Picture yourself on this lovely south-facing private terrace with a cup of coffee and the newspaper. Wouldn’t that be a welcome change to the typical New York City morning routine? While this little set-up works perfectly as a space to enjoy a peaceful moment alone, it would also be ideal for entertaining guests.

Our most popular sale for February 24 has more going for it than the idyllic private terrace, though. This Upper West Side 1-bedroom contains thoughtful built-ins and glass pocket doors. It’s located in a walk-up brownstone building, which is pet-friendly and a block and a half from Central Park. Based on the unit number, the apartment is likely located on the fourth floor, which means three flights of stairs. The trade-off for being on a high floor, however, is ample sunlight and open views from the private terrace.
