Our celebrity pad articles showcase photos of the exterior, interiors and grounds. Interiors include photos of celebrity kitchens, living rooms, bedrooms bathrooms, garages plus those fun rooms most of us don't have such as wine cellars, home theaters, wet bars, libraries, elaborate home offices, huge foyers, guest houses, home gyms with spa features such as a sauna, hot tub, steam room, elevator and game rooms.
Outside, these estates (often gated) feature infinity pools, beautifully manicured gardens, large hedges, expansive decks and patios, outdoor kitchens, basketball and tennis courts, a private beach and/or incredible views.
Some of these houses are as they were when built while others have undergone extensive renovations.

Which is the best celebrity house?
The nicest celebrity house is a personal opinion. Browse them above and see which is your favorite. My personal favorite, and it’s not an easy choice, is probably Alicia Keys’ “Razor House” in La Jolla, CA. Alicia bought this house for $20.8 million. Built in 2007, it’s waterfront (Pacific Ocean) and is 10,000 square feet.
Can you drive by celebrity homes if they're in the area?
Yes, you can drive by celebrity houses as long as they reside on public roads. If in a gated community you won’t be able to. Some towns offer “maps of the stars’ houses” like the one pictured here. However, you can’t drive or walk onto their property. That’s trespassing (unless you’re invited of course).
How do you find celebrity homes?
Most articles online showcasing celeb houses do not include their address. Your best bet if in southern California is to buy a map to the stars’ homes.
How big are houses owned by celebrities?
Like price, homes owned by celebs range a great deal from under 1,000 square feet to more than 30,000 square feet. The most common size falls in the 5,000 sq. ft. to 10,000 sq. ft. Keep in mind that many celebs own apartments which are typically smaller and hence skew down the average house size.
