Downtown San Diego Penthouse

By Mike in June 2008|Video with 0 Comments


In the course of doing Real Estate in Downtown San Diego, it is always a pleasure to list and review totally unique urban homes. This rare Southwest corner penthouse on the 9th floor in Brittany Towers is one of the most stunning and unique that I have run across here in my Downtown San Diego experience. I say rare, because this orientation and floor become available only every couple of decades or so. Since Brittany tower was constructed in 1984, this same floor plan from floor 8 and above has only been available twice. Brittany Towers is one of the most unique and stunning buildings in 92101. The luxury complex is most known for its architectural feature of slanted and tinted exterior windows, sweeping hilltop Skyline and Bay views, and proximity to Balboa Park. The Brittany Tower home is most attractive to the urban homebuyer who wants to combine views, space, and a location that is close to the action. Without being in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Downtown. The complex features include: Full time security and community attendant, pool, indoor spa, fitness center, and elegant community room and party facilities.
When you first walk thru the door of this contemporary and elegant home, your eye is drawn to the sweeping 270 degree South West views of the Downtown Skyline, Pt. Loma, the North Bay, the Airport, and Coronado. Walking into the living room, it is easy to be impressed by the size and openness of the living space. A two bedroom two bath plus den floor plan at over 2200 square feet puts this urban home in the top 1% for Square footage in 92101. One of the main architectural features of the building and home are the corner wrap around windows. The windows in the Brittney Tower complex are like no others Downtown, and set the tone for design and feeling when inside one of its upscale homes. They have a noticeable slant and tint that: protect the day views from overexposure, and protect the night views from the glare of indoor lighting. This architectural feature contributes to the contemporary, spacious and urban feeling of this penthouse home. In order to maximize the wow factor of this home, the owners performed a floor to ceiling remodel consisting of over $4ook in upgrades. All the upgrades were so thoughtful, tasteful creating a real urban experience thru design and architecture. This is one of those units you have to see, touch, and feel in order to get the full effect of its experience.
