Multi - Million Luxury House — Famous People in the World

We look at the residence of the most famous people in the U.S. and around the world. They can afford a house at the prodigious rate of 109 million dollars, and also like to park your plane right at the front door. Their dwellings are besieged by fans, and the newest tech devices in the home will be surprised, even science fiction. You will have an opportunity to go away from such world stars as Bill Gates, Johnny Depp, Nicole Kidman, Harrison Ford, Nicolas Cage, Demi Moore and many others.

01. Julia Roberts as the most beloved American, but her heart belongs to a ranch in Taos, New Mexico, which she shares with her husband Danny Moder and their three children, twins Hanzelom and Fines four years, and 22-month-old Henry.

02. Nicole Kidman was born in Australia, she works in Los Angeles, and married to singer Keith Urban, who works in Nashville. What did she do? Of course, to buy real estate in all three of these places! (Getty Images) Nicole Urban lived in this house in Nashville, but sold it in 2008, nearly 2.36 million dollars. Immediately after that, they spent 2.45 million for the purchase of 36 acres in nearby Franklin, Tennessee.
03. Nicolas Cage loves to travel. He has a house in England, Las Vegas, New York, New Orleans, San Francisco and Los Angeles. While Nicolas Cage is selling his German castle, which he bought in 2006, he still owns the castle in the English style 18 th century in the city of Bath. Here, 60 acres, and property worth about $ 10 million.
04. Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell have many homes outside the core, located in the Pacific Pelisayds, California, including those they have a ranch in Colorado, home in Ontario, a penthouse in Manhattan and a house on the beach in Malibu. (AP) Hawn and Russell bought the house in Vancouver for $ 3 million in 2002 to ensure that their son, a hockey player could live here during the Games.
05. Sandra Bullock spends most of his time in Austin, Texas, but after filming the movie "Forces of Nature", held in 1999 in Georgia, the actress decided to buy a country house there. Sandra Bullock - the owner of the house on the beach of Tybee Island, near Savannah, Georgia.
06. Teenagers from the group "Jonas Brothers, brothers Kevin (20), Joe (18) and Nick (15) bought a house in the vicinity of Dallas-Fort, and intend to buy space in the summer of this year worth 2.8 million dollars. The residential complex owned by his brothers, called "Vaquero", and includes 6 bedrooms and a total area of 7360 square feet. The house they shared with the professional athletes of all sports, when they come to the game. Near the complex is what is constantly on duty wrecker.
07. The father of four children, Harrison Ford said: "The house - a place where children return from school" - that explains why he spends more time at his home in Los Angeles than in his new residence in New York or at the ranch in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The photo - Ford ranch in Wyoming covering 800 acres. There is always the sea of snow, which should be cleaned with a shovel, and this often involved inexpensive movers and gardeners, but we suspect that the man who played Indiana Jones, is able to do even more.
08. Millions of people have had the pleasure contemplate that former supermodel Niki Taylor in the pages of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. Now Nicky lives in this ranch in French colonial style in 7 acres and cost $ 2 million in Nashville. She lives here with her husband Bernie Lamareaux and their children - twins, teenagers and a newborn baby, born in early March.
09. Demi Moore, a longtime resident of Hailey, Idaho, near the famous resort of Sun Valley. Moore, together with her ex-husband Bruce Willis decided to raise their three daughters out of show business, away from Hollywood in Idaho.
10. Johnny Depp was born in Owensboro, Kentucky, and is now ruled by Hollywood, but he lives in a house in France with his long-standing French passions, singer Vanessa Paradis. Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis live in the upscale suburb of Paris - Meudon. This celebrity couple attracted so much attention that their neighbor had left a note on the house, stating that in fact Johnny Depp does not live here. But no, of course, was not misled.
11. Bill Gates comes from Seetla, and after the foundation of Microsoft's built his dream house in 1997 in Medina, Washington. House Gates worth $ 109 million is on Lake Washington. This residence occupies an area of 11500 square feet and literally crammed with every foot of the newest tech devices, so it may seem that this house - from the science-fiction books. Absolutely everything here is controlled by remote controls or touch screens - from the floor heating to the setting of light and music throughout the house.
12. John Travolta often speaks of his love for flying on planes, so it is no surprise that his hobby is playing a role in the purchase of real estate. John Travolta and Kelly Preston called his home this residence in a modest town of Ocala, Florida. They bought this house for 8 million in 2003, largely because it has the largest private runway in the U.S.. Travolta loves to park his Boeing 707 next to the front door. "If out of her bedroom window I can see the plane - I'm happy," - said John Travolta.

Grass Roofs in Norway

Not all environment solutions involve modern technology or new ideas. Grass roofs on houses in Norway are one such case. Translated literally, torvtak is "turf roof." For hundreds of years turf roofs have been popular in Norway.  More images after the break...

No two turf roofs are the same. Some are bright green and almost velvety. Others are golden and look like they're growing wheat or oats. A number of turf roofs have flowers mixed in with the grass, and a few have small trees.
The advantages of turf roofs are many. They are very heavy, so they help to stabilize the house; they provide good insulation; and they are long-lasting. Special skills and materials are required to prepare the roof for the turf topping.
Turf roofs in Norway are a tradition and you will see them everywhere. This is not some new architectural trend in London or New York!
Here is a link to some photos of the more recent, trendy green roofs. Meanwhile, in the UK the government would like to see more people go for grass roofs and suggest such a move could cut their tax bill.

Iguazu Falls — South America's Mightiest Waterfall

Iguazu Falls are waterfalls of the Iguazu River located on the border of the Brazilian State of Paraná and the Argentine Province of Misiones. The falls divide the river into the upper and lower Iguazu. The Iguazu River starts at the city of Curitiba and runs for the most part of the course in Brazil and at the end at the border of Brazil and Argentina. More images after the break...

Their name comes from the Guarani or Tupi words y (water) and ûasú [waˈsu] (big). Legend has it that a god planned to marry a beautiful aborigine named Naipí, who fled with her mortal lover Tarobá in a canoe. In rage, the god sliced the river creating the waterfalls, condemning the lovers to an eternal fall. The first European to find the falls was the Spanish Conquistador Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca in 1541, after whom one of the falls in the Argentine side is named. The falls were rediscovered by Bosellz at the end of the nineteenth century, and one of the Argentine falls is named after him. Iguazu Falls was short-listed as a candidate to be one of the New7Wonders of Nature by the New Seven Wonders of the World Foundation. As of February 2009 it was ranking fifth in Group F, the category for lake, rivers, and waterfalls. Via Link
