What's the definition of penthouse?

What does penthouse mean? Are all apartments penthouses, or just the nice ones?

  • A pent house is a desirable flat on the top floor of a tall building, typically one that is luxuriously fitted.

  • Hello there, A penthouse is an apartment-style property that's on the top floor of an apartment block. Traditionally it referred to an entire, separately built 'house' on the top of the building. Today, it just means the top floor, though the luxury aspect remains, and penthouses are usually the nicest - and most expensive -homes in an apartment block. Many thanks, Dan
