A strikingly elegant co-op apartment at 375 West End Avenue has for $4.3 million, according to city records. The seller, Paul T. Cappuccio, Vice President and General Counsel at Time Warner, Inc., bought the 5BR/3.5BA unit in July 2011 for $3.5 million, netting him an almost $1 million profit.
The handsome, 2,400-square-foot space is a mix of traditional design and convenient, modern touches. Stunning, detailed moldings and shiny herringbone hardwood floors work alongside barely-there recessed lighting and a contemporary, marble bathroom. Ten-foot ceilings and large windows framed by panel molding are decorative elements that harken back to the building’s prewar construction, while custom walk-in closets and a laundry room with full-size washer/dryer are 21st-century touches.

New York is a true walking city, but can you imagine installing a sidewalk inside your apartment? That’s essentially what the architects at Work Architecture Company (WORKac) did for this minimalist White Street loft. At the very heart of the living and dining rooms sits a row of Japanese-style tables that can be extended or retracted to act as a dance floor, catwalk or stage. That’s just one of the many stunning features conceived by WORKac and the home’s owner, fashion designer Lela Rose.

Thirteen windows wrapping around three sides of this 1,100 square foot loft means bright and airy in a big way – even the bedroom closet and bathroom are filled with sunlight!
Overlooking two of the building’s three charming courtyards this gorgeous unit at 140 Sullivan Street has a wonderfully open floor plan with extra high ceilings exposing all of the original wood and steel beams, wide plank cherry floors throughout, and built-ins galore. And while a NYC curator created this open concept to merge the aesthetics of uptown chic with the artistic and architectural details of downtown, this home presents its next owner with a virtual clean slate as there is plenty of space to carve out additional bedrooms, an office, even formalize the dining and living areas.
Right this way for hmmm and mmmm
Believe it or not, before Trader Joe’s and Rag & Bone came along, Boerum Hill was a neighborhood filled with boarding houses for ironworkers who came to work on Manhattan’s bridges and skyscrapers. A number of manufacturing factories also made their way into the neighborhood during the early 20th century, including a construction at 120 Boerum Place. This beautiful pre-war building was converted into a condo in the early 80s. But instead of demolishing the whole thing, they fused the old with the new, keeping a number of industrial details intact, including an incredible “skytrack” that wraps the entire roof of the building.
For those who love the comforts of living in a premiere neighborhood, but want a more unfinished aesthetic, apartment #2J at the Skytrack is calling for you…

Row after row of wood-framed houses fill the quaint, tree-lined streets of Brooklyn’s Windsor Park neighborhood. Many are decades old and like this cozy home on Reeve Place, require a bit of a face-lift after many years of wear and tear.
In 2013, the owners enlisted the architects at Brooklyn’s Barker Freeman Design Office to give the semi-detached house a makeover, complete with a brand new wood-paneled exterior.

There’s no doubt that the aluminium facade of this Midtown townhouse is a showstopper. Set between two traditional red brick homes on East 51st Street, the building’s shiny, punctuated front is sure to get every passersby’s attention. But it wasn’t designed just to become talk of the town — it’s also meant to give the owners some much-needed privacy.
The interiors are just as unique
With its conversion completed only a few months ago, and dubbed “Vaux Mansion”, a nod to Calvert Vaux who designed the russet neo-Gothic structure that is part of the property, the eclectic mix of exteriors at 215 Sullivan Street make a stately presence in its Greenwich Village neighborhood.
And in a city filled with multimillion dollars homes, this 39’ wide townhouse sits at the head of the class. We’ve taken a peek inside many a gorgeous residence, but this one is truly lovely. The interior of this six-bedroom, seven-bath home is everything you would expect – 6,861 square feet of soaring vaulted ceilings, rift-sawn wide plank white oak flooring, and exquisite finishes.
See why this home is not just another multimillion dollar listing
Most New Yorkers are used to squeezing into small quarters, but few of those spaces boast dramatic ceilings like this beautiful little home at 67 East 11th Street in Greenwich Village. Measuring approximately 950-square-feet, this duplex loft is perfect for a single or for a no fuss no muss couple that wants to live minimally. And unlike the other tiny spaces of Manhattan, this loft is a light-filled abode with 10-foot tall windows and southern exposures that ensure every day will be a sunny one in the village.
