Unless you are one of the lucky few living in a 10,000-square-foot townhouse, New York can feel very cramped at times. It’s natural to occasionally dream of living larger. Well, elsewhere in this massive country of ours homes are big — so big, you’ll be thankful you’re living in a studio and not paying the air-conditioning bills on these behemoths. Here is a look at the five biggest homes in America that are currently on the market.

Forbes collaborated with Trulia to find the largest mansions in the country. And of course they found that living large doesn’t come cheap: prices ranged from $8 million to $159 million.
