Now that spring seems to be settling in quite well, we’ve got the urge to take our lunch meetings outside. With that in mind, our focus today is on homes that are best for enjoying a taste of the outdoors.
This Upper East Side corner apartment has a perfectly cozy balcony perched up on the 21st floor, with a spectacular vista of the New York skyline. A morning coffee break would definitely take on new meaning from a space such as this. In addition, The Bayard House is a renowned full-service co-op building located in the heart of the neighborhood.
We couldn’t talk about ideal apartments that encourage taking a nosh outdoors without including this unit at the modern Yves tower in Chelsea. A 26-foot-deep, L-shaped terrace provides an astounding amount of private outdoor space in this part of the city. Grilling season is just around the corner, so act quickly.
One charming aspect of most townhouses is their backyards, providing a suburban feel in this most urban of cities. At 161 State Street in bucolic Brooklyn Heights, a vast garden and rear deck beckon, and the 20-foot-wide Greek Revival house also has a roof deck and garden area in front of the house. The large lot just needs a little TLC to create a true outdoor oasis.
