In addition to its narrow frame, the house also stands out for its unique metal facade, made entirely of steel and zinc.

“The Real Housewives of New York City” star Ramona Singer has put her renovated and refined five-bedroom apartment in The Richmond condo at 201 East 80th Street on the market for $4.99 million.

Cool Listings, Quirky Homes, Upstate

Located near the remote Ithaca-area village of Van Etten, NY, is a genuine, authentic, real live (or, mostly not) taxidermy factory for sale, asking $1.05 million. You don’t see a listing for a stuffed fauna foundry every day, but this one, it turns out, is enough to cover all the days. The 90-acre parcel in the heart of the state’s Finger Lakes region includes a 2,927-square-foot classic log-and-stone three-home with hillside views. Also on the property are a tiny cottage overlooking a two-acre pond, 20 acres of fenced pastures, 70 acres of hardwood forest, an orchard, a fenced garden, a pole barn with tack room and an outdoor arena, a garage, and a woodshed–plus a workshop and office (more about those later).

Now, about that wildlife

This classic industrial Dumbo loft at 50 Bridge Street is already ahead of the rental pack by being an extra-large one-bedroom, two-bath apartment that spans three levels. It has the prerequisite high ceilings and exposed beams plus a working fireplace, central A/C and large south-facing windows. It’s asking $6,900 a month, which seems a bit steep (even with a swing in the middle of the living room), until you discover the massive private roof deck with all the summertime fun necessities including a hot tub, a cabana and more.

Cool Listings, Williamsburg

This recently renovated late-1800s Williamsburg rowhouse’s future is so bright, you have to wear shades. Asking $2,899,000, natural light floods every room of this house and, best of all, it has an actual swimming pool in the backyard. And, if an owner needs more space, the house comes with unused air rights that could almost double it in size.

Back in 2017 6sqft reported on the growing trend that saw celebrities and the well-heeled-and-hip ditching the hamptons for upstate and Catskills getaways. “Real Housewives of New York” regular Luann De Lesseps must have just gotten the memo; she’s put her Sag Harbor house on the market for $6.25 million–and she’s asking $150,000 in rent for the place during August. The New York Post quotes a friend of the former countess: “She loves the Hamptons, and her house, but it’s time for a change. The Hamptons is changing, and she’s looking elsewhere to summer. She’s in love with the Catskills.”

Designed by prolific Upper West Side architect Charles T. Mott in 1891 for Dow Jones founder Edward Jones, the facade of this five-story townhouse at 325 West 76th Street hints at the rich history and the grand details within.
