Real Estate Porn: Homes with Original Art—Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Banksy, and more

When even Jay-Z has to compete for a chance to buy high-priced art (he did a fist pump after snagging a Basquiat for $4.5 million at auction, he was so excited about the win), you know it's tough to get your hands on original art. Luckily, these hot properties throw in works by buzzy artists like Banksy and Jeff Koons like they're party favors. You wish you lived here.

Location: Brand new penthouse with Jeff Koons sculptures in Bal Harbour, Florida

Price: $29,500,000

Size: 19,320 square feet

Key selling points: This surf-side penthouse has a private indoor gym, sauna, massage room, thirteen-foot-tall windows that look out over the Atlantic Ocean, and 9,950 square feet of (sky-high) outdoor living space. Pricey, yes, but considering the two mirror-polished stainless steel Koons sculptures in the courtyard that you'll come home to every day, it's a total bargain.

Price: $4,950,000

Location: 5 Story Soho townhouse in Manhattan, New York

Price: $960,000/year

Size: 13,000 square feet

Key selling points: Sure, it's a rental, but it's also one of the roomiest New York residences you'll find—and possibly the coolest. It's best features include exposed brick walls, a library with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves that looks out over a heated indoor pool, a private elevator, a wet bar, a private rooftop terrace, a master suite with its own sitting room, and a wall-anchored painting by graffiti bandit Banksy.

Location: Italian villa with work by Florentine artist Antonio D'Atellis in Los Angeles, California

Price: $8,395,000

Size: 9,000 square feet

Key selling points: This Hollywood Hills home's interior may look like a classier version of The Olive Garden, but it has legit art world cred, and a few celeb connections ( B-listers like Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, Ru Paul, and Geri "Ginger Spice" Haliwell have all stayed there). Whoever says to this five-bedroom pad will have the distinction of waking up to a ceiling painted by the restorer of the Vatican. If it's good enough for the Pope...
