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.

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. For more on Paula Deen’s Savannah estate, click here.
