Personal trainer Bob Harper took over as the host of “The Biggest Loser” in 2015, the same year he bought this one-bedroom condo at Chelsea’s 124 West 24th Street for $1,875,000. He’s now put the loft-like home back on the market for $2,295,000. According to the listing, Harper underwent “an extensive cosmetic renovation on the property,” which included darkening the hardwood floors, redoing the kitchen, and replacing all fixtures. Coupled with the space’s exposed brick walls and wood beams, the place is super stylish with a cool moody-industrial vibe.

Architect Frederick Stelle began his career 40 years ago renovating the Yale University Old Campus dormitories. He then went on to co-found his own firm in Manhattan, and in 1985 opened Stelle Architects on the East End of Long Island. Stelle is passionate about the Hamptons community where he lives and is also a conservationist, according to his firm bio, interests that clearly exhibit themselves at this modern Water Mill house he designed. Currently on the market for $19.5 million, the four-bedroom house is located on Mecox Bay and offers waterfront views from nearly every room, as well as an incredible gunite pool and private dock.

Architect Lewis Bowman was raised in Mount Vernon and started his career as a draftsman for McKim, Mead and White. Bowman would go on to become well-regarded for the stately residences he designed in Bronxville, ranging in style from Jacobean to Tudor. He chose the latter style for his personal home in the Westchester commuter suburb, which was built in 1922. The mansion is now on the market for $8,500,000 and it retains all of its grand appeal, from beamed ceilings and oak-paneled walls to hand-carved fireplace mantels and leaded glass diamond windows. And of course, the grounds are truly magical, with hidden paths, tranquil fountains, magical gardens, and a dreamy pool.

A huge, historic townhouse at 614 Hudson Street in Hoboken has hit the market for $6,995,000. If it sells for this price, it’ll be the biggest townhouse sale ever in Hoboken and all of Hudson County. The current record holder is 504 Hudson Street, which sold for $6.5 million back in 2016. This new contender was gut renovated in 2017, leaving the main home with 5,600 square feet of stunningly beautiful space, six bedrooms, an elevator, and a roof deck. Notably, the property also has a separate carriage house with a loft apartment, as well as a private two-car garage, which, if you know anything about parking in Hoboken, is the biggest selling point of all.

Fourteen acres is certainly a lot of land, but this “family compound” in Stuyvesant, New York makes very good use of it. To start, the 138-year-old barn (which was originally home to the horses that pulled blocks of ice cut from a winter-frozen Hudson River) has been restored and converted into a soaring home, complete with 25-foot beamed ceilings. Also on the property are a 2,500-square-foot studio, a walled garden with a greenhouse and dining area, a 72-foot salt water pool, and a writer’s cottage, all set against a Catskills backdrop. It’s on the market for $2,750,000.
