The priciest residential listing to hit the Manhattan market this week is a full-floor, five-bedroom, four-bathroom co-op penthouse with an asking price of $25 million, according to Streeteasy.com. Juliette Janssens and Allison Koffman at Prudential Douglas Elliman have the listing for the property, which appears to be located at 975 Park Avenue between 82nd and 83rd streets. The listing itself does not mention the specific street address beyond Park Avenue. The home features wrap-around terraces, a solarium-style eat-in kitchen and oak floors, according to the listing.

Paula Del Nunzio of Brown Harris Stevens has the next priciest listing this week — this one for a single-family townhouse located at 116 East 70th Street between Park and Lexington avenues. The asking price for the property comes in at $22.5 million and, according to Streeteasy, measures 6,730 square feet. The townhouse has five bedrooms with the potential to create a sixth. The property underwent a complete renovation in 2004 and has both terrace and garden space.

Head downtown to 436 West 20th Street between Ninth and 10th avenues in Chelsea, where Michael Bolla at Prudential Douglas Elliman has an $18.95 million listing. The 25.5-foot-wide mansion currently stands as a five-unit residence, but can be converted into a single-family home, the listing says. The home measures roughly 10,000 square feet and can fit nine bedrooms and 13 bathrooms. The five-story building has terraces on every floor and a garden space. The building can be delivered vacant.

Besides the most expensive listing this week, Elliman also has the week’s least expensive listing. Athena Witt and Victor Larroche are marketing a 500-square-foot co-op located at 100 La Salle Street between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue in Morningside Heights. The home is a studio that has one bath and garden views. The asking price is $215,000.

The next least expensive listing is with Roy Beason at Brown Harris Stevens, who’s marketing a one-bedroom co-op unit at 70 Park Terrace East in Inwood for a $225,000 asking price. The home also has one bathroom and strip hardwood floors.

The next cheapest unit to come online this week is for an Upper East Side studio co-op located at 321 East 71st Street. Gary Pauyo and Ruth Kempinski at Elliman have the listing with an asking price of $225,000. — Zachary Kussin
