A celebrity home with a pool isn’t anything special at first glance, but wait ’till you get a look at these jaw-dropping properties that were formally owned by some of Hollywood’s biggest names. If you’re searching for a dream home, and have a few million or so to spend, you may still even have the chance to nab yourself one of these breathtaking abodes:
1. Tommy Lee
Rocker and founding member of the heavy metal band Motley Crue, Tommy Lee listed his rocker pad back in 2017 for $6 million. After no luck in finding a buyer, however, Lee changed agents and re-listed the property for $4.6 million in 2018, which is the price it remains at today. The 10,000 square foot home – which is fit for any rock star – boasts 6-bedrooms and 8-bathrooms.
Notable features include a theater, a piano-shaped swimming pool, an indoor spa, a retractable glass roof, 2 kitchens, and a 2,000-sq. ft. recording studio. The palm trees that surround the property also give the modern-style home an almost tropical vibe.
2. Alicia Keys
When Alicia Keys and Swizz Beats bought Eddie Murphy’s New Jersey mansion in 2013, it underwent some major renovations, including the addition of an entire wing for artwork. The compound has 8-bedrooms, 14-bathrooms, and even two elevators for easy moving through the various levels.
Luxury amenities include an indoor swimming pool, a movie theater, a two-lane bowling alley, a professional recording studio, and a gym. The asking price for the 25,000 square foot property – which has been on the market for a few years now – stands at $14.9 million.
3. Jason Derulo
After initially putting this contemporary-style mansion on the market for $2.9 million, and then taking it off, singer Jason Derulo listed his home on the market again for $2.25 million in 2015 and then was eventually able to sell the property for an even lower $1.9 million the following year. The home boasts 5-bedrooms, 9-bathrooms a gourmet kitchen, and sits on 2.5 acres of land adjacent to a golf club.
Some notable features include a waterfall, fitness center, swimming pool, and an electric-gated fence. According to Curbed, Derulo bought the 11,500 square foot property for an approximate $1.75 million back in 2012.
4. Keith Richards
Formally owned by Keith Richards and Patti Hansen, this Fifth Avenue apartment offers unbelievable skyline views. The apartment has 4-bedrooms, 4-baths, and a master suite with two walk-in closets.
The couple listed the penthouse in 2016 for $12.2 million, but would end up selling the place for $9.95 million after being unable to unload the unit for their initial asking price. The space is dramatically white excluding the dark hardwood floors and features a soaking tub and stylish kitchen.
5. Britney Spears
Miss Spears decided to bid farewell to her stunning mansion, situated in Thousand Oaks, after buying a larger one just a few miles away. The pop princess listed the Spanish-style home for just short of $9 million in 2016 and then sold it a year later for $7 million.
The spacious 8,456 square foot home features 5-bedrooms and 7-baths. Luxury amenities include a massive kitchen with 2 islands, a wine cellar, a wet bar, a theater, a game room, an infinity-edge pool, as well as a dressing room with a chandelier and jetted tub.
6. Tom Cruise
Though Tom Cruise’s estate comes with a hefty price tag, let’s face it – it’s definitely not for nothing! The property is situated in Telluride and sits on around 300 acres of land. Some features to the 10,000 square foot cabin-style mansion include 4-bedrooms, 9-bathrooms, and a private elevator.
Riding stables, a helipad, lush forest trails, and a 3-bedroom guesthouse can also be found on the grounds of the estate. According to CNN Money, the home was purchased by the star nearly 20 years ago when he was married to Nicole Kidman and he spent years turning the home into a true masterpiece of rustic living. The property has been sitting on the market for years now with an asking price of $59 million.
