Enjoy our weekly survey of Corcoran’s best new home listings across the country. On deck this week: An elegantly detailed parkside apartment on the Upper East Side, a Mediterranean estate you can meet in Temecula, a barn-turned-beach house in Amagansett, a modern Miami marvel, and a domed oasis tucked among the California redwoods.
What’s Here: A tranquil, sun-drenched duplex penthouse in the clouds. You’d never guess this strikingly modern residence lies in the Machinery Exchange, formerly the horse stables for the neighboring NYPD building. Spanning close to 3,000 square feet, it offers three bedrooms, 11-foot-high timber beamed ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, a brushed steel staircase, and two kitchens.
What We Love: An additional 1,600 square feet outdoors in the form of a lushly-landscaped wraparound terrace.
What’s Here: A charming duplex in a historic (c.1857) Chelsea building seen in the pages of Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, and more. This two-bedroom unit boasts an expansive parlor level with lofty ceilings, two wood-burning fireplaces, and a sleek galley kitchen outfitted with walnut cabinetry.
What We Love: The parlor floor opens out onto a secluded, serene, south-facing terrace.
What’s Here: A richly detailed co-op in the storied Brisbane House, designed in 1926 by consummate New York hotel architects Schultze & Weaver—they’re behind the Pierre, Sherry Netherland, and Waldorf Astoria, to drop a few names. The three-bedroom, three-exposure home (north, east, and west) occupies an entire floor, offering a cozy living room, elegant dining room, and an opulent primary suite.
What We Love: Unbeatable Central Park views through eight picture windows.
Listing: Barbara Brewster.

Set where Williamsburg and Bed-Stuy meet, this nearly 1,200-square-foot unit at the Chocolate Factory blends Brooklyn’s past and present with serious style. You’ll find 13-foot ceilings, reclaimed industrial materials, and a sleek gourmet kitchen.
What We Love: A vast, private outdoor space, a truly rare companion for a loft space of this scale to have.
What’s Here: Travel up a long, gated driveway to arrive at this grand estate, ideally located on two private, peaceful acres in Southampton. One block from the ocean and a shell’s throw away from town, this home features eight bedrooms, a wrapping terrace, a finished lower level, and a separate pool house.
What We Love: The handsome wood-paneled library, complete with a fireplace, makes for a study straight out of a story.
Listing: Susan Breitenbach.
What’s Here: A historic barn transformed into a modern, two-story home; the perfect Amagansett beach house. Three beds, three baths, a state-of-the-art kitchen, and a heated pool surrounded by manicured grounds complete this home.
What We Love: An outdoor kitchen, grill, and back patio make for perfect poolside cooking and dining conditions.
Listing: Erin Keneally.
What’s Here: An updated historic property on almost six acres near Kingston. The main house is a two-story, 2,400 square feet ranch, with three bedrooms, two baths, an attached family/media room, and a spacious outdoor dining patio.

What We Love: The dream live-work arrangement for whatever moves you.

What We Love: That delightful courtyard, set among grand oak trees and completed by a summer kitchen and plunge pool.
What’s Here: A bright, open-concept home that has been gorgeously updated and refined. Right in Boca’s Wind Drift estates, it boasts four bedrooms, vaulted wood-plank ceilings, and can’t-miss lakeside views.
What We Love: A covered outdoor space that makes open-air entertaining an all-year possibility.
Listing: Courtney Knopf.

What We Love: The incredible landscaping, with its fountain and cascading rivulet—the perfect backdrop for entertaining.
