10 Best Celebrity Homes on the Market

NEW YORK ( MainStreet) -- Real estate is perhaps the only area where the decidedly less-than-famous can realistically live like celebrities.

It doesn't require talent, charisma or camera time. It just requires money, and usually a star trailer full of it at that. If you've got a face for radio and a dearth of god-given talent that makes long-forgotten Real World cast members look like Hollywood Walk-Of-Famers by comparison, throwing enough money at the right property could help boost your Q rating.

What makes Gianni Versace's Miami mansion worth nine figures? Start with the 54-foot mosaic pool lined in 24-karat gold.

We teamed up with the folks at Zillow (Z) and found 10 properties being sold by celebrities, including Oprah Winfrey, Billy Joel and Derek Jeter. Living in one of these homes won't make you a celebrity, but it'll help you live like one without having to chase the paparazzi away every few days or so:

Gianni Versace's Miami mansion
Location: Miami Beach, Fla.
Price: $125 million

What makes the late fashion designer's estate worth nine figures, besides the Versace label? How about Casa Casuarina's 18,838 square feet, 10 bedrooms, 11 baths and a 54-foot mosaic pool lined in 24-karat gold? Versace paid $10 million for it 20 years ago before making another $33 million in upgrades. It was last bought by telecom mogul Peter Loftin for $20 million in 2000 and converted into a boutique hotel back in 2009. Loftin's kept the place in exquisite condition, but some buyers may still have misgivings about buying the place where Versace himself was killed on the front steps 15 years ago.


Michael C. Hall's Hollywood Hills home
Location: Los Angeles
Price: $2 million

The star of Showtime's Dexter would have had plenty of space for plastic-cloaked kill rooms and a "dark passenger" in this 3,535-square-foot home. Designed by famed Los Angeles architect Hal Levitt -- who designed homes for Olivia Newton-John, Dean Martin, Debbie Reynolds and Lionel Ritchie -- Hall's home has four bedrooms, five baths, a downstairs gym with guest room with its own bath, extensive patio space and canyon views. Hall has owned the home since 2008, but it's been a bit emptier since his divorce from Dexter co-star Jennifer Carpenter.
