Location: New York, N.Y.
Price: $100,000 per month
The Skinny: We don’t usually feature rentals on the House of the Day, but this majorly expensive, utterly enormous townhouse rental in New York City’s trendy SoHo neighborhood fits the bill nicely, especially considering the rent totals $1.2 million per year. We’ve featured plenty of houses on these pages that one could purchase for such a sum, but those didn’t include a deep indoor swimming pool with viewing portals, a huge living room with 29-foot ceilings, or 13,000-square-feet in one of Manhattan’s most expensive neighborhoods. Oddly for all that space, there are only three bedrooms and three baths, but this was never about practicality, now was it? At least you’ll be living on the set of the Beyonce music video "Halo," filmed here in 2008.
