by : Joel Teo

If antiquity gods lived in the heavenly Olympus above the clouds, nowadays' stars have cribs that top anything else in the world. Choose any celebrity home and you'll hardly find any comparable house that doesn't belong to a star. So, what's so great about a celebrity home, apart from being famous? A celebrity home has style, Oscars by the fireplace and gorgeous gardens. In case you're wondering if there is any celebrity home top, read below to see how stars live.

Hollywood is the most popular place for any celebrity home, for the simple reason that it is the heart of show-biz. Ahead of the list in the celebrity home top comes Barbara Streisand .This celebrity home is a huge mansion completely covered(inside and outside) with "aged" wood, stained glass windows and an outside garden with brick walkways and streams. The second place in the celebrity home top is the Christina Onassis house, including a 5 Bedroom, 6 bathroom estate with two separate wings, a huge pool and a squash tennis court. The third position in the celebrity home top is held by Madonna and her villa with a personal spa salon, artificial pond, golf terrain and a top interior design touch, including leather sofas and mirrored walls.

At 4 we find Britney Spears, the proud owner of a tree-branch mansion with a resort-style pool and an amazing waterfall in the back yard. The 5th and 6th positions in the celebrity home top are occupied by George Clooney and Paris Hilton. The "Casa de Clooney" mansion is a 8 bedroom Tudor house with a large garden and golf terrain and with a design that makes Africa safari seem poor, being the celebrity home type in which you are likely to get lost. As to Hilton's celebrity home, we're talking a large real estate with a Baccarat crystal chandelier in the lounge, several pets' rooms and an artificial garden lake to go with the exotic palms.

Celebrity home number 7 is Mel Gibson's and is the paradise-like villa we all dream about. Tennis field, heated pool, garden astronomy observer or large screens covering the inside walls are all there, because this villa is a celebrity home where living like a star is a must. The 8th and the 9th places are held by Colin Farrell and Denise Richards. If Farrell's celebrity home is the typical bachelor villa, with a wine cellar, limestone kitchen tops, beamed ceilings and outdoor billiards salon, Richards has redecorated her private celebrity home using a Japanese theme, with bonsais around the garden pond and a red and black color palette to match the mahogany furniture around the mansion.

The final position is Marilyn Monroe's ex- estate home, an elegant villa with a collection of actors' paintings, a '50s decoration theme and a pool showing Marilyn's famous movies. Eventually, any celebrity home is special because it dares be original and it has that glittering touch that other homes lack.
