If You Have Several Million Dollars to Spend, Why Not Buy a Celebrity Home?
Jennifer Aniston is close to purchasing this penthouse in the West Village in New York for a measly $14.95 million. The duplex has a baby nursery, a staircase out of a grand Hollywood mansion, and two outdoor rooftop patios under a water tower that’s encased in brick to make it look like a castle.
Mr. Awesome Twitterer put his uber-modern bachelor pad in LA on the market for $3.995 million. With a shower like that, how could you not want to offer less than the asking price???
Dancing Queen Tom Brady and his super model wife Gisele are building a 22,000 square foot home in California. 22,000 square feet. For three people. Makes total sense.
The angry driver known as Nicolas Cage has finally sold his Bel-Air mansion, originally on the market in 2007 for $35 million, for $9.95 million. That's a pretty insane price drop. I guess even celebrities aren't untouchable when it comes to the recession. The house was previously owned by Dean Martin.
Courtney Cox and David Arquette's home in Malibu recently sold for $33.5 million, which Arquette then immediately blew on booze and stippers.
The doozy award has to go to Tiger Woods. He just purchased a $50 million estate on Juniper Island, FL, that boasts a 6,400-square-foot gym/media room/bar, an elevator, a reflecting pond and a lap pool, and a practice facility (which has multiple grass types). Apparently Tiger is unhappy with his golf swing and is looking forward to being able to practice 24-7. Sounds exactly like the type of lifestyle a father of two (three? four?) should have.
