This duplex at 50 3rd Avenue in Boerum Hill definitely looks like it could’ve been designed by Chip and Joanna Gaines. Though we’re pretty sure they didn’t travel to Brooklyn to design this two-bedroom condo, it has plenty of their famous “modern farmhouse” design elements, most notably reclaimed wood on the walls and ceiling. The aesthetic is carried over to the backyard, where twinkly lights and climbing vines set the stage for a true outdoor oasis. The apartment has just listed for $1,474,000.

The dramatic Chelsea duplex owned by actress Susan Sarandon for nearly 30 years has hit the market for $7.9 million. Located at 147 West 15th Street within the luxury co-op building La Fabrique, the massive 6,000-square-foot apartment boasts a flexible layout with six bedrooms, four exposures, and a gallery foyer on the eighth floor. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, the Academy Award winner, a native of Queens, said she plans to downsize to a smaller pad nearby and has no intention of leaving the city. “I’ve always been a New Yorker and I’ll continue to be a New Yorker,” Sarandon said.

The El Dorado is iconic for so many reasons–its Art Deco architecture, its design by Emery Roth, its two-part tower silhouette–but nothing can beat those Central Park views. And this 15th- and 16th-floor duplex at the classic Upper West Side co-op has 36 windows through which to see these views, along with a 50-foot private balcony. Just listed for $19,999,000, the home has four bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and tons of classic pre-war details.

It’s probably still shocking to old-time New Yorkers that getting a two-bedroom for under $1 million in the East Village is considered a deal, but that’s the case today. This duplex co-op at 103 East 10th Street comes in at $995,000, and in addition to its two floors and two bedrooms, it’s got a perfectly peaceful private patio.

The West Village‘s Printing House condo at 421 Hudson Street has been a sought-after loft building for more than three decades, thanks to its location near both Hudson River Park and Soho and its open homes with high ceilings and massive windows. Even more coveted, though, are the homes along the Printing House’s mews, a 200-foot gated and landscaped lane stretching from Leroy to Clarkson Streets that was designed by Gunn Landscape Architecture. Now on the market for $3,495,000 is a two-bedroom, 1,500-square-foot duplex on the mews that has a super sleek design and convenient layout.

Tribeca loft living is at its finest at this four-bedroom riverfront duplex.

Located at 204 West 92nd Street, the 1,100-square-foot apartment has three bedrooms on two levels, as well as a sunny garden patio that’s “perfect for grilling, entertaining, or private sunbathing,” says the listing.
