Celebrity Homes Do Not Have It All

Celebrity Homes Do Not Have It All

One of the most valued assets that anyone can own that would appreciate in value over time is a home. Buying your home requires a lot of research, money, time, and effort, as the ultimate goal of purchasing any home is to find a home that fits the needs of the family and to hopefully have it appreciate in market value with the possibility to sell it later on. If you have ever seen a celebrity home, you will know that not only do they don the latest housing style trends, but that the number of options they have to customize their homes are ridiculous.

From oversized garages to large pools and beautiful patios, these folks have it all. However, just because their homes are amazing does not mean that you cannot own some of the features that they have in their homes. In fact, it is quite possible to live some part of their lifestyle with your own home, of course, up to a certain extent.

George Clooney Home: Living the American Way in the Favourite Mansion

George Clooney lives in Studio City, California, and his house in the woods is one of the most modest ones among the celebrities, especially of such level. His mansion costs ‘only’ around $3 million. Compared to Jay-Z appetites, this is almost ascetic of Mr Clooney.

If you look at the house from above, you will know immediately that a man lives there. A rare woman, especially if she is famous, will want to live in the forest surrounded by trees. And this particular place is one of those. Clooney confessed that he lived in a rather small house by the time of making season three of the ER series. When the actor became popular because of the show, he was able to get himself a bigger place, such as this mansion with a basketball court and a pool.

Interior and exterior design taboos the rich and famous teach us
