In addition to top-floor light and a never-be-bored location, this one-bedroom Lower East Side walk-up at 118 Suffolk Street has an added bonus: a compact spiral staircase that ascends to a lofted den, which in turn accesses a private roof deck. For that, plus high ceilings, exposed brick, and fabulous finishes, the co-op is asking $950,000.

T-Mobile’s departing CEO John Legere first listed his palatial penthouse at 91 Central Park West for $22 million in February 2018 and progressively dropped the price to just shy of $18 million in his search for a buyer. In the end, he didn’t have to look far. Giorgio Armani—who already owns a unit on the same floor—recently purchased the residence for roughly $17.5 million, as the Wall Street Journal first reported. The one-time home of publishing giant William Randolph Hearst sprawls over 3,000 square feet and comes with a 1,700-square-foot private terrace overlooking the park. Armani will combine the residence with his existing, similarly sized unit and take over the entire floor.

The spacious, laid-back architect-designed modern home at 5253 Arlington Avenue in the Hudson Hill section of Riverdale near Wave Hill was built in 1940 on one of the neighborhood’s deepest plots (79 feet by 323 feet). The cedar-clad four-bedroom home, asking $2.599 million, is surrounded by private flagstone patios, rolling lawns, and lush plantings. The residence has been well-maintained and tastefully updated over time, but there’s potential and space for significant expansion if you’re looking for even more room.

This one-bedroom co-op at 41 Jane Street in one of the most sought-after blocks of the wonderful West Village is just the sort of apartment so many are hoping to find when looking for a pied-a-terre or a place with just enough room for one (or a very close couple). Asking $789,000, the apartment has plenty of pre-war charm, exposed brick, high ceilings, and a wood-burning fireplace.

This just-right West Village co-op is the result of the combination of one lucky pre-war apartment and its downstairs twin; it may be priced like a one-bedroom co-op at $1.445 million, but it has the looks–and back garden–of a classic townhouse. The one-bedroom duplex at 92 Horatio Street has had a recent tasteful renovation, and two floors of space and an enchanting 250-square-foot garden on the ground floor are enviable just to start with. All of those things are located in one of Manhattan’s most sought-after neighborhoods.

More Twice the charm, this way

The 99 John Deco Lofts at 99 John Street in the heart of lower Manhattan’s Financial District is one of those FiDi condos where everything is sleek, contemporary and new, and there are so many amenities you hardly have to leave the premises. All of that luxury comes at a price–in this case $4,995 a month–but there’s no need to commit to buying. There’s also no need to buy (or bring) furniture; it’s included with the chic and lofty one-bedroom rental pad. There’s plenty of closet space throughout, so whatever you bring can find a home as well.

Cool Listings, Soho

After nearly 30 years, Henry Buhl—a former mutual-fund manager turned photographer, philanthropist, and art collector—has listed his four-bedroom Soho loft for a cool $19 million. Buhl bought two adjacent units at 102 Prince Street and 114 Greene Street in 1990 for about $2.5 million and combined them into a sprawling, 7,000+ square-foot residence. Located in a classic Soho cast-iron building, one side of the home is luxuriously decorated in the Renaissance style while the other offers a unique “sculpture garden” filled with Buhl’s hand-themed art collection featuring works by Pablo Picasso, Auguste Rodin, and Fernando Botero. The 89-year-old is looking to downsize, according to an interview with the Wall Street Journal, and is willing to sell prospective buyers “a handful” of his art as well.

This duplex at The Beresford at 211 Central Park West possesses one of Manhattan’s finest Central Park-facing terraces. The sprawling Upper West Side co-op in the celebrity-studded classic Emery Roth-designed pre-war building was home to Broadway and screen talent Adolph Green (he wrote “Singin’ In The Rain”) and Tony Award-winning actor Phyllis Newman. In addition to the sprawling duplex and 600-square-foot terrace, $24 million will assure you dazzling panoramic views of the Park, Central Park South, and the city skyline. And next door, you’ll find Jerry Seinfeld’s place.

The single-family townhouse at 409 Bleecker Street in the West Village dates from 1860, and has had the same owner for over 40 years. The Italianate townhouse also had the good fortune of being located in one of the neighborhood’s many charming residential and shopping districts. The current owner is the widow of the late Donald E. Westlake (who also wrote under the pen name Richard Stark), a prolific American writer. The current retail tenant–trendy French fashion label Zadig & Voltaire–contributes $32,000 a month in rental income, which might make the home’s $9.75 million ask seem quite worth it.
