Many people see celebrities as stars, shining brightly with their talent, good looks, and charisma. Fans look up to them because of their skills. Some may even resonate with certain aspects of their life story. It’s perfectly normal to be curious about their everyday lives: especially about their celebrity homes.
As personal and enjoyable as it is to peek into the lives of our idols, it can also be quite beneficial for us. Looking into the design choices and aesthetics of our models can also spark our creative energies.
Whether you’re designing a room or conceptualizing how a soon-to-be forever home would look on lots for sale, these celebrity homes can serve as precious examples. With how beautifully designed most of these homes are, inspiration is indeed all around us.
Ready? Let’s peek into some of the best celebrity homes in the Philippines!
1. John Lloyd Cruz’ Ornate French Mediterranean Mansion in Antipolo
This famous actor’s sprawling 1,100 sqm property located in Antipolo is the embodiment of luxurious comfort. It features a clean and modern color palette, predominantly off-white or cream color accentuated by brown, light blue, and even gray tints.
With a French-Mediterranean theme, the house features all the trappings of luxury: a grand facade right at the entrance, a spacious, high-ceilinged interior with glossy wooden flooring, and even a zen garden and pond combo in the backyard. Of course, let’s not forget the huge swimming pool that the family and guests can jump in to escape the scorching tropical heat.
The actor himself said that he designed the house’s looks and style specifically to comfort him and his loved ones.
2. Kris Aquino’s Airy Pink-Themed Home in Quezon City
Leaving her legacy as one of the best actresses in Filipino cinema, Kris Aquino now turns her efforts into being a great homemaker and provider for her children. And she seems to be doing well if the design of her house says anything about it.
Created with a minimal color palette, the house also has bright splashes of color here and there. If the rest of Kris’ house is as clean yet cheerful as that living room picture above, the interior design–designed by Rossy Yabut Rojales–is definitely envied.
Speaking of interiors–the house features walk-in closets for every member of the family. It’s not a secret that the family has plenty of clothes and accessories, with their very active and public lifestyle.
One of the house’s main features is the outdoor area with a massive pool that the family and guests can certainly play around with and an attached lounge. This lounge has luxurious bathrooms and gaming machines for the kids. Truly a comfortable luxury home befitting the entire family.
3. Aljur Abrenica’s Modern Industrial-Inspired Townhouse in Quezon City
Reflecting his preferred industrial yet still elegant style, Aljur Abrenica’s townhouse in Quezon City is a beautifully designed luxury home that certainly matches the owner.
The house makes use of industrial elements such as hard edges, metal details, and woodworking. It also uses a lot of brickwork throughout, which beautifully complements the stark nature of the industrial themes. Featuring predominantly earth-themed colors, the house is filled with browns and reds that complement each other well.
The townhouse features a dining area with a bar cabinet, a full-range kitchen, and a versatile second-floor sanctuary that can be used as a second living room, hangout spot, or gym.
Another industrial-themed luxury home, Slater Young’s Cebu mansion, stands out as one of the most “open” on our list. And by open, we mean wrap-around, floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall windows on multiple sides of their home. What a way to style a luxury home!
Ultra-modern all throughout, it boasts good use of single-slant roofs and harsh angles and industrial elements such as minimalist dark colors and exposed woodworkings. With an emphasis on the outdoors, the house features many windows and a very generous floor area, with more than enough storage space.
The couple’s forever home, which they christened as the “Skypod,” is admittedly one of Slater’s most “architecturally challenging” projects. Due to this, the couple encountered a 2-month delay from their projected 7-month build-time goal.
Nevertheless, it seems like the PBB winner and Cebu-based model and civil engineer completed the project with flying colors.
5. Iza Calzado’s Luxuriously Eclectic Condo in Makati
Reflecting the actress’s own sophistication mixed with a sense of playfulness, her luxury condominium unit features eclectic design elements that tie together with a sense of feminine luxury.
With close to neutral color tones everywhere, Iza’s luxury condominium brims with life. It features her careful and loving choices for the furniture and decorations which fill the home.
Aside from the standard rooms, the luxury condominium also features a spacious and welcoming foyer, its own entertainment lounge, a powder room, an impressive glass-and-metal themed staircase, and a full walk-in closet.
After a lengthy 2-years of making the house, the celebrity family is finally ready to move into their new modern mansion.
The mansion features 4 floors packed with various luxury home amenities. There’s a super-wide living room and lounge area, plus a spacious garage and a host of rooms.
It also has an infinity pool that overlooks the panoramic view below, a barbecue pit, a classroom for the children, an extra-large bed fit for the entire family, and an especially large walk-in closet bigger than their own masters bedroom.
Perhaps more extravagant than any other celebrity home so far, the Kramer’s crib has its own indoor cinema, complete with an astounding 180-inch screen and ultra-comfortable Lay-Z-Boy chairs.
The family didn’t hire an interior designer, so everything inside is the fruit of their own planning and labor. And what a success: with the house’s modern yet rustic theme, the interior design is on point with lots of large windows, well-curated floor space, and earthy color tones that complement the primary color well.
With one side of the house made entirely out of glass, it’s no wonder that this actor’s Palawan mansion is called a “glass house.”
The house is built around the amazing view. The entire side faces the magnificent white sand beach, and since it’s made out of glass, you can see the beach from wherever you are in the house. The house also features an airy and open floor plan that enhances the summery feel of the place.
Perhaps another striking aspect of the mansion is that it is filled with art of every shape and form. From paintings to sculptures, figures, and furniture, this luxury glasshouse is rich with artistic details that enhance all the senses.
8. Sharon Cuneta’s Elegant Family Mansion in Mandaluyong
Showing nothing but the class that carried the megastar throughout her cinema and music legacy, Sharon’s house is a picture of sophistication and grace – truly an ideal of what celebrity homes could be like.
From the grand staircase to the clever use of design and color, the house resembles a 5-star hotel at every turn. The mansion features a pool with an attached outdoor lounge, a fully equipped well-furnished kitchen, a powder room, and a second living room.
Filled with contemporary design themes yet with a wild and timeless edge to it, the actor’s Batangas 5-story beach house is a vacationer’s dream.
It has a wide floor area that can accommodate friends and family, a mixture of glass and wood elements, and comfortable amenities inside. More than that, the home features the ocean view wonderfully with floor-to-ceiling windows directed at the sight.
Even among other celebrity homes, few could offer a view more striking than that of the ocean sunset at Enrique’s beach house.
10. Kim Chiu’s Glamorously-Chic Home in Quezon City
From the custom double front door of the house alone, you can already feel the princess theme of this young star’s mansion.
Guests are welcomed into a clean foyer that gets them ready for the explosion of beauty in every detail in the living room. Seamlessly blending modern and classical themes, the house certainly feels like a modern castle. It features a magnificent Egyptian Crystal Chandelier and lofty ceilings, a chic dining room that features an entire mural, and a full-scale modern kitchen.
