Asking $3,600,000, this unique duplex condominium at 606a Third Street steps from Prospect Park’s grand entrance comprises the top unit in a two-unit Park Slope townhouse. But it’s not just any Park Slope townhouse: This unusual home has an Arts-and-Crafts style facade that stands out among the neighborhood’s brick and brownstone. The home’s interiors have been designed to architectural perfection with enchanting use of colors, materials, and space, thoughtfully curated by the owner, photographer Leslie Simitch. Original details have been preserved and bespoke additions have enhanced the home’s historic bones. The two-story home feels like an entire house (for far less than the cost of an actual Park Slope townhouse) with three fireplaces, three bedrooms, and three outdoor spaces.

The two-bedroom loft condo formerly owned by “America’s Next Top Model” creative director Jay Manuel has just resurfaced on the market for $3,250,000.

Set among a corridor of modern residences that lie between quaint Carroll Gardens and industrial Gowanus, this three-bedroom duplex condo at 345 Carroll Street, now asking $3,995,000, has just about everything you could ask for in its 2,912 square feet of living space. The garden floor condo is even blessed with the urban rarity of a private one-car garage as well as a massive private outdoor terrace. With an entire floor of “bonus” spaces that include a mudroom, laundry room, and two offices, it’s almost like having a townhouse with the ease of condo living.

Situated on cobblestoned Water Street in Lower Manhattan, this two-bedroom duplex condo, asking $1,575,000, sits behind the charming facade of what is said to be the borough’s third-oldest surviving building. Built around 1773, the listing tells us, the Captain Joseph Rose House at 273 Water Street is “the oldest dwelling and shop, and the third oldest building surviving in Manhattan.” The apartment within, however, offers every contemporary convenience, with the extra perk of a private roof deck with World Trade Center and city skyline views.

Capping the reinvention of the former Hotel Wales at 1295 Madison Avenue as luxury condominium residences, a newly-constructed 4,179-square-foot penthouse spanning the building’s highest floor has just arrived on the market. The $23,000,000 home in the Carnegie Hill Historic District contains five bedrooms and seven bathrooms; its biggest asset, however, may be the 3,114 square feet of wrap-around terraces on two levels with Central Park views, an outdoor kitchen with a wet bar, a fireplace, and a butler’s pantry.
