Real Estate Porn: A $58 Million Beverly Hills Mansion and a South Carolina Plantation
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 wondering how much of our apartment would fit inside the massive custom closet in this $58 million Beverly Hills mansion, which also boasts a 60-foot infinity pool, rooftop garden, and “grand ballroom.”
We’re also dusting off our skis for this $12.9 million Telluride ski-in, ski-out estate, which is located mere steps from the slopes.
And because summer can’t come soon enough, we’re fantasizing about warmer days in these two beachfront mansions: a shingled $9.4 million Montauk estate with an outdoor entertaining area, and this glamorous $22 million Malibu estate (complete with oceanfront jacuzzi and on-site movie theater).
Which new listings have you drooling this week? Tell us in the comments below!

BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA: There's a lot to love about this 48,000 square foot mega-mansion in Beverly Hills: a 60-foot infinity pool, alfresco dining area, 5,000 bottle wine cellar, and massive rooftop garden. But if we could choose just one feature to have in our own home, it would definitely be this outrageously huge closet (which could probably fit our entire apartment). $58,000,000 at Joyce Rey.

MALIBU, CALIFORNIA: This ultra-luxe Malibu estate is situated right on the sand, and features a zen garden, oceanfront "spa," and a movie viewing room. Of course, you'll have to adjust to the roar of Pacific Coast Highway. $22,000,000 at Joyce Rey.

MONTAUK, NEW YORK: Speaking of beach-front living, this Montauk mansion comes with 1.5 acres of oceanfront luxury. The integrated design features aspects of the original shingled beachhouse, but with modern upgrades like a football-field size lawn and an outdoor bar. $9,400,000 at Corcoran.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: This 6,000 square foot Bel-Air mansion bills itself as a "villa," and boasts sweeping views of the nearby Bel-Air Country club where, as The Real Estalker points out, gentleman are not allowed to wear "jeans or denims of any color...football jerseys, or any type of shirt with printed phrases." Well, that's a relief. $7,998,000 at Coldwell Banker, via the Real Estalker.

TELLURIDE, COLORADO: Situated mere steps from the nearest ski trail, this Telluride ranch boasts park-like grounds and dramatic views of the surrounding mountains.
