Warren Buffett’s $11m Emerald Bay beach house
A legendary figure in the world of stock, Warren Buffett has also invested wisely in property over the years.
He purchased this California beach house for just $150,000 back in 1971. Now 46 years on, Buffet is looking to sell it on for almost 75 times that amount.
The Laguna Beach area wasn’t the affluent, developed neighbourhood that it is today when Buffett purchased the property. However, it is now home to some of the world’s richest and most successful people.
While Buffett is known for keeping his living quarters modest, his beach house still offers lavish residence. With six bedrooms and seven bathrooms, five of which are en-suite, this spacious apartment offers the perfect place for a family to spend the summer months.

Located on the river front with exposure from the North, South and West, you will get plenty of sunshine both in and outside of your new home.

Aside from the many beds and bathrooms inside the property, you will also gain access to a swimming pool, hot tub, gym, sauna, play room and party room. Likewise, there will also be a 24 hour concierge service on hand to take your luxury lifestyle to the next level.
Jim Belushi’s $38.5 San Francisco villa
Covered in Venetian plaster and surrounded by a sprawling forest of greenery, you would expect to find this property on a sun-soaked Mediterranean island. It appears to be a world away from the high-tech city of San Francisco.
Yet, this property is located on the shore of the San Francisco Bay. If you wanted to pretend otherwise, there’s little stopping you. Expert designer Michael Smith and architect Oscar Shamamian expertly designed the property to allow its residents to do just that. The duo have provided a Mediterranean experience that is indistinguishable from the real thing. Likewise, sitting on 1.3 acres of land behind walls and gates, this property is shielded from the world outside.
Currently owned by the multi-talented Jim Belushi – part-time comedian, actor and musician – this villa provides peak luxury. Each room has been designed to fit the theme, complete with tiles and floors from Italy, Venezuela and Morocco.
However, Smith and Shamamian didn’t neglect function and comfort in the name of design and aesthetics. This villa provides its residents with everything that they need. It also comes with some luxury extras that are somewhat less necessary, such as a swimming pool, sauna and screening room.
Ellen DeGeneres’ $45m Santa Barbara County villa
Designed and built by famed architect Wallace Frost as his permanent US residence, this 1930s villa was created with an impeccable level of detail. Thought has gone into every piece of the structure, from the wood beams supporting the ceiling to the tiles lining the roof above, to give this property the look and feel of an authenic 17th century Italian home.
However, its current owner is the star of the show. Popular television host Ellen DeGeneres has listed the stunning property. Having purchased the home in 2013 for $26.5m, DeGeneres has since bought the two adjacent properties. As a result, this luxury home is now surrounded by 17 acres of green land.
While plenty of it to explore, DeGeneres has previously stated that the outside is just as wonderful as the inside.
