During her teenage years (h/t Wall Street Journal), actress and Goop founder Gwyneth Paltrow lived in this grand Upper East Side townhouse off Central Park at 9 East 92nd Street. According to city property records, her parents, late producer Bruce Paltrow and actress Blythe Danner, owned the seven-bedroom home from 1984 to 1992. According to the Journal, Paltrow was 11 when her family moved from California to NYC, where she attended the prestigious Spence School, an all-girls private school just around the corner from her then-home.

Built in 1890, this townhouse at 639 Macon Street in Bed-Stuy has done a nice job of preserving some historic details while also completing a full designer renovation.

For all this, the house is asking $2,695,000.

If townhouses were students, this Cobble Hill home would definitely be the teacher’s pet. Unlike most townhouses anywhere in New York City, it has a 25-foot wide adjacent lot that’s used as gated parking, as well as 3,500 square feet of outdoor space that looks like it could be right out of a Napa Valley vineyard. The $12,750,000 house is currently configured as an owner’s triplex and an income-generating garden-level apartment, though it could easily be transformed into a grand, single-family residence.

Plus, it’s directly adjacent to the lovely Jane Street Garden, of which it has perfect views.

A velour reading nook built into the side of a cabinet, candy-colored accents everywhere, an abstract mural on the backyard fence–these are just some of the funky, whimsical touches you’ll find throughout this Brooklyn Heights townhouse. Located at 286 Hicks Street and asking $6,250,000, the five-bedroom home “encourages you to really live and play your best life,” as the listing says.

This uber-modern townhouse at 107 South 4th Street looks nothing like any of its Williamsburg neighbors, with its honeycomb and concrete facade. And inside, the surprises keep coming. The layout was designed as an “upside-down house” so that the kitchen and main living spaces could take advantage of the East River and skyline views, and all throughout, you’ll find “fine-art, high-design, and Mid-Century modern pedigree,” as the listing puts it. The four-bedroom house is on the market for $6,500,000.
