This one-bedroom top-floor loft at 12 East 14th Street at Fifth Avenue in Greenwich Village near Union Square has plenty merits for loft lovers. But the best bonus might be the co-op’s private 1,000-square-foot landing strip-sized roof terrace.

If you’re dreaming of a Park Slope brownstone but don’t have the required millions to spend, this one-bedroom co-op at 420 4th Street just a few blocks from Prospect Park asking $749,000 might be the answer. The parlor-floor home has 11-foot ceilings, pocket doors, stained-glass transom windows, a working wood-burning fireplace and even a private deck set in the neighborhood’s verdant collection of back gardens.

Spanning an entire block, this sprawling penthouse at 5 East 17th Street boasts four bedrooms, two private elevators, a 25-foot glass atrium, and a 4,000-square-foot “private sky yard” with a swimming pool, fire pit, and gorgeous city views. No luxury has been spared in this fully-renovated, sleek, and abundantly sunny condo, centrally located on the border of Flatiron and Union Square. A previous sale fell through at the last moment, and now the $15,500,000 unit is back on the market.

This pretty two-bedroom penthouse co-op at 115 East 90th Street, asking $2,295 million, is the picture of classic pre-war charm.  Its best feature: It’s wrapped on every side with landscaped terraces surrounding the home with a garden paradise no matter where you look.

More greenery in every direction

Cool Listings, Williamsburg

Living in a historic firehouse is cool enough as it is, but this 4,652-square-foot carriage house at 11 Scholes Street in Williamsburg also comes with just about every other cool thing you could imagine finding in a Brooklyn pad. The three-story home, asking $5.2 million, starts with a garage and a sleek workspace/art studio and adds walls of glass and a private outdoor paradise, complete with a Japanese-style bamboo garden and luxurious outdoor shower.

Take a look, you won’t want to leave

The penthouse at 71 Washington Place may be petite, but it gives you the best of several enviable worlds, starting with Greenwich Village townhouse living. The co-op studio’s interiors are freshly-renovated with plenty of charm and good taste. Best of all, top-floor status gives you a nice, big private rooftop paradise from which to gaze out over the city below. It’s asking just about $1 million.

29 West 19th Street, Chelsea, Penthouses, outdoor spaces

Landscaped decks and terraces are always a luxury in the city, and this penthouse at 29 West 19th Street between the Flatiron district and Chelsea has so much private outdoor space in the form of four terraces and a roof deck that you’re just steps from al fresco no matter which room you’re in. And while 2,242 square feet of indoor space is a lot of living room, it’s the 1,700+ square feet of outdoor space that sets this three-bedroom duplex penthouse, asking $5.8 million, apart.

Cool Listings, Tribeca

41 Warren Street, Tribeca, Outdoor spaces

We can imagine errant children in this worth-every-bit-of-$9.995 million Tribeca duplex penthouse being sent, for punishment, to the room without a terrace. The listing for 41 Warren Street in Tribeca calls it “Parisian perfection” in reference to the authentic Parisian wrought-iron balconies that wrap the apartment’s many terraces; a hat tip to the Scandinavian countries is in order for the wood-paneled sauna. And 3,000 square-feet of chic, subtly luxurious interiors would be worthy of envy under any flag.

Summer feels far away… but this apartment’s lovely patio will at least bring back memories of New York’s warmer months. The very private, enclosed outdoor space is a part of this one-bedroom at the Lenox Hill cooperative 150 East 61st Street. After selling in 2010 for $400,000 it’s back on the market asking $599,000. The ground-floor abode boasts some unique design quirks like colorful wallpaper and decor, but a new buyer will have an opportunity to make the interior–as well as that awesome patio–their own.

Every winter, New Yorkers mourn the outdoor space they can’t enjoy due to cold weather. This Greenpoint apartment has solved that problem, by installing a fire pit within a charming private patio. This jealousy-inducing outdoor space is tacked onto a two-bedroom duplex unit from 114 India Street, a condo built in 2008. It’s being offered as a short-term rental–completely furnished, with utilities and weekly housekeeping included–for $6,000 a month.
