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!
↑Fresh off a cover feature in the holy tome of celebrity interiors, the impeccable Soho loft of actress Meg Ryan has hit the market for $10.9 million. The classic loft was fine in its own right when Ryan moved in, but its been elevated with a gut renovation by architect Joel Barkley and designer Monique Gibson.
↑There are endless design elements throughout this $19 million Upper West Side brownstone, owned by Miramax Films co-founder Bob Weinstein the space, including a huge dressing room, three distinct outdoor spaces, several skylights, and an elevator to make transportation throughout the many floors. But the most unexpected and gawk-worthy feature is undoubtedly the home gym with its own half-basketball court clad in wooden walls. Suddenly, $19 million doesn’t seem so bad.
↑This charming and rustic co-op in the East Village was once home to a school and a church, and the apartment retains many of the original bones of the spacious property. The exposed brick, the indoor arches, the skylights, and the massive thirteen and a half-foot high ceiling have all been maintained from when this building was built in the 1940s. It’s now asking $1.3 million.
↑Everyone loves a cute Parisian-style apartment, and in Clinton Hill, a one-bedroom duplex that has a similar boho-chic appeal has appeared, asking just under the million dollar mark at $995,000.
↑Fargo actress Kirsten Dunst is selling her lovely loft at the nexus of Soho and Tribeca for $5 million. The space offers two bedrooms (though it’s a case of a “gallery” being upsold as a bedroom), one bathroom, and lots of the finishes and features that people love in NYC lofts. (Exposed brick, an open floorplan, huge windows, and the like.) The kitchen is also, it must be said, basically catalog-perfect.
