But this apartment in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, takes it up a notch. For a whopping $25,000/month, you get to stay in The Parisian Home of Rittenhouse Square. The landlord’s description of the home is quite enticing, and he calls it a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The landlord promises that you can, “gaze over dramatic park views while the gleaming city skyline rises above the treetops and take in meticulously renovated interiors that match the historic Beaux Arts building in both grandeur and scope,” and that “you’ll discover elevated opulence wrought with the highest level of quality and bespoke craftsmanship.” It sounds like something from a romantic comedy.

We’ll have to keep wishing these Zillow landlords lower the price just a little bit, though it doesn’t seem likely (Zillow).
