Cobble Hill, Cool Listings

If townhouses were students, this Cobble Hill home would definitely be the teacher’s pet. Unlike most townhouses anywhere in New York City, it has a 25-foot wide adjacent lot that’s used as gated parking, as well as 3,500 square feet of outdoor space that looks like it could be right out of a Napa Valley vineyard. The $12,750,000 house is currently configured as an owner’s triplex and an income-generating garden-level apartment, though it could easily be transformed into a grand, single-family residence.

Cool Listings, Park Slope

This three-bedroom condo has much of what you’d expect from a home within a Park Slope brownstone, but it’s also got a couple of tricks up its sleeve. First, the lower level on the garden floor retains the home’s original brick arches, which run the entire length of the space. And then, the gorgeous rear garden was designed by Future Green Studio, who also worked on projects at The Met, Nowadays, and the Brooklyn Children’s Museum. Located at 134 Berkeley Place, the home is asking $2,575,000.

The Metal Shutter Houses is a contemporary condo designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Shigeru Ban in 2008, at the beginning of West Chelsea‘s starchitect boom. Today, despite its many notable neighbors, the boutique building at 524 West 19th Street still offers some of the most covetable homes. The penthouse unit is now listed for a reduced $8.9 million. Not only does the home span two floors, but it has a 20-foot, upward-pivoting, glass wall that opens to a large terrace to create a massive indoor/outdoor living space. There’s also another private terrace off the master bedroom, two balconies, and a huge roof deck complete with a hot tub. Oh, and let’s not forget the direct views of Hudson Yards and the Empire State Building.

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.

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.
