Forbes List Of The Top Five Most Expensive Real Estate Markets

Forbes just released its annual ranking of the country’s most expensive real estate markets, broken down by ZIP code. Check out theses five spectacular estates.

#1 Alpine, New Jersey’s 07620: The ritzy ZIP just a half hour from midtown Manhattan boasts a $34 million, 34,000-square-foot brick mansion on a 3.18-acre lot features eight bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, home theater billiard room, eight-car garage, and an indoor basketball court.

# 2 The Silicon Valley outpost of Atherton, California 94027. Villa Eirini, completed in 2007, is the  $45 million estate that features a “beveled edge 4-inch thick Bulgarian limestone hand-cut in Greece [that] faces the entire home”—and no fewer than six bedroom suites, but sits on just 1.5 acres of land

#3 Hamptons village of Sagaponack, N.Y. 11962, Home to Ira Rennert’s $200 million palace, Sagaponack is also the place where billionaire David Tepper just knocked down a $43.5M beach house to build an even more extravagant pad. Those sums make up only this $16.75M but this one has legit celebrity connections: it’s owned by Billy Joel and designer-to-the-stars Nate Berkus did up the interiors.

#4 San Francisco suburb Hillsborough, 94010. This luxurious estate  is a 36,000 square feet stone mansion at $48.8 million.

#5 Beverly Hills, 90210. In one of the most famous zip codes in the country, a massive $55 million marble-floored manse. Designed like a European palace,  the 27,000-square-foot manor occupies a 2.1-acre lot with a 400-foot driveway and 20-car garage.
