Kris and Kylie revealed the new digs in a YouTube video, where Kylie said the mini mansion reminds her of the playhouse she had growing up.
Nicole Kidman’s apartment in New York City has an elevator for her car.

After spending $2.5 million renovating his Miami home, DJ Khaled filled his mansion with some over-the-top amenities, like 14k gold chandeliers, a boat lift, a granite staircase, and a private movie theatre. Most notably, however, the home also includes a huge sneaker closet that can house 500 pairs of shoes.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have multiple homes, but their mansion in Hidden Hills, California, is their prime residence. The 15,667-square-foot mansion cost $20 million and is known for its minimalist, white decor.
In April 2019, however, the home went viral after Kardashian showed off her bathroom sinks in Vogue’s “73 Questions” video. The internet was completely baffled as to how the flat sinks worked – but she later explained they had a slight slope that guided the water into a slot, which served as a drain. It’s estimated that the sinks could cost over $20,000.
Oprah’s ski chalet in Colorado has a wine room that resembles a mining cave.
In 2016, Oprah bought a $14 million, 8,700-square-foot ski chalet in Telluride, Colorado, and it’s filled with some wild features. The house includes a $70,000 limestone bathtub, a private spa, and a hot tub. Most notably, the house also has a wine cave, which is 56 feet long and holds 1,600 bottles of wine. There’s an old mining cart down there that runs on rails. It cost $240,000 to install the cave in the media mogul’s house.
However, Oprah’s main residence is in Montecito, California, and it has its own teahouse.

Lady Gaga’s Malibu house has a bowling alley in the basement.
When Bradley Cooper convinced Lady Gaga to star alongside him in “A Star is Born,” he did so at her Malibu mansion. The $22.5 million home was also the backdrop for the musician’s Netflix documentary, “Five Foot Two.” The home has dozens of amenities, including a private terrace and a large eat-in kitchen. But the real surprise is the two-lane bowling alley in the basement, which you can only access through a secret door in the living room, according to Realtor.com.

But the house’s wildest feature was actually in the backyard – a water park, which included two pools, two water slides, water cannons, and a lazy river.
The house sold for $38.5 million in 2017 after being on the market for four years.

The Plaza Hotel is arguably the most famous hotel in the country, and many celebrities have called it home at one time or another. When Tommy Hilfiger lived in the penthouse, it was expertly decorated and included Plaza-inspired decor and furniture. The hotel is also known as the setting for the children’s series “Eloise at the Plaza,” so it’s fitting that Hilfiger made an entire room dedicated to the character. It’s called the Eloise Dome because it sits in a domed-shaped room. He even had the series’ original illustrator draw on the room’s walls.
In 2019, the penthouse sold for $31.25 million.
