Three Gorgeous Celebrity Homes

Many of us can only dream of the luxurious lifestyle enjoyed by the rich and famous; their designer wardrobes and luxury car collections inspire sighs of envy, while most celebrity homes seem like endless real-estate playgrounds in comparison to our own properties!
As envious as we might be, we can’t resist an inside look at the latest celebrity home on the market, and all the extravagant luxuries it has to offer…

In recent months, we’ve seen a number of London-born celebrities buying homes overseas as they work towards breaking into the American market; on the other hand, the UK has seen its fair share of big celebrity names leaving the bright lights of Tinseltown to settle in London. If you’ve been looking at high-end property for sale in Hammersmith, there’s a chance you’ll end up socialising with some rather famous neighbours!

Let’s take a look at some of the most elaborate and expensive celebrity homes currently making headlines:

Cheryl Cole  

UK pop star Cheryl Cole already owns a luxury apartment in Beverly Hills, but the British celebrity has been spotted house-hunting in Los Angeles recently, and rumour has it Cheryl now has her sights set on a luxurious 6000 sq ft home with a $5.5 million price tag!

This celebrity home has six bedrooms, four bathrooms, a games room, fireplaces, a swimming pool and a number of balconies overlooking the city. The beautiful celebrity singer was raised in a Newcastle council estate along with four siblings, so she’s had to work hard for that luxury celebrity home and it’s safe to say she’s earned it!

Naomi Campbell’s boyfriend, Russian billionaire Vladimir Doronin, has offered the iconic supermodel an eco-mansion designed to fulfil her every wish and whim. This luxury celebrity home will be built on Isla Playa de Cleopatra, an island off the coast of Turkey. Naomi’s glass-domed luxury home will boast 25 bedrooms and a sprawling landscaped terrace, and will be completely self-sufficient with eco-friendly energy, heating and water solutions.

That’s not all; architect Luis de Garrido will be designing the unique celebrity home to resemble the Eye of Horus, an ancient Egyptian symbol of royalty and protection.

While these UK celebrities are buying and building homes abroad, A-listers from across the pond are falling for luxury properties in London; most notably, Hollywood couple Angelina recently added a new celebrity home to their extensive collection when they bought a £10 million Richmond mansion.

The property, named Whornes Place, has already served as a holiday home to numerous celebrities, and the Richmond area is home to so many famous faces it’s earned the nickname “Hollywood-on-Thames”! Brangelina have fallen in love with the neighbourhood and their new celebrity home, which combines tasteful antique d├ęcor with modern luxuries, including an indoor swimming pool.

Whether they’re settling into a historic London mansion or snapping up ultra-modern property for sale in Saint Tropez, these stars will doubtless be enjoying the ultimate in comfort and luxury once they move into their new celebrity homes!
