Did you know that celebrities have owned and lived in many of our Unique Homes? Here are 3 homes formerly owned by famous individuals.
810 Fifth Avenue, New York, New York, was formerly called home by two celebrities. The first celebrity to call this New York property home was former Vice President Nelson Rockefeller. Additionally, William Randolph Hearst, businessman, newspaper publisher, and politician, also lived in this residence.
In 1926, the architect J.E.R. Carpenter built this property to encompass beautiful aspects of the Renaissance Palazzo style. The home spreads throughout the entire 8th floor of the building with 13 rooms, including four beds, four baths, and one-half bath. Oversized windows give way to views of Central Park, and the Manhattan skyline as this residence sits on the corner of 5th Avenue and 62nd Street. Future residents can be guaranteed celebrity-like privacy and security.
5396 North Bay Road in Miami Beach, Florida, was once owned by Scott Stapp, the lead singer of Creed. The band was formed in Orlando, Florida, in 1994 and made several hits before splitting in 2004.
This modern-style home inspired by an Italian villa has five beds, five baths, and one-half bath. Step outside to 75 feet of water accompanied by a dock and seawall. Additionally, the With Arms Wide Open vocalist enjoyed views of Downtown Miami. Indoor and outdoor entertaining in this house is without question.
1229 North Wetherly Drive in Los Angeles, California, is an exquisite property with every amenity a resident could need. The home encompasses five spacious bedrooms and two custom-built walk-in closets. The kitchen has chef-grade stainless steel appliances, custom cabinets, and a breakfast bar. Entertainment comes easy when the expansive dining room is ready to fit up to 10 guests. Additionally, outside is a private sanctuary backyard perfect for entertaining. This property succeeds in fulfilling a celebrity lifestyle.
While there is confirmation that this property was once called home to a celebrity, we do not know who this former owner is. Located in the epicenter of the entertainment industry, can you guess who this Hollywood Star might have been?
