In the past seven days, 29 new listings priced at $10 million and above hit the market, according to StreetEasy. From that list, these are the crème de la crème, otherwise known as the five most expensive residential listings to hit the Manhattan market.
Address 12 East 79th Street
Type/Size Townhouse: eight bedrooms and seven bathrooms
When it comes to the price tag, this week’s top entry is certainly a little more restrained than last week’s (but only because its had a serious price chop since it first hit the market in 2014 asking $51 million.) Its sizable 16,000 square feet is spread across six stories, an English basement and a cellar. It’s right across the street from former Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his very-very-nearly two townhouses.
Address 20 East 78th Street
Type/Size Townhouse: seven bedrooms and eight-and-a-half bathrooms
Another townhouse takes the second spot this week and its within a stone’s throw of the pad above. It’s owned by a Michael Price, who bought it in 2003 for $14 million, and was designed by David Easton. It comes with a sun room, a garden and interesting ceilings galore.
Address 33 East 74th Street #PH2
Type/Size Condo: four bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms
This duplex is perched atop of 33 East 74th Street, a building which has recently been converted from a row of 19th-century brownstones into 10 condos. This penthouse is the most expensive of the bunch. It has 4,844 square feet of indoor living space, 2,867 square feet of private outdoor space, solid oak flooring, oversized windows and custom molding and millwork.
Address 464 Greenwich Street
Type/Size Townhouse: five bedrooms and five bathrooms and two half bathrooms
This Tribeca townhouse was built in 1892 by the builder Hugh Getty for Samuel Crooks, a wholesale coffee and tea merchant who used the building as a roasting plant. The current owner, who bought the place in 2008, commissioned the French architect Thierry Despont to redesign the residence into a single-family home, which now includes a grand entrance foyer, a rooftop terrace, a gym, a sauna and a commercial-sized elevator. Fun/depressing fact, in 2002 the building was bought for the grand total of $365,000.
Address 145 Central Park West #4C
Type/Size Co-op: four bedrooms and five-and-a-half bathrooms
This is one of five apartments up for grabs right now at the twin-towered, Emery Roth-designed San Remo. It comes with a gourmet chef’s kitchen, a formal dining room, a balcony, a library and Central Park Views. But they aren’t quite as good as Demi Moore’s are from upstairs.
