Who says New York real estate is dead? Certainly not us. There are great places out there for the taking, and they’re being snapped up by savvy buyers at all price points. Want proof? Here’s a hand-picked selection of our favorite listings that went into contract last week. Each of these recently sold homes in NYC faces one of the city’s best parks — just in time for the warmer weather.
When you’re talking about the city’s best parks, it’s only right to start with the crown jewel. This recently sold home in NYC is a classic Central Park West co-op, sprawling and elegant. It comes complete with 11-foot beamed ceilings and a wood-burning fireplace. And of course, it also comes with that prestigious CPW address. Ann Cutbill Lenane of Douglas Elliman represented the listing.
Windsor Terrace is happily nestled between two of Brooklyn’s finest green spaces: Prospect Park and Green-Wood Cemetery. This recently sold NYC home directly overlooks the leafy, tranquil vistas of Green-Wood. It’s a single-family townhouse beauty, with a large and fabulous backyard. (And so much more.) Katie Feola at Corcoran represented the listing.
And speaking of beautiful backyards, check out the stunner on this recently sold home in NYC. It hardly seems fair for an apartment with this outdoor space to also be directly across from Riverside Park. Plus, a gut renovation created a chef’s kitchen with high-end appliances and in-unit laundry. Debra Hoffman of Brown Harris Stevens was the seller’s agent.
In highly desirable Brooklyn Heights, the closer to the Promenade the better. Who wouldn’t want to overlook the park, the river, and the skyline all at once? Besides its enviable location, this 2-bedroom co-op offers 10-foot ceilings and a huge skylight. It spans more than 1,000 square feet. This recently sold home in NYC was represented by Ria Browne of Compass.
No, your eyes are not deceiving you: Our final recently sold home in NYC cost less than $160K. In addition, it faces Flushing Meadows Corona Park, one of the city’s biggest and best green spaces. (If you only know it from the US Open tennis championships, you’re missing out on a lot — it’s even bigger than Central Park!) This sweet alcove studio has parquet floors and bright, sunny windows. Frank Maiorca of Keystone Realty was the seller’s agent.
