Real Estate Showcase - Rentals

The sense of grandeur is immediate when you step into this extra-wide and extra deep 3,000 s.f. light-filled triplex at 270 West 91st Street, just off West End Avenue. An architectural stunner, furnished with style and good taste, the high-ceilinged three-bedroom, 3 1/2-bath brownstone residence has a gas-burning fireplace, a huge country kitchen and dining area—plus a stunning ivy-covered deck off the large living room, which makes it easy to channel your inner party planner. There’s a flexible lease option, and the choice of renting this lovely home with or without the furnishings. The monthly rent is $10,250.
In what can only be called a magnificent location, The Enclave at Livingston Country Club is a collection of lavishly appointed one-and two-bedroom rental homes that provide active adults aged 55 and older (only one of you has to be 55 or older) with an ultra-luxurious lifestyle. The lovely residences inside this gated community have gourmet chef's kitchens with granite countertops, stainless steel Kitchen Aid appliances and designer cabinetry. The master bathrooms have Italian marble and Kohler whirlpools. Each building offers a fitness center, a club room and a card room. Other top-drawer amenities include tennis courts, a heated swimming pool, putting green, library, business center, and a grand ballroom. There’s a beck-and-call concierge—in addition, a social director arranges on- and off-site diversions such as museum and theater outings. Monthly rent for the impressive layouts (up to 1,400 s.f., all with high ceilings) begins at $1,410.

Who doesn’t hate moving, what with orchestrating all the details, to say nothing of packing it all up? Opt for a two-year lease at The Crest and the management will actually do it for you—from packing to scheduling and moving it in. The 37-story, 476-unit at 63 Wall Street—just steps from the NYSE—was originally designed for Brown Brothers Harriman & Co., the nation’s oldest and largest private bank, which occupied the building until 2003. From 425 to 2,000 s.f., these coveted residences range from studios to one- and two-bedroom—some with home offices and private terraces—and each with extravagantly high ceilings. Sure, there’s the long list of splendid amenities you’d expect to find in a building such as this, but that’s only half the story. What sets this spectacular rental apart is the massive great room on the mezzanine level that’s home to a health club, a private and very clubby screening room (there’s an on-site DVD rental service, too), billiards and games rooms, a conference room and a business center. Top that off with a fabulous sundeck offering views of the East River. Monthly rentals from $1,800 to upwards of $3,650, but there are some lease-signing concessions such as a month’s free rent.

  "Despite low mortgage rates, renting represents a terrific option in the tri-state market because purchase prices have risen so dramatically,” says Seth G. Weinstein, principal of Hannah Real Estate Investors. “There are many extraordinary rental opportunities out there, and I believe this situation should continue for at least the next 12 months.”
