Top Ten Big Brother Houses Around The World

Top Ten Big Brother Houses Around The World


If you are a big brother fan then this post is for you.  The world’s most addictive reality television programme is about to kick off in Africa while already airing in Germany and the UK, the Celebrity Big Brother housemates are settling into their new homes away from home. But it’s not just the contestants that capture the attention of Big Brother’s global audience.
From indoor pools to secret rooms, luxurious hot tubs to futuristic furnishings, the Big Brother houses are anything but boring. Lets take you on a tour of the top 10 Big Brother houses around the world.
Germany’s Celebrity Haven
The first series of Promi Big Brother (Celebrity Big Brother) in Germany created a lavish escape for its celebrity residents. Taking opulence one step further, the house boasted fur bedcovers, thrones, animal skin rugs and gold-plated furnishings. And that’s just the inside. A beach, pool bar and hot tub were just a few of the luxuries on hand for the chosen celebrities to make use of during their stay.

Australia’s Lap of Luxury
Located just outside the Dreamworld theme park in Gold Coast Australia, the Big Brother 2009 house adopted an aquatic theme, with extravagant fish tanks, Captain’s Quarters, complete with a swimming pool and sauna, and sea-life-inspired decor. The house included a naughty room, for any misbehaving housemates, complete with an opaque to transparent window, for the other residents’ pleasure.

Africa’s All Stars
The house for Africa’s very first All Star season was the epitome of lavish, dripping with jewels and plush velvet accessories. With chandeliers, candelabras and rich furnishings that wouldn’t look out of place in a royal palace, spending 92 days in this dream house would definitely not cause a problem.

American Dream
The house for the USA’s Big Brother 15 series played on a mid-century modern theme, with each room’s decor designed to capture the imagination of its housemates: Themes include: The jet-setter room, with its own glamorous cocktail bar, vintage decor and futuristic seating area; the bathroom for senses, designed like a sauna; and the skyline room, a luxurious, monochrome penthouse. And there’s plenty of entertainment to keep the housemates occupied, including a pool table, chess board and immersion pool.

Indonesia’s Celebrity Enclosure
Trapped in the house for more than 30 days, with no contact with the outside world, Celebrity Big Brother in Indonesia quarantined its housemates in a house with more than 50 cameras. Those lucky enough to avoid the celebrity “cell”, used to capture badly-behaved housemates, enjoyed luxurious outdoor lounge areas to soak up the sun.

Bulgarian Retreat
For season four of Big Brother Bulgaria, the lucky housemates were treated to 3,000km2 of luxury near the country’s capital of Sofia. The stunning house included an indoor swimming pool and gym area, a shop, and an outdoor relaxation area, complete with its own fireplace.

Croatian Paradise
Despite being the fifth season of Big Brother Croatia, the house is actually located in Thailand. Now this house is not your average BB home; in the garden, not only is there a stunning lake, swimming pool and palm trees, but also pet elephants for the housemates to look after during their stay.

Filipino Design Heaven
Now in its fifth season, Pinoy Big Brother welcomed its housemates into an interior designer’s dream. With textured wallpapers, complementary patterns and prints, and eccentric furniture, the Big Brother house is spacious, colorful and full to the brim with modern, lavish amenities.

British Grandeur
Celebrity Big Brother 2014 has just kicked off in the UK, but let’s look back to 2013 to the beautiful abode that became the inmates’ new home. The theme was clearly opulence for 2013, with chandeliers dangling from the ceiling, bearskin rugs and gold adornments, fit for any VIP. There was no shortage of luxury, with topiaries and statues, a treehouse and hot tub to keep the celebrities occupied during their stay.

Relax in Brazil
If you were lucky enough to enter Big Brother Brazil’s season 11 house and live in the Rich House, you would never want to leave. The mansion interior boasts candy-themed bedrooms, a retro, neon kitchen and zen bathroom, whilst the exterior’s palm tree-lined, poolside sun haven provides the perfect location for housemates to relax, sunbathe, take a dip in the pool, relax in the hot tub and truly enjoy their stay. Those subjected to life in the Poor House, were not quite so lucky. Life on this side of Big Brother lacks beds, food, and fun of any kind.

Enigma Mansion: South Africa’s Most Expensive Property!






Jawitz markets opulent Cape Town residence South Africa’s most expensive property, Enigma Mansion

Jawitz Properties has secured the hottest mandate in South Africa to date – for the most expensive, luxurious property to come on to the residential market. This 7130m 2 palatial residence, known as Enigma Mansion, situated in the most prestigious and prime residential area of Cape Town, between Clifton and Camps Bay, comes with a price tag of R300 million (€30 million/$36,5 million).

The property in its entirety takes up four erven, between three streets in the most sought out area of Camps Bay – The Glen — best known for being a luxurious, peaceful haven, sheltered from Cape Town’s well-known, ferocious wind. Just 50 metres from the base of Table Mountain Park and adjoining a nature reserve on two of its other boundaries, Enigma comprises 6000m 2 of outdoor space including parks and gardens with attractive waterways and ponds.

“Despite its private and quiet location, the bustling restaurants and cafés along Camps Bay beach are just three minutes away, bringing convenience to this dream coastal lifestyle that Enigma Mansion epitomises,” says Francois Venter, Director of Jawitz Properties.

The main residence has three floors and stretches over 1586m2, with a 627m2 basement level, ground floor totalling 638m2, and first floor covering 321m2. A studio at the west bottom of the property has its own separate street access with living space of 264m 2 spread over the ground and first floors, and there is a separate guest house on site with private street access comprising 250m 2.

The residence also offers an atelier, winter garden, sauna, gym, teahouse, massage temple, staff quarters, herb and vegetable garden as well as many terraces, with the highlight being an artistically – designed Olympic-sized swimming pool with marble inlays.

Enigma houses every possible luxury, from its state-of-the-art technology system with iPads controlling all the functions throughout the property, an 80m2 3D cinema, and an extensive selection of artwork from paintings and photographs, to sculptures and statues.

The décor surpasses 7-star quality and is an eclectic mix of Classic, French, Asian, Georgian Colonial, and Moroccan influences, with luxury fitted into every detail. Taking inspiration from the Louis XIV period and Hotel Costes in Paris, the interior features were chosen for their beauty and opulence, with no expense spared and include bespoke, imported wall fabrics, curtains, rugs, and antique fittings and finishes.

The property benefits from 24 hour armed response and 36 cameras monitoring the grounds at all times. There are electronic safes in each bedroom, as well as panic buttons, and a ‘panic room’ in the master suite. For extra peace of mind, there are 16 security guards that patrol the premises 24 hours a day.

With a glamorous history, Enigma Mansion has previously acted as accommodation for A-list celebrities, artists, CEOs of big corporations, royalty and other high net worth individuals, and has been used for photo shoots and as a movie location.

It took seven years to plan and build this dream property, with the aim of achieving the most unique collaboration of style and luxury in to a stunning setting that boasts unrivalled beauty.

Enigma is unlike any other residence in South Africa and can only be compared to extravagant homes in the South of France, Beverley Hills or Long Island. Enigma Mansion defines an unsurpassed, luxurious lifestyle and is a home making history in the South African property market.
