With thanks to my ex-colleague, Bree at The Blog Stylist for alerting me to Julia at Hooked on Houses, who, in turn, led me to Sotheby's International Realty. Yikes, who needs the cinema for escapism - look no further than Sotheby's. And just a hint, for added envy/enjoyment, view the listed properties starting from the highest price. As in, oh say, $78 MILLION US DOLLARS! Alternatively, bag "A Single Man" actress, Julianne Moore's West Village Townhouse (below) for a cool $11,995,000. Click to buy.
