Modern Mansions aka Modern homes I'm too dirt poor to own

Want to live in a mansion? Yeah me too. Want to live in a modern mansion? Yeah, whatever, sure. Well here are 10 modern mansions that don't suck too much. And hey, one is from Seattle which goes to show, once again, that Seattle is awesome. Oh yeah, and the Storm won the WNBA championship or whatever. Is that a thing? Anywho, here are your future homes my friends:

Belvedere, CA - $28.85 Million

This property sits on 1.2 acres and 7,900 square ft of space. 5 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms and also includes a separate guest house that contains an additional 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. And if that isn't awesome enough, you also have a full view of the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco skyline and Mount Tamalpais on your 220 feet of shoreline.

Palm Beach, FL - $29,500,000

20,000 square feet. Need I say more? Now please, please tell me what the heck you do with 20,000 sq ft of living? Unless you say something in regards to the longest indoor slip-n-slide EVER, I'm not buying it. Well, it also sits on 200 ft of direct intracoastal frontage ad has 7 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms and a pool.

Chicago, IL - $2.5 Million

This may look like a little town house, but don't be fooled. This little guy contains 5,00 square ft of living space with 8 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. It also has a theater room, multiple decks and a 3 car garage.

Washington, D.C. - (No price given, and as Bob Chaffee says, "if there's no price, it's too expensive)

This puppy has 11,000 square ft of living space with 5 bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms. But buyer beware, if you move to Washington DC you might be introduced to Tariq and Michaela Sahali, and no one wants that (for those of you that don't watch RHODC, just negate that last sentence)

Austin, TX - $1.595 Million

Austin is definitely the only good part in Texas, but since all of Texas knows this, the houses are pretty pricey. Cook in your amazing glass walled, gourmet kitchen, then check out your 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in this 4,049 sq ft home. But if that is not enough space, just head outside since the freaking house sits on a 43,995 sq ft lot! If they aren't hunting on that freak of nature-sized 'yard' then I don't know what else you would do with that!

Honolulu, HI - $3.9 Million

Forget the actual house, this property sits right on the insanely gorgeous beaches of Honolulu. This house has a HUGE retractable skylight, 4 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms (so some people can double up if they want) and the house sits on a total of 5,406 sq ft. Not too shabby.

Miami, FL - $5,900,000

Located on Venetian Island (you know, that crazy island where the uber uber rich live), this home has multiple glass walls, soaring ceilings, and bay views. 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and an infinity pool juuuust to remind people, "I have so much money that i don't need a normal pool, I need an INFINITY POOL!" Also, you can show off your yacht on your personal dock and boat lift and then drunkenly yell at people on your rooftop terrace.

Lincoln, MA - $3.986

Want 12.61 manicured acres bordering 100 acres of a natural conservation (aka, you'll never have crazy neighbors cause it's the LAW), yeah me too. This place also boasts a 25 yard indoor swimming pool, a hot tub and pool house that has a direct entrance to the main home and master suite. If visitors bore you easily, send them to the game room equipped with a full wet bar and 1,500 bottle whine closet along with a 12 seat movie theater, and a rooftop terrace with a second hot tub. The main house also has 6 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and 14,000 sq ft to do whatever you want! Basically, you never have to hang out with your house guests when they are staying at your house!

Venice, CA - $1.49 Million

After everything else we have seen, this looks like your poor cousins house. Anywho, this 3 bedroom, 3 bath home in L.A. has a glass enclosed office space (which to me sounds like a fast way to cook yourself), rooftop deck and easy access to the farmers market and beach. (Yawn, where is the 12 seat theater?!)

Seattle, (Laurelhurst), WA - $7.788 Million

Yeay, Seattle! Check out this waterfront, Laurelhurst property. This house was built to party. Look at the freaking dock?! You can hitch up your boat, and you have a nice little party deck for easy access for swimming. The house has 4 bedrooms, 3 3/4 bathrooms, and a freaking ART GALLERY in the entryway. I mean, holy cow. The house is 8,080 sq ft and sits on a 10,396 sq ft lot.

Again, thanks to the folks are for showing off these sweet houses!

  1. Wow! Love the Seattle house. I can totally see myself saying, "yes, why it would be quite lovely to have you all over for some tea in my art gallery. Quite lovely indeed" in a British accent. Right! :)
