One of Tel Aviv's Priciest Homes Has Moving Walls and Sea Views

The penthouse at the Jaffa hotel is now asking US$59 million.

One of the priciest apartments for sale in Israel just got a little bit more affordable. The sprawling penthouse that sits atop Tel Aviv's Jaffa hotel, and gets to enjoy all of its five-star amenities, is now on the market for US$59 million.

Located in Jaffa, the oldest part of Tel Aviv, the home blends old-world charm with contemporary urban living. It was previously being shopped around for US$65 million.

The more than 16,000-square-foot spread, designed by Israeli architect Pitsou Kedem, "draws inspiration from the surrounding coastal environment, combining elements of modern architecture with a touch of Mediterranean charm," said Isidora Fridman, founding partner of Israel Sotheby's International Realty.

"The architect and designer aimed to create a harmonious blend of contemporary aesthetics and a warm, inviting atmosphere," Fridman added.

Echoing the neighborhood beyond, the six-bedroom penthouse uses natural warm materials like Mediterranean stones, marble and light wood floors, alongside rich fabrics, custom-made furniture and walls of glass that take in views of Tel Aviv and the Mediterranean Sea.

The foyer leads to a light-flooded living and dining area, where pivoting walls swing open to create an open-concept living space. An architecturally impressive spiral staircase twists up to the roof terrace.

There's also a gym; a solarium; a gourmet kitchen; a spacious primary bedroom suite with a walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom, according to the listing.

Tel Aviv's high-end buyers want "a combination of luxury, comfort and prestige," Fridman said.

The attached hotel offers amenities including a spa, a fitness center, lounges and an event hall, and 24/7 concierge services.

"Many high-end buyers appreciate the convenience and luxury of having these amenities within the same building, as it adds to the overall comfort and upscale living experience," Fridman said.
