John Hughes’ Estate Sells The House That “Sixteen Candles” Built

john hughes houseJohn Hughes is known for making the movies that shaped a lot of our young lives. The man behind “Sixteen Candles” and “The Breakfast Club” passed away a few years back and left behind a hefty estate built on the backs of these films. Now Hughes’ estate is selling his Chicago-area home.john hughes home listingListed for $4.825 million, the Lake Forest, Illinois home looks like it was plucked from one of his films. The 11,000 square foot estate features two acres of property, six bedrooms, six full bathrooms, four half bathrooms, six fire places, a pool, and is just steps away from the shores of Lake Michigan. It’s a really great home, and it’s affordable for what it is. However, it didn’t sell the first time it hit the market back in 2011, so we’re unsure what will happen to it this time. Hopefully, the rebounding real estate market is kind to the passed-on celebrity, because it’d be a shame to see this home go unused. john hughes homejohn hughes house picturesjohn hughes mansionjohn hughes mansion picshughes housejohn hughes mansion pictures

Floyd Mayweather’s Florida Penthouse

floyd mayweather real estateFresh off of his victory over fellow legend Manny Pacquiao, boxer Floyd Mayweather is riding high. However, he’s been riding high for years, and he’s been living high too; he keeps a penthouse in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida. The champ had the home listed recently for just under $2 million, but he pulled it off the market and looks to be keeping the condo.floyd mayweathers florida penthouseAt just over 3,000 square feet, the gorgeous sky-high home features four bedrooms and five bathrooms. He was going to sell it because he felt that his kids were outgrowing the space, but he must want to keep it just in case he needs a night by the beach. The building that the condo sits in has all the amenities, including a pool and a beach, so it’s a great spot to relax once in a while for “Money”. Besides, when you have the fortune that Floyd has, you can keep a two million dollar home and not think twice about never using it. inside floyd mayweathers homefloyd mayweathers kitchen in floridafloyf mayweathers florida homemoney mayweathers penthousefloyd mayweathers closet

Jay-Z & Beyonce Are Renters

jayz beyonce rental houseIt’s not often that Jay Z and Beyonce want for anything, they’re worth about a zillion bucks each, but even when they can’t have exactly what they desire they end up with more than the rest of us. The power couple has recently been having trouble finding a permanent residence in California, living out of a posh Beverly Hills hotel during their house hunt, so they’ve now decided to”settle” for renting a $150k per month mansion in Holmby Hills for the next year. They’re spent time in the place before, renting it in 2014 for $200k per month, but now they’re looking to really get some mileage out of the place with a year lease while they search for their dream home . $1.8 million for a year’s rent is pretty crazy, but for a home in one of Los Angeles’ classiest neighborhoods that features 16,000 square feet of living space, 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, and a waterfall in the pool; that’s apparently a bargain. Congrats guys!jayz beyone holmby jayz beyonce holmby homejayz holmby hillsbeyonce holmby hillsjayz beyonce california rental

Madonna’s Tel Aviv Penthouse

madonna tel avivAs one of the biggest stars in the history of pop music, Madonna has made more money since I started typing this article than most of us will make this year. As a result, it comes as no surprise whenever she goes out and spends a ton of that cash on any one item; take her new penthouse for example…her $20 million penthouse. The near sixty year old icon recently completed the two year process of applying for, and then purchasing the top two floors of a Richard Meier-designed skyscraper in Tel Aviv, Israel and couldn’t be happier about it. The new property’s details are still be kept under wraps, but word is that the whole place has been redone and customized to the Material Girl’s tastes, and that a state-of-the-art gym is going to be put in ASAP. It’s been well publicized in the past that Madonna practices Kabbalah (a form of Jewish Mysticism), and the star has spent significant time in the city before, but it’s unknown at this point how much time she plans on spending in her new pad.madonna tel aviv penthousemadonnas housemadonnas penthouse in tel avivmadonnas penthouse picturesmadonnas home in israelmadonnas penthouse israel
