Corcoran’s A-List
April 2024


A monthly showcase of the most spectacular listings across the Corcoran network.

Enjoy our monthly survey of incredible listings across the Corcoran network. Highlights in this edition: A Brooklyn townhouse with country flair, a Hamptons retreat that perfectly evokes the region’s timeless sensibilities, historic homes in Denver and Massachusetts, and villas in Italy and St. Barth with downright swoon-worthy views.


What’s Here: A seven-bedroom duplex on Upper Fifth Avenue, set in a classic Emery Roth prewar that’s every bit as resplendent as you’d expect (and more). Let abundant natural light draw you from the private elevator entrance to picture windows over Central Park, which frame a 30-foot-long living and dining room boasting richly-toned herringbone wood floors. A double-sided fireplace separates the sunny, sophisticated library. A windowed eat-in kitchen, complete with an island and a corner banquette, awaits for relaxed everyday meals. Further entertaining space is found upstairs, including a den that makes for an ideal screening room.

What We Love: Putting aside the proximity of Central Park, this address sits along the upper reaches of the Museum Mile and places indelible cultural institutions as close outside your front door as the Conservatory Garden’s wonderment.

What’s Here: A three-bedroom penthouse that intertwines the past and the present. The condo’s hardwood floors and 12-foot-high concrete ceilings feel plucked out from one of the city’s many previous eras. They gleam all the same when the sun hits through oversized bronze casement windows — which also serve up One World Trade Center views. There is also a sleekness to the home, enforced by a black marble kitchen, three marble baths, and a top-of-the-line Miele appliance suite. Covetable building amenities include a 4,100-square-foot rooftop, two outdoor kitchens, and an Equinox with discounted membership for residents.

What We Love: You’ll always have plans in the neighborhood if you want them. The home sits deep in the heart of the Lower East Side — delightfully close to a panoply of thriving restaurants, bars, music venues, museums, and more.

What’s Here: Sunlight pours into this country-meets-city Brooklyn Heights townhouse. That’s true all across its four exquisite levels, but especially so in the parlor floor’s conservatory-ceiling living room. A brick wood-burning fireplace cranks the warmth and cottage aura of the space, which opens to a garden-overlooking tea porch via French doors. Other stunning original prewar elements include wide plank hardwood floors, exposed beams, and exposed brick. There’s another brick wood-burning fireplace in the kitchen, too. The upper two floors are reserved for four of the home’s five bedrooms, ensuring a clear division between public and private spaces.

What We Love: The townhouse’s garden level has a den, the home’s fifth bedroom, and a floor-to-ceiling glass-enclosed area that’s currently a gym but can serve as whatever you want it to be. Of course, this level also walks out to the irrigated back garden, which includes a flowering dogwood, a maple tree, and rose bushes — all surrounding a brick patio.

East End

What’s Here: This traditional-style, shingled Sagaponack home is a coastal beaut. Prolific windows and French doors fill the main level with natural light, flowing through a divine dining room, a scrumptious kitchen, and a vast living area. A flourishing charm throughout is bolstered by vaulted ceilings, crown moldings, and pronounced hallway arches. All four bedrooms rest upstairs. The primary wing especially allures with its stone floors, gas fireplace — one of four in the home — spacious reading nook, and marble bath with access to one of the level’s two terraces. And we didn’t even mention the finished lower level’s game room and media room.

What We Love: AD 100-recognized Hollander Design Landscape Architects composed the property’s heavenly scenery, sprawling over 1.38 acres. The backyard maximizes this area as an outdoor living and dining sanctuary, with its patio and covered porch centering on a 60-foot heated gunite pool it’ll be hard not to dip into.

Hudson Valley

What’s Here: A 110+ acre equestrian estate in the pastoral Millbrook Hunt country has an elegant six-bedroom, 6,352-square-foot house at its heart. The traditional exterior of the main residence belies a strikingly modern interior, with a distinctive modern staircase at its center. Designed for hosting parties small and large, the grand residence has a very spacious chef’s kitchen with polished concrete floors, which connects to a butler’s pantry, complete with a wine refrigerator, secondary refrigerator, ice maker, and sink. There’s also an outdoor kitchen on the 21′ x 25′ bluestone terrace, which connect to the interior of the house with steel-and-glass folding walls. There’s also a new, heated, gunite pool with an automatic cover that’s just a short walk from the house. 

What We Love: The estate is part of the Dutchess Land Conservancy, and is surrounded by more than 1,000 acres of the Wethersfield Foundation, ensuring privacy and open views. There are two barns  one for tractors and one for horses  as well as a lighted outdoor ring, fenced paddocks, a pond, and apple and peach trees.

South Florida

What’s Here: Sail right up to, essentially, a private harbor at this astounding seven-bed Gulf Stream estate. Dock and disembark at a tropical escape boasting a pool beneath the palms, villa-like stone walkways layered with flora, and a covered loggia with a wood-beamed ceiling. Around the home’s front end — should you opt for traveling the land route — twin fountains buttress an imposing front door that opens to a spectacular double-height entry. However, you won’t linger long. Floor-to-ceiling windows beckon with unobstructed water vistas, while a wood-paneled room off the living area is ideal for entertaining with its custom back bar.

What We Love: Home chefs should get out their knives in a positive sense for a kitchen that’s fully equipped and then some — flaunting a six-burner Wolf stove, marble countertops (including on the center island) three ovens, three sinks, an infrared griddle, and a walk-in pantry. It adjoins a sitting area beneath vaulted paneled ceilings with a built-in wall unit and a gas fireplace, forming a seamless space for casual gatherings.

Southwest Florida

What’s Here: Unwind in this waterfront four-bedroom, four-bathroom retreat in Sarasota, with panoramic Gulf views from every room. Spread out over three floors, the house boasts an elevator, as well as rooftop terrace with a hot tub and fire pit. Floor-to-ceiling windows throughout take advantage of the vistas of sky and sea, while brand-new a/c units keep the interior cool. The living room has a fireplace and opens directly to the kitchen, dining area, and breakfast nook. The second and the third floor both have terraces, with space for grilling and al fresco dinners — perfect for watching the magnificent sunsets over the beach. 

What We Love: The bathroom in the primary suite has a large soaking tub facing a wall of windows. What could be more relaxing than taking a bath while watching the waves roll in and the clouds drifting by?

Northwest Florida

What’s Here: This charming five-bedroom, five-bathroom lakefront house on the Emerald Coast’s Inlet Beach has its own private dock, as well as a comfortable open-concept interior. A snack and a drink is always close at hand, as there’s a well-appointed chef’s kitchen inside, an outdoor kitchen with a grill and a pizza oven outside, and two separate wet bars. There’s a spacious deck, with plenty of room for seating; a pool; and two screened-in porches, equipped with overhead fans to keep cool while enjoying the views. 

What We Love: The primary suite has a luxurious bathroom with a soaking tub, plus a walk-in shower with two side-by-side showers heads, each with their own hot and cold water knobs, allowing for a hedonistic shower without leaving anyone out in the cold.

What’s Here: This stately 1910 residence was originally built for William Fisher, founding partner of renowned Denver architecture firm Fisher & Fisher. The firm was responsible for more than 60 of Denver’s most iconic buildings and shaped the look of the city more than any other firm. Fisher built many of the houses in Country Club, and chose the neighborhood for his own home. Recent renovations have modernized this historic structure into an updated five-bedroom residence covering 7,233 square feet, with a completely renovated kitchen, bathrooms, and basement. Upstairs, rooms were combined to create a light-filled primary suite. 

What We Love: Modern conveniences in this historic home include new HVAC and electrical systems, elevator, new garage, gazebo with a fireplace and flatscreen, outdoor bath, and built-in grill. The basement has radiant heating and a temperature-controlled wine cellar. There’s a pool, hot tub, and most unusually, an in-ground trampoline surrounded by beautiful landscaping.

What’s Here: This iconic Cohasset residence was built in the 1920s as a summer retreat for the famed Cabot family and has been rebuilt into a spectacular, modern six-bedroom house. Perched up on a hill above a coastal enclave, this family home has been thoughtfully modernized for the ultimate in year-round living. The chef’s kitchen features a 13-foot center island and an adjacent pantry, while upstairs, there’s a lounge and wet bar. The house has amazing ocean vistas from multiple rooms, and the primary bedroom offers a panoramic ocean view all the way to the Minot’s Ledge lighthouse and beyond.

What We Love: The house has four mahogany decks on which to sit and watch the boats in the harbor below, while a wraparound porch with an outdoor shower leads to a lawn that’s just steps from a private beach with ocean access. The property also comes with deeded rights to the exclusive Sandy Cove.

Northern California

What’s Here: A five-bedroom Noe Valley stunner is designed to maximize the joys of indoor-outdoor living. The first floor, which has an open floor plan comprising the living area, kitchen, and lounge, has sliding glass doors that open to the garden. The second floor is home to three bedrooms, including the primary suite, and each with access to a deck. The penthouse level has a second primary suite with its own deck and glamorous bathroom, as well as a media room or home office with a deck as well. Finally, the garden level has a family room that opens to a private patio, as well as an additional bedroom that can be used for guests or as a second home office.

What We Love: This house boasts two very rare amenities in San Francisco: central air conditioning and an elevator!

New Jersey

What’s Here: A lovely seven-bedroom Colonial built in 1840 serves as the primary house on this glorious Princeton estate, as well as boasting a two-story pool house (and a heated pool and spa, of course). Though the house has all the mod-cons needed for life in 2024 — heated floors, multi-zone heating and cooling, and a wine room — it’s the historical details that really make this house come to life: The original floors from the 1800s are still in place, as well as custom millwork and the original six fireplaces. There’s a bright sunroom, while the primary suite has an enclosed glass terrace. There’s even a casual, DIY-style bar in the basement.

What We Love: The English gardens with rolling lawns are spacious enough for tented parties, and the pool house is an architectural marvel, with a fish tank backed by Lalique glass, hand-hewn maple paneling with scenes of ocean life, and giant wooden cephalopods carved to curl around the built-in bookshelves. The pool house also has limestone floors, a fireplace, and a kitchen.

What’s Here: Experience heaven on Earth in the aptly named seven-bedroom Paradise Villa, with astonishing views of Lake Garda. All of the bright and spacious bedrooms have their own private bathrooms and access to the spectacular outdoor space. The combined kitchen and dining area is light-filled, with plenty of space for cooking amazing feasts or just enjoying a morning coffee. There’s also a separate food pantry/wine cellar with exposed stone walls, with its own refrigerator and sink, which can serve as additional prep space, especially for large parties with multi-course meals. 

What We Love: The exterior grounds of the villa are spectacular, with a pool, multiple terraces, and a large, lush garden.

St. Barth

What’s Here: This villa’s exclusive, private path that leads directly to Anse des Cayes beach is enough to sell anyone on why this retreat is just so special, and when you take into account the clean, modern lines of the four bedrooms and four bathrooms that make up the house itself, it becomes clear why this is a one-of-a-kind property on an island of breathtaking residences. The great room opens up directly to the pool and terrace, while two bedroom suites are situated on the lower level and the other two bedroom suites, including the primary suite, are located on the upper level. The primary suite also has its own steam room, for an extra touch of luxury.

What We Love: Anse des Cayes is a neighborhood that’s a hidden gem and beloved by those in the know. Its beach is off the beaten path and never crowded, and serves as a popular spot for surfers, who love riding the exposed reef break. The only major commercial establishment here is Hotel Manapany, which has its own restaurant and bar and is known for its delicious breakfasts.
