On the Market: 6 NYC Apartments with Outdoor Space

The great outdoors are calling, even if it is a rooftop garden set above the concrete jungle of New York City. As the temperature begins to rise, so too does demand for private, outdoor space where New Yorkers can breathe fresh air, take in some vitamin D and even exercise their green thumbs.
In honor of the season, we rounded up some of the best homes on the market offering open sky, privacy and the luxury of outdoor space. Whether it’s a stunning city view from a balcony for your morning coffee or a lush backyard for your evening yoga, these homes offer the perfect places for your spring awakening.

This dream home offers 6,300 square feet of spectacular indoor and outdoor living space. With five bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms, the interior is spacious and beautifully appointed. The grand master suite affords unobstructed north and western sunset views, is accentuated by a dramatic curved Juliet balcony and is complete with a rare windowed, five-fixture master bathroom.

But perhaps the best part about this property is the landscaped roof deck. An entertainer’s delight, no summer home is required. With its custom kitchen and bar outfitted with Kalamazoo appliances, you will only need to choose your favorite angle and your favorite view, as your private oasis offers multiple lounging and dining options.
