This one-bedroom condo at Soho‘s 118 Wooster Street is offering up plenty of unique features to its next buyer.

The stairs take you up to a glass atrium, which opens to an 800-square-foot roof deck with a water and electric hookup. For all these indoor and outdoor perks, it’ll cost $2.649 million.

Young Projects, Hudson St. Residence, tribeca penthouse,

Brooklyn architecture firm Young Projects is known for transforming New York properties in inventive and visually stunning ways–just look at how they upended the traditional townhouse for this Williamsburg project. For their Hudson Street Residence project, the firm took the top three levels of a Tribeca building and created a gorgeous 13,000-square-foot penthouse apartment tied together by interior garden courts and topped with a striking roof garden. A continuous cast aluminum surface–which the firm specially designed for this project–gracefully weaves together each living space of the residence.

Nearly two years after selling her chic Greenwich Village penthouse, Rosie O’Donnell finally has a new NYC home (she spends the majority of her time at her other house in Nyack). According to city records, Rosie dropped $8 million on a triplex penthouse at Midtown East‘s 255 East 49th Street. The uber-modern residence is a sprawling 3,563 square feet and has swanky features like a black granite fireplace in the living room, a huge glass walled television in the master bathroom, a sculptural Guggenheim-inspired staircase, an indoor two-person Swedish sauna, and a giant rooftop terrace with views of the Empire and Chrysler Buildings and the East River.

16 Hudson Street, Josh Hartnett, Tribeca celebrities

If you’ve wondered where Josh Hartnett’s been for the past decade, the answer may be in his sprawling Tribeca co-op at 16 Hudson Street, which he just listed for $4.25 million according to LL NYC. Though the corner penthouse looks massive, it’s only one bedroom, which could be why the heartthrob actor-turned-producer decided to sell; his longtime girlfriend Tamsin Egerton is pregnant with their second child.

16 East 78th Street, Aby Rosen house, Aby Rosen Upper East Side

Big-time real estate developer and man about town Aby Rosen has put his extravagant Upper East Side townhouse at 16 East 78th Street on the market for $19,950,000, a good deal more than the $8.4 million he paid for it back in 2004. According to LL NYC, the listing comes just a week after his other nearby home at 5 East 80th Street, which he’s rented for 15 years for nearly $23,500 a month, narrowly escaped the auction block. Rosen expressed interest in buying the property, which could be why he’s decided to part ways with this residence. Listing photos show the art collector’s impressive contemporary collection, as well as the full-full master suite, roof deck, and garden.

16 Chittenden Avenue, Pumpkin House, Cool Listings, Townhouse, Hudson Heights, unique homes, quirky homes,

You may be familiar with the “Pumpkin House,” the extraordinary 1920s townhouse cantilevered across the cliffs at 16 Chittenden Avenue near Manhattan’s highest point in Hudson Heights. The name comes from the home’s Jack-o’-lantern countenance, which bestows motorists along the George Washington Bridge with its anthropomorphic leer. Jack first hit the market last August for $5.25 million, the first time listed since 2011. But still without a buyer, the 17-foot-wide, six-bedroom brick home has a fancy new Sotheby’s listing and a lower ask of $4.25 million.

The $3.395 million two-bedroom co-op, with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, boasts a 3,000-square-foot private terrace, the only one in the city with its own bocce ball court. The court–which also functions as a golf putting green–is joined by a spacious sitting and dining area with a gas barbecue grill, as well as panoramic views of Midtown West. The apartment isn’t too bad either, which a glass atrium over the living and dining areas.
