Going, going, gone: The snazziest pads to depart from the market this week

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.

This week we are bidding farewell to this pre-war penthouse. Most recently asking $18.5 million, the four-bedroom spread has interiors by Mario Buatt. It comes with wood-burning fireplaces, a library and a planted terrace. Look beyond the fussy-ish decor and the most charming part of this place might be its quirky ceilings.

Pass the tissues please; LLNYC had dreams of moving into this West Village townhouse but alas it’s gone into contact, and we certainly aren’t the ones who snapped it up. The house was most recently asking $19.6 million, and its new owners will be getting  six bedrooms, wine storage and a south-facing garden.

We’re not quite sure what’s happening with this listing. StreetEasy tells us it’s off market, but the listing still appears to be live. It has a history of flirting with the market though, so we wouldn’t be surprised either way. The six-bedroom pad first hit the market in 2014 asking a whopping $42 million, and most recently was asking a pinch under $23 million — very nearly half its original ask.

We’re not too sad to say goodbye to this penthouse, mainly because it’s already back on the market. The spread is now dubbed the “9th Floor”, not as catchy, we’ve got to say. The non-penthouse comes with five bedrooms, a whole host of windows, private elevator entry, a double-height great room, a chef’s kitchen, a private master floor and a private roof terrace with a pool.
