Water Park

This huge water park was built for singer Celine Dion and her late husband at their Jupiter Island home in Florida in 2010.

Potential buyers don’t seem to see the epic water feature as a selling point.

The home was originally listed for $US72.5 million and is now on the market for $US45 million.

Twinkling the ivories isn’t a skill most would associate with funnyman Eddie Murphy, but the star had a Schimmel Pegasus piano installed into his Sacremento mansion.

Only 14 of these distinctive looking pianos were ever made and most cost at least $US110,000. Many have been bought by the likes of Lenny Kravitz and Prince.

Rose Pink & a Stripper Pole

Rocker Slash is known for a lot of things, but who knew the guitarist for Guns’N’Roses was such a fan of pink?

Soft rose pink can be found in numerous rooms of his Tuscan-style Californian home.

Oh sure it has its own stripper pole in the nightclub-like room that comes with a DJ booth – but you expect that from Slash.

It’s just the soft pink that few saw coming.

The Antique Indoor Swing

There are many things to note about the interior of Gwyneth Paltrow’s luxury penthouse in New York.

The Tribeca property which she is struggling to sell has an indoor swing for the kids- but this one is made from an antique door.

Paltrow’s lifestyle website GOOP describes the white apartment as a “pale, dreamy cloud” – but is it one the kids get to swing on?

The Candy Room

Minecraft creator Markus Persson reportedly spent $US70 million on his house and it comes with a room just for candy. The room itself is thought to hold up to $US50,000 worth of sweet stuff.

Personal Church & a Lonely Lama

While building a chapel or church was once commonly undertaken by the aristocracy particularly in the UK, it’s not something you expect at say Michael Jackon’s Neverland ranch.

The reclusive singer’s estate also included a series of zoo once filled with an array of exotic animals, now there are just a few barns and this lama:
