Paris Hilton's Homes
Despite being the grandchild of the hotel baron, Conrad Hilton,
who founded of the Hilton hotel chain, Paris Hilton has been working
steadily since she was in middle school, when she began her modeling
career under a Donald Trump company, T Management.

In the years that followed, Paris extended her creative energies
into acting, singing and designing. She is dubiously famous for
being famous. However, some of her most notable accomplishments
include the reality show The Simple Life and a popular
line of fragrances.
Outside the US, Hilton has opened 44 stores bearing her name
and touting her extensive lines of handbags, fragrances, watches,
footwear and other accessories. After all of her years of creative
and entrepreneurial efforts, Hilton has been able to afford two
very comfortable homes in posh neighborhoods among Hollywood's
Hollywood Hills, California
In 2005, at the age of 24, Paris Hilton purchased a 3,000 square
foot home in the exclusive neighborhood of Hollywood Hills, for
just under $3 million. The Spanish style house, built in 1926,
has 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths.

Although, it is rumored that Hilton had one of the bedrooms converted
to a closet, fit to house her impressive couture wardrobe. Hilton's
neighbors at the time included the likes of Charlie
Sheen and Christina
Aguilera, among others. The actress / singer / entrepreneur
put the house up for sale in 2007, shortly after her highly publicized
stint in jail, which had paparazzi camping out in the streets
around her home. The list price at the time was $4.25 million.
Beverly Hills, California
Hilton bought her next home, a Mediterranean style mansion, built
in 1991, shortly thereafter in 2007 in luxurious Beverly Hills.
The nearly 7,000 square foot property, which put her back a cool
$5.9 million, has 5 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms and is located in
the secluded gated community of Mulholland Estates.
Despite the added privacy, afforded by the gated community, Hilton
has suffered several traumatic break-ins, in which burglars, later
named the "Bling Ring", made off with an alleged two
million dollars worth of jewelry, handbags and clothes. These
break-ins eventually inspired a Sofia Coppola movie, named The
Bling Ring. The semi-fictional crime flick, parts of which were
shot at Hilton's home, starred Emma Watson and featured a cameo
by Hilton, herself.

The burglars, no doubt, had an easy time finding Hilton's priceless
collections of accessories and clothing, as Hilton has modified
the home to accommodate 2 decked-out closets, that easily outsize
the average New York apartment. The home also boasts an impressive
dressing room attached to a spa quality marble master bath.
Hilton's home also came with a fully equipped gym and a swimming
pool with attached grotto. But, perhaps the most decadent aspect
of Hilton's house does not belong to Hilton's house at all. It
belongs to her dog, Tinkerbell, whose Spanish-style dog house,
by the pool features a Chihuahua sized balcony, indoor staircase
(complete with intricately designed, wrought iron banisters),
leather couches and a black, crystal chandelier.
