Thanks to our friends over at StreetEasy, we’re rather on top of this city’s real estate comings and goings — emphasis on goings.
This week, a handful of highly priced pads left the market, and here are the ones we’re saddest to see go — although, we rather suspect we’ll see some of them again soon, perhaps with a spanking new price tag.
26 Downing Street | Off Market
The most expensive pad to bid farewell to the market this week is this West Village townhouse. Most recently on the market for $23.5 million, the custom-built home comes with five bedrooms, floor-to-ceiling windows on every floor, a gym, a roof top observatory and a garden too.
14 East 11th Street | Off Market
Just like the property above, this pad was also most recently listed for $23.5 million — although we have to say we like this one a little more. The 7,400-square-foot townhouse has been on and off the market since October 2015, and it comes with approximately 7,400 square feet of interior space spread out across five floors.
City records show that the unit was once owned by the Cornell University Foundation, but the most recent owner is the mysterious 14 E 11TH LLC, who paid $8.95 million for the pad back in 2012, they have gut renovated the house, adding high-end finishes, a 10-zone air conditioning system, heated floors and an elevator.
132 East 62nd Street | Off Market
Owned by an “accomplished designer,” the pad was originally put on on the market in 2014 for an asking price of $27 million. At the time, artwork by Andy Warhol, Anish Kapoor, Roy Lichtenstein and Piet Mondrian, and books signed by Norman Mailer, Truman Capote and Joan Didion, were included in the sale.
It has since been chopped to $22 million, and the listing doesn’t note any fancy freebies.
26 East 80th Street | Off Market
This spread last changed hands in 2015 and this was its first foray with the market since, it was asking $21 million.
The six-bedroom townhouse comes with original architectural details galore, along with an eat-in kitchen, a family-media room with surround-sound, and an approximately 990-square-foot, planted and irrigated rooftop garden.
100 Eleventh Avenue 19th Floor | Off Market
This full-floor spread in Chelsea is made up of two apartments — one owned by actor Kelsey Grammer, and one owned by his neighbor, tech CEO Larry Mueller. The pair teamed up to try and sell their units at the Jean Nouvel-designed building at 100 Eleventh Avenue.
A little sleuthing revealed that the pad has only partially left the market. It would appear it was a co-exclusive, but now only one $19.3 million listing remains, meaning Corcoran’s Julie Pham has sole control. Both apartments are also still available separately.
