Despite the cold weather and the fact that there are about two official months left of winter--or maybe because of it--NYC apartment-hunters are apparently already dreaming of summer and looking to buy apartments with private outdoor space. If you’ve got that warm-weather itch, you might be interested in this Open House Scorecard -- the 10 open houses those browsing StreetEasy this weekend saved to their open-house calendars more often than any others.

A $1.095m two-bedroom, two-bathroom co-op on East 76th Street and First Avenue has an outdoor space double whammy -- there’s a private terrace, as well as a shared roof deck with a pool. The master bedroom offers terrace views, an en-suite bath and custom closets. The full service building has a parking garage, allows co-purchases and utilities are included in the monthly maintenance of $1,642. Dogs weighing up to 30 pounds are allowed.

Across the bridge in Park Slope, a $765k two-and-a-half-bedroom, one-bath co-op also boasts a private terrace off the master bedroom, which is situated in the back of the building. The parlor level apartment (located at Third Street between Sixth and Seventh Avenues) has a second bedroom at the front of the building, and an additional bonus windowed sleeping loft that can be used as a nursery, guest area or office. The unit also has large windows and 12’ ceilings and additional storage in the basement.

Over in Willamsburg on Havemeyer and Hope Streets, you’ll find a two-bedroom, one-bathroom condo on the market for $599k featuring two Juliet balconies. The third-floor walk-up has a video intercom system, triple exposures, 10’ ceilings and central heating and a/c. There’s also an in-unit washer-dryer, high-speed Internet and low monthly frees (common charges $285, monthly taxes $19 with a 421A tax abatement that expires in 2028). Subletting is permitted. Note: This apartment is a studio that the current owners converted into a two-bedroom.
