404 3rd Street, Park Slope, co-op

Could this one-bedroom co-op, located at 404 3rd Street in Park Slope, blend right in in Paris? The broker seems to think so, calling the unit a “precious bijou on Park Slope’s Champs Elysees!” Indeed, the apartment has a little French flair and is located in one of the nicest areas of the Slope, on a tree-lined block of historic townhouses. This particular unit is now on the market with an asking price of $575,000.

82 Charles Street, West Village, one bedroom

A renovation at this one-bedroom apartment, located in the West Village co-op building at 82 Charles Street, has left the unit looking downright adorable. The listing promises it to be a “perfect blend of prewar character and modern conveniences perched on one of the most bucolic blocks in the city.” It’s hard to argue with the location. And we like how more traditional design elements (exposed brick) are paired with some surprising modern additions (built-in ice cream maker!). It’s now on the market asking $899,000.

39 East 12th Street, University Mews, Greenwich Village, co-op

This one-bedroom at University Mews, a co-op building at 39 East 12th Street in Greenwich Village, is more than meets the eye. It’s not a huge apartment, but smart design has allowed for some surprising extra space. That’s no big shock, since the unit’s previous owners were architects. So how much for a one bedroom that’s located between the Village and Union Square, right in the heart of NYU? It has hit the market asking $1.595 million.

152 West 131st Street, one of Harlem's oldest coops, original detail

If you want to live in one of the oldest private co-ops in Harlem, here’s your chance. The 25-foot-wide, 102-foot-long unit at 152 West 131st Street has an interesting floor plan with the living room and dining room on complete opposite sides of a long narrow hallway. But it has charming original details, nice finishes, and it’s in an adorable brownstone, so the $1.1 million pad is definitely worth a look.

103 Prospect Park West, Prospect Park, Prospect Park West co-op

After Prospect Park opened in 1867, a wave of development hit the surrounding area, now known as Park Slope. The stretch of Prospect Park West, which bordered the park, was dubbed the “Gold Coast” for its many lavish mansions. Today, the stretch is still home to some of Brooklyn’s most impressive buildings. This townhouse at 103 Prospect Park West is one of them. A triplex co-op there is on the market for $1.995 million, and it retains much of its pre-war detailing.

44 Gramercy Park North, co-op, Gramercy Park

Paging “Downton Abbey” fans. This Gramercy Park apartment looks more like an English estate than a New York co-op. Located at 44 Gramercy Park North (h/t Curbed), each room is decked out with extravagant features that manage to outdo the others. Elaborate wood carvings, soaring ceilings, stained glass windows, fireplace mantels with sculpture work, the list goes on and on. The listing says, “There is no other place like this.” We think they’re absolutely right.

It’s the perfect season to start drooling over garden apartments. This co-op apartment, at 110 Clinton Avenue in Clinton Hill, has a charming interior as well as a lovely, massive garden with plantings and a 70-year-old maple tree.

22 Irving Place, garden, town residential

It’s unusual for a small apartment to come with such a big private outdoor space, but that’s the case at this one-bedroom co-op apartment up for sale at 22 Irving Place. This Gramercy Park pad is cute on the inside, but even better with its 500-square-foot garden. Not only is it beautifully landscaped, with enough space for a table and barbecue, it’s also got its very own koi pond. How much for this little oasis in one of the most desirable neighborhoods of Manhattan? $999,000.

Brooklyn prewar coop prospect park

235 Lincoln Place, Apt. 2C (l), 20 Plaza Street East, Apt. D10 (r).

Just north and west of Grand Army Plaza and the green expanse of Prospect Park, the heavenly slice of brownstone Brooklyn where Prospect Heights  meets Park Slope is considered one of the best spots in the borough–possibly the city–to live. Its streets offer some of the area’s loveliest historic townhouses and some of Brooklyn’s most gracious prewar apartment buildings, home to notables from Sen. Charles Schumer to Chloë Sevigny.

Near an alphabet soup of subway lines and every amenity you could imagine–from the Brooklyn Museum to Barclays Center–these two classic prewar co-ops claim this prime location, sought-after full-service buildings and pretty Deco-era bones. The first also offers the spacious layout sought by co-op buyers, and at $1.4 million for a large three-bedroom, there’s plenty of room to roam. And though a diminutive studio is best for one (or two who like to be very close) this particular version, asking a double-take-prompting $350k, is on a high floor in one of the area’s loveliest buildings and has the same look–minus a few hundred square feet–as its more spacious sibling.
