From towering new developments to single-family spec homes, these remarkable properties await their first buyers to call them home. Taking center stage this month: A modern take on classic in Brooklyn Heights, a contemporary villa in the Bahamas’ Staniel Cay, a duplex in the heart of Chelsea, and a penthouse at The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach.
What’s Here: Colloquially known as Five Five Zero, this condominium complex at Chelsea’s core comprises 19 homes, including duplexes and penthouses. Of course, this particular captivating construction within is both a duplex and a penthouse, granting access to supremely prime real estate. Its ceilings soar over a double-height living room, complete with a fireplace, while the windowed kitchen comes outfitted with custom cabinetry and Pietra Cardosa countertops and appliances. The primary suite sits on the second floor, flaunting dual closets and a spa-like en-suite bath decked out in Italian Dolomite marble.
What We Love: Since the building sits between the Hudson River and the High Line, year-round scenic skyline sunsets over the former are in perfect view from either through the oversized casement windows or atop the expansive private terrace.
What’s Here: This dazzling domicile sits in the triangular, Flatiron-chic One Clinton on Cadman Park Plaza, giving residents the best of modern Brooklyn while staying true to its landmark Brooklyn Heights environs. Southern and western exposures open up views of Lower Manhattan across the East River and toward the Statue of Liberty down New York Harbor. They also allow a flood of bright natural light that creates an ambiance of unparalleled warmth when combined with the home’s bright surfaces. As outdoor space has become of paramount importance for New Yorkers, One Clinton presents a 3,500 square foot residents’ terrace, perfect for lounging, entertaining, or simply communing with neighbors.
What We Love: The state-of-the-art fitness center—complete with a yoga room, Peloton bikes, and much more—is undoubtedly fantastic, but a branch of the Brooklyn Public Library on your ground floor? That’s about as unprecedented an amenity as you’ll find.
What’s Here: Luxuriate in this three-level corner penthouse at The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach. The penthouse has three bedrooms, a family room that could be used as a fourth bedroom, and four bathrooms, with 4,157 square feet of interior space. Plus, there’s a private roof oasis with its own pool and spa, all with stunning ocean views, only accessible from this apartment.
What We Love: The residents here enjoy all the amenities of The Ritz-Carlton, including a short elevator ride down to the celebrated Sushi Sho, helmed by famed Japanese chef Keiji Nakazawa.
What’s Here: Opus Myers Park is a new development located in the heart of Myers Park, made up of 24 full-floor condominiums with no shared lobbies or hallways. This is a three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath apartment with a private terrace and direct elevator access from the garage. The five buildings are connected with an urban mews designed in the style of a European pedestrian street.
What We Love: With ten-foot ceilings and eight-foot casement windows, these apartments feel open, bright, and airy.
What’s Here: The Retreat at Seven Desert Mountain is a new and luxurious residential golf community at the foothills of the Continental Mountains. This unit has three bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and two half bathrooms, plus a living room with a fireplace. Each villa has a private entry, a two-car garage with car and golf cart charging stations, and an outdoor patio or deck.
What We Love: Seven Desert Mountain is a golfer’s paradise with seven amazing courses, but there are plenty of other facilities as well, including multiple clubhouses, restaurants, pools, tennis courts, and a 20-mile trail system for hiking and horseback riding.
What’s Here: This brand-new five bedroom, five-and-a-half bathroom house on Staniel Cay is fully furnished and sleeps up to 15 guests. The house has magnificent and unobstructed views of the beach, the creek, and the bay, as well as 3,500 feet of teak deck surrounding the villa. There are also three separate outdoor living areas, including an outdoor dining space and two lounges.
What We Love: The island of Staniel Cay is just two square miles big and part of the stunningly gorgeous Exuma Cays—this is a secluded and gorgeous place to relax and explore.
