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 broker lingo calls this apartment at 684 Broadway “urban bliss,” and we can get behind that. The 3,100 square feet loft features wooden-framed floor-to-ceiling windows that line the wall of the open living/dining room, providing prolific sunlight, and a flexible floorplan, for $5.5 million.
↑This four-bedroom townhouse essentially doubles as a showroom for the quirky, über-colorful pieces crafted by its owner, prolific designer Karim Rashid. It’s all very much in keeping with the designer’s aesthetic, which is provocative, whimsical, and full o’neon.
↑Nearly two years after the purchase, a mystery buyer of a sprawling One57 pad wants out, and they’re asking $52 million for it. The condo is a four-bedroom, four-bathroom and has been knitted out with some velvet armchairs and most notably a lounger that looks eerily similar to the one that was being auctioned off from the Four Seasons Restaurant.
↑The home at 24 Middagh Street in Brooklyn Heights, built around 1829 (making it one of the neighborhood’s oldest townhouses), is officially on the market, asking $6.65 million. A well-preserved time capsule from the neighborhood’s earliest days, with many of the charming historic details still intact, this home is a stunner.
↑Tucked away on an idyllic Greenwich Village block, this renovated five story townhouse features pretty much every excess imaginable, and then some. Designed with “no expense spared,” the not-so-humble abode features six possible bedrooms (the current floor plan shows five), an abundance of bathrooms, a full-floor master suite—complete with a walk-in closet and a separate dressing room—and assorted “entertaining rooms,” which more common people call “living areas.” Asking price is an eye-popping $23.5 million.
