Radiant heat floors that warm soles on cold days

This week’s cooler temps prove winter isn’t giving us a complete pass. If the idea of stepping out of bed and onto a freezing floor gets our day off to a poor start, consider these homes. All feature radiant heat floors that make padding around in the early morning (or late evening, or any time in between, actually) hours much less shocking to the system.

If one look at the Italian-marble master bathroom in the penthouse of 350 West Broadway (yours for $22.5 million) is enough to send (more) shivers down your spine, you can relax. The radiant heat floors will keep the space temperate as you step out of the steam shower or Kohler cast-iron tub.

Open lofts can be drafty, but you won’t feel the chill as you pad from the bedroom to the bathroom to the kitchen/dining/living room of this two-bedroom, three-bathroom space at 60 White Street (priced at $4.610 million)—thanks to radiant heat floors in every room.

One might expect this master bath in a recently gut-renovated single-family townhouse at 33 West 71st Street (for rent at $40,000/month) to have radiant heat floors, but all eight baths in the home? Now that’s something every member of the family will appreciate!

If standing naked and freezing in front of your closet while perusing your wardrobe choices for the day is torture to you, look no further than this four bedroom, seven bathroom limestone townhouse at 17 East 83rd Street (listed at 24.5 million). It features a fourth floor master suite with its own bathroom/dressing room complete with 11-foot ceilings, a gas fireplace and radiant heat antique Grey Barre stone floors.

New York City municipal regulations mandate homeowners ensure the safety of the sidewalks outside their front doors by clearing snow and ice. You can be a good citizen without lifting so much as a shovel or bag of salt by moving into this three bedroom, two and a half bathroom townhouse at 95 Barrow Street (for rent at 21,900/month) with radiant heat sidewalks that promise to keep walkways safe.
