Each week Fox News picks its Top 3 over-the-top luxury listings from Mansion Global.

This week we have Gwyneth Paltrow’s penthouse, Jerry Bruckheimer’s modern Los Angeles mansion and a historic D.C. carriage house which once belonged to inventor Alexander Graham Bell.

Superstar pair Gwyneth Paltrow and ex-husband Chris Martin are in the process of consciously uncoupling from their TriBeCa penthouse. They’ve put the tony property on the market for just shy of $10 million.

The spacious home in one of Manhattan’s most coveted neighborhoods includes 3,892 square feet of living space with three bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms.

The home was designed by Roman and Williams and features 11-foot-ceilings, painted white floors, French doors, an impressive 500-square-foot decked terrace and even a quirky sofa swing.

In an effort to showcase the eclectic home, Paltrow featured the property on her lifestyle blog Goop (http://goop.com/home-tour-gps-nyc-apartment/), alongside $600 white button down shirts and $700 heels.


The apartment is in the chic River Lofts development, which was designed by architect Tony Ingrao. The building includes a doorman, a gym and direct elevator access to the garage for celebrity-level privacy.

If you’re looking for something a little bolder, look no further than movie producer Jerry Bruckheimer’s modern Los Angeles mansion.

The main house has seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a high-ceilinged glass-enclosed living room, formal dining, a library, a media room and a gym.

The master suite has its own wing with a private garden.

There is also a studio guesthouse with cooking facilities overlooking a pool.

The gated steel, glass and wood pavilion house was built in 1965 and is set on three-quarters of an acre of tree-filled land.

It can all be yours for $11.9 million.

And finally we have a celebrity home from another era.

A historic carriage house in Georgetown, Washington D.C., which was once owned by the great American inventor, Alexander Graham Bell, has just hit the market.

The cottage is configured with three bedrooms, and two-and-a-half bathrooms. The master suite opens up to a well manicured backyard. The living room features a quaint historic fireplace.

Bell used the carriage house while he fought for patents for his inventions, most famously telephones. He worked in his lab across the street, which has since been renamed the Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.

The 2,224-square-foot home is currently listed at $2.295 million.
