Here’s a look at six amazing celebrity homes for sale right now.
No fewer than two mansions formerly owned by Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony are currently for sale. In addition to a $17 million, a nine-bedroom estate in the gated California community of Hidden Hills, the former couple’s home on Long Island’s Gold Coast is also on the market. Listed by Dolly Lenz Real Estate, the asking price is $9.495 million. That’s the price after a recent cut—not long ago, it was listed at $12 million.
Lopez and Anthony lived in the home until announcing their separation in 2011. The compound, which consists of two homes and a total of 10 bedrooms on eight acres, is now listed under the ownership of Anthony, or rather his birth name, Marco Muniz. The main house is a 16-room red-brick mansion built-in 1941. The guest cottage is a five-bedroom, 4,000-square-foot Colonial.
In the main residence, the living room and family room are both double-height—fitting given that Jordan and many of his pals are oversized athletes. For that matter, many of the home’s features were designed with all manner of players in mind.
The original doors from the Chicago Playboy Mansion mark the entrance to the “Gentleman’s Retreat” area, where there are card tables, a cigar room, and a wet bar. The home also boasts a wine cellar with space for 500+ bottles, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a movie theater, an indoor tennis court, and a golf putting green. Meanwhile, for the ladies, the estate includes a “full-service beauty salon.”
Poised on the Wilmington River with 300 feet of water frontage, the estate known as Riverbend has been described by listing agent Seabolt Brokers as “the most significant offering in Savannah, Ga.” and “truly its own private resort.”
Owned by Paula Deen, the TV chef and restaurateur who came under fire for racist comments in 2013, the 5.5-acre property features a 14,500-square-foot main home, two guest cottages, and a 10,000-square-foot barn with three bedrooms and an eight-car garage. Asking price: $12.5 million.
Billed as the “Motown Mansion” by realtor Keller Williams, this 2.2-acre estate in Detroit features a 10-bedroom, 10,500-square-foot Italian Renaissance main residence, plus an adjoining 4,400-square-foot pool house.
Motown Records founder Berry Gordy owned the property from 1967 until 2002, and the likes of Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder, and the Jackson 5 have been guests. It is listed at $1.295 million.
Let’s cut right to the chase: This place has its own doggie hotel! Owned by Denise Richards, the actress and ex-wife of Charlie Sheen, this six-bedroom, 1.1-acre property in the Hidden Hills gated community in southern California feature an onyx fireplace, cathedral ceilings, and two pools, including a grotto, waterfall, and “beach” entryway.
But anyone who looks at the home will be talking about the pet hotel—a private kennel custom-made for allowing dogs to feel right at home. It’s being listed by The Altman Brothers for $7.749 million.
For a mere $23.777 million, you can be the owner of an entire private island—specifically, St. Phillips Island, a 4,680-acre retreat outside of historic Beaufort, S.C., reached only by boat. The listing from realty company Plantation Services states that media mogul Ted Turner purchased the island—now a Registered Natural Landmark—in 1979.
The property comes with two residences, and an agreement with The Nature Conservancy stipulates that the owner may add up to 10 more residences on the island, which has its own water and power supply.
Currently dubbed the “Sycamore Valley Ranch,” this epic 2,700-acre estate in Los Olivos, Calif., 40 miles outside Santa Barbara, is world-famous as the “Neverland Ranch” long owned by Michael Jackson.
The asking price is a cool $100 million, according to Hilton & Hyland and Sotheby’s, which share a joint listing of the property. The main residence is a 12,500-square-foot building in French-Normandy style, and there are a total of 22 buildings on the grounds, including three guest homes and a 5,500-square-foot movie theatre with a stage.
