfrey has 65 acres of land at her estate in the so-called “Promised Land” of Montecito, California.
When she bought the 23,000 square-foot manor house for $50 million in 2001, now, due to the acquisition of more land and extensive renovations, the value is projected almost twice that.
The expensive mansion contains six suites, 14 baths, 10 fireplaces, two theatres, a wine-producing cellar, a barn, swimming pools, a tennis court, a lake and the broad guest house with a swimming pool. There’s a tea house too.
The Playboy Mansion was sold for 100 million dollars in 2016
The Playboy Mansion of Hugh Hefner is perhaps the world’s most popular home. The 30-room house has a game room, a zoo, an avirya, an grotto, a basketball court, a wine cellar and a pipe organ equipped screening room.
Hefner, who sadly died in 2017, purchased it in 1971 for just $1.1 million, then sold it in 2016 for $100 million. While it was about half its requested worth, it was the biggest residential property deal in Los Angeles history at that time.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z purchased a $88 million Los Angeles pad
The two whose Forbes net value amounted to $1.26 billion in 2019 bought a new mansion in Bel Air for approximately $88 million, which has a full gym, a media centre and four outdoor pools. There is also a basketball court, a 15-car garage and a staff area.
For a chateau in the south of France, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie spent around $67 million
This French château, known as Chateau Miraval, was bought by the couple for approximately 67 million dollars in 2008. In 2014 it was the site of their wedding, which took place on the property in the ruins of a Romanesque chapel. The property also comprises forests, olive groves, a private lake, fountains, a wine-growing area and a moat.
The estate consists of 1200 acres, and many buildings were built in the 17th century. There are 35 rooms in the main house alone.
The couple who revealed that they separated in 2016 are currently struggling over who gets it.
The manor house of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West is 20 million dollars, but now is 60 million dollars following substantial renovations
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West acquired their $20 million Hidden Hills home in California in 2014 and, according to TMZ, have invested another $20 million on upgrades.
The 3 acre, 8-bedroom property comprises eight fireplaces, two swimming pools, a winemaking garden, a complete music studio and a large wardrobe, of course. The home is known for its minimalistic, creamy style, which West says is influenced by a Belgian monastery.
The estate is now estimated to be worth 60 million dollars.
Tom Cruise has a $59 million home in Telluride, Colorado
Tom Cruise’s Telluride, Colorado, occupies an expansive area of 298 acres and features forest trails, vast hills, and horse stables. It does have its own private helicopter pad, without which Cruise will most likely not access hundreds of acres.
The residence is ten thousand square feet and consists of 7 bedrooms and 9 baths, a custom library, a reception area and a separate house for guests.
He advertised the home in 2014 for $59 million, but after two years he took it off the market.
