Large limestone tiles, planters and pots with trees and bushes around the perimeter, give this Upper East Side backyard a carefully balanced, laid back Mediterranean feel. The eight-bedroom, nine-bathroom townhouse to which it belongs is anything but laid back with an expansive, traditional interior and a price tag of $16.95 million.
A modern, exquisite backyard perfectly matches the high end, contemporary townhouse which was newly designed and constructed by renowned architect Carey Tamarkin and is listed for $12.75 million. The backyard includes a wall of foliage at the far end which helps diffuse traffic noise and adds privacy.
This beautiful two-level backyard doesn’t even begin to do the associated $28 million West Village mansion justice. However, as urban gardens go, the elegant bluestone patio and raised sandy upper level, all surrounded by foliage and shade from neighboring trees, makes a pleasant respite from the busy streets outside. The dark lateral fencing adds a contemporary touch.
A simple stone patio is given ample shade from the deck above, with connecting stairs and the trelis/pergola at the far end of the garden. Border foliage and lateral wooden fencing softens the aesthetic. If the back garden doesn’t convince you, take a look inside at the $9.95 million listed West Village townhouse to see what upscale urban living is all about.
The stunning renderings for this Upper West Side townhouse (work has not yet been completed) are so realistic it’s hard not to imagine potential buyers lining up offers for this $7.965 million listed home. The back garden carries the chic interior outside with light grey concrete tiled floor, modern planters, pavers and a pergola. The concrete and glass deck, fencing and subtle use of plants all add to the cool sophistication.
Different textures add depth to the compact back gardens of The Polhemus Townhouses, eight new construction residences on highly coveted Amity Street in Brooklyn Heights. Contemporary, interlaced concrete tile and a small scratch of grass are bordered by ivy strewn fencing that gives an intimate feel to the urba oasis. Expect these listings — which begin at $6.4 million — to return to market after the Covid-19 quarantine ends.
This simple but inviting back garden has a laid back, natural feel created by the bluestone patio, small garden, foliage and towering trees. Plus, how great is a private patch of grass in a concrete jungle?
The associated townhouse, listed for $12,659 million is a rare 25 foot wide building with about 7,700 square feet and tons of natural light on a quiet tree lined block.
It’s hard to know where to look first with this renovated 26-foot wide town house, listed at $12.75 million in the heart of Brooklyn Heights. A contemporary kitchen and newer moldings work well with original fire places and flooring. The excavated basement and wine cellar add a sophisticated touch few can match. The brick paved patio outside and descending metallic stairs from a balcony are probably not new but work well with the home’s timeless mix of classic and contemporary.
