Living like a movie star is a dream many of us have had over the years. Part of that lifestyle is the obligatory mansion. It must have lots of bedrooms and bathrooms, a dining room for entertaining heads of state, and plenty of space out of doors for the horse back rides and private tennis lessons. Now, you too can live exactly like a star. Reba McEntire’s Nashville estate is on the market. The asking price is only eight million, but there is a catch: you have to love horseback riding, watching movies at home, and sunlight.
Drooling over the reigning queen of country music’s lavish mansion just made us hungry for more. Being cooped up in an apartment can make one’s mind wander, wondering if there is not something better on the market. So we looked, and decided to show you some of the premier properties celebrities have put up for sale in the last few years.
Television and music star Ice T has his Bergen New Jersey condo on the market right now. If you are looking in the New York City area, this may be the best find of the century. The penthouse apartment overlooks the Hudson river, with spectacular views of midtown Manhattan, and at two stories and twenty two hundred square feet is a steal at just a little over a million dollars. To put that into perspective, you can expect to pay exactly that same amount for half as much space living some parts of Brooklyn, with no celebrity past.
Maybe you’d prefer living in a home owned by a Beatle? George Harrison’s Encino California home is yours for just under three million dollars. The five bedroom, five bath mansion features almost five thousand square feet and a pool. Guitars and Grammies not included.
If Country music and country living are more your thing, Look no further than the former home of Faith hill and Tim McGraw. They split their estate into two parcels, Carter’s Creek and Bear Creek. The larger, Carter Creek, comes on a property of over three hundred and fifty acres and includes the historic Samuel Morton House. No “nouveau riche mcmansion”, this home was built in 1800 and is covered in old south charm. It can be yours for ten million dollars. The smaller parcel, Bear Creek, includes another antebellum home, Beechwood Hall, and more than two hundred and sixty acres of property. A steal at just over eight million.
If Thousand Oaks California sounds like your kind of town, you might be interested in a little place owned by Britney Spears. Her eight thousand square foot, Spanish style includes a game room, wine cellar, home theatre, and a master bedroom with his and hers baths, each equipped with Jacuzzi tubs and walk in closets. She only wants nine million for the place, but you should try to talk her down or you may not have enough to hire a housekeeper to live in the attached maid’s quarters.
