Wanna see the homes that aren’t even worthy of our dreams? Homes that make our homes look like shacks? These celebrities all have incredible houses that will blow your socks off. And there are even a few whose homes are a lot more modest than you would think. Like Pat Sajak’s, for example. You’ll see…
Oprah Winfrey, one of the few women billionaires, has more than one home (obviously). A price tag of $50 million would be ridiculous for most people, even celebrities. But for Oprah, it’s totally doable. The house is a castle. Oprah is still dominating, with her magazine, shows, and podcast. Retirement will be a breeze for this amazing woman, and it looks like a place like this can’t be a better place to enjoy it. I wonder how many cleaners she has?
Ellen Degeneres – $8 Million, Montecito, California
Ellen DeGeneres, the comedian who is known for her quirky sense of humor, recently put her banking needs on the back burner and invested in a new property in Montecito. We heard that Ellen and wife, Portia de Rossi, managed to snap up the uber-luxurious property in the upscale seaside community for just 8 million dollars. Ellen and her celebrity neighbor, Oprah Winfrey, got totally emotional while talking about the 2018 Southern California mudslide that took a heavy toll on the area. However, Ellen and Portia didn’t have to worry too much as they have a second property in Carpinteria that’s worth nearly 18 million dollars.
Alex Trebek — $3.995 Million, Hollywood Hills
If there’s a name that’s synonymous with ‘Jeopardy!’ it’s Alex Trebek, the host of the insanely popular game show. He built this Hollywood Hills mansion the same year that he started hosting the show. But he sold it 12 years later. The house, as you can imagine, is gorgeous. The modern-looking estate blends in perfectly with the area that belongs to the rich and the famous.

Ron Howard – $27.5 Million, Connecticut
Ron Howard has directed some of the best movies of our time, including ‘Rush,’ ‘A Beautiful Mind,’ ‘Apollo 13’ and many more. So it’s not hard to believe that a multi-million dollar home is going to be one of his significant purchases. He lives in a 17,000 square-foot, six-bedroom mansion in Greenwich, Connecticut. The house cost about $27 million, has everything from an indoor pool to the tennis court to a private lake! But apparently, it was the privacy and solitude of the beautiful forests that drew him to the property. Howard wanted to raise his children in Connecticut because he wished to them as far from Los Angeles as possible. And I don’t blame him for that.
Pat Sajak — $699,000, Glendale
Pat Sajak, who we all know is the host of ‘Wheel of Fortune,’ has owned this amazing Glendale home that was built 1911. Sure, it’s had its renovations, but it looks like he kept the original feel. The house is worth a mere $700,000. Pat Sajak and his ex-wife decided to sell the house after their divorce. But Sajak’s extremely successful career can afford him the thousands of dollars in losses, so I doubt the divorce really set him back much.
Al Roker – $3 Million, Manhattan
Al Roker, the beloved weather forecaster, journalist, actor, TV personality, and author, is seen on your television screens every day as the weather anchor of ‘Today.’ He also makes his famous appearance every year for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Remember Bob Barker from the days you used to watch ‘The Price is Right?’ Well, the old-fashioned man has a knack for old things.

That of ancient Greece influenced the architecture, and Bob has his share of luxuries inside. Bob’s many years of success as possibly the most popular game show host has allowed him to cultivate a home of luxury. At 95 years of age, he’s still kickin’ it and enjoying his days in retirement.
John Cena – $7 Million, Florida
The Brand Ambassador for WWE, John Cena is accessible in the world of professional wrestling. Cena has won the WWE Champion title 15 times during his 20-year wrestling career! That’s pretty impressive if you ask me. Not surprisingly, his net worth is $55 million.

The mansion cost him an estimated $7 million.

Stephen Hawking — $860,000, Cambridge
I don’t think I need to introduce someone such as Stephen Hawking as pretty much everyone in the world knows who he was. Sadly, he passed away in March 2018, leaving behind his fantastic ground floor flat in Cambridge. It looks like Hawking was a modest man who lived in humble means, which surprising considering his contribution to the world we live in. The home was comfortable for him, given that he was in a motorized wheelchair.
Denzel Washington — $14.6 Million, Beverly Hills
Leave it to Denzel Washington to have one of the best estates in Beverly Hills. His home is nothing short of enormous, spanning almost 30,000 square feet! I can only imagine how long it would take to do a walking tour of the place. (Whereas my apartment would take about 7.5 seconds to roam through). At Denzel’s home, after the pool and the tennis court, you’re going to want a water break. If you want proof that he’s doing well in his career, this is it. So, Denzel, when’s the next action flick coming out?
Meg Ryan – $10.9 Million, Soho
Is that Meg Ryan’s house? Or is it from the pages of some fancy home decoration magazine? She (or her decorator) has really great taste. This trendy Soho loft is perfect in terms of design and style, and this is also her 9th renovation project. The loft is 4,100 square feet, which include 13 windows and eight closets in the master bedroom alone! There’s also a 40-foot gallery, ebony wooden floors, exposed brick walls (LOVE IT), and floor-to-ceiling French doors. Who would have thought that the star of ‘You’ve Got Mail’ would have such a spectacular SoHo loft?
Selena Gomez – $4 Million, Texas
Selena Gomez made a name for herself as one of the most influential pop stars in modern history. But if you’re like me, you know here as Justin Bieber’s ex. But anyways, with a net worth of $60 million, it could be a lot to handle for a 26-year-old. Gomez is dedicated to her friends and family, which is why she bought this 10,000-square-foot mansion in Fort Worth – to spend time with them. The resort-style home is over 1.5 acres, with five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, two kitchens, a home theater, a gaming room, and parking for eight cars. The best part? The saltwater pool with a rock slide next to the outdoor kitchen and living room.
Kris Jenner — $10 Million, Hidden Hills
Known as the KarJenner matriarch, Kris Jenner wants to be near her kids, having bought a house in Hidden Hills which is especially close to Kim Kardashian’s former home. Jenner is actually 63 years of age right now, despite her appearance (ahem, plastic surgery, ahem). Her house is gorgeous and fits multiple families in it, which is likely the purpose. $10 million might be a lot for the average person, but for a member of the Jenner family, it’s peanuts. She can spend that much in one weekend.
Chris Cuomo – $2.9 Million, Southhampton, New York
Chris Cuomo currently works for CNN and appears on the show ‘Cuomo Prime Time,’ a weekly program, and ‘Good Morning America’ among others. His estimated $9-million net worth allowed him to purchase this modest yet elegant house in New York. Chris has recently put his house up for sale. He repurchased the 3,000-square-foot property in 2005 for around $1.3 million. This home is the perfect combination of cozy and elegant. By the way, is it just me or does Cuomo look like he could be Jerry Seinfeld’s brother?
Andy Cohen — Manhattan, Price Undisclosed
Andy Cohen, the radio and TV personality, is known for being on talk shows, including Bravo’s ‘Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.’ He’s also behind the camera, working as a producer and writer. His career has earned him a net worth of an estimated $15 million. Being the executive producer of shows like ‘Top Chef’ and ‘Real Housewives’ surely pays off and allows you to purchase homes like this one. He recently became a father via surrogate, which is likely why he merged three of his Manhattan apartments to form one huge apartment.
Carson Daly – $6.5 Million, New York
Carson Daly and his wife, Siri, are loving their family life in this fancy home in Long Island. It does look like an impressive home to grow up in. I mean, who wouldn’t want a pool to swim in every day? The two-story estate has six bedrooms.

His kids must love it just as much, if not more than he does.

Kathie Lee Gifford — Florida Keys, $10.5 Million

Berry Gordy, 90 years old, is super-wealthy, to say the least. In case you don’t know, he’s one of the most successful record executives in the country. He’s also acted in movies, on the side.

He is reported to have a net worth of $400 million, which only means that he has no worries in terms of mortgage payments and electricity bills. Hey Gordy, can you pay my next utility bill?
George & Amal Clooney – $20 Million, London
Amal Clooney is a British lawyer who found herself as the first (and hopefully only) woman that George Clooney chose to marry, after a long period of bachelorhood. Their home shows that a fear of bankruptcy is not in their list of worries. George and Amal bought this $20-million Berkshire mansion back in 2014 but only actually moved in with their twins. The 9-bedroom estate has a cinema with 12 seats, a 60-foot pool, a pool house, an all-weather tennis court, nanny’s quarters (no surprise there), a hidden irrigation system, and an outdoor playground. Ugh!
Regis Philbin – $3 Million, Connecticut
Regis Philbin is best known for co-hosting ‘Live with Regis and Kelly.’ As you can imagine, he’s earned a pretty penny from his daytime TV career. But even though he certainly has enough money to purchase any home he wants, he chose to go with a rather modest home in Greenwich, Connecticut. The house was listed for some time, finally being sold for $3 million. The Philbins ended up buying another home less than two miles away from this one. They also have an apartment in Manhattan, so they clearly like to mark their territory in more than one state.

This over-the-top residence project took over three years to renovate until Williams finally moved in.

Roseanne Barr — Est. $1.78 Million, Hawaii
Roseanne Barr could have performed better in her career since she got fired for a racist tweet. However, that made very little difference to her overall standings as she’s been highly successful as an actress and a television personality during her entire career. Now, at 66 years of age, she isn’t really done with life yet because she’s got a lot of real estate properties to play around with. Of course, she won’t have to deal with bankruptcy any time soon because she’s got far too many for that to happen.

Although Katy Perry is now 34 years old and slowly giving way to younger talent in the realm of music, her work is still famous as ever and will probably remain that way for quite some time. There’s a long way to go for her before she even considers retirement, which is excellent for her adoring fans who simply can’t do without her music. Her songs like “Roar” and “Dark Horse” are prevalent across the globe.

He’s recently sold his house in Washington, and although it may not look like much, it covers an area of 3,000 square feet.

Just like his character, Ari Gold (Entourage), Jeremy Piven likes to live in style, and this would explain his $6.8 million glass home in Hollywood Hills.

The house has four bedrooms, five bathrooms, a floating staircase and a floating wooden bookshelf that separates the living room and the game rooms.

Dempsey originally paid $7 million on the property and then remodeled it to be more “homey.” Much like his Grey’s Anatomy character, he also has an Airstream trailer in the middle of a garden filled with flowers, vegetables, and herbs. Patrick must have had a great financial planning advisor to have kept his finances afloat after all these years. Apart from Grey’s Anatomy, he’s acted in movies like Enchanted from 2007 and Made of Honor from 2008. His success in acting is unique in that he’s been pretty consistent in an industry which isn’t patient at all and where actors have to face all sorts of politics and hardships getting their roles.

A castle fit for a queen. Heidi is American-German, and she wasn’t happy with a single career during her life. While most people get tired with a simple acting career, which isn’t so simple as compared to ordinary jobs, Heidi had to explore pretty much everything that the entertainment industry had to offer, including singing, fashion designing, writing, and of course, acting. She has become a judge for shows like Project Runway, and it’s clear she’s not waiting for retirement to start living her life.

Kylie is one of the most famous personalities in the world and has her signs all over pop culture, especially mainstream media. She’s even been on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which is probably one of the most-watched shows in history. While most young people are worrying about college at the age of 21, Kylie is handling her millions. She’s even got a house worth $3.3 million, and it’s one of the gorgeous buildings in all of existence. It’s also got three walk-in closets, but we were already expecting that from the house of such a huge celebrity.
Blake Shelton – $3 Million, Nashville
Country superstar and favorite “The Voice” coach has quite the bank account balance, which allowed him to share a dream home in Nashville with his ex-wife Country singer, Miranda Lambert.

After their divorce, they sold the house for nearly $3 Million, and Blake went on to build a Hawaiian-style getaway for his new leading lady, singer Gwen Stefani and her three sons at Oklahoma, where Blake has a 1,200-acre ranch.
Sylvester Stallone — Est. $10 Million, Beverly Hills
This massive property, which takes up almost 16,000 square feet, cost Sylvester $10 million back in 1998. It hasn’t been in the market since, but we’re sure that if it were, it’d be worth far more – perhaps even three times what it was back in the 90s. Sylvester rose to fame due to his excellent, action-packed movies which became extremely popular back in his day and are still relevant today, which is why everyone recognizes this man. Movies like Rocky and Rambo turned him into one of the richest men alive, and now he continues to live in luxury without ever having a fear of bankruptcy or financial problems which generally haunt men his age.

Much like his bigger than life persona, the house itself is spectacular. Everything about it screams “Money,” with a broad set of swimming pools, some hidden in a cave, some with waterfalls and over-the-top decorated man-cave-type rooms that include a few secret passageways.
Mandy Moore – $2.6 Million, Pasadena, California

He’s been putting smiles on people’s faces for years now and has been paid handsomely for it. He’s only at 45 years of age, so he had better get a proper financial planning advisor if he wants to keep his wealth for the rest of his life.
Justin Bieber – $20 Million, Hollywood Hills
Biebs has a history with the paparazzi, and he keeps canceling events because he wants some private alone time, so it is a bit surprising that he chose to live in a huge glasshouse. From almost every angle possible you can see mostly windows and privacy is not the first thing that comes in mind in this modern-glass-mansion. However, it is spacious with over 6,500 square feet, including six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a seven-car garage, and a gorgeous infinity pool. Although the house “only” costs $20 Million, which is something JB can definitely handle with an estimated net worth of over $200 Million, he prefers to rent the houses he lives in and this prime real-estate costs around $60,000 a month.

Cher — Est. $2.5 Million, Beverly Hills
The best thing about being a multimillionaire singer is that your financial planning advisor doesn’t let you take any unnecessary risks and only points you towards the best deals that you can possibly endure. Cher’s advisor pointed her towards Beverly Hills, and it was one of the best decisions that she could have made because that location is teeming with the most amazing houses in the entire country.

Former ‘Today Show’ co-host Ann Curry is a famous journalist and known for covering war zones and natural disasters in the news. After leaving NBC after 25 years, Curry founded her own media startup. She is still a host and anchor, interviewing essential personalities. Her distinguished career helped her earn well and invest in high-end properties.

Taylor Swift – $17 Million, Rhode Island

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West need no introduction; after all, they’re one of the most famous couples on earth today.

Just seven months after they sold it with an $8.8M profit! To Silicon Valley-based, Ukrainian philanthropist Marina Acton, who said at the time that she found the mansion creative and inspiring.

NFL Hall of Famer, Terry Bradshaw, has finally given us the inside look we’ve been waiting for, of his luxury ranch in Kamuela, Hawaii. The house has officially been put on the market with an asking price of 2.7 million dollars, which seems fair considering all of the amenities this house has. The incredible features of the ranch are making us wonder why he is even selling in the first place considering he will be leaving behind things such as a lap pool of 60 feet, two koi ponds, and even a waterfall entry! We’re eager to find out Bradshaw’s next move and see what can possibly come after a luxury ranch in Hawaii.
Jeff Franklin – $4 Million, San Francisco
If you grew up in the 90s, you probably dreamed about living in the Full House famous Tanner house in San Francisco. As luck has it, the show’s creator, Jeff Franklin, had the same dream and he decided to buy the house last year and restore it back to its 90s glory with the blue tiles and a red door. Although the house itself is smaller than as appeared on the show, it has its sentimental value and the price is not that bad. Jeff wasn’t done with Full House when the show ended and acted for Fuller House in 2016. He’s been an amazing actor throughout his life and has managed to accumulate a huge fan base over the years. Now that he’s around the age of 65, he’s well prepared for retirement whenever he chooses to go for it, although it looks like he’s so in love with his career that he’s not going for it anytime soon.

He’s not going into retirement quietly because he keeps turning up with his astonishing performances.

Jared is pretty serious about his career, and it shows.
Julia Roberts – $10 Million, Malibu
Julia Roberts is one of the most recognizable faces in showbiz due to her iconic roles in her incredible career. Her great looks can be attributed to her beauty routine and probably the stress-free life she lives from all of the top-notch health insurance plans that she has invested in. The Pretty Woman famed actress did what not many savvy real estate investors would even think about doing – buying two properties and then merging them into one. The new unit, an environment-friendly house, is valued at around $10 million, although we are quite sure that anybody who is a fan of a scenic landscape would happily shell out a few thousand dollars more for the breathtaking location of the property. The solar panels, the paintings, and even the boat decks at the backyard, all speak volumes about the 51-year-old’s refined taste and preferences. There’s also a rooftop balcony, which adds to the aesthetic.

Angelina Jolie – $24 Million, Los Feliz, California
Angelina Jolie is one of those actresses of substance who still doesn’t have a star to her name in Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, but we are all aware of the many talents she possesses both on and off the screen, plus we aren’t sure if she even remotely cares about that! What we’re interested in is her incredibly beautiful house, located in Los Feliz, California which she purchased for an estimated 24 million dollars. The estate sprawls across 2.1 acres and is in the gated community, Laughlin Park, which many other celebrities such as Natalie Portman, and more also call home.

Richard Gere – Est. $33 Million, Hamptons
The American actor, who was once often only referred to as the most eligible bachelor in Hollywood, impressed us big time when he starred in some of the most memorable faces in Hollywood history, such as Runaway Bride, An Officer, and a Gentleman, and of course, Pretty Woman, which he starred alongside Julia Roberts in. Richard recently sold off his sprawling Hamptons retreat, named Strongheart, for a staggering $33 million and guess who the buyer was? It was none other than television news anchor Matt Lauer. Although the asking price was somewhere around 36 million dollars, both agreed on 33 million dollars in the end. The 1902-built property overlooks the Peconic Bay and has got 12 bathrooms and 12 bedrooms! We guess the veteran actor has already improved his credit score with all the money he got by selling off the property.

Movies like Wild Things and Starship Troopers have really helped her rise through the ranks and boosted her career, and her house is what made her famous on the show, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Ted Turner — Est. $23.77 Million, St. Phillips Island
Most people are considered really rich if their own properties worth a few million. However, you’d be completely flabbergasted to see someone who owns a complete island. However, Ted Turner is one such person, and he’s held a large peninsula that covers up a massive area of 4,680 acres! Imagine having this as your own vacation destination where you could bring all your friends every year. Ted’s a huge media mogul, so we’re not surprised that he’s got such large properties under his belt, especially since he’s got a net worth of $2.2 billion! He’s 80 years of age now, and we’re not sure when he’s considering retirement, but we suspect it might be sooner rather than later.
Sandra Bullock – $1.5 Million, Tybee Island, Georgia
Simply put, Sandra Bullock is a Hollywood icon and legend. From starring in a wide variety of films like Speed, Miss Congeniality, The Blind Side, and more, it is no wonder that she has a private house on Tybee Island, in Georgia.

Not only is the design of the house, one of beauty, but also a veranda that overlooks the water and is only steps away from the soft sandy beach. And good news!

It was established in 1998 and owned by Vanna White and her husband up until 2004. Owning such a large and beautiful house only shows the success that Vanna has reached over the years.

Doris has taken retirement and has now turned her estate into a hotel named Cypress Inn, and the average price of a standard room is between $311 to $389 per night.

On the personal front, she was married to actor William R. Moses but had to take the services of a family law attorney just ten years into their marriage.

One of the coolest investments we have seen in recent times, we would say.
Emilia Clarke – Est. $4.6 Million, California
The Game of Thrones star bowled us over with her portrayal of Daenerys Targaryen in the HBO show. She made her debut on television with Doctors, a soap opera in 2009. The English actress caught everyone’s fancy with her performance in Triassic Attack, a 2010 television film. Her real-life nest in Venice, California is nowhere close to the sets on the show as the residence is sunny and bright and boasts of a stunning pool, a lounge area, three bathrooms, two bedrooms, and a master bedroom with a dream closet. The stunning property is spread across a total area of 2800 square feet, and Clarke had to supposedly shell out an estimated $4.6 million from her savings bank account. Worth every penny, we say!

The formal living room has a fireplace and is surrounded by water, and you can access it through a glass bridge. The private bedroom has walls of glass and boasts of two marble baths. We don’t think she will list the luxury pad anytime soon.
Scott Mcgillivray – Est. $2 Million, Toronto
The HGTV host, along with his better half, Sabrina, moved into a completely new nest in Canada recently and even documented the entire remodeling on Moving the McGillivrays, a show which went on air on HGTV Canada.

The property boasts a panoramic view of the Pacific, a gym, a media room, a sitting room, a large fireplace, and last but not least, almost 70 feet of frontage to the beach.
