Home of the week: What makes a condo worth $1 million?

The very word penthouse makes people dream of living in glamour and luxury. This fourth-floor Prescott unit can make the dream come true. Thats why its priced above the $1 million mark, which could also purchase an elegant home or townhouse in the same prestigious Old Town area.
The luxury begins literally at the bottom, with $35,000 worth of gleaming 5-foot-wide plank floors. 
They continue throughout the home, except for the equally impressive bathroom pebble floors. 
Crown moldings adorn the nine-foot ceilings. The eat-in custom kitchen also features upscale quartz counters, contemporary chandeliers, a bar with display cabinets and dual ovens, dishwashers and wine coolers.
Adjoining the kitchen, the dining and living room area provides multi-paned glass doors leading to the private terrace.     
The living room also features a built-in fireplace framed by bookshelves, facing both the dining area and the entrance hall. The dining and living room also adjoin the front office, with the powder room beside it.
A hallway leads to the master suite, where walk-in closets stand between the rear bedroom and front bath. It boasts an oversized soaking tub framed by vanity counters and sinks, plus a separate shower and enclosed commode. 
On the opposite side of the home, a front bedroom has its own adjoining bath and a view of the private terrace. The community patio overlooks the Masonic temple and Old Town, with the King Street metro station about seven blocks away.
