Most of us don’t own massive mansions with private beaches or beautiful estates with a literal water park. But that’s okay because celebrities do — and we have pictures! If you’re tired of browsing the basic homes available on your local Zillow page, try living vicariously through this virtual tour of A-lister homes.

From Tom Brady’s resort-like mansion to Selena Gomez’s waterslide to Will Smith’s sports complex, these stars have taken luxury to a whole new level with their home design.

Enjoy these celebrity mansions you won’t believe actually exist:

Selena Gomez

A mega-star like Selena Gomez needs a mega-mansion like this to call home. Her Forth Worth mansion has five bedrooms, a tennis court, a golfing green, and a movie theatre.

But the real prize to his place is the gorgeous saltwater pool that has a built-in waterslide. However, Selena has moved on to bigger and better mansions. She put this estate up for sale in 2018 for $2.7 million.

Bill Gates

Billionaire Bill Gates, the fourth richest man in the world, owns multiple estates. His main home, seen here, is worth 130 million dollars. This mansion took seven years to construct and spans a total of 66,000 square feet.

The Microsoft founder’s second mansion is located on prime real estate along the ocean in Del Mar, California. This oceanfront mansion includes a jacuzzi large enough for ten adults and is worth over 43 million dollars.

Adele

2016 was a good year for celebrity home-buying as singer Adele took the leap and purchased this mansion for $9.5 million. You get what you pay for when you want to live in the same gated Beverly Hills community as Cameron Diaz, Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Jennifer Lawrence, and Nicole Richie.

Adele’s gorgeous home comes complete with four bedrooms, six bathrooms, and a pool. But the coolest (and most unique) features of the mansion have to be its on-side tree house and outdoor train set. Choo, choo?

Will Smith

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air himself, Will Smith, owns a dazzling $42 million mansion located in California. This incredible piece of property is perfect for all those sports fans and athletes out there.

With multiple tennis courses, basketball courts, and even a golf course, this mansion is sure to keep you busy. Not to mention, there also is a state-of-the-art recording studio on the inside.

Kendall Jenner

Back in 2016, the reality TV-turned supermodel took over this West Hollywood mansion for a neat $6.5 million. It was formally owned by beloved celebrity power couple Emily Blunt and John Krasinski.

Now it’s Kendall who’s enjoying the six bedrooms, five bathrooms, and gorgeously manicured private pool. Not bad for a young star like her.

Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen

It’s no surprise that the championship winning football player and his equally successful supermodel (soon to be ex-) wife would have a stunning mansion of their own. Brady and Gisele’s beautiful Californian estate is worth over $20 million.

This elaborate home took three years to construct and features a large swimming pool with a resort-like vibe as well as a custom play space for their children. However, the most prominent aspect of the multi-million dollar mansion would be the bridge over the dazzling moat at the entrance of the home.

Taylor Swift

Listen, Taylor Swift has eight homes. There are multiple penthouses scattered through New York City, a condo and an estate in Tennessee, three mansions in Los Angeles, and this masterpiece of a home in Rhode Island.

Other than being the spot for her infamous, celebrity-filled Fourth of July parties, this one comes with seven bedrooms, eight fireplaces, and a pool. It also overlooks the ocean and is worth about $17.75 million.

Gigi And Bella Hadid

Gigi and Bella Hadid spent their super-relatable childhoods running through the halls of this mega-mansion in Malibu. Their mother, Yolanda Hadid, sold it for $19.45 million back in 2015, and it’s easy to see where the high price comes in.

Not only does this house have six bedrooms, nine bathrooms, and three floors—one of which is a subterranean screening room—but it also has some serious amenities. This house has a recording studio, game room, wet bar, sauna, and massage room. Because, why not?

Kylie Jenner

Most first homes are not like Kylie Jenner’s first home. The model and beauty guru purchased her Calabasas estate for $2.7 million back in 2015.

While it has all the typical features of celebrity homes—too many bedrooms, bathrooms, and pools for a single person—it also has some interesting decor. Some fans noticed that she had a framed mugshot of her then-boyfriend Tyga proudly displayed.

Drake

Judging by the size and style of this pool, this home could only belong to rapper Drake. He spent $7.7 million on this Hidden Hills mansion, which he lovingly nicknamed “the YOLO Estate.”

He even posted signs declaring it as such throughout the estate. But eventually, he had to stop because people kept stealing them. The home has a mechanical bull, a tennis court, a basketball court, stables, and a bookshelf that opens to his bedroom.

Gianni Versace

Any home owned by fashion designer Gianni Versace is going to be filled with fine details and luxury, and his Miami Beach home was no exception. Gianni purchased the property in 1992 and spent about $32 million, renovating it to his particular style.

In 1998, he was infamously murdered in this home, but it didn’t stay vacant long. It was soon converted into a luxury boutique hotel called the Villa Casa Casuarina, and it’s just as swanky as Gianni would have liked.

Alicia Keys

Nestled on the top of Camelback Mountain in Phoenix, Arizona, the views alone are not what make the singer’s mansion worth $3.85 million. Alicia Keys and Swizz Beats have dubbed this glass mansion “Dreamland” because it’s a “dream come true.”

And no wonder—with four bedrooms, five bathrooms, a six-car garage, and an infinity pool, this place really does sound like a dream.

Mohamed Hadid

As a real estate tycoon, it comes as no surprise that Mohamed Hadid lives in an $85 million mansion in Bel Air. That’s right — eighty-five million dollars.

With that heft price tag comes 10 bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, a formal outdoor bath, and, of course, a ballroom to host events that can fit up to 250 people. It also has an elevator, a swan pond, eight rose gardens, and a Turkish hammam, which is like a communal bath.

Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt

Back when Bran-gelina was a thing, so was their $55 million Long Island home. This beachfront mansion boasts a massive 25 bedrooms in the main house — because what’s one house when you can have three?

In addition to the two guest homes, there was also a beach cabana and a log cabin. It goes without saying that the beach in front of their home was private and included a piece big enough to host a yacht.

Kylie Jenner (Yes, Again!)

At 19, Kylie Jenner purchased not her second but her third multi-million dollar home. This one is a $12 million mansion located in Hidden Hills.

This massive estate had eight bedrooms and eleven bathrooms all sprawled across 1.2 acres. It also came with a spa room and a home theater because what else would you want at 19?

This restored Spanish Villa (originally built in 1926) right around the corner from the infamous Chateau Marmont. It also has five bedrooms, six baths, a home theatre, and a private pool.

Kelly Clarkson

You don’t need a California zip code to enjoy a massive mansion. Singer and famed former American Idol contestant Kelly Clarkson sold her estate in Henderson, Tennessee, for $8.75 million.

This gorgeous home sits on a lake and comes with its own volleyball court and deep water dock. But the best part is the in-home cowboy bar that includes saddle barstools; very on-brand.

Michelle And Barack Obama

After President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama left the White House, they went to this Washington D.C. mansion. Purchased for $5.295 million, this gorgeous home sits in the prominent Kalorama neighborhood and boasts some cool features.

This home comes with nine bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a two-car garage, and a gorgeous backyard surrounded by trees. For, you know, a little post-presidency privacy. It also has a courtyard that can fit 10 cars.

Mary-Kate Olsen

Most people in New York settle for one-bedroom walkups they happily share with roommates. But not Mary-Kate Olsen and her fiance Oliver Sarkozy. The couple paid $13.5 million for their four-bedroom townhouse/mansion.

This gorgeous home has not one but seven fireplaces, an elevator, a ballroom, and an artist’s studio. As expected, this place is anything but cramped. The ceilings alone are 22-feet.

Jennifer Lawrence

This house may look like it belongs in a quaint, fairytale story—but it’s anything but. Actress Jennifer Lawrence purchased it in 2014 for $6.4 million. Once you look at the specs, it’s easy to see why.
