The year's most extraordinary homes

From a New York City penthouse with a three-story slide to a 50-acre estate with a luxury quarry-turned-pool, this year's most extraordinary residences all share one-of-a-kind features.


  • Swim in a Luxurious quarry-turned-pool

    A beautiful 50-acre estate in the heart of the Berkshires has one unique feature: a luxurious, heated, self-cleaning pool that was converted from an old limestone rock quarry.

  • Underground bunker home, Vegas-style

    Accessed by a hidden entrance in a boulder, this home was built to be a nuclear fallout shelter. Below ground, it boasts features like a backyard complete with pool, faux grass and trees.

  • Frank Sinatra's party pad

    Back in his heyday, 'Ol' Blue Eyes' leased this mid-century modern estate perched high above Los Angeles. Today, its owners rent it to Hollywood for movie and television shoots.

  • Slide through NYC's penthouse playground

    A look inside the 7,000 square-foot apartment with the tubular metal slide that winds through each of its four stories.

  • The car collector's ultimate garage

    You won't find an auto worth less than $250,000 in Barrett-Jackson CEO Craig Jackson's dream garage.
