Let’s dream big shall we? Here are some luxury celebrity homes, their estimated value and their eccentric features. Brace yourselves.
Will Smith – Malibu Estate, approx $20,000,000
The Fresh Prince certainly lives fresh. His family residence in Malibu spans an estimated 22,000 square feet, including a recording studio, tennis courts, golf course, basketball court and swimming pool. What more could you expect from a man who has successfully carved his career in music, film and television? Many have tried and failed, but Will Smith has become a household name in each of these fields.
Jerry Seinfeld – Hamptons Mansion, approx $32,000,000
Comedy is a funny business, and a lucrative one too. The star and showrunner for the eponymous TV series, Jerry Seinfeld’s Hamptons mansion boasts its own baseball field. Interestingly, it was previously owned by none other than Billy Joel! If those walls could talk…
Michael Jackson – Neverland, approx $100,000,000
You cannot have a list of celebrity homes without the inclusion of Neverland. A veritable toyshop of features, this 3,000 acre property has amusement rides, a petting zoo, an arcade and even a train station! Having falling into disrepair after Michael Jackson’s death, the property became derelict and subject to many incidents of urban exploration. It is now being restored for posterity by Michael Jackson’s family estate. At an estimated value of $100 million, it is surely the biggest contender on our list.
Billy Connolly – Candacraig House, approx £3,000,000
Closer to home, Billy Connolly recently sold his quasi-castle, dubbed ‘Candacraig House’ in Aberdeenshire. Having played host to the likes of Judi Dench, Eric Idle and Robin Williams, there’s no doubt this castle has a few stories to tell. Now in private hands, the Candacraig House will forever be tailed by the Big Yin’s laughter.
