University of Miami football player-turned-trial lawyer Jim Ferraro began building this 23,000-square-foot estate on Martha's Vineyard in 2003, and his neighbours weren't too happy.
He reportedly had to pacify them at board meetings by showing them plans for the 61-room complex, which was completed in 2009. It has 14 bedrooms, 20 bathrooms, a pool, a basketball court, a tennis court, a bocci ball court, and a putting green, according to the Wall Street Journal, which also has some really cool pictures.

Former Greenberg Traurig partner Marvin Rosen lives in this upscale pre-war coop, the Beresford, at 211 Central Park West.

Marton originally bought the apartment in the mid-'90s with her second husband, fellow reporter Peter Jennings, according to the Observer.
Rosen and his wife Janet snagged the four-bedroom apartment for the 'bargain price' of $11 million, according to the New York Observer.
