When it comes to less is more and discretion, many celebrities opt for over-the-top and luxury instead. This can’t be truer than when you take a look at the homes that many celebrities build and live in. The typical home for a non-celebrity is about 2,000 square feet. This allows for both function and a little extra space, but many celebrities live in homes that are more than 4 times the size of a traditional and sensible abode.
In the world of celebrity homes, there are still a few that are even larger and more outrageous than the rest:
Bill Gates is one of the richest men in the entire world, so it is no surprise that he has a home that matches his wealth. It features a 60 ft. swimming pool, but also has a music system that plays underwater. Guests in the home of Bill Gates are also treated like royalty and allowed to wear a pin that changes the temperature music and lighting of each room as you make your way around the residence. This means that your experience inside the home of Bill Gates is completely customized. There is also always room at the dinner table with more than 24 seats. The cost of Bill Gates home is $147 million and is about 66,000 feet in size.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
When it comes to normal or moderate spending, you do not think of Kanye and Kim. Kanye and Kim are popular celebrities that have taste and style to match their high maintenance personalities. Security is at the core of what Kim and Kanye designed and have only a single entrance that is flanked with armed security 24/7 presumably to keep the paparazzi at bay. A complete hair salon and makeup studio is within the home to help Kim look glamorous each day and Kanye has his own music studio to help home create the latest rap hits. This home has a price tag of over $11 million and is about 9,000 feet in size.
Oprah Winfrey built her own media empire and she also built a home to match. Her house is 23,000 feet and costs upwards of $85 million. It features an amazing floor plan complete with 6 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms and 10 fireplaces.
Celebrities live different lives and reside in different homes than ordinary people.
