Enjoy our monthly survey of incredible listings across the Corcoran network. Highlights in this edition: A bayfront Hamptons beauty, two terrace-forward Manhattan apartments, a custom South Florida fresh build, a modern Hudson Valley country house with midcentury vibes, and an enchanting flat in the heart of Italy’s Verona — complete with bedroom frescoes.
What’s Here: Timelessness abounds at this Tribeca triplex. This c.1868 neo-Grec building is a brick, stone, and cast iron living legend of the area’s store and loft past. Among this penthouse’s enduring interior elements are beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, skylights, and wood-burning fireplaces. Each tier of the home allows one to expand into their ideal lifestyle across 5,000 total square feet, whether it’s the lowermost level’s 50-foot-long living room, the primary suite encompassing an entire main level wing, or the atrium-style upper level. And that’s all without mentioning the marvelously excessive number of closets, a true amenity for NYC life.
What We Love: City vistas from four different perspectives, thanks to a quartet of terraces. Start the day with morning coffee off the primary bedroom and end the night toasting a cocktail across the main level, just outside the living and dining room. The top level’s northern and southern roof decks provide views spanning the city skyline — including One World Trade Center, the Woolworth Building, and the Jenga-like 56 Leonard.
What’s Here: Wrap around this Carnegie Hill condo’s perimeter atop a patio with enough sprawl to sit, entertain, eat, and hone your idealized home vision. This vast outdoor area underscores the interior’s grandeur, a three-into-one floorplan where natural light spills through towering windows and over resplendent, diagonally-set hardwood. Ceilings rise to skyscraping heights, particularly in the living room and the home office. The latter has a distinguished aura, flaunting handsome built-ins, detailed moldings, and a gas fireplace. Privacy is tucked into this home’s five bedrooms, including a primary and a lofted space — each with direct patio access.
What We Love: Park Avenue Court — once an uptown Gimbels branch, now sporting a newly redone 50-foot-ceiling lobby — boasts a suite of on-site amenities such as an indoor swimming pool, a gym and yoga room, a parking garage, and storage facilities.
What’s Here: This East Quogue home’s double-height living room is quintessential, with voluminous natural light flowing through two tiers of glass and up to a vaulted, beamed ceiling. The soaring area, overlooked via a second-floor balcony, boasts Ionic columns, a fireplace, and serene bay views. With the living room as its epicenter, the two-level home divides into four wings, each culminating in front and back rotundas — including a sun room and multiple bedrooms. Become one with the scenery in the backyard, whether under the covered patio, swimming in the gunite pool, cooking in the outdoor kitchen, or unwinding in the outdoor shower.
What We Love: The home’s primary bedroom suite exudes personal luxuriousness, encompassing an upper level wing with a spa-worthy bath at one end and a sitting room opening to a bayfront balcony at the other. In between, find copious closets and a fireplace to up the private retreat feelings.
What’s Here: A striking, single-story, three-bedroom house in Hudson Valley’s Red Hook was inspired by traditional Japanese architecture and sits on 21 acres of secluded woodlands. There’s a wrap-around deck with access to the Japanese garden near the front entryway, a spacious lawn and small patio on one side, or a steep drop off that overlooks a meandering stream. The house has a truly open floor plan that gives the interiors a loft-like feel, and there are solar panels and a three-car garage with a Tesla charger.
What We Love: The details in this house really make it stand out: There’s the shou sugi ban, or yakisugi, wood siding that offer both weatherproofing and bug control; an orange two-sided fireplace that divides the kitchen and dining area from the living space; and a soaking tub next to glass walls with views of the surrounding woods for the ultimate in forest bathing.
What’s Here: A grand six-bedroom, six-bathroom (and one powder room) estate in Old Greenwich is a stone’s throw away from the beach at Tod’s Point and the village. The house has stunning water views, access to a private beach and a deep-water dock, as well as boasting its own heated pool and a patio with a retractable awning and a gas fire pit. The second floor is entirely given over to five of the six bedrooms, creating a separation between public and private spaces. The majestic primary suite has a sleeping area and a sitting area, an enormous walk-in closet with a separate oversized dressing room, a spa-style bathroom, and a private balcony.
What We Love: The extras in this house are really fun, including an amazing home movie theater has seven lie-flat seats, complete with a wet bar and a concession counter and a professional gym. One of the guest bedrooms is a custom bunk room — ideal for a full house at the holidays or sleepover parties — as well as lots of flex space that can be configured as home offices or playrooms.
What’s Here: A Coral Gables new construction set among botanical garden-evoking environs. The home’s outdoor space forms a tranquil haven with shaded lounges, an al fresco dining area, and a summer kitchen — all encircling a cerulean swimming pool. There’s a seamless flow to the interior, where the home’s originality really shines through in thoughtful design touches like the accent wall foregrounding the floating staircase and the minimalist kitchen island stovetop. Between two living spaces, the formal and casual dining quarters, the media room, and more, you’ll never want for ways to customize the day.
What We Love: Exterior-facing walls are nearly all gone in favor of floor-to-ceiling glass, meaning an enduring natural warmth permeates the 10,000-plus square feet. Particularly in the home’s bedrooms, the all-encompassing windows make it feel as though you’re nestled into a tropical tree canopy.
What’s Here: A mountain-style chalet — rendered with sleeker, urban lines — in Marin County boasts three bedrooms and two bathrooms and stunning views from Mt. Tamalpais all the way to San Anselmo. Fittingly, this house in Corte Madera, named for the chopping of its abundant redwood tree lumber, has redwood accents throughout, including unusual, angular vaulted ceilings that frame the oversized windows allowing for an abundance of natural light. There’s a dual-faced fireplace that provides warmth to both the living and dining room, as well as an additional fireplace in the family room, offering plenty of space for everyone to gather.
What We Love: The large deck is accessible from the great room as well as the primary bedroom, and there are a couple of bonus rooms tucked in cozy spots around the house, which can be used for home offices or studio space for artists or yoga practitioners.
What’s Here: This three-level, two-bedroom, three-bathroom flat in the heart of fair Verona is an extraordinarily charming blend of historical style and modern comfort. On the ground floor is the living room and a chic, modern kitchen, both topped with exposed wood beam ceilings. From the kitchen, stairs lead down to the stone cellar with its vaulted ceilings and stone walls — perfect for a wine collection. On the upper level, there are two bedrooms, each with exposed wood beam ceilings and decorated with frescoes.
What We Love: The building is a lovely example of Veronese architecture, with a central and verdant courtyard surrounded by a loggia on all four sides, windows with green wooden shutters and external balconies — just right for a moonlit, romantic soliloquy.
