Outdoor hot tubs that provide the ultimate reason to don a bathing suit in the dead of winter

New York City may be a long way from Aspen, but add a Jacuzzi to a rooftop and it's like the next best thing to being there. All of these homes comes with that quintessential après-ski must-have: a hot tub for whiling away a cold, snowy afternoon or evening. Now if only our wonky weather would get into the spirit of the season!

This $16.3 million Federal-style townhouse at 27 Vandam Street in SoHo is nothing short of a dream house, thanks to four floors, five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a landscaped garden with a pond, and a master bedroom with its own private terrace complete with a custom Ofuro Japanese soaking tub and Jacuzzi for those romantic nights at home.

The Jacuzzi of this duplex penthouse at 15 West 20th Street (on the market for $7 million) is conveniently located off the living room of the condo’s 972-square foot south-facing terrace (there’s a north-facing terrace, too, of course) allowing users to lounge by the fire between dips in the hot tub.

The thoughtfully designed 1,500 square foot terrace of this two bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath condo at 231 Tenth Avenue (for sale at $7.495 million) includes separate areas for cooking and eating (thanks to an outdoor kitchen with a wet bar, a Viking grill, a refrigerator and a shaded dining area) and chill-axing (courtesy of an outdoor living room, a stainless steel hot tub and an outdoor shower).

There’s lots to ooh and ahh over in this six-story, 9,800-square-foot townhouse at 30 West 85th Street ($16.95 million), including seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a private elevator, radiant heat floors, a garden, numerous decks,  and this awesome planted rooftop terrace with its own outdoor Jacuzzi.

If the private basketball court, garage, screening room, and state-of-the-art elevator at this townhouse at 400 West Street (on the market for $15.950 million) didn’t have you at hello, the rooftop terrace complete with outdoor kitchen (including a wine cooler, beer tap and pizza oven) outdoor TV, wood burning fireplace and teak wood hot tub certainly will.
