Penthouse in Monaco : between luxury apartment and dream villa

Buying an apartment in Monaco suggests that choice is limited and that there are only common apartments for sale. However, a wide choice of different types of apartments is available and our real estate agency in Monaco proposes a selection of properties of all styles: Bourgeois, modern or Belle Epoque apartments, Monte-Carlo Sotheby's International Realty offers today to discover an atypical and emblematic type of apartment in city centers: the Penthouse.


An atypical property.

On the top floors of Monegasque buildings, you can find rare and exceptional properties. The Penthouse is the ideal property combining charm and originality. One of the main attractions for this type of apartment is of course the absence of housing above, favoring comfort and calm. However, this is not the only interesting aspect in the acquisition of a Penthouse in the Principality. These properties often result from the connection between several lots and give the impression of overhanging Monaco. With large terraces or more comfortable loggias than common apartments, the Penthouse offers very pleasant outdoor spaces for everyday life or for evenings with friends. It is an ideal compromise between the apartment and its ease of maintenance and the villa offering beautiful outdoor spaces.

Penthouses are often built on 2 levels. These are properties resulting from the reunification of the last 2 floors of the building or from the connection between the residential floor and the roof terrace; in this second case, the apartment benefits from the exclusive use of the "roof top" and the view which belongs to it. These Duplex are highly sought after for their uniqueness, but also for their beautiful living areas.

The different types of Penthouses.

Our prestigious real estate agency has the chance to be one of the leaders on the Monaco real estate market and therefore, regularly offers Penthouses for sale or for rent..

The bourgeois Penthouses are similar to Paris’ Haussmann type apartments and offer beautiful open plans with high ceilings, around 2.90m. These charming apartments are located in typical residences, but still offer the comfort expected by Monegasque customers: daytime concierge service, lifts... These buildings are typical of the South of France and the Principality from the beginning of the 20th century. Most of the time, they are residences of less than 8 floors with low maintenance costs. This is another attraction of these old-style residences that you can find in different areas, most of the time in The Condamine/Port Hercule where many events are held such as the Grand Prix de Formule 1, in the Jardin Exotique or in Saint Roman..

Some Penthouses are located on top of modern buildings. You will find them in Fontvieille or in the highly sought-after Carré d’Or. These residences with concierge and sometimes 24/7 security service, are larger buildings. Some of them offer luxury services, such as swimming pool in the building, fitted fitness room... This is the case for some apartments that our agency real estate in Monaco is happy to propose to its international clientele. Most of the time, these penthouses are Duplexes, and the connection with the roof terrace was made during the construction of the building. Thus, these properties are family apartments with 3 or more bedrooms and benefit from the exclusive use of this hanging garden that represent the roof top area. Some are arranged as luxuriant gardens, others like a contemporary terrace… In some rare cases, you can find a Jacuzzi or a private swimming pool there…
