Brown Harris Stevens’ Paula Del Nunzio had the priciest single-family residential listing to hit the Manhattan market this week with Spike Lee’s $28.5 million townhouse at 153 East 63rd Street in Lenox Hill. Also known as the Hatch House, the five-bedroom property boats a spread of 7,000 square feet, as well as a central courtyard.

Number two on the pricey end is Kiefer Sutherland’s former Greenwich Village townhouse at 763 Greenwich Street, now on the market for $22 million. The digs, which Sutherland gutted and revamped before selling to the current owner for $17.5 million in 2012, boast an Apple-based Savant system that controls the home’s audio, video, lighting and communications services. Several fireplaces fill the space, and the master bedroom boasts a private terrace and double bathroom. The finished basement includes a sauna, laundry and storage rooms. Meris Blumstein and Kenny Blumstein of the Corcoran Group have the listing.

The third-priciest listing is an $18.5 million, five-bedroom co-op at 145 Central Park West on the Upper West Side. The home boasts 65 feet of frontage along Central Park, and holds high ceilings, herringbone floors, classic moldings and a library. Three entertaining rooms face central park, and a corner living room features a hand-carved marble mantel framing the fireplace. John Burger of Brown Harris Stevens has the listing.

The cheapest listing to hit the market this week is a $225,000 two-bedroom co-op at 42 West 138th Street in Central Harlem. The listing offers no details beyond mention of a washer and dryer in the unit. Halstead Property’s Michael Coker has the listing.

Second cheapest this week is a $235,000 studio co-op at 415 West 46th Street in Midtown West. The unit, which boasts 10-foot high ceilings, “awaits your personal touch to make it shine,” the listing says. Douglas Elliman’s Donald Kemper has the listing.

Third on the inexpensive end is a $243,000 junior one-bedroom co-op at 447 Fort Washington Avenue in Hudson Heights. The two-room pad is freshly painted and well-maintained, according to the listing, and occupies roughly 425 square feet. Amenities in the prewar building include an elevator, gym, laundry and live-in super. Hikari Hathaway of Coldwell Banker Bellmarc has the listing. – Julie Strickland
