Location: Charleston, S.C.
The Skinny: This two-story penthouse is located atop The People's Building (Charleston's first skyscraper and still the second tallest building in the "Holy City") and boasts unrivaled city and harbor views. Its perch overlooking the city is apropos, as its incredibly bullish asking price of $19.5M represents the highest ever for a Lowcountry condominium and one of the highest prices ever recorded for any residential property in the region. The penthouse was acquired as an unfinished space by a local real estate investor, who paid $1.2M for the 7,516-square-foot property in 2003 and now stands to make a tidy profit. Monique Gibson, who has designed for celebs like Elton John and Jon Stewart, was brought in to finish out the space, adding Turkish limestone floors, Calcutta Gold countertops, and Sub-Zero and Miele appliances. On the upper floor, two guest suites and an independent kitchen open out onto a 3,500-square-foot rooftop garden featuring landscaping by Sheila Wertimer.
