Most expensive house (we could get into): New York City

Posted By: Heather Schnepf

Ownership of a posh penthouse is a true luxury, but being able to call a two-story one in New York City's iconic Plaza Hotel your home takes the meaning of luxury to another level.

This 6,000-square-foot duplex soars 18 floors above Central Park and is home to fashion mogul Tommy Hilfiger.

The penthouse's interior design is the epitome of Hilfiger's eye for style. Tortoiseshell borders adorn the walls in the formal living room, the dining room has a gilded gold leaf ceiling and there is an impressive art collection, with paintings from Andy Warhol, Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. For fans of the children's book "Eloise at the Plaza," there's even a sitting room with a custom-painted "Eloise" mural painted by the book's illustrator.

The home, which was previously listed at $80 million, features five bedrooms, 5 ½ baths and a private terrace, which boasts impressive views of Central Park.

Most expensive house (we could get into): Santa Barbara, Calif.

Posted By: Valerie Patriarca

This 1918 hilltop estate in Santa Barbara, California, was originally built for one of the founding fathers of Ford Motor.

When you arrive at the estate, you can walk past an 18th century fountain and right through the pair of 16th century carved Italian doors into 12,000 square feet of living space packed with history. The long halls of this Spanish revival offer a hundred feet of gallery space and are lined with antiques like 1920s gilt bronze and crystal chandeliers.

Several terraces overlook the Santa Barbara Harbor as well as the famous estate of reclusive heiress Huguette Clark. If that's not enough to keep your attention, take a stroll through the three-level garden amphitheater.

And since the estate is located in the heart of wine country, you won't have to worry about where to store your collection. There are two wrought-iron and glass-clad wine cellars that hold a total of 4,400 bottles.

For $25 million, this 8 acres of Santa Barbara hilltop could be yours. But wait there's more—if you have an extra $11 million in your pocket, there's a 4-acre lot for sale right next door, which would make you the king of the hill.

Most expensive hotel room (we could get into): NYC

Posted By: Heather Schnepf

At $45,000 per night, the Four Seasons Ty Warner Penthouse suite is the king of all hotel rooms in New York City.

A private elevator soars 800 feet above the Big Apple to the 52nd floor revealing impressive 360-degree views of Manhattan from 25-foot-tall bronze-clad windows.

The megasuite features one bedroom, one-and-a-half bathrooms, a baby grand piano, four outdoor terraces, a Zen meditation room and a private spa.

Every detail—from the 700-square-foot library to the semi-precious stones from China inlaid in the walls—was hand-picked by Ty Warner—the hotel's owner and the creator of Beanie Babies. (That explains the Beanie Babies store in the hotel's lobby, in case you were wondering.)

With the price of the suite, the hotel throws in unlimited Cristal Champagne, caviar and massages, plus a 24/7 personal butler and a chauffeur to whisk you around town in a $475,000 black Rolls-Royce Phantom.

The hotel bill may be steep, but this video tour is free. Check out the most expensive hotel room (we could get into) in New York City.

$3.6M mansion: Your own 'field of dreams' included

A short drive from the heart of downtown Atlanta, is an Alpharetta, Georgia, estate that has been called "the field of dreams."

The nickname is fitting given that one of its key features is a well-manicured, full-sized baseball field, with a batting cage, in case you need to work on your hitting. If baseball's not your thing, there are other amenities designed to put a smile on your face, including two in-ground trampolines and a putting green.

Drained by all that physical activity? The sights and sounds of a soothing waterfall cascading into the property's saltwater swimming pool creates a perfect place to relax. There's also a custom-built jacuzzi surrounded by fireplaces.

Indoors, there's a 10-seat movie theater, a home spa and gym, and a wine cellar for storing and sipping vino.

The 10,474-square-foot mansion, which is listed at $3.59 million, includes five bedrooms and six full-sized bathrooms.

Want a personal tour? Of course you do! Watch the video. To read the property's full listing, click here.

Most expensive house (we could get into): Greenwich Village

Posted By: Jamie Corsi

At $50 million, the cost of this spa-like palace may take your breath away, but remember that the air in this place is super-purified.

This penthouse stunner in Manhattan's Greenwich Village neighborhood makes sure its owners are healthy as well as wealthy. Marketed as "wellness real estate," this duplex is in a building that features not only high-end finishes, but perks aimed at boosting one's health like vitamin C-infused showers, purified water, posture-support flooring and circadian lighting.

The purchase of this megahome also grants you access to sleep, stress management and nutrition programs through the Cleveland Clinic and access to a wellness concierge. And you'll want to get to know your neighbors—health guru Deepak Chopra and actor Leonardo DiCaprio have purchased apartments in the building.


And the duplex looks good too. A hand-crafted metal staircase joins its two stories of living space with 2,200 feet of outdoor space. There are four bedrooms, 4½ bathrooms and more than 7,600 square feet of interior space.

The chef's kitchen includes a herbarium, while the master suite features a whirlpool with chromatherapy, which, according to the building's website "utilizes colored light to harmonize with the body's natural energy meridians."
