Discovering decadence in Los Angeles is easy enough with a sufficient bankroll. And that's just what you'll need to stay in the biggest, most expensive penthouse apartment in the iconic SoCal city's downtown area.
Conjured by world-renowned designer Robert Bailey, the sprawling, 18,000 square-foot LEVEL Furnished Living penthouse boasts a staggering 10,000 square feet of modern indoor living space finished with top-end materials including limestone, marble, walnut and ash. Everything is enclosed by wrap-around floor-to-ceiling windows that offer breathtaking views of DTLA and beyond.
The first kitchen—one of four—is bigger than the main floor of some homes and offers the first clue as to why the residence is billed as an "entertainer's dream."
Polished white marble counters and minimalist chairs provide plenty of seating for tenants and guests. Those who love cooking will surely appreciate the lengthy list of premium appliances: a 36-inch refrigerator and 30-inch freezer, five-burner cooktop, 30-inch double wall oven, dual 24-inch Bosch dishwashers, plus a dedicated wine fridge and restaurant-style ice maker.
The catering kitchen, located next to the main kitchen, is thoughtfully equipped more high-end premium appliances, plus a beverage station with a cappuccino maker. Not far away is a 20-seat dining area and one of two temperature-controlled, glass-enclosed wine cellars that have a combined capacity of over 1,000 bottles.
That massive interior is impressive in its own right, but the 35th-floor rooftop area is the crown jewel of the rental. Nearly 8,000 square-feet of soiree-worthy outdoor patio wraps around the penthouse. Guests can dip in the 50-foot pool and attached hot tub while taking in tunes from a 30-speaker sound system, play table tennis, or simply relax in front of one of two large-screen, weatherproof TVs.
An outdoor lounge area and fire pit attached to another(!) fully-equipped kitchen serves as the perfect place to throw a sun-soaked bash or enjoy late-night cocktails, all while basking in the unimpeded cityscape.
Though the penthouse's layout is largely open-concept, there are opportunities for private affairs. A separate sound-proof personal theater room outfitted with a 4K projector and 120-inch screen, plush seating, and a marble side bar provides the perfect place to throw a moderately-sized watch party.
The master bedroom is ideally placed in the southeast corner of the residence to deliver more unobstructed views of LA through stunning glass doors that open up to a private patio.
Features of the master include a stone fireplace, marble countertop bar with integrated refrigerated drawers, an attached, spa-inspired ensuite with a walk-in rainfall shower/70-inch tub combo, and a 480 square-foot walk-in closet.
We'd be remiss not to mention that virtually all the electronics—from the countless smart TVs and centralized music system to the lighting fixtures, blackout shades and even the door locks—can be controlled using a Universal Remote Control.
If you want one of the very best extended stays that DTLA has to offer, look no further than the penthouse at LEVEL Furnished Living. Just be sure you're ready to drop $75,000 a month.
