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!
↑This Upper East Side mansion isn’t your average townhouse. There are seven floors that encompass 5,600 square feet alongside details like six working fireplaces, a beamed library, huge skylight, glass-enclosed atrium, and lovely backyard.
↑This Manhattan Beach contemporary home has an aesthetic that is hard to pin down, but it definitely takes heavy inspiration from the 1980s. Spread out over 6,000 square feet, it has six bedrooms, five bathrooms, an enormous living room with high ceilings and a wall o’windows; a curved staircase, a pool, and a six-car garage.
↑A 5,641-square-foot duplex at Extell’s Upper West Side condo The Aldyn, recently hit the market asking $16.99 million. The apartment comes with seven bedrooms, over eight bathrooms, a private elevator within the duplex apartment, a double-height living room and a double-height dining room that lets onto the terrace, and, oh yeah—there’s also a 37-foot pool.
↑The hyper-stylish Dumbo digs at 168 Water Street might be struggling to sell but certainly not because it is short on multi-million dollar charms. The modernist palace offers four sleek stories of living space, a back garden, a garage, and a private roof deck, obviously with idyllic skyline views.
↑A duplex spanning the 55th and 56th floors at One Madison appears to be the building’s last sponsor unit. The 6,620-square-foot apartment, boasts a huge living room, a master suite with two walk-in closets, and is basically eye-level with the gorgeous clock tower of the MetLife building.
