Converted Chapel on the Upper West Side
As promised, more of Manhattan's best. There is no shortage of places I could show you there but I can only look at Manhattan real estate in short bursts before I become quite overwhelmed. I can cope with Australian prestige property, perhaps I'm even immune to it but it's nice to know I can still be overwhelmed by a beautiful home and this next listing is one such home. USD$10,000,000 will get it for you. And you know what? Considering what that gets you, I don't find the price too bad and especially when I consider what the same amount of money will get you in Sydney. A landmark place like this in a comparable location in Sydney would be a hell of a lot more than ten million.

Sorry kids, no address but if you're in the area believe me, you will NOT be able to miss this one. Maybe it's not to everyone's taste but it would have to be among the most ridiculously stunning properties I've ever clapped eyes on. It is just utterly and completely breathtaking. There are loads of pictures to get through so I suggest you settle back with a nice cup of tea/coffee/vodka and enjoy.

It's almost more amazing than I can process.
I know it's not modern but it is beautiful.
