10 Most Expensive Celebrity Estates Currently on the Market.

It’s the season for selling, and celebs of all sorts — from “Real Housewives” to singer-songwriters — are jumping on the real estate bandwagon,. Not every slice of celebrity real estate is priced the same; some hit below the $1 million mark, and others top the list for the most expensive properties on the market. This time around we’re sampling high-end celeb homes currently for sale, starting with a Florida estate listed for a whopping $125 million.

Gianni Versace

For Sale — $125 million
Miami Beach, FL

Topping the list is Gianni Versace’s custom and over-the-top estate in Miami Beach. Recently listed for $125 million, the late fashion designer’s home at 1116 Ocean Dr., Miami Beach FL 33139 currently operates as a hotel. Sitting on nearly a half-acre of beachfront, the home has 23,462 square feet of living space.

Joe Montana

For Sale – $35 million
Calistoga, CA

Almost $100 million less than Versace’s home, but at $35 million, is former NFL quarterback great Joe Montana’s home, which is still well out of most homebuyers’ budgets. Originally listed in January 2010, Montana’s 500-acre estate at 10500 Franz Valley Rd., Calistoga, CA 94515  was priced at $49 million.

Katharine Hepburn

For Sale – $30 million
Old Saybrook, CT

Katharine Hepburn’s home was the centerpiece of the Hepburn family compound. Rebuilt by Hepburn herself after a 1938 hurricane, the estate at 10 Mohegan Ave., Old Saybrook, CT 06475 was Hepburn’s home until her death in 2003. Restored by new owners in 2004, the home was listed for sale in June 2011.

Michael Jordan

For Sale – $29 million
Highland Park, IL

An indoor regulation-sized basketball court, high-end amenities and security gates emblazoned with the famous No. 23 — this Chicago-area home for sale could only belong to the one and only Michael Jordan. Jordan’s custom home at 2700 Point Dr., Highland Park IL 60035 sprawls over 8 acres.

Michael Jackson

For Sale – $23.9 million
Los Angeles, CA

The other “MJ” on this list spent his final days in an enormous Beverly Glen, CA home. The King of Pop rented the 17,000-square-foot French Chateau-style estate at 100 N Carolwood Dr., Los Angeles, CA 90077 for a reported $100,000 a month.

Rosie O’Donnell

For Sale – $19.5 million
Miami Beach, FL

Shortly after Rosie O’Donnell left Chicago and her OWN cable talk show, she decided to also list her vacation spot in Florida. She picked up the Miami Beach home in 1999 for $6.79 million and extensively renovated the estate at 43 Star Island Dr., Miami Beach, FL 33139 over the years.

Kelsey and Camille Grammer

For Sale – $17.999 million
Beverly Glen, CA

Kelsey and Camille Grammer amassed quite the real estate collection during their marriage, and although their divorce is finalized, the former Hollywood couple still have a few homes that they need to sell off, including this Beverly Glen, CA estate. The couple bought the 10,567-square-foot house at 261 Baroda Dr., Los Angeles CA 90077 for $13.7 million in 2007 and first attempted to sell it for $18.9 million in 2008.

Alicia Keys

For Sale – $17.95 million
New York, NY

Singer Alicia Keys’ slick SoHo real estate market triplex is a full study in modern and glassy interiors. Keys and her producer husband, Swizz Beatz, bought their penthouse at 30 Crosby St., New York, NY 10013 from the place’s previous musical resident, Lenny Kravitz, for $12.75 million in 2010.

Derek Jeter

For Sale – $17.95 million
New York, NY

New York Yankees’ longtime shortstop and popular ladies’ man Derek Jeter listed his enormous bachelor pad for sale in an effort to downsize.

Zsa Zsa Gabor

For Sale – $14.9 million
Los Angeles, CA

Wrapping up the list is the queen of silver screen glamor herself, Zsa Zsa Gabor. Gabor’s home has bounced on and off the Bel Air real estate market quite a bit in the past few years as the aging starlet struggles with health issues. Most recently the estate at 1001 Bel Air Rd., Los Angeles CA 90077 was listed with a price increase, and reports are that it’s being used in an upcoming HBO film.
