The most popular listings on The New York Times’s Find a Home site in October all carried forward from the roundups of previous months; and all but one, a $359,000 co-op in Inwood, are expensive, from $1.295 million up to $88 million.
5. For You and a Dozen Guests
$19,000,000 | 187 Umpawaug Road, Redding, Conn.
This massive, 50-acre “gentlemen’s farm” fell to fifth place from fourth in September, and has been among the most popular listings since June. A seven-bedroom main house is surrounded by three guesthouses, a pool, and a three-acre pond, for starters.
4. Upscale Waterfront Living
$4,999,000 | 1075 W Park Avenue, Long Beach, N.Y.
Moving from third place to fourth, this five-bedroom, 8,339-square-foot, bayfront house will attract lovers of the outdoors with its dock and heated saltwater pool — if they’re ready for the $5,895 monthly tax bill.

3. A Different Price Bracket Altogether
$359,000 | 251 Seaman Avenue, No. 3D, Inwood
Moving up to third place after holding fifth in August and September, this modestly priced, 795-square-foot, one-bedroom, one-bath, renovated co-op in an Art Deco building is a block from 200-acre Inwood Hill Park.
$88,000,000 | 9 East 71st Street, Upper East Side
Falling from the top spot in September, this 28,0000-square-foot Manhattan townhouse is cast accurately online as “gargantuan.” The term also describes the shadow of its former owner, Jeffrey Epstein, the convicted sex offender who died in jail in August 2019.

1. Rooftop Haven
$1,295,000 | 130 West 86th Street, No. 16A, Upper West Side
Stepping up to first place from second in September and fourth in August, this heavenly terrace has a one-bedroom, one-bath apartment attached. The new kitchen and bath and proximity to Central Park are bonuses.
