Mansion Global | View from the Top: Five Penthouses with Endless Vistas
These days, penthouses are easy to find — any unit that happens to sit on the top floor of a shiny, new condominium will bear the name. But without a jaw-dropping view, many are just fancy apartments in the sky. A true penthouse rises above all others, treating its owner to exclusive vistas of the surrounding area.
Whether you prefer the city lights from a modern high-rise or waves crashing below a beachfront retreat, a stunning view can be a major selling point.
Here’s a look at five multimillion dollar views from penthouses around the world.
PRICE: $68.95 million

The apartment comes with a private patio with unobstructed views of Central Park. Residents will have access to all of the hotel’s amenities, including housekeeping, valet and 24-hour room service.

What could be more quintessentially Parisian than a view of the Eiffel Tower from your living room? The roughly 1,450-square-foot, newly renovated apartment sits on the top floor of an early 20th-century building in the 7th arrondissement. The renovating architect replaced part of the roof above the living room with a glass panel. The base of the Eiffel Tower is visible from a window; the rest of the landmark can be seen through the sloping roof.
