The term home is relative, since most of the ones we cover here offer all the luxury of kings and thus they are closer to the 5-star resorts of palaces. But owning such a home isn’t cheap and four of the ten homes required over 100 million dollars for the benefits.

10. Undisclosed address, East Hampton, NY, $75 million

Located on the most prestigious private lane in East Hampton, this house has the ocean and a pond next to it, with the main house spreading over 7500 square feet, a barn, heated pool and a three bedroom guesthouse.

2. 795 Fifth Avenue Phe & Phw, New York, $125 million

This penthouse occupies the entire 41st, 42nd and 43rd floors of the Pierre Hotel and offers 16 bedrooms, although the hotel wants a down payment for it which might be a problem when you look at the sum.

1. Undisclosed address in Greenwich, CT, $140 million
