I checked out a couple of dictionaries, still not sure whether it should be expensive type or cheap...
Like if somebody said he bought a penthouse somewhere, was he showing off or something?
BTW, I got this when watching TV.
thanks a lot

I though house should be more expensive, though. Am I right? I guess penthouse is more likely to be in big city as in NYC or something.
It depends- some blocks of expensive apartments have huge top floor penthoiuses that cost a fortune.
