Editor's Note: Houston and the surrounding areas are loaded with must-have houses for sale in all shapes, sizes and price ranges. In this continuing series, CultureMap snoops through some of the best and gives you the lowdown on what's hot on the market.

A really jazzy Midtown penthouse with sweeping downtown skyline views — and access to a breathtaking infinity pool on a expansive rooftop deck — is up for sale for those urbanites wanting new digs.

Walk through
This chic loft-style apartment at The Rise Lofts on 2000 Bagby St. sits on the top-level 15th floor in this modern condominium. Fifteen-foot-high ceilings throughout the property at Unit 15400 take owners from a dramatic entryway to the living and dining area, an expansive space for entertaining. Exposed ductwork adds to the ambiance, as do contemporary ceiling fans and twinkling track lighting. Hardwood scraped flooring is softened with custom area rugs.

A counter with bar stools is framed by a wall cut-out, opening the kitchen to the main room and allowing conversation to flow. Enter the kitchen from either side of the bar to find a gourmet chef's paradise. The slick stainless steel appliances, including a wine refrigerator, remain for the new residents.

The master bedroom is truly a room with a view. The full master bath is en suite, as is a recently renovated and expanded closet with built-in shelving.

The second bedroom is light and bright and includes its own closet. Across the hall is a room now serving as a media center, but easily transferrable into an office or third bedroom. Another full bathroom offers privacy for guests.

Step Outside
The master bedroom, as well as the grand room, open to a 742-square-foot terrace affording beautiful views of downtown. Unit 15400 is only one of four apartments on the top floor that boasts a private deck.

More incredible vistas and amenities are found on the 15th floor: Comfortable furnishings, dipping pool, hot tub and vanishing edge pool. All residents hold key fobs to enjoy daytime and nighttime activities in this amazing setting.

Two assigned parking places are part of the penthouse package and are located on the fourth floor.

P.S.: Keep the party noise to a minimum. And we'd like an invitation, by the way.
