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

Cool Listings, Greenwich Village, Interiors

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.

Cool Listings, Flatiron

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.

Cool Listings, Interiors, Upper East Side

150 east 61st street, lenox hill, co-op, corcoran

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.

Cool Listings, Greenpoint, Interiors

114 india street, greenpoint, rental, outdoor space, halstead

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.

Cool Listings, East Village

This impeccably decorated one-bedroom garden maisonette at 645 East 11th Street has East Village charm, international flair and a claim to the “largest private garden in Manhattan.” Adding to the apartment’s unique style is the treasure trove of interior details that reflect the owners’ extensive travels to Asia, Bali and elsewhere including ceiling fans from the Metropole Hotel in Vietnam, a rosewood fireplace mantel, 19th century mahogany doors, a 19th century Chinese armoire and 10-foot teak walls surrounding a dozen bamboo trees in teak planters in the massive back garden.

549 East 11th Street, compass, east village, OLGA VIEIRA, koko company

We are loving this East Village duplex, which boasts a front door straight out to a huge, elevated common terrace that acts like a private park for the residents of this boutique condo at 549 East 11th Street. Inside, a unique, whimsical interior has been decorated by owner Olga Vieira, owner of the yarn-turned-travel business the Koko Company. The apartment was last purchased in 1999 for $180,500 and now it’s asking $1.65 million. And if you can’t afford that, there’s still a chance to Airbnb it.

Chelsea, Cool Listings

Though 634 square feet might not be an endless amount of living space, this one-bedroom Chelsea condo at 133 West 22nd Street packs in a lot of livability, starting with high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, a well-appointed kitchen, a washer-dryer, central air/heating and FIOS wiring. And that’s just the apartment–the building even has an outdoor pool. For $4,650 a month you could look forward to spending next summer poolside.

Cool Listings, Design, Interiors, Soho

11 charlton street, soho, co-op, corcoran, outdoor spaces

Yes, that’s a magic carpet hanging from the ceiling of this SoHo co-op… or at least we’re pretty sure it is. This apartment, located at 11 Charlton Street, is actually full of quirks. Besides the ceiling decor, a sliding partition separates the living room from the bedroom transforming this from a studio to a one-bedroom apartment. Outside, a koi pond sits in the spacious, 700-square-foot private garden. This unit has been on and off the market for about a year now, asking as high as $1.795 million. Now it’s back on with a new listing price of $1.55 million.
