“From the moment you walk through the door, your mood will be elevated by the natural sunlight streaming in through the grand 16-foot wall of windows,” starts the listing for this three-bedroom duplex in Carroll Gardens. Its abundance of windows is made more striking by their location within several architectural nooks and by the apartment’s double-height configuration. Another perk? it comes with a private roof deck. Located at the ultra-modern Satori condominium, the home is asking $1,398,000.

You don’t have to be super high to get incredible skyline views. This one-bedroom condo’s unique Red Hook location affords it with spectacular vantages of lower Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty, and the Red Hook piers. Asking $995,000, it’s part of the New York Dock Building. Built in 1910, this was the first reinforced steel and concrete building in the United States, and it was converted to modern loft residences in 2017.

A pretty, suburban-like home in Ditmas Park has hit the market for $2.4 million. Recently renovated by the current owner, 498 Westminster Road artfully mixes old and new, with stained glass windows, vaulted ceilings, and bay windows accompanied by all new appliances and top-of-the-line fixtures. Located on a tree-lined street that feels a ways away from city life but is really around the corner from the subway, the freestanding home–with its two porches, backyard, and basement–offers the best of both worlds.
