When looking for a new home, it's always about location, right? Now you can head right up into the heavens thanks to this so-called "sky house" listing in South End.

This penthouse is truly above and beyond, with glass walls and a 1,100-square-foot wrap-around terrace so you can walk outside amongst the clouds. 

Located at the top of 255 Northampton St., this condo — referred to as Unit SK701 — is up for grabs for $1.3 million. It offers two bedrooms and two bathrooms, along with 11-foot ceilings and hardwood floors throughout. 

In the kitchen you'll find stainless steel appliances and marble countertops. Inside there's also private laundry and lots of set-up storage via California Closets. 

The terrace, from which you'll be able to see stunning views of the South End, Back Bay and downtown, is also equipped with gas, water and electric. 

If you ever end up venturing outside the building, its just steps away from the retail and dining the South End has to offer, as well as Symphony Hall, Prudential Center and the Southwest Corridor running path, playgrounds, and tennis and basketball courts. There's also in-building parking for two cars included.
