Celebrities live extravagant lives. Case in point: These A-listers and their houses.

This year, we saw a lot of famous faces move around the country. While Emily Blunt and John Krasinski left sunny California for the east coast, Kylie and Kendall Jenner both expanded their real estate empire in their home state. To cap off 2016, we’re looking back at the biggest and most outrageous celebrity homes we’ve seen on the market in the past 12 months.

From Lady Gaga’s historical estate to exes Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale’s one-time marital mansion, here are the most noteworthy properties of the year.

If you thought their former Los Angeles mansion was impressive, wait until you get a load of the new place they got this year.

While this wasn’t the most expensive or lavish property bought by a celebrity this year, it was one of the more memorable ones. After all, there was so much drama behind the purchase! Rob, who was staying with his older sister Khloé Kardashian earlier this year, was kicked out of his living quarters after his family discovered that he had started dating his little sister’s boyfriend’s baby mama, Blac Chyna. Seeing how Rob was starting to get his life back again after years of struggling with depression, Kris Jenner dropped $2.2 million on this four-bedroom, five-bathroom house this February in hopes that her son will become more independent. However, that move — along with the fact that Kris was responsible for all the furniture in the home — caused an even bigger divide amongst her children. In true Kardashian fashion, every was captured for their reality show. ~*~ DRAMA ~*~
