    Celebrity Homes From Different Decades

    Would you rather have a newly-built home or a piece of local history? Well, it turns out that maybe celebrities really are just like us! Instead of living in brand spanking new mansions, they actually live in homes from every decade, ranging all the way back to 1908! Make no mistake though – even though celebrity homes may be older, they are always fancy, massive and majorly high-priced!

    Let’s see who lives in homes from the various decades!

    Madonna – The 1900′s

    Built in 1908, the Material Girl’s 2-story New York duplex has 6 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms and pine floors – a very common amenity in homes built during that time.

    Katy Perry – The 1920′s 

    Located in the heart of Los Angeles, Katy Perry’s home was built in 1921 and features 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, 8,835 square feet, a pool. The estate is a glamourous Spanish-style home, which was a very common style built back in that era.

    Jason Bateman – The 1930′s

    In-demand actor Jason Bateman bought the iconic estate of the late, great Ernest Borgnine, which was built in 1938. Located in Beverly Hills, the 5 bedrooms, 7 bathroom, 6,148 square foot home has a pool, views and a slate roof, which was popular with homes built in the 30′s.

    Lauren Conrad – The 1950′s

    Budding real estate mogul and former “The Hills” star, Lauren Conrad, went back to the 50′s when she bought a house in Brentwood for $3,754,000. Built in 1959, the home has the period appropriate feature – a double-wide driveway, which is perfect for her and her entourage’s many cars. Inside, the home has 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 4,303 square feet and a glittery pool.

    David Hasselhoff – The 1980′s

    It seems almost too fitting that David Hasselhoff has a home built in 1988. The actor has a bit of a throwback vibe, due to his popularity in previous decades when he played lifeguard Mitch Buchannon on Baywatch. In his real life, Hasselhoff owned an 80′s home in Encino that has 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 8,947 square feet, a pool, 2 guesthouses and a very 80′s feature – large bathroom mirrors.

    Kevin James – The 2000′s

    ‘King of Queens’ star Kevin James sure was living like a king in his Encino mansion, which was built brand new in 2003. The palatial pad has 5 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, 11,291 square feet, a resort-style pool, and two very common amenities for homes built between 2000-2009: an aerobics room and a snail shower.

    Daisy Fuentes – 2010-present

    Daisy’s got herself a brand new home! Built brand new in 2012, Daisy Fuentes recently scooped up a beachfront Malibu home that has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 3,836 square feet and a coveted feature in brand new builds: natural light exposure!

      3 bedroom, 4 bathroom, 3,233 square foot condo

      Price

      $1,350,000

      Lauren Conrad of “The Hills” fame has bought and sold in Los Angeles. She previously listed her (in)famous Hollywood Hills home featured on the non-defunct MTV reality show of the same name for $2,250,000. Lauren purchased the home for a very star-like sum of $2,360,000 in early 2008. When it went up for sale, she was already looking at a $100k+ loss. After a price chop that brought the home down to a $2,100,000 list price, it is finally under contract for a still TBD sum.

      Now that THAT particular Hills home is about to become as passé as her friendship with Heidi Montag, Lauren has bought a new bachelorette pad. On March 29, 2012, Conrad plunked down $1,350,000 for a 3 bedroom, 4 bathroom, 3,233 square foot condo in another set of Los Angeles “Hills” – Beverly Hills to be exact.

      Conrad’s new home in the 90210 has a dramatic two-story living room, with the master and second bedroom on the main level. A “reverse floor plan,” upstairs has a large family room, an additional bedroom and deck that is yard-size. Her new home is described as a “one-of-a-kind penthouse” in a building with 24 hour security, a gorgeous shared pool, deck, entertainment room and gym.

      If Conrad’s stylish former home is any indicator, she likely has a decorator working around-the-clock to glam out her new pad!
