Celebrities like to flash the cash. Whether it’s on designer clothes and watches or even fancy cars, some of them have splashed out on luxurious – and expensive – properties worth an eye-watering amount. But which are the most expensive? And which celebrities currently live in them? Read on to find out.
Set in Washington State, tech mogul Bill Gates spent decades – and millions of dollars – creating his ‘Xanadu 2.0’ estate. At 66,000 square feet, it includes 24 bathrooms, a theatre, a trampoline room and even a man-made pond where he can fish. And if you get hungry, try cooking up a storm in one of his six – yes, we said six – kitchens! Gates actually bought the property for just $2m in 1988 – and now, it’s worth an estimated $127m.
The Queen of American Talk Shows, Oprah Winfrey’s $90m estate is nestled in Montecito, an uber-exclusive and unincorporated area of Santa Barbara, California. The grand house – which sits on 42 acres of land – was bought in 2001 for $50m and features a Koi pond, home movie theatre and wine cellar, as well as a huge gourmet kitchen. Montecito is a celebrity favourite and is now the American home of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
The proud owners of a stunning French chateau in the South of the country, this A-list ex-couple purchased the lavish estate in 2008 – and even made it the location of their highly publicised wedding. With around 1,200 acres of land, the chateau’s construction is traced back to the 17th century and also includes a moat and private lake, olive groves and a vineyard.
The late James Bond star had a notoriously lavish home in the beautiful French city of Nice, with belle-epoque inspired design and a natural Riveria feel. The six-story home, which overlooks the Mediterranean Sea, includes a 10,764 square foot home, as well as a rooftop terrace, swimming pool and extensive gardens.
