Hands down the most enviable feature of the 5,716-square foot penthouse at KMD Architects-designed Carlyle on Wilshire, that under-construction tower along the Wilshire Corridor, is the view from the bath tub. Who wouldn't be content just to sleep in that tub every night? Not that there is a single bad view from this two-story, 23rd floor penthouse, on the market for $12.575 million, and the most expensive of the six penthouses available. This penthouse has a crescent shape and wraps around the side of the building, and that first shot is the view from the balcony off one of the sitting rooms. More captions below the photos.
One of four luxury towers currently selling units, Elad Properties' 78-unit tower will be done in about a month and half. In terms of notable amenities for the whole building, if you are one of those people who happens to like Dale Chihuly, there's a $1 million sculpture that'll dangle in the lobby. There are so-called maids quarters on the lower floors available for purchase (these are small units, but still probably far larger than your apartment). There's a communal wine cellar, and a pool and outdoor seating area behind the building. As for potential buyers, we hear it's a mixed crowd that's expected to come: Overseas, locals, and the older, downsizing set. Apparently there's also a trend among those who live along Wilshire Boulevard to always move into newest building, so perhaps the Wilshire Boulevard hoppers will come in here. And in case you were wondering about sales, the marketing team isn't releasing sales figures.
And monthly HOAs:*
Around $2,500 for a two-bedroom, around $3,500 for a month for a three-or four and half-bedroom. And over $4,000 for penthouses.
