For $450K, this Castleberry Hill penthouse is shindig central

Loft is certainly authentic and unique but has its, um, quirks

Atop the Century Lofts in Castleberry Hill, this customized, two-story penthouse is loaded with bells-and-whistles that seem to have a singular objective: to get the party started.

With more than 1,900 square feet, this circa-1920 property has whole-house audio and lighting automation, a motorized 100-inch screen that drops from the ceiling for the LCD projector, a mega kitchen island with wine rack, and what would appear to be a stage.

Listed last month, it has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a price tag of $450,000.

Buyers might want to reserve a little budget to purge the whacky (bathroom mirrors), random (low walls of unknown purpose and missing carpet), and tacky (black tub and toilet) elements here.

But the perks are many. They include those inimitable raw beams columns (and at least one ancient, impenetrable door), Levelor cellular blinds, a Viking range, and Brazilian redwood floors.

The location chalks up a respectable Walk Score of 79. And the 180-degree downtown views from the loft’s private deck — with its synthetic Kentucky Bluegrass lawn and 576 square feet — are nothing short of spellbinding.
