FROM MALIBU TO MONTAUK

“Whether it’s Malibu or Montauk, I’ve always loved the peace of being near the ocean,” says actress Tuesday Weld, best known for her iconic movie roles in the late ’50s through ’60s. Now, with her children grown, she’s decided to put her 5BR/5bth Montauk home on the market.

Weld bought the home 18 years ago when Montauk was mainly a fishing village. It’s walking distance from the town, which has retained its non-glitzy feel. Aside from spectacular ocean views, it features a large open kitchen/dining area, two fireplaces, a slate porch for glorious sunsets, and a private stairway to the beach. There is also a 20x40ft heated pool that includes its own 1BR/1bth house with fireplace.

While now enjoying life as a world traveler, Weld says she’ll always find a way to spend time in Montauk... “Whenever I came to this house for the weekend, I wound up staying two months.” $12 million. An exclusive offering.

A DIFFERENT ANGLE ON NYC

Few would dispute the notion that the views from New Jersey’s waterfront are among the most spectacular around. At night Manhattan glitters like a jewel box, and the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island are breathtaking. Homeowners at Liberty Terrace, the new luxury condominium in Jersey City’s historic Paulus Hook, get that and a lot more. The nine-story, glass-encased building offers ultra-enhanced views through floor-to-ceiling windows.

Understandably, just weeks from opening, 60 percent of Liberty Terrace’s 119 condos have been sold. These 1, 2 and 3BRs, starting in the low $600,000s, feature top-of-the-line detailing. Kitchens have granite countertops, cherry cabinets and KitchenAid Professional appliances. Each home has a Bosch washer/dryer. Baths have marble or limestone floors and brushed-nickel fixtures. Liberty Terrace’s proximity to Manhattan is a huge draw - the nearby PATH train or ferry will whisk you into the city within 15 minutes. This is an exclusive offering.

  A JEWEL IN THE GARDEN STATE

Diamond Beach, a luxury midrise condominium on the Long Branch waterfront, is as good as its name. To put a point on it, etched into its grand glass elevator facing the ocean is a magnificent diamond. The rest of the amenities are equally impressive. The Kleiner Group, the project’s developer, has combined flowing South Beach-inspired floor plans with chic Manhattan styling.

Choose from 86 lovely 2BR/2.5bth homes with private balconies or 10 spacious 3BR/3.5bth duplex penthouses with huge terraces. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer stunning ocean views. Superb gourmet kitchens will attract even the most reluctant cook. Oversized laundry rooms cater to busy lives. Master bedrooms feature spacious walk-in closets. Master baths have his-and-her sinks, Kohler BubbleMassage tubs, and tiled stall showers with body sprays.

Amenities include concierge, underground secured parking, state-of-the-art fitness center and ocean-view pool. Best of all is the sunset-facing rooftop garden/terrace. Opening March 2007. Low $600,000s to over $1.8 million.

“Today, when prices in the rest of the market are stabilizing, waterfront properties are holding their value or even increasing,” says Marilyn Larsen, president of Lane Realty in Jericho, NY. “There are only so many great waterfront homes, and they’re commanding prices 10 to 25 percent higher than equivalent inland properties.”
