Owning acres of land and lavish mansions with dozens of rooms may sound like the coolest thing if you want to show off your assets, but nothing compares to the aerial bird's eye view from the large windows of a luxurious penthouse perched on top of an opulent condo complex tower that seems to stand to defy the world. They are the ultimate bachelor crib. Everyone dreams of them, but few live to actually move into one.

What is it with billionaires and penthouses? It's as if they're some kind of business card they present themselves with. These multi-story pads come with a hefty price tag. All well justified if you ask me. Offering stunning views from their terraces and infinity pools at great heights, you will be treated like royalty in these vertical mansions, gazing at those playful city lights through the floor-to-ceiling glass panes. Prices skyrocketed over the past few years, and condo towers have become the playgrounds of billionaires. The hunt for trophy apartments continues. Just recently, Taylor Swift has reportedly purchased two penthouses in New York City worth a combined $20 million.

There are many important features to look for in a penthouse, like the size, view, design, furnishing, and amenities. The following pads, palatial, sick, and sexy altogether, have it all. Let's have a sneak peek into the best rooftop accommodations on the planet. Can you think of any reason why not to move into one today? The price tag may be a minor drawback, but I'm sure you can get over it.
