When you think of American actress and singer Cher, the first thing that probably comes to mind is glamour. And for a good reason! The Hollywood icon has always been known for her lavish and posh style, and that applies to her taste in real estate as well. Take her $45 million Malibu mansion, for example. This Italian Renaissance-style home is where many of us can only aspire to live. However, it is very much a grand reality for Cher.
This home measures about 16,000 square feet and hosts some very unique decorative pieces like Moroccan rugs, hand-polished marbles, Gothic chandeliers, Mexican fireplaces, and copper ceilings just to tie everything off. That’s not all. Many would say that the icing on the cake for Cher’s extravagant home would have to be her view of the Pacific Ocean, which can be viewed from every room in the mansion. It is surely a classic and timeless investment.
SCARLETT JOHANSSON – $3.8 MILLION, LOS ANGELES
Scarlett Johansson, born on 22 November 1984, is a famous American actress and singer. She is the highest paid actress of 2018 and 2019 and has been on the Forbes Celebrity 100 list several times.

With 5,500 square feet of living space, the house boasts five beds and six baths. Every room features elegant French stylings with a modern twist.

When you think about Kim and Kanye’s house, you already know it’s going to be out of this world. But just how extraordinary could it get? To be honest, the pair’s home is probably nothing like what you’ve seen before. Instead of opting for a more cozy and lived-in vibe, the couple has decided to go with a more modern design that’s a little less contemporary and more futuristic oasis. After buying their home in 2014, Kim and Kanye reportedly tore all the previous interior design down to make way for their boundary-defying design, which features sky-high ceilings, soaring arched hallways, and floor-to-ceiling white plastered walls.
The decorative pieces aren’t very imposing, as well. Minimalistic and monochromatic pieces are scattered in each corner. This highlights the structures surrounding each room. To achieve the Belgian monastery look for their $60 million home, Kim and Kanye worked with Axel Vervoordt, a known European designer who shared Kanye’s taste for a neutral and simple design.
