Controlled voyeurism took over New York City this past weekend as Dwell
and New York Magazine
hosted the very first City Modern Home Tours
and opened up some of the Big Apple's most opulent homes up to curious cats like us. Oohs and ahhs abounded as visitors padded around hard-wooded corners in their blue sanitary booties (hey, you wouldn't want hundreds of people scuffing up your floors either, would you?) and admired fantasy features like seemingly endless walls of built-in storage, an indoor koi pond, a green-walled living room, giant windows and more terraces than we could count. We were also pleasantly surprised to learn that most of these dream homes also boast sustainable features like low-e windows, planted facades, solar shading, double windows, vintage and reclaimed materials and more. Step into our gallery
to take your own little tour through these truly spectacular and inspiring Manhattan lofts, triplexes and townhouses.
