Priciest, cheapest units to hit the market

May 17, 2013 12:00PM

The priciest home to hit the Manhattan market this week is, in fact, the most expensive for sale by owner listing in New York City apartment history, as The Real Deal reported yesterday. Long Island developer Steven Klar relisted his triplex CitySpire penthouse at 150 West 56th Street for $100 million — the same asking price it had last year when it came on the market with Douglas Elliman. The condominium unit measures 8,000 square feet, and has six bedrooms and nine bathrooms. Amenities include a private elevator, wine cellar and panoramic views.

The next priciest listing is also a former Elliman property that was taken off the market. However, 80 Washington Place — a single-family townhouse in the Greenwich Village — underwent a broker change. Robert Dvorin and Clayton Thomas Orrigo of Town Residential now have the listing with a $28.9 million ask. The 8,757-square-foot property once belonged to composer and conductor John Philip Sousa, as previously reported. The property has five bedrooms and seven bathrooms. Amenities include a two-story living room, a Zen garden and a media room.

Also located in the Greenwich Village is another townhouse, which is the week’s next priciest listing. More specifically, this 8,300-square-foot property is said to belong to actor Tom Cruise, as The Real Deal reported today. Kyle Blackmon of Brown Harris Stevens has the listing for the home, which is located at 42 West 12th Street. Standing six stories, there is a finished basement, five terrace spaces and seven fireplaces.

Head up to Hamilton Heights for the week’s least expensive listing, which is located at 371 Edgecombe Avenue. Collette Smith of Halstead Property has the listing, which says the space needs a gut renovation. Listed for $135,000, the co-op home has two bedrooms and one bathroom.

The next cheapest listing is located in the very same building. Halstead’s Smith also has this listing for the two-bedroom co-op, which has views of Yankee Stadium. The asking price is $140,000.

The next cheapest home, also listed at 371 Edgecombe Avenue by Smith, is a two-bedroom co-op. The home, which has a $150,000 ask, also needs a gut renovation, according to the listing, and has a windowed kitchen. —Zachary Kussin
