This incredible multi-storey penthouse in Monaco may be the world’s most expensive property per square meter. The price is estimated to go as high as $380 million dollars when it is released onto the market next year. I think the most amazing thing about it is the private water slide that leads directly into the infinity pool.
If you’re rich, you can have a pretty garden on the top of the building, very convenient.
As an apartment dweller myself, I like this idea very much, but to have a penthouse with such a rooftop, big bucks are needed. But hey, I am a dreamer ;)
Yes, this is not a mistake, this triplex penthouse apartment located in a clock tower near the Brooklyn Bridge and the Port of New York really costs some modest $25 million.
As it is a penthouse in a tower clock, each facade has a working clock in a 14-foot-high round window. This means you always know what time it is, unless you forget to read the time backwards...
And as it is a triplex, there are 3 floors and a very large area. The first floor which is the main floor is 3000 square feet - it is composed of an open living room, a dining room and a kitchen with a 16-foot ceiling.
At the center of the space, there is a glass-walled elevator surrounded by a staircase that leads to 2 other smaller floors. The 2nd floor is 2300 square feet and consists of 3 bedrooms. Finally, the last floor is "only" 988 square feet - it is an open loft with a 15-foot ceiling.
Another interesting fact, ‘the price is more than double the highest price known to have been paid for a home in Brooklyn.’ Its creator, David Walentas, said that ‘the ClockTower apartment was not timed to the fluctuations in the real estate market, because the apartment was a one-of-a-kind space that would appeal only to a one-of-a-kind buyer...’ The flat offers of course a beautiful view over the city, the port, the bridges and the East River.
