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 sipping our favorite vintage in the “wine-tasting room” of this sexy Beverly Hills pad before making our way to an opening inside the private art gallery of this contemporary Elk, California estate.
Later, we’ll kick up our heels on the private beach attached to this Florida compound on Casey Key—after all, traversing 11,000 square feet of private gardens, tennis courts, and “seaside sculpture gardens” can really wear a girl out.
Which new listings have you drooling this week? Tell us in the comments below!

OYSTER HARBORS, MASSACHUSETTS: Occasionally our passion for luxe finishings and ritzy amenities gives way to our longing for rustic shingles, white picket fences, and row boats.
