Get an early peek at some of our agents’ favorite new property listings in New York City, the Hamptons, South Florida, and beyond.
Enjoy our weekly survey of Corcoran’s best new home listings across the country. On deck this week: A skyward Carnegie Hill condo, a storybook Carpenter Gothic in Rhinebeck, an enormous estate on three separate Water Mill waterfronts, a tranquil retreat from the bustle near Greenwich Village, and a two-bedroom right beyond the center field bleachers in Wrigleyville.
What’s Here: A corner Carnegie Hill condo right off of Park Avenue. With expansive windows and soaring 13-foot ceilings soaring all the way up on the 16th floor, this three-bed embraces natural light and provides unbeatable skyline and city views. The open living and dining room area soaks up all that ambient warmth and is perfect for entertaining purposes.
What We Love: Each bedroom boasts an individual loft that can be employed for multiple purposes, be it sleeping, storage, or home office space.
What’s Here: Located in the St. Mark—a full-service cooperative—and right off of St. Mark’s—a full-service East Village thoroughfare—this charming one-bedroom outfitted with an updated kitchen and ample storage space. On location alone, this home is unmatched: a tranquil retreat enticingly close to the best of Manhattan between 14th and Houston streets.
What We Love: A private terrace ready-made for dining, reading, napping, and more, sometimes all within the same day.
Listing: Karen Paneggiante.
What’s Here: A duplex, two glorious levels renovated by renowned interior designer John Willey, in the heart of Brooklyn Heights. Underneath coffered ceilings, find plentiful space for all you need, plus coveted commodities like tons of closets, abundant sunlight, and central air. There is also inherent flexibility, as four bedrooms and an office can readily become five bedrooms or vice versa.
What We Love: This residence provides a facsimile of a perhaps more suburban house lifestyle a mere half-block away from the Brooklyn Promenade.
What’s Here: A waterfront compound, looking as big as an aircraft carrier, resulting from a collaboration between architects Barnes Coy, builders Sagewood Construction, and designer Massimo Castagna. With floor-to-ceiling glass walls throughout its 11,000 square feet, there is a waterfront vista visible from nearly every room. Exterior area is also in abundance, as a 3,100-square-foot stone terrace with an outdoor kitchen sets the stage for alfresco dining and alfresco lounging. Oh, and did we mention the elevator, six-car garage, private dock, and tennis court?
What We Love: We heard you liked water, so here’s a home with an infinity pool that’s shoreside of Channel Pond and overlooks both the Atlantic Ocean and Mecox Bay. You know, so you can be in the water while you’re on the water overlooking the water in Water Mill.
Listing: Gary DePersia.
What’s Here: A gated estate on over two elegant acres. If your personal enjoyment scale between indoor and outdoor life falls right in the middle, this house could be your ideal. Inside, a stunning double staircase in the foyer forms an archway to a dazzling double-height great room, one of many superlative entertaining spaces. Outside, the radiant patio features a grilling station, multiple dining areas, a heated pool and spa, and courts for tennis and basketball.
What We Love: Indoor-outdoor life achieves its ideal in the primary suite, where a grand bathroom with a tub and skylight meets a private terrace overlooking the remarkable property.
What’s Here: A picturesque four-bedroom Carpenter Gothic, built c.1858, located in Hudson Valley’s equally picturesque village of Rhinebeck. The house’s storybook charm includes the gaily painted gingerbread trim that frames the wraparound porch, as well as the pointed-arch windows and multiple gables. Inside, the house retains its original wide plank floors and 9’ foot ceilings on the first floor.
What We Love: There’s plenty of room inside, including a double parlor, and upstairs, three bedrooms, plus a fourth bedroom that could alternatively be used as a library, office, or family room.
What’s Here: A contemporary six-bed, six-and-a-half-bath home a wave’s ride away from the Intracoastal Waterway in West Palm Beach. Double-height living areas provide a grand and luxurious character to the interior. At the same time, palm trees and verdant landscaping make for a pool area that feels like it was plucked right out of a resort.
What We Love: Plentiful floor-to-ceiling windows will make it obvious in no time why they call Florida the “Sunshine State.”
Listing: Suzanne Frisbie.
What’s Here: An impeccably designed five-bedroom with private access to the walking trails of Cornell Park. There is a stately air to this home, with hardwood and marble flooring and various touches, such as the elegant chandelier over the hardwood-step staircase. The backyard offers a serene space, whether beneath the shade of a palm tree, within the heated saltwater pool, or on the screened-in patio.
What We Love: A welcoming wraparound front porch makes for the perfect ‘round-the-clock relaxation spot.
Listing: Jennifer Kilpatrick.
What’s Here: A five-bedroom beach house on Florida’s Emerald Coast, a bright and inviting space is centered around the resort-style pool. With shiplap accents, hardwood floors, and a pair of fun built-in bunk beds in one of the upstairs bedrooms, this jaunty home is just a 10-minute stroll to the beach.
What We Love: This is an entertainer’s dream dwelling—in addition to the chef’s kitchen indoors, there’s also a beverage center, complete with a sink, a wine refrigerator and a regular mini-fridge. And outside, there’s a built-in grill and a smoker.
Listing: Hilary Farnum-Fasth.
What’s Here: A renovated two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo in the friendly confines of Wrigleyville. The unit includes two parking spaces, a game day amenity worth bragging about. Brand-new solid oak floors and new sub-floors, updated kitchen and bathrooms, and new windows give the apartment the vintage look, without the vintage creaks.
What We Love: At one end of the house, an east-facing sunroom is ideal for a home office, while at the other end, an oversized balcony has enough space for a grill and outdoor meals.
Listing: Kelly Smith.
What’s Here: A large, well-designed five-bedroom house perched in Golden Gate Heights, up the hill from the Inner Sunset. The primary bedroom suite has a deck, walk-in closet, and a bathroom with a heated floor and skylight, all of which connect to an office area with a view of the city. The expansive kitchen has two wall ovens, lots of storage, and a double sink with a greenhouse window looking into the back yard.
What We Love: The terraced garden has a comfortable seating area at the bottom, with doors opening from the kitchen and dining area.
Listing: Steve Dells.
What’s Here: A lovely three-bedroom house surrounded by forty acres of incredible wide-open outdoor space, located in Reno’s Palomino Valley. The acreage is perfect for horses, ATVs, and motorcycles. There’s also a detached greenhouse in the garden (great for growing your own vegetables) and a large barn on the property.
What We Love: Relaxing in the tranquil gardens, wraparound porch, and pool next to the house.
Listing: Daphine MacLean.
What’s Here: Almost six pastoral acres with a beautiful single-level, three-bedroom house in Honoka’a, the gateway to Hawaii’s Hamakua Coast. Enjoy indoor/outdoor living with a bathroom that opens to an outdoor shower, surrounded with a rock wall for privacy, or enjoy dinner out on the newly built lanai with panoramic ocean views. The property has high-speed fiber optic lines and a cell phone booster to keep you connected.
What We Love: With a freshwater pond stocked with tilapia, a chicken coop, livestock fencing, and fruit trees, this is the Hawaiian farm (and farm-to-table) living at its finest.
