13 Dec FAMOUS OWNERS’ HOUSES
Famous Owners’ houses. We have seen them a hundred times on the TV… everything they use becomes famous, but… have we seen their residences? In this new post we’ll review the houses of five famous people (football players, singers…) each of them a reflection of the owner’s personality. Whether we are fans or not, it is really worth having a look at them to get some ideas for our own home!
1. CRISTIANO RONALDO
As some of our readers will know, Portuguese football player Ronaldo’s home is situated in the luxury residential area of La Finca, in Pozuelo de Alarcón, near Madrid. Designed by the studio A-Cero, it has 950 square metres in a land of 4.500 meters large with a stunning swimming pool. The building has five bedrooms (the main one being 70 square metres large with two bathrooms and two dressing rooms), a large living-room with fireplace and a beautiful Japanese-style yard, which gives light to the interior. The house is worth 7 million euros.
2. LIONEL MESSI
The F.C. Barcelona football player has a whole real estate empire in Barcelona, as he possess several buildings there, as a flat in Pedralbes, two houses in Les Corts, a new house under construction with a football pitch shape and this house, located by the beach in Gavà Mar. The house has 400 square metres, divided into two plants, with four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large garden. In contrast to the vast majority of football players, the Argentinian lives in the same residential area as 16 other neighbours, with whom he shares the swimming pool. The house is worth approx. 3,5 million euros.
3. RAFA NADAL
The tennis player Rafa Nadal has also several houses of his own, but some years ago he decided to buy this mansion in Dominican Republic, to share it with his girlfriend, Xisca Perelló, on their holidays. It is a nice house with superb views to the sea, near the jungle and with an access to the golf course from the hotel located in the same area of Playa Nueva Romana, in Bahía Príncipe, where the house stands. The building, that has 450 square metres, has a swimming pool, a beautiful terrace and large windows that face the sea. Simple materials and colour white are predominant in the entire house. The building is worth half a million euros.
4. BUSTAMANTE & PAULA ECHEVARRÍA
The house of the famous couple formed by the singer David Bustamante and the actress Paula Echevarría, presently for sale, is located in the beautiful residential area in Villanueva del Pardillo, near Madrid.

It has six bedrooms, five bathrooms and a 50 square metre terrace, as well as a stunning 80 square metre living-dining room, a projections room and a large play room for their daughter Daniella.
5. BERTÍN OSBORNE
Finally, we will have a look at the house that Bertín Osborne shares with his wife Fabiola and their children.
