Built in 1879, this Italianate rowhouse in Bed-Sty “has been meticulously restored while incorporating a modern flair,” as the listing describes. TBo architects oversaw a rear extension that extends to all four floors, while Townhouse Therapy renovated the interiors. Now on the market for $3,895,000, the nearly 4,000-square-foot, five-bedroom home has unique industrial bones, including natural wood tones almost everywhere you look, original brick walls, and exposed concrete columns and beams. But to soften the look, the decor has a modern, Scandinavian feel. There’s also an income-generating garden-level apartment.

Castle Village is not exactly a castle anymore. It’s so named because developer Charles V. Paterno built the five-building co-op complex in 1939 on the site of his former castle-like residence, on the highest bluff above the Hudson River. But there is one remnant of the original estate that remains–four townhouse-like cottages that were once the castle’s outbuildings. It’s very rare that one of these homes hits the market, but here we have number four asking $1,650,000. The charming home has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a finished basement, and a sunroom and patio that overlook the Hudson River and gardens below.

Just two blocks from Greenwood Cemetery and a quick walk to Prospect Park, this lovely Greenwood Heights townhouse at 278 22nd Street is asking $2,150,000. A recent artistic renovation created a modern, almost Scandinavian-inspired interior, with lots of light and clean, open spaces. There are three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, and a rear deck that leads to a large backyard.

Two five-story apartment buildings in the Greenwich Village Historic District will be demolished to make way for a 213-foot-tall luxury condo tower. The Landmarks Preservation Commission on Tuesday approved plans from Madison Realty Capital and City Urban Realty to raze 14-16 Fifth Avenue, an apartment building that sits just north of Washington Square Park. Preservationists campaigned against the demolition of the building since the project was first announced in 2017, citing the history of the 170-year-old structure as significant enough for protection.

The vision of award-winning design studio LOT-EK, this Midtown West penthouse is truly unique. The main living area was transformed from the building’s former mechanical room, and it’s topped off by a bedroom suite created from a 20-foot shipping container. The whole industrial-style interior features concrete walls and exposed steel pipes and beams, and it’s all surrounded by a lush wrap-around terrace overlooking the Empire State Building. Located at 31 West 31st Street, it’s on the market for the first time since it was built in 1996, and it’s asking $995,000.

Long known as a family neighborhood rooted in its pre-war history, the Upper West Side has found a new life in recent years, attracting young professionals and a commercial boom that’s brought countless downtown restaurants uptown. And, of course, along with this transition comes a reimaging of the residential market. Take for example the 44-unit condo at 2505 Broadway. It was designed by Eran Chen and the architects at ODA in their signature modular style, but it retains the classic sophistication the neighborhood is known for. The residences are refined yet modern, and there is an array of forward-looking amenities such as a state-of-the-art gym with adjacent flexible space used as a sports court or movie theater, a pet spa, and an outdoor terrace overlooking the Hudson River.

To be precise, this home is located in the Charlton-King-VanDam Historic District, a tiny section of the Hudson Square neighborhood that has the largest concentration of Federal and Greek Revival style houses in New York City. This two-bedroom duplex is within one such 1830s townhouse at 49 King Street, and it’s currently on the market for $1,350,000. While it retains historic details like exposed brick and the original pine plank flooring, the home also underwent a modern renovation that added contemporary-glam touches.

Located at 76 Washington Place, this Greenwich Village townhouse is often photographed for its pastel-blue facade, complemented by a beautiful blossoming tree out front.

Modern additions complement the home’s 19th-century bones, and there’s a magical English garden, too.
