Brown Harris Stevens’ John Burger and Ghislaine Absy had the priciest single-family residential listing resale to hit the Manhattan market this week with a $33 million townhouse at 12 East 77th Street on the Upper East Side. The five-story Brandeis House mansion could be used as a single-family home and includes a garden, and the proceeds will go toward the university’s endowment. The home was built in 1895 by developers Richard W. Buckley and measures approximately 11,450 square feet. The house includes an entrance with a 20-foot gallery and a parlor floor with a 25-foot living room and a 23-foot formal dining room, according to the listing.

John Burger also had the week’s second priciest listing with a $24 million townhouse at 111 East 65th Street Lenox Hill. This 1920-built, five-story home is located on a tree-lined street just off Park Avenue. The 8,200-square-foot property also comes with an 8,200-square-foot basement. The home has seven bedrooms and six-and-a-half bathrooms, and the buyer will be able to move between floors by stairs or with the home’s private elevator.

Third priciest this week is a $15.75 million condominium at 33 East 74th Street on the Upper East Side. The pad has three bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms and about 3,926 square feet of living space. Ceilings are about ten feet tall and the apartment boasts oversized windows, custom moldings and an interior designed by Alexandra Campalimaud and Beyer Blinder Bell Architects. Katherine Gaulthier and Eva Penson of Douglas Elliman have the listing.

The week’s cheapest listing, a $170,000 two-bedroom restricted-sale co-op at 530 Manhattan Avenue in Central Harlem, spans roughly 650 square feet and is in need of a gut renovation. Halstead Property’s Taryn Wisky has the listing.

Second on the inexpensive end is a $239,000 two-bedroom co-op at 541 West 133rd Street in West Harlem. The apartment features an open kitchen, a laundry room in the six-story, prewar building. Saul Scheveloff from Realty Networking Services has the listing.

Third cheapest this week is a 402-square-foot studio at 325 East 41st Street in Murray Hill, listed for $295,000.
