Corcoran’s A-List
December 2022


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

Enjoy our monthly survey of incredible listings across the Corcoran network. Taking center stage this month: space and historic charm at an Upper Manhattan townhouse, an enchanting castle in the suburbs of Westchester County, a palatial Palm Beach retreat, a charming modern farmhouse in the South Carolina Lowcountry, and a tropical escape in Puerto Rico.

New York

What’s Here: Enjoy Central Park without ever going out the door. A full 30 feet of this Upper West Side co-op faces NYC’s most cherished green space, stretching from the living room into the corner primary bedroom. The former has beamed ceilings and a wood-burning fireplace; the latter flaunts multiple built-ins and an ensuite with a soaking tub. An enormous dining room makes dinner party hosting easy as pie, while the windowed kitchen — brandishing a six-burner stove with a grill and dual ovens — stands by for meals of any size. Oak hardwood floors, along with mahogany millwork crafted from a single tree, further accent the prewar abode.

What We Love: This home is move-in ready with ample custom closet space, automated shades, a Sonos sound system, and Nest integrations.

What’s Here: Escape the rush of Manhattan without leaving at this six-bedroom Romanesque Revival townhouse in Hamilton Heights. A diligent restoration went beyond its limestone façade. Inside, you’ll find original parquet and herringbone floors, wainscoting, pocket doors, and archways that maintain that timeless feel that everyone treasures in a New York row house. But it’s the outside that truly sets this place apart from the rest: A back terrace off the dining room, along with the deck off a top-floor bedroom, peer over a lovely backyard that thrives with plant life and wraps around the building’s ivy-blanketed side to meet a paved patio.

What We LoveWorry not about finding parking or scrambling to move the car so street cleaners can roll through — the space between this home and its neighbor serves as a private driveway.

What’s Here: A move-in-ready, full-floor duplex penthouse in a striking new development in Gramercy (in which residences N802 and N901 are also currently available). Enter via a private landing and let the pervading sunlight draw you into the main level’s expansive living and dining area, ideal for large-scale entertaining. Nearby, an open kitchen is outfitted with a suite of Gaggenau appliances — including a five-burner stove and 50-bottle wine fridge — and ample acid-etched, back-painted glass cabinetry. Three of four bedrooms also sit on this level, including a primary suite with one of the home’s two balconies and a luxe spa-like bath.

What We Love: A personal, 72-foot-wide roof terrace sporting a full outdoor kitchen — including a barbecue grill — a fire pit, and glorious southward views over Manhattan.

What’s Here: Glass walls and oversized windows invite over what will always be this Sagaponack home’s most distinguished guest: warm, natural light. All first-floor activities converge around the kitchen’s marble island, an inherently social space — whether or not a Hamptons-made clam pizza is involved. Every level of this custom six-bedroom leads outside in one way or another, a brilliant design choice as these outdoors are a bucolic paradise. A dining terrace sits under a vine-covered pergola, ideal for indulging in food fresh off the grill. The vast pool is surrounded by a bluestone patio and adjacent to a pool house with a separate bar, lounge, and bathroom.

What We Love: A finished lower level with all the fixings, including a massive den, a gym, and a wine room.

What’s Here: A fairytale castle with a storied pedigree: A Broadway producer, Associated Press president, and actors Shirley Jones and Jack Cassidy (and their celebrity children David and Shaun Cassidy) have all called it home. Dating to 1929, the five-bedroom residence surrounds a central courtyard and carries its theme inside with stained glass windows, intricately carved wooden details, fabulous fireplaces, and a crystal chandelier. There’s an oak-paneled library, and you’ll even find bedrooms tucked in the turrets (one with a whimsical ceiling mural). It’s all undergirded with redone utilities, so rest assured that there’s nothing medieval about daily life. 

What We Love: Outside, there’s a terraced garden, with a hot tub on the upper level and a pool on the lower level, framed by mature trees, spread out over 2.43 acres of land. The house is just a few minutes from Metro-North, with a 30-minute trip into NYC.

New Jersey

What’s Here: The living is easy in this four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom condo, one of just nine residences at the new construction Candela Lofts — just one block from Trader Joe’s and the soon-to-be completed Northwest Resiliency Park.  You’ll find tons of thoughtfully designed details, big and small. The open-concept living area has a double-height ceiling, flowing into a kitchen with a wine column fridge, convection and steam ovens, and filtered sparkling water on tap. Other highlights include a full-size washer and dryer in-unit, an 850-square-foot deck with a fire pit and a grill system, and garage parking on site.

What We Love: Northwest Resiliency Park will be the biggest park in Hoboken, with six acres of athletic fields, gardens, a seasonal ice rink, a pavilion, and a playground with a slide hill. More than a recreation hub, the $90 million project will double as a critical component of the city’s climate resiliency infrastructure.

What’s Here: This nine-bedroom compound, on two-plus acres of Lake Worth Lagoon-front, epitomizes luxe Palm Beach luxury. A lengthy front drive sets the home itself far from the street, with a marvelously verdant front lawn in between. There, you can lounge under a gazebo or swim beneath the shady canopy of impressive trees. The scene inside is fittingly grand. Each room has a different personality, whether due to the columns and crown moldings of the gargantuan living room, the chandeliers hanging from the media room’s tall ceiling, or the expressive wallpaper patterns adorning the dining room.

What We Love: The experience continues around back, where there’s an awning-covered terrace for relaxation, a putting green for athletics, and a dock for boat-based adventures.

What’s Here: Invite all of your friends and family (and they can invite their friends and family) to relax at this massive ten bedroom house that’s located directly on the Gulf, as there’s plenty of room for everyone. And don’t worry about having too many cooks in the kitchen as there are two separate full-size kitchens, as well as multiple wet bars, and an outdoor grill. Outside, there’s a wooden walkway directly to the private beach, plus a pool, spa, putting green, and a porch swing. There’s even a private indoor movie theater. 

What We Love: There are panoramic views from all four floors and the bedrooms are configured with options for everybody, including multiple bunk rooms, a primary suite with its own wet bar and seating area, and bedrooms with private decks and stunning vistas.

Puerto Rico

What’s Here: Set on the peak of Guaynabo’s Tintillo Hills Estates, this grand eight-bedroom — built on just over an acre — sprawls out across more than 20,000 square feet. The foyer has its own indoor koi pond that flows between the entry area and the living and dining areas, with clear pathways that allow visitors to cross over the swimming fish on their way to the great room. The latter lives up to its name, boasting 30-foot ceilings, glass curtain walls, and more piscine wonders in the form of a centerpiece statement aquarium. The enormous kitchen is a chef’s dream and is complemented by an 800-bottle, temperature-controlled wine cellar.

What We Love: Inside, there’s a sauna for a spa day every day and a movie theater with seating for 12. Outside, there’s a pool and spa, an outdoor kitchen with a wet bar and built-in barbecue, and a full-size tennis court.

South Carolina

What’s Here: This lovely house, set on a quiet cul-de-sac in Mount Pleasant, has four bedrooms in the primary house, as well as a detached two-car garage with a spacious one-bedroom above that serves as a separate ADU. The primary suite on the ground level has a luxurious en suite bathroom and a walk-in closet with solid wood shelving. Upstairs, the three additional bedrooms have high ceilings, surround sound built in, and woven seagrass blackout shades. Plans are available for a pool placement within the lot and the backyard is nicely landscaped with room for a grill and seating, along with space for more extensive gardens and a play set. 

What We Love: The one-bedroom apartment was built in 2020 and boasts white oak floors, vaulted ceilings, and plenty of built-ins.
