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.
781 Fifth Avenue 18th Floor | Off Market
We happen to know that the full floor unit on the 18th floor of the Sherry Netherland makes an excellent party venue, but alas that doesn’t seem to be enough to sell the pricey pad.
Most recently asking a whopping $78 million, the spread has been on and off the market since 2015, and was originally asking an even more sizable $86 million. It comes with seven bedrooms, a library, and a balcony with a hell of a view.
151 East 58th Street Ph5152w | Off Market
Billionaire hedge fund manager and record-breaking art collector, Steven Cohen is the owner of this spread, and it seems as though he just can’t get rid of it. Cohen snapped up the unit in 2005 for $24 million, and first listed it for $115 million back in 2013. Then the price was dropped to $98 million, then $82 million, then $79 million before it was taken off the market altogether last December. In April 2016 it reappeared with a $72 million price tag, then asked $67.5 million – still to no avail.
Some say its cursed, and we’re starting to think they might be right.
3 East 95th Street Penthouse | Off Market
This $25 million penthouse belongs to Tamara Mellon, the shoe designer and co-founder of Jimmy Choo.
It first hit the market back in 2014 for $34 million, and since then it saw a couple of price chops. It comes with five bedrooms, 12-foot ceilings, a chef’s kitchen, a formal dining room, maid’s quarters, an enclosed solarium, a walk-in closet that is currently filled to the brim with shoes, and a whopping 5,290-square-foot of terraces.
34 East 74th Street | In Contract
This is likely the last we’ll see of this particular Upper East Side townhouse for a while.
The home — which was last asking $19.9 million — has gone into contract. It comes with five stories plus a basement, an elevator, an eat-in kitchen, high ceilings, a library, a wine cellar, a rooftop terrace, and a garden.
It was once owned by millionaire newspaper executive Harry F. Guggenheim (nephew of Solomon R. Guggenheim, of museum fame).
7 East 76th Street | Off Market
This 14,000-square-foot townhouse has also bid farewell to the market.
It was last listed for $42 million, and features nine bedrooms, two kitchens, two staff rooms, and original details galore. Plus a handball court, gym, greenhouse, finished basement in addition to the six other floors. Below the basement there is storage space and a wine cellar.
