Having a lavish home is not the easiest to maintain, but some people undoubtedly think it’s worth it. And by some people, we mean the rich and richer. How many features have we seen, whether on print or on TV, of celebrity homes that scream of wealth and prestige? The larger the estate, the more successful the celebrity is. For anyone really, owning a home is a status symbol, proof of how far you’ve come in this world.
It’s usually the celebrities who own the extravagant homes, but other moneyed individuals have their slice in the pie, as well. Successful businessmen, CEOs, magnates, and scions are also proud owners of beautiful homes, though these homes may not be as high profile as the homes of those in the entertainment business. But they’re no less opulent. The homes listed below, though, are not in the limelight for the structure of the house, but rather for their million dollar backyards that will make us ordinary folk green with envy.

Another famous celeb with a home in Jupiter Island is Canadian-born singer Celine Dion. But hers is no ordinary home. She has in her backyard her very own water park, which her children and her nieces and nephews frequently indulge in. The water park boasts of two large slides, two pools, and a river with bridges built across it. As if the water park wasn’t lavish enough, the property also has a sports court and tree house.
