Most of you are likely to, at one point in time, have watched an episode of MTV’s Cribs, where they take viewers on a tour of elaborate celebrity homes. As much as the houses may fill us with envy, we still can’t seem to get enough of those fabulous mansions. From Brad and Angelina’s French Chateau to Oprah Winfrey’s mega-mansion, OROGOLD brings you some of the most extravagant celebrity homes.
Brad and Angelina’s French Chateau
Chateau Miraval, in the south of France, was bought in 2008 by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Tucked away in a vineyard estate that was built in the 17th Century, the chateau has 35 rooms, one of which is a legendary recording studio, as well as landscaped gardens, fountains, its very own moat, and its own private chapel, where the couple had a secret wedding with their four children in attendance. Among the vast grounds, measuring 1200 acres, lies an olive grove, a working award-winning vineyard, pine forests, terraced hillsides and a private lake.
Oprah Winfrey’s Mega-Mansion
Although Oprah may not be making new episodes of her talk show, the 25 years that it aired, and the millions in royalties that still follow, mean that she was able to invest in a gorgeous Californian mansion in Montecito. The 85 million dollar property, which boasts both ocean and mountain views, has 6 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, a wine cellar and ten fireplaces. It also has both an indoor and outdoor movie theatre, as well as a barn and a guesthouse, complete with its very own swimming pool. The estate has even more, with tennis courts, ponds, orchards and a fish-filled lake.
Tiger Woods’ Custom-Designed Mansion
Located on Jupiter Island, Florida, the home of Tiger Woods and his family was custom-design for them, with their privacy and protection in mind, and is surrounded by tall trees that envelope the buildings within. In addition to the bedrooms, the main house also has a cinema, a games area for the children, and a wine cellar. This may not seem that extravagant, but the beauty of the property lies in the grounds, which feature a golf training studio, a boathouse, a large guesthouse, a tennis court, a diving pool, a running track and a lap lane, as well as 2 docks for Tiger Woods’ 155 foot yacht. If this wasn’t enough, there is even an exact replica of a major golf course right in the house’s backyard, making it truly a dream property for any sports enthusiast.
Celebrities are known for their extravagant homes, and they usually have more than one. From a French chateau in a sprawling vineyard to a custom-designed family mansion, these million dollar properties are some of the most extravagant celebrity homes in the world. Although it may bring out the envy in many of us, many celebrities, such as Oprah and Angelina Jolie, are known for their generosity, giving back to their loyal fans that have supported them throughout their careers and helped them to get to where they are today.
