Curious what luxury living looks like near you? Or how many millions it costs? Check out our gallery, showing the most expensive home in every state in the nation.

Zillow pulled the priciest single-family homes on its website — no working ranches or empty parcels — for an apples-to-apples comparison across the country. (Note that all of these homes are publicly listed for anyone wanting a virtual tour. We excluded "pocket-listed" high-end homes that aren’t on the Multiple Listing Service and are shown by appointment only.)

Our slideshow of states is arranged alphabetically, but if we'd arranged them by price, here are the states that would have come out on top:
