One of the aspects of New York homeownership that is so appealing to prospective buyers is the potential of having more living space. But that doesn’t just mean an extra bedroom or more closets. Homes with outdoor spaces — especially backyards — are winning big with New York buyers, and it’s easy to see why. Having a beautiful backyard to enjoy is one of the greatest perks of owning your own home. If you’ve been dreaming of lazy afternoons relaxing in your own outdoor space, then check out these New York homes with amazing backyards!
