Open House Weekend Report: February 8-10

Get up close and personal with Corcoran during one of our favorite home tours in New York City, the Hamptons, and South Florida.

Have plans for the weekend? You do now. Wherever you are—in the city, out on the East End, or catching some rays in South Florida—put a Corcoran open house on your calendar. Among this week’s picks, a stately corner townhouse in Harlem’s beloved Strivers Row area, a Williamsburg condo with an uncommon view, and a prewar charmer in Queens that’s just one stop from the site of the new Amazon HQ.

Manhattan

218 West 139th Street, Harlem

Friday, 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.

218 West 139th Street, Harlem

What’s here: Priced at $3,650,000, this 1893 corner townhouse in the history-rich Strivers Row section of Harlem features 2 units on four floors — an owner’s five-bed/three-bath triplex and a garden-level one-bed/one-bath apartment).
What we love: In engraved capital letters, a stone pillar outside this townhouse reads: “Private Drive: Walk Your Horses.” It’s one of many delightful details that illuminate the provenance of this glorious home — a corner masterpiece with south, north, and west exposures and private parking for as many as four vehicles, horse-drawn or otherwise.

Brooklyn

144 North 8th Street, Apartment 10B, Williamsburg
Sunday, 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.

144 North 8th Street, Apartment 10B, Williamsburg

What’s here: Priced at $1,899,000, this 1,200-square-foot condo features two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a kitchen with polished concrete countertops and appliances by Sub-Zero and Bertazzoni. The asking price also includes a private parking spot.
What we love: Morning coffee on your private terrace, with a 10th-floor view over the Williamsburg rooftops toward Manhattan, sounds awfully good.
The agents:
 Brooke Safford and David Beegun

Queens

42-22 Ketcham Street, Apartment E22/E24, Elmhurst

Sunday, 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.

42-22 Ketcham Street, Apartment E22/E24, Elmhurst

What’s here: Priced at $645,000, this prewar co-op features two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and an open kitchen with appliances by Bosch, Blomberg, and Bertazzoni.
What we love: You’re just one F-train stop from the site of the new Amazon headquarters in Long Island City, but you can always skip the train and pedal to work: The building offers bike storage for an extra $20 per month.
The agents:
 Steven Gerber and Stan Gerasimczyk

 

The East End

174 Wooley Street, Southampton

Saturday, 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

174 Wooley Street, Southampton

What’s here: Priced at $2,995,000, this 3,000-square-foot shingled traditional home, set on a third of an acre, features four bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms, a wood-burning fireplace, a heated pool, and a pool house with a half-bath and an outdoor shower.
What we love: Built in 1925, this picture-perfect Hamptons compound is a relaxed 15-minutes to Southampton Village on foot, or 30 minutes to Little Plains Beach. (You’d spend longer than that looking for a parking spot.)
The agents: Pat Garrity

South Florida

5501 South Flagler Drive, West Palm Beach

Sunday, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

5501 South Flagler Drive, West Palm Beach

There’s also a full-house generator and hurricane impact windows.
What we love: Space, and lots of it: Despite its secure-compound privacy, this home has a wide-open attitude, with airy rooms and 14-foot ceilings, relaxed outdoor spaces, and prime frontage along the Intracoastal.
