The price of celebrity homes

Have you ever dreamed of cooking up a storm in Jamie Oliver's kitchen? Or swanning around the Playboy mansion with a bevy of beautiful women? Well, your dreams could become a reality, providing you have the money to pay for it.

Jamie Oliver

Jamie Oliver recently put one of his homes on the market. Unfortunately, the property which is situated in an upmarket part of London and boasts ten bedrooms, six bathrooms and - surprise, surprise - three kitchens, is priced at £12-million.

Hugh Hefner

Likewise, Hugh Hefner has obviously decided that maintaining the Playboy mansion is becoming a little too much for a man of his advanced years and has put the home on the market for $200-million. But before you all leap at the chance to own this infamous home, there is a downside – Hugh will continue living there once the new owner takes transfer. Enter Alt Tag Here

Elizabeth Taylor

If city life isn't for you, there is an opportunity to live on a farm once owned by Liz Taylor and her 6th husband, Senator John Warner. A sprawling 400 acres, the property includes an indoor pool, a barn and tennis courts. Priced at $8.775 million, the exquisite double storey stone home is an attractive option.

Michael Jordan

Basketball legend Michael Jordan’s pad is also for sale. Originally priced at $29-million, the property sports a regulation size basketball court complete with cushioned hardwood flooring. There's also an indoor tennis court and putting green as well as climate controlled garages.

Michael Jackson

Neverland, the beloved home of the late music icon, Michael Jackson, has been on the market since last year. While one would imagine this property would have been snapped up by some die-hard Jackson fan, the price tag of $100-million appears to have put a damper on things. You do however get quite a lot for your money, including the usual celeb must-haves like tennis courts, a basketball court and a 50 seater movie theatre. Then there's the Neverland Valley Fire Department firehouse (that was once staffed by real firefighters) railway tracks and a train station. Alas, the zoo and the amusement park rides that once graced the property have all been removed.

The owners of a property which once belonged to Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony seem to be battling to sell. Previously listed for $12-million, it's been reduced to $9-million. Ideal for entertaining, the property has an oversized swimming pool and swimming pool pavilion as well as a recording studio.

Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise is also reportedly offloading some unwanted real estate, including the home he once shared with his former wife, Katie Holmes. The country estate in Sussex is on the market for nearly £5-million. The large four storey mansion has six bedrooms, five full and three half bathrooms. There's a guest house in the garden and the wooded sunken garden with interconnected stream-fed ponds is a great selling point.
