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

ok i see then.
That means penthouse is usually expensive...

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:).

Thanks Casiopea!

It depends- some blocks of expensive apartments have huge top floor penthoiuses that cost a fortune.;-)
