It’s all about the location–and the stunning views–as we lay out the welcome mat at three extraordinary homes.
GLAMOROUS TRIBECA PENTHOUSE
The views of the Manhattan skyline from this chic downtown loft, previously owned by comedian Jon Stewart, are no laughing matter–nor are the high-end interior touches. With six bedrooms, a media room, library and an expansive rooftop deck, there’s plenty of square footage to unwind.
Why we love it: It’s the corner unit in a boutique building, which allows for maximum sun exposure.

SPRAWLING CITY RETREAT
Inside this Gold Coast home, a warm contemporary interior plays host to six bedrooms, a gym, a wine cellar, a library and a meditation room. Enjoy the Chicago summer from the rooftop garden with its greenhouse or the courtyard, which features a pool and outdoor kitchen.
Why we love it: This home stands as a gleaming example of adaptive reuse given its former life as an electrical substation.

ART DECO AERIE
Occupying an entire floor, this three-bedroom condo in the Tenderloin features exquisite architectural details, including intricate crown moldings, marble inlaid floors, high ceilings, hand-carved doors and hand-painted murals.
Why we love it: The penthouse’s Palladian-style solarium is an extraordinary room with its dramatic barrel-vaulted glass ceiling and two outdoor terraces with views from Sausalito to the South Bay.
