A monthly showcase of the most spectacular listings across the Corcoran network.
Enjoy our survey of Corcoran’s most incredible listings across the country. Taking center stage this month: An extra-large townhouse in Brooklyn, a coveted address in the Hamptons, a graceful southern manse in Savannah, and a gorgeous pair of 19th-century jewelboxes on both coasts.
New York City
What’s Here: A grand-proportioned Brooklyn Heights townhouse, dating to the late 19th century. Renovations have given this extra-spacious home a modern flair while expertly preserving its timeless style. 10-foot ceilings soar over the parlor floor’s living and dining rooms, both featuring gas fireplaces with marble mantels. The dining room, spacious enough for separate formal and casual seating areas, basks in light through a floor-to-ceiling glass window. Two more gas fireplaces—bringing the total to four, for those counting—are on the third floor. A minimalist open space that’s perfect for work or play occupies the fifth floor on wide plank hardwood floors.
What We Love: Exit from either the dining room or the garden floor and relax in the backyard, the picture of serene city solitude among white birch trees.
What’s Here: It doesn’t get much more “Hamptons” than this shingled Southampton estate, nestled into the hedges of coveted Gin Lane a short stroll from the Atlantic Ocean. Double-height grand foyer ceilings, and coffered living room ceilings, denote a stately elegance, and a fleet of windows and glass doors fill the home with warm natural light across all levels. Peer out at the ocean waves from several second-floor rooms, including the primary suite. Multiple balconies—also on the second floor—allow you to take in the crisp coastal air. The lower level adds a game room and wine cellar, among unfinished spaces moldable into any final form you wish.
What We Love: Outside the house’s 8,000 glorious square feet, there are over two acres of lush land to luxuriate on—whether sitting under a covered loggia, relaxing beside the 55-foot swimming pool, or enjoying a spirited tennis match on your private court.
What’s Here: If two words could describe this Manalapan manse’s seaside opulence, they would be “and more.” Pass through the double iron gates, open the embossed custom mahogany door—emblazoned with a coat of arms—and step onto a marble entry floor boasting skyward limestone pillars. Notice a gleaming chandelier hanging from a ceiling painted with a fresco-inspired mural. Sun shines through the living room’s double-height glass windows. There’s a recurring stained glass motif across several of the rooms, including the home movie theater. Outside, the stone-inlaid summer kitchen contains a grill and a brick pizza oven. And more.
What We Love: Dual waterfronts on the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean. Head out on the former via a private dock or sunbathe by the latter on a secluded stretch of beach.
What’s Here: Even in a city of historic houses, this Historic District 1903 estate stands out for its magnificence and unparalleled location. Built by acclaimed architect G.L. Norman to complement Savannah’s iconic Forsyth Fountain, the mansion is the only private estate that faces the fountain. There are multiple balconies and a vast veranda to appreciate the view of Forsyth Park right across the street. The beautifully interior is replete with hand-carved wooden details, an Italian marble fireplace, and an elegant staircase. The upstairs of the main house has four bedrooms and three full bathrooms, with the ground floor devoted to living and entertaining.
What We Love: The grounds also include a carriage house with two tenant-occupied one bedroom, one-bathroom units.
What’s Here: A meticulously restored 1883 Gilded Age townhouse in Hoboken has six levels of museum-quality architectural details paired with the latest in modern conveniences. The main house has five to seven bedrooms and three full bathrooms, plus two powder rooms, all with hardwood floors, carefully restored details, as well as seven fireplaces. Four of the fireplaces have been converted to gas, and the whole house has high-velocity heating and cooling, plus hydronic radiant floors in the kitchen and bathrooms.
What We Love: The property also boasts a carriage house that serves as both garage and a separate one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment on its second floor.
What’s Here: A beautifully well-preserved Victorian from 1888 is being sold by its third owner in 134 years. Beyond the house’s four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and two powder rooms, there’s also a triple parlor for formal entertaining, including a breakfast room with a butler’s pass-through window to the dining room. In addition to a back set of stairs, originally designed for servants, the house has a still-functioning speaking tube-and-bell system that served as a precursor to the modern intercom.
What We Love: There is also a modern rear addition with a new kitchen, a full bathroom, and a sunroom with a huge skylight and French doors that serve in contrast to the ornate style of the rooms that form the original part of the house.
What’s Here: This grand six-bedroom Rincon mansion has almost 8,000-square-feet of interior living space, as well as a spectacular private garden, complete with a pool and pergola. There are several open living spaces, three formal dining spaces, and each of the two floors has its own fully equipped kitchen, making this an entertainer’s dream. The residence has views of the ocean, mountains, and Desecheo Island from every room, as well as generous terraces on both floors to appreciate the vistas from outside.
What We Love: There is also a separate two-bedroom, one-and-a-half bath guest house, a separate home office, a laundry room, and an event space across from the gardens and main house.
What’s Here: Stunning 140-acre equestrian estate includes a 9,000+ square foot residence with five bedrooms, six bathrooms, and two half bathrooms. Outside, there’s an infinity pool, a full-size pool house, and a putting green. Top-of-the-line equestrian facilities include European-style stables with 18 stalls, a lighted and enclosed covered arena with viewing area, a 60′-covered solid-wall round pen, and a stable lounge with an attached climate-controlled 18 locker tack room. There’s also a separate fitness training facility.
What We Love: The splendid primary house boasts a movie theater, a home office, and exquisite spa-style bathrooms.
What’s Here: Welcome to Hale O Ka Nani Wahine (or House of a Beautiful Woman), a single-level, sprawling, and eclectic estate of four bedrooms and four bathrooms at the center of five gorgeously landscaped acres with unobstructed views. A covered lanai wraps around the house and inside, soaring 12-foot ceilings and ornate finishes sourced from around the world decorate every room. Outside, there’s a luxurious heated lap pool and spa. French doors line the lanai, opening to connect the indoors and the outdoors.
What We Love: The fully irrigated grounds include a productive 75 mango tree farm, along with an abundance of avocado trees.
