Price: $75 million
Location: Bridgehampton, N.Y.
Palatial homes and high property prices are common in New York's favorite high-end resort area. This 25,000-square-foot house is done to the highest standards, but it's the extras that really pump up the price. Three Ponds encompasses 60 acres of rolling waterfront farmland, with a U.S. Golf Association-rated golf course (plus pro shop), 75-foot-long swimming pool, grass tennis court and orangery. The 14 gardens include a crabapple allée; vegetable garden; lily walk; and rose, hydrangea and butterfly gardens. Of course, there are also the three ponds stocked with fish. Three Ponds is listed with Susan Breitenbach at Allen M. Schneider Associates.

The triplex penthouse at the Pierre is the ne plus ultra of Manhattan apartment living?if one may prosaically call it that. The hotel's top three floors, including the original Pierre ballroom with its 23-foot-high ceilings, offer 360-degree views of New York City from windows and terraces. The home features an opulent black marble staircase, 20-foot French windows, double reception rooms and a paneled library. Should the asking price seem too steep, the property is also available in two parts, at $11 million and $59 million. The latter, incidentally, would still make it onto our list. The listing brokers are Elizabeth Lee Sample and Brenda S. Powers at Brown Harris Stevens.
Price: $65 million
Location: Malibu, Calif.
A large parcel of land is hard to come by in Malibu, a second home to movie stars and moguls. This gated compound on a private bluff encompasses seven acres of land, which only partly explains the high price. The main house has seven bedrooms, 11 baths and panoramic ocean views. The property includes a riding ring, gym, swimming pool, tennis court, guardhouse, and a private road to the beach. Jan Horn at Coldwell Banker has the listing.

Location: Bel-Air, Calif.
As one might expect with a tremendous home in one of California's priciest neighborhoods, no expense was spared with this Mediterranean-style villa. Totaling more than 34,000 square feet, the lavish home has nine bedrooms and 20 baths spread over four floors. The impressive entryway is lit by a 9-foot-tall French crystal chandelier. The formal living room is capped by a 20-foot domed ceiling painted with sky scenes that can be lit eight different ways. The huge entertainment area includes a bowling alley, game room, screening room, racquetball court, fitness room and sauna. And the acre-plus of land is landscaped with lawns, a rose garden and fruit trees. It is listed with Jade Mills at Coldwell Banker.
