If you're trying to get yourself a home in the "best place to be", then relocating to Vienna might be the ideal thing for you to do. According to Mercer surveys, Austria's capital scored highest for overall quality of living once again last year.
This extravagant and luxury duplex penthouse is part of a multi-family villa that was restored at the end of 2008. The house is situated in Döbling, one of Vienna's residential areas of choice for the well-heeled, in a neighbourhood of stately mansions set amidst lush greenery.
The apartment's living area amounts to 357 square metres, or six rooms, with three bedrooms and roof terraces with dumb waiter and whirlpool offering an extra 125 square metres of space. From here you can enjoy a fantastic view all over Vienna and the Vienna Woods, which are just a couple of minutes away, making the terraces the perfect place to relax and unwind after a hard day's work.
The large panoramic glazing is very impressive and imbues the whole apartment with an exceptionally light atmosphere. The lower floor offers a large living/dining room, an open designer kitchen with access to the terrace, two rooms with loggias, a bathroom/WC, a lobby and another WC. On the gallery floor there are three more rooms, a large bathroom with sauna, a further bathroom, wardrobe and a utility room. The asking price for this luxury penthouse is €2.6 million (approximately Dh13.06 million).
