Corcoran’s New & Noteworthy
September 20 Edition

by Inhabit Editors

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

Enjoy our weekly survey of some of Corcoran’s best new home listings across the country. On deck this week: A classic Westchester Colonial, a contemporary refuge at “the end of the world” in Montauk, a bohemian mid-century estate in Topanga, a glass-enclosed Lower East Side triplex, and an unusual polygon house in Hawaii. 

New York City

What’s Here: A three-bedroom, three-bath triplex encased in glass on Manhattan’s celebrated Lower East Side. Directly off of a key-locked elevator entrance, the living room dynamically flows across hardwood into a renovated open kitchen, creating a seamless space for relaxing, dining, entertaining, cooking, or all of the above. Exposures to all four cardinal directions ensure consistent natural light streaming through no matter what room or level of the home it’s on.  

What We Love: The 1,200-square-foot private rooftop oasis, boasting a lap pool and outdoor kitchen.

Listing: Jill Meilus.

Asking: $9,250,000.

East End

What’s Here: Head to “The End” and craft yourself a beginning at this contemporary design in Montauk. On a Culloden Point cul-de-sac the home was constructed with its environment in mind—something evident in how it seems to blend with the land’s contours. Bamboo flooring spans the 2,800-square-foot interior, while the backyard sports a pool surrounded by bluestone decking, a pergola, lavish landscaping, and even a bocce ball court.

What We Love: The home is nestled against 174 acres of nature preserve, with access via a bridle path to an undisturbed stretch of sand on the Block Island Sound.

Listing: Peter J. Moore.

Asking: $3,250,000.

South Florida

What’s Here: Can a home truly be considered to be located in Miami Beach if it isn’t a mere wave ride away from the beach itself? Luckily, that philosophical question will be of no mind as you sit oceanfront from within this four-bed. Encompassing two units into one, this grand residence is modern and vibrant, with ample room to spread out and mold as you desire. Double living rooms, kitchens, and balconies make it a veritable playground for those who love to entertain.

What We Love: A fleet of floor-to-ceiling windows and doors invite sunlight and entice you onto the balcony for unobstructed views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Listing: Tania De Jesus.

Asking: $4,100,000.


What’s Here: A classic Westchester 1926 Colonial with five bedrooms, on one acre of land, in the charming village of Irvington. Fully updated, the house showcases a traditional floor plan, including a living room with fireplace, a dining room, and a family room on the first floor. It’s within walking distance to local schools, the town center, and Metro North, for a quick 40-minute ride to Grand Central. 

What We Love: The period details throughout, including built-ins and arched doorways, plus a storybook playhouse in the garden. 

Listing: Cindy A. Kief.

Asking: $1,699,000.

Southern California

What’s Here: A luxuriously groovy one-acre estate in bohemian Topanga includes a gorgeous 3,518 square foot, 1963 five-bedroom house; a separate one-bedroom, one-bath guest house; a tennis/basketball court; a large and fantastic pool; a greenhouse; and an outdoor play structure. Nestled in Topanga Canyon against the backdrop of the Santa Monica Mountains, this property is style central.

What We Love: The sophisticated architectural features that appear throughout the entire property, including open truss ceilings, wood-framed windows, and natural wood floors.

Listing: Joanna Steinberg and Peter Lorimer

Asking: $2,995,000.


What’s Here: This truly unusual two-story polygon-shaped house, with its 360-degree views of the mountains and the reservoir, sits on 2.5 acres of tropical splendor on the southeast shore of Kauai. The house has four bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, each with an uncommon shape and stunning views. The upper level has a wrap-around lanai, plus there’s an additional lanai downstairs.

What We Love: The verdant surroundings include rolling hills, a stream that runs through the property, and more than 20 mature fruit and nut trees. 

Listing: Joyce D. Wright Funk

Asking: $1,530,000.

Lake Tahoe

What’s Here: A brand-new three bedroom house is on the west shore of Lake Tahoe, in Cedar Shores, a new development of just six houses. The house’s contemporary architecture is quite different from many of Tahoe’s older mountain lodges, with a modern design that incorporates lots of natural light, wood and stone accents, radiant floor heating, and a gas fireplace in the living room. 

What We Love: Cedar Shores’ amenities include a shared pier, shore and beach access. 

Listing: Michael Oliver

Asking: $3,750,000.

Northwest Florida

What’s Here: A 2,658-square foot house on the shores of Choctawhatchee Bay, in Destin’s exclusive Kelly Plantation resort community. This three bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathroom home enjoys all the great amenities of Kelly Plantation, including a well-regarded golf course, tennis courts, pickleball courts, a catch-and-release pond, a pool, and a clubhouse and restaurant. 

What We Love: Kelly Plantation includes a 250-acre nature preserve with plenty of trails to explore on foot or by bike. 

Listing: Heather Moore

Asking: $899,999.
