At Realtor.com we love when a home with an over-the-top amenity appears in the round-up of listings we view on a daily basis. Sure, we’ve seen a home with a hydraulic car lift that hoists your ride into the living room, and who doesn’t enjoy an abode with an indoor gun range, bowling alley, or nightclub?
Many times the best features appear in celebrity real estate. Some have home features that match their profession – musicians have recording studios or basketball players have indoor courts. Whether related to a career or not, here’s a look at some of the cool amenities we’ve seen in celebrity homes recently.
The former home of Mel Gibson in Greenwich, CT is a Tudor-style manor house set on over 75 lush acres. Currently on the market for $32,995,000, the 15,862 square foot home is secluded in a heavily-wooded area. Our favorite features of Old Mill Farm are definitely the sculpted-hedge maze and life-sized lawn chess game.
Joe Johnson of the Brooklyn Nets
Currently listed for $4,700,000, Johnson’s home in Atlanta has many exciting features like a billiard room, movie theater and recording studio. Our favorite amenity, however, is the full-service barbershop and salon. It can be so hard to find the time to get a cut and color, but with this home, you’ll never have to worry about penciling in a blowout again.
Marky Mark’s Beverly Hills mansion leaves no detail unaccounted for, but the standout amenities are definitely outside. The pool, featuring a grotto and waterfall, sits next to a putting green and basketball court. The most impressive feature is the 2,500 square foot gym with a boxing ring, where he must have trained for “The Fighter.” The home is currently on the market for $12,995,000.
Gilbert Arenas of the Memphis Grizzlies
Basketball stars definitely enjoy luxe real estate and Gilbert Arenas is no exception. His Great Falls, VA home, presumably his pad when he played for the Washington Wizards, features a pool with a grotto and waterslide. The most interesting features by far though, are the multiple fish and shark tanks. If you love to be surrounded by the aquatic life, this home could be yours for $3,500,000.
