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.

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.

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.

Cool Listings, Interiors, Midtown West

Now that we’re in the dog days of summer, nothing looks more appealing than a spacious, well-designed roof deck that just happens to have a water tower perched above it. That’s the case at this Midtown West condo at 40 West 55th Street, now on the market for $2.5 million. The one-bedroom penthouse is literally surrounded on four sides by an outdoor space lined with greenery. Inside, a skylight and southern, western and northern exposures that look out onto the lush terrace result in a modern, bright interior.

On the kind of West Village street that makes you curse Google for taking the photos on such a sunny day, this quintessential historic brick townhouse is surrounded by others like it on a block we can’t see ever wanting to leave. The one-bedroom rental apartment on the second floor of 191 West 10th Street has the usual charms of a Village aerie: exposed brick, high ceilings, big windows–but the unexpected win is that rare and coveted city haven, private outdoor space in the form of a large and lovely terrace (which likely helps to sell the prospect of $5,050 a month rent.)

Cool Listings, Interiors, Tribeca

Inside this massive Tribeca penthouse you’ve got custom marble, bronze and mahogany details, not to mention light fixtures crafted by a Steampunk designer. The spectacular pad spans two floors over 5,100 square feet and holds four bedrooms and six bathrooms. Outside, over 2,500 square feet, there’s a fully irrigated and planted terrace, as well as a roof deck complete with an outdoor kitchen and heated infinity pool. Simply put: anywhere you go at this penthouse apartment, now asking $21 million at the Tribeca condo 169 Hudson Street, you will be impressed.

The thoroughly modern gut-renovation of this 1869 single family home at 281 West 4th Street is the creation of noted starchitect Anabelle Selldorf, and we’re assuming that its romantic-contemporary decor was inspired by the owners’ creative talents. Luxuries, comforts, and conveniences fill this somewhat narrow, 2,720-square-foot historic private home, from a finished and functional cellar to a planted and enchanted roof garden. For the why-own-when-you-can-rent-for-more monthly price of $29,000, you can step into this dream of a West Village townhouse, cue up a rooftop party and fire up the parlor-floor movie screen.

543 Scarborough Road, cool listings, briarcliff, westchester, ossining, midcentury modern, modern house, frank lloyd wright, outdoor spaces, waterfall

Nestled in a wooded enclave in the tranquil town of Briarcliff Manor in Westchester County, NY, this striking midcentury modern house was built by noted architect of the day Roy Sigvard Johnson, who may have been an apprentice to Frank Lloyd Wright, according to Curbed–and it’s evident that he admired Wright’s work. The house, one of several east coast modern gems, is unique inside and out, embracing the beauty of the land surrounding it. Most amazing are features–like a stone waterfall that ends in a heated Jacuzzi and a folded glass wall that wraps the home’s stone paths and gardens–where nature and house meet. The 2,574 square-foot four-bedroom house at 543 Scarborough Road is asking $1.1 million.
