Most of what I know about real estate is local: home values in The Woodlands and Houston, information about neighborhoods and school districts, mortgage rates, those kinds of things. But sometimes I see something about houses around the country that I just find fascinating.

Recently, the folks at Curbed published a list of the most expensive homes in America.

The most and least expensive homes on the list are actually on the same street - there’s a $120 million difference between them!

Some of the amenities include: private ocean access, a life size chess set, a view of the Statue of Liberty, bowling alleys, basketball courts, helicopter landing pads, private spas, makeup refrigerators, movie theatres, even season tickets to the Brooklyn Nets!
