If there is one thing that celebrities love to do in their free time, it is to hunt for their next real estate investment. Indeed, stars change houses more often than everyday people, both because of the nature of their work, but also because they quickly become bored of their humble abodes. But the houses we’ve seen celebrities buy and sell over the years have been nothing short of exemplary, and although the most expensive ones have been bought by Hollywood A-listers, British stars are not that far behind. Let’s take a look at some of the most expensive houses our favorite Brits have lived in over the years!
Harry Styles – $8.495 Million, Hollywood Hills
Hollywood Hills has always been the prime residential locality for our favorite celebrities, and Harry Styles made that decision as well. The house cost him $6.87 million when he purchased it, but now, for whatever reason (maybe he’s just bored of it), the One Direction star is bent on selling it for $8.495 million. The hike in price seems too much considering he held the house for only approximately 1.5 years (an increase of more than 19% in value) but considering that the 4,100-sq.-ft. living space offers four lavish bedrooms, including a master suite on the top floor, a spa, and a pool, the price is justified, as long as it includes a sufficient home insurance plan.
David Beckham – $44 Million, West London
Britain’s sweetheart David Beckham is not only a football legend but also has great taste when it comes to purchasing real estate (although we’re slightly inclined to believe it was his wife Victoria who chose it). The Beckhams made the purchase back in 2013 for the sum of $44 million and reportedly spent an additional $11.3 million to make it fit for their posh lifestyle. The mansion has six bedrooms, a gym, a powder room (Victoria got herself covered), a wine cellar, an open fire, a cinema room, and a coffee machine that reportedly has a value of $3,8K. If that is not true luxury, we’re not sure what is!
Wayne Rooney – $7 Million, Barbados
His wealth management advisor probably warned him against it, because rationally speaking, Wayne Rooney’s $35K/week place in Barbados seems rather over-priced. But that’s only during peak season, like Christmas. During off-season, you can reportedly rent the house for as low as $14/week as well, so it depends on how much you’re willing to spend and if you can get time off then. The gorgeous place has space for hosting 14 guests at max, including the two bedrooms at the separate cottage (which comes at an extra price, of course). A pool, a media room, and amazing views of the sea make this a great place to stay while you’re on your Barbados dream vacation.
