Check out these incredible celebrity homes that cost $2 million to $50 million. Looks like George got good deal and Oprah is living in paradise.
Last month we showed you homes listed for under $10 thousand. Now it’s time to look at the 11 most expensive homes on the US market!
11. This residence was once a boutique hotel and was converted into luxury condos in the 1950s. $95 million gets you 15 rooms in this Sherry-Netherland building. Remember, this is the cheapest home on the list. It’s a bargain!
10. Talk about another bargain! This New York Bloomberg Tower duplex is only $98 million which is a $17 million price decrease since last year.
9. How about a quaint Southampton home with some acreage? Here it is! And for a measly $98 million. This estate was once owned by the Woolworth family and Edmund C. Lynch. With it you also get an extra 15 acres, you know, just in case you want to add an addition.
8. This seven bedroom Mediterranean home has its own commercial pizza kitchen and a staircase that leads you to the beach. What more could you need?
7. Talk about a view. Why is it so magnificent you ask? Because this penthouse is the highest terrace residence in the US!
6. This 16,000 square foot historic mansion surrounded by 47 acres is for sale for $100 million, but there’s a twist. You can only move in after the current resident dies.
5. These views are magnificent. This Martha’s Vineyard home is situated on 314 acres that include 1,200 feet of private shoreline and a 35 acre freshwater pond.
4. How about a private island in the Florida Keys? Well, here it is! And only a 10 minute helicopter ride from Miami’s South Beach. Where is the helipad? Oh, you can just use the tennis courts.
3. This beautiful Palace of Versailles style residence was once home to Wall Stress investor and Florida Panthers owner, Vincent Viola. It is 16,000 square feet and has an expected monthly mortgage payment of $444,000.
2. Of course, this wouldn’t be a top 11 without Beverly Hills making the list. This stunning home was where the Kennedys spent their honeymoon in the 1950s. Its listing price has been all over the place starting at $165 million in 2010 then dropping to $95 million and is now back up to $135 million.
1. Number one goes to this $150 million dollar listing in Holmby Hills, California. This one you have to see to believe.
