Celeb homes far from the red carpet

Do you ever wonder how your favorite celebrities live when they’re off the red carpet? Last week HGTV’s Hollywood at Home gave viewers an intimate look inside the homes of some of the entertainment industry’s most intriguing celebrities. Keep reading to check out where these stars kick back when they’re not on the "star" side of the velvet ropes in Hollywood.

Andie MacDowell, Mark Ballas, Carly Patterson, Kelly Bensimon, Natalie Coughlin and George Jones gave viewers a personal look at the spaces they love. Decide which celebrity home is your favorite sanctuary away from Hollywood -- you might be pleasantly surprised to see where some of these stars actually live.

Andie MacDowell

The award-winning actress has a traditional Tudor-style home in Asheville, North Carolina. The house boasts almost 11,000 square feet, with stunning views of the rolling hills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. MacDowell created a family home focused around the lives of her three children. You won't find any tributes to her celebrity life in the decor -- instead, she showcases photos of her children among comfortable gathering areas and a huge kitchen.

Mark Ballas

The Dancing with the Stars champion used musical accents to decorate his West Hollywood bachelor pad. He may be best known for strutting his stuff on DWTS, but he's actually a talented musician, too -- from Kurt Cobain tribute artwork to creating acoustically pleasing rooms, Ballas made his home a music-lover's paradise.

Our favorite highlight:

Ballas' collection of guitars as gallery artwork throughout the home.

George Jones

The country music legend has a 78-acre estate just outside of Nashville. His traditional home is filled with photos and memorabilia of his career and life (Jones has recorded over 100 albums). The grounds of the estate are filled with gorgeous trees and gardens because the singer loves to work outside.

The Olympic Gold medalist and singer showed us her first condo since leaving the nest. Patterson didn't stray too far from home, and enlisted the help of her mom with decorating the two-bedroom pad that showcases modern and traditional accents.

Our favorite highlight:
