This one-bedroom condo at Soho‘s 118 Wooster Street is offering up plenty of unique features to its next buyer. For one, the 1,250-square-foot interior got a cozy sleeping nook to hold a second bedroom. Then, under 20-foot ceilings, a massive great room, plus a formal bedroom, await. The stairs take you up to a glass atrium, which opens to an 800-square-foot roof deck with a water and electric hookup. For all these indoor and outdoor perks, it’ll cost $2.649 million.

131 Perry Street, West Village, meatpacking district

Located on a tree-lined, cobblestone street in the West Village, an apartment at 131 Perry Street has hit the market for $1.895 million. Currently configured as a two-bedroom, two-bathroom, the home boasts beautiful exposed brick walls and ceilings and a wood burning fireplace. The barrel-vaulted, brick arched ceilings make this a New York City gem, a design element reminiscent of Grand Central Station’s ceilings. This unit is one of 14 lofts in a boutique co-op, located within walking distance to Hudson River Park and the Whitney Museum.

The listing says “Blink and you’ll miss it!” and this diminutive duplex at 15 Jones Street in the West Village is definitely not one to miss. To be fair, the warning refers to charm-filled Jones Street, the city’s sixth-smallest street, not the fact that this chic retreat on the market for $900,000 is only a bit wider than the average queen-sized bed. The co-op’s two floors add a surprising amount of space, separating living and sleeping, with a bathroom on each floor making it great for couples, entertaining and guests.

Chelsea, Cool Listings, Interiors

If you love to entertain–and you think privacy is overrated–this two-bedroom Chelsea loft at 130 West 17th Street is definitely the apartment for you. Asking a lofty $4.95 million, the listing doesn’t mention square footage, though past listings have it at about 2,700 square feet. And though it’s described as “intimate enough for private living,” it’s definitely “blurring the lines between public and private spaces” with a shower that’s as crowd-friendly as the home’s three entertainment zones.

Camp Uncas, Adirondacks, JP Morgan vacation home

A new owner has claimed the stately Great Camp Uncas compound, nestled among the Adirondack forest and lakefront. The secluded property was built in 1895 by Brooklynite William West Durant, credited with perfecting the style of the Adirondack Great Camps of the Gilded Age. This particular camp—at 1,500 acres—was impressive enough for financier J.P. Morgan to purchase it in 1897. It was used as a vacation home for him and his family the next 50 years. Since then the property has traded hands several times, and a parcel of it last hit the market in 2015 for $3.25 million. An unsuccessful sales run caused a price drop, in 2016, to $2.7 million. According to the brokerage firm Franklin Ruttan, one lucky owner has snapped it up.

Bed Stuy, Cool Listings, Interiors

481 Greene avenue, cool listings, Bedford Stuyvesant, Rentals

In a sea of cookie-cutter rentals, there are a rare few that look like home–or even like an interesting place to live. Located at 481 Greene Avenue in what seems to be the new neighborhood of choice for the city’s interior design professionals, this two-bedroom brownstone apartment goes far beyond the average Bed-Stuy rental when it comes to good looks. The gut-renovated 1,100-square-foot first floor unit is one of only six, and it comes with the rare bonus of a private back yard.

From the mother-of-pearl shower with aromatic steam to the vaulted mahogany master closet, this dark and luxurious lair is stocked from stem to stern with custom perks that go way beyond the $7.9 million loft’s private key-locked elevator and smart home system. Located in a classic pre-war Soho loft building at 459 West Broadway, the 3,150-square-foot space is even outfitted with a secret home gym hidden behind a moving bookcase.

Cool Listings, Interiors, Park Slope

401 8th avenue, park slope, co-ops, compas

This two-bedroom cooperative, at 401 8th Avenue in Park Slope, is pretty as can be. After last selling in 2011 for $480,000, the pad got a full renovation to make the interior “magazine worthy cool,” as the listing puts it. It’d be hard to argue with that, considering they’ve hung a hammock underneath the living room window, added open wood shelving, and lined the walls with interesting artwork. All the while, original details like moldings and parquet floors were kept. It all makes for an appealing property now on the market for $895,000.

136 west 24th street, triplemint, chelsea, co-op

136 West 24th Street was originally built as horse stables in the 1890s for patrons of the historic Ladies Mile shopping district. Today it’s quite the stunning loft apartment, boasting thick wooden beams, 10-foot-high tin ceilings, three bedrooms, and three full bathrooms. And its Chelsea locale is right in the heart of the neighborhood, an easy walk to both Madison Square Park and the Highline. After the co-op last sold in 2011 for $2.45 million to the playwright Martha Pichey (mother to actor Rafi Gavron), it has hit the market for $2.8 million.

Judy Garland apartment

Since it arrived on the market in 2016 for $16.75 million, 6sqft has admired this three-bedroom co-op in the iconic Dakota for its history as the (alleged) onetime home of the equally iconic Judy Garland as well as for its colorful makeover by trendy young designer Sasha Bikoff. Now the apartment, which was owned by the designer’s late mother, former pianist, ballerina, and Studio 54 denizen Jacqueline Bikoff, has reportedly entered contract at its recent asking price of $10 million, according to Mansion Global. Bikoff bought the elegant Upper West Side pad in 2010 for $13 million from renowned bridge players Roy Welland and Christal Henner.
