Ever wonder how the top 10% of the richest population lives? Here’s a sneak peek into the luxurious homes of film stars around the world!
Big houses, flashy cars and living in style— who doesn’t wish they were rich and famous? Whether it’s Hollywood or Bollywood, movie stars love to splurge their millions on private jets and paparazzi-free mansions with ocean views; straight out of one of their movies! Let’s take a closer look at the price tags of their palatial homes.
#10 Amitabh Bachchan’s Mumbai Bungalow ‘Jalsa’– $17 Million
No doubt, any die-hard Bollywood fan can tell you the legendary Big B’s address by heart. Valued at over Rs.110 crores, the actor resides in this beautiful 10,125 square feet bungalow in the heart of Mumbai along with his family. The illustrious Bachchan clan recently purchased an 8,000 sq feet bungalow behind Jalsa. They also own two more mansions in the neighbouring Juhu area called Janak —which doubles as a gym and office—and Pratiksha, their ancestral home.
#9 Taylor Swift’s Rhode Island Villa- $17.75 Million
The 27-year-old songstress’ sprawling oceanside property was reportedly paid for in cold hard cash. Famous for throwing star-studded fourth of July parties for her squad, the “Shake It Off” singer’s 11,000 square feet villa boasts stunning ocean views and eight fireplaces. She also owns homes in Nashville, Tennessee, Beverly Hills, California and West Village, New York—setting her back a staggering $44 million.
#8 Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s California Estate – $20 Million
America’s most controversial power couple Kimye currently reside in their eight-bedroom ten-bathroom Hidden Hills mansion which is spread across 3-acres. The stunning property has—wait for it— eight fireplaces, two spas, two swimming pools as well as its own vineyard! They splurged $20 million on the house after abandoning their previous $11 million Bel Air mansion, because of its skyrocketing renovation costs.
#7 Michael Jordan’s Illinois Residence- $29 Million
The billionaire Chicago Bulls star has been trying to sell his 56,000 square feet private residence since 2012 but to no avail, finally lowering his asking price to $15 million. The plush nine-bedroom property in the windy city’s elite Highland Park suburb comes with 15 bathrooms, a tennis court, a card room, a gym, a hair salon, a golf course, and naturally, a basketball court!
#6 Shahrukh Khan’s Mumbai Mansion ‘Mannat’- $31 Million
Considering that his earnings in 2017 have already crossed $38 million, it’s hard to believe that the Badshah of Bollywood came to Mumbai with merely Rs. 300 in his pocket. King Khan’s six-storey palatial residence in Bandra is currently valued at over Rs. 200 crores. With over 20,000 square feet of space, the property boasts an office, a gym, a library, an entertainment room and expensive artwork by the likes of M.F. Hussain.
#5 Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s Malibu Manor- $54.5 Million
The proud parents—who recently welcomed home twins Rumi and Sir Carter—are currently nesting in their luxurious $400,000 a month Malibu manor. While they don’t exactly own the place, rumors are that the power couple has dropped a whopping $120 million on a brand new Bel Air mansion complete with eight bedrooms, four swimming pools and bulletproof windows. Meanwhile, their rental pad—valued at a jaw-dropping $54.5 million— has 10-bedrooms, 14-bathrooms, a 25-ft infinity pool, a bowling alley and a private movie theatre!
#4 Tiger Woods’ Florida Property- $60 Million
The former world No. 1 golf pro purchased this 12-acre beachfront property for $40 million in 2006 along with his now ex-wife Elin Nordegren. However, following their $100 million divorce, Woods transformed his 10,000 square feet Jupiter Island home into a state-of-the-art bachelor pad with a gym, putting studio, a tennis court, four greens and several swimming pools!
#3 Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s French Chateau- $60 Million
The Hollywood star couple may have split now but they own several properties together, perhaps the most magnificent of which is their French Chateau Miraval. Spread over 1200-acres the luxurious 17th century property shows off a moat, a vineyard, fountains, a private lake and even a 200-year-old olive tree! The sprawling villa also comes with a gym, spa, home theatre and a helipad.
#2 Oprah Winfrey’s California Manor- $90 Million
Aptly named ‘The Promised Land,’ Oprah Winfrey’s extravagant home in Montecito, California is spread across 42-acres and offers stunning ocean and mountain views. The property possesses 6 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, 10 fireplaces, 2 theatres, a tennis court, a wine cellar and even a manmade lake! The billionaire talk show host also owns homes in Antigua, Chicago, Florida, Hawaii and New Jersey. Not too shabby!
#1 Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion- $100 Million
This one comes as no surprise because who hasn’t heard of the infamous Playboy mansion? The iconic castle-like structure with its 29 rooms, a tennis court and wine cellar, has been one of the most coveted addresses in Hollywood. Last year, it was sold off for roughly half its asking price, under the condition that the 91-year-old Hefner continues to live there along with his beloved bunnies. That’s what we call living life king-size!
