Most expensive house (we could get into): Atlanta

Posted By: Valerie Patriarca

Looking for a Southern estate? This 17,000-square-foot mansion, set on more than 18 manicured acres in Atlanta, might be just what you want to call "home sweet home."

The estate, listed at $48 million, is being offered fully furnished, and a walk inside reveals a collector's dream. The museum-like setting is decorated with artwork by Pablo Picasso, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and others. The venetian plaster ceilings are modeled after the Braccio Nuovo at the Vatican Museum. There are also 19th century French neoclassical bronze doors and Baccarat crystal from floor to ceiling.

Inside the 2,400-square-foot master suite, a Baccarat crystal and gilt bronze Louis XV chandelier, circa 1900, is on display. Step into the master bathroom, and you will see an onyx bathtub. The details don't end there. Surrounding the shower and water closet are custom art nouveau-inspired carved and deeply etched art glass panels as well as two-sided, custom 18-karat gold door pulls.

And for the wine connoisseur, a pair of antique Parisian bronze mausoleum doors lead to mahogany wine racks that hold more than 1,000 bottles.

The 2,500-square-foot limestone terrace, imported from Jerusalem (with actual fossils inside), offers expansive views of the sprawling estate. Also on the grounds, is a one bedroom, one bathroom pool house with a full kitchen and wet bar, which makes relaxing by the saline swimming pool easier.

Most expensive house (we could get into): Englewood, NJ

Posted By: Heather Schnepf

This Mediterranean-style palace may seem like you're a world away from the hustle and bustle of city life. But, this ultra-private estate is only a mere 10 miles away from the Big Apple in Englewood, New Jersey.

Originally built by European royalty, this house has hosted the likes of Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Paris Hilton. It also boasts another sort of guest: imported South African cranes that live in its backyard bird sanctuary.

This 24,000-square-foot estate is listed at $25 million, and it includes eight bedrooms, nine full bathrooms and an elevator that goes to all four floors. And if that's not enough, there is a custom-made grotto, a movie theater designed from the Vanderbilt theater molds and an infinity pool.

Want to throw a party? There's a bar that was built during the Prohibition era by the Kennedy family. It even had a secret entrance!

The house and property were the setting for Woody Allen's film "The Curse of the Jade Scorpion."

Most expensive house (we could get into): Battery Park, NY

They're calling it "The Penthouse Collection." We call it, New York City's mansion in the sky.

This listing is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to combine not one penthouse, but three! Yep, you read that right: The combination of these units would take up the entire top two floors of the Residences at the Ritz Carlton in NYC's Battery Park City.

The owners of three contiguous apartments are simultaneously putting their units on the market.

The asking price? It can be yours for $118.5 million.

The potential duplex penthouse has stunning 360-degree views from its four terraces, which offer a total of 2,200 square feet of outdoor space. A potential resident can wave to Lady Liberty or soak in the views of One World Trade Center from the outdoor hot tub.

If combined, the trophy penthouse would have more than 12 bedrooms, 15 or more bathrooms and at least three kitchens. With a grand total of 17,634 square feet of space, the buyer also gets the bragging rights of owning one of the largest single-family residences in Manhattan.

Most expensive house (we could get into): Kansas City

It's the ultimate bachelor pad.

This Kansas City, Missouri, home is known for three things: top views of the city's famous Country Club Plaza, the 300-pound Pillsbury Doughboy that looks out from a third-floor window and being a car-collector's paradise.

There is a four-car garage on top, and room for 20 more cars on bottom. But sorry guys, the vintage cars housed there are not included.

What is? Three floors of handcrafted details from pure oak beams to chandeliers and even Rolls-Royce exhaust pipe railings!

Can we get a hallelujah?

This 1924 Tudor estate sitting on nearly 3.5 acres of land was built as a convent—yep, a nunnery—until it was converted into a residence in 1988.

As you walk through the handcrafted front doors, you may think you've found your own slice of heaven, as your eyes are overwhelmed with the more than 15,000 square feet of carefully detailed decor throughout the three-story megamansion.

And if the interior isn't enough, there are the grounds—a private paradise complete with a luxury pool house, in-ground pool, tennis court and hot tub.

Mega-mansion, art gallery or embassy?

The future for this nearly 27,000-square-foot residence is unclear, but rumor has it that everyone from high-net worth individuals to state embassies have stopped by to check out this once-in-a-lifetime property.

Originally built in 1914 as a residence, the mega-mansion was gradually converted into a home and gallery by its owner George Hewitt Myers, a rug and textile collector. Since Myer's passing in 1960, the two-mansion lot, which stretches the length of an entire city block, has been home to The Textile Museum.

And if you weren't already impressed by its history, the architect for this place? None other than John Russell Pope. If his name doesn't ring a bell, then perhaps some of his works may: the Jefferson Memorial, the National Archives' building and the National Gallery of Art.
