14. Kirribilli House
Who lives here: The Prime Minister of Australia
Technically, the PM Down Under can spend his time at either of his two official residences, but many recent holders of the office preferred Sydney's Kirribilli House over The Lodge in Canberra. The current Aussie PM, Tony Abbott, actually sank over $120k into the Sydney residence, pimping it out with everything from a landscaping overhaul to nearly $25k worth of luxe carpeting. Clearly Mr Abbott, like Mr Lebowski, understands how some floor decoration can bring a whole room (or house) together. At the end of the day, though, it is just a normal house, albeit a nice one located in Australia -- land of sunshine, koalas, and Yvonne Strahovski.
13. Mahlamba Ndlopfu
Pretoria, South Africa
Who lives here: The President of South Africa
Built in 1940 on Pretoria's luxe Bryntirion Estate, Mahlamba Ndlopfu used to be the residence of the PM, and went by the name "Libertas." After Nelson Mandela became the country's first president, though, the place's Cape Dutch architecture received a bit of a facelift (not to mention a name change), and these days the whole place is surrounded by lavish gardens. That being said, the fact that it's not open to the general public and can't really be seen from any public roads keeps it from achieving peak levels of awesomeness.
