345 East 57th Street, wraparound terrace, enclosed solarium

Who needs a shiny new development when you can have a penthouse in the highly sought-after Sutton Place neighborhood that has brag-worthy qualities like soaring coffered ceilings, a solarium, and terraces on all four sides.

But for some reason, it just can’t seem to sell. The apartment at 345 East 57th Street first appeared on the market a year ago, asking $6.5 million. Then it was briefly taken off the market in December after a price cut to $5.9 million. Now it’s back, hoping the third time is a charm, and that an avid fan of Edith Wharton novels drops in with $5.1 million in her pocket.

Cool Listings, Interiors, Park Slope

513 4th Street, landmark building, built by John T. Allan of Allan Brothers, turret bay facade

One of Park Slope’s most recognizable homes is available for $4.29 million. The 4,800-square-foot, semi-detached townhouse—which has been featured in numerous music videos, as well as in the movie Moonstruck—is one of a row of townhouses on 4th Street built by the Allan Brothers in 1892. A five-bedroom triplex with a beautiful garden, this red brick and stone Romanesque Queen Anne townhouse features such romantic details as a turret bay façade, a castle-style balcony, transom stained glass, and a Spanish-tiled spire with an ornamental finial. The terracotta roof of this landmark dwelling also stands out with elaborate cornices. And we haven’t even stepped inside yet.
