242 Broome – $7,350,000
The Basics: 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, 2,487 square feet, penthouse
The Business: Say hello to your new 1,282-square-foot terrace. That’s correct, your terrace is half the size of your apartment. You’ll be lounging with views of the Downtown and Midtown skylines, as well as the East River. And the space comes furnished with outdoor lounge furniture, a dining setup and a gas grill to boot.

70 Charlton – $4,650,000
The Basics: 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, 2,012 square feet
The Business: What was once a wasteland of mass transit is now NYC’s newest bustling hood. You’re especially in luck should you be gainfully employed by ABC or Google HQ, as they’re a stone’s throw away. Be the envy of your colleagues as you wave from your lovely 510-square-foot terrace.
8 Pine Way (3 images)
8 Pine Way, Amagansett Dunes – $3,995,000
The Basics: 3 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, 2,500 square feet
The Business: Forget a terrace — live here and you’ll have a dang pool. Inside, you’ll still feel like you’re kissing nature, as skylights abound. Step outside and you’re in your own private Shangri-La, with a quarter acre of landscaped grounds, a bluestone patio and a three-room pool house circumscribing your heated skinny-dipping zone.

150 East 85th Street – $4,500,000
The Basics: 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, 2,235 square feet
The Business: Views to the south. Views to the east. Views to the west. You’re up to your ears in stinkin’ views. After a long day, retire to your master suite, complete with a steam and audio-laden shower before stepping out onto your private terrace … which comes with an outdoor shower if exhibition is more your speed.
38 Lexington (3 images)
38 Lexington Avenue, Brooklyn – $1,899,000
The Basics: 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, 1,612 square feet
The Business: Everyone has a rooftop. You — you’ll have your own private rooftop. In fact, you’ll have two of ‘em. A duo of coveted outdoor real estate for entertaining all to yourself. And should it get too chilly, retire inside to sit back and watch the Carrera marble fireplace blaze.
12 Osborn (3 images)
12 Osborn Farm Lane, Wainscott – $8,195,000
The Basics: 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, 3,000 square feet
The Business: So there’s the outdoors, and then there’s the great outdoors. For the latter, you’ll have to jump ship from the city. But don’t fret: you won’t miss the grind while surrounded by an agricultural reserve with ocean, pond and farm views.
168 Lefferts (3 images)
168 Lefferts Place, Brooklyn – $3,500,000
The Basics: 6 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, 5,000 square feet
The Business: If this isn’t the definition of real-estate envy, we’re not sure what is. A restored townhouse, this duplex boasts original hardwood floors, crown moldings, high ceilings and a marble fireplace. It’s beyond. And beyond the back doors, you’ll be the lucky duck with a flourishing flower garden just begging for al fresco suppers.
