Calling a celebrity home cool only works when they have 13 fireplaces, a bowling alley, two pools, and several other features that most people go their entire life without.
Imagine living your life but with millions of fans and boat loads of cash. Isn’t it lovely? But what do you do with all that money after you buy the essentials? You buy extra’s.
Celebrities live in a life of luxury. They own boats, jewelry, cars, and other extravagant items but the most important thing every celebrity can own is a home. Not just a home, a ridiculously expensive house with more amenities than a New York hotel.
Take a look at the 25 Coolest Celebrity Homes. Enjoy.
25. C.C. Sabathia (pictured above)
C.C. Sabathia’s home in Alpine, New Jersey features a full-court indoor basketball court with an electronic scoreboard and parquet floors. It’s nicer than most high school gyms in the states. It also features a his/hers beauty salon, a home theater room that would make AMC jealous, a full fledged castle bed for his daughter, and a game room stacked with all the awesome you can think of.
24. Steve Finley
Since we are talking about MLB players, let’s stick to another one. Former MLB star Steven Finley is married to interior designer Amy Finley so their house looks like something from The Sims. But he makes the list for his outdoor home theater complete with a 165 inch wall area set up for viewings fit for up to 100 guests.
23. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian
Bel-Air is easily the most overpriced and ridiculous vain community in the US. So it is only natural Kim Kardashian and Kanye West would buy a home there. It’s a gigantic 9,000 square foot $11 million home with a tennis court, elevator, basketball court, multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, bowling alley, and a hair and makeup salon. When you have your own private salon, the word cool doesn’t even begin to describe it.
22. Matt Damon’s Miami Home
Most celebrities don’t own just one home, they own several. Matt Damon owns more than enough but the one that stands out is his $20 million Miami house that features an outdoor bar and patio overlooking Biscayne Bay and a private pool. It also has its’ very own two bedroom guest house for when friends like Jimmy Kimmel stop by.
A typical home features around 2,500 to 3,500 square feet of living space. Rihanna’s $12 million Pacific Palisades home has 6,000 square feet, outside. She probably doesn’t even need to spend time outside on her private sun deck thanks to her constant touring and traveling around the world. The elevated pool deck and spa, however, is the biggest draw to this shockingly awesome celebrity home.
20. Jennifer Lopez
What is it about fireplaces that people love so much? I have only ever needed one, J-Lo’s $18 million Hamptons home has seven, two of them outside. Add in the heated marble floors in the bathrooms, library with white oak paneling, and dockage on Mecox Bay and you have yourselves a cool ass house.
19. Chris Evans
Just because someone has money, doesn’t mean they have to spend it. Chris Evans, aka Captain America, has enough money from his Marvel adventures that he could buy several homes that cost as much as his $3.5 Million Hollywood Hills estate. But the coolest part of the 1940’s era residence is the open rooms, the Italian marble, the view, and the overall feel of the home. It is normal, compared to the others on this list, yet it deserves a spot.
18. Tom Brady
Dude has a bridge that goes over the custom built moat surrounding one side of his $20 million home in California. If being married to one of the hottest women of all time isn’t enough, this guy goes out and builds a 22,000 square foot mall of a home with its own resort style swimming pool. All it takes it money, right?
17. John Travolta
Having a moat is great but having your own runway for your very own plane collection. John Travolta loves to fly so it is only natural he would spend all his money building his own airport for a home. From one end of the property to the other, it measures 1.5 miles to allow for the full-fledged airplane runway where planes can take off and land.
16. Halle Berry’s Malibu Beach House
Halle Berry is about as beautiful as they come and her Malibu beach house is just about the same. It is a gigantic beachfront home with more windows than Microsoft in 1999. One of the bedrooms faces a sliding wall that opens up to the ocean with a deck. Oh and if you need to borrow sugar from a neighbor, not a problem at all just as long as Bruce Willis is home.
15. Barbra Streisand
In Malibu, see above, homes are worth more than the person living in it. Barbra Streisand, however, takes the term awesome to a whole new level with her enormous spread that features a private smoking room and more bedrooms than a Chicago Hilton. But the greatest feature is the street of shops where she stores all her old items as opposed to just storing them in a basement. How clever is that? It looks like a mall but with all her stuff spread out over the different shops. Amazing.
14. Will Smith
What happened to the kid from West Philly? He built a 25,000 square foot home in Malibu set with a private state of the art music studio, basketball court, meditation room, tennis courts, and three separate golf holes. Will Smith is one of the biggest movie stars in the world and this house reminds us all.
