Mick Jagger’s House: Just $56,000 per Month to Feel Like a Rockstar:Mick Jagger’s house, which contains six bedrooms and five bathrooms, looks out directly onto the beach. With distinctly Japanese-inspired styling, and an above ground walkway connecting the multiple pavilions, the house has an open, Zen feeling that must serve as a balm to Mr. Jagger’s more raucous rocker lifestyle. The house also sports a pool, hot tub, open air dining pavilion, and easy access to the beach. He is currently renting his home for 9500 GBP per week, the equivalent to $14,000 per week, or $56,000 per month, and requires that anyone interested in the villa go through an extensive background check. Apparently, while staying at Mick Jagger’s house might be restful, actually getting your foot in the door will not be. Rock bands come and go, and many times, they achieve a certain level of success and then flare out. Either the band members have outside issues that mess with the group’s success, or the musicians realize that they simply don’t like each other that much. Occasionally, however, a group achieves that lightning in a bottle thing that makes for rock superstardom. The Rolling Stones are a prime example of this. Though the group has had its share of ups and downs, including drug issues and internal feuds, it has, for the most part, remained intact. Frontman and founding member, Mick Jagger, has parlayed his work with the group into a solid solo career, and has also invested some of his earnings from multiple successful albums, into a number of pieces of prime real estate. Many of his properties have become famous in their own right, and he has recently begun to rent some of them out. Mick Jagger’s house on the island of Mustique in the Caribbean, is one of those properties that just about every celebrity has coveted at some point. In fact, Sir Paul McCartney held his most recent wedding there.
Oprah Winfrey’s House: The Former Queen of Entertainment Settles for a Less Than Royal Sale Price:The 4,600 square foot, 13-room apartment was purchased by Ms. Winfrey in 2006 for just over $5.5 million dollars. Fast forward to 2012, and Oprah Winfrey’s house was recently put back on the market (after a previous failed attempt in 2008) for a mere $2.8 million. The abode on East Lake Shore Drive has multiple foyers, a solarium, a butler’s pantry, a room entirely devoted to wine storage, a breakfast nook, an office, a terrace, high ceilings, stunning views of the water, and three bedrooms. It is one of three properties Ms. Winfrey owns currently, and the least used of the three, hence her decision to offload it. Though she is not as powerful as she once was, it would still be kind of cool to boast that you now own Oprah Winfrey’s house. here was a time when you were definitely the queen of, well, just about everything. You could make a movie a hit, a book a bestseller, and a minor celebrity into a major one, just by turning your attention their way. Your retirement party brought out every entertainment giant of the last two decades. You made headlines when you launched your own magazine, and then your own network, and for all intents and purposes you looked to be made of gold. However, the magazine has only done so-so, and the network is struggling. While your talk show is missed, two or three other “gabfests” have happily sucked up your large afternoon audience, and are now doing better than ever. While you are still a prolific and successful producer, Oprah, sadly, your star has seemed to dim somewhat. Which may be the reason you are having so much trouble selling your apartment. If anyone out there is looking for a place, Oprah Winfrey’s house is now on sale for half of its original price.
