Weekend Highlights

If you're hanging around for the long weekend – and what a "February" weekend it's shaping up to be, with this weather – there are some newer offerings worth a visit.

For a complete list via the Beach Reporter, click here or, any time, use the link under "Prop. Search Tools" in the right-hand column. As always, click any address for pics & details via Redfin.

New in the Hill Section is 815 2nd (5br/6ba, 4550 sq. ft.) – a few doors up off Ardmore. There are ocean views on 2 levels, a cool lower level with a tiered home theater (finally, one that lets you can see over the heads of your friends and family seated in front of you!) and lots of crisp finishes and details. A unique family layout, not your typical grand estate. Some small bedrooms, unfortunately. Starts at $4.795m. (Sat/Sun, 1-4pm)

A new listing in the Sand Section is 428 27th (pictured), which we mentioned the other day (Mrs. MBC's pick), an east coast brownstone-inspired home with a feature brownstones in the "real" Manhattan would kill for: side windows. Offers 5br/5ba, 4125 sq. ft. Starts at $2.899m. (Sat only, 1-4pm) Across the street, 429 27th might also be open to take advantage of the traffic.

Also intruguing in the Sand: 125 31st, a contemporary style home built in 1999, at the corner with Manhattan Ave. Offers 4br/4ba, 2900 sq. ft., and starts at $3.549m. The real price is $10k less, because the sellers will credit you that much to repaint the interior. What's the story there? (Sat/Sun, 1-4pm)

In the Trees, two new homes are open: 1825 Oak, a custom Spanish ($2.399m), and 3500 Blanche, a very busy Spanish ($2.549m). Also, if you've never dropped in on 570 27th, nearing 1 year on market and down $700k from its start (now $3.199m), think about it, because there's a buzz that it could go soon. (All Sun. 1-4, except Blanche, also open Sat.)

Be sure to tell them MBC sent you.
