Unless you win Mega Millions or Powerball, or you're a trust fund kid, or a hedge fund manager, these three Connecticut homes may be out of reach.

After doing some hefty research on the internet and scouring realtor.com, zillow.com, and sothebysrealty.com, I've come up with the three most opulent, ostentatious, over-the-top homes in the greater Danbury area that most of us can only dream of. Let's start with the most lavish of the three.

    This Artreehoose (whatever that means) ultra-chic waterfront home is located at 124 Lake Drive S in New Fairfield. You read the amount correctly, $6,900,000 for a place to live, but I'm sure you could talk them down to $6.5 million. If you're looking to brag to your neighbors that you purchased a house designed by a nationally known architect for $7 million, this 5,400 square foot home is perfect for you!

    This extravagant home is located at 52 Sail Harbour Dr., in New Fairfield. Because this palatial home has 5 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, and measures in with 7,684 square feet, it deserves to have an extra letter added to class up the original word "Harbor" to read "Harbour". This is a party house with 4 garages, gourmet kitchen with granite countertops, and a 29-foot sunroom, BUT, you're going to need a golf cart to get to your dock on the lake. With over 7,000 sq. feet of space, if you have young children, you will be required to purchase a Child Retrieval Device should they go missing. The estimated mortgage is priced right at $13,925. Where do I sign up?!

    This gorgeous waterfront home in Brookfield at 7 Sunset Cove has a wrap around mahogany deck and its own private white sand beach. This awesome 5,700 square foot lodge has 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, which means you're bound to have house guests knocking on your door all summer long. Especially with the Tiki Bar right on the beach, an exercise room, and a game room with a full wet bar. This party house rings up at close to $3,000,000, with your estimated mortgage payment coming in at around $10,444/month.
