Summer is often the time that New Yorkers start to seriously consider leaving the city for the suburbs—you can't blame us as the stifling heat and lack of green spaces can be a real bummer. And if you've got your eye on Connecticut (the Metro-North being your favorite mode of commuter transportation, perhaps), you might want to consider this large two-bedroom, three-bathroom loft-style apartment in Stamford, which is an express stop on that aforementioned Metro-North.

Part of a gated community on the border of Old Greenwich and Stamford, the over-2,000-square-foot apartment has an open plan, wood floors and a gourmet kitchen with tons of cabinet space, granite counters, a Wolf stove and stainless appliances.

And for those who are tired of their claustrophobic New York City apartments, the two-story ceilings in the living room and dining room here and their myriad windows will probably be much appreciated for the airiness they offer. There's also a gas fireplace, a large planted deck, as well as a second terrace.

The main floor has the master bedroom suite with a marble bath and a custom walk-in closet (the stuff suburban dreams are made of!).

Since it's part of a gated community, that means buyers have access to a club house, business center, gym, pool, hot tub and fire pit. And as an added bonus, it's dog friendly, which is good because, honestly, what is the point of living in the 'burbs if you can't have a dog running around?

The asking price: $899,000, or in some Manhattan neighborhoods, the price of a one-bedroom.
