Oprah Winfrey has an estate in California worth $90 million, complete with a beautiful rose garden.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have a chateau in France that cost $60 million, and was the location for their wedding in 2014.

While some celebs are veritable real estate moguls that invest their ample funds into a plethora of realty, others may just own one, incredibly expensive property.

Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres and Beyoncé are just a few big names with even bigger estates.

Oprah Winfrey has a whole 65 acres all to herself at her estate in Montecito, California, which is known as the “Promised Land.” 

While she purchased the 23,000-square-foot mansion for $50 million in 2001, today it’s estimated to be worth almost twice that, thanks to the addition of more land and lavish renovations.

The expansive mansion has six bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, 10 fireplaces, two theaters (one inside and one outside), a wine cellar, a barn, ponds and orchards, a tennis court, a lake, and a huge guesthouse with a pool. There is also a tea house, because why not?

The Playboy Mansion was sold in 2016 for $100 million.

Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion is arguably the most notorious home in the world. The 30-room house features a game room, zoo, aviary, grotto, tennis court, basketball court, wine cellar, and a screening room with a built-in pipe organ.

Hefner originally bought it for only $1.1 million in 1971, but sold it for $100 million in 2016. Despite that being about half of his asking price, at the time it was the largest residential real estate deal in Los Angeles history

The power couple, whose combined worth Forbes put at $1.16 billion, purchased a modern mansion in Bel Air for around $88 million, which includes a full spa, a media room, and four outdoor swimming pools. The property also includes a basketball court, a 15-car garage, and staff housing.
