With a bird's-eye view of Baltimore's Inner Harbor and beyond, penthouse 1B is located on levels 24 and 25 of the high-rise condominium at 100 Harborview Drive. This two-story residence (one of only two in the building) is on the market for $1.7 million.
"The views are breathtaking, with walls of windows on its north and south sides," said listing agent and realtor Bill Ganz of Ganz Exclusive Real Estate. "This is a palace in the sky."
The four-bedroom, 4 1/2-bath unit does have a palatial feel, with marble flooring in the living room, dining room and family room. The flooring continues in the foyer, which features a winding, decorative metal staircase to the second level. There, an open, wrap-around hallway looks down at the family room and out to city and water vistas that surround the 27-story building.
The four carpeted bedrooms have stellar views, as well.
The kitchen, with ceramic tiling, gleams with its stainless-steel appliances, which include a Sub-Zero refrigerator, a Dacor range, a Miele dishwasher, a metal-topped breakfast bar and a butler's pantry with wine storage.
Other features include built-in bookcases, double vanities, two gas fireplaces, granite countertops, recessed lighting, 9-foot ceilings, a private elevator, and two exterior balconies. The unit also comes with parking spaces and two storage lockers.
Plus there are the amenities extended to all 100 Harborview Drive residents. They include a 24-hour concierge and valet service, an indoor and outdoor pool, two resident lounges, a fitness center, a conference room and a business center.
"For the buyer who has the money to own the best that Baltimore has to offer, this [penthouse] is probably the best value in town," said Ganz. "For what you're paying, you can't get these views anywhere!"
