Celebrities and luxury real estate have long resided hand in hand. But being in the public eye comes with a loss of privacy that makes it all the more important to have a home where one can kick back and escape the world. The new fall/winter 2015 edition of Grand Vie: Luxury in Living, North Texas’ premier luxury home magazine, highlights three of our favorite celeb-worthy homes that provide an ultraluxe lifestyle with the utmost privacy.
PAULA DEEN | GEORGIA
Set along the Wilmington River, Paula Deen’s aptly named “Riverbend” estate is a picture-perfect retreat in Savannah, Georgia. Essentially its own private resort set on 5 1/2 acres, the French Caribbean-style main house boasts 14,500 square feet with a stunning gourmet kitchen fit for any celebrity chef (whether you love butter or not), but it’s the property’s outdoor kitchen that really takes the prize.

NICOLE RICHIE | CALIFORNIA
Fashion designer, actress and daughter of legendary singer Lionel Richie, Nicole Richie’s gated compound in the Hollywood Hills is an architectural gem with all the fixings. Whether you’re an A-lister in need of a getaway or just looking for an accommodating family property, this SoCal compound fits the bill with five spacious bedrooms, a children’s play area and a fully equipped barbecue station.

STEVE MARTIN | FRENCH WEST INDIES
When you’re one of Hollywood’s most enduring and charismatic stars, you need a Caribbean hideaway to get off the grid. For funnyman Steve Martin, that comes in the form of Villa Au Soleil, a stunning Saint Barthélemy property with a low-key, island vibe evidenced in the brightly colored walls, beautiful stonework and mesmerizing views over St. Jean Bay and the Caribbean Sea.
