Steve Passmore / The Agency

When Americans are shopping for a home, they’re usually asking themselves many of the same questions no matter where they live. “Can we afford the mortgage if we go with the larger home?” “If we have a third kid, will this more modest option end up not being enough house?” And, “This house is perfect, but am I really ready to take on that commute?”

Unless, of course, you’re in the rarified air of the incredibly, mind-boggling rich, in which case shopping for homes takes on a whole new set of circumstances. “Does it have a place to park my yacht?” Or, “Sure, this home is astonishingly gorgeous, but is it ‘make the Prince of Monaco really jealous of me’ gorgeous?” Or even just, “Will six bedrooms be enough for when the Sheikh comes to visit or will that mean his bodyguard and his manicurist will have to share?”

Good news, members of the 0.0001%: If you’re looking for your next international crash pad, this article is for you. Here’s a closer look at some of the most beautiful homes that lots and lots and lots of money can buy. Sure, you’ll be out at least $10 million to buy one, but what’s money when you can live like this?

Heck, Triton might even swing by unannounced to take advantage of the large glass-front pool, infinity edge hot tub, outdoor movie theater with a fire pit or the private tennis court. After all, rumor has it that Triton needs to put in a lot of work on his lob shot.
