What’s Up? This Designer Penthouse for $8 Mil!

CURIOUS ABOUT THE true view from the top? A picture-perfect, designer-appointed penthouse in Uptown has hit the market for $8 million.


The six-bedroom, six-bathroom, full-floor unit of The Astoria comes in at 9,500 square feet — every last one of which has been exquisitely decorated by Laura U Design Collective. High-end finishes a la Eggersman cabinetry, Miele applicances and Calacutta floors abound in this penthouse, which is made for entertaining.

There's a 600-bottle wine room, movie-theater room, game room — and even a room dedicated to a 3-D golf simulator, complete with Astroturf. The primary bedroom boasts a two-sided modern fireplace, coffee bar and balcony. The en-suite includes a soaking tub and mirrored television, along with a ginormous closet.

Another spa-worthy place inside this penthouse is the cedar sauna — with a Himalayan salt wall! — and steam room with built-in aromatherapy and speakers.

Outside, a private pool and turfed deck offers nearly 360-degree skyline views.

The condo is listed by Nancy Almodovar with Nan and Company Properties Christie's International Real Estate.

GLEAMING WHITE BEACHES and clear, turquoise waters in the shadows of towering cliffs dotted with centuries-old forts may come to mind when you think of the diver’s paradise of Aruba. An historic, Dutch-style downtown with tall skinny candy-colored buildings, too. All that is, of course, a major draw.
