ISLAND IN THE SUN

On the island’s Dutch side of Saint Maarten, Cupecoy Yacht Club at Orient-Express Hotels’ La Samanna resort is set on the more secluded western end of Simpson Bay Lagoon. Nearly 50 percent sold out, the one- to four-bedroom condos range from 750 to 3,000 square feet and feature private outdoor space—and some boast their own private swimming pools. Around the Village Square, you’ll find tennis, fitness and spa centers, along with shops selling just-out-of-the-oven croissants and rare vintages, and cafés for al fresco repasts. It’s also where to catch the complimentary water-taxi for Marigot (think Paris with good weather) to meander through the town’s outdoor market where rows of fresh food glisten like colorful gems under faded French-style awnings. The marina has a water-sport facility and 40 slips (some big enough for mega yachts), which can be leased. From $500,000. OCCUPANCY EARLY 2009.

FREE PARK-ING

You’ll find a whole new definition of waterfront living at One Brooklyn Bridge on Furman Avenue, in Brooklyn Heights.

All boast ceilings soaring 13 feet up, nine-foot-high windows, washer/dryers, and private storage on every floor. Open kitchens feature Italian custom-designed wood cabinetry from Dada, quartz-engineered countertops, and appliances courtesy of Sub-Zero and Bosch. Master baths come with freestanding soaking tubs and separate glass showers. Building amenities include a fitness center, playrooms, art room, game room, lounge, and golf simulator—along with attended or owner self-parking. From $550,000. OCCUPANCY LATE 2007.

SHORE THING

The first 28-story tower at the Shore Condominium Residences at Newport in Jersey City sold out in no time, so it’s no surprise that only a handful of residences remain unsold in the second tower, including two- and three-bedroom duplexes and some four-bedroom triplex sky homes. Nearly every home has private outdoor space to maximize the sweeping views—and oak slat floors and custom-birch closets are ubiquitous. Italian porcelain-tiled kitchens sport quarter-cut oak cabinetry with granite worktops, built-in wine shelves, and KitchenAid Architect Series appliances. Master baths feature porcelain tile walls and floors, granite vanity tops, and extra-long soaking tubs. There’s a penthouse-level amenity floor that is home to a large resident’s lounge, a wellness center, gym, boardroom, business center, screening room, party room with a caterer’s prep kitchen, and a sizeable sun deck. From $775,000. OCCUPANCY NOVEMBER 2007.

“Today’s luxury buyers are looking for something special, a place to retreat from their busy lives—and you simply can’t top the peace, privacy, and dazzling look of water views,” said Anthony Cutugno, senior vice president, Houlihan Lawrence Luxury Division. “Waterfront properties in lower Westchester County have always created a lot of excitement because they offer a rarified lifestyle, just 30 minutes from Manhattan.”
