This is The Listings, a monthly rundown (with pictures!) of some of the most over-the-top properties currently on sale in or around this fair(ish) city.

This month, we’ve rounded up five homes with room to accommodate a whole fam-damn-ily. So kiss that high-rise shoebox goodbye and say hello to your new digs, which, we’re sorry, may be in the outer boroughs. But it’s ok. You’re a family man now.

429 4th Street – $2,995,000
Park Slope, Brooklyn
The basics: 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, 3,200 sq. ft.
The benefits: Park Slope is Williamsburg for starter families. It’s not-so-endearingly referred to as the Stroller District. And this gem is three stories of brick townhouse awesomeness with10-foot ceilings, two fireplaces, a basement fit for recreation and a garden out back for going fully domestic this summer.

232 West 10th Street – $5,950,000
West Village
The basics: 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, 2,684 Sq. Ft.
The benefits: The charming street is lined with families and brick facades, and the home has space for recreation inside, as well as three separate outdoor spaces and a whopping six wood-burning fireplaces. There’s nearly one in every room. 

124 Pioneer Street – $1,500,000 (Pictured at top)
Red Hook, Brooklyn
The basics: 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, 1,596 Sq. Ft.
The benefits: Calling all families with a party of three: this townhouse is situated on a quiet street but designed to satisfy high-minded, metropolitan tastes. Combining artistic touches with a rustic aesthetic, the home offers a floating, modern staircase, but also a wood-burning fireplace. Garage space is definitely a plus, as is the darling wood terrace above. To boot, you’ll be commuting via water taxi, which is very cool.

212 Beach 125th Street – $828,000
Rockaway, Queens
The basics: 5 bedrooms, 2 baths, 1,900 Sq. Ft.
The benefits: Forget the shore. The Rockaways is where you’ll find still slept-on beachfront properties. This number is just one block from the sand and salt water. No boat taxi here, but there’s garage space for two cars with a splendid front porch for people watching and play.

5 West 87th Street – $9,750,000
Upper West Side
The basics: 5 bedrooms, 4 baths, 6,534 Sq. Ft.
The benefits: So you don’t want to leave the city. We get it. Here’s the best of both worlds. Just off Central Park, this veritable mansion boasts a 21-foot-long garden behind five stories of luxury. The place is fitted with speakers in every room, an eat-in kitchen as well as a dining island and balconies for gazing over your new tree-lined street.
