The Lure Of Penthouses

· Thinking of Selling


What Are They

The rapidly increasing net worth and aspirations of individuals desiring an affluent lifestyle have played major roles in the mushrooming of high-class homes in the sky. Unlike apartments that might be too compact or landed homes that might be too difficult to maintain, penthouses are a good option for the well-heeled who want the space of landed houses but not the hassle of maintaining it. Typically located on the top floors of condominium buildings with prestigious addresses and fitted with luxurious top-of-the-line finishing, penthouses are sexy and come with more floor space and loftier ceilings. These unique abodes usually offer panoramic, breathtaking views of the city skyline. In recent times, floor-to-ceiling windows have become a common feature, allowing one to enjoy more natural light and stunning views. These advantages can be enhanced with good interior design and appropriate embellishments.

Unique to most penthouses are double-volume ceilings that give the space a roomier feel. While most of us would agree that additional light and height are a form of luxury, not every penthouse owner knows how to take advantage of these characteristics. For example, a nice chandelier or pendant light draws the eye to a double-volume void.

Apart from aesthetics, these spaces give the owner the flexibility to create a mezzanine or a loft deck with tall book shelves that allow for more storage.

A private roof terrace offers a fantastic opportunity to create a unique outdoor space. Unlike those on the ground level, roof terraces need to feature sturdy furniture/planters, given the increased wind speed at higher altitudes.

All in, investing in a luxurious penthouse can prove to be a most incredible and rewarding experience.
