Do you like to home ogle? Do you like driving by houses and thinking to yourself, “I’ve been in there before; the indoor pool was quite appealing.” Do you actually need to find a new home? Each week, we scout out three open houses in three different neighborhoods that look well worth the trip.
The Neighborhood: Highland Park
The Price: $925,000
The Square Footage: 2,087
Why It Looks Cool: If we were to look at photos of this cottage without any context for where it exists in the world, we’d probably place it somewhere in the Hamptons, or Montauk, or some other pocket of Long Island. Of course, this jewel box home is much closer to our neck of the woods, but maybe stepping under its recently raised ceilings this Sunday will make us all feel—even if only a little—like we’re on vacation.
The Neighborhood: Jan Mar
The Price: $959,900
The Square Footage: 3,967
Why It Looks Cool: This Jan Mar Estates home is incredibly bright and incredibly open, but it never loses its cozy, welcoming feel. It also comes with a truly glorious kitchen where we’d happily hang out for the duration of any house party.
The Neighborhood: Oak Lawn
The Price: $2,375,000
The Square Footage: 5,255
Why It Looks Cool: Perfectly nestled between bustling West Village and serene Turtle Creek, the location is easily the biggest draw for this townhouse, but we’d be remiss in not mentioning the box beam ceilings or the gorgeous hardwoods.
