The Open House Scorecard: The calendar says it's springtime. So do the most popular open houses.

Buyers, perhaps salivating for summer, seem to have their eyes trained on windows and outdoor space this past weekend, as half the properties on this week's StreetEasy Open House Scorecard—the 10 open houses saved on StreetEasy more often than any others this weekend—boast some sort of open-air area, from balconies and rooftops to courtyards and sundecks.  

Let's start with the bright, modern Flatiron-district $1.24 million one-bedroom condo pictured here. The lofty corner unit has 11 foot ceilings gets a double dose of sunlight from the south and east. A set of French doors in the living/dining area opens to double Juliet balconies. Owners also have access to a two-tiered Mediterranean style sundeck. The kitchen is no mere kitchen but a "freestanding kitchen pod" outfitted with the usual high-end appliances; it can apparently be closed off when not in use.  We can't quite see it in the photos but according to the listing, the walk-in shower has "external doors that can be opened to allow natural light while bathing...."

Over in Brooklyn, a two-bedroom Park Slope co-op on the market for $739k comes with exclusive roof access with "unobstructed city views." The walk-up apartment also has a wood-burning fireplace, as well as a renovated gourmet kitchen, a master bedroom walk-in closet and laundry in the basement.

There's also a $1.1 million two-bedroom Cobble Hill condo that was formerly part of a church complex.  The living room and first-floor bedroom have tall, arched windows, while the lofted master bedroom has a skylight. There's also access to a courtyard with not one, but two waterfalls.
