All five stories of this Upper East Side townhouse are just as classic and formal as the stately exterior might suggest. But on the roof, an enchanting garden complete with a small pool, Central Park views, and an outdoor kitchen add a welcome dose of fun. Located at 11 East 93rd Street, just off the park, the home underwent a renovation and restoration by architect and designer Reza Nouranian and is now asking $16,500,000.

At first glance, this one-bedroom condo at 407 East 12th Street is pretty standard, from its contemporary interiors to the $1.6 million price tag. But this East Village home is quite special thanks to a duplex layout, sunny solarium, and a landscaped multi-level terrace.

For classic Upper West Side living, there’s nothing quite like the co-ops that line West End Avenue. But this penthouse at 465 West End Avenue takes things a step further, exuding all the pre-war elegance you’d hope for, along with a glass solarium and a massive, 2,900-square-foot terrace. It’s currently asking $2,775,000.

Take one look at the old-world wine cellar at this Park Slope brownstone, and it’ll make perfect sense that the owners are selling because they’re winemakers relocating to California. And the absolutely gorgeous home, listed for $6 million, also has plenty of places to enjoy a nice glass of vino, including four outdoor spaces. The townhouse was completely renovated, retaining its impeccable historic details, while adding modern conveniences and a wonderful, income-producing apartment on the garden floor.

The interior of this one-bedroom Upper East Side condo measures a not-too-shabby 719 square feet, but the amazing terrace is nearly twice that size at 1,100 square feet. It’s set up with four separate areas for meditating, lounging, dining, and even playing ping pong. Located at 400 East 90th Street, the apartment was recently listed for $695,000.

We hate to use the term millennial, but for that younger generation with the means to buy a luxury condo, this Nomad home has all the stylish design, tech features, and outdoor space that would be on the checklist. Located at 76 Madison Avenue and just listed for $3,450,000, the two-bedroom apartment was renovated by renowned NYC and NOLA firm Brockschmidt & Coleman, and it has everything from hidden televisions to app-controlled lighting and shades.

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.

In 2016, Jennifer Lawrence picked up a $15.6 million penthouse on the Upper East Side. She must have really wanted to offload it, because last summer, she listed it for $15,450,000 and dropped it to $12 million earlier this month. According to city property records, the Oscar-winning actress ultimately sold the home at 400 East 67th Street for $9,900,000, taking a nearly $6 million loss. Listing agent Pamela D’Arc of Compass declined to comment on the sale.

At first look, you might assume that this townhouse at 580 Driggs Avenue in North Williamsburg is new construction, but it was actually built in 1899 and completely gut renovated inside and out in 2019. The “custom artist’s home,” as the listing calls it, was designed as “an airy open layout and plenty of room to spread out, work from home, or relax on the roof deck or in the garden.” Listed for $2,950,000, it’s just over 2,300 square feet and has four bedrooms.

This Greenwich Village co-op at 2 East 12th Street is the perfect year-round oasis. For those cold winter months, the interiors are super cozy, with two working fireplaces. But in the summer, the backyard is a true retreat. It’s two levels, along with a side patio and, most notably, a sunken Japanese-style cedar hot tub. You’ll also find a large Ipe wood deck with a built-in banquette, plenty of planters, and a cedar potting shed for all those gardening needs.
