10 Start slideshow

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.
This week, we’re coveting a private mansion in Paris  that features an inner courtyard and eight bedrooms (more than enough room to store all of the Chanel haute couture that we could possibly buy).
Another major listing that has us in a tizzy is a $17 million NYC penthouse that features a conservatory, solarium, and terrace, and commanding view of Central Park. Where do we sign on the dotted line? It sure beats any Manhattan apartment that we’ve ever stepped foot inside of.
Which new listings have you drooling this week? Tell us in the comments below!
