Location: High-security seaside glass stunner in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil
Price: Upon request
Size: 40,000 square feet
Key selling points: This huge, high-maintenance home requires a staff of its own to keep the smudge-free glass exterior, perfectly-pruned garden, and glassy infinity pool in tip-top shape. And good news—when your bodyguard takes a break from his post in the bullet-proof lookout, you can rely on the home's network of security cameras and automated lights, audio, video, air conditioning, and curtains to run the ship.
