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: A sunny Lower Manhattan penthouse, a sleek and architecturally-significant warehouse residence in South Brooklyn, a modern retreat in the Hamptons, Mission Revival elegance in South Florida, and three lavish Caribbean retreats that will make you feel like you’re on top of the world.
What’s Here: Smoked white oak floors run beneath 10-foot-high ceilings throughout this move-in ready three-bed in The Halcyon. Custom details abound throughout the Midtown East home, whether the double-paned windows, the kitchen’s Poliform-designed cabinetry, or the apartment-encompassing Sonos surround sound system. City views are always a plus, even more so when they include architectural icons like the Chrysler Building — glimpsed from the primary bed. That private space also claims walk-in and reach-in closets and a windowed ensuite boasting heated floors, a soaking tub, and a standing shower.
What We Love: The Halcyon is brimming with covetable amenities, such as a landscaped courtyard with a fire pit, a golf simulator, and a spa with a steam room and sauna.

What’s Here: Contemporary grandiosity meets parkside resplendence inside this skyward Central Park South condo. A suitably sizeable foyer welcomes you in, expanding into a grand great room. This space comprises a sleek living room and dining room in its 39-foot span and does so with breathtaking aplomb — soaring ceilings, custom millwork, and a floor-to-ceiling window wall peering across Central Park and the Upper Manhattan skylines on either side. One57 is one of Manhattan’s tallest residential structures with the amenities to match such a distinction, including an art studio, a screening room, and an indoor pool with triple-height ceilings.
What We Love: The primary suite offers the chance to spy even more jaw-dropping views without leaving the comforts of bed.

What’s Here: Penthouse living atop a c.1885 structure in the SoHo-Cast Iron Historic District. Share this one-bedroom home with copious natural light — the lowest of the low-maintenance roommates — as it glides into the 11-foot-high living room through floor-to-ceiling windows and enters the dining room via triple French doors and a high-angle transom window. The primary bedroom spans the building’s entire width a level above, containing an extra-large dressing room and a marble-clad bath featuring a soaking tub and double-glass-door shower. Another level up awaits a private roof deck sporting an outdoor kitchen and 360-degree views of the city.
What We Love: The building is not just historic but award-winning, receiving a Lucy G. Moses Preservation Award from the New York Landmarks Conservancy in 2022.

What’s Here: A collaboration in design between Jonathan Marvel and Jean Won Mosler on the Carroll Gardens and Gowanus borderline. Behind a purple brick façade and pink front door, this residence comprises two warehouses centered around an open-air atrium. One portion contains a sprawling gallery, living, and entertaining area. Another section functions as a massive art workshop. Above, a penthouse-like suite supplies a private escape with south-facing terrace views. Yet, the home is moldable to individual vision, with recent rezoning affording an additional 15,000-plus buildable square feet and the possibility for a live/work scenario.
What We Love: Though breathtakingly contemporary, the c.1931 residence retains its industrial character with an expansive floorplan, ceilings towering as high as 20 feet, ample skylights, and exposed wooden beams.

What’s Here: A mecca of modernity beside the Bridgehampton water. This 6-bed has private access to Sam’s Creek and Mecox Bay for kayaking and paddleboarding while sitting a short trip down Ocean Road to the Atlantic Ocean. Steal sunset views from behind glass walls or one of three decks in the primary suite. That at-home escape inhabits the second floor, a space shared under vaulted ceilings by an open-plan living/dining/kitchen area. Encompassing a snapshot-worthy backyard is a heated pool and spa surrounded by a porcelain patio and an expansive lawn, with private catwalk access to the creek.
What We Love: Overlooking the backyard is a covered porch adding tremendous amounts of flair to indoor-outdoor living, sporting a pergola with a retractable glass and shade roof, retractable screen walls, heaters, and an outdoor kitchen.

What’s Here: A study in relaxed luxuriousness from this Delray Beach cottage. The property dates to 1925, when it comprised a one-bedroom Mission Revival house and a guest cottage. An extension brought those together into a single three-bedroom home by the current owner — an interior designer — who gut renovated both, merging historic flair with modern conveniences. Throughout, find white walls accented by bronze window frames and French oak wide plank flooring running below tall ceilings, all accented by organic textures and finishes. Peak indoor-outdoor flow is achieved thanks to a wide-open layout and glass walls that allow every room to overlook the marble back patio, heated saltwater pool, and custom-lit gardens.
What We Love: A private library and a home office/studio make this South Florida treat all the more sweet.

What’s Here: A spacious eight-bedroom house in WaterSound Beach celebrates indoor-outdoor living with seven porches strategically placed around the residence and an eight-foot rain wall that cascades into the oversized pool. The house was built in 2018 and blends contemporary style — shiplap walls, oak floors, and custom wood moldings — with 200+ year-old reclaimed ceiling beams to create a relaxed atmosphere with room for the whole gang to live and play.
What We Love: There’s also a two-bedroom apartment with kitchenette and living room atop the two-car garage.

What’s Here: New construction five-bedroom in Green Hills combines striking modern architecture with every amenity imaginable. There’s a gorgeous kitchen with a separate hidden butler’s kitchen — following the latest in kitchen trends, allowing for the front kitchen to serve as a plating and serving station in the open-plan living area and the back kitchen as the place for messy cooking, or simply as a way to double the cooking space at home. Plus, there’s a seven-foot wine cooler, to make sure there’s plenty of drinks on hand. There’s also a floating staircase or elevator to ascend to the second and third floors, with a bonus room on the top level.
What We Love: In addition to the rooftop deck, the backyard has a pool with a hot tub, an outdoor kitchen, and a dining fire table surrounded by irrigated turf.

What’s Here: A spacious contemporary four-bedroom, five-bathroom house in the popular neighborhood of Hilltop has plenty of room for everyone to work and play. The open and bright sunken living room has beamed ceilings and several access points to the wrap-around deck and the spacious kitchen with Sub-Zero and Miele appliances has a pass-through window as well as opening directly to the dining area for ease of serving meals and snacks. There’s also a rec room with a projector and screen for movie nights!
What We Love: Lots of thoughtful extras makes this house easy to live in, including a home office with built-in floor-to-ceiling shelves and a rolling library ladder, plus a primary suite with its own private deck, an enormous walk-in closet, and a spa bathroom with a soaking tub and steam shower. The nicely landscaped backyard has plenty of seating and a Jacuzzi for soaking under the stars.

What’s Here: A modern take on a California Craftsman, this four bedroom in Alamo is sited on almost two acres at the end of a private drive and boasts unobstructed views of Mt. Diablo. The house is built around a central open-air courtyard that is encircled by the living room, the kitchen (with its own dine-in breakfast area), the dining room, and a sunken game room. A home office and the primary suite completes the ground floor. On the upper level, you’ll find the three additional bedroom suites and a sitting area.
What We Love: The extensive grounds include an outdoor kitchen, a two-level dining area, as well as a treehouse that’s big enough to double as a yoga studio, meditation space, or an elevated al fresco dining room.

What’s Here: Discover a truly private retreat in this 8,000-square-feet five-bedroom house on two lots totaling 5.6 acre in Cabo Rojo, famed for its beaches and nature preserves on Puerto Rico’s southwest coast. Each of the five bedrooms has its own balcony overlooking the Laguna de Joyuda and the Mona Passage — the perfect spot to watch the spectacular coastal sunsets. There’s an indoor garden with a koi pond, multiple fruit trees spread throughout the property, and a terrace with a large pool and an outdoor bar. The property also has top-of-the-line security, satellite internet, its own generators, and an off-the-grid well.
What We Love: Though the property is surrounded by forests and water, with unpopulated views in every direction, it’s actually in a relatively central location: it’s just a 15-minute drive to the Boqueron or Buye beaches or a five-minute drive to Mayagüez Mall.

What’s Here: Constellations is a dramatic villa perched on the slopes of Oil Nut Bay, with a facade of sliding glass walls that create a seamless transition between the magnificent views and the interior. There are four bedroom suites, each directly facing the sea, with the house’s signature sliding glass walls opening onto private terraces. In addition to the bedrooms, there’s an open-concept living and dining space, with the entirety of the living space covering a total of 4,470 square feet—all oriented toward the gorgeous vistas.
What We Love: There’s no shortage of spectacular outside space here, with a saltwater pool, a hot tub, an outdoor kitchen and bar, and two outdoor shower pavilions as part of the house, as well as a nature trail leading to a private beach with its own bathhouse.

What’s Here: This estate is made up of a stunning pair of two villas in the Domaine de Pogamus community in Lurin, with a magnificent view of the St. Jean Bay. Each villa has its own entrance and can be either kept separate or combined into one stunning property. The first villa has three bedrooms, a terrace, a garden, and a heated infinity pool, while the second villa has two bedrooms and its own heated infinity pool and terrace. Both are designed in the same chic style, with an emphasis on natural materials.
What We Love: In true St. Barth style, many of the rooms have fully retractable sliding glass walls, so that bedrooms and living spaces can be completely opened to the outdoors, with little differentiation between the interior and the glorious exteriors.
