Designed by LM Pagano and built in 2001, Penthouse 5 at The Remington in Los Angeles is a "very ornate palace in the sky," according to its agents, Greg Holcomb and Cassandra Petersen.
The apartment is decorated with French wallpaper, has ultra high-end finishes, direct elevator access and one of the largest rooftop terraces in L.A., offering panoramic vistas of the city and the Pacific Ocean.
The 24-floor Remington building was designed by Richard Magee, a partner of Van Tilburg, Banvard & Soderbergh Architects. The building received the Gold Nugget Award of Merit, which honors creative achievements in architectural design and land-use planning, according to Mr. Holcomb and Ms. Petersen.
Penthouse 5 is a 5,991-square-foot duplex with three bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms.
Amenities include a 24-hour concierge, valet parking, a pool, fitness center and a wine room with wine lockers. The "round the clock valet parking," is a highlight, according to Mr. Holcomb, who adds that the building’s staff is outstanding. "They’ll bend over backwards for you," he said.
The building also offers an onsite engineer for any renovations its residents might desire.
This particular apartment’s additional offerings include access to three parking spaces, a 1,800-square-foot outdoor terrace and a home office.
The Westwood Village neighborhood of Los Angeles, sandwiched between Beverly Hills and Santa Monica, is home to many high-end homes, as well as some of L.A.’s finest retail offerings and a UCLA campus. Just a 10-minute drive from both Santa Monica to the west and Downtown L.A. to the east, the area is also immediately adjacent to Holmby Hills and Bel Air, and the spectacular state parks and recreational centers just beyond.
