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 planning a party that would make MTV (circa 1994) proud at this La Hambra Heights mansion, which comes with all the necessary party-time amenities: a basement casino, moody stone grotto, and a fountain in the swimming pool.
We’re also pondering where Jillian Michaels has been getting her sweat on for all these years if her LA pad—which comes with steam showers and a wired-in sound system—doesn’t come with its own gym.
And with summer right around the corner, we’re plotting a casual weekend escape to Courtney Sale Ross’s massive East Hampton compound, which she heaved on the market this week for a whopping $75,000,000.
Which new listings have you drooling this week? Tell us in the comments below!
