Atop a 1909 former button factory building at 139 West 19th Street in Chelsea, this penthouse co-op, asking $4,498,000, features traditional loft architecture with the rare luxury of a 1,600 square foot private landscaped urban garden.

The three-unit Kips Bay townhouse at 308 East 30th Street is 21 feet wide and beautifully renovated, from its garden apartment to landscaped rooftop deck with Empire State Building views. But the most unique thing about this home, asking $7,500,000, is definitely the heated outdoor in-ground lap pool on the back patio.

This two-family Bed-Stuy townhouse at 333 Gates Avenue is comprised of nearly 5,000 square feet of interior living space in the form of a 2,800-square-foot triplex above a garden-level apartment with a fully finished basement. But “Backyard Envy” might be the key attribute of this covetable brownstone. The team from the hit Bravo series by the same name designed the home’s back patio with a full kitchen and gas fireplace–part of 1,400 square feet of fabulously finished outdoor space including a roof garden and a 175-square-foot deck off the kitchen. All of it can be yours for $3,700,000.

Actress and comedian Amy Schumer is selling her Upper West Side penthouse at 190 Riverside Drive, the Wall Street Journal reports. Asking $15,000,000, Schumer purchased what she calls her “Manhattan dream apartment” for $12,150,000 in 2016. Surrounded on every side and on the roof above by 3,000 square feet of verdant planted terraces, and centered around a glass-wrapped solarium living room, the five-bedroom, 4,500-square-foot condominium is indeed a New York City dream home–even if it’s no longer a secret. Schumer told the Journal she and her husband, chef Chris Fischer, are moving–likely to Brooklyn–to be closer to their son’s school.

This 25-foot-wide townhouse at 330 Convent Avenue in the landmarked Hamilton Heights historic district has lost none of its original mansion grandeur. Though its layout is very much in the style of the traditional Victorian-era mansion, the 6,400-square-foot, five-story property has modern convenience–from the elevator to the custom security system–on its side. Well maintained and updated, the home, now asking $6,250,000, features a landscaped private backyard, a gated private garden entrance to a separate studio apartment, 11-foot ceilings, and original details.
