The Penthouse
A penthouse is a luxury apartment usually found on the top floor of an apartment building. These kind of properties are usually found in crowded, urban cities where there is no space for luxury homes on separate plots, so they are built at the top of residential buildings. These types of homes are designed to overlook the beautiful city around them. A penthouse might not be as private as other property types but comes with an amazing view and sometimes benefits such as lobby services or helipads. For what you’re getting, it does come with a heavy price tag.
