Photo by: Zillow Two-time Olympic gold medalist Shaun White’s career may revolve around snow, but that didn’t stop him from buying a seaside residence in Encinitas, Calif. The professional snowboarder paid $3.85 million for this home in 2012.

Following some issues with the accommodations and glitches during the opening ceremonies, the XXII Olympic Winter Games are finally underway, bringing both new and familiar faces to Sochi, Russia. When you’re watching these elite athletes glide down the slopes or pull off flawless triple axels, do you ever wonder where they spend their downtime? Well, we did, which is why we went on a hunt for homes of some of our favorite Olympic athletes. From snowboarder Shaun White’s surprisingly sun-drenched beach house to swimmer Michael Phelps’ contemporary waterfront condo, tour the homes of Olympic stars from both the Winter and Summer Games.
