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 dreaming about taste-testing our own Pinot Noir from a $14 million vineyard in Agua Dolce, California, and planning an exclusive movie screening in the ten-seat movie theater attached to this $39 million Mecox Bay mansion.
If, on the other hand, you’re looking for a slice of the simple life, we recommend the elegant Bridelwood Farm, which—for a cool $16.9 million—offers 13 barns and 6,000-square-feet of pseudo-rural luxury.
What listings have you drooling this week? Tell us in the comments below!
