Whether or not you’re a captain of industry, few pleasures in life are as uncomplicated as clicking through impossibly luxe (and ridiculously expensive) real estate listings.
It may not officially be on the market, but we can’t help but fantasize about life in financier Gary Winnick’s $225 million Bel Air compound, which—if the whopping asking price is actually realized—will become the most expensive estate in the United States (plus, in addition to bragging rights, it comes with a private jogging course around the property).
Speaking of jogging, a millionaire could do laps to their heart’s content in this sprawling $28 million Aspen ranch, which comes with a 13,000 square foot fitness facility complete with regulation NBA basketball court and an indoor track.
