A home that is one part of the sprawling New Jersey estate built by the Straus Family, the owners of Macy’s, is now available. Located in Red Bank at 310 Cooper Road, Cobble Close Farm is a 13-acre estate with French Norman-style buildings, including several residences. The estate was built in the 1920s by Herbert Nathan Straus and his wife Therese Kuhn Straus; Herbert’s father was Isidor Straus, the co-owner of Macy’s who died on the Titanic. A 4,500-square-foot co-op on the property recently hit the market for $2,645,000, which includes an additional apartment and shared ownership of the historic farm.

Atop an Emery Roth-designed Art Deco-style building at 880 Fifth Avenue, this two-floor co-op has the kind of elegant Manhattan cachet you won’t find on Billionaires’ Row. Along with its classic mid-20th-century interior style (lots of sleek wood and architectural built-ins), the luxurious 2,800-square-foot trophy pad boasts 3,350 square feet of private outdoor space, including a manicured rooftop terrace that’s akin to having your own private park. And it’s across the street from Central Park itself, with the iconic park and city views you’d expect from an Upper East Side penthouse with a $22,000,000 price tag.

They don’t make rooms this size anymore. This sprawling co-op in the iconic Beresford at 211 Central Park West boasts the pre-war proportions that make even the humble staff rooms (yes, plural) bigger than the average Manhattan bedroom. This 10-room corner apartment, asking $14,200,000, gets the kind of views and light you’d expect from the prime parkside spot. A vast gallery, staff rooms, and gracious spaces at every turn mean the home’s five bedrooms could become more–or opened up to accommodate a grand ballroom.
