New York, USA If Tony Stark were real, and actually slept, he'd crash here when he overnighted in Manhattan. This 3,600-square foot 3-bedroom overlooks the Hudson River and is loaded with amenities. For one, the top floor opens up at the push of a button to reveal a staircase down to the bedrooms and spa-like bathroom. There are also two elevators: one for you, and one for your car.

Beirut, Lebanon This sprawling triplex is a triple threat, with insane views of the city, a floor-to-ceiling library (with an entire section accessible via catwalk!) and a rooftop pool terrace.

Odéon Tower Sky Penthouse
Monaco Priced at $387 million, this five-story 35,000-square foot palace in the sky is officially the world's most expensive penthouse. And whatever billionaire eventually snatches it up will get to enjoy impossibly amazing 360-degree views, extravagant party-ready rooms, and its crown jewel: an enormous outdoor deck with a waterslide-accessible circular infinity pool. Anyone have, like, $386,999,000 we can borrow? [See more...]

It's filled with doors disguised as ornate walls that lead to a series of rooms where trippy colors and patterns cover nearly every surface. Eventually, though, you find your way to its two most incredible spaces: the psychedelic mirror-filled bathroom, and 5 star hotel-worthy wood-soaked wine bar. [See more...]
New York, USA A quick 89 floors up, this opulent and modern full-floor spread will be the highest residential property in the Western Hemisphere once the shadow-casting monolithic building it caps is complete. The 8,255-square foot, 6-bed 7.5-bath crib is currently listed for $82.5 million, which, despite being 452 times the median American home price, seems oddly justified considering the epic views you'd be enjoying from its monster 10-foot windows.
