Jennifer Aniston ($35 million, Beverly Hills, CA)
“Friends” actress Jennifer Aniston sold her Beverly Hills estate called “Ohana” in 2011 for a cool $35 million. The property was originally built in the 1970s by architect Harold W. Levitt. Aniston worked with designer Stephen Shadley to revamp the home into a Balinese-inspired tropical escape.
Located in Trousdale Estates, the 10,000-sq. ft. home features expansive views of Los Angeles and indoor-outdoor living elements, including bedrooms and living areas that open out to the pool and private gardens. Tour the home here.
Ellen DeGeneres ($36.5 million, Beverly Hills, CA)
Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres’s Beverly Hills compound was sold for an impressive $36.5 million to fellow TV personality Ryan Seacrest in 2012. The 3-acre home sits on a private road in north Beverly Hills and grew from adjoining properties that DeGeneres had combined.
At the time of the sale, the main home was a 9,200-sq. ft. residence with a pool and guest houses, as well as views of LA and the Pacific. Seacrest has since put his own stamp on the property over the years (including an underground garage), and the home is back on the market with a reported asking price of $74.5 million.
Tom Cruise ($39.5 million, Telluride, CO)
Tom Cruise’s expansive Telluride estate was listed for $39.5 million earlier this year and only spent a week in the market before it was purchased for its asking price. Its provenance isn’t the only thing that made it sought-after.
The 320-acre property includes a 11,512-sq. ft home with 7 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms at its heart. It’s a heavy timber structure with floor-to-ceiling windows and natural stone chimneys. Outside, there are forest trails, sweeping hillside views, horse stables, and a private helipad. This property has been with Cruise for over 30 years.
Cindy Crawford ($45 million Malibu, CA)
Supermodel Cindy Crawford’s 3-acre Malibu mansion, which she owned with her husband Rande Gerber, was sold in 2018 for a whopping $45 million and with good reason.
The 4-bedroom, 5-bathroom luxury property is in Malibu’s Encinal Bluffs, perched on land that juts out to the Pacific Ocean. The property takes full advantage of its oceanfront location, with outdoor living spaces designed to take advantage of the amazing views and the beautiful sunsets. The house includes a tennis court and swimming pool, while a path from the top of the bluffs leads to the beach below. It’s the ideal beachfront escape.
Demi Moore ($45 million, New York, NY)
Iconic film star, producer and activist Demi Moore sold her magnificent San Remo triplex in 2017. The penthouse, where she lived during her marriage with Bruce Willis, combines a premier location and stunning views of Central Park along with luxurious Southwestern Mission-inspired interiors featuring cherry wood paneling and aa library with original bas reliefs and plaster rosette molding. The 14-room apartment was originally listed for $75 million before it was eventually sold for $45 million.
Greg Norman ($59.9 million, Jupiter Island, FL)
Golfing legend Greg Norman sold his Jupiter Island estate earlier this year for an impressive $59.9 million after spending only 2 weeks in the market. Nicknamed “Tranquility” after the home’s stunning ocean views and beautiful sunsets, the 31,820-sq. ft. Cape Cod-style mansion with 10 bedrooms and 18 bathrooms, a beach house, pool house, and a host of other luxurious amenities.
Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion ($100 million, Los Angeles, CA)
Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion is an iconic symbol of sybaritic luxury. The 22,000-sq. ft. Gothic and Tudor mansion has seen more than its fair share of parties since the adult entertainment magnate bought it in 1974.
The mansion features a long list of luxury home features, including a tennis court, a waterfall, swimming pool, a pipe organ, and an outdoor kitchen, all inspired by Gothic Revival aesthetics. The mansion was sold to billionaire Daren Metropoulos for more than $100 million in 2016. The property is undergoing extensive renovations to restore its faded grandeur.
