Swanky 'Penthouse 1' in Manhattan Has a Terrace to Die For (House of the Day)




Cheers to @tollbrothersinc for submitting this week's #housepornthurs winner, a $20 million New York City penthouse.

The mouth-watering 4,346-square-foot home is the last unit available in The Touraine, a swanky apartment building on Manhattan's Upper East Side that is supposed to reach completion in the spring of 2013. The last of 22 boutique units, "Penthouse 1" offers five bedrooms and three bathrooms decked out in ritzy decor and fixtures.

The home's gourmet kitchen features "custom millwork cabinetry, Italian Calacatta marble countertops, Gaggenau appliances and Sub-Zero refrigerators."

There's also an expansive rooftop terrace with top-notch landscaping and furnishing. Against the backdrop of New York's sparkling skyline, loungers can warm up in front of the open-air fireplace and revel in the feeling of having reached Master of the Universe status. (We know we would.)

Other amenities include 24-hour concierge service, wine lockers, a top-of-the-line gym and a library.

Toll Brothers City Living has the listing.
