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: An artful Upper East Side studio, a modern beach retreat in Montauk’s Hither Hills, a South Florida oceanfront with provenance as enviable as its location, and a perfect hillside home in Marin County County with views over San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge.
What’s Here: An iconoclast of a one-bedroom in Alphabet City—starkly contrasting the historic walk-ups most associate with the East Village—that nevertheless preserves the neighborhood’s beloved small-building charm. Unit 3B lies on the third floor of the eight-unit boutique condominium, with floor-to-ceiling windows that beckon endless natural light to bounce off its 10-foot beamed ceilings. The oversized balcony enjoys western exposure, not to mention there’s in-unit laundry.
What We Love: The modern LEICHT chef’s kitchen, appointed with stainless appliances and Caesarstone countertops.
What’s Here: A colorful pre-war studio bringing a bit of below-14th flair well uptown. It’s all accented with exposed brick, gorgeous hardwood floors, oversized windows, and other easily-loved period details. There’s a sizable, windowed kitchen that’s quite impressive for a small-but-mighty apartment, and the layout allows for easy conversion to a one-bedroom, if desired.
What We Love: It’s a top-floor unit.
What’s Here: A stunning new three-bedroom residence in a North Brooklyn landmark, located just half a block from the Greenpoint Avenue G stop. This keyed elevator unit occupies more than 3,600 square feet of the richly detailed neo-Gothic edifice (once a private clubhouse), covered with herringbone oak floors and plentiful windows distributed across four exposures. There’s a shared roof terrace with, uniquely, a private cabana for each home.
What We Love: The show-stopping gourmet kitchen, with its LaCanche range, fumed oak grey cabinetry, and bookmatched Calacatta Paonazza countertops.
What’s here: A waterside tour de force at the northwest tip of the North Haven peninsula, boasting more than 10,000 square feet of of bright, modern interior on a soaring two-acre parcel. It’s easy to imagine early-spring evenings curled up by the double-sided fireplace in the great room, flanked by dramatic Noyac Bay views and a floating staircase—along with its landing bridge—above. Out back, a pool, spa, and patio area lead towards a great lawn, with steps down to the water beyond.
What we love: The indoor basketball court, custom built-in bar, and skylit main suite with a water-facing balcony.
What’s here: A handsome new construction bordering a nature preserve that’s just a shell’s throw from the coveted beaches and trails of Hither Hills State Park. You’ll find five bedrooms, two levels of decks, and a state-of-the-art outdoor media lounge, along with ocean vistas from virtually every room. A detached garage sits across the grass from the pool, spa, and patio.
What we love: Even the shower has a view.
What’s Here: A delightful white-brick garden cottage in the Oblong Valley within earshot of a babbling brook, being offered with (for an additional cost) the neighboring 5.56-acre parcel. The charm starts well before you reach the bright-red front door, welcoming you to its cozy, 1,512 square feet with two bedrooms, a gourmet kitchen, and a bay-windowed living room. Metro-North is nearby in Wassaic, with the delights of several nearby Hudson Valley and Litchfield villages moments away.
What We Love: The spacious covered porch, which opens to the adjacent wraparound deck.
What’s Here: Some 3,000 feet of modern elegance in the Greenville/Edgemont section of Scarsdale, a short ride from Manhattan’s Grand Central Terminal up Metro-North’s Harlem Line. This classic suburban residence has been meticulously renovated with no detail overlooked, from the open-plan living area to the bedrooms upstairs.
What We Love: 1,000 flexible square feet of basement space, transformable as a media center, exercise studio, or however you feel fit.
What’s Here: An unparalleled waterfront estate by legendary Palm Beach architect John L. Volk, a Beaux-Arts alum who once competed with Addison Mizner for commissions and counts on his client list such names as DuPont, Pulitzer, and Vanderbilt. Set on two acres, the sprawling 12,800-square-foot manse enjoys 193 feet of frontage on the Atlantic Ocean and Lake Worth, boasting a new seawall and a private dock that can accommodate vessels up to 40 feet.
What We Love: The private mini-golf course and full-size swimming pools in both front and back—each have their respective water views.
What’s Here: A tropical hideaway tucked down a “secret” street in the beloved El Cid Historic District of West Palm Beach, replete with a three-bedroom Mediterranean Revival residence and a separate one-bedroom guest house. Between the two, you’ll find a heated, perfectly-symmetrical pool with a herringbone brick patio. Did we mention the full-house generator for storm season?
What We Love: A true feeling of privacy in a truly central location.
What’s Here: An eye-catching duplex right off the sands of Panama City Beach, currently configured as a two-bedroom, two-bathroom vacation rental and an additional two-bedroom, one-bath unit. It’s easy to love the colorful porched-in façade, and there’s generous storage for beach chairs and all your other fun-in-the-sun paraphernalia.
What We Love: Income-generating potential that’s always nice to have.
What’s Here: The largest penthouse residence at The Alabama, the storied former hotel on Lake Maitland that helped establish Winter Park as a fashionable getaway a century ago.

What We Love: 18 panes of wraparound window for kaleidoscopic city views you’ll never tire of.
What’s Here: A hillside four-bedroom with a truly perfect panorama in view — the pan stretches from Belvedere Island across the bay to San Francisco and over both towers of the Golden Gate Bridge as they peek above the Marin Headlands. The house itself, reached at the end of a circle drive, offers a generous 4,300 square feet with timeless Mid-Century Modern design. Additional highlights include a wine cellar, a three-car garage, and bonus space ideal for a home theater or yoga studio.
What We Love: Toasting the sunset from that balcony with a bottle from a day trip to Sonoma (which lies less than an hour away).
What’s Here: A sunny four-bedroom in Temecula wine country designed to maximize indoor-outdoor living at its finest. Inside, you’ll find an expansive open living space designed for today’s sensibilities, including a first-floor guest suite that’s equally suited for use as a home office suite.
