It’s been more than six years since this stately home at 29 Beekman Place first listed for $37.5 million, and it’s now back on the market for less than a third of that price. Built in 1934 as the largest of all the mansions along the exclusive enclave, the home is eight stories and has 10 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, two terraces, and amazing East River views. It’s only had three owners in its lifetime, starting with its first resident, CBS founder William S. Paley.

Perhaps the pandemic lifestyle has inspired you to go more minimalist. If so, this alcove studio on the Upper East Side may be pretty appealing. Located at 205 East 63rd Street, just east of Third Avenue, the legal one-bedroom has a futuristic vibe with stark white walls, porcelain floors, and furniture, save for the strategically placed pops of lime green. For just $350,000, there’s a foyer, full kitchen, large living room (currently outfitted with a modern Murphy bed to free up even more space), and a whopping six closets.

Does quarantine have you dreaming about more apartment space? How about 3,000 square feet inside and 2,200 square feet outside? That’s what you’ll get at this penthouse at 430 Greenwich Street in Tribeca. The lucky new owner who drops $9,275,000 on the co-op will be the first tenant; previously a raw loft space, it was recently renovated and custom-designed by architect Robert Marino. Not only did he add an irrigated roof garden with an outdoor kitchen, but he complimented the interior’s original features like exposed timber beams and steel supports with super-chic additions including imported Italianate bronze work.

Here’s an English manor right in Connecticut (h/t CIRCA). Listed for $15,900,000 (down from the original ask of $22,000,000), the 1891 home is located on the Belle Haven peninsula in Greenwich, an exclusive enclave that was built in the late 19th century as a residential park. Known as the Fairholme Estate, it features perfectly preserved interiors, a wrap-around porch, coachman’s cottage, in-ground pool, and incredibly manicured gardens with maze-like hedges and climbing vines.

If this home looks like it’s an Italian villa, that’s because its owners added everything from marble window columns to hand-painted ceiling murals by artists flown in from Italy. According to the Wall Street Journal, Carmelo Giuffre, a Sicilian immigrant and the CEO of a group of 21 local auto dealerships, and his wife bought the Bay Ridge home in 1983 and completely decked it out in opulent finishes and ornate furnishings. In addition to the 10,000-square-foot, seven-bedroom home, there’s a 50-foot pool with a water slide, a full outdoor kitchen and bar, and landscaped grounds that include a fountain and gazebo. The amazing property has just come back on the market asking $11,200,000 (h/t CityRealty).

Old and new NYC collide in this $769,000 studio that’s roughly 600 square feet. It’s located at 100 West 58th Street, a classic 1928 Rosario Candela-designed apartment building. But today, this location, just a block south of Central Park at the corner of 6th Avenue, puts it smack in the middle of Billionaires’ Row. And with a sizable separate kitchen and enough room for two distinct areas in the living space, it’s quite a reasonable buy.
