CORE’s Jarrod Guy Randolph recently landed on the small screen, showing off his $4.995 million penthouse listing at the Upper East Side’s Isis condominium to CBS’s cameras. The piece was great — we’re sure the spacious full-floor spread and private outdoor spaces inspired plenty of viewer real estate envy — but it only told part of the story behind this luxurious listing at 303 East 77th Street

When Jarrod, a Forbes “30 Under 30″ recipient who joined CORE last spring, got the listing, the penthouse was completely empty, and he could tell that buyers were having a difficult time envisioning what the nontraditional space (with four bedrooms and four private terraces in all) would look and feel like as a fully furnished and functional home. “We really needed to furnish the place to show that there’s a lot you can do with it, whether for entertaining or just as a quiet place to call home,” Jarrod told us. “With furniture, I knew it would feel even more spacious, and people would respond to it.”

So Jarrod embarked on the most ambitious staging effort of his career — recruiting design specialists like Susan Goldstein of Studio D, rustic Brooklyn furniture craftsmen Organic Modernism, the contemporary art experts at Jayne Baum Gallery and others to create an immaculate space filled with both modern and traditional design elements, including over $250,000 in furniture and art. “Beautiful furniture and artwork always make the space look more luxurious, and it reenforces the luxury image of the building,” Jarrod said. “I’ve staged apartments before, but I really had to call in a lot of favors for this one.”

Now that summer’s peak is in the rear-view, it’s time to start thinking about spending more time indoors. Just because the temperature dips doesn’t mean that your entertaining has to as well. Fall brings the crowds indoors, to kitchen, dining and living room spaces. With that in mind, we thought we’d take a look at some of our favorite apartments on the market with flowing spaces to make entertaining a breeze.

With its open spaces and fabulous proportions, a boutique SoHo loft is a natural fit for entertaining in the home, and this one — located inside the 51 Crosby Street portion of the beautiful 210 Lafayette development — was conceived by the master of entertaining, famed hotelier Andre Balazs. The apartment has direct elevator access that opens right in the kitchen, dining and living areas, and for anyone seeking a respite from the crowd, the bedrooms are tucked away in the other wing.

Already our pick for one of the best penthouses on the market, the full-floor spread at the Upper East Side’s luxurious new Isis condominium at 303 East 77th Street is now officially “Living Large.” Penthouse A, with 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, four private terraces and dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows, is listed with CORE’s Jarrod Guy Randolph for $4.995 million, and Jarrod recently toured CBS New York’s Emily Smith through the spacious penthouse for a special Living Large segment. Watch Jarrod and Emily take in the 360-degree open views and modern-meets-traditional design in the video below:

Penthouses, perched atop their buildings and possessing the best views money can buy, are easily the most desired residences in Manhattan. They are the ultimate New York City real estate status symbol. Below, a look at three of our favorite penthouses on the market, in all different neighborhoods and price points.

This Chelsea masterpiece takes up the entire 12th floor of the Yves building (our Chelsea office happens to be on the ground floor). Wrapped in floor-to-ceiling windows and boasting every high-end finish one can imagine, this apartment hasn’t compromised a thing. The building is designed in such a way that the living room has three exposures, flooding the space with light and creating stunning views. And what’s a truly great penthouse without outdoor space? This one has a private terrace.

With Memorial Day fast approaching, our minds are on summer, and the outdoor decks, backyards, private rooftops and terraces that make the season so special. So what better time is there to show off our favorite properties with great outdoor spaces? Slip on some sandals, fire up the grill and take a look.

With three terraces and a roof deck, this single-family Williamsburg townhouse gives you plenty of options for sun-soaked activities. And though your friends and family may want to explore this brand new contemporary house in Brooklyn’s trendiest neighborhood, make sure they don’t forget to enjoy the outdoors. Williamsburg is known for its social scene, but any party will have a tough time competing with what could be enjoyed here, since we’ve yet to find another Williamsburg home like 257 Berry.
