Top Outrageous and Expensive Celebrity Mega-Mansions

Living a luxurious life is one of the best things you can do if you're paid a lot of money. Imagine living in a home that costs millions, even billions of dollars. Can you imagine that? Since we were all little kids we dreamed of owning a mansion and we've all thought about what our dream house would look like inside and out.

Celebrities who are paid a lot make use of their money to live a breathtaking and unique life in a magnificent home (or homes) that is totally different from the homes in which we live. Some celebrities own the most expensive homes in the world and these homes are equipped with everything that's needed and more in order to live a comfortable and wealthy life that suits their position. We present to you, the most expensive celebrity homes in the world.

Aaron Spelling-$150 Million

Aaron Spelling is a famous television producer who owns the most expensive celebrity home in the world. The mansion is located in Los Angeles and is 56.500 square feet. There is four garages, three kitchens, a swimming pool, a modern gym, skating rink, bowling alley, orchard, and tennis courts.

The Manor, also known as Spelling Manor, is a mansion located in the Holmby Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, across the street from Holmby Park. Constructed in 1988 for television producer Aaron Spelling, it is the largest home in Los Angeles County. It is currently owned by British heiress Petra Stunt, daughter of Formula One racing magnate Bernie Ecclestone. Stunt purchased the home in 2011 for $85 million after it had been on the market for two years with an asking price of $150 million, making it the most expensive residential real estate listing in the US at the time

Bill Gates-147.5 Million

He's not just the founder of one of the most profitable companies in the world, he's is also the richest person in the world, but his house isn't the most expensive home. His home is located in Medina, Washington, and costs $147.5 million. He has a swimming pool, bowling alley, a gigantic library, a state-wide server system, and there is a pin that is given to the visitors used to change the temperature of the home, lighting, and music.

With a net worth of $88.3 billion, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates is the richest man in America.
It shouldn't be too surprising that one of the wealthiest people in the world also has an insanely extravagant home. It took Gates seven years and $63 million to build his Medina, Washington, estate, named "Xanadu 2.0" after the fictional home of Charles Foster Kane, the title character of "Citizen Kane." At 66,000 square feet, the home is absolutely massive, and it's loaded to the brim with high-tech details.

Cindy Crawford-$60 Million

Cindy Crawford was the most famous and highest-paid supermodels in the world during the 1990s. She soon became a real estate guru, picking up multiple desirable properties over the years. In November 2016, she and her husband put their beachfront Malibu, California home on the market that came to a $60 million dollar price tag. The property is 5,200 square feet and sits on three secluded acres. The home features a master suite, private tennis court, swimming pool, and panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean.

Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber bought another four-bedroom, six-bathroom mansion in Malibu less than a year ago for $6 million. Now they've put it on the market for a shocking $15.45 million. But is it worth the price jump?

Tiger Woods - $60 Million

tiger woods fl home

Tiger Woods' ex-wife Elin Nordegren, who was married to the pro golfer for six years, has placed her 11-bedroom Florida mansion on the market for $49.5 million. Woods and 38-year-old Nordegren divorced in 2010. The property was purchased by Nordegren in 2011 for $12.25 million, and the custom-built mansion was completed in 2014.

The 23,176 square-foot oceanfront home is in Seminole Landing — a private, gated community in North Palm Beach, Florida. The property comes with 11 bedrooms, 15 full baths, a guest house, and a four-car garage. Other perks inside include a wine cellar, theater, fitness center, a catering kitchen, and a three-story Swarovski crystal chandelier. The home is inspired by British West Indies architectural design, and if the beach doesn't impress, there's also a swimming pool equipped with a waterslide and spa, lounge areas with fire pits, a half basketball court, and a putting green.

Hugh Hefner-$54 Million

Hugh Hefner was a magazine publisher who owned a $54 million dollar home. The mansion is located in Los Angeles, California and has amenities such as a wine cellar, swimming pool, game room, waterfall, zoo, aviary, pet cemetery, and tennis courts. This mansion has just about everything you could dream of in your modest life.

With the passing of 91-year-old soft-porn purveyor and lifelong bon vivant Hugh Hefner, the iconic Playboy Mansion in L.A.’s posh Holmby Hills ‘hood will be handed over to its owner, next door neighbor Daren Metropoulos, who will embark on what will no doubt be a comprehensive and costly overhaul of the fabled estate.

Though he occupied it as his home for almost five decades, in recent years the legendary and legendarily sex-fueled Playboy Mansion was not owned directly by Hefner but rather by Playboy Enterprises which, after putting it up for sale in early 2016 with a preposterous asking price of $200 million, sold the estate in August 2016 for $100 million to Mister Metropoulos, silver-spooned businessman son of billionaire C. Dean Metropoulos. Conditions at the time of the sale stipulated Hef, to be buried next to Marilyn Monroe at the Westwood Village Memorial Park, would remain in residence until his death at a rental rate of $1 million per year.

Oprah Winfrey - $50 million

Oprah Winfrey is one of the most famous people, not Justin the United States, but in the whole world thanks to her talk show that began in 1986. Her home costs $85 million and is located in Montecito, California and it has 6 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, 10 fireplaces, movie theater, garden, teahouse, and a lake that is dedicated to her collection of fish.

In order to live your best life, you've got to love the place you call home—or in Oprah Winfrey's case, the multimillion-dollar homes you own all over the country. It should come as no surprise to anyone that the media mogul's real estate portfolio is the stuff of dreams. According to Forbes, she's got a net worth of around 3.1 billion (yes, with a B), so dropping $28 million on a horse farm barely even puts a dent in Queen O's wallet.

Earlier this year, Oprah purchased the Seamair Farm Estate, a 23-acre horse farm in Montecito. The "once in a lifetime property" hadn't been on the market in over 30 years, so Oprah was lucky to purchase the lavish property at auction.

Ryan Seacrest - $49 million

Ryan Seacrest buys Ellen DeGeneres and Portia DeRossi 's Beverly Hills mansion for - million! (archive) Feb 17, 2010 X17online.com exclusive

Ryan Seacrest expanded the home to 9,500 square feet, and bought the two neighboring properties and created a pond. There are also two guest houses, and a separate three-bedroom house on the grounds. In the main nine-bedroom residence, there's a media room where former owners, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi were married. There's also a meditation room. When Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi put their Beverly Hills estate up for sale earlier this year for $49 million, Ryan Seacrest snagged up the mega-mansion (possibly with a friend-of-the-family discount!)

At the front entrance, giant palms, agave and other plantings, by Agua Landscape, provide a lush, welcoming atmosphere. “You feel like you’re at some kind of resort,” says Seacrest.“I went with rich, warm, deeper, more masculine colors throughout,” says Andrews, who was also careful to create a unique identity for each space. In the breakfast room, he used art and furnishings, such as high-back chairs, that match the proportions of the tall fireplace. The master suite “feels large, but it’s not, really,” says Andrews. “Jeff understood the feeling of peace I wanted to have,” says Seacrest.

Cher - $45 million

This $45 million home which is around 14,000 square feet, this Italian Renaissance-style Malibu home overlooks the Pacific Ocean. It also includes an infinity-edge pool. Every day when I wake up and look out my bedroom window, I’m never not amazed,” marvels Cher, staring out one of a myriad of arched windows that define her new house, an Italian Renaissance–style villa that sits high on a bluff, overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

“Every room has two views of the ocean, each of which is so beautiful—the water is always glistening, the sunset always happening. My house is so special because it’s my sanctuary, my fortress, really—the only place I have any privacy. There’s no place else that I would rather be.”

Coming from Cher, that says a lot. After all, the singer has turned out a hit—and a house—or two in her time. So when it came to putting together her 19th project with designer Ron Wilson, she knew what she wanted—and he, how to make it happen.
