West Hartford penthouse listed for $919K

WEST HARTFORD — The best of both worlds is possible at this penthouse, with a recently updated interior and private outdoor terrace.

The more than 6,500 square feet of living space has given 779 Prospect Ave Unit PH the title of the largest condo in the Hartford area, according to the listing’s presenters at Coldwell Banker Realty. 

Penthouses are a rarity in Connecticut, and this one will make you think you are in New York City due to its modern feel. Elizabeth Georgescu, the listing agent of Coldwell Banker Realty, describes the property as “truly one of a kind” and that both the indoor and outdoor spaces feel “contemporary, open-concept, bright and beautiful.” 

Inside, there are three bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms across 3,441 square feet of living space. In the bathroom attached to the main bedroom, there is a “high-end, spa-like bathroom, with heated floors, private gym space and French doors out to the deck,” according to information provided by Coldwell Banker Realty.

In addition to the bed and baths, there is a library or space for a home office with custom bookcases and an original, trayed ceiling, according to the listing details. 

The penthouse recently underwent a complete remodel, which Georgescu described as from “the studs up.” She said the main renovations created more space, as well as leveled and replaced the floors with brand-new hardwood. Some of the other “must-haves” for the previous owner included creating a gourmet kitchen and space on the deck for gardening and beekeeping. 

The kitchen is described as a “chef’s dream” due to its high-end appliances, sleek cabinetry, and ample space for entertainment. Off the kitchen, there is a 244-bottle Thermador wine closet, according to the listing details. 

A second kitchen is located on the outdoor 3,000-square-foot patio. The kitchen is accompanied with an integrated gas grill and covered by a retractable awning. The private area is spacious and fit for entertaining throughout several months. 

A stand-out feature on the terrace is a cube-like structure, done by an artist believed to be a student of American sculptor, Alexander Calder, according to Georgescu. The cube was there prior to the current owner’s arrival. 

Coldwell Banker Realty describes the property as “move-in ready” as no detail was left untouched. The penthouse comes with two designated parking spaces and is located a brief walk away from Elizabeth Park.
