Someone like Mark Zuckerberg had to buy his neighbor’s houses all in the name of privacy. Therefore most celebrities tend to spend a lot of money when it comes to their homes as such homes are mostly located in luxurious communities. We are therefore going to have a look at the 10 most expensive celebrities’ homes in the world. Which celebrity do you think has the most expensive home?
10. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Brentwood compound – Price: $23,000,000
The man who was paid was paid $21,429 per word for his role in Terminator 2: Judgement Day is on the list for having the tenth most expensive house as a celebrity in the world. His Brentford compound cost a whopping $23 million.

On the list for owning one of the most expensive houses in the world when it comes to celebrities is Jennifer Lopez. Her Bel Air house is estimated to be valued around $28 million. This is an estate that has been in existence since 1940 and was built by one Samuel Marx.
What makes the Bel Air estate unique is that there is a manmade swimming pool, an amphitheatre in the lawn, and many lavish rooms which fuse modernist colours with classic styles. Its back garden is an exotic paradise of greenery and small outdoor retreats, perfect for entertaining.

7. Mark Zuckerberg’s multiple San Francisco homes – Price: $30 million
If you’re the founder of Facebook and one of the richest men in the world, what more will you expect other than living in a beautiful home and great environment. To secure his privacy the more, he bought 3 of his neighbours’ houses for close to $30 million.
His main home is still gorgeous though, with 17,000+ square feet of grounds, a beautiful pool and spacious, minimal rooms. Therefore the list wouldn’t be complete without his homes.
6. Jerry Seinfeld’s Hamptons retreat – Price: £32 million
Jerry Seinfeld’s Hamptons retreat is on the list as well and his house is valued at more than $30 million. Despite it being gargantuan and having its own baseball field, Jerry and his wife still insisted on describing their home as ‘laid back’ in a piece for In Style magazine in 2013.
5. Brad and Angelina’s Italian villa – Price: $40 million
It is believed Brad and Angelina bought this beautiful home in Verona, Italy, as a holiday home in 2010.Its 18,000 square feet, 15 bedrooms, cinema and two swimming pools.
4. Hugh Hefner’s infamous Playboy Mansion – Price: $54 million
12 bedrooms, 21 bathrooms, and 20,0000 square feet – the Mansion was built in 1927 in an English Manor style in the Holmby Hills area of California. Inside is everything you could ever wish for, a wine cellar, tennis court, gym, catering kitchen, and it even has a zoo license.
It cost a whopping $54 million but it has recently been listed for sale at a huge price of $200 million but on condition that the buyer must still harbour the old Hugh till he dies. He is no more now and so I think the buyer is free now.
3. Oprah Winfrey’s Santa Barbara Mansion – Price: $85 million
Oprah Winfrey’s mansion is on the list as well. Her Santa Barbara Mansion is believed to be valued at $85 million. It is believed she reportedly spent the same amount she paid for the house on renovations, and each room is grand and traditional in its design. There are more fireplaces than bedrooms, an orchard, man made lake, a pool, and a guesthouse bigger than most people’s actual houses.
2. Bill & Melinda Gates’ Washington Pad – Price: $123.5 million
Bill Gates has named his Washington home Xanadu 2.0, and it’s taken him 7 years to be happy with it and its many renovations. It’s not quite at the top of the most expensive celebrity homes list though.
