10 Amazing Celebrity Homes We’d Happily House-Sit
House-sitting for a neighbor and her five cats? Hard pass. House-sitting the insane pad of our favorite celebrity? We’re not ashamed to admit we dream of it often. (Never say never, guys.) If anybody needs us, we’ll be Googling flights to LAX and packing our suitcases for these bonkers-gorgeous celebrity residences.
Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles, CA
We’re clamoring for a visit to Jared Leto’s stylish “starter home,” replete with a music studio, lush tropical gardens and not one but two master suites, which just hit the market for $2 million. (Bonus points for the Ludwig Bemelmans-reminiscent vine-covered facade.) Swoon.
Malibu Colony, CA
This Malibu manse boasts seven beds, ten baths and a pristine private beach in the exclusive Malibu Colony neighborhood. The pièce de résistance? Ridiculous ocean views from almost every room (that’s a window, not a painting there, folks). Psst, if house-sitting doesn’t pan out, you can also rent it for the totally reasonable price of $200,000 a month.
Khaleesi Emilia Clarke just dropped a casual $4.64 million on this unsurprisingly rad two-bedroom home in L.A.’s Venice neighborhood. The modern architecture, 30-foot pool and sliding glass walls are great and all, but don’t even get us started on these resplendent two-story bookshelves.
John Legend and Chrissy Teigen
Los Angeles, CA
Just when you think John and Chrissy couldn’t be any more perfect, they go and buy an outrageous $14 million mansion outfitted with every amenity we’ve ever dreamed up (home theatre, billiards party room, sauna, majestic views, etc.). Formerly owned by Rihanna, this pad is pretty much destined to be a hot spot for all eternity.
Beverly Hills, CA
Canyon views and natural sunlight abound in Jessica Alba’s new $9.98 million dream home. With a pool the size of a small lake and an oh-so-modest 8,900 square feet to romp around in, we’d have a hard time leaving this bucolic paradise.
Century City, Los Angeles, CA
Our dream BFF Jane Fonda is celebrating her newly single status by relocating to a gorgeous $5.45 million Mediterranean-style townhouse. With its white decor, gleaming marble surfaces and blonde wood floors, we’d happily check into this supremely peaceful urban respite.
Navy chef’s kitchen of our dreams? Check. Beyond glamorous princess bathrooms? Check, check. Genius indoor/outdoor flow that begs for alfresco entertaining? Three’s a winner. At $15K a month to rent, we’re considering taking out a super-irresponsible loan and moving into Kate Walsh’s magical Cali hideaway.
Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles, CA
Designed and renovated by Nate the great himself, this classic 1920s Spanish-style home is the stuff of dreams. It's just a stone’s throw from the iconic Chateau Marmont, which means you can catch stunning views of the city of stars from any number of on-site patios, pergola-covered terraces and private balconies.
Laurel Canyon, Los Angeles, CA
Previously owned by Frank Zappa, this $5.25 million home has all the creative accoutrements befitting the quirky queen of pop (think mosaic covered gardens, windows salvaged from old submarines and a full recording studio). But our hands-down favorite amenity? A designated massage room. Ahhh.
Hidden Hills, CA
Drake, everyone’s favorite Degrassi cast member cum highly successful musician, just closed the deal on this luxe and cozy yet surprisingly modest four-bedroom home. The catch? He already owns the seven-bedroom mansion next door.
