Considering the amount of time we’ve had to spend indoors these days, we’ll take what we can get when it comes to soaking up the sunshine – even if only in the comfort of our private outdoor space. So whether you’re sitting on your condo balcony or going for a jog around your spacious backyard, we hope you’re enjoying every moment. But why not live vicariously through the lives of the rich and famous while you’re at it? (It’s fun, right?). When it comes to celebrity homes, it’s their backyards – luxurious pools, spa-inspired patios and canopied gardens – that we’re coveting more than anything else right now. And while the following images may result in a fair bit of envy on your part, it’ll make you want to rejig your outdoor space ASAP.
John Legend and Chrissy Teigen
The Hollywood “it” couple recently added to their real estate portfolio with this four-bedroom, four-bathroom stunner that boasts nearly 3,500 square feet of living space – including a backyard that includes a gas fireplace, widescreen television and covered patio that overlooks a shimmering lap pool. Take the full tour of John Legend and Chrissy Teigen’s $5.1M West Hollywood home.
The Vancouver native recently picked up this modest abode (by movie star standards) that comes complete with an outdoor dining area featuring a criss-cross brick-and-grass patio with a high trellis and thick climbing vines for additional privacy. Take a peek inside the $1.9M Spanish revival cottage in West Hollywood.
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi
Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi continue to earn their reputation as one of Hollywood’s biggest home flippers. The couple recently purchased their second Montecito property – this time around a Tudor-style home which includes these glorious French doors that open onto an outdoor courtyard that offers a sense of the English countryside (albeit in California). Want more? Take a tour of the Queen of Daytime TV’s newest Montecito mansion.
Cardi B and Offset
The couple definitely splurged on this jaw-dropping 22,000-square-foot mega-mansion. But its’the perfectly manicured landscaping in the expansive backyard that has us green with envy. From the uniquely-shaped infinity pool to the European-style hedges, what’s not to love? See more of Cardi B’s $5.8M Atlanta mansion with an 1,800-bottle wine cellar and gun range.
Television’s most famous therapist personality resides in this modest mansion that features a backyard swimming pool, elevated hot tub and standalone cabana. It almost makes us wish we could be invited over for a private session. Trust us – the rest of Dr. Phil’s Beverly Hills mansion is absolutely bonkers! You can also check out these lavish celebrity swimming pools we want to dive into.
From the brick walls to the wood-burning fireplace, this outdoor dining area with a lakefront view is giving us serious backyard envy. If it were us, we’d spend all our time in this space. Yup, we officially can’t get enough of Kelly Clarkson’s Nashville mansion.
Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy
In the midst of the college admissions scandal, the Hollywood pair are renting out their expansive five-bedroom, six-bath home. We especially love the gorgeous backyard with a luxurious deck and views overlooking the city of Los Angeles. Psst – did you know you can rent Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy’s Hollywood home for $16.5K per month?
Speaking of the college admissions scandal, Lori Loughlin and fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannuli also listed their Los Angeles mansion this year. It was put on the market for a whopping $28.7 million – and we can see why. Their outdoor space backs right onto a golf course. Take a peek inside Lori Loughlin’s entire Bel-Air property.
Known to the locals as Petra Manor, this 1.75-acre stunner was rumoured to be on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s to-buy list. But prior to that, the property was rented by one of the most visible members of the Kardashian family. The backyard amenities include a posh pool, private tennis court and an unrivalled view of the surrounding mountains. Yes, please! See more of Kylie Jenner’s former Malibu rental.
The Office scribe knows a thing or two about Hollywood legends. Her new home has seen plenty of A-list action over the years thanks to the fact that it was once owned by Old Blue Eyes himself. But how about those views from the awning-shaded patio? Not everyone can enjoy the perks of overlooking the ocean and a nearby beach. Peek inside Frank Sinatra’s former Malibu home.
This hilltop stunner with floor-to-ceiling glass windows includes the rooftop patio of our dreams. We still can’t believe Pharrell listed this $17M glass house in Beverly Hills. We’d never want to leave!
The Canadian YouTube sensation recently purchased a stylish new Los Angeles home that offers up crystal-clear panoramic views of the surrounding city and mountains. Don’t mind us, we’re just over here waiting for our personal invitation once the world goes back to normal.
Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark
Somewhere over the rainbow is a stunning, zen-like garden where we can while away the hours surrounded by a canopy of trees, rock paths and comfy patio furniture. We can all agree there’s no place like Judy Garland’s former Hollywood Hills home.
With plans to relocate to California for the year-round sunshine and extra rounds of golf, everyone’s favourite “goodfella” is ready to move on from his home of nearly 30 years. But with views like this, we can’t believe Joe Pesci listed his Jersey Shore waterfront mansion. Take in more breathtaking celebrity views.
