Insane Celebrity Houses You Won't Believe Real Human Beings Actually Live In

List Rules
Vote up the craziest, most lavish homes.

People love reading about the most lavish homes of the rich and famous. Most of us will never make enough money to afford the unbelievable celebrity houses we see on the covers of architectural and design magazines across the world.  While many celebs have luxurious mansions, others have out-of-this world, strange, eerie, bizarre and crazy themed houses. Like spaceships and convents sort of crazy. 

Some of these houses have crazy amenities that the majority of cities across the world don’t even have, while others contain rarities that you’d be far more likely to see in a museum than a private residence.

    Johnn Travolta's Jumbolair


    While many of the homes on this list are extravagant, none of them have their own airport. John Travolta’s Jumbolair home, located in Ocala, FL, has a 1.4-mile-long runway in the back of the house. Actors typically make space in their homes for their car collections, which Travolta has plenty of, too. But, Travolta has two airplanes in his backyard, one of which is a 1964 Boeing 707-138B airliner, which was once part of the Qantas fleet. That is a commercial airplane, capable of flying around the world. He also owns a Gulfstream executive jet, because why not. The house even has its own control tower on the roof. Of course, Travolta has his commercial pilot’s license and is capable of operating all these planes.

    Naomi Campbell's Russian Spaceship


    No, this isn’t something out of Star Trek. This home was commissioned by Naomi Campbell’s ex-boyfriend, Russian billionaire Vladislav Doronin, in 2012. The 28,525 square-foot home is located just outside Moscow. The home was designed by architect Zaha Hadid, who passed away in 2016. It features two 65-foot towers, which offer stunning views of the cold Russian wilderness. It seems like the perfect place to shack up for Campbell, who is an alien-like ice queen herself.

    Leonardo DiCaprio's Eco-Warrior Resort


    Well, we all know that Leo DiCaprio is an eco-warrior. He’s also an extremely wealthy celebrity. And what do extremely wealthy celebrities like to do? They like to buy islands. DiCaprio bought a small island off the coast of Belize over 10 years ago for $1.75 million. Now, he's hoping to open his resort, Blackadore Caye, A Restorative Island, in 2018.  While there will be many footprints left on the sandy beaches of this resort, carbon footprints aren’t welcome on Leo’s island. The 36 bungalows and 36 estate homes will all be powered by renewable energy.

    A list on crazy celebrity homes cannot be complete without the late Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch. After the performer’s death in 2009, the house remains unsold. The original asking price for the property was $100 million, but has since been devalued to $67 million.

    While Michael Jackson was still living at the ranch, he filled the 2,700 acre property with a small zoo (including tigers, giraffes and chimps), a dance studio, a 50-person movie theater, a train station and a massive amusement park. The amusement park had its own Ferris wheel, roller coaster and bumper cars. Michael Jackson stopped living at the ranch in 2005, after his child molestation trial. He believed that the authorities "violated" the ranch after they raided it for evidence against him.

    Xanadu 2.0 is Bill Gates's sprawling property in Medina, Washington. With Gates being the second-richest man in the world with a net worth of $89.4 billion, you should expect Xanadu to be impressive. Xanadu is about 66,000 square feet and is valued at $123.54 million.

    The house is full of crazy amenities, rarities and amazing technology. Gates supposedly installed over $80,000 worth of computer screens throughout the rooms. Guests can simply touch the screens to change the artwork on the walls of the home to anything they want. The house also features a massive pool with an underwater sound system, so you can do laps and jam out to your favorite tunes. The immense library (2,100 square feet) is also supposedly home to the Codex Leicester, Leonardo da Vinci’s manuscript from the 16th-century. Gates bought the manuscript at auction in 1994 for $30.8 million. This home is so incredible, that people have actually paid $35,000 just to take a tour of it.

    Who would guess that one of the most recognizable celebrity properties in the world was purchased for only $102,500? In 1957, a 22-year-old Elvis Presley bought it for just that. The home, located in Memphis, is the second-most visited private residence in the United States, with 600,000 annual visitors. It’s second only to the White House, so that’s impressive. What makes the home truly special is that it is the final resting place of Elvis himself. After several attempts to steal his body from Forrest Hills Cemetery in Memphis, his body was moved to the Meditation Garden, located on the Graceland property.
