The first thing many celebrities do when they become rich and famous is buy a huge house. After all, who doesn’t want to live in a massive house? Star mega-mansions around the world include insane amenities like swimming pools, home theaters, and even elevators! However, not all celebrities think alike. You see, a handful of them actually prefer simple, modest homes.
Some celebrities prefer simple homes because they want to save before retirement, others simply don’t need or want ample living space. Whatever the reason, plenty of stars, including the likes of Matthew McConaughey and Dolly Parton, have opted for a small, modest home…
1. Christina Ricci
While Christina Ricci could have simply purchased just about any home that she wanted with her $18 million net worth, she settled for a one that simply suits her needs. Back in 2005, the Black Snake Moan actress bought a two-bedroom property for $1.5 million.
Ricci’s modest Mediterranean style home sits at just 1,891 square feet, on a lot not much bigger. Meanwhile, inside, the house has a vintage theme, a swimming pool, terraced gardens, and a patio. However, it looks like Ricci won’t be throwing any dining parties here! While it doesn’t have a dining room, it does have a modesty sized eat-in kitchen.
