Bill Gates’s Xanadu 2.0

Bill Gates may have lost his title as the world’s second-richest man, but only because of his generous philanthropic endeavors. He’s donated more than $35 billion to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and has a net worth of $107 billion. When he’s not donating his fortune to charitable organizations, he’s spending time at his home—which cost him $127 million.

Gates purchased the waterfront lot in 1988 for $2 million and spent $68 million building his home. As he’s renovated, he’s more than doubled the value. It’s 66,000 square feet and includes six kitchens, seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a 60-foot pool, a 2,300-square-foot reception hall, an impressive library, a state-of-the-art fitness facility, and so much more.

Contrary to popular belief, Skywalker Ranch is an actual working ranch. There are animals, gardens, and vineyards on the property that are constantly being tended to. The natural beauty allows guests to unwind from the stress and worries of everyday life.

Skywalker Ranch is only accessible by invitation-only. So although it’s unlikely we’ll ever get to witness the gorgeous 50,000-square-foot mansion with our own eyes, we can stare at pictures of the heavenly research library and the dreamy stained-glass ceiling.

The glimpses that have been revealed of Kim and Kanye’s house expose their intentionally sparse living areas. It’s hard to believe the home is even livable, especially with children. The light-filled rooms are decorated only with plants and sculptures, making their home feel rather impersonal.

Kim K, who’s one of the most followed celebrities on Instagram, shows off her home (and herself) on the social media platform. The bathroom design is sleek and open, just like the rest of her home. The marble bathtub looks rather uncomfortable and the double vanity is missing sink basins. Every aspect of the home is as minimalistic as possible.

Stern’s Palm Beach mansion is expansive and offers picturesque views of the ocean. He and his wife, Beth Stern, are constantly back and forth between their NYC apartment and South Florida beach bungalow. Stern, who isn’t overly fond of New York, enjoys his time in Palm Beach.

Beth Stern, a model and activist, has dedicated her life to fostering animals—specifically cats. And the best part about their beach house is its ability to house so many furry friends. She fosters roughly 200 cats a year. They also get to enjoy the perks of a $60 million Florida home. She has a couple rooms dedicated solely to fostering and will have anywhere from 15 to 25 cats at once.

If I had to guess Tiger Woods’ favorite part of his estate, I’d say it was the 3.5-acre golf course. He can spend his days practicing without even having to leave the comfort of his home. The four-hole practice area’s views of the Atlantic Ocean are stunning.
