Asking: $4,995,000

Crowned by a private 1,521 square-foot roof terrace, this dramatic penthouse counts among Gramercy Park’s most exceptional residences. Perched atop a handsome 1877 Gothic Revival landmark in the Stuyvesant Square Historic District, this spectacular 2,200 square foot 3-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom home is defined by its uncommon dramatic elements. Anchored by the great room’s wood-burning fireplace, this grand, south-facing space enjoys abundant light and tranquil views of neighboring Stuyvesant Square Park. Soaring 13-foot ceilings typify the Victorian proportions of the main living area, and sunshine cascades from a towering 20-foot atrium onto the chef’s kitchen below, which boasts custom Poggenpohl cabinetry and Viking appliances. Each of the three spacious bedrooms offers an exquisitely appointed en-suite bath and large, custom-fitted closets. The private wing is separated by an elegant formal gallery, which offers increased privacy and convenient access to the home’s laundry area. Connected to the interior by a floating staircase is the lushly landscaped private terrace. Specimen plantings and thoughtfully imagined entertaining areas punctuate this urban oasis, designed as a three-season sanctuary. The terrace is equipped with an integrated audio system, irrigation, lighting, a gas barbecue, and an outdoor shower. Historic architectural views abound, dominated by the verdant hues of the park below.

Landmark 17 is a boutique condominium of just thirteen luxury residences. Fully renovated in 2006, this pet-friendly building is attended by a part-time doorman.

This superb 1,364-square-foot, one-bedroom Greenpoint loft, with 40 feet of frontage facing West Street, has soaring 16-foot ceilings, eight-foot-tall windows, a large skylight and unobstructed views of the Manhattan skyline.

What’s New: Tastefully Tribeca

Where: 37 Harrison Street
Size: 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms
Asking: $3,750,000
Listed by: Tom Postilio and Mickey Conlon

Available for the first time in over 40 years, this architecturally rich and rare house at 37 Harrison Street (originally 327 Washington Street) retains a remarkable abundance of its original detail. Currently configured with a 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom layout, this 21-foot wide structure stretches over three sun-drenched floors, plus an English basement with exposed stone walls, front and rear entrances, and 13′ 6″ ceilings. Constructed in brick in a Flemish bond pattern, this corner house enjoys a craftsman-like attention to detail and scale and as one of the city’s finest extant examples of the Federal Style. It features six wood-burning fireplaces, soaring ceilings with exposed beams and original arched dormers. Its private garden adjoins an enclave of similarly designed houses connected by their historical pedigree and unlikely survival. Linked by a cobblestone street that once faced the river, the entire row was converted for warehouse use in the 19th century as the commercial activities of the Washington Market expanded northward, leaving no more than a handful of the original townhouses.

Built in 1828 and landmarked in 1969, the Wilson Hunt House is one of a group of nine Federal houses whose scale and profile exist nowhere else in New York City. Located on a site that was once the well-known farm of Annetje Jans, to whom it was granted in 1636 by Dutch Director General, Van Twiller, the area surrounding the house has evolved a bit over the last several centuries. Its farms and breweries long gone, the quaint neighborhood now offers access to some of the city’s finest shops, restaurants, and 21st century conveniences.

The New York Observer
Tom Postilio and Mickey Conlon provide insight on the impact emotions play among buyers and sellers when dealing with real estate. “Feelings can get in the way for buyers and even cloud their decisions,” says Mickey. “As a realtor, you sometimes need to be the therapist or sounding board for what is happening elsewhere in a client’s life.”

Helping Bailey House Provide Home, Hope and Community

Tom Postilio and Mickey Conlon Hosting the Bailey House Gala Auc

Mickey and I have always been aware of the great work that Bailey House does in New York City to help those affected by HIV/AIDS, and we certainly understand the importance of helping people to find a suitable and comfortable home – especially when that home is the only refuge from a difficult day of dealing with a debilitating illness. But, when we were approached to host the annual gala event this year at Chelsea Piers, we were especially honored. A new annual award was created this year to honor Jason Sheftell, the beloved New York Daily News real estate reporter who passed away suddenly at the age of 46 last summer. Jason was a beloved and supportive friend and someone we respected and admired for his passion for our industry. When we were invited to host the event, we didn’t pause for a moment before accepting. It was immeasurably rewarding for us to take part in this magical evening. We were delighted to finally meet Jason’s darling mother, Karen Sheftell. We now know exactly where Jason got his passion for life, real estate and all things New York City. Getting to know Karen, who is a real estate broker in Stamford, CT., was the icing on the cake of a very special and rewarding evening for us. We were proud to be hosts of this year’s event and look forward to being a part of the Bailey House family for years to come!

Photo of the Week: He Writes The Songs

"Harmony" CTG/Ahmanson Theatre Opening Night

Two of CORE’s top-producing brokers Tom Postilio and Mickey Conlon share a joyous backstage moment with their friend Barry Manilow after the opening night performance of his triumphant musical, HARMONY, at the Ahmanson in Los Angeles last week. Manilow, who famously sang “I Write the Songs,” composed the score for the show, with book and lyrics by his longtime collaborator, Bruce Sussman. HARMONY chronicles the lives of the first sensational boy band: six talented young men who came together in 1920s Germany and took the world by storm with their signature blend of sophisticated close harmonies and uproarious stage antics. The Comedian Harmonists sold millions of records, starred in a dozen films and packed the houses of the most prestigious concert halls around the globe until the world they knew forever changed. Tom and Mickey have raved about this moving story, so if you’re in L.A., don’t miss the opportunity to see this show!
