The priciest residential listing to hit the Manhattan market this week belongs to rock star Jon Bon Jovi, according to StreetEasy. The condominium home, which has an asking price of $42 million, is located inside the star-studded 158 Mercer Street. Deborah Grubman and David Dubin of the Corcoran Group have the listing. The 7,452-square-foot unit is a duplex penthouse with five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms. Special features include three landscaped terraces, a media room and a wood-burning fireplace in the great room.

The next priciest listing is also for a penthouse unit — this one located at 150 Charles Street in the West Village. The asking price for this 4,610-square-foot condo home ticks in at $35 million. Like Bon Jovi’s home, this unit has five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms, as well as outdoor terrace space. The home has its own private elevator, radiant heat floors and a steam shower in the master bath and a wood-burning fireplace in the living area. Douglas Elliman is handling sales at the new development.

Things happen in threes: The week’s next priciest listing is for another penthouse — this one located farther downtown at 56 Leonard Street in Tribeca. This full-floor unit, measuring 5,489 square feet, has a $25.5 million asking price. Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group is heading up marketing at the building. Again, this home has five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms. Special features include floor-to-ceiling windows, 700 square feet of outdoor space and 14-foot ceilings.

Halstead Property’s Michael Coker has the week’s cheapest listing. The co-op home, located at 42 West 138th Street in Central Harlem, has an asking price of $130,000. The home comes renovated with hardwood floors, according to the listing.

The next cheapest listing this week is located a stone’s throw from the previous one — at 48 West 138th Street, a condo conversion where Rubicon Property is managing the sales office. The 317-square-foot studio has exposed brick, a shower stall with a rainforest showerhead and hardwood flooring. The asking price is $189,150.

Again, things happen in threes. The next cheapest listing is located in the same building. This home is a 291-square-foot studio with exposed brick, a rainforest showerhead and hardwood floors. —Zachary Kussin
