The 7,000-square-foot Mediterranean home has five bedrooms, a 1,500-square-foot artist's studio, a six-car garage, a solar-heated pool and an organic garden.

Former Faces frontman and all-round rock star Rod Stewart owns a bright yellow mansion in Palm Beach. It cost $12.5 million, but for that you get a private beach, football pitch and a carting track. We think that's pretty sexy.

Frank Sinatra's former penthouse at 532 E. 72nd St. in New York is now listed for around $7.7 million. The duplex party pad was once described by artist Andy Warhol as a "glittering grotto in the sky." The home hosted many a wild Rat Pack party, despite the fact that the top level was't connected to the the lower. Sinatra and friends would climb the building stairs.

Celine Dion owns a $20 million “water-park” house on Jupiter Island, Florida that uses 6 million gallons of water per year. They even have five private wells on site to guard against a water shortage. No hosepipe ban for her. It's perhaps fitting that 'Titanic' probably paid for most of it.
