      #1 is Ocean front in southern California along a hillside…#2 is an incomplete shell of a home once valued at $40M…#4 is ok…BUT I LOVE A VIEW DUPLEX WITH A POOL HIGHRISE IN TRIBECA MAYBE UPPER EASTSIDE…POOR PEOPLE WHO DO NOT KNOW REAL ESTATE

        I love #3 as well. It’s one of my favorite penthouses in NYC. The rooftop pool is the icing on the cake! I love swimming; could you imagine swimming in that and looking out at the spectacular views! I’d be up there all summer long =P

          Totally agree. As much as I ache thinking about paying $20M for anything, a Manhattan apartment with plenty of room to entertain indoors and out, with its own private pool to boot – it just doesn’t get any better than that.

    I really don’t know why the first home is included in this poll. It looks more towards 3,000 square feet, not 6,000. I don’t understand why anyone would pay $20,000,000 for a house that if it were to be placed in any generic suburb, would be thought by many as an upper middle class tract ranch that looks similar to its neighbor.

    The second mansion seems like a good choice. It may be the best value although I doubt it has a large lot. Also, in my opinion, even though a duplex is $22,000,000, it is still a duplex. The last house is also quite nice. I wish the trees didn’t block the facade. It might look better at another angle.

      Maybe you’ve never been to Laguna Beach? Many houses on the ocean front are built on steep hillsides and cliffs. Not much to see street level except an entry way and a garage. Same thing holds true in Malibu or the Hollywood Hills for that matter. Most of this home is hidden on the down slope. This house looks to be 5 stories going down to the beach. It’s is a beige monster with generic details but it’s the Laguna Gated Ocean Front Lot that matters in this case. Although you are right it is very Generic Suburban in design and execution.

    The second home was on Selling LA this week. It was originally listed at $40,000,000 and also it is unfinished.

    The fourth one, its very picture perfect and characterful, the others either look too small for 20m or too tacky!

    #2 is winning…………… Just goes to show that a lot of the readers on this blog like size over aesthetics.

    I would definitely have to go with the Westhampton Beach home cause it is a major estate on over 10 acres, the beverly hills home sucks and the NY condo looks too cheap and contemporary and plain for my tastes and the laguna beach house looks too simple to me and it looks like really cheap quality

      Totally agree. I did not think that the views from the NY penthouse were all that great from the photos.

    I found this a difficult decision. I love an oceanfront home in a Laguna gated community because I know exactly what that is how great that would be; however, I live in NYC and this Tribeca duplex is out of this world and the pool a deal closer. The Hamptons home is nice too and of course it would be very difficult to turn down several acres on Sunset Blvd. as well. I’d go for all of them but I guess the Laguna Beach home has my vote but it’s a tough choice.

    I can’t believe #2 is winning by such a margin. You people should be ashamed! lol. Okay I think it’s ugly, but obviously a lot of people like it and that’s fine. I didn’t have time to dive into each listing, but #4 is my vote based off the above pictures and info.
