The World’s Most Expensive Penthouse

At the very top of the Odeon Tower – the tallest, most striking building in Monaco and the second tallest on Europe’s Mediterranean Coast – is a penthouse apartment which can only be accurately described as a 31,500ft2 elevated palace. Nothing quite like it exists elsewhere.Set over floors 45 to 49 of the glass-façadeddouble-skyscraper, against the backdrop of the azure sea and divine cityscape views, the luxurious residence is on the market for an estimated USD 387 million. Such a price tag would place the property as the most expensive penthouse in the world. However, the more you learn about this property, the more you are convinced of its worth.

Opening the Doors to Luxury

The interior of the Odeon Tower’s penthouse is nothing short of a luxury interior designer’s dream. Its 5 bedrooms and equally sensuous, stunning bathrooms look like they belong in the grandest and most exclusive hotel you could conjure up in your wildest dreams. Only the finest materials are used in the decoration of the property.

A Scenic Setting

Each floor of the property is adorned in lavish decoration, yet it is outside – atop of the Principality’s largest skyscraper – that one appreciates the uniqueness of the Odeon Tower’s penthouse. Its very own spherical infinity pool can be entered in extravagant style from a built-in slide, which descends a full story, directly from adance floor above. From here, the view extends across 360°, across the Principality, the Mediterranean Sea, and the surrounding mountains. It is true that the parties held at this apartment would be out of this world, but this is a home for living.

Indulgent Amenities at the Odeon Tower
