A six-bedroom townhouse at 15 Willow Street in Brooklyn Heights (priced at $11.5 million) comes with its own curb cut and outdoor car park—behind a discrete garage door to boot!

They key to a quick getaway on a summer Friday: your own driveway and/or garage where you can park steps from your front door and load up the car with little to no friction whatsoever. Here, six homes that have what it takes…

At 7 Hubert Street—a Tribeca townhouse with four bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms (yours for $19.750 million)—a pristine and oversized garage space leaves plenty of space for storing a season’s worth of summer toys, from tennis racquets to golf clubs and stand-up surf boards to sea kayaks.

For $3.95 million, you can pick up this newly built, multi-family townhouse (with an owner’s triplex and a smaller studio/guest suite) at 391 South 3rd Street in Williamsburg with a gated front courtyard—just beyond the front door—that doubles as a private parking space.

Meanwhile, at 257 Berry Street, also in Williamsburg, a modern single-family home (on the market for $4.5 million) includes an unusual garage/entry that allows the owner to drive directly into the lower level gallery area of the 3,500-square-foot live/work space.

At 23 Cornelia Street, a deceptively small-looking former carriage house built in 1912 has been transformed into a spacious and modern three-story home (on the market for $24.5 million) with four bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, an indoor pool, and this 10’6” x 20’2” garage, sandwiched between two front doors, for added convenience with comings and goings.

Finally, for about the price of a 1,000 square foot, two-bedroom in Manhattan, you can have this four- bedroom, three-bathroom fully detached, single-family colonial at 110-53 69th Road in Forest Hills, Queens (for rent at $5,700 per month) with a storage-friendly single car garage and two additional parking spots to spare.
