From Mansions to Modest Abodes – Celebrity Residences
The homes of from mansions to modest abodes – celebrity residences on everything from home improvement shows to the hit reality series Cribs, but not all of them are mansions. In fact, some A-list stars have passed up mind-blowing celebrity houses to find simpler abodes, and their new homes are just as charming — just more affordable.
Take Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz, for example. The rocker moved out of his Studio City, Calif., home in 2014 for a more modest pad that’s surrounded by lush trees and features a wall of Wisteria-covered doors that open to a large veranda. Wentz’s 4,000-square-foot retreat sounds pretty fancy by Los Angeles standards, but compared to what other celebrities spend on their houses (it would take an average American more than three million years to buy Jeff Bezos’ house, for instance), it’s practically a bargain.
