The listing calls this two-bedroom condo on the lower two floors of a converted milk factory at 395 Smith Street “the most unique hideaway in Carroll Gardens,” and we’ll agree there’s some extremely creative use of space at work. Besides that, there are two stories, two bedrooms, and two baths for a reasonable-sounding $875,000 in an expensive and lovely neighborhood.
A renter gets the best of both worlds at this West Village apartment: a modern duplex with lofty, white interiors set in a historic, 1848 Greek Revival building along a cobblestone street. The building in question is 288 West 12th Street, a five-floor, eight-unit co-op. This particular three-bedroom can be rented for a cool $15,000 a month. Over 1,525 square feet, there are details like a wood-burning fireplace, 18-foot ceilings, and customized closets, not to mention access to a 350-square-foot private garden space.
Just two blocks away from the new Second Avenue subway stop at 96th Street is this very adorable duplex co-op. It’s located at 226 East 95th Street, in Yorkville, a small 29-unit elevator cooperative. This particular apartment last sold in 2014 for $475,000 and is now asking $575,000. A spiral staircase from a brick-walled living room leads up to the single bedroom, which has a sliding door out to the lush private terrace.
Editor’s note: Original reports listed George Condo as the buyer of the Carhart Mansion’s penthouse, belonging to Tamara Mellon, but he actually bought a different unit in the building from Merrill Lynch’s Do Woo Kim.
You’ll be hard pressed to find a pair of discounted Jimmy Choos, but the iconic shoe brand’s co-founder Tamara Mellon didn’t fare as well when it came to her Upper East Side penthouse, which sits atop the historic Carhart Mansion at 3 East 95th Street. Mellon bought the Carnegie Hill apartment from Seagram heir Charles Bronfman Jr. and first listed it for sale in 2014 for $34 million. After several price chops and an attempt as a $85,000/month rental, it’s finally found a buyer reports LL NYC. Contemporary artist George Condo paid $19.8 million for the condo (no pun intended), much less than the most recent ask of $25 million.
A one-bedroom apartment on the Upper West Side for around a million seems almost too good to be true as it is; this townhouse duplex at 172 West 82nd Street is all that plus a terrace and a wood-burning fireplace for $1.01 million. While the interior reads more East Village than Upper West with two walls of exposed brick, a fresh renovation is uptown-efficient. This walk-up co-op is in a charming bay-windowed brownstone on an equally charming tree-lined block.
This pint-sized penthouse perched atop an elevator building at 368 West 23rd Street in West Chelsea manages to pack everything you need into two levels of renovated, sun-filled space and look good doing it. Asking $1.6 million, the one-bedroom co-op is freshly renovated with two full baths, new hardwood floors, central air conditioning, a wood-burning fireplace, and a washer/dryer. But it’s the impressive expanses of terrace that make the biggest impression.
This is the home that will lure New Yorkers onto the ferry and straight to Staten Island. It’s a unique property–a duplex townhouse that’s part of a cooperative–with a stunning interior. Under 18 foot ceilings, the main level is lined with exposed brick, wood ceilings, and a ceramic tile floor, alongside a gas fireplace and massive windows. It’s located at 48 Bay Street Landing, right off the waterfront and within walking distance to the Staten Island ferry. And its asking price of $875,000–far lower than similar properties in Manhattan and Brooklyn–is sure to bring in potential buyers from around the city.
This Carroll Gardens duplex offers ton of space to spread out. A private entrance from the 1930s brick building, at 483 Court Street, leads into a two bedroom, spanning 1,250 square feet over two floors. There’s also an entire basement below the unit, as well as a private deck and garden off the lower level. This is the only apartment on the market at the quaint five-unit cooperative, and it’s asking $1.495 million.
“Never Say Goodbye” certainly doesn’t hold true when it comes to Bon Jovi’s real estate game. Exactly two years ago, the Jersey rocker unloaded his Soho penthouse for a hefty $34 million, shortly thereafter picking up a sprawling duplex condo at new celeb-favorite 150 Charles Street for $13 million. But now, as Curbed tells us, he’s on the move again, listing the West Village pad for $17.25 million. That upgraded price tag will get you over 4,000 square feet of contemporary interiors, plus a massive 52′ x 29′ landscaped terrace and two smaller balconies.
This Union Square apartment has certainly seen its fair share of scandal. Notorious former Congressman Anthony Weiner, along with wife and Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, moved into the duplex rental at Zeckendorf Towers in November 2014, just after his failed mayoral run and sexting scandal. And now that Abedin filed for divorce (nearly nine years since the couple announced their separation) after Weiner pled guilty to sending sexual text messages to a minor, they may finally be parting ways with the contemporary home. Three days ago, the Post reported that the unit hit the market for $11,900 a month, but the listing has since been pulled, perhaps from the publicity or because it was rented.
