A mix of celebrity and private luxury single-family (if you can call the White House single-family) residences made up the top 10 most-viewed homes on Zillow in 2011. Half of the top 10 are found in a cluster around New York City, and the other five range
from Washington, D.C., to Los Angeles.

Topping the list, at a Zillow-estimated $467,400 listing price, the lowest-priced home in the top 10 list is the notorious "Jersey Shore" house, where MTV filmed the first season of the reality TV phenomenon. People must have been curious where
"
Snooki" and "The Situation" (nicknames for a couple of the show’s stars) first entered
public life.

The White House is No. 8 on the list, but is by far the most expensive, with a Zillow-estimated $261.76 million value. The Woolworth’s retail magnate Frank Woolworth built
a French Gothic-styled Upper East Side townhouse, ranking No. 3 on the list, for his daughter Helena, which is going for a mind-boggling $90 million.

An art gallery resides in a beautifully landscaped, sleek and ultramodern Santa Barbara, Calif., home, No. 4 on the list, priced at just under $20 million. No. 6 is the gaudy and notorious Champ d’Or Estate in Hickory Creek, Texas, which was modeled on a chateau just outside Paris (in France — not Paris, Texas).

Apparently, it’s been on the market since 2003 and can’t sell, which could be because of its $58 million list price, or its overgilded aura — or both.

Rap mogul Fifty Cent’s sprawling 50,000-square-foot Connecticut mansion and its 21 bedrooms makes the list at No. 5, and is priced just under $10 million — which, on this list, may seem like a comparative bargain.
