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 Hudson Valley country house complete with chickens and a flowing stream, an updated Sag Harbor cottage that retains its original 18th-century charm, a classic Mediterranean Revival in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Heights, a French Contemporary gleaming in the Palm Beach sun, a sleek apartment in Las Vegas’s City Center, and a backyard garden in Harlem—with an attached apartment, of course.
What’s Here: Shine bright like a diamond in this full-floor, extremely open plan, pre-war loft. Step off a private elevator and be greeted with abundant light, entering through floor-to-ceiling windows and expanding up 11 feet to the ceilings. Past the modern kitchen—and an area that can function as a den, office, or bedroom—the primary suite is magnificent, with a private bathroom and ample closet space.
What We Love: Prewar details, such as the ornamental designs on the original tin ceilings, really level up this home’s innate charm.
What’s Here: Don’t ever let anyone tell you that having a backyard in New York City is impossible, because you’ll find one here in the heart of Harlem. Though that may be enough to send you sprinting toward 132 West 123rd, the inside of the home itself boasts over 1,000 square feet to make your own. Included across that span are touches like a sleek kitchen, a gas fireplace, and a freestanding bathroom tub.
What We Love: The backyard garden links to an expansive living and dining area, forming a singular, metropolitan indoor-outdoor entertaining space.
What’s Here: A historic and stunning 18th century Sag Harbor home that has been lovingly renovated from top-to-bottom without compromising its original details. Still, a soapstone counter topped kitchen and a primary suite with built-ins and a walk-in closet help mold a home more suited toward the landlubber lifestyle of today. An appropriately sun-filled sunroom seamlessly merges into a lush backyard, replete with a dining patio and waterfall reflecting pool.
What We Love: Hardwood oak floors and shiplap ceilings with exposed beams conjure up memories of the sea captains of yore, who once called this whaling village home.
Listing: Mala Sander.
What’s Here: Befitting its location in a hamlet called Hampton Bays, a bay-front home with sweeping views of its neighboring body of water. Inside, find vaulted ceilings, a sun deck, and an original stone fireplace. This four-bedroom is endowed with an inherent appeal and can serve as a traditional summer getaway or be molded into the ideal year-round residence.
What We Love: Much like the Shinnecock Bay it sits on—a fact that cannot be overstated—the possibilities for this property are wide open.
Listing: Pam Jackson.
What’s Here: A wonderful, light-filled four-bedroom country house with luxury details and appliances that’s close to everything in the Hudson Valley and the Catskills, due to its location between Kingston and New Paltz. Stairs from the spacious deck lead down to a secluded stream that flows behind the house.
What We Love: The property’s lush trees, rock outcroppings, and a sylvan glade complete the home’s private and serene surroundings. Plus, if desired, the house’s current flock of chickens can be included with the house.
What’s Here: This 3,500-square-foot Piermont home boasts 75 feet of river frontage on the mighty Hudson River, with dazzling views of the water and the Palisades cliffs from nearly every room in the house. And it’s just half an hour away from Manhattan. The house’s living areas–with a possible three to five bedrooms–are designed to flow around a unique central atrium stairway.
What We Love: The riverfront backyard, protected by a brand-new seawall, has a firepit and a gracious willow tree, and is ideal for outdoor entertaining.
What’s Here: A finely crafted four-bed French Contemporary. Natural Florida sunshine makes the interior of this home gleam—follow the rays to their origin and discover perhaps the apex of indoor-outdoor living. Multiple doors lead out to a bustling backyard, either under a covered loggia or from a balcony off the primary bedroom above.
What We Love: Surrounded by scrupulously sculpted gardens, the area occupied by the negative edge pool looks ripped straight from an ad promoting idyllic Florida living.
Listing: Suzanne Frisbie.
What’s Here: Mediterranean personality meets Miami Beach panache on the Venetian Islands. If looking out onto the water is kind of your thing, this estate may be the ticket. Whether from the breathtaking backyard, inside the palatial pool, or off the primary suite’s private terrace, enjoy picturesque panoramas of the bay and the Miami skyline.
What We Love: You get more than solely a view of the water; you get direct access to the bay with a 40-foot dock on 60 feet of frontage.
Listing: Julian Johnston.
What’s Here: A three-level, three-bedroom Mediterranean Revival in the Sunset District’s Golden Gate Heights, built by quintessential San Francisco developer Henry Doelger. Beautifully remodeled, this home combines aesthetic improvements, such as a chef’s kitchen with skylights and historical tiling throughout, with practical upgrades, including earthquake retrofitting and updated electrical and plumbing.
What We Love: A large, sheltered patio, expansive family room, and an enchanting sunroom offer plenty of space to spread out and to enjoy the views of the city, ocean, and the Marin Headlands.
Listing: Donna Cooper.
What’s Here: Enjoy the spectacular views from the floor-to-ceiling windows in this spacious and sleek three bedroom unit in the middle of the action in Las Vegas’s City Center.
