For most people, self-isolating amid the corona virus means making do; it means a makeshift desk using books to balance your laptop on, it means fighting for WiFi with your housemates and, most likely, it means your living room will become your office, your home gym, a café and your chill spot. But that’s not always the case. Some celebrities seem to have their very own world, and it’s safe to say we certainly wouldn’t mind self-isolating there.
Look for yourself…
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West dropped £18 million on their mansion in the Hidden Hills, California, complete with a walk-in wardrobe easily mistaken for a shopping mall, an entertainment pavilion with several cinema screens, two pools and a vineyard. The couple then went on to buy the property next door, expanding their land to 4.5 acres.
Adele bought a mansion in the same community as Jennifer Lawrence, Mila Kunis, Cameron Diaz and Nicole Richie back in 2016, so it’s no surprise that the property is totally flawless. The singer reportedly paid £8.5 million for it, and got herself four bedrooms, six bathrooms, a pool, a treehouse and an outdoor train set to recreate your daily commute while you work from home if you so wish.
Victoria & David Beckham
Victoria and David Beckham have recently announced their decision to self-isolate and the Cotswolds retreat they are spending their time in is truly jaw-dropping. It boasts its own pool, a tennis court and a sauna, while their £31 million London home has a gym, wine cellar and even separate quarters for their eldest son Brooklyn to live in, so there’s no need to worry about social distancing there.
Jennifer Aniston & Brad Pitt
Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt’s home in Los Angeles is £34 million worth. The property has four bedrooms, a swimming pool, a tennis court, a pub, a private cinema room and heated marble floors. According to sources, Brad and Jen spent three years renovating the property when they first moved in.
Tamara Ecclestone lives in a 57-room mansion just around the corner from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s residence at Kensington Palace, with her husband Jay Rutland and daughter Sofia. Apparently, the property was bought for £45 million and is now estimated to be worth approximately £70 million. Inside, there’s a private nightclub, a bowling alley, a swimming pool, a beauty salon, a dog spa, a car lift and an Amazonian crystal bathtub.
Artist Ed Sheeran owns an estate in Suffolk where he lives with his wife Cherry Lancaster Seaborn, and there’s so much there that it’s earned itself the name Sheeranville. It comes complete with a pub, a tree house, a wildlife pond, an orangery, a spiral wine cellar, and even an underground tunnel between the house and the pub.
Lady Gaga owns a £20 million estate in Malibu, featuring a two-lane bowling alley, a stable big enough for eight horses and a safe room. Though probably not what she’d intended, the safe room would be ideal for protecting yourself from germs.
Paris Hilton’s former home in the Hollywood Hills sold in 2019 for £3.5 million, and the buyer is now the lucky owner of their very own nightclub, outdoor waterfall, private jacuzzi and impressive fire pit. Paris even built her dogs their very own puppy mansion.
Gigi and Bella Hadid
Gigi and Bella’s childhood home in Malibu sold for £17 million in 2015, and the sisters certainly didn’t have to make do. It has six bedrooms, nine bathrooms and extends over three floors including a basement where you’ll find a cinema room, a recording studio, a games room, a sauna and a massage room.
We guarantee you would never be bored in self-isolation at the LA mansion that Jennifer Lopez formerly owned with her then-husband Marc Anthony. The nine-bedroom property comes complete with a bar, a cards game area, a 20-seat cinema, a dance studio, a recording studio and a library. J Lo sold the house for £11 million in 2017.
Looking at these homes either makes us envious, or thankful that we don’t have such a massive mansion to clean when the entire staff is in isolation! but we these celebrities sure know how to live in style!
