A penthouse is the top floor of a luxury residential building, and it can also be a commercial space. If you are the type of person who loves luxury, then you may want to invest in this type of space. Unlike a regular unit or apartment, the ceiling is much higher in a penthouse. It may also have a different layout, luxury amenities (including a gymnasium and/or swimming pool) and even a private elevator.
There are some distinct features of a penthouse. They have more living space than the other units in that same building. Their ceilings are much higher. Penthouses often have direct elevator access, so you won’t have to walk throughout the building to get to your apartment or condo.
Penthouses also normally have spacious living rooms and dining rooms, and they are well designed. They generally have fully equipped appliances in the kitchen and a built-in dining area.
A penthouse apartment can also vary in size and design. Some buildings feature penthouses that are three to four bedroom apartments, while others may be larger or smaller.
There are several reasons you might consider purchasing or leasing a penthouse. First, they usually have great views, nice natural lighting and private outside space.
Second, penthouses are often quieter than apartment units or condos. This is because they are further from the noise street level. Nor do they have people and pets making noise in the unit above you.
A third benefit to investing in a penthouse is the ease of hosting parties, meeting with clients and entertaining guests. The space is large enough to bring the party to you, rather than having to go out. Not to mention your property will give you a level of class that most people don't have.
Living in a penthouse is a luxury few investors or tenants attain. However, the experience is well worth it if you enjoy great views, host often or want a property that will retain value. If this sounds like you, consider purchasing a penthouse.
