Perhaps it’s a stretch to label any condo that’s merely a half-dozen stories off the street a “penthouse,” as is the case here, but this Glen Iris Lofts offering brings aspects that are inarguably top-shelf.

Notably, the location. And a double-dose of balconies for soaking in morning sunshine—or the bustle of Ponce City Market.

As the 86 WalkScore attests, this section of Old Fourth Ward has witnessed a commercial and green-space explosion in the past decade, resulting in what the listing rightly describes as “one of intown’s best walkable locations.”

Listed at $559,000 this week, with $438 monthly HOA fees to consider, this two-story condo is the priciest option for sale in the building at the moment. Which is logical, given its dimensions and top-floor placement.

With ceilings that soar more than 20 feet in places, it counts a roomy 1,392 square feet with two bathrooms and two bedrooms, although one lacks windows and the other a fourth wall. However, windows, like balconies, are in abundance elsewhere—enough to likely ease heating costs in winter.

For longevity’s sake, what’s described as commercial-grade construction is a plus, provided occupants don’t mind concrete flooring. Meanwhile, some hard surfaces and cabinetry—while totally functional—hint at the condo’s 2002 beginnings.

For Netflix junkies, a surprise comes in the generously proportioned family room: The 110-inch projection screen is included, per the listing.
