20 Of The Most Expensive Celebrity Homes On The Market
If you keep up with the news regarding the lives of your favorite celebrities, you’ve surely noticed by now that many of their homes are actually up for sale, which may surprise you since the real estate market is not what it used to be. However, it would seem that the high-end part of the real estate market did not suffer much in the wake of the economic crisis, which is why many stars are listing their lavish homes up with exorbitant price tags. Here are 20 of the most expensive celebrity homes on the market right now.
1. The Sagaponack Village Home of Billy Joel
Billy Joel seems to be struggling with the selling of his elegant house in Sagaponack village, even though he did scale down the original asking price several times now. The home was originally up for sale for $22.5 million, a price that was later dropped to $19.9 million, $18.5 million and even $16.8 million – the price Billy paid for the house when he purchased in 2007. In any case, $16 million is quite a lot to ask for a house, which is why selling the residence could become quite problematic.
2. Gary Levinsohn’s Home in Bel Air
The Bel Air house of Gary Levinsohn was sketched out by Richard Neutra and built in 1955 boasting seven bathrooms, four bedrooms and a 4,200-bottle wine tasting room.

The house ensures 6,674 square feet of living space and is currently listed for $10.9 million.
3. Dr. Phil’s Beverly Hills Home
Among the many residences owned by Dr. Phil is a 2006 Mediterranean home in Beverly Hills that boasts five bedrooms, a living room, a dining room, a spa, a swimming pool and a beautiful yard. The asking price for all of this exquisiteness is “just” $6.25 million.
4. Barry Manilow’s Malibu House
Benefiting from a premium location on the famed Malibu Road, Barry Manilow’s residence has been on the market since 2009 but did not attract a client just yet, mostly because of its spicy price tag. The home was purchased by Barry in 1999 for the price of $3 million, and even though he was initially asking $10.9 million for it, he recently dropped the price down to $7,991,938. The abode includes three guest bedrooms, a separate guesthouse and a lavish sunken living room that boasts floor-to-ceiling windows.

One of its most impressive assets is a beautiful inner courtyard fountain.

Due to its rich heritage and exquisite design, the residence is retailed for $15.75 million.
15. Sean Diddy’s N.J. Colonial Style Home
Apparently, Puff Diddy enjoys the warm weather of Los Angeles more than he enjoys his Alpine, New Jersey Colonial style home, which is why he listed it for sale with a price tag of $13.5 million. This exceptional home has no less than 26 rooms, and it sits on a 3-acre lot that includes a swimming pool, a separate guesthouse and a putting green.
16. Former Nicolas Cage Home in Las Vegas

Conveniences include a home theater, an elevator and a sweeping stairway, while accommodations involve 7 magnificent bedrooms.
17. Ricky Martin’s Mediterranean Home
Ricky Martin initially planned to sell his two story Mediterranean home for no less than $22.5 million, but he was forced to drop the price to $18.9 million since no buyer was interested in purchasing it.

Conveniences involve a swimming pool, a spa and an outdoor kitchen, and the asking price is just $7.2 million.
20. The Florida Mansion of Burt Reynolds
Burt Reynolds listed his exquisite Florida mansion in 2005 for $15 million, but he kept chopping the price over the years in order to encourage a buyer.
