By: Xtreme eDeals
1. Michael Jordan
Michael Jordan’s property is so lavish that no one seems to want to buy it from him.
From the bowling-green-like lawn to the tennis court, basketball court, and many other standout features, it’s like any five-start resort you’d spend thousands of dollars a night to stay in.
Michael listed the house for sale for $29 million, dropped it to $21 million, then even asked for $13 million. The property taxes worth $100,000 a year might be putting people off because it’s sure not the stunning property itself!
2. Tyler Seguin

Ice hockey player Tyler Seguin can’t be doing too bad for himself when you see just how spectacular his home in Dallas, Texas is. The 1999 7,250 square-foot home was put up for sale for $2.1 million, and it looks like it’s worth every penny.
It has five bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, and a gorgeous, private outdoor entertainment area with a fire pit, pool, and well-established grounds. This property is drenched in character, but it has also been tastefully renovated where it matters the most, such as the kitchen and bathrooms.
3. Steph Curry
Steph Curry and his wife Ayesha live in a gorgeous mansion in Alamo, California. Once you see photos of it, you’d probably assume it’s a hotel you can book for a night. It’s just that stunning.
It certainly has plenty of standout features, like polished wood floors, a solid wood kitchen, an abundance of bedrooms and bathrooms, and a large swimming pool with an outdoor entertainment area.

Take a guess at how much LeBron James’ home is worth? Well, let’s just say he paid a cool $23 million for it! Once you see it, it’s pretty apparent why it costs that much. It has eight bedrooms, a wine cellar, gym, rooftop terrace, swimming pools, and strangely, a cigar room.
It’s also surrounded by trees, which makes it an incredibly private home.

Tennis players can make a killing, and Roger Federer is proof of that. I mean, just look at his gorgeous home in Wollerau, Switzerland.
It’s located on a lake with a glass frontage allowing for uninterrupted views. It’s also much larger than most surrounding houses, which makes it look more like a resort rather than a home for one owner.
6. Tom Brady
Tom Brady is living all of our property dreams. He and his wife Gisele own a mansion that looks more like a castle than anything else. It’s bordered by plenty of trees and nature, a lush green lawn, and a swimming pool encompassing a corner of the house.
The home also has five bedrooms with walk-in closets, a private gym, and a squillion other features and rooms we could only dream of.
7. Conor McGregor

Conor McGregor’s home in Las Vegas, Nevada, called ‘Mac Mansion’ is every bit as impressive as you’d expect from a man with a net worth of about $200 million. It looks like a private resort with over 11,000 square feet of space, six bedrooms, a whopping 10 bathrooms, and a backyard with a pool and barbeque area.
Its location between other high-class homes definitely offers the illusion that this is a hotel for many families rather than a home for one.
8. Floyd Mayweather

And it’s not. He bought a six-bedroom, 10-bathroom property in Beverly Hills in 2017, and it has everything we could ever dream of. He’ll never get bored with a candy shop, 225-bottle wine rack, and a 12-seater cinema.
9. Serena Williams
Serena Williams has a net worth of about $200 million, and when you’ve got cash to burn, why shouldn’t you have a hotel-like home? Serena’s home in Palm Beach, Florida, is the epitome of luxury.
It spans 4,000 square feet with five bathrooms, five bedrooms, and a massive pool to enjoy whenever she wants. This is just one of the homes Serena owns. She also has another worth almost $7 million in Beverly Hills.
