11 Stunning Apartments with Outdoor Space That Are on the Market Right Now
New Yorkers know better than to expect certain luxuries when it comes to searching for the perfect apartment. In-unit laundry, soundproof walls and strong water pressure are all crazy demands—but the most elusive amenity of all has to be outdoor space. Well, if you’ve always dreamed of a rooftop with views, a terrace for your morning coffee or a backyard for your dog, then consider us your real-estate fairy godmother, because we’ve found some magical rentals that you can move into right now…or at least ogle the photos.
1-Bedroom on the Upper West Side ($3,195)
A pet-friendly building with a private courtyard? Tell Mochi you just found your forever home.
1-Bedroom in Gramercy Park ($4,500)
When your patio is bigger than your actual apartment, it either means your indoor space is teeny or your outdoor space is massive. We’re happy to report that in the case of this Gramercy Park one-bedroom, it’s the latter. (In fact, it has more than 1,000 square feet of future barbecue space).
3-Bedroom in Chelsea ($17,000)
This dream home features 1,400 square feet of private outdoor terraces facing north and south. It also has a private elevator, built-in surround sound home theater speakers and Nest-controlled heat and central air—not that it matters since we wouldn't spend any time inside.
3-Bedroom in Greenwich Village ($29,000)
BRB, pinning this to our vision board immediately. This impeccably maintained Italianate single-family townhouse in the heart of Greenwich Village boasts terraces and a private backyard. (Bonus: Scroll through the interior shots for some major wallpaper inspo.)
2-Bedroom in Stuyvesant Heights ($2,063 )
Time to update the age-old real-estate mantra, because after seeing this Stuyvesant Heights two-bedroom, we’re pretty sure nothing else matters except amenities, amenities, amenities! This new development has a gym, a game room, a study lounge, parking and a beautifully furnished roof deck.
1-Bedroom in Ditmas Park ($2,100)
Imagine having a tranquil retreat in the heart of Brooklyn. Sign the lease for this one-bedroom home and that shared bucolic garden will be your new favorite spot to read and sip tea. Hard to believe you’re mere blocks away from the subway, huh?
1-Bedroom in Brooklyn Heights ($3,200)
Perched on the top floor of a Brooklyn Heights castle is this one-bedroom apartment with the most charming Juliette balcony we’ve ever seen. Pretty sure this is the closest we’ll ever get to feeling like Meghan Markle.
2-Bedroom in Williamsburg ($3,575)
Now we’re just getting greedy. This sunny two-bedroom Williamsburg penthouse not only has a sprawling private terrace but a communal rooftop as well.
3-Bedroom in Columbia St. Waterfront District ($11,250)
Can’t decide between Manhattan and Brooklyn? Easy—just opt for a penthouse with a private rooftop that gives you 360-degree views of both. But really, that custom-built Viking outdoor kitchen should make the decision a no-brainer.
2-Bedroom in Jackson Heights ($2,200)
We love a front-facing terrace for the people watching. At this Jackson Heights home, you’re perched right above the street, so you can sit in a rocking chair and take in the neighborhood all day long.
