Three of a Kind: For a Lazy Long Weekend

Featured Properties // Aug 29, 2012

Labor Day weekend is just around the corner and summer is winding down, but that doesn’t mean we’re tired of great private outdoor spaces quite yet. Here are three great properties on the market that can give summer the sendoff it deserves.


Where: 114 West 13th Street
Size: 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms
Asking: $11,995,000

On the inside this historic Greenwich Village brownstone is totally restored and renovated for contemporary living, but the outdoor spaces stand out as well. There are two private terraces, but we really want to focus on the backyard, which is a charming space in one of Manhattan’s best neighborhoods that can handle the busiest holiday celebration. And if you need a moment alone, you can sneak off to that private terrace off the master bedroom.


Where:153 East 57th Street, #19EF
Size: 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms
Asking: $1,495,000

Not everyone is looking for a townhouse, but that doesn’t mean that impressive outdoor space is out of reach. This two-bedroom apartment at 153 East 57th Street in Midtown has a 500-square-foot terrace that is over 45′ long, running along nearly the entire apartment. For just under $1.5 million, this kind of outdoor space is almost unheard of. And if you need even more fresh air, Central Park is not that far.


Where: 257 Berry Street
Size: 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms
Asking: $4,250,000
Listed by: Doug Bowen and Vickey Barron

We never leave out our favorite outer-borough from a list like this, and this Williamsburg new-construction townhouse (a rarity) racks up nearly 1,000 square feet of outdoor space. That’s bigger than most apartments on the other side of the East River, and we’re just talking about terraces. The benefits of Brooklyn living — and in the trendiest neighborhood in the city.
