Priciest, cheapest units to hit the market

November 30, 2012 12:30PM

The most expensive home to hit the Manhattan market since Nov. 22 is a Gilded Age-era townhouse located at 57 East 64th Street near Park Avenue, according to As The Real Deal reported yesterday, the property, which can be used for a single-family residence, comes with a $48 million asking price. Beverly Cole at Key-Ventures has the listing, which says the home has a sweeping staircase, seven wood-burning fireplaces and 14,000 square feet of space.

The next three most expensive properties in this nine-day period — The Real Deal offices were closed on Thursday and Friday of last week for the Thanksgiving holiday — are all homes listed for $40 million.

The first is a townhouse located at 3 Riverside Drive between West 72nd and West 73rd streets on the Upper West Side. Patricia Vance and David Weiss at Douglas Elliman have the listing. Totaling 11,000 square feet, the home has six bedrooms and eight bathrooms. Dating back to 1899 and built in the French Renaissance Revival style, the home also includes Gothic and Renaissance details in its design.

But this asking price ties with that of another property to hit the market in the same time span. Douglas Elliman has another $40 million listing at 25 Columbus Circle. Daniela Kunen has the listing for this five-bedroom, seven-bathroom, 4,382-square-foot condominium home at the Time Warner Center. According to the listing, the home has city, Hudson River and Central Park views. The Real Deal reported that this home first hit the market in 2008 with a $25 million ask — it was taken off after a month.

The next most expensive listing has an asking price of $25 million and is for a duplex co-op home at 960 Fifth Avenue near East 77th Street. The home has three bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, Central Park views and floor-to-ceiling windows in the master bedroom that offer additional park views. Ira Guzzardo at Charles Rutenberg Realty has the listing.

The Corcoran Group’s Karen Shenker has the least expensive listing to come online since just before the holiday. The co-op home at 100 West 141st Street near Malcolm X Boulevard has an asking price of $220,000, four bedrooms and one bathroom. The 976-square-foot home has been fully renovated, according to the listing, and has brand new oak hardwood flooring.

There’s also a tie for the next cheapest listing. Lisa Castro at New Heights Realty has the listing for an Inwood co-op at 72 Park Terrace. The 700-square-foot, one-bedroom, one-bathroom home has an asking price of $239,000 and comes with original pre-war oak hardwood floors.

For the same asking price, head down to Lincoln Square, where William Clark III of Weichert Mazzeo has a listing for a one-bedroom, 550-square-foot co-op. The home is located at 230 West End Avenue.

The next least expensive home is a $245,000 Yorkville co-op located at 417 East 90th Street. Robert Nelson at Triton REO Management Corp. has the listing for the studio home. — Zachary Kussin
