A patch of grass—upon which to BBQ or simply lounge—high up in the sky

For $6.4 million, you can score this three bedroom, two and a half bathroom loft at 153 Chambers Street with three landscaped terraces, including this fully irrigated one off the kitchen/dining room that’s made for entertaining with multiple seating areas, mature trees, perennial flowers and custom lighting. 


With Memorial Day approaching, it’s natural for thoughts to drift to backyard barbecues, and that calls for a stretch of lawn. These homes all have that rare commodity: a private patch of green grass on which to stretch out, kick a ball, or grill up some burgers.

This penthouse condo at 20 Henry Street (on the market for $2.995 million) has three bedrooms, three bathrooms and this impressive rooftop terrace complete with skyline views, a natural gas grill, and a square of grassy lawn.

This Tribeca penthouse condo at 471 Washington Street (yours for $24.5 million) has not one, not two, but seven (!) terraces to satisfy a range of outdoor pursuits (from swimming to hot tubbing to grilling and more). This lawn area is actually faux, which makes it ideal for those with brown thumbs—and for putting practice.

The 735-square-foot terrace of this three-bedroom, two-and-a half-bath home at 425 East 13th Street (priced at $2.35 million) offers plenty of room for dining and lounging, plus a small lawn that makes an excellent personal playground.

The star of this three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath condo at 23 East 22nd Street is a 2,400-plus-square-foot wraparound—and grassy—terrace just off the kitchen that’s large enough for a game of croquet (or so the images would have one believe).
