190 West Street #8 Living Room

When you hear about a Greenpoint apartment for sale, “loft” might not be what first pops into your head.  But apartment 8 at 190 West Street, currently listed for $1.825 million through CORE, will make you a believer in Brooklyn loft living.

The 1,364-square-foot, one-bedroom apartment has all of the loft-like charms you’d hope for–steel support columns, nine-inch oak plank flooring, and exposed wood ceiling beams, duct work, and pipes.  It also feels twice its size thanks to 16-foot ceilings, 40 feet of street-facing frontage, eight-foot-high windows, a large skylight, and an open layout that can easily accommodate a two-bedroom conversion.

Don’t miss the rest of this Brooklyn beauty

Bridge Tower Place, 401 East 60th Street

Remember the Sesame Street segment called “One of These Things is Not Like the Others”? (If you don’t, click here for a reminder). Well, it’s exactly what came to mind as soon as we saw photos of this gorgeous Upper East Side apartment located in Bridge Tower Place at 401 East 60th Street. The lush details in every room conjure up the French baroque style of Versailles with its lavish decoration and romantic elegance. Every room that is, except the beautiful but sorely out of place kitchen.

See why the kitchen doesn’t seem to belong

Describing this Flatiron loft and ‘spacious’ and ‘bright’ somehow seems like an understatement, but there’s no denying that even just looking at this 4,000-square-feet home will make you fee sun-soaked. Up for one lucky renter to scoop up, this beautiful WXY Studio-restored space at 40 West 22nd Street is perfect for an artist or art collector hang their pieces and comes with plenty of space to host fabulous art parties and lots of friends.

45 Christopher Street 8AG

Celebrity sightings are not uncommon in the West Village and along the quiet, leafy street named Christopher filled with charming homes owned by the likes of the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman and comedienne Amy Sedaris. But residents here take it all in stride, and that low-key vibe permeates the walls of this beautifully appointed 3-bedroom, 2-bath condo at 45 Christopher Street.

This corner unit’s original beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, and light-filled rooms offer a perfect setting to the city views greeting you to the north and west.

Battery Park City, Cool Listings

ritz carlton west street penthouse collection

Last week we reported on the plans of two industrious property owners at the Ritz-Carlton in Battery Park City who were pooling their three penthouses in hopes of making a record-breaking $118.5 million sale. Hearsay no more because it looks like the listing for the space has officially emerged, and will be managed by none other than power broker Ryan Serhant at Nestseekers.

Aptly dubbed ‘The Penthouse Collection‘, the combined 39th and 40th floor spaces owned by Randall Yanker and Gary Segal offer up a staggering duplex totaling 15,434 square feet — or in layman’s terms (or is that possible with something this size?) 12 bedrooms and 15 bathrooms with “the potential” to extend both those numbers further. 20-foot ceilings, three kitchens, four terraces, and multiple living areas also means its a good thing that hotel amenities include housekeeping.

With the help of Steve Harivel, one of the designers behind the famous Soho House hotel, this 3,500-square-foot pad seamlessly blends modern technology and vintage charm… and the best part is the furniture is included.

74 Reade Street 1E bedroom

That’s right, little darling, we have here a sun-soaked duplex apartment that will make you want to belt out Beatles’ tunes.  The 2BR/1BA apartment at 74 Reade Street comes complete with 3,000 square feet of flexible space and a live/work permit — the perfect combination for an artist or entrepreneur looking to personalize their home.

Apartment 1E is listed for $3.1 million. Its selling point is most definitely the abundance of natural light that shines in through the full wall of double-height windows on the first floor and large, geometric skylights that grace each bedroom.  The open floor plan, huge exposed brick walls, and 15-foot tin ceilings add to the bright, airy feel of the apartment.

129 West 20th Street PHAB interior, walls of windows, two-story living room, National Design Award, fully renovated, two terraces

If you’re looking for a conveniently located loft with over 4,000 square feet of interior space and enough outdoor space to turn the phrase “in the doghouse” into a reward, this award-winning penthouse in The Chelsea Quarter might be your pad. PHAB at 129 West 20th Street is a beautifully renovated two-story condominium with a National Design Award from the Society of American Registered Architects to back it up. There’s something about this home we find adorably endearing; perhaps because it makes us a bit nostalgic for an ‘80s yachting movie. And we mean that in the best way possible.

285 Central Park West, St. Urban, living room, country chic, country and city, new york interiors, million dollar listing

Hiding away in the premier St. Urban, 285 Central Park West #12W is what you imagine was the result when old-world country mouse met old-world city mouse… and the two bought a lavish Central Park apartment. With gorgeous pre-war details accented with a touch of country chic, this 3,000-square-foot Beaux-Arts style apartment has a combination of opulence and southern comfort to make anyone happy. In fact, we suspect if Oliver and Lisa from Green Acres had purchased this place, it would have settled all their arguments.
