Cool Listings, Fort Greene

Photo credit: Gamut Photos

There’s something very romantic about this brownstone at 374 Vanderbilt Avenue in Fort Greene. The interiors have been beautifully preserved and the home modernized, but not so much so that it’s lost its old-world charm. The five-bedroom Second Empire townhouse was built in 1899 and is part of the Fort Greene Historic District. It’s asking $3,995,000, and has a studio apartment in the basement level for added income.

Through oversized north- and west-facing windows at this Brooklyn Heights loft, you’re staring directly at the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges, East River, and even the Statue of Liberty in the distance. Located at 8 Old Fulton Street, the two-bedroom co-op is asking $3,250,000 and was renovated by the well-known architects at Studio DB.

Cool Listings, Greenwich Village

This Greenwich Village co-op at 2 East 12th Street is the perfect year-round oasis. For those cold winter months, the interiors are super cozy, with two working fireplaces. But in the summer, the backyard is a true retreat. It’s two levels, along with a side patio and, most notably, a sunken Japanese-style cedar hot tub. You’ll also find a large Ipe wood deck with a built-in banquette, plenty of planters, and a cedar potting shed for all those gardening needs.

For someone who loves to entertain, this Tribeca penthouse 166 Duane Street can’t be beaten. First off, it’s huge–6,200 square feet inside and 1,200 square feet outside (larger than most NYC apartments!). This roof deck has several seating areas and an outdoor kitchen, and it’s adjacent to a sunroom that has a wet bar. There’s another wet bar in the media room, and when the bar runs dry, just head to the 1,000-bottle wine room.

Clinton Hill, Cool Listings, Historic Homes

This Greek Revival home looks like something one might find in New Orleans or Savannah, but it’s actually right in Clinton Hill. Its southern charm, however, has not seemed to help the home at 136 Clinton Avenue find a buyer; it’s been on and off the market for four years, originally asking $4.8 million. One year ago, the price dropped to $3.6 million, and it’s just been lowered again to $3,420,000. Perhaps its “haunted” past is scaring off potential buyers. The historic home is known to be one of the most haunted in Brooklyn.

Cool Listings, Upper East Side

It’s almost unbelievable that all this space is within a Manhattan home, but this townhouse at 236 East 72nd Street on the Upper East Side is as real as they come. Listed for $9,880,000, the 5,000-square-foot house is anchored by a dramatic, double-height living room with ceilings almost 21 feet high and massive, cathedral-like windows. Outside, the 40-foot-long garden is surrounded by planters and beautiful landscaping and boasts a fountain and two seating areas. But perhaps the most enviable feature is the private parking garage.

It’s been nearly two years since sales launched at Extell’s Central Park Tower and one year since the 1,500-foot condominium topped out along Central Park South, making it the tallest residential building on the globe. And now, we’ve got our first look inside one of the enviable apartments at this Billionaires’ Row building. The model residence is a 3,401-square-foot, three-bedroom corner unit on the 43rd floor, priced at $17,500,000. Not surprisingly, the interiors are decked out to the nines, but, of course, it’s the insane views we can’t stop ogling.

If you’ve always dreamed of living in the West Village, this junior one-bedroom at 92 Horatio Street might be the place to start. Not only is the location spot on, but the $950,000 co-op was gut-renovated four years ago, resulting in a super stylish and unique home. The icing on the cake, though, is the private rooftop oasis that has views of the Empire State Building and Hudson River.

The “cursed” Upper East Side mansion of late convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein has hit the market for $88 million. Located at 9 East 71st Street on one of the city’s wealthiest blocks, the townhouse is considered the largest single-family home in New York City, rising seven stories and measuring more than 28,000 square feet. Epstein was charged federally last year for abusing dozens of underage girls and women at many of his properties, including his Manhattan mansion.

The dramatic Chelsea duplex owned by actress Susan Sarandon for nearly 30 years has hit the market for $7.9 million. Located at 147 West 15th Street within the luxury co-op building La Fabrique, the massive 6,000-square-foot apartment boasts a flexible layout with six bedrooms, four exposures, and a gallery foyer on the eighth floor. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, the Academy Award winner, a native of Queens, said she plans to downsize to a smaller pad nearby and has no intention of leaving the city. “I’ve always been a New Yorker and I’ll continue to be a New Yorker,” Sarandon said.
