Every week, Curbed covers dozens of market listings that vary in price, location, size, grandeur, quirkiness, and other distinct characteristics. If they managed to capture our attention, that means there’s definitely something special going on. But some of these homes are so lovely that they warrant a special kind of notoriety as some of the prettiest homes currently up for sale in New York City. And so, here it is: four listings that have that special "je ne sais quoi" that separates them from the rest. Happy gawking!
↑"Behold The Grandest Home In Queens!" brags the enthusiastic brokerbabble for this Douglaston palace. The listing otherwise scant on details, but based on the photos, the seven-bedroom, six-bath abode appears to be rather grand indeed. The $4.29 million home is complete with a basement which includes a full gymnasium "equipped with a baseball batting cage."
↑At 620 square feet, this one-bedroom, one-bathroom Upper West Side co-op is on the smaller side, but what it lacks in space it makes up for in charm. The living room features 12-foot ceilings, a genuinely massive wood-burning fireplace, original molding, and “almost floor-to-ceiling” windows that lead out to a “lovely” Juliet balcony, decorated with hand-pained Moroccan floor tiles.
↑For $16.5 million, within Michael Kirchmann and Alan Rudikoff of GDS Development’s redesigned Soho cast iron buildings, this five-bedroom, five-bathroom triplex doesn’t skimp on luxuries. It features wide white oak hardwood floors, imported natural stone, and marble; fancy appliances; an excess of sunlight; and “dueling terraces.” Obviously, it is accessible by private elevator.
↑This 5,016-square-foot townhouse on West 138th Street in Harlem first appeared on the market asking $3.75 million, a price that would’ve broken the sales record along Striver’s Row if it had successfully unloaded for that price. Well now it’s back for an even $4 million, though not much has changed.
