August 30 Edition

by Inhabit Editors

Get an early peek at some of our agents’ favorite new property listings in New York City, the Hamptons, California, St. Barth, and beyond.

Enjoy our weekly survey of some of Corcoran’s best new home listings across the country. On deck this week: Top-notch form and comfort in the Hamptons, a verdant waterside dwelling in Palm Beach Gardens, an oceanfront mid-century marvel in Honolulu, a penthouse overflowing with prestige in Greenwich Village, and a St. Barth’s villa overlooking a lagoon.

New York City

What’s Here: A rare penthouse condo at Devonshire House, a masterwork of architectural legend Emery Roth (whose work, among other credits, helped to shape the iconic Central Park West skyline). Though inside a structure of significant provenance, the home itself offers flexibility for modern life—one of the four bedrooms can be a spacious home officeAmidst hardwood floors, high ceilings, and natural light swirling through its two floors, you’d be hard-pressed to find a space more elegant.

What We Love: The top floor has access to a private, wraparound, outdoor terrace—with a garden—adding a certain freshness to city living and heaping another layer of prestige onto this address.

Listing: Felix Aguirre and Gregory Civers.

Asking: $8,450,000.

East End

What’s Here: The quintessence of custom construction “out east.” Every inch of this William Pollock design was intricately plotted out during a two-plus year process—from conception to completion—and it shows. Top-notch form and comfort nestle into vibrant Hamptons greenery, with five bedrooms, five-and-a-half baths, home office space, and an open living-dining-kitchen area spread out across 6,000 square feet of interior.

What We Love: An outdoor space that steals the show. Superlatives are earned by an outdoor kitchen and dining area, spots to lounge either covered or soaking up the sun, and a swimming pool that looks science-fiction but is so very real and luxurious. It makes the perfect place to relax in—or show off to others—your Hamptons haven. 

Listing: Susan Breitenbach.

Asking: $8,995,000.

South Florida

What’s Here: Abundant space inside and out. Feeling active? Take advantage of the over 550 square feet exercise room. Need a literal higher perspective on things? Pull up a lounge chair on the upper level’s outdoor balcony. Elaborate meal to fix up? The kitchen offers near-360 degrees of cooking and preparation space. Fancy a swim? Naturally, there’s a pool. Sitting beside—and with a dock on— the Intracoastal Waterway, get all you can out of South Florida life without ever leaving home.

What We Love: Enveloped in green space, this home flawlessly illustrates the “gardens” portion of Palm Beach Gardens

Listing: Jennifer Hyland.

Asking: $15,750,000.

Southern California

What’s Here:  This contemporary four-bedroom in Studio City, across from Weddington Park, has a well-designed floor plan that maximizes both communal and private spaces. On the ground level, an open-concept layout incorporates a blended living and dining room with the kitchen. Sliding doors open into the outdoor living area, which has a pool with a spa and a grill. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. 

What We Love: The primary suite has vaulted ceilings, a fireplace, a walk-in closet, and an extra-large bathroom with a dual sinks, a soaking tub and spacious shower.

Listing: Peter Lorimer.

Asking: $2,395,000.


What’s Here: A spectacular four-bedroom Balinese-style home in the eastern Honolulu neighborhood of Kahala, which stretches from Diamond Head to the Pacific Ocean. Built in 1964, the estate has a beautiful mid-century lanai that connects the pool area to the indoors. Each bedroom has an en suite bathroom and there’s a family room with a pool table and bar. 

What We Love: The outdoor space is a veritable oasis, with a large koi pond, waterfall, tropical landscaping, and an oceanfront pool with spa.

Listing: Stephen Cipres.

Asking: $8,990,000.

St. Barth

What’s Here: This charming three-bedroom villa overlooks the lagoon of Grand Cul de Sac. The house opens with sliding glass doors onto the pool and terrace on one side and with wooden Bahamas shutters and louvered doors on the other side, creating a seamless mélange of indoor and outdoor living. 

What We Love: The ability to completely open up two opposite sides of the living room allows for a cross-breeze and gorgeous views of both the land and sea.

Listing: Guillaume de Corlieu.

Asking: €4,750,000.

Northwest Florida

What’s Here: A Tuscan-inspired villa in Destin with five bedrooms and a designer kitchen is divided among two buildings, separated by a courtyard with a pool.

There’s also a rec room with a bar for movie nights or relaxing.
