Homes of the rich and famous


Life is hectic when you’re a celebrity – there’s long hours spent on the film set or at the recording studio, endless beauty appointments, countless shopping sprees, gruelling hours spent sweating it out with a personal trainer, plus not to mention endless hours of partying!

So every celebrity needs a sanctuary they can go home to and sit back and relax in after a hard day’s work being rich and famous. And these celebs are doing a pretty good job of it…

Courteney Cox and David Arquette
Listed at: US$33.5 million

Courteney Cox & David Arquette's Home

It’s difficult for your everyday person to imagine why anyone would give up a Malibu home with 80 feet of beachfront, but surely Cox and Arquette must have their reasons. One could be the US$20+ million profit they stand to make if their asking price is met. The couple paid US$11 million in 2001 for the four-bedroom, five-bathroom John Lautner-designed home.

Justin Timberlake & Cameron Diaz
Paid: US$16.9 million

Justin Timberlake & Cameron Diaz's Hawaii pad

Built on over 100 feet of Oahu beachfront, Timberlake and Diaz’s Hawaii compound spreads across 1.5 acres on the windward side of the island. Between the main house and the outbuildings, there are 12 bedrooms, nine bathrooms and over 11,000 square feet of living space – which is a good thing: The couple, who have since split, will need all that space to avoid each other.

Ellen DeGeneres
Listed for: US$24 million

Talk show host and comedienne DeGeneres bought this Montecito, California, spread in October for US$16.9 million. It boasts four bedrooms and eight bathrooms and sits on four acres with a pool, tennis court and both mountain and ocean views.

After separating from his wife Kimora Lee Simmons, hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons put his 10-bedroom, eight-bathroom house in Saddle River, New Jersey, on the market. The 35,000-square-foot mansion has a movie theatre, an expansive home gym and both indoor and outdoor swimming pools – what a crib!

The sizable 14,500-square-foot interior has a home theatre, sound studio and gym to complement the two outdoor pools.

Kanye West

He may be proud of his Chicago roots, but bad-boy rapper Kanye West seems to have settled in well to luxury L.A. living. He splurged around US$7 million for this Beverly Hills spread. The 3,300-square-foot home has six bedrooms and four bathrooms, an acre of space and a pool.

Elton John
Paid: US$2.5 million
