The Most Popular Listings of August

The most popular listings on The New York Times’s Find a Home site in August included Manhattan properties that ranged from the very affordable to the very expensive, as well as two homes in Connecticut.

The asking price for this 795-square-foot, one-bedroom, one-bath co-op surely raised eyebrows and boosted the listing’s popularity. Inwood Hill Park’s 200 acres of greenery are nearby and the Art Deco building offers laundry and bike storage.

This one-bedroom, one-bath penthouse with a large rooftop terrace is about a block from Central Park. There’s a muted yet playful color pallet on the walls and ceilings. The $2,669 monthly maintenance may give some buyers pause.

This 10-bedroom, 15-bath house, called the Herbert N. Straus Mansion, has 28,000 square feet. Described as the largest private home in the city, the circa-1930s building has also served as a hospital and a school. The monthly tax bill alone is $31,016.

Moving up from third place in July was this five-bedroom, three-bath, 2,600-square-foot house. It offers a lot for the price, including a heated pool, a two-bedroom lower-level suite for visitors and access to two lakeside beaches.
