Located in the quaint-but-cool town of Tivoli, NY, about 100 miles from New York City in the Hudson River Valley near Bard College, this two-bedroom cabin, listed on Airbnb for $200 a night, has a Scandi-modern vibe, decor that reflects the hosts’ travels and eclectic past and plenty of creature comforts. The home’s friendly hosts call it a “cozy den,” which sounds about right–perfect for families, friends or couples.
Located in what was once a cheese warehouse at 14 Harrison Street in Tribeca, this 4,500-square-foot loft has been the home of American playwright Edward Albee since 1977. According to Mansion Global, Albee held his famed annual Christmas party here, with luminaries like Lauren Bacall and Kathleen Turner in attendance. The duplex co-op spanning the building’s fifth and sixth floors is a fascinating home even without the literary connection; the classic loft, with an elevator that opens on each floor, is currently for sale asking $8.995 million.
The celebrity many New Yorkers love to hate really wants you to know she is so over Brooklyn. In a recent interview with The Cut, Lena Dunham talks (or shall we say rants?) about relocating from Williamsburg to the West Village in the wake of her recent hysterectomy: “My whole identity was, like, Brooklyn, and now I’m like, Thank you, Lord. I’m back amongst my tribe, which is like old people puttering around the health-food store… … I just wanna live around old people who are not reminding me every day of my infertility and loneliness.” And to drive the point home, Variety has now gotten the scoop on the official listing for her former pad at 60 Broadway, which is on the market for $3 million, just a hair over the $2.9 million she paid for it back in April.
No, really. Santa’s Christmas Tree Farm spans 28 acres in Long Island’s North Fork, and this cool Cutchogue property [h/t Curbed] is the perfect gift for that special someone on your list who has everything, provided you have the $2.5 million required to close the deal, which incudes 23 planted acres, an 1,800-square-foot farmhouse, an 8,000-square-foot commercial Morton building (lights and trimming, of course) and four irrigation wells.
Unless we’re talking about a “sleeping loft,” it’s not that easy to find a true one-bedroom on the Upper East Side for under $1 million, but this charmer at 335 East 90th Street offers that and so much more. The completely renovated duplex not only has a large open living/dining area on the upper level, but below, it boasts a bedroom, bonus room, and 660-square-foot landscaped backyard. Pre-war touches such as exposed brick and a wood-burning fireplace remain but are complemented by modern built-in storage, a sleek kitchen, and contemporary spiral staircase.
This circa 1731 home located 10 minutes from downtown Princeton, New Jersey, in Rocky Hill’s Historic District, was once a 100-acre working farm. JerseyDigs tells us the home, known as the Murphy Voorhees House in honor of its previous owner, Abraham O. Voorhees, is recognized as a local and national treasure. The property’s biggest claim to fame, however, is that it hosted George Washington in 1783 while he waited to hear news about the Treaty of Paris. In addition to having a place in history, the four-bedroom home has received a thorough renovation with an eye to both restoration and modernization.
The hipster-taxidermy theme may be a bit strange, but that aside, everything about this Bronx co-op at 860 Grand Concourse is perfect–especially the $450,000 price tag. As the listing says, the spacious, two-bedroom spread is “contemporary, classic and sophisticated,” with an infusion of colorful, quirky decor. And if moving to our northernmost borough seems like a hike, think again. With a location in the Grand Concourse Historic District just three blocks from Yankee Stadium, that means the building is equally close to the 4, B, and D trains, as well as right next to the shops at Concourse Village.

This Upper West Side co-op at 224 Riverside Drive would be a great deal on its own, with a spacious one-bedroom layout, totally renovated kitchen, and oversized windows that let in lots of sun and incredible Hudson River views. But add in these subtle steampunk touches–moody grey walls paired with whitewashed brick, vintage-style furnishings like a leather Chesterfield sofa and industrial lighting, and an all-black bathroom–and that $900,000 price tag seems like even more of a steal.
As 6sqft previously reported, the building that’s home to this four-bedroom East Village duplex condo at 12 Avenue A was at one time a speakeasy and dancehall. In the much less distant past (in 2016), the sprawling apartment was asking $24,500/month rent. While it still boasts a private roof deck, a huge movie screen, surround-sound, and luxury fixtures and finishes, it’s now asking a still-pricey $19,500 per month.
Library or apartment? The lines are blurred at this amazing duplex co-op at 40 Fifth Avenue that just hit the market for $4,995,000. The entire maisonette spread is full of pre-war details mixed with modern amenities, but it’s the dramatic double-height living room that steals the show. The first level has creative built-ins that extend to the furniture, and the second floor is a wrap-around atrium balcony lined completely with bookshelves and window seats overlooking Fifth Avenue and 11th Street.
