Brown Harris Stevens’ Kathy Sloane had the priciest single-family residential listing to hit the Manhattan market this week with a $38 million co-op at 778 Park Avenue on the Upper East Side. The nine-room apartment, designed by architect Rosario Candela, holds multiple outdoor spaces, a wood-paneled living room with a wood burning fireplace and a library. The bedrooms are currently configured as three masters with ensuite baths, and two have their own private terraces.

Second on the pricey end this week is a $29 million six-bedroom co-op at 1060 Fifth Avenue in Carnegie Hill. Designed by James Carpenter in 1929, the home in a white-glove building is outfitted with “master-crafted” moldings, three wood burning fireplaces in the living room, dining room and master bed, herringbone oak floors and high ceilings. The pad is accessed via private elevator, and the chef’s eat-in kitchen can seat 10. The Corcoran Group’s Betsy Messerschmitt has the listing.

Third most expensive is a $19.9 million duplex penthouse co-op at 770 Park Avenue on the Upper East Side. Completely renovated in 2009, the prewar building spreads across eight rooms, four full baths and terraces. Douglas Elliman’s Diana Mulqueen has the listing.

The cheapest listing to hit the market this week is a $219,000 studio co-op at 98 Park Terrace East in Inwood. Described in the listing as “not some depressing shoebox,” the top-floor unit boasts a windowed kitchen with ceramic tile floors and stainless steel appliances, decorative arches and a tiled bathroom with the pad’s original, recently reglazed tub. Susanna Saarinen of Access Property Group has the listing.

Second least expensive is a $269,000 two-room studio co-op at 340 East 83rd Street in Yorkville. The prewar unit includes direct access to a private outdoor patio, and has a wall-through air conditioner and abundant closet space, according to the listing. William Spence of Keller Williams NYC is marketing the property.

Third on the inexpensive end this week is a $299,000 one-bedroom co-op at 1787 Madison Avenue in Central Harlem. The home boasts a large master bedroom and fully-equipped kitchen, and building amenities include a 24-hour attended lobby, live-in super, fitness center and central laundry room. Corcoran’s Dianne Howard has the listing. — Julie Strickland
