The place

This is the larger of the two grand rooftop penthouses in the residences of Sherwood at Huntington. The building is brand new, as evidenced by the unit’s white oak flooring, marble fireplace, and quartz kitchen surfaces.

Here’s the living area:

The dining area has a fireplace:

The kitchen and breakfast area:

Big selling point

A private elevator connects the unit to a giant rooftop terrace, complete with an outdoor kitchen and 360-degree views of the city (the downtown skyline to the south, and ravines to the east and west):
