The Penthouse, an exceptional property 

If the penthouse is an apartment that takes height, this luxury accommodation also gains in value thanks to its terrace and its panoramic view.

Born in the 1920s in New York City, the penthouse has several characteristics, including its presence on the top floor of a building, with a terrace offering a panoramic view. The attraction for this type of property was born from a sense of privilege and originality. Their rarity and exceptional characteristics make them highly sought-after properties. 

In the Ile de France region, for example, there is a 267 sqm property in the Ile de la Jatte neighborhood. With its 300 sqm terrace, one can take pleasure in overlooking the island and its decor reminiscent of impressionist painters. Still in the Hauts de Seine, a property in the business district of La Défense offers the privilege of a vast terrace of more than 200 sqm equipped with a Jacuzzi and a pergola. Similarly in Paris, in a popular area of the 16th arrondissement, for its proximity to green spaces, a property offers three terraces with a 360 degree view of the city. 

The city of Lyon also has a penthouse equipped with an elevator and a swimming pool, with a breathtaking view overlooking the Alps. On the French Riviera, the village of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferret is not to be outdone with a living/dining room offering a view on the large sea view terrace.
