  • Because two worlds are never enough, this home gives you "The Best of All Worlds," according to the Sotheby's listing. And that's referring to something very specific.

    For a mere $7.5 million, the house offers a lot of variety. It combines "vernacular" with "modern" architecture, it includes "loft-like public rooms" and "five bedrooms," it offers both a gym and an office, and it boasts a "screened porch" where activity options span from "outdoor entertaining" to "quiet reflection." But the real "worlds" are downstairs—in the 2,000-bottle "wine tasting" room.

    Stock that cellar with 2,000 unique bottles, and you'll have 2,000 worlds to choose from. Just remember that it's a "tasting" room, and that 2,000 bottles is a lot of bottles. — William Alden
