This two-bedroom penthouse apartment–one of just 10 units in 101 Walnut Condominiums–is the only one with two stories, and much more thrilling, the only one with a private pool. While the rest of the 3,500-square-foot unit is remarkable in various ways, the sleek pool is undoubtedly its highlight. From the master suite, the resident can slide open a wall of glass to get to the heated pool, which is on a 1,800-square-foot terrace with an outdoor kitchen. There’s a flat-screen TV that’s visible from the pool–but then, so is the skyline. Homeland or hometown? Up to you.
The views are almost equally incredible from inside thanks to glass walls that allow a river-to-buildingtop vision of the cityscape. With so much to see outside, the interior has been kept deliberately simple. That aesthetic is also for sale, in a sense: The Roche Bobois furnishings, Design Within Reach lighting and the Holly Hunt rug can also be part of the deal.
As it is, the unit comes with a Phillip Jeffries designer wall covering; a Walker Zanger European backsplash and cascading Caesarstone island in the kitchen; Porcelonsa bath fixtures; and custom-made wood-grain flooring.
The unit has been on and off the market. Something this unique won’t be (and hasn’t been) a fast sale. It’s lovely to look at, though, because the photos are so beautiful.
The current asking price is $3,450,000.
