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 trying to find the perfect yacht to pair with the deep-water yacht mooring attached to this $32 million Greenwich mansion, which was recently restored to its former glory by Bob Weinstein (brother to Hollywood mogul, Harvey).
We’re also coveting the exposed wood beams and floor to ceiling windows in Ricki Lake’s Brentwood estate, which she originally scooped up from Courtney Cox.
Which new listings have you drooling this week? Tell us in the comments below!

AUSTIN, TEXAS: File under former sports stars "flipping out": Lance Armstrong scooped up this modern Austin pad just six weeks ago, but already swapped the estate—which features a winding, geometric pool and over 15,000 square feet of living space—to racing driver Bret Curtis. Armstrong forked over $4.34 million for the property, but the cash Curtis coughed up (presumably more than Armstrong paid) remains undisclosed.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Chelsea Handler and former NBC beau, Ted Harbert, split this swanky Marina del Ray pad before splitting up themselves. Now, the power TV duo are unloading the place, which features sweeping ocean views, outdoor dining and a rooftop "sky lounge." $16,000 per month at Condos Etc.

GOULDSBORO, MAINE: Owning your own American island may be easier than it seems. This forested isle off the coast of Maine may not have electricity, but makes up for it with private beaches, docks, and a postcard perfect three-bedroom stone cottage. $1,350,000 at Christies.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: With lean lines, glass walls and warm wood accents, the Linn Residence—built in 1961 by Richard Neutra—would make a terrific addition to any collector's portfolio. Inside, an airy living room, valley views and a minimally appointed pool area still feel fresh. $2,795,000 at Realtor.com.

MIAMI, FLORIDA: If walls could talk. Pharrell's three-story Miami penthouse—which hit the market earlier this week—has surely hosted its fair share of star-studded (and champagne-addled) evenings, what with its 360 degree ocean views, seven parking spaces, and even a cupola.  $10,900,000 at Miami Condo Investments.
