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: a converted firehouse in Manhattan, a modern retreat in the Hudson Valley, a fully furnished residence on Sullivan’s Island, the great indoors-outdoors in the Hamptons, and a futuristic spin on the Brooklyn brownstone.
New York City
What’s Here: In its past life, this 1877 Carnegie Hill residence was a firehouse, replete with a separate stable and, later, an art gallery. Today, it’s a four-bedroom townhouse, with the former stable reimagined as a two-bedroom carriage house. Exposed brick peeks from behind arched windows, while wood-burning fireplaces and built-ins abound, lending a majestic timelessness. Lanterns light a brick courtyard where you can sit and catch up on reading or grill up a feast. A glass wall separates the dining room from a 3,000-bottle wine cellar. There’s also a library with a wet bar, a rooftop garden, and ample wall space to hang artwork.
What We Love: The carriage house, currently set up as a home office and a guest suite, presents a chance for the next owner to put their stamp on this storied property’s latest chapter.
What’s Here: A pristine West Village townhouse that’s available for the first time in 40 years. One glance inside and you’ll see why someone would want to hold on to it for that long. Follow a stately hardwood staircase across over 6,000 square feet of interior space — currently broken into three distinct units — for crown molding-topped high ceilings, a skylit top floor, and an office area bigger than most NYC living rooms. The building’s peak is literally and figuratively reached on a vast rooftop garden. Fill it up with plants and various sets of tables and chairs to form a signature space that will be the talk of the town.
What We Love: A series of alcoves that can serve as cute sitting areas, spots to display book and record collections, or whatever creative function you can devise.
What’s Here: While you won’t be able to display it on the shelf, there’s a trophy-like quality to this condo inside the coveted Superior Ink building. Its corner great room immediately catches the eye, thanks in no small part to its sheer size and sweeping views over the Hudson. For further all-encompassing vistas, peer south all the way toward the World Trade Center from a private terrace or the palatial primary suite. This western wing claims a top-of-the-line open kitchen, plus a sizable dining room and den. The home’s eastern portion claims four additional bedrooms with en-suite baths and a media room with custom built-ins, a bar, and a wine fridge.
What We Love: The building’s amenities include a fitness center with a yoga and pilates studio, a communal lounge and screening room, and a valet parking garage.
What’s Here: This four-bedroom residence, one-third of a Williamsburg triptych, casts a new mold for the classic Brooklyn townhouse. Murat Mutha of INOA Architecture — formerly of Zaha Hadid Architects and Skidmore, Owings & Merill — hewed the structure’s curving façade with distinct, rippling lines of concrete. Natural light guides you through a sleek kitchen and charming dining area toward a terraced back garden. The entire top floor can serve as a lavish primary suite, while the English basement sports floor-to-ceiling windows, a second terrace, and space for a guest room, studio, or home office.
What We Love: The private roof deck, boasting an outdoor kitchen and views across the water to the Manhattan skyline.
What’s Here: The much-coveted indoor-outdoor lifestyle is in full effect at this East Hampton estate. Step into a pavilion with ample seating centered around a 16-foot wide custom fireplace and floating hearth, which rises to meet 14-foot-high ceilings and sits next to a summer kitchen with a barbecue, refrigerator, and sink. Additionally, there is an infinity-edge saltwater pool adjacent to the pavilion and a glass-roofed atrium — both are ideal for hours spent lounging. Meanwhile, a plethora of glass doors and walls create a seamless flow to the outside and make areas like the dining room and primary bedroom feel part of the pristine landscaping.
What We Love: Get your popcorn ready because this home’s media room is ready-made for streaming away those days when you feel like staying in, complete with a projection screen and a wet bar.
What’s Here: Flourishing landscaping surrounds and even partially envelopes the façade of this Mediterranean Revival-style villa set behind a front entry gate. Step inside to experience its grand warmth, a luxe setting bathed in South Florida’s finest sunshine. Ceilings vary in styles — including coffered, tiled, and double-height — making each room feel distinct. There is an interior balcony with columns peering down from above the living room and a primary suite Juliet balcony overlooking the backyard, adding additional layers of lavishness to the home. Out back, the verdant pool area is a serenely private escape.
What We Love: The home is a shell’s throw from a bustling marina, white sand beaches, and a thriving downtown, meaning premier Palm Beach experiences are always near.
What’s Here: This gorgeous four-bedroom, five-bathroom Tuscan villa has a playful grandeur, with plenty of details to make both everyday life and special occasions feel extra special: Fun flourishes include a primary suite that boasts a wet bar, a generous walk-in closet, an awning-covered terrace overlooking the backyard, and a huge bathroom with a soaking tub. There’s also a classic foyer leading to a formal living room, a more informal family room, a wood-paneled office, plus surround sound in every room.
What We Love: The backyard is a true oasis, with a pool and spa, a full outdoor kitchen, an outdoor dining area with a fireplace, and a separate pool house, perfect to use as an art studio or as an office space.
What’s Here: Set on the southern end of Sullivan’s Island between the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean, this stylish four-bedroom takes advantage of its perfect location to showcase the best in Lowcountry living. The house has two large screened porches on two levels, a rooftop deck with a firepit and stunning water views, as well as a backyard surrounded by an eight-foot tall living fence and boasting a pool, lush landscaping, and two outdoor showers. Inside, the open-plan layout includes a chef’s kitchen with a 750-bottle wine wall, a primary suite with its own separate laundry room, and covered porches off of each bedroom.
What We Love: The home is being sold fully furnished — all of the furnishings and artwork were chosen specifically to accentuate the house’s architecture, reflecting its clean lines and chic sensibility.
What’s Here: A sleek, modern house set within 18+ wooded acres offers the best of the city and the country — this secluded home is surrounded by nature, with views of the forest from every window, yet the is just a quick drive to the stores and restaurants of western Nashville and to the boat ramps of the Cumberland River. This contemporary four bedroom is a far cry from a rustic cabin, with a true chef’s kitchen that includes two sinks, two dishwashers, a Fireclay tile backsplash, and Pushka cabinet hardware. Similar attention to detail is exhibited in every room, including the living room with its dramatic wall of windows and a freestanding fireplace.
What We Love: The residence’s outdoor spaces take advantage of the sylvan surroundings, with several expansive decks and a screened-in porch, all with plenty of seating options, including hanging pod chairs in one of the covered patios.
What’s Here: A Catskills retreat that offers every luxury necessary to get away from it all, nestled into Kerhonkson’s high-fashion Hudson Woods community. The property covers almost six acres, centered around a stunning three-bedroom house, and also boasts a separate home office (currently used as a music recording studio), a greenhouse, pool, plunge pool, hot tub, pool house, and a screened pavilion with an outdoor kitchen. Thoughtful details abound, including a Wittus wood-burning stove in the open-concept living room, radiant heating under white oak hardwood floors, dramatic built-in bookshelves in one bedroom, and a sauna.
What We Love: Live the farm-to-table lifestyle right at home with a custom greenhouse that features a dual-chamber design for climate control and an auto-watering system, plus an outdoor kitchen with a wood-burning stove and pizza oven, smoker, and grill.
