Paula Del Nunzio had the priciest single-family listing to hit the Manhattan market this week — a $51 million townhouse at 12 East 79th Street on the Upper East Side. Built between 1901 and 1903, the 16,000-square-foot home features brick and limestone facades and an elevator, according to the listing.

The second priciest listing this week is a $29.9 million condominium at the Zeckendorfs’ 15 Central Park West, currently owned by Deutsche Bank’s London-based head of commodities research Michael Lewis. The 2,761-square-foot, three-bedroom unit boasts panoramic park, city and river views and a “gourmet eat-in kitchen,” according to the listing. The master bedroom suite features a walk-in closet and ensuite bath, and building amenities include an in-house chef, library, game room, terrace, wine cellar and screening room. Brown Harris Stevens’ Jill Roosevelt has the listing.

Third on the pricey end this week is a $23 million condominium at the Residences at the Ritz Carlton at 10 West Street in Battery Park City. Lined by 150 feet of windows affording Hudson River views from every room, the 4,293-square-foot, four bedroom home boasts a marble entry foyer, living area with a fireplace and media wall and a large eat-in kitchen. The master suite includes a walk-in closet and dressing table, as well as a steam shower and soaking tub in the ensuite bathroom.

The cheapest apartment to hit the Manhattan market this week is a $139,000 restricted-sale one-bedroom co-op at 135 West 115th Street in Central Harlem. Located on the fifth floor of a pre-war, elevator co-op, this fixer-upper holds a large kitchen and three large closets, including one walk-in, according to the listing. Halstead Property’s John Wehba has the listing.

The second least expensive pad to premiere this week is a studio co-op at 675 Academy Street in Inwood, asking $165,000. Listed by Douglas Booth at Halstead, the unit is being marketed as a pied-a-terre or starter home in a commuter-friendly locale. The listing holds little detail about the first-floor unit, but building amenities include an elevator, laundry in the building, a live-in super and parking.

The third cheapest apartment for sale is a $175,000 restricted-sale fixer-upper at 100 West 141st Street also in Central Harlem. This 1,200-square-foot, four-bedroom home needs a new kitchen and bathroom, according to the listing, but has original hardwood flooring. The unit also boasts 10-foot ceilings and the building has an elevator. Independent broker KellieMadden has the listing. – Julie Strickland
