10 celebrities who live in modest houses even though they are millionaires

The amount of money that some people spend on their luxury homes often seems extravagant to us. That's how it seems to some celebrities who, despite earning millions, live in completely modest homes compared to their colleagues.

Bright Side has made a list of them.

Robert Pattinson

About 6 months after ending his relationship with Kristen Stewart, with whom he shared a large house in Los Angeles (which measured 4,026 square feet, to be exact), he decided to sell his property and moves to a house nearby, in the city, but much more modest. Pattinson, with an estimated net worth of $100 million, bought the nearly 2,000-square-foot home for just $2,176,500.

Kartheiser lived in a small cabin of 500 square meters. Yes, you read that right, 500 square meters. Inspired by the concept of industrial houses in Japan, Kartheiser tried to create a comfortable apartment, taking advantage of every available centimeter. He was finally able to sell the cabin, but for much less than he had expected as the original asking price was $808,000 and he sold it for $650,000. He actually bought it for $547,000. But considering the total remodeling job, which cost him more than $100,000, you could say it wasn't a very profitable investment.

This actress, who in 2015 was announced by Forbes as the highest-paid actress in the world (collecting $ 52 million that year alone), continued to live in a 1,413-square-foot apartment located in Santa Monica. In 2012, she said in an interview that she was used to living in 'normal' places, so it would be strange for her to find herself alone in a large mansion. However, despite these statements, she has made 2 significant investments: in 2014, she bought a 5,500-square-foot house in Los Angeles and in 2017, a $9 million, over 3,100-square-foot apartment in Tribeca.

Lena Dunham

As hard as it may be to believe she lived in an apartment with only one bedroom and one bathroom. Dunham bought the 800-square-foot property in 2012, the year her series premiered, for just $500,000. However, when we look at where the house is located, that price seems small compared to the prices around. The apartment was located in Brooklyn Heights, the wealthy residential area of ​​New York City. But she didn't stay long in that apartment. In 2014, she rented it out and in 2017, she finally sold it for $850,000, making more than $300,000.

Despite owning a net worth of about $70.5 billion, Edward Buffett, President and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, still lives in the same house he bought in 1957 for about $31,500 (currently worth more than $600,000). His small house located in Omaha, Nebraska has 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.

His home is by no means modest, but considering his immense wealth, it is small. This 89-year-old billionaire could live anywhere in the world he wanted, but he chose to stay in the city where he was born.

This American writer, director and producer generated much of his fortune between the late 1990s and 2000s, which he then invested in a mansion of around 17,000 square meters.

Tech entrepreneur Mark Zuckerberg lives in a $7 million property, a price that's not cheap at all. However, considering that it is located in Silicon Valley, an extremely expensive region if we are talking about real estate, and considering that Zuckerberg is worth about 76.4 billion dollars from Facebook, we can say that this house is not an excessive luxury .

Zuckerberg's most important expense is privacy. He spent $30 million buying 4 properties around his house to tear them down and build smaller ones.

If you had the wealth that many of these millionaires own, where would you choose to live?
