Even in the Westchester County village of Dobbs Ferry, NY, the 4.2 acre Cricket Hill estate seems a world removed from modern life 20 miles away in New York City. The 6,000-square-foot stone and shingle country house is both characterful and updated for modern living, but the enchanted grounds, including a terraced walled garden, free-form pool and grape arbor, appear unaltered by time.

Housed inside a former printing house built in the 1880s, this one-bedroom at 9 Barrow Street “embraces its rich architectural history,” as the listing notes. Plaster was stripped away during a recent renovation to feature the warm exposed brick and nearly 11-foot barrel-vaulted ceilings. It’s not just the character-filled interior that earns this co-op it’s $995,00 asking price. Located on a quaint, tree-lined Greenwich Village block, the property easily checks off the “great location” box. Elevator access and a small but charming private terrace round out the package.

The deed for this 30+ acre Greek Revival farmhouse and apple orchard at 340 Route 9H in Claverack (a hamlet with views of the Catskills located about five miles from Hudson) has only changed hands three times since it was built in 1842. If you’re looking for a place to grow some roots—and apples—this retreat has plenty to offer. Also known as Miletus Farm, the sprawling property includes a 2,200 square foot home, several outbuildings, a tennis court, and a garage, in addition to the idyllic orchards, which also grow peaches and apricots. The property was on the market last fall for $999,000 and is now listed for a reduced $699,000 with the option of including a three-bedroom caretaker’s house into the sale for a total of $899,000.

The bones of this two-family townhouse at 362 Clermont Avenue date back to 1899, but inside, a gut renovation has brought the property well into the 21st century. Several wood-burning fireplaces and the original doors were restored while other materials, like the reclaimed wood floors, were carefully sourced to reflect what was originally there. The 22-foot-wide Fort Greene home spans across 3,650 square feet (not including the basement apartment) and is seeking $4.35 million.

More than 100 years after its construction, the Woolworth Building’s transformation into a luxury residential tower is complete. Now, four years after condo sales first launched, there’s an opportunity to live in one of the building’s most unique residences. Developer Alchemy Properties has listed a 29th-floor five-bedroom, called Pavilion A, for $29.85 million, an asking price roughly $3 million less than when the apartment first listed in May. And while the unit’s size and custom features make this apartment special, the setback duplex terrace, which lets you rub elbows with the historic building’s stunning terra-cotta exterior, puts it in another league.

In 2013, the New York Times described the William Lescaze townhouse at 32 East 74th Street—one of the first modernist residences built in NYC—as being “just at the edge of passing from worn to shabby, waiting for a new owner to bring it back to flawlessness.” After years of being on and off the market, a new owner came into the picture in 2015, when he bought the property for $14.5 million and transformed it into a three-unit investment property. Lescaze designed the house for Raymond C. and Mildred Kramer in 1934, one year after completing a modernist home for himself at 211 East 48th Street. Both feature his characteristic use of white stucco and glass bricks. The landmarked exteriors have remained intact, but as 6sqft previously noted, the interiors have long shed any trace of Lescaze’s interior design. The transformed property was most recently on the market in 2017 with a $20 million ask and is now back for a slightly reduced $19.5 million.

Featuring a fresh renovation by the owner, interior designer Shawn Henderson, this West Village co-op at 791 Greenwich Street blends a loft-like feel with classic Village charm. The biggest move made by Henderson—who counts Will Ferrell and Glenn Close as clients—was demolishing the wall between the former living and dining rooms in favor of an open concept. He also restored the original pine floors and created “pockets” of white and exposed brick throughout. Add to those charming details a hard-to-beat location near the corner of Bethune Street (“in the heart of the quietest and quaintest part of the West Village,” as the listing boasts) and you’re looking at a quintessential downtown pad for the asking price of $1.6 million.

Another unique feature: The home boasts an 18-foot-tall brick wall that was constructed by renowned Italian sculptor Albino Manca, who once lived and worked in the space.
