The Corcoran Group’s Carrie Chiang had the priciest single-family residential listing to hit the Manhattan market this week with a $60 million condominium atop the Mark Hotel at 25 East 77th Street on the Upper East Side. The six-bedroom, 9,800-square-foot penthouse unit, with an additional 2,400 square feet of finished terrace space, is in the spot of the original hotel’s ballroom, according to the listing. The living room boasts a private entertaining space with double-height ceilings that are 26 feet high. The master suite includes a double-sided fireplace, sitting room and his-and-hers baths with a steam room.

A five-bedroom townhouse at 80 Washington Place in Greenwich Village that was once home to composer John Philip Sousa is the second-priciest resale to hit the market this week, with an asking price of $27.9 million. Following a three-year renovation, the home first hit the market in June 2013 asking $31.5 million, then tried for an $80,000-per-month rental in November of last year. The townhouse includes seven floors connected by a glass staircase and custom elevator, outdoor space with a teak cabana, and gourmet kitchen connected to a wine-tasting lounge. The master bedroom suite spans an entire floor and includes a fireplace, terrace overlooking a garden and separate dressing room. Robert Dvorin and Clayton Orrigo of Douglas Elliman have the listing.

Third on the pricey end this week is a $20 million condominium at 20 East 65th Street in Lenox Hill. One of two homes in a full-service “mansion condominium” building, the four-bedroom property was renovated in 2010. Period details such as ornate iron doors and a private marble gallery were restored, while all new electrical, mechanicals, security systems and a private elevator were added. The home boasts an eat-in kitchen, powder room, outdoor garden and master suite with a walk-in closet and marble bathroom. On the lower level, a media room, bedroom, full bath and laundry room can be found. Helen Marcos and Nikki Field of Sotheby’s International Realty have the listing.

The cheapest single-family home to hit the market this week is a $249,000 two-room studio co-op at 25 Tudor City Place in Murray Hill. The prewar unit boasts high-beamed ceilings, two closets, hardwood floors and a casement window with 30 panes. Building amenities in Tudor Tower include a 24-hour doorman, roof deck, laundry in building and a live-in super. Julia Hoagland of Brown Harris Stevens has the listing.

Second on the inexpensive end this week is a $275,000 studio co-op at 121 East 88th Street in Carnegie Hill. Also a prewar unit, the home features high ceilings with original moldings, hardwood floors, an updated windowed kitchen and windowed bath. Joyce Mincheff of the Corcoran Group has the listing.

Third cheapest of the week is a $279,000 studio co-op at 421 West 57th Street in Midtown West. The unit boasts high ceilings, two large closets, oak floors and an exposed brick wall, in addition to a separate kitchen with full-size appliances.
