The beautiful homes of Filipino celebrities showcase nothing else but the fruit of all their hard work in the showbiz industry. As home to two major television networks in the country, GMA and ABS-CBN, Quezon City is a popular choice among actresses and actors to live. Most of these dream homes are built according to the celebrities’ preferred lifestyles and designs, some of which took several years to complete. Below are 7 Filipino celebrities who choose to have their humble homes at the heart of Quezon City.
The multi-awarded actor is one of the artists in the entertainment industry whose accomplishments paved way to a 2,000 square-meter-dream home in Fairview, Quezon City. It took about four years for the house to be completed with particular features designed by national artists such as the late Abdulmari Imao for the main door. The house is heavy on tropical designs visible in both the interior and exterior sections of the home with furnishings that have an elegant but rustic appeal.
Another popular name in show business is Daniel Padilla whose Mediterranean-inspired house, also located in Fairview, Quezon City, is dedicated to his mom and his siblings. It has a warm and relaxing ambiance achieved through the lanai near the house’s front door and the spacious interiors. One of the interesting features of the house is its main doors, which were custom-made especially for the family home with its wrought-iron details.
Ogie Alcasid and Regine Velasquez
Celebrity couple Ogie Alcasid and Regine Velasquez chose to reside in one of the high-end communities in Quezon City, the Ayala Hillside Estates. Modern pieces adorn this three-story house although it has an overall minimal appeal. Designers for these pieces are famed artists such as Kenneth Cobonpue and Ann Pamintuan. An infinity pool and a music room complement the couple’s love for the countryside feel and their professional careers as singers and songwriters.
One of the female celebrities close to every Filipino’s heart is actress Heart Evangelista whose love for white is also represented in her home’s overall theme. As a painter, she owns a collection of artwork where she would like to display inside her home and she chose the white wall as a fitting backdrop for her gallery. The house has a minimalist design but decorated with exquisite pieces in intricate details. One particular highlight in her home is its well-designed windows and glass doors that enhance better circulation in every part of the house.
A mix of modern and classic designs can be seen in the humble abode of Pinoy Big Brother grand winner and Kapamilya actress, Kim Chiu. The three-story house built on the 600-square meter lot displays a sleek and sophisticated façade by incorporating modern elements such as stone columns with classic, single-pane windows. Plush and soft materials adorn the living area for a more sophisticated appeal set in beige and neutral tones. The actress has a loft-type bedroom decorated with anything pink as this is her favorite color.
Eddie Gutierrez and Annabelle Rama
Another celebrity couple who owns one of the beautiful homes in White Plains, Quezon City is Eddie Gutierrez and Annabelle Rama. Their newly renovated haven, which was bought and first built in 1987, now has a simple and yet more contemporary look. The only features of the house which they retained are the foundations and the high ceiling. One-of-a-kind masterpieces bought abroad, which are a part of Annabelle’s expensive collection, fill up the shelves in the first floor’s living room. The house also has another living room located on the second floor.
The classic and modern blend is definitely achieved in Bea Alonzo’s home in Quezon City, which combines modern and traditional styles. It reflects design combinations of hotels, resorts, and the dazzle of a glossy finish. The facade has a grand appeal and complemented with stone claddings for a warmer effect. Details in the living area portray elegance with accent pieces such as the one-of-a-kind, necklace-type chandelier in the living room and glossy mosaic tiles along the hallway. There are chandeliers in almost every part of Bea’s house and another highlight in the general features of the house is the outdoor, irregularly-sized pool designed with a waterfall at the end of it.
Each of these lovely homes is reflective of the personality and style of the celebrities off-screen. They may play different roles on television and film, but just like any other ordinary person, the home is where their hearts are when they need to have their moments of solace and comfort after a hard day’s work. Indeed, all the endless days of tapings, rehearsals, and shows pay off giving life to these beautiful homes that used to be a dream but have now become a reality for these Filipino actors and actresses.
