Location:Bondi penthouse in Sydney, Australia
Price: $9,000,000
Size: 2,300 square feet
Key selling points: Bondi is the Aboriginal word for "noise of water breaking over rocks," which we bet sounds a helluva lot better coming in from your floor-to-ceiling frameless glass windows with 180-degree views of the beach below. Gaze out over the masses from a private, wraparound sunning deck that sits just off the sleek wood-and-marble kitchen complete with top-of-the-line Miele appliances.
