Ozzy Osbourne – $10 million

Ozzy Osbourne is one of the greatest musical stars of all time, and he lives with his longtime wife in Los Angeles. His home sits in the Hidden Hills neighborhood, which is famous for its homes. His house looks like a modest, upscale home from the street. However, once you get inside it becomes a bit more impressive. With just under 11,000 square feet of living space, Osbourne’s home features 6 bedrooms, 10 baths and an outdoor swimming pool that’s heated for use in cooler weather. It’s slightly hidden from view, which makes it all the more appealing.
