What Makes the Ultimate House Ultimate?

There’s a long list.

How many people can stand comfortably inside your closet? 

At Lumière, our 5th annual Ultimate House, the answer is 15 and counting. Inside the $2.65 million penthouse at 350 Oliver Ave., everything is big and beautiful. Soon you can see it for yourself. 

The multiple walk-in closets inside the 3-bedroom, 3.5-bath condominium will be custom-made by Closet Factory and valued at $30,000. The condo will be one of the first residences in town to include the new TAG Symphony organizing system, which Closet Factory Sales Manager Lacey Walters describes as “a fun new way to store shoes, necklaces and accessories.” 

Closet Factory will debut Ecco Domo faux leather countertops inside the Lumière penthouse, another feature making unit 809 unique. 

“Also, the combination of finishes will be fun and different for this space,” says Walters.

In addition to being high-end, Lumière will also be high-tech. 

Pittsburgh Custom Home Technologies will provide $40,000 worth of smart controls including lighting, door locks, HVAC Control, music throughout the house, shade controls and a 75-inch Sony TV with a Triad Speaker Surround Sound System. 

“The capability of unlocking the door, and having the system turn on a lighted pathway into the unit with music playing, that’s my favorite feature of the house,” says Pittsburgh Custom Home Technologies owner Greg Calvimontes. 

Lumière’s real show-stopping feature blends style with functionality — a NanaWall. A NanaWall is a full-length folding glass wall that allows an entire wall of the condo to open out to the wrap-around 665-square foot terrace.

The foldable wall will allow the penthouse tenant to make the most of Pittsburgh’s warmer months and move seamlessly from their living room to the terrace, which overlooks Mellon Square. 

If only the property could somehow control the weather, jokes Millcraft Investments Project Manager Chris McCune. “You have your own private patio that you could turn into your own indoor-outdoor space.” Certainly, a unique feature.
