It doesn’t take a genius to know that celebrities rake in truckloads of money from their projects and although not all, many of them like to spend big on a lot of luxurious things like bags and vacations. Smart ones prefer to invest their hard-earned moolah in their houses … er, mansions that are worth millions. The following properties of famous stars can make anyone turn green with envy:
Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres is known for her philanthropic acts, but she is also a notorious buyer of real estate properties. In 2012, the influential celebrity bought her Santa Barbara house for a whopping $26.5 million and spent a huge sum on the renovation of the not-so-humble abode.
This spacious mansion, also called The Villa, spans 10,000 sq ft and has a tennis court, swimming pool, guest house made by the TV personality herself, six bedrooms, and nine fireplaces. She sold it in 2017 for $45 million.
Tom Cruise is one of the biggest stars, and it just makes sense that he lives in a humongous house. His $59-million property that measures 10,000 sq ft is near Telluride, Colorado. The stunning estate and its location between the mountains may account for the hefty price tag.
As for the home, one look and you know it definitely feels warm. Lining the ceilings and walls is cedarwood that exudes a very welcoming atmosphere.
There are nine bathrooms, seven bedrooms, a library, a gym, and recreational room – in short, luxurious amenities that may be more than enough for the Mission: Impossible – Fallout star.
Although Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie called it quits many years ago, their abode is one of the most expensive among celebrity properties.
The Chateau Miraval in Correns, France, is nothing but grand. This estate is iconic because it was where the former love birds tied the knot in 2014 and has since been the perfect vacation destination for the entire family.
This property is now in the midst of a divorce battle between the Mr. and Mrs. Smith co-stars, and there’s a reason they are fighting for it. The estate, which is about 1,200 acres, contains a vineyard, moat, lake, and olive groves.
Jay-Z and Beyonce
Unlike Brangelina, Jay-Z and Beyonce’s relationship remains strong. They bought an $88-million Bel-Air property that boasts six structures. There are wellness rooms, swimming pools, and media rooms.
