These Celebrities Have Backyards That’ll Inspire You

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen

Just recently, Hollywood couple John Legend and Chrissy Teigen added to their list of real estate properties a home with a living space of 3,500 square feet, four bedrooms, and four baths. The real estate investment comes with a stunning backyard that features a gas-powered fireplace, a lap pool, a spa, a covered patio, and a widescreen TV. The property is worth $5.1 million in value and is located in West Hollywood. The architectural design and interior are elegantly and stylishly arranged, it’s a perfect place to reset.

While the couple relaxes in the backyard, we are sure they feel nothing more but blessed to be home, as they spend their time with each other and build together such a stunner of an abode. They replaced the kitchen appliances with newer ones for convenient dining purposes. The upstairs comes with a master suite bedroom with a balcony. Knowing all these facts, we could imagine how this couple can make their special moments in their new home.

Seth Rogen

Seth Rogen recently purchased a modest home with impressive standards and ideals for a backyard, perfectly fit for a movie star. The property, located in West Hollywood, is worth $1.9 million and features an architectural design resembling that of a Spanish revival cottage. The small home is for his family members to live in and enjoy and has 1,950 square feet of living space. It is located in a tree-lined neighborhood that is, for sure, a peaceful and stress-free environment.

The cozy open space living room features a fireplace and carpet. It also has a huge window to let the rays of sunlight in. Additionally, there’s a family room with a French door that leads to the backyard. While the interior is stunning and sharp even for an originally built and designed structure in the 1920s, truly, it’s outdoor space is something to credit for quite an ideal R&R feels. Did we mention that the master bedroom opens to the backyard pool? Spectacular, right?

Ellen Degeneres and Portia De Rossi

Something from this celebrity couple’s portfolio will make it to the cut of course as Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi have a reputation of being two of Hollywood’s biggest home flippers, and that’s how they are sowing their seeds of fortune. That being established, here’s their recent purchase that features a Tudor-style home investment, featuring such amazing French doors opening to a beautiful tree-filled courtyard.

Even though the property is located in Montecito, California, their new place takes you back to a countryside home in England. In this time of quarantine, it’s quite a place to be in. Imagine sipping tea and reading newspaper in this outdoor spot be it in the morning or in the afternoon. These two always have it all, and we’ll see until their next house flip in the coming months or years. It was bought by Ariana Grande last June 2020 for $6.75 million.

Cardi b and Offset

For the Bodak Yellow singer Cardi B, and her American rapper and songwriter hubby Offset, nothing costs more to them than the 22,000-square-foot, jaw-dropping mansion they paid a mortgage on. Their mega-home is located in Atlanta and costs a staggering $5.8 million. Other than the massive living space, the house also came with a European-style landscaped backyard, while the foyer is composed of higher ceilings with dangling chandeliers and stairs. In the yard is their infinity pool in which Cardi B can enjoy her sunbathing.

A chilled sangria from their 1,800-bottle wine cellar will definitely go along with the backyard relaxation the couple would share together. The place can also be used if they want to throw a party for their guests. Not to mention the stunning view and warmth of the sunset credits to the perfectly manicured back deck that overlooks the 6-acre property and the infinity pool. The house was bought as part of their wedding anniversary celebration.


America’s favorite and most popular therapist Dr. Phil McGraw lives in a traditional mansion in Beverly Hills, California. His place has a splendid backyard anyone would wish to have. It comes with a swimming pool, a hot tub, and a standalone cabana. It has a total of 11 bathrooms and 5 bedrooms. With a home like his, you won’t ever be surprised if he shows up on television fresh with revelation and ready for the deal.

You’d even want to be invited over for a private session with him. Dr. Phil’s mansion values at $5.75 million, plus it spans 15,000 square feet, and with a net worth of $460 million, he made a wise money management decision to purchase this property, and he gained his net worth from his profession as a doctor and television host over the years. The mansion features not only the beautiful interior but also the outdoor spaces such as the neat alfresco area and outdoor kitchen.

Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson’s backyard will inspire you to build your own house similarly. From a $1 million-plus worth of mansion in Nashville, Clarkson developed and modified the whole property to the degree that it now costs $7.5 million. Her house is 20,000 square feet in area with seven bedrooms, eight baths, and impressive home features. Among the amenities is the swimming pool that sits handsomely out in the yard with an al fresco dining at the other end.

The alfresco area is built with bricks and has a wood fireplace to bring the temperature higher, especially when on evenings with a cold breeze. In addition, an open area is an ideal place for the families and guests to enjoy the Old Hickory lakefront. The foyer had two staircases and on the other parts of the interior, we can find a wet bar, formal dining, a living room, and a home theater. The backyard looks like a park so it is the best spot to walk or even jog.

Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy

Best known for her role in Desperate Housewives that aired on ABC from 2004 until 2012, actress Felicity Huffman and her husband William H. Macy are renting out one of their single-level real estate property in Hollywood Hills for $16.5 thousand per month and that is a good thing because they can still earn even they’re retired from show business.

It boasts 4,566 square feet of living space and features five bedrooms, six baths, an updated home security system, a spacious yard with a swimming pool, a sunbathing facility, and a view overlooking the city of Los Angeles. We think this is a perfect place for them to spend most of their free time. The master bedroom has a wall-length window that opens to the yard where an outdoor entertainment and dining area can be found. This property is a picture of the real California casual-living, which is rather enticing and welcoming at the same time.

Lori Loughlin

Actress Lori Loughlin, famous for her role in the ABC sitcom Full House, is also included in the list of celebrities with breathtaking backyards. She and her fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannuli have recently put up their L.A. mansion on the market for a whopping $28.7 million. Her daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose also lived here. In case you’re wondering why the price is too high, just take a look at the picture. Besides its 12,000-square-foot living area that fits six bedrooms and nine baths, its yard is something to watch out for.

Plus, it had amenities like a media room, a library, a 5-car garage, and more. The home has a great view of Bel-Air Country Club which is just located near their mansion. Other celebrities and well-to-do people would have their yard architecturally designed, but Loughlin just wanted hers to be spacious and green. Her investment planning of putting up a golf course in her yard is quite impressive. The house was once owned by the legendary actor Charles Bronson.

Kirstie Alley

News about Kirstie Alley putting up in the market her Isleboro, Maine home for almost 30 years flashed early this year, and her asking price is at $2.35 million. Public records show that it was back in 1993 when Alley started building her 3,371-square-foot living space. However, it was just ten years later when she finally acquired her Pendleton Point Road House to her name.

The property’s listing information includes five bedrooms, four and a half baths, wooden flooring that run throughout the main living areas, and a beautiful outdoor patio overlooking the breathtaking bay perfect for unwinding. We believe that the elevated viewing deck, where a gazebo is ready to host guests, makes it quite an experience with the grand, leafy trees that give fresh air. The garden is surrounded by trees and plants, making it look like a forest in the comforts of her home. It may look old-fashioned, but it still suits Kirstie Alley’s flavors.

Mindy Kaling

Famous for her role in The Office, Mindy Kaling is a proud owner of Frank Sinatra’s former home in Malibu. All thanks to her timely decision of purchasing the estate as it is perfect for the times that we are living in now. With month-long home quarantine, this property’s yard can make your stay a well-deserved rest or as an alternative, you can walk on the beach. Look at the view from the patio.

It isn’t only about the clouds and different colors of the day that you can see from there but also the lush trees and beautiful pint-sized swimming pool that is secured in the backyard. With rich amenities such as a wide balcony, indoor/outdoor bar that overlooks Broad Beach, we can only assume that her beachfront property is equipped with home security. It even has a website and it’s called house also has a guest room, which is a perfect place to welcome visitors.

Pharrell Williams

American rapper and singer Pharrell Williams owns a floor-to-ceiling glass-windowed home with a rooftop patio anyone would surely love. However, quite recently, Pharrell put the investment property on the market. For whatever reason he’d do that, we know many would die to have this spacious place since it has one of the most enviable backyards. The 17,000-square-foot mansion is valued at $17 million for a ten-bedroom mega home that sits on a private hilltop overlooking Los Angeles.

Even more mesmerizing is how the utterly unique house looks on the outside. Of course, the property yard is filled with sports facilities, ponds, a poolside bar, and a backyard pool with a cascading waterfall, where Pharell and his guests can truly enjoy. It also has a 200-foot garage where he can park his lavish cars. The house was often compared to Google headquarters due to its lush glass structure. The house is the ultimate dream for many people, including us.

Lilly Singh

Lilly Singh is a YouTube sensation famous for her A Little Late With Lilly Singh late-night show. She recently purchased a home in Los Angeles. The property has a unique feature and is a good spot for a panoramic view of the mountains and city. For sure, while everyone else tries to sit still in their homes, Singh is in this place, making sure she’s up and about anytime her concert would be a go anyway, despite the current condition around the world.

The home’s yard has an alfresco dining area by the swimming pool, which had been a worthwhile spot in the time of quarantine and a perfect place to reduce boredom while staying at home. For a $4.1 million investment, this real estate property is a good catch and could be something Singh can hold on to for a long while. Her home spans 6,361 square feet of space and from the foyer, it boasts elegance with white pin lights. The expansive kitchen has 2 gas ranges, and one of the five bedrooms possesses a superb view of the San Fernando Valley.

Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark

American TV personality, fashion blogger, and Vanderpump Rules queen bee, Stassi Shroeder, together with her partner Beau Clark, own a Mediterranean-style four-bedroom with four baths property. The couple has 2,900-square-foot living space, but best about their mid-1920s abode is their beautiful backyard where a lovely, tin-roofed pavilion sits perfectly. Their residence is in Los Angeles, and the couple has made modest funding of $1.7 million on their home.

We bet even their financial advisor loved this place too! With the property’s homey features, we are sure that the couple is having the time of their life quarantining together. Imagine the cozy talks they share with their closest family and friends at the backyard pavilion!  Who wouldn’t love that? It has a traditional Spanish style design and is painted in white, which was Stassi’s preference. The interior also boasts a retro design, and Stassi made some changes to it, especially on the kitchen area.

Judy Garland

Somewhere Over the Rainbow singer and actress once lived in this beautiful Hollywood Hills home built back in 1941 with her then-husband Vincente Minnelli. Although Sammy Davis Jr. currently owns this investment property now, it is still best remembered as Judy’s Garland earliest homes. Imagine what the walls can tell us if they could only talk! Currently listed at $6.1 million market value, the mansion boasts 4,999-square-foot living area with an expansive backyard that feats a breathtaking zen-like garden with patio furniture – perfect for chilling under a canopy of trees.

The master bedroom of the big home takes plenty of natural light in through a row of big windows overlooking the backyard garden. The property also feats a stunning guesthouse right next to a lavish swimming pool perfect for those who want to take a dip. Surprisingly, the estate also has a secret passage going to the media room via the bookshelves.

Halle Berry

Many will agree that Halle Berry’s Malibu mansion is a dream home like no other! Catwoman’s oceanfront property is a luxury only afforded by and fitting for a SAG winner like her. With a home this lavish, we wonder what quarantine was like for Berry and her children Nahla and Maceo. The forced lockdown in the second quarter of the year prohibited people from going down to the beach, but to Halle Berry and her household, it may not have been an issue at all, since her home got the amenities that really suit her in order to fend off the lockdown-induced boredom.

Although there’s not really a backyard as wide to call her own, the private patio and viewing decks of her beachfront mansion are nonetheless extraordinary because of the ocean view present from the outside. We say investments like this are a winner, especially in these times.

Dolly Parton

Dolly Parton lives in the same neighborhood as Marilyn Monroe, and her place is lovely! Despite her being an iconic country music star, her luxury estate in Brentwood may be a surprise compared to other Hollywood big names’ properties. The Jolene singer shares this traditional home with her husband, Carl Dean, and we are sure that the couple is safe and has been having the time of their lives in blissful isolation in their estate. No one has ever been near their home, but this aerial view will show just how large their backyard is.

We can see that it features even more beautiful gazebos up close and a full tennis court good for spending extra time while under quarantine period. Since no one has reportedly stepped into their property, this place must have an effective home security system made specifically for their peace of mind. With the decorations present at Parton’s home, she surely has a fashionable side when it comes to home interior designs.

Sean Connery

The original James Bond actor Sean Connery is now retired and lives permanently in the Bahamas. Despite owning several remarkable houses across Scotland and Spain, New Providence Island has been home to this highly esteemed 90-year old actor. Impressive of his real estate portfolio though, is this recently listed on the market property. The villa has an asking price of $33.9 million, which is just a good money management tactic, given that the stunning abode sits in front of the lovely coastal view at the French Riviera.

The estate also boasts a 10,000-square-feet area with a design influenced by the Belle Époque Style that erects up to six-story high. With the property clocking in close to an acre, other than an indoor pool, its backyard holds two guest villas and an outdoor pool. With those amenities featured in his luxurious home, the actor won’t need to spend money on going to expensive Monte Carlo hotels just to experience relaxation.

Amy Schumer

This New York City apartment of the famous American stand-up comedian and actress Amy Schumer is up on the market for $2.075 million. For an NYC apartment, hers feats a lot of space. It is quite a dwelling place that credits a lovely rooftop perfect for warm weather, especially for dinner parties or family hangouts. The roof deck also features a garden and a stellar view of New York’s Hudson River on the Upper West Side.

The said apartment has 5 and a half bathrooms and 5 bedrooms, plus the area measures 4,500 square feet in total. Can you imagine Schumer’s celebrity friends hanging out here and just having a downtime talk about their life? Because we do! We can only assume how hard it must be for Schumer to let this one go. Anyhow, the actress has moved on and now lives in Martha’s Vineyard, which is a Massachusetts island.

Bethenny Frankel

The Real Housewives of New York City main cast, Bethenny Frankel, is a happy owner of a Bridgehampton country house. The actress loves going home to this treasure every chance she gets. The vacation property boasts five spacious bedrooms, all of which have a peaceful and cozy feel. Best about this property is the paradise of a backyard it has, a swimming pool and an outdoor lounging area under the shade of a tree that gives out a let’s-hang-out-here vibe. The kitchen has pricey appliances, especially the gas range and the huge fridge.

The house also features a dining room and a breakfast nook surrounded by windows that lead to sunlight exposure.The reality TV star can’t help but share how much she loves her home away from the city. Well, it’s a perfect place for hosting dance parties with fellow mom-friends and their kids. Of course, she wouldn’t need home finance since she has a net worth of $70 million.

Kris Jenner

Famous TV personality, Kris Jenner, is the mother of the influential and business-successful Kardashian-Jenner clan. Since her children already have lives of their own, Kris gets to enjoy this lovely Los Angeles abode by herself. This estate features a stunning backyard anyone would want to have! With a backyard pool like Kris’s, we can only imagine how comfortable and relaxing she gets by every day.

With the 2015 makeover she did in her home, the matriarch achieved the fun and splashy home she desired for her family. And we bet it’s just the way her children and grandchildren like it to be! But, take note, this is just one of the several houses Kris owns. We’re sure she kept all her home insurance intact all these years since she already has tons of money in her pocket. Back in August 2020, her Hidden Hills mansion was sold to Katharina Harf for $15 million.

Dominic West

English actor and musician Dominic West talks about his quaint and lovely 1840s Shepherd’s Bush London home renovation. The actor is married to a landscape designer, Catherine FitzGerald, and the college sweethearts converted together their multi-apartment dwelling into a single residential home for their family. On its entrance hall comes a checkered flooring and yellow-painted walls, plus a carpeted stairs. Around the house, you can spot a couple of artworks. Their kitchen does not only contain spices or condiments and other cooking items but also bookshelves for recipe books.

Other than the colorful featured spaces in their home where most of the designs and roofing are in a red-patterned theme, the garden is the most refreshing place. The garden is full of vegetable plants, and it’s also a spot where their kids are playing. “It’s very neighborly. We even shout over the wall,” said Dominic’s wife in an interview with People Magazine. The family enjoys outdoor dining too, where they are surrounded by lovely trees, plants, and flower beds.

Sarah Mclachlan

Canadian singer and songwriter Sarah Mclachlan was once the proud owner of a palatial Whistler home in British Columbia. That property was quite a real estate envy for many before she gave it up and sold it for $10 million. Quite the investment property it was, it featured an 8,320-square-foot living area that any ski-lover would dream of. Other than the mansion’s lovely and spacious rooms, the property has an additional 2,500-square-foot outdoor space that features a guesthouse and a stunning backyard where never a dull moment exists.

There’s also the outdoor patio, which we think has hosted many good conversations with family and friends. Her home includes a cinema perfect for her visitors who want to watch movies, as well as a chef’s kitchen where the meals for her guests are prepared. It sure does look like a place where feasts can be enjoyed. Like other homes of prominent people, it won’t be complete without a wine cellar. Her British Columbia home has a total of elegant 7 bathrooms and 5 bedrooms.

Julia Roberts

America’s Sweetheart, Julia Roberts, has put up her Star’s West Village apartment for sale at $4.5 million. This New York City abode has a stunning chic terrace with a breathtaking view of the New York skyline that is common in many apartments based in the Big Apple. Not only that, but it also boasts a three-bedroom with three baths apartment that has a fireplace located in the living room, an open kitchen, a library, and a terrace with views of the surrounding West Village.

We can surely imagine her visitors enjoying these featured amenities. For a good reason, Roberts is moving out of this apartment to a new one, and we highly doubt she needed a home loan since she’s one of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood. She finally sold it for $5.35 million and it is higher than the asking price, making it an addition to her net worth. With news about the pandemic, Julia and her family are safely confined in their new home and have all they need.

Phil Collins

English singer-songwriter Phil Collins bought the former home of fellow musician Jennifer Lopez. The property is located in Miami and brags a yard like no other. One of the reasons why he managed to live there is because his children are based in Florida and he doesn’t want to go far from them.The mansion is 12,153 square feet in living space and features outdoor attractions like a cabana with kitchen, a koi pond, a boat dock, and a stunning swimming pool 60 feet deep. Of course, the property extends to a perfect, breathtaking waterfront view of Miami Beach.

This mansion is certainly one of the proofs that his huge efforts in music have paid off. Collins bought the Mediterranean-style home property for $33 million, and it’s certainly quite a catch! We’re not sure, though, if he paid in full or required a mortgage, but with his total net worth of $300 million, we can quite assume that he paid it in full. Anyway, living in the property gives the everyday vacation feeling and has a flawless view that will probably inspire Collins to write new songs!

Jeff Bridges

Actor and singer Jeff Bridges, famous for his TV series Sea Hunt, moved out of his previous California investment property in exchange for something new. But checking out his listed property for $29.5 million, we are just totally blown away by his stunning backyard with probably the most relaxing swimming pool, a recording studio suited for his profession as a singer, a movie theater, a meditation room, an outside kitchen, and a lounging area.

His guests will surely enjoy his property because it can give them a dose of entertainment on those amenities we’ve mentioned. His yard doesn’t only have garden plants but also feats a fruit orchard, aloe trees, and hiking trails. Definitely, an outdoor activity that’ll chase away the boredom from you. The mansion also boasts roof decks overlooking the ocean, some scenic view of green trees, and other Californian homes. The handsome landscape of the property’s expansive yard is also worth the afternoon stroll.

Denise Richards

American actress and model Denise Richard’s Hidden Hills, California property was put up for sale for $7.65 million. But unfortunately, she did not have any takers and only accepted $4.6 million, which was a significant loss for her. The estate features an area of 8,300 square feet with a yard that speaks the perfect “rest and relaxation.” There’s a cabana, a dog hotel, a wet bar, a unique wine tasting room, an outdoor kitchen, and two swimming pools with waterfalls and grotto!

Ideal for a serene setting, the backyard landscape is perfectly crafted for a resort-like ambiance, and her guests will surely like that part of her home. But aside from the yard, the entire home has superior quality finishes and detail that will make you feel like you’re on vacation, and at the same time, you’ll appreciate the privacy with installed home security system. Her former home was rented by Angelina Jolie back in 2016 for about $30,000.

Jason Derulo

For the dancer, singer, and songwriter Jason Derulo, a 2.5-acre property in Coconut Creek, Florida, is worth the money. The house is $2.9 million in market value, and the Wiggle and Savage Love singer built a tropical paradise in it to house an exquisite backyard with a pool, waterfalls, and an elevated spa. Can you imagine the parties Jason must have hosted here? For sure, he’s collected a lot of fun memories in this place!

The 13,000-square-foot home boasts seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a dining room with Italian marble flooring, and a dance rehearsal and private recording studio, where he surely spends most of his time given his profession. This property is back on the market again, and whoever decides to buy this Mediterranean-style mansion is indeed a lucky man. From its overall looks, it is a perfect home where the singer can spend his vacation due to its elegance inside and out. With its style and ambiance, this house will definitely inspire him to work on his music.

Paula Deen

Television personality and cooking show host Paula Deen sells her 5.5-acre real estate property investment in Savannah, Georgia, for a fair amount of $12.5 million. Her home is such a paradise that features a backyard like no other—considering that the property is a big one and includes a croquet court, saltwater fish tank, koi pond, and a chicken coop. In addition, her home dons a mix of French and Caribbean looks. Moreover, there’s a barn of 10,000 square feet where they say it can fit two R.V. cars.

The estate also has a dock house and many other rooms that will surely blow your mind. Since she is a cooking show host, we can imagine her hanging out at her gourmet kitchen while cooking delicious food. Another aspect of the property is a stocked pond that exudes serenity and solitude and can change one’s state of mind. How much more if Chef Paula serves you a mouthwatering dish while you relax in her backyard!

Martha Stewart

Businesswoman and TV personality Martha Stewart has it all in her Maine Estate. It is a 63-acre land property where the main house was originally built back in 1925 for Edsel Ford. Now belonging to Stewart, the house remains stylish and unfazed with the fear of being outdated in the modern world. The best thing about the property is the massive space of a yard that highlights a terrace with lounge chairs, gazebos, and a dining area.

Additionally, the house is surrounded by kiwi vines and it is overlooking Seal Harbor. From the inside, you can spot a lot of vintage decors and furniture. The naturalistic landscaping from the roofings down to the floor brings a fully immersive experience. In an interview with Architectural Digest, Stewart called this her “favorite place”. According to her, her guests always wander in and out: taking a short walk onto the east terrace or venturing off on a hike.

Bret Michaels

Famed Poison band singer and songwriter Bret Michaels’ abode is something to envy about. His property stands confident with 6,797-square-foot living space in Calabasas, California. The Mediterranean villa was built in 1989, and it has six bathrooms, six bedrooms, a resort-style pool with covered patio, a stone dining pavilion, a spacious gym, and a vast space for outdoor activities. On the second floor of the mansion is a terrace perfect for unwinding while looking at the surrounding hills’ scenic view.

The guests can also enjoy the cold natural breeze coming from the terrace. Imagine all the rock band parties hosted here by Michaels! However, recently, he put the property on sale for $4.49 million and is now creating a new home. Did you know that the rock star is into designing and developing real estate properties? Talk about wise investment planning! It can also help his current net worth increase.

LeBron James

Basketball superstar LeBron James owns a South Florida waterfront estate that boasts a dockage for his two 60-foot yachts. This property presents a palatial residence with a massive 16,680-square-foot living area. Currently, it is in the market for a whopping $17 million. You might say it’s quite expensive, but with a short glance at the attractive backyard, you might be tempted to acquire some home loans! Anyhow, LeBron’s house is located directly in front of the Biscayne Bay, one of Miami’s oldest communities.

Aside from the yachts, he also brags his 4,500-square-foot entertainment space, 500-bottle wine cellar, a private master rooftop sun deck, an infinity-edge pool, a marble-topped kitchen, and more. Imagine this house used as a celebration venue if his team won the NBA Championship! We are certain that the events or parties may have already happened there even though it is not shown on television. Now that he’s returning to Cleveland, we look forward to featuring his new home!

Matthew Perry

Matthew Perry is most recognized for his role as Chandler Bing in the hit sitcom Friends. He once owned a cliffside home in Malibu before he sold it to an unidentified buyer at a fair price of $10.65 million. The contemporary Malibu estate is known as the Pier House since it overlooks the lovely view of the Malibu Pier. This precious 5,500-square-foot home accents a breathtaking view from the living room, with sliding glass walls opening to a spacious deck with a pool and a fire pit.

Everything about the cliff mansion, including the picturesque bedrooms, is facing towards the ocean view. The staff of the moving company that Matthew hired must have enjoyed their short time working in and out of this property. Matthew is lucky to have stayed in this fabulous house because of the available amenities that will make him escape from boredom, just like the ping-pong table and more.

Nancy O’Dell

Entertainment Tonight anchor Nancy O’Dell also has the insight to share about making her living space homey and cozy. In an interview with People magazine, Nancy said, “I wanted to make the outdoors feel like an indoor room.” True enough, her residential space is warm and welcoming. The famed Entertainment Tonight host’s lavish 8,926 square feet home is located in Pasadena, California, and has amenities such as a library, chef’s kitchen, swimming pool, spa, and many more.

She also shared how she always had the knack for pillows and that she’s constantly changing them on the chairs and the chaise lounge. If you ask us, we’d want to stay here all day and probably laze around and read the papers. We’d also hang out at the pool area, but it’s merely just our wishful thinking. Our credit cards and savings won’t even afford this elegant, romantic, and tranquil open space.

Sean “Diddy” Combs

American rapper and businessman Sean Combs, better known as Puff Daddy or P. Diddy, has an enormous New Jersey estate. It is an all-brick manor that highlights seven bedrooms, ten bathrooms, a mahogany-paneled library, a home theater, a six-car garage, and an expansive yard full of outdoor recreational facilities. For those who are fitness-minded, the mansion’s indoor and outdoor area boasts a racquetball court, a tennis court, a putting green, and a fully equipped gym.

Of course, a backyard won’t be complete without a swimming pool, but P. Diddy can’t get enough. He even installed two waterfalls in it. We could imagine this spot being used as his private concert venue or any kind of parties. With grand facilities like these, for sure, P. Diddy has put up the state of the art home security system in every corner. He surely amassed the costs of his home, especially refurbishments and mortgages, through his clothing line business and his stable music career.

Scarlett Johansson

The world’s highest-paid actress since 2018, Scarlett Johansson, purchased a 1940s residential property that has a view of the Hollywood sign. This Los Feliz home is valued at $3.88 million. It has a 3,500-square-foot living space with four bedrooms, six bathrooms, an open kitchen, an outdoor grill area, a gym where she can retain her desired weight and prepare herself for her roles on upcoming movies. The estate also has a living slash entertainment room that opens to the yard where the large swimming pool is.

From where the home is situated, views of the inspiring Hollywood sign can be seen, and it must have reminded the Avengers actress of her humble beginnings in the industry. Do we need to mention that her backyard has an 8-person spa and cabana? If that isn’t enough, she also has a master bedroom with a beautiful skylight roofing! She bought it back in 2015 for about $4 million.

Tom Cruise

This European-style, Hollywood Hills home is indeed a getaway from the L.A. hustle, and it’s owned by none other than A-list actor Tom Cruise. This place has nothing much to offer except utmost rest, serenity, and privacy. For celebrities like Cruise, the estate is worth the penny since it gives the tranquility a person with a busy life needs. The home features an Italian farmhouse-inspired kitchen, three bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, wide-plank oak floorings, and a living room with a vaulted ceiling and fireplace.

To top it off, it has an outdoor patio that includes a spa, a lagoon-heated pool, and a wine-tasting room. Quite a spot the Vanilla Sky and Mission Impossible actor has in this 2.5 acre, private property! Eva Longoria bought this home from Tom Cruise for $11.4 million. However, 5 years later, she sold it for $8.25 million instead of $11.4 million, making the actress lose sums of profit.

Chris Harrison

The Bachelor host Chris Harrison showed us what the best bachelor pad should look like. Located in Westlake Village, California, the TV host’s hideaway is something that a true gentleman should have. Of course, like the house we see in the reality show, Harrison’s home also has its own version of a rustic and comfy hot tub. The TV host revealed how he has a personal touch with everything inside his four-bedroom residence. He shared with People magazine that he didn’t hire a professional interior designer.

However, we think he still consulted a financial advisor on how he should properly spend his money on this estate. But, looking at the extravagant property, we believe Harrison has the talent for arts! With his net worth of $16 million, it is safe to say that he can sustain any kind of costs associated in his house, including mortgages or renovations if he chooses to add new amenities.

Channing Tatum & Jenna Dewan-Tatum

There was a time when Channing Tatum moved to Beverly Hills with his former wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum. Together they put in an asset costing approximately $6 million for the 90210 home. The big house has six bedrooms with six baths, and almost every room opens onto patios and verandas. The spacious front and backyards feature the gorgeous-looking pool, spa, and outdoor fireplace, while inside the house, we can spot a marble-mounted kitchen, cozy and spacious living room, and formal dining room.

In addition, there’s a billiard table, piano, and chessboard on the main floor of the house. Tatum’s residence is a gated property that is equipped with the top of the line home security system. When it comes to keeping their space private and away from the paparazzi, the place is just perfect since it is well-secluded with massive oak trees. Overall, the 4,853-square-foot Beverly Hills home exudes a sophisticated and relaxing ambiance.

Joe Manganiello

Joe Manganiello is best known for his performances in True Blood, Magic Mike, Spider-Man, The Sleepover, and What to Expect When You’re Expecting. However, most people don’t know how he used to own this cool Hollywood Hills property that boasts quite an amazing feat that includes the lush four-bedroom and three-bath features. He sold it for a little under $2 million. His former home welcomes you to a spacious yet cozy living space with fireplaces.

You can also find a hot tub, a swimming pool, a fire pit, a master suite filled with a walk-in closet, and stone flooring in the backyard oasis. Those amenities, landscape, and features of his home are the dream of any hardworking average Joe. His then-fiancée and now-wife, actress Sofia Vergara, has purchased a $10.6 million mansion in Beverly Hills, and we think Joe sold his former house in order to move in with her.

Giuliana and Bill Rancic

Italian-American showbiz reporter and fashion police Giuliana Rancic relocated from Los Angeles to Chicago. In 2015, the TV personality moved into a beautiful brownstone home in Chicago with her husband, Bill Rancic, and their son. Their new residence, a renovated house from the 1880s, is so lovely that the couple just had to open their doors and let People Magazine feature their new space.

Talk about great outdoors, their new home highlights the outdoor space with an upper-level deck and a brick fireplace, where they can hang out on cold evenings. The house is located in the Gold Coast neighborhood of Chicago, and of course, it goes with the state of the art home security system that’ll keep the entire family safe. The house has a total of 5 bedrooms, and it has notable amenities, including a media room and a full bar, which is surely a hangout place for their guests and friends.

Brooke Shields

Wasn’t it only last July that Brooke Shields flaunted her ageless figure in a snapshot taken in her Southampton home backyard? Oh well, some of us do not get that kind of genes. It is not just her timeless beauty that we admire about her, but especially her gorgeous Hampton house! Shields’ half-acre property at the heart of Southampton village features a rich history from 1920. The estate was exquisitely renovated to house six bedrooms, six full and two half baths, an expansive terrace, library, and media room.

If you ask us, our favorite part of her home is the inviting backyard with a 20-by-50-foot heated gunite pool and pool house. The actress can have all the pool parties and barbecue cook-off that she wants with her family and friends. With a massive property like this, we’d love to try staying at this house. We could use our credit cards just to spend the weekends here!

Sean Penn

With his parents being experienced figures in the film industry, it comes as no surprise that Sean Penn eventually followed suit. In fact, during his childhood, he would often create short films with his friends, including now-famous actors such as Charlie Sheen and Emilio Estevez. Beginning his career under the spotlight with a brief appearance in Little House on the Prairie, Sean has since garnered widespread recognition for his acting credits in many films, including Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Carlito’s Way, and Mystic River.

Thanks to the fortune he’s earned through the years, the award-winning actor has claimed ownership of several houses, including this Malibu home. In recent news, though, Sean placed this up on the market for $6.55 million. Besides the usual bedrooms and bathrooms, this humble abode has a lovely backyard, providing residents with a swimming pool, a rose garden, and a vine-covered entertaining area.

Salma Hayek

Before receiving worldwide fame, Salma Hayek was already making waves in the local scene. In fact, one of her earlier acting gigs was for the 1994 film El Callejón de Los Milagros, translated as “Miracle Alley,” which takes credit for more awards than any other movie in the Mexican film industry. Since then, she’s had the chance to star in Frida, From Dusk till Dawn, and The Hitman’s Bodyguard.

Besides acting, Salma has also dabbled with other endeavors, such as her production company Ventanarosa. With all these projects she’s tackled, it comes as no surprise that the actress has since accumulated quite a fortune, and a good portion of it is undoubtedly spent on her family. From her Instagram post, we could see the actress has a lovely backyard filled with rich greens and, of course, a swimming pool. Definitely, it’s a nice place to spend some quality time with the family.

 Jessica Simpson

More often than not, a hobby can become a considerable investment in the long run. Such is the case for Jessica Simpson, who developed a talent for singing during her childhood. She eventually went and auditioned for a spot in The Mickey Mouse Club, and though she didn’t land a part in the show, that didn’t stop her for a moment. Since then, Jessica has had a good run in the music industry, having released more than a few hit tracks throughout her career.

Thanks to all the work she has done over the years, Jessica and her family can now relax in a friendly and cozy house, though the backyard is quite akin to a world-class resort. Surrounded by opulent greenery plus a few toys is the singer’s pool area, which also provides a lovely view of the sky and the mountains ahead.

Kylie Jenner

The entertainment industry has introduced us to many big-name figures, such as the Kardashians and the Jenners. Thanks to the reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashian, each member of the family has since garnered a skyrocketing degree of popularity, and that includes Kylie Jenner. Along with her ventures in the fashion business, Kylie has surely earned quite a fortune over the years.

For all her achievements, it’s safe to say that Kylie rewards herself from time to time. Well, one such gift would be one of her most recent purchases, a mansion located in Los Angeles. Reflecting the reality TV star’s celebrity lifestyle, the house is also designed to be an ideal place to party in, so Kylie can invite her friends over whenever she wants. With that said, perhaps the go-to entertainment spot would undoubtedly be its backyard, which features a swimming pool, surrounded by scenic views of the house’s lush trees.

Gabrielle Union

Like other aspiring actors, Gabrielle Union began her acting career playing minor parts. After a while, she got the chance to star in the 2000 cheerleading flick, Bring It On, for which she has since given credit for boosting her celebrity status. Other projects the actress has become known for over the years include Think Like a Man and its sequel Think Like a Man Too, Bad Boys II, and Being Mary Jane.

Although she prefers to keep most of her personal life away from the spotlight, that doesn’t mean Gabrielle is one to shy away from sharing a few photos of it. One such example is of her wearing a blue-and-white dress, subtly showcasing her pool area. Along with its calming scenery, it has white patio furniture and, of course, a swimming pool with a minimalistic aesthetic, making the entire area both relaxing and pleasing to look at.

Simone Biles

A passion can be discovered in the most unexpected of places. For Simone Biles, she found her love for gymnastics during a field trip when she was six years old. With words of encouragement from the instructor, Simone has since made quite an investment with her skills, practicing for almost 32 hours per week. All that hard work paid off in the end, though, with Simone now being the world’s third most decorated gymnast, winning a total of 30 medals.

Of course, like many athletes, Simone also deserves some time away from the sport to refresh and reinvigorate herself. Luckily, her home has just the thing she needs – a swimming pool. Not only is it one of the many relaxing places to go to, but swimming is also an excellent way for her to stay in shape for any upcoming competitions – talk about hitting two birds with one stone.

Julianne Moore

Having an enchanted forest in your backyard is something a lot of people dream of. Lucky for Julianna Moore, she has created an entirely magical place at the back of her home. Her terrace is filled with fresh greenery that makes her outdoor space feel comfortable and secure. On top of that, the flooring is made of bluestone pavers that blend in seamlessly with the vines and bushes.

There is a black fence, as well, that creates a boundary, but it is not too noticeable. Overall, when you walk around her backyard, you won’t feel like you’re still inside the city. The tall trees make for a great shade, so Moore and her guests won’t have to worry about the heat of the sun.

Katie Couric

When the back of your house opens up to a beautiful garden and a big pool, a nice afternoon out on your lounge chair should be in order. Katie Couric sure enjoys the greens and the blooming flowers in her backyard. She can bask in the sun while swimming among the petals.

Even her fence is covered in plants, so her home security might just be better because the foliage helps conceal the private space. To the side is a pavilion where she can stay in the shade when it gets too hot outside. Even though there is a lot of open space, this shade can make spending time outdoors still doable even at high noon or when it’s raining.

Nicole Richie

Socialite Nicole Richie has created an entirely beautifully lighted space in her backyard. She made available a lot of seats so that she can have as many guests as she wants. To make it easy for people to lounge around anywhere, the floorings Nicole’s patio has different levels and elevations.

The pool is set in the middle, where it is accessible to anyone who would want to jump in. As fairy lights scatter above and around their hangout spot, the ambiance of the place is very serene. A quick Google search would tell us that warm lighting is a great way to set a welcoming and engaging vibe around your space. If she wanted to bring her special someone there, then it would be truly romantic for them!

Giorgio Armani

When you are a fashion designer who has not only earned millions for your designs but also has received so much credit in the world of fashion, it is only but fitting that you would boast the best trends inside your home.

Any fashionista’s home would not be complete without a swimming area— and Armani has an infinity pool, no less.

Candice Bergen and Marshall Rose

A porch complete with comfortable cushions is as cozy as it gets. In their house in East Hampton in New York, Candice Bergen and Marshall Rose have a little sitting area in the backyard that looks out to the outdoors but has roofing to cover them from the shade. The site has a complete living room with a full-sized couch, matching loveseats, and a coffee table in the middle to hold their refreshments.

It’s just the perfect place to read in during the afternoon and also a comfortable place to receive guests. Even their dog has a great time staying outside and not leaving its pillows! The space was designed by Jane Lappin and Arlene Gould, and the landscaping was by Edmund Hollander. Of course, it is not surprising that it took a whole team to create this masterpiece!

Ellen Pompeo

Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo has amassed a ton of money from her starring role in the hit TV drama series. Because she is a TV star, you can bet that her home is just as lovely as her performance. In her beautiful place in Los Angeles, Pompeo has a terrace with a living room in it. It’s a snug area that faces a great view of the city and the tall trees.

For the roofing, a Sunbrella awning was installed so that she and her guests could still feel safe despite being outdoors. Another thing is that they could hide from the harsh sun when needed without having to get rid of the cool breeze, so you could definitely say that it’s a win-win!

Night Shyamalan

If you’re a fan of all things fantastical and horrific, you would be familiar with filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan. He may be a great director of fiction films filled with paranormal or supernatural creatures, but he also likes to bring a bit of enchantment to his own home. The famed director placed a dining table set in the middle of his backyard.

If you ask us, the placement of the seating area under two trees makes the whole scene a degree more cinematic. He even put a three-piece pendant lighting set in the middle that could act as a chandelier. This dine-in-the-forest setup is found in his home in Ravenwood, Pennsylvania. Creative people sure do manage to spice up everything they touch!

Frédéric Fekkai

French celebrity Frédéric Fekkai is known for his beauty tips, makeup know-how, and stylish taste when it comes to cosmetics, high fashion looks, and beauty techniques.

Her backyard in her Calabasas home has a courtyard with three black couches in the midst of plants and a fireplace under the open sky. The flooring and the walls around the fireplace are all covered in tiles that blend into the background and allow the green to pop against the black and white.

George Clooney

Movie stars always have the best home improvement plans for their homes. No matter how simple or complicated their desired designs are, these Hollywood favorites can splurge on materials because money isn’t really a problem. George Clooney, for example, has the most stunning backyard in his home in Los Cabos in Mexico. A huge slatted and diagonal canopy is the first thing that comes into view when you enter the room.

Other than the beautiful piece, his space also features a bunch of vintage-themed pillows from John Robshaw, chairs from Ralph Lauren Home, a living room set from Legorreta + Legorreta, and cushions from Holly Hunt. All these elements come together perfectly with the high roofing. We can only imagine how much these high-end pieces cost!

Giada De Laurentiis

Who doesn’t love a bonfire? Giada De Laurentiis has recreated the ideal camping trip in her own backyard with a cozy setup. In her house in Southern California, a vintage sofa set sits on her outdoor kitchen. Though the flooring is tiled, the area is completely out in the open, so the breeze, the sky, and the fresh scents of nature are present.

An entire row of kitchen appliances that almost make up a full-sized kitchen sits across the sitting area. In the middle is a fire pit where she can roast her marshmallows if she wants to. Podocarpus trees were also planted to create a full wall on one side so that the TV personality and her guests could have the privacy they need when having an outdoor cooking party.

Patrick Dempsey

Eating your dinner out under the stars is really something most celebrities want in their homes. We can’t blame them, though! If the weather is great, staying out in the moonlight and the cool breeze is actually a relaxing and wonderful experience, especially when paired with good food and good company.

Patrick Dempsey and his wife Jillian wanted this so much that they made an investment of hiring Shrader Design to create the space that they wanted for their home in Malibu, California. To comply, the firm created a wicker canopy that stood up through a metal frame. It was not only sturdy, but it was also very beautiful to see. Now that the picture-perfect scene has been created for them, every night must be Instagram-worthy to the Dempseys.

Trudie Styler and Sting

Trudie Styler and Sting are a couple who really love the great outdoors. In their estate in Florence, Italy, a lot of dining spaces are available in the middle of lush greens. Their massive space is filled with foliage, and they have set up nooks in beautiful spots. Not to mention, they have a pergola made of oak that is 118 feet long.

The whole thing is covered in Chinese wisteria, and it houses an intimate dining set good for two, which is perfect for afternoon tea. On another area in their vast property is an alfresco dining area that seats up to 10 people. It seems like they found a great way to blend architecture and nature because a giant oak tree serves as their roofing for shade. With this setup, the whole scene looks like it came out of a storybook!

Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber

Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber have a spectacular view next to their property in Los Cabos, Mexico. Because they are so close to the beach, the couple made sure that the scenery they have won’t go to waste. For this reason, they placed investment money on creating the best outdoor space by the beach. One sure-fire way that Crawford and Gerber ensured this is through creating a living room outside with a huge fire pit in the middle.

As for the whole terrace, they made use of Niwala limestone exported from Spain. The couple also has a dining table that was fully customized for them right by their pool. Around the table are director’s chairs straight from top furniture designer Christian Liaigre. Overall, the palm trees and the water make it feel like a great vacation home.

Reese Witherspoon

A massive piece of land can offer you endless possibilities. Reese Witherspoon owns a ranch that is 10 acres wide, and she definitely used it to its potential. The Legally Blonde star has a patio in her estate that flaunts a beautiful architectural design that is entirely unique Flowers, and vines adorn the area, making it look more ethereal and inviting to guests. The seats are great, too, as the cushion makes them look so soft and comfortable for resting.

A lot of parties that include good food, great people, and so much entertainment must really happen a lot in this area. Witherspoon really upped her decorating game as she used what was already naturally there to bring a certain degree of glow to her home.

Kate Moss and Johnny Depp

Back when Kate Moss and Johnny Depp were still together, they lived in a beautiful mansion with a gorgeous patio. This is located in the former couple’s home in New York City. Stunningly, the garden created a view for whoever was lounging around in the seating area. The backyard looks so full of plants that it makes you forget it sits right smack in the middle of a highly urbanized city.

For those who like to come home to a calm and serene place, the patio is definitely one for the books. Nature really gets credit for giving a  relaxing vibe even though there are buildings surrounding it. In our opinion, decks like this are a great way to get in touch with Mother Earth without having to travel far.

Ralph Lauren

Being one of the biggest fashion icons of the world may have its perks, but it certainly also has its pressures. Ralph Lauren really flaunted his style in the design of his Bedford home in New York. Here, the billionaire designer has a rear terrace in his backyard that he uses to entertain his guests and have a good time. Of course, it has to be a grand setup! The area doubles as a dining space for al fresco dinners when needed.

It overlooks his massive estate filled with thriving trees and plants –even the walls to the side of the veranda are covered in vines! As a tie-in, the beautiful view from the terrace complements the blue and brown hues that Lauren used for his furniture. Staying outside will certainly make anyone feel closer to nature to some degree— and Ralph is no exception!

Jennifer Aniston

Actress and TV host Jennifer Aniston frequently boasts her properties on social media and on mainstream media. While all of her multi-million homes are worth flaunting, there are positively striking standouts, such as this Beverly Hills estate. The Friends star converted this building from the ‘70s into a beautiful retreat house where she goes on vacations to relax and where she brings her friends and family along to have social gatherings – sometimes, they even make solemn soul-searching trips!

The space features two umbrellas and several dining areas that could accommodate multiple groups at a time. Ultimately, Jen gave credit to designer Stephen Shadley for helping her create the beautiful set up that she has on her terrace overlooking the forest view.

Diane Keaton

Diane Keaton also has one of the most eye-catching backyards ever. Clad in different hues of California tile, her cabana is very pleasing to the eye. She made sure that, at first glance, her outdoor space is already great to look at. It gets better when you eye the pool right beside it! The blue color of the water complements the many bright colors on the walls and the fireplace.

As a cherry on top of the grand design, the plants around the area also make the green pop all the more. This home is located in Bel-Air, Los Angeles, where Keaton spends a lot of time in. The acting veteran has surely installed a great home security system in her place as well, as her neighborhood is filled with high-profile individuals, herself included.

Adam Levine

Maroon 5’s frontman, Adam Levine, has amassed millions from his successful career as the lead singer and the face of his famous band. From his earnings in making music over the decades, the Payphone singer was able to afford grand properties, including this home in Hollywood Hills. The estate was originally a house that had a ranch theme, but he renovated it and transformed it into something more modern as well as more fitting to his personality.

Adam’s investment also included a massive terrace that faced the city and his pool on a lower level. The deck had palm trees all around it and pillows here and there to make hanging out more mellow. Generally, the vibe is welcoming but certainly luxurious.

Hank Azaria

Actor Hank Azaria made an investment in this property in Bel Air, California, where he lived with his partner Katie Wright and their son Hal. With the intention of making it into a family home where his kid could grow up, he made sure that every nook and cranny was a comfortable and appealing place to stay in.

Hank did not miss out on his outdoor living room as he even hired Trip Haenisch to design the entire space. The outdoor area featured chairs that were upholstered with fabric created for outdoor conditions by Perennials and a cocktail table by designer Holly Hunt. Certainly, a family man, the talented voice actor’s home looks like it was made for afternoons of spending quality time together.


Swimming pools are a luxury that most celebrities have. They either have access to expensive resorts and private islands or have one in their own backyards. While this has been made into a standard for the rich and famous singer and rapper, Drake has taken the pool game a degree higher. The swimming pool that he has in his Los Angeles estate’s backyard is no ordinary one.

It comes with caves and waterfalls that make wading in it an entirely new experience. On top of this, he also has another head-turning pool in another property in Toronto. That one is the size of an entire lake! Though it is humongous, it still looks tamer next to his adventurous LA pool.

Selena Gomez

Because she started her career so early, Selena Gomez has been earning since she was a child performing on Barney and Friends. Her career flourished splendidly throughout her teenage and adult years, so at 20 years old, she was able to collect enough investment money to purchase her own house with a splendid backyard. Her outdoor space was really impressive as she had a decent swimming pool, a guest house that was a different building from her main house, a basketball court, and an outdoor fireplace to brandish.

This home might not have been the only one that Gomez has purchased over the years, but it is arguably one of the most enviable ones of all her backyards. The actress and singer may live the life of a celebrity, but she also has her own hobbies to do back in her own yard. With this place, it’s safe to assume that the singer slash actress gets to be productive!

Justin Bieber

Being one of the most popular young stars in the world does not only mean an endless trail of screaming fans and constantly being plagued by paparazzi. It also means a big fat bank account that can spoil you very much. Take, for example, Justin Bieber, who made an investment in his mansion for $8.5 million. In it are amenities that regular houses will never have.

He has a swimming pool with zero edges, a lot of olive trees around the estate, and a fireplace that will keep him nice and toasty through cold nights out. Spending an entire summer here will be a wonderful experience that offers proximity to nature without having to sacrifice the comforts of being indoors. Pictures of him lounging around his backyard have been all over social media, and it is really enviable.

Did you know that the renowned TV personality had a fiberglass saltwater pool installed into her property?

The luxurious pool had to be lifted with a crane so that it could be properly planted into the ground. She is now enjoying the treat with her husband and kids, as evidenced by all the pictures Lisa has been sharing. It’s safe to say that all the work they went through was really worth it.


Having multiple properties may be a stretch for some people, but Columbian superstar Shakira enjoys having three homes and three separate backyards to go home to. Reportedly, the star really pays extra attention to her outdoor space because she loves enjoying her time in the backyard. The Hips Don’t Lie singer has a place in Columbia, her home country, as well as in Spain and Miami.

She recently put up her mansion in Miami for sale, so the spectacular area was published. It featured a deck, a swimming pool, a cabana, and a lot of palm trees that will really make you feel like you’re in a tropical paradise. Her home security is undoubtedly one of her top priorities, considering she’s such a famous celebrity who is adored everywhere in the globe.

Tamera Mowry-Housley

Alfresco dinners are not only stylish but also a great way to avoid feeling cramped when in a social gathering. This backyard owned by The Real star Tamera  Mowry – Housley and her husband Fox News anchor Adam Housley certainly feels like a space for parties and entertaining guests. Stunningly, the area has a Mediterranean vibe and is big enough to hold a dozen or so guests.

Since the pair are media personalities, it would be expected that they give importance to event locations to a certain degree. They made the place complete by making the swimming pool the centerpiece of the space, and an array of palm trees have been planted around to provide shade and aesthetic. A pizza oven and an outdoor kitchen are also present for them to cook up something delicious right outside.

Betsey Johnson

You would think a mobile home is too small for any kind of luxury, but Betsey Johnson puts this to the test by putting and full bathtub on her outdoor patio. Her place is located in Malibu, and it definitely eye-catching. The bright colors and the unique style really make it something that shows off the fashion designer’s style and personality.

Admitting to hating showers, Johnson said she uses the tub outside when the weather gets warm. Decorations of flowers and many vintage pieces surround the bathtub, making her bathing experience truly one of a kind. Her home security system must be in place, although her house’s style is a little eccentric. Being a celebrity, Betsey must have made her privacy a top priority.

Lo Bosworth

Laguna Beach star Lo Bosworth became a lifestyle businesswoman after her successful stint in the hit TV series. From New York City, she made the huge decision to move to Los Angeles, where she bought her new place. Her luxury bungalow had a mid-century modern theme that had a vast space in the backyard. She had a great time jazzing it up, too, as she loved the fact that she can now stay outside after living so long in the city’s concrete jungle.

Wanting an inviting space to come home to, she placed a very comfortable couch outside. The earth tones really brought in the natural vibe of the place.  If you ask us, the neutral colors that she used made the green in the plants pop to some degree.

Judy Greer

Judy Greer is most remembered for her performances in the hit movies Jurassic World and 13 Going on 30— and from these films, she has amassed quite a fortune along with her impressive credit. From her paycheck in her movies, she bought a home that linked the exterior to the interior space.

The actress used massive glass doors in order to see the divisions of her house. As a result, the zone felt freer and more welcoming this way. Her patio had lounge chairs and a dining area where she could spend her time with her loved ones while breathing in the cool breeze. The pastel and neutral hues that she used were not too overwhelming to the eyes. Overall, her furniture actually looked chic!

Tarek El Moussa

Tarek El Moussa has a beautiful home located in Costa Mesa, California. He has dubbed it as his “bachelor-dad pad” because it caters to his needs as a single guy and to the needs of his family at the same time. Finding a great compromise in his space at home, the Flip or Flop star had an extensive pool in his backyard. Other than this cool facility, he also has an area big enough for his kids to play basketball and soccer in.

Tarek said that his kids love outdoor activities, so he needed to make sure they had a place to go rollerblading and to ride their scooters as well. Personally, he has a jacuzzi to relax in and even entertain guests as well. The celebrity’s home insurance may be costly, but a family man will always do what it takes to provide the best for his children.

Laura Dern

A beautiful outdoor space will always bring out the best in your kids. That’s why actress Laura Dern made sure to reach her vision of putting up a treehouse for her teenagers in her home in California. Her kids, Ellery and Jaya, who have an age gap of three years, always have liked the outdoors, and Dern wanted to create a space for them that was both cozy and cool while being close to nature.

Her backyard is Bohemian-themed, and although an actual house on top of a tree is not present, the elements that she wanted for her children’s play and hangout space were present on the ground. We’re sure that to some degree, her children don’t mind losing the elevation if this is what they have for a backyard.

Martyn Lawrence Bullard

Interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard always gets credit for being the genius behind the stylish homes of many celebrities. Some of his regulars are the Kardashians and the Jenners, who love to experiment with chic and trendy interiors in their many properties. Bullard, himself, has a home to boast about as well. Looking super classy is the backyard in his mansion in Palm Springs.

It does not look like a house – it seems more like a famous landmark! In an interview with Architectural Digest, Bullard shared that the space was created to make room for entertainment and relaxation. The beautiful poolside pavilion has white walls and columns with high ceilings that house a living area. Beside the pool is an uncovered area where lounge chairs are located. What more could you ask out of a backyard?

Gisele Bündchen And Tom Brady

Supermodel Gisele Bündchen and husband athlete Tom Brady have a colossal property in Massachusetts, where they currently reside. Featured in an interview and tour on Vogue, their backyard seemed to stretch on forever. The entire estate was 5.2 acres wide, so it wasn’t really a surprise that the land that they called their backyard was very enormous.

Lush foliage and lots and lots of grass filled the horizon, making the whole place a huge playground for their kids. At one point, the loved-up couple decided to grow organic plants and vegetables in their home, but it was not really pursued because they put the place up for sale for an investment money amount of $40 million. This space would be perfect for big families and those who have lots of pets with them.

Jennifer Lopez And Alex Rodriguez

Once you can have a concert in your backyard, you surely have ample space for anything else you could think of. Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez love quality time with their family, so they need all the space they could get. Their backyard is undoubtedly one of the most spacious areas in their grand home.

The couple could play with their kids and do all sorts of crazy things like J-Lo’s concert and have a full baseball tournament. On top of the open space that is available for them, they also have a gigantic swimming pool, so nothing could possibly be lacking for this family. Jennifer and Alex just need to make sure that their home security is intact because they live such high-profile lives.

The A Walk to Remember lead star was able to buy a house for $2.56 million at the beginning of 2017. In her new estate, Mandy had luxurious facilities, and a home loan wasn’t even involved!

Located in Pasadena, California, her backyard is as gorgeous as it gets. The outdoor area overlooks beautiful views and houses a swimming pool. This specific area, she said, was the reason she decided to purchase the property. We don’t blame Mandy because the stunning views will surely make each morning worth waking up to!

Minnie Driver

Known for her memorable performance in Speechless, Minnie Driver has a gorgeous mobile home located in Malibu. Her backyard is incredibly stunning because she uniquely used her vintage surfboards to accentuate the place. It serves as a storage area for her hobby, but it also gives the space a cozy and beachy vibe.

Driver said that she loves her home because it really feels like a getaway from the pressure and the busybodies of Hollywood. She credits it as her favorite spot, and who could blame her? Who doesn’t love the beach? With an umbrella, a beach mat, and rustic floorboards, her little nook looks very Instagram-worthy as it is. Afternoon tea or early morning breakfasts here are divine, we imagine.

Maren Morris

Maren Morris is a beloved country singer who is known for hit singles like My Church. Her musical career has proved to have served her well over the years as she has earned not only a reputation but also millions of dollars in the past years. Maren’s house in Nashville really makes her personality shine through in its style, choice of furniture, and laid-back vibe.

Wayfair actually helped her decorate her outdoor space as she was at first hesitant about having a fire pit – a feature that is now the centerpiece of her backyard. She was very happy about the outcome, though, because now she can have campfires in her own home. The investment to create the seating area certainly paid off!

Tracey Edmonds

Extra TV host Tracy Edmonds did not only consider the size of the place, the number of rooms, and the available amenities when she made an investment to acquire this enormous mansion in Beverly Hills. What made her decide the most was the magnificent view that came with the property.

The stunning scenery that she can wake up to every day was a factor that she held on to because it made her feel blissful and relaxed every time she saw it. These were important to the TV personality because she uses the place to read and do meditation and yoga. Her home has six bedrooms in total and seven bathrooms. Tracy also has a beautifully shaped swimming pool and trees all around her property.

Cheyenne Jackson

One admirable quality of Cheyenne Jackson is that he loves the environment and nature in general. As an actor, he has appeared on various theater shows, where he started his career. His performance in All Shook Up in 2005 earned him a Theater World Award for the category “Outstanding Broadway Debut.” The stage is not his only platform either, as he also has been cast in numerous movies, including United 93 and Mutual Friends.

When it comes to selecting houses, given his love for nature, the star prioritizes being near canyons and hills. He and his husband, Jason Landau, found that perfect spot in their Los Angeles Nichols Canyon home. Their backyard is home to a 1,200 square-foot deck that has lovely views of the surrounding hills. The couple most likely had the latest home security system installed, so they could have peace of mind when relaxing inside the open-air deck and looking at the view outside.

Vanessa Hudgens

With many of her relatives being experienced musicians, it comes as no surprise that Vanessa Hudgens eventually developed a talent for singing. Soon after, she added acting to her skill set and began performing in local stage productions when she was ten years old. Since then, Vanessa has garnered widespread recognition for her performance in the High School Musical movies, Sucker Punch, Spring Breakers, and The Princess Switch.

For all the projects she’s worked on over the years, it’s safe to say Vanessa now has quite a fortune, enough to buy herself a nice house with a just-as-nice backyard. One such property that suits this is her former Mediterranean-style haven, which she recently sold for $3.895 million. By the looks of it, the place is undoubtedly cozy-looking, but it’s the pool area that undoubtedly made all that investment money worth it. Along with its clear blue waters, the pool also has its own waterfall and an adjacent Jacuzzi.

Celine Dion

We know Celine Dion for living an extravagant lifestyle. She deserves it anyway, as she has accomplished so much in the industry. For example, the holidays would not be complete without one of the pop diva’s Christmas songs. Due to her popularity, she was also given credit for having the highest-grossing residency concert in Las Vegas from 2008 to 2009. She is also the second-best-selling female artist in the US, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

With all the accolades and the accompanying pressure, it is only suitable for her to chill every now and then. At least until before she sold her vacation mansion in Florida, the star spent her holidays there. The house and its enormous backyard boasted of a magnificent view of the ocean, a resort-style swimming pool, private cabanas when entertaining guests, and an elaborate waterside and play area for kids. In the end, the undisclosed buyer got a bargain on the estate and got it for $28 million. It’s certainly a steal if you ask us.

Oprah Winfrey


Oprah is arguably one of the most influential and richest women in the world. She is being touted as a cultural icon and even an inspiration for many young African-American women. It is not a total surprise how she evolved from someone who had to obtain personal loans every now and then to the Queen of All Media who can buy out any company at will. Oprah’s popularity even transcends royal boundaries as the former royals Harry and Meghan Markle gave her an interview recently on various sensitive topics, trusting that she could deliver.

There were rumors that the backyard seen in those interviews was those of Oprah or one of the royal’s houses, but that was not the case. It was that of a friend, according to Oprah. What does the media magnate keep in her backyard, though? Well, her Montecito home features a rose garden. She did not know anything about gardening, so she asked for professional help on how to do things. Oprah, as expected, did the dirty work herself—indeed something admirable about the celebrity.

David Beckham

As captain for six years of the national football men’s team of England, David Beckham led his players into 58 caps during his stint. He also made 115 career appearances, including at three FIFA World Cup tournaments and two UEFA European Championship tournaments. The professional football player is known for his crossing ability, bending free-kicks, and range of passing. When Beckham retired in 2013, he logged 20 years and won 19 major trophies.

If we were to think of two more blessings that we could also consider as his wins are his beautiful wife, Victoria Beckham, and their beautiful home in Cotswolds. Apart from an expressive home insurance premium, the house also boasts of a garden in the backyard.  Beckham admits that when working in the garden, he would usually reminisce about the 1990s, at the height of his football career. The family house has exposed brick walls, log-burning fires, a pool, a tennis court, and a sauna—all fit for two stars and their four children.

Christie Brinkley

Spending 25 years as the face of CoverGirl, Christie Brinkley has first gained worldwide fame for her appearances in the 1970s issues of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issues. Not only that, but the model has also appeared on over 500 magazine covers. Her lawyers were also pretty busy reviewing her contracts with major brands, both fashion and non-fashion. Surprisingly, the hardworking beauty did not stop at becoming a model and went on to try out acting and writing, among others.

Recently, the model-actress showcased her hampton home on Instagram.  It showcases four bedrooms, five bathrooms, and a country-style kitchen. What is interesting about the house is what you could find in the backyard. It has a rowing machine which she put near the swimming pool and a garden that is full of lush greeneries and flowering plants.  Due to the presence of many birds on the property, she also installed birdhouses to make them feel welcome.

Serena Williams

With a record of 13 Grandslams on the hard-court, Serena Williams has the credit of being among the greatest female players in the world. She currently ranks number 7 worldwide, but the highest she has been was number 1 in 2002. The tennis player has also gained almost $29 million in endorsements and prize money, earning her a spot as the only woman on Forbes’s list of the highest-paid athletes in 2016 and 2017.

While we would normally see Williams on the tennis court, ther

e is yet another favorite place she frequents, and that is her backyard. She has a fantastic pool, and recently, she posted an Instagram photo of her posing while sitting in her patio egg chair and wearing not a swimsuit but a red pair of boots. The backyard has a massive pool, luscious green grass, and various other shades of greens. Williams revealed that she had enlisted her sister Venus to help with the decoration.

Sofia Vergara

American’s Got Talent judge Sofia Vergara has been regarded as one of the highest-paid actresses on TV for seven successive years, from 2013 to 2020. This is not surprising at all, considering the actress has appeared in numerous films, including Chasing Papi, Meet the Browns, and Modern Family. She is good at acting and in voice acting, as evidenced by her performance in Happy Feet Two, The Emoji Movie, and Escape from Planet Earth.

When it comes to relaxing after a heavy schedule at work, Vergara does not have to go far. She recently shared images of her in a stunning bikini, and her backyard is equally beautiful. It showed a patio and a pool area, with large potted plants and classy patio chairs. The lawn is obviously manicured. We can be sure that Vergara and her husband, Joe Manganiello, spent a considerable amount of their savings and investments to design and construct this backyard.

Kate Upton

Although she showcased an impressive set of skills as an equestrian, Kate Upton garnered even more recognition as a model. She’s had the chance to work with brands such as Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, Esquire, and Victoria’s Secret. Along the way, Kate also dabbled in the movie scene, landing acting credits for projects like Tower Heist, The Layover, and The Other Woman.

Her journey to celebrity is surely anything but easy, so it comes as no surprise that Kate also takes time to have a break, and she does so in style! Through a photo she shared on her social media account, fans of the model-actress got a glimpse of her scenic backyard, where she spends some of her leisure time at. Along with the patio and trees surrounding the area, there is also a swimming pool in the middle in case Kate or her pet dog wants to go for a swim.

Kelly Ripa

Even at a young age, Kelly Ripa was already exceptionally talented. Beginning her ballet training at three years old, Kelly later developed other talents, such as playing the piano and singing. By the time she was in high school, Kelly had showcased a natural skill in acting, performing in a few of her school’s stage productions. Since then, she has gained widespread recognition for her performance in All My Children, Hope & Faith, and her hosting gig in Live with Kelly and Ryan.

Along the way, Kelly also spent a portion of her investment money on a lovely home, which she shares with her husband and kids. Through her Instagram account, the actress-talk-show-host shares occasional glimpses of her house. The most notable area she’s shown so far is undoubtedly the pool area, with its clear blue waters and blooming green surroundings. A perfect place to spend the afternoons in.

Reese Witherspoon

Debuting as a teenager in the 1991 film The Man in the Moon, Reese Witherspoon eventually made quite a name for herself in the entertainment industry. Since then, she’s starred in titles such as Walk the Line, Election, Fear, and Big Little Lies. She’s also made investments as a producer for some of her projects and dabbles in the fashion scene with her Draper James clothing company.

Like the previously-mentioned Kelly Ripa, Reese is also a fan of sharing glimpses of her home on social media. One such photo in question is of the actress relaxing in her backyard, enjoying some sweets and perhaps a cup of coffee. Along with her and her adorable dogs, we could see that the place is beyond scenic. With its swimming pool, which has an adjacent Jacuzzi, the area is also surrounded by trees, providing Reese both a lovely view and all-around privacy.

Catherine Zeta-Jones

Like many kids, Catherine Zeta-Jones was as energetic as a ball of electricity during her childhood. To allocate it to good use, her parents let her take ballet lessons. Besides dancing, Catherine eventually developed a talent for acting and singing, too, and gained attention for them. Today, she’s one of the many recognized figures in the film industry, having starred in The Mask of Zorro, Ocean’s Twelve, and The Terminal.

Along the way, thanks to the fortune she’s earned, the actress spent a portion of her wealth on her rose garden. Although the photo she shared was taken when the park was still new, the place was already beyond stunning, displaying varying colors of light red, blue, and violet. Well, it’s been a few years already since the picture was posted, so perhaps it’s safe to say that the area has since become the actress’ ever-vibrant haven.
