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.
7 East 76th Street | Off Market
The sprawling townhouse at 7 East 76th Street only appeared on the market around a month ago, and already it’s vanished. The house, which belongs to Japanese billionaire Bungo Shimada, is known as Clarence Whitman Mansion.
It was first listed in 2015 for $50 million; the price was later dropped to $42 million. But it most recently came with a $45 million price tag.
11 North Moore Street #9THFLR | Off Market
First it was the penthouse, then it was the 9th Floor, and now it’s gone altogether.
Whatever the name, the spread first hit the market in 2014 for a $40 million. Then Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio took a peek at the place. In 2015, the price was chopped to a pinch under $30 million, and its most recent ask was $25 million. Watch this space. We suspect to see it back on the market soon and with a new price to boot.
1 Central Park South 603-605 | Off Market
We already bid farewell to one of the combinations associated with this group of units at the fancy Plaza Hotel, and now, another one bites the dust.
Combining apartments 603 and 605 would result in a 3,212 square-foot apartment with all rooms facing Central Park. It was most recently asking $23.5 million. A larger combination opportunity, including apartment 601, is still available for $38 million.
232 East 63rd Street | Sold
Now you see it, now you don’t. This opulent Upper East Side townhouse has just sold for a cool $18.5 million, and we can’t help but think the house is worth it for the ceilings alone! There’s also painted murals, silk walls, mosaic tiling and a swimming pool we’d really like to take a dip in.
Prior to selling the house had been on and off the market since 2011.
24 Gramercy Park #8/9N | In Contract
This is likely the last we’ll see of this Gramercy Park spread for a while, seeing as it’s just gone into contract. The five-bedroom co-op was last asking $16 million and comes with four exposures, three Juliette balconies, a formal dining room, an oversized media room and the best amenity of all — the much coveted key to the park.
