The five most-viewed listings on The New York Times’s Find a Home site in February included a home in Texas surrounded by lush landscaping and a New Hampshire shack that will probably be torn down to build something bigger.
1. Windows on Park Avenue
$2.95 Million | 1133 Park Avenue, No. 3 West, Upper East Side
Holding onto the top spot for the second straight month — but now with a $345,000 discount — was a three-bedroom, two-bathroom corner apartment in Manhattan. Eric Cohler, an interior designer, created the space for his mother, complete with pocket doors, high ceilings and a decorative fireplace.

2. In a Forest of Oaks
$50 Million | 854 Fifth Avenue, Upper East Side
Holding at third place from January was an over-the-top Gilded Age townhouse with 17 bedrooms and 15 bathrooms. The ornate interiors are hard to stop clicking through, though they are out of reach for most buyers.
$750,000 | 1612 Norristown Road, Maple Glen, Pa.
Next up was a four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom house with an additional bedroom in the walkout basement. With 5,029 square feet, it is being sold fully furnished — including a pool table and a pair of comfy looking leather sofas.
5. It’s Not About the House
$2 Million | 445 Marcy Street, Portsmouth, N.H.
In fifth place was a house with a surprising price — until you realize the land is what’s really for sale. It’s described as the last large lot (0.36 acres) available in the south end of Portsmouth, where less modest homes abound.
