This week's Best New Listings includes a four-story Tudor house, a townhouse with a separate rentable unit and a four-bedroom bungalow in the Palisades. 


A Tudor Home With A Standout Atrium

This Tudor home has a history as a site for entertaining as the previous owners used to open up the main room and host parties with over 200 people in attendance. A circular glass atrium lies past the formal dining room, with heated stone flooring, tilted glass skylights and a door to a rear garden. On the lower level, there's a full bathroom and a large, carpeted living space that could function as a movie room. Upstairs, one of the bedrooms has stairs leading up to a fully finished a-frame attic space with two windows for natural light. The primary suite has an en-suite bathroom with teal tile work. An additional bedroom and bathroom can also be found upstairs.

A Renovated Palisades Bungalow

With an unusually large square footage, this Palisades home is quite spacious for a bungalow. On the main floor by the kitchen, the back living room stands out with its entertainment center, featuring built-in wooden cabinetry and a wood-burning fireplace. Slightly elevated by two steps, the kitchen and breakfast area have ample white cabinetry, dark marble countertops, a breakfast bar, a white subway tile backsplash, a gas stovetop, overhead lighting and a door leading to the backyard. A den on this floor functions as the ideal office space. The primary suite on the top floor offers a full soaking tub, a separate shower, a fireplace and several stain-glass windows. The three other bedrooms are also located on the top floor. The basement also has a few stained-glass accents and offers a laundry area, storage and another flex space that could be used as a studio or extra living room.

The two bedrooms are both located upstairs, and the primary suite has its own bathroom with a white tile shower. A brick patio in the back of the home can be accessed through the kitchen and offers a space for a fire pit and sitting area. Other recent updates to the home include a new roof, new windows, a new HVAC and a new water heater.
