Woah. Those of you in the market for a penthouse in the $1,000 per square-foot range with expansive outdoor space, your dream home just hit the market. Unit 10C at the Western Union Building (Garces Trading Company, anyone?) is a custom-designed pad by none-other-than Cecil Baker. Everything about this place is big-time, thanks in large part to the open floor plan which takes advantage of the killer views of damn near the entire city.

Anyway, gawk all you want at the modern kitchen or the master suite with spa-like bath (with heated marble floors) and gigantic walk-in closet, we’re here to hang out on the terrace! Seriously, it looks like a shared space at a swanky Center City apartment building, rather than your personal outdoor area. The listing is right, it does rival a yard often found in the ‘burbs, minus the grass and stuff. The best part about all of those interior views is that you just have to swing open one of the sets of doors to bring the outside in. This place is tailor-made for Baby Boomers looking to “downsize” from their gigantic spreads on the Mainline.

Two-car parking is also included in the deal, which in Washington Square West is no small feat.

Beds: 3
Baths: 2
Square Feet: 1,920
Price: $1,950,000
Additional Info: HOA fees are $1,200 per month
