Remember when you were young and idealistic, dreaming of what you would put in your own mansion that you’re sure that you would one day own. An indoor pool, a gym, a theatre room or even a Ferris wheel in your backyard! Well, these blessed people don’t need to dream, they’re living the dream. Read on below to see some insane mansions owned by the rich and famous.
Hollywood hunk Mark Wahlberg lives in his whopping 30,000 square-foot house, scratch that, mansion. Located in the very prestigious community of Beverly Hills, California, and was designed by famous LA designer, Richard Landry. His French inspired estate is built entirely of stone and boasts 11 bedrooms, 18 bathrooms, a stone pool, a spa, full-sized basketball court and to top it all off, a backyard putting green. Finally, if you thought that Wahlberg must have waited years for this to be built, you thought wrong. It only took 5 years. Sounds like a holiday resort if you ask me!
While this mansion may not look as massive as Wahlberg’s, make no mistake this Hacienda-style estate is valued at a breezy $9.75 million! Famous actor Clint Eastwood currently lives at his 6,900 square-foot home in Pebble Beach, California. This beautiful, exposed brick mansion has six bedrooms, thick adobe walls with the original Spanish-style wooden doors in the front of the home. The most impressive feature of this estate is the opened-air cobbled fountain inside the house. You know you’ve made it in life when you have indoor fountains in your mansion.

One of her favourite features is the above ground pool with its vintage faucets and temperature dials.
Actor and comedian, Eddie Murphey splurged a whopping $10 million for his 3.7-acre home in Beverly Hills in 2001. We can only imagine what the property is worth nowadays.

This 19th century Classical Italianate style home is made up of nine bedrooms and bathrooms, two-story library, a tennis court, bowling alley and a pool. But wait there’s still more. The mansion also has a 5,200 square-foot detached guest house.
Action movie actor Denzel Washington lives in the infamous Beverly Park Estate, on Mulholland Drive in the San Fernando Valley. Interestingly he is actually Eddie Murphey’s neighbour, we wonder if they ever hang out. The massive 1.5-acre home is heavily guarded, making it difficult to enter. The most striking features of his home is the sprawling green manicured lawns, a lovely airy pool area and an enclosed tennis court. Looking at the photo we can only imagine how many bedrooms the mansion might have, more than most people can afford.

The home spans more than 10,000 square feet and features plenty of large windows that let in a ton of natural light while still keeping her privacy. Along the front of the mansion are a series of never-ending balconies, can you imagine watching a sunset up there! This home was originally built and designed in 2018 as a spec mansion, meaning that it sat empty before she bought it. What a bargain!

Situated in the prestigious Bel-Air neighbourhood, their mansion is made up of six structures and boasts many impressive features like four swimming pools, a spa and wellness facility, as well as bulletproof windows…strange flex but okay. The numerous outdoor patios and terraces offer tantalizing views of LA, we can’t imagine why anyone would ever want to leave this home, I would stay home all day every day.
Famous singer/songwriter Taylor Swift really wanted to live along the east coast and so she bought her stunning seaside mansion for $17.8 million and to top it all off, she paid for the entire property in cash! Imagine having that amount of money in cash to buy yourself a mansion.
