How’s this for a work-from-home setup? The top floor of this triplex penthouse at 1158 Fifth Avenue is a “jewel box” solarium with a glass-enclosed arched atrium and five picture windows overlooking Central Park. Listed for $15 million, the four-bedroom home is classic Upper East Side with oversized living spaces, two landscaped terraces, and even a separate one-bedroom guest residence within the building.

At first glance, this one-bedroom condo at 407 East 12th Street is pretty standard, from its contemporary interiors to the $1.6 million price tag. But this East Village home is quite special thanks to a duplex layout, sunny solarium, and a landscaped multi-level terrace.

For classic Upper West Side living, there’s nothing quite like the co-ops that line West End Avenue. But this penthouse at 465 West End Avenue takes things a step further, exuding all the pre-war elegance you’d hope for, along with a glass solarium and a massive, 2,900-square-foot terrace. It’s currently asking $2,775,000.

Part of the Greenwich Village Historic District, the Federal-style rowhouse at 41 Barrow Street was originally built in 1828 as a “two and one-half storied wood building with [a] brick front in Flemish bond, steeply pitched roof and dormer window,” according to the 1969 LPC designation. For all the historic charm it oozes from the outside, the interior has undergone a thorough renovation that kept many of the original details—wide-plank wood floors, two of the three original fireplace mantels, exposed wood beams—while gaining some modern upgrades. Of these, a solarium built on the parlor floor is the highlight, bringing plenty of light into the home and better flow to a somewhat tricky layout. The historic West Village property is now on the market for a cool $5,100,000.

This floor-through loft is indeed unique, as the listing claims. While the second-floor walk-up comes with over 1,000 square feet of interior space, it’s the wrap-around terrace and magical greenhouse that set this Flatiron co-op apart from so many others. 6sqft brought news of the 41 East 19th Street loft’s $5,000/month rental price back in February; now it’s for sale, asking $1.8 million. In addition to all of the interesting architectural details and loads of sunshine, the apartment comes with an alternate floor plan that shows you how to carve out a three-bedroom home and still have room to spare.

In the middle of a lovely cobblestoned block in the coveted West Village, the five-story Federal-style townhouse at 334 West 12th Street was built in 1853, but its charms hold up against its neighbors in the Greenwich Village Historic District and beyond. Asking $6.95 million, the 20-foot-wide single-family townhouse has two entrances, five bedrooms, a rear garden that looks like something out of an Italian villa, a large south-facing terrace with views of the Freedom Tower, and its crowning jewel, a skylit solarium brimming with greenery.

This unusual East Village one-bedroom duplex condo in the Village Mews at 407 East 12th Street checks all the boxes without shouting–that is, it lets a rare and fabulous garden paradise do the talking, which in this case means asking for $1.695 million. The 750-square-foot home was recently renovated from tip to toe, and the design is tasteful without being generically “luxe.” And while this not-huge condo wouldn’t work for a growing family or a communal crew, it looks heavenly for anyone seeking, an “oasis away from city living” while situated on a lovely street in the heart of what could be called an oasis of city living, with its 24-hour energy and unending list of destinations of every kind.

A gut-renovated four-story townhouse on Garfield Place has just hit the market, asking $7.5 million. The owners of the “Lighthouse,” as it’s been christened, paid $2.6 million for it back in 2012. Then they hauled in the big guns—CWB Architects, Tamara Eaton Design, and Pilaster Contracting—to give it an intense two-year makeover. The result is a gorgeous five-bedroom home with Dinesen Douglas fir floors, a solarium, 880 square feet of exterior space, and a new two-story glass extension and rear wall.
