Billionaire Homes

Warren Buffett lives in the same 6,000 sq ft, 5 bedroom stuccuo house that he purchased in 1957 for $31,500.


Richard Branson's home is really an island. 10 bedrooms, 10 baths and lots of celebrity guests.


Paul Allen has a 10,000 sq ft on Lake Washington. It also includes an NBA regulation-sized gym. I wonder if his Trailblazers put on shows there for him.

Oprah Winfrey's 23,000 sq ft home has 6 bedrooms and 14 baths. The property includes a quarter mile long driveway (would suck to get the news paper), and a man-made lake with rare fish.

Michael Dell lives in a 33,000 sq ft on the hill tops of Austin Texas. It has 8 bedrooms, 8 baths, 13 half baths, restaurant quality kitchen, indoor and outdoor pool, and a 5-level terraced lawn. The property taxes run about a quarter of a million per year (so stop complaining). It is the most expensive house ever built in Texas and looks more like an office building than anything else.

Mark Cuban's 24,000 sq ft mansion in Dallas Texas. Though, I'm not sure where he's going to land his $41 Million private jet.


Larry Ellison's 8,000 sq ft, 7 bedrooms sits on a penisular between the San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean. He spent $65 million buying up 5 beach front properties to build it. It is Japanese inspired with samurai helmets and armor sculputres scattered throughout the house. Almost every room has a view of the koi pond.

Bill Gates's 66,000 sq ft compound includes a 60-ft swimming pool with an underwater music system. It has 2 "secret" bookcase doors and a 1,000 sq ft dining room. Speakers are hidden beneath the wallpaper and allows music to follow you as you walk through the house. Visitors are given a microchip upon entrance which sends signals throughout the house and a given room temperature would adjust for the user's preferences. Annual property tax is just over a million.
