From Brooklyn to the Bay Area to the British Virgin Islands, enjoy our survey of Corcoran’s most incredible listings across the country and beyond. Taking center stage this month: An unparalleled penthouse in Miami Beach, a bluestone castle in the Hudson Valley, a surreal oceanfront compound in Hawaii, and more.
New York City
What’s Here: Bold and precise craftsmanship in a five-bed Cobble Hill townhouse. The build of this home epitomizes Brooklyn, with traditional stone and wood materials coming together inside to create a thoroughly modern design. On the parlor floor, a triple-height foyer leads into a state-of-the-art kitchen that blends seamlessly into a bright living room. A private balcony extends off the primary bedroom on the second floor. Naturally, the garden level has a serene back garden, plus an outdoor kitchen with a wood pellet smoker and grill. Built from the ground up c.2016, every floor in this abode contains something to behold.
What We Love: The penthouse level of the residence has a glass-enclosed room that could function as an office… but you’ll likely be too distracted by the cityscape views (not to mention the jacuzzi) to get anything done.
What’s Here: With design by award-winners Workshop/APD, this East End compound combines rustic styles—most notably, Scandinavian Farmhouse—while maintaining a marvelous minimalist character. The main house features vaulted ceilings with exposed beams and a spiral staircase to the rooftop lounge and showstopping sunset views. There’s also a three-bed, five-car barn that is utterly all-purpose—how else could you describe a space with a potting shed, yoga studio, and home gym? A third structure, by no means the least important one, is an indoor/outdoor lounge that sits poolside across the lush lawn and comes equipped with a full kitchen, fireplace, and more.
What We Love: The Sagaponack setting is simply sumptuous. Sitting on three-plus acres, the property boasts privet hedges, cherry blossoms, and berry orchards, all bordering a sprawling 21-acre farm.
What’s Here: The duplex penthouse shining at the top of the L’Atelier complex in Miami Beach. It’s nigh impossible to ignore how impressive this home is while moving between floors via a floating staircase or glass elevator. Ceilings rise up to 22 feet in the living and dining rooms, while walls of glass allow 360 degrees worth of views from every single room—including the six lush bedrooms. Comprising two levels provides utmost privacy and ensures the only neighbor in sight will be the glistening Atlantic Ocean.
What We Love: While all the views from inside this condo are great, spying them from inside a 40-foot rooftop infinity pool is that much greater.
What’s Here: A majestic 5,000-square-foot bluestone castle set on 46.5 acres in Kingston with panoramic views of the Catskill mountains—sweeping from Mohonk all the way to High Point, Peekamoose, Slide, and Wittenberg. This four-bedroom, four-bath house was built by its owner, an expert in bluestone, and used approximately 5,000 tons of bluestone in its construction. There’s also a 200-foot underground tunnel that connects the house to a large, two-level, barn-like structure, currently used as a garage.
What We Love: In addition to the newly installed pool and separate spa, the property also includes a pond and beautiful stone walls.
What’s Here: A gorgeous waterfront property with a beautiful length of lawn that stretches from the ocean all the way up to the two Minahasa-style residences. This pair of distinctive wooden houses were crafted in Sulawesi, Indonesia, and imported to Oahu. The houses share a deck and together, include four bedrooms and three bathrooms, with each house having its own kitchen and dining area. The property is located close to the Kaneohe sandbar and it’s a great paddle board ride from the house to Mokoli’i Island.
What We Love: The warm, light-filled dining rooms with their unusual, lofted ceilings and their spectacular views of the ocean.
What’s Here: A classic three-level Queen Anne Victorian in Cole Valley, built in 1890, has been lovingly maintained by one family since the early 1960s. This historic charmer has a versatile floor plan that be adapted and configured to your needs and is currently laid out with five bedrooms, a living room, a formal dining room, a breakfast nook, a family room, a den, and a fitness room. The lower level and the main level each have a deck overlooking the garden, which is framed by a picturesque stone wall.
What We Love: The exquisite interior and exterior details that include window seats set into bay windows, elaborate moulding, tiled fireplaces, hydronic heat beneath refurbished hardwood floors, a stained glass window, a cedar-lined closet, and the turret.
British Virgin Islands
What’s Here: This luxurious property in BVI’s resort community of Oil Nut Bay, set in the rolling hillsides of the Ridge neighborhood is made up of five buildings clustered around the impressive infinity pool. One structure houses a great room, with a kitchen, dining, and living area, while each of the bedroom suites has its own pod, with a separate entrance, an en suite bathroom, and a private terrace. This pod-style living allows guests to enjoy their privacy and also to gather communally for meals and relaxation.
What We Love: All of the wide pocket doors can open completely for an unrestricted view of both the Caribbean and the Atlantic.
