No celebrity real estate gallery is complete without arguably the most famous piece of celebrity real estate in the nation: The Playboy Mansion.

The Beverly Hills home has a wine cellar, game room, private zoo, tennis courts, waterfall and swimming pool area (including the famous grotto).

  1. I absolutely love that Beverly Hills mega-mansion of Paris Hilton! I really like its swimming pool, spa, wine closet and gym. It seems that she hired a professional real estate agent named Michael Libow in order to find this impressive and charming house. I would want to have a large home like that!
