Floating on the waters of Lake Union in the heart of Seattle, this luxurious houseboat boasts three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,000 square feet of modern interiors. Completed just last year, the ultimate waterfront home has walls of glass that recede into the walls, providing unfettered views of the water and access to a gleaming lakefront deck. Upstairs, the master bedroom is surrounded by curved glass and the bathroom has a fully glassed-in shower with rain shower head. The white oak floors are heated, while a rooftop hot tub provides the finishing touch. As a bonus, the place comes completely furnished for move-in-ready convenience.Click to reveal!
↑ A duplex occupying the top floors of a brick-and-stone building on Chicago's Gold Coast, this penthouse has both city and lake views, along with an 800-square-foot private terrace. Inside lie three bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a total of 6,000 square feet of living space, including a professional-grade kitchen with dual ovens, two fireplaces, hardwood floors, and decorative Gothic archways. The unit also comes with an outdoor kitchen, a generously sized wet bar, a billiard room, fully equipped gym, security system, and integrated music system.
↑ Topped with a huge private roof deck that comes complete with projection screen and "oversized jacuzzi," this Miami Beach penthouse sits just steps from the sand on Collins Avenue and not far from the newly-renovated Fontainebleau hotel. The four-bedroom, four-bath condo is fully furnished with what is described in the brokerbabble as "brand new furniture." Available only for terms longer than six months, the penthouse includes three basement parking spaces.
↑ Designed by noted California architect Paul Williams, this 5,400-square-foot Los Angeles home was completed in 1955. Though it shows its age, the house still has the extravagant interiors that Williams would have been proud of. Set on an elegantly landscaped one-acre lot, the four-bed, six-bath spread includes a formal dining room that seats 20, a "formal breakfast room," fully updated gourmet kitchen, two-bedroom staff apartment, and a garage.
↑ Just steps from NYC's Washington Square Park on lightly trafficked Washington Place, this gut-renovated townhouse is one of the city's most expensive rentals. Sprawling over 8,700 square feet, the five-story house has five bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a walk-out basement, huge two-story wall of glass on the rear facade, and a landscaped garden and patio. Built in 1839 and only recently renovated, the house was once home to famed composer John Philip Sousa.
