MetroApril 14, 2016

These apartments each have their own style, but all have terraces perfect for entertaining.

 

New Yorkers are able to tolerate small living spaces, as the places outside their cramped quarters offer plenty of ways to escape. But there are homes in this city that offer their own escape in both indoor and outdoor living.

 

Here are three Manhattan and Brooklyn residences that will make you want to stay home — each with their own style — but all with terraces perfect for entertaining and windows that let in the light when it’s too cold to sit outside.

 

456 West 19th Street

 

The penthouse at 456 W. 19th St. features more than 2,800 square feet of living space with an additional 1,200 square feet of private outdoor terraces designed by Cary Tamarkin. Listed for $11,450,000 the terraces are not the only noticeable feature of the Chelsea building. The three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath apartment also has floor-to-ceiling, multi-paned casement windows in the living room, which offers access to the terrace, along with the dining room and kitchen.

 

129 North 3rd Street

 

Brooklyn is (often) the place to find more space for less, outside of Manhattan, and this condominium townhouse offers four floors with two outdoor terraces. Located in Williamsburg, 129 N. 3rd St., listed for $2,850,000, has a second floor with two bedrooms and a full bath, while the top floor is a master suite. The living room has a floor-to-ceiling glass wall that opens to the 400-square-foot private garden with built-in barbecue. There is also an additional terrace plus access to the private rooftop from the master suite.
