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 eyeing the house that Seinfeld built—that is, Larry David’s massive Pacific Palisades mansion—and wondering if writing sessions inside his spectacular vaulted-ceiling barn might inspire our own hit sitcom.

We’re also packing our suitcase with flannel shirts and hiking boots for a sojourn at this Winchester, Wisconsin lodge, which is situated on its own private island inside a 2,900 acre wilderness reserve. Don’t worry, millionaire outdoors-folk: it comes with a separate hunting cabin.

Which new listings have you drooling this week? Tell us in the comments below!
