Looking for a home in or around New York City can take a lot of work. Throw in multiple bedrooms and outdoor space, and it’s not a stretch to imagine a $1 million-plus price tag alongside. However, these seven charming abodes in the Corcoran network — including a Nyack mid-century modern masterpiece, a historic Manhattan co-op, and a five-acre Hudson Valley artist’s house — prove that living the good life doesn’t mean breaking the bank.
New York City
This tranquil two-bedroom in Washington Heights is part of the historic Hudson View Gardens, a c.1920s Tudor Revival co-op inspired by garden city-style urban planning — for evidence, look no further than the complex’s five-plus acres of greenery. The home astounds with its restored original wood flooring. Its spacious living room sports a built-in bookcase, while the kitchen claims custom cherrywood cabinetry and a windowed dining area. Retreat to the primary bedroom for this home’s most spectacular feature: west-facing vistas across the Hudson River to the picturesque Palisades. However, residents of the second bedroom shouldn’t feel left out: they’ll enjoy views over the complex’s aforementioned verdant gardens.

The mid-century modern architect Charles Winter left a legacy of stylish marvels throughout Rockland County and the neighboring Orange and Bergen Counties. But it’s in Nyack, where Winter lived, that his houses are most well-known — this gorgeous light-filled five/six-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom stunner spanning four floors is one of several Winter residences on prestigious Tweed Boulevard. Expanded in the 1990s by Michael Esmay, one of Winter’s protégés, the 5,500-plus square-foot house sits on .59 acres and is minutes to the center of Nyack and Piermont or under a half-hour drive to New York City. The house is a dream for readers, philosophers, and artists. In addition to the expected living and dining rooms, there are multiple library, office, or studio spaces — with walls of built-in bookshelves. This is the first time the house has ever been on the market since it was built in 1967.
