Prettiest NYC homes that hit the market this week

This week’s edition includes a Chelsea “Muffin House” co-op and a lovely beach home in the Rockaways

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 charming home in City Island measures more than 1,200 square feet, and has two bedrooms, an eat-in kitchen, and an airy, open floor plan. The last time it was updated was 2005, so some parts of the house could use more of a modern touch, but it does have central air and lots of windows (and skylights!). Read more…

↑A cute little Chelsea studio just hit the market and the apartment is noteworthy because of the building it occupies—a townhouse that once served as the site of a bakery used by Samuel Bath Thomas to craft the baked goods that still bear his name.
