Prettiest NYC homes that hit the market this week

This week’s edition includes an eclectic mix of apartments and townhouses

Every week, Curbed covers dozens of market listings that vary in price, location, size, grandeur, quirkiness, and other distinct characteristics.

↑The Greenwich Lane just unveiled the first of its completed townhouses, and the highly tailored $25 million digs do not disappoint. Designed by Rafael de Cárdenas “around the principle of a vertical chromatic temperature gradient,” the palatial home is loaded with luxe details, including, though hardly limited to: marble mosaic flooring in the foyer; a garden-facing library; an eat-in kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, custom-paneled cabinets, slab marble countertops; and a floor-to-ceiling glass Nano Wall opening out into the garden.
