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 colorful two-bedroom in Upper Manhattan, a glassy East Hampton beach house, an 18th-century charmer in one of the Hudson Valley’s most sought-after cities, and a meticulous South Florida oceanfront.
What’s Here: The kind of gleaming condominium you usually only see on the glossy pages of a magazine. Sitting atop the historic Merchants House Condominium on North Moore Street, this four-bed, four-bath triplex is impeccably renovated with enticing amenities. With 4,100 square feet, three levels, and 16-foot high ceilings, this home allows you plenty of space to perfect your base in the Triangle Below Canal Street.
What We Love: The glass-enclosed spaces overlooking the bright living area, a refreshing take on the home office.
What’s Here: A vibrant corner unit in the Morningside Gardens cooperative complex. Upon crossing the threshold into this home, you’ll be bathed in a warm ambiance fostered by high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows. Basking in that glow are two bedrooms with ample closet space, a newly renovated bathroom, and a custom kitchen complete with blue cabinetry and detailed tiling.
What We Love: Among many other amenities, if you want to fill your home with some genuinely original artwork, the building offers a professional ceramic and woodworking shop.
What’s Here: The top-floor corner penthouse of your very specific, home-centric dreams. This converted factory loft is rife with pre-war charms: exposed brick, original wood beams and ceilings, and oversized factory windows that invite natural light in. Adding modernity are touches like a gas fireplace, spa baths, and completely redone oak flooring throughout. You even get a swing!
What We Love: The 11 oversized factory windows that bathe this home in natural light from sunrise to sunset.
What’s Here: A refined, modern estate nestled on a picturesque acre in the Hamptons. Inside and out, this property gets the most out of its space: six distinctive bedrooms, expansive limestone patios, wine cellar and home theater on the lower level, outdoor kitchen for al fresco dining, and more.
What We Love: An entire wellness wing that includes a full gym, massage room, and bathroom with a steam shower.
What’s Here: Incredible blue views in every room. Completely redeveloped in 2016, this stunning Shelter Island retreat basks in natural light and timeless laid-back elegance. There’s a double-height living area, a brass and mahogany-accented kitchen, and five bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms—a separate barn functions as a three-car garage with a one-bedroom apartment atop it.
What We Love: A private deep-water dock on West Neck Harbor, off Peconic Bay.
What’s Here: A beautiful and charming Colonial-style home that is truly a piece of history. Built in 1810, 351 Elm Road was the first house built in incorporated Briarcliff Manor. It offers four bedrooms, a formal living room that showcases massive Georgian windows, a home office, and a spacious backyard with heated pool.
What We Love: The beautiful French Doors that open to the magnificently landscaped outdoor space.
Listing: Alexandra Shaw.
What’s Here: A c.1723 historic masterpiece that miraculously survived the British burning of Kingston, which briefly served as the first capital of New York State. Ideally located in the heart of the Stockade District (or “Uptown Kingston”), this charming five-bedroom home boasts original beams and hardware, a lovely back patio, and parking space for four cars. Unlike the Royal Army, however, this central location simply can’t be beat.
What We Love: It’s a conjoined home, offering full-residential and residential-commercial possibilities.

What We Love: An oceanside office to upgrade your “work from home” setting to a new level.
What’s Here: Indoor and outdoor life in perfect coastal harmony. Up hardwood staircases, the primary suite features abundant closet space, a marble bathroom, and a covered balcony imploring you to watch many a sunset. Meanwhile, a covered loggia—complete with a summer kitchen—makes for the perfect locale for open-air, poolside entertaining. A trip down toward the water reveals an exclusive dock with a boat lift, providing direct access to Lake Ida.
What We Love: The beach is just minutes away.
