With marble bathrooms, multi-levels and private rooftop deck, this posh penthouse isn't your everyday rental. But then again, it will cost you significantly more than the median apartment in the popular West Side Chicago neighborhood of Bucktown.

For the new two-bedroom, two-bath residence, the monthly rent is set at $2,200 per month. According to Chicago Apartment Finders, the average rental price is $1,474 a month, about 33 percent less than this featured multi-level penthouse. Yes, that rooftop terrace with unobstructed views is terribly enticing, but before you make a final decision, let's explore whether the premium on this sweet rental is worth it.
