It’s Free to Look Hamptons: 36 Briar Patch Road, East Hampton Village

Situated atop a stone shelf atop a grassy hill, this mansion is the Hamptons equivalent of the Empire State Building. For a mere $14.5 million, you can own both the vantage point and the view.

Even if you don't get a chance to visit all of this property's 17 acres of meadows and wild flowers, you'll at least be able to look at them. But be careful. The Douglas Elliman listing advertises "commanding views," which to us sounds a little dangerous. Don't forget that it usually takes the human body a couple of days to adjust to altitude.

If height isn't your thing, well, you'll have to close your eyes. The house at 36 Briar Patch Road is designed for both indoor and outdoor perching. In addition to a smattering of indoor balconies, the house features an enormous hole in the floor, with a direct view to the level below. The faint of heart can take refuge on the bottom level, which features wine, media and groundedness. — William Alden
