Perfect for pedigreed playboys, the five-bedroom home at 1677 N. Doheny Drive in Los Angeles is an endless labyrinth of luxury. Reflecting pools topped with fire features serve as an eye-catching introduction to the 12,000-square-foot, glass-walled Sunset Strip home. Dark greys and browns give the dwelling a masculine feel, and a plush cinema, walk-in wine cellar, Turkish hammam, and glass-encased three-car gallery further distinguish the multimillion-dollar bachelor pad. In the backyard, a zero-edge infinity pool with a fire feature faces an entertaining terrace with a vanishing television and summer kitchen. The home is on the market for $44 million.

Perched atop the skyline-transforming Four Seasons Private Residences Toronto, this four-bedroom penthouse offers a bird’s-eye view of the bustling city below. Inspired by the Palace of Versailles, the glass penthouse features a formal marble entrance, 12-foot ceilings, and ornate light fixtures. The master suite includes two baths and walk-in closets, and additional rooms can be transformed into a man cave, game room, or lounge. A wine cellar, library, and movie theater provide plenty of entertaining options, and four terraces overlook the city—perfect for grilling, dining, or throwing a party deserving of the space. The penthouse is listed for around $27 million.

Though the term “bachelor pad” often conjures images of swanky penthouses in the city, Villa Portofino (listed for around $3.7 million) proves that sometimes a secluded island escape is the best bet for today’s gents. Surrounded by sea, the five-bedroom villa features a stone-and-wood aesthetic inside and a curvaceous, resort-style swimming pool outside. From a state-of-the-art kitchen where modern men can whip up a flavorful feast to a glass-walled gym and spa-like sauna room, the sea villa was designed to impress. At night, sit on the southwest-facing terrace to glimpse the Balearic Islands as the sun disappears into the sea.
