520 W19th St PHB

According to the New York Daily News, Beyonce was spotted apartment hunting this week, without hubby Jay Z, for what some are speculating could be her new bachelorette pad. The luxurious home that seems to have caught Bey’s eye is this incredible 4,054-square-foot square penthouse located at 520 West 19th Street, which comes with not only a 20-foot dining room and libraries, but a stunning 642-square-foot private terrace that runs the full length of the apartment and looks out to a dazzling array of city sights—a birds-eye view of the Empire State Building among them.

It’s no secret that the East Village is the go-to neighborhood for NYU students and recent grads looking to mix, mingle, and party, and that can get a little rowdy at times. But the Eiche Residence by Specht Harpman is a peaceful retreat within this buzzing neighborhood.

Simple horizontal and vertical lines mixed with clean volumes and planar surfaces help to maximize space and organize movement through this unusually laid out triplex unit. And with neutral furniture and an abundance of warm, natural wood, the calming feel achieved inside will make you forget that you’re even in New York.

Take a walk down this carriage house-lined block of Vanderbilt Avenue in the Clinton Hill Historic District, and you’ll feel like you’ve been transported back to the 19th century. And in fact, most of the historic homes haven’t changed much since then, except for number 407. Though this brick beauty blends in seamlessly with its fellow carriage houses, it was actually constructed in 2006 after receiving approval from the Landmarks Preservation Commission.

The four-story home has the look and feel of an old-time structure, but offers a modern layout and contemporary conveniences, plus it boasts 6,592 square feet of interior space and two outdoor oases.

415 Washington Street TH18, soap warehouse, the Fairchild

It probably seems odd for a New York apartment to spark visions of Scarlet O’Hara walking down a staircase. And where is this apartment? It’s not in Brooklyn, or even on the Upper East Side. Ladies and gentlemen you are in Tribeca, where developer and homeowner Gizman Abbas decided to forgo the typical warehouse look in favor of a more palatial, classic look inspired by a trip to Versailles. And if you’re not fascinated by the old world details, let us remind you that just because a home looks like the backdrop for a period piece, doesn’t mean it can’t be rigged with enough modern-day technology to rival Bill Gates. Because our friend Mr. Abbas has traveled to more places than just Versailles, and his cup of inspiration runneth over. It was apparently enough to convince New York attorney Tracey Anne Zaccone. According to city records, Zaccone just purchased the home for $6.7 million, and it looks like she got a steal of a deal.

Fort Green Pavilion designed by O'Neill McVoy Architects

Few things look more out of place than a clunky new addition to a beautiful historic house, especially in a neighborhood as quaint and peaceful as tree-lined Fort Greene. So when the owners of this 19th-century townhouse wanted to expand and make room for two growing teenage daughters, they sought out a team who could do it seamlessly: Beth O’Neill and Chris McVoy of O’Neill McVoy Architects.

From making the list of most popular baby names, to having whole stores devoted to its wares, Brooklyn has become quite the brand these days. But for a classic feel of living in the borough that bucks trends, we can always look to The Brooklyn Home Company for their tasteful, functional, and timeless spaces — like this stunning 5th Street Park Slope townhouse.

The firm undertook the entire interior/exterior renovation, as well as the nine-foot extension that was added to the garden and parlor floors, those which the building owners occupy. They transformed the space with a mix of historic and modern details, custom built-ins, and impressive millwork. During the demolition, the original beams were discovered behind the drop ceiling, a feature that was left exposed and now anchors the entire living space.
