Top 10 Crazy Celebrity Mansions

6. Donald Trump

As ostentatious as you’d expect, this sprawling building covers 80,000m2 and was a snip at $41m. It looks like a massive conference hall and is decorated in a suitably gaudy fashion – 24 carat gold bathroom fixtures (in the 22 bathrooms), more marble than an Italian quarry, 48 car garage… you get the idea. Trump sold it to a Russian oligarch for $100m in 2010.


7. Celine Dion

Celine Dion’s water-park in her backyard, has caused local water shortages, at one point using all the Floridian island’s fresh water supply. Costing $20m, it uses 6.5 million gallons of water a year. Not particularly eco-friendly.


8. Oprah Winfrey

Don’t you just hate house guests? They’re always in the way and under your feet. Wouldn’t it be easier for them to be next door? That’s just what Oprah decided to do in the Bahamas, when she bought the house next door as a guest suite.


9. Neverland Ranch

One of the most famous homes in pop history (together with Elvis’ Graceland), the ranch itself isn’t actually that outlandish. The grounds, however, feature a zoo, a fairground, a treehouse, a train station and a locomotive to get around on. There is also a library with 10,000 books.


10. Drake

If Disney made a Bavarian hunting lodge, it would probably look like rapper/singer Drake’s house in Hidden Hills, California. Along with all the trappings you’d expect from a lavish home like this, its grotto style swimming pool with wet bars would rival the Playboy Mansion’s famous grotto.
