When building your first high-end home, you probably have some idea of what you want. But if you’re not sure just how big to go, look no further than these homes from some of the richest celebrities in the world for inspiration.
Kim and Kanye West
When it comes to sleek home design, these two spent a very long time building their dream home from scratch. With its minimalist, white and beige design, the $60 million mansion is as unique as Kanye himself. Off the traditional path, their home might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but they tend to set trends, not follow them.
Oprah’s $165 million mansion in Montecito California is named “The Promised Land” for good reason. The 23,000-square-foot property features a Neo-Georgian style, six bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, a wine cellar, a library, a theatre, 10 fireplaces and a gourmet kitchen.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s Bel-Air home features 30,000 square feet, four pools, a spa and wellness center, a media room, and windows and glass walls made of bulletproof glass, as well as a full basketball court. With its monolithic style, the $88 million mansion is good enough for the beloved Beyoncé and her family.
When Taylor Swift bought her Westerly Rhode Island mansion for $17 million back in 2013, she paid for it with cash. The 11,000-square-foot property was built in 1930, sitting on 700 feet of shoreline with spectacular views of Little Narragansett Bay. It has no less than eight bedrooms, eight fireplaces, and, of course, the pool she’s known for throwing epic pool parties at.
