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: five listing that have that special "je ne sais quoi" that separates them from the rest. Happy gawking!
↑The West Chelsea condo just hit the market for $9.5M with a full-floor, open-plan, column-free interior offers 2,600 square feet of (mostly) uninterrupted living space, with a huge foyer, an expansive living/dining area, an eat-in cook’s kitchen, two bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and so many windows your domestic life is basically public performance art.
↑There’s a lot happening with this week’s Pricespotter, a gorgeous triplex condo in Bed-Stuy, which comes with two bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, and a roof deck that’s the size of some people’s apartments. Huge windows flood the apartment with light, and a staircase connects the different levels. It also comes with a smart home system, a washer/dryer, and a 72-square-foot private storage space, all for the price of $1.095 million.
↑A historic Ellis Island ferry—the oldest remaining, built in 1907—is looking for a new steward willing to lay down $1.25 million to own, and take care of the vessel. The ferry currently serves as the residence of artists Richard and Victoria MacKenzie-Childs, who have lived out of and docked the ship around New York City and its surrounds for the last 15 years.
↑An elegant two-bedroom, two-bathroom co-op on East 10th Street in the East Village that’s loaded with unfussy but lovely details. The downside: it’s asking $2.5 million.
↑A sprawling Tribeca condo has returned to the market just a week after it was purchased by actor/comedian Mike Myers in what we assume might’ve been a case of buyer’s remorse. The $15 million apartment is a beauty with plenty of chic, industrial charm. Some of its highlights include 14 arched windows, original beams and columns that have been restored, a huge open concept chef’s kitchen, and much more.
