Finished this month, this 11,200-square-foot estate offers expansive views— from downtown Los Angeles to Catalina Island—from its elevated 36,000-square-foot lot. The Los Angeles–based builder and designer Michael Palumbo, of Palumbo Design, and Marc Whipple, architect and founder of the city’s Whipple Russell Architects, designed the three-story residence, which includes five bedrooms and nine bathrooms, and a separate guesthouse with one bedroom, one bathroom, and a private gym. Among the main house’s features and amenities are a glass-walled six-car garage, a home theater, a wine room, a Crestron home automation system, Miele kitchen appliances, an infinity pool with a Jacuzzi, and a private deck off the master bedroom with a large fire pit and a personal Jacuzzi.

Penthouse One is the last available residence in the “sky garage” building—the 4-year-old tower designed by Selldorf Architects at 200 11th Avenue in West Chelsea. The 4,266-square-foot penthouse (including 668 exterior square feet), located on the 12th and 13th floors of the 19-story structure, offers three bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, and two terraces with unobstructed views of the Hudson River and the Chelsea Piers. The highlight is the unit’s one-car garage en suite, which is accessible via a private 8,000-pound-capacity elevator. Youngwoo & Associates—the developer of New York’s Pier 57 project—is redesigning the penthouse with the Rotterdam, Netherlands–based architecture firm MVRDV. Completion is expected next month.
