Penthouse - house under the skies

Friday, 04 July 2008

penthouses Returning home, sometimes it would be so desirable to forget about all problems, to renounce all realities, to rise above the trifles of this life... And it's absolutely possible to put into life all that for those who can afford to buy a penthouse apartment. Because real "house under the skies" can be located only on the roof of a high-rise building and is a separated apartment (sometimes even a private elevator). 

The ceilings in such house are usually about 9-12 meteres high, the walls are frequently transparent, and it has a panoramic view at the city from 3 sides at minimum (4 at the best). A proper penthouse's area should be no less than 500 square meters, but it's the owner to decide how to use it - to set up a swimming pool, a tennis court or to build a winter garden.

Why did the conversation turn to correctness and incorrectness of penthouse apartments at all? The top floor apartments of high-rise buildings, apartments with two tiers on penthouse floor in elite houses, and other ones inappropriate to be called penthouse because of the area, height of the ceiling or the view from the window have been called such lately. Indeed, elite dwelling should be really elite and the demand for it always existed and will continue to exist, that is why you shouldn't mix just a nice and expensive apartment up with a true 'under the skies house'. We have to thank the USA for the penthouse apartments appearance.

Such High End class dwelling came into existence in the 20-es of the the last century. According to American standarts, only a house on a roof of a skyscraper where there is also a terrace, in which an owner can set up an observation deck, a swimming pool, a garden, or whatever else he wants, is considered to be called a penthouse apartment. In addition, you should have some kind of a levitation feeling in the 'under the skies house'. Glass walls, a lot of space in premises, and high ceilings add to the impression.

Beautiful view appears to be not the least of the factors as well, because if your windows give onto the tubing of a factory, no matter how high up the ground you are, it doesn't give you much pleasure. By the way, one of the most important advantages of penthouse apartments tends to be ecological compatibility. Of course you can go to the countryside quite often, to have a rest from smog and city dust, but you can also be above it sensu stricto. Literally, no fly, and no mosquitos' stings...

So anyway, why are the penthouse apartments that estimated? Of course you can just buy a cottage or a huge apartment on top floor and know rest. But that's not right - you can feel you are above everyone else, however egoistic it may sound, only in a luxurious under the skies apartment. Only having walked up that high, you start gretifying your self-respect. Most frequently these apartments are bought by people who had already achieved much in their lives and not just for self-affirmation, but also for self-satisfaction.

Creative people are strongly attracted by penthouse apartments, for whom large spaces and huge amount of light develop into a creativity impulse. Some set up art schools, magnificent gardens (just try to imagine flowers without smog and dust, how unusual and bright colours and fragrances will be), real outdoor gyms on the roof. It has almost become classpenthoustique to have a swimming pool at an unreal height, which is usually covered but with a sliding ceiling.

Large spaces of penthouse apartments give you an opportunity to carry out your most fancy ideas. So, a real pirate ship is being build at the client's will in one of Moscow penthouses with an area of about 500 square kilometers and height of 12 meters. But the flagship will remind more "Flying Fregate", because the view at Moscow from its huge "portholes" will be just gorgeous. But on the other hand, this idea emphasizes rebellious soul of its owner.

Of course, prices for such apartments are not low at all. For the most part, "under the skies house" costs from one to fifteen million dollars. But as they are mainly exclusive, they can cost even more. But before making up your mind to buy one, you should think if you need it for sure- it's undoubtedly great to be above the others, but not always comfortable. But living on a roof of a skyscraper, you can sence not just your advantage over people, but also their alienation, and probably even feel lonely...
