Even if you’re not in the market for a new house — or, if the houses you like aren’t exactly in your budget — seeing what’s available can trigger inspiration and motivation.

These are the properties that would have definitely been featured on “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” some 25 years ago. But today? You don’t have to be rich or famous to take a peek.

Here’s a look at the some of the most expensive — and extravagant — available real estate in Memphis as of April 22, 2019.
