Location: Noyac, N.Y.
The Skinny: The owners of this estate in the woods of Noyac, N.Y., plainly obsessed with Chinese design, commissioned artist Jian Guo Xu to make a "three-dimensional painting" out of the couple's backyard, "an architectural landscape ... that would encompass his theories of Eastern and Western visual experience." The three-acre work took four years to complete and joined a 10,000-square-foot Chinese-inspired mansion and an exacting scale replica of Beijing's Temple of Heaven on the property. That main house boasts seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms, and was completed in 2005 on land purchased for just $450K. Today, the estate, with its many upgrades, is back on the market, asking a mind-blowing $28M.
