Gail Bornze, Estelle Meister and Steven Cid at Douglas Elliman have the priciest listing to hit the Manhattan market this week with a $21.8 million townhouse in Lenox Hill. The 10,120-square-foot property at 591 Park Avenue is being marketed for use as either a private residence or small luxury corporate headquarters and boasts a roof terrace overlooking Central Park.

Across the park at 38 West 87th Street on the Upper West Side, Team Rocco New York at Blu Realty Group has the week’s second-priciest listing with a $17.5 million ask. The 8,400-square-foot townhouse, originally built in 1891 and designed by architect Gilbert Schellenger, is being completely rebuilt and will be completed for a summer move-in. The property boasts six bedrooms, a chef’s kitchen, a 500-foot solarium and a large outdoor garden.

We head back east for the week’s third-priciest listing: a 4,357-square-foot co-op at the former Stanhope Hotel asking $13.99 million. Located at 995 Fifth Avenue, the renovated five-bedroom home — built in 1926 by Rosario Candela but converted into a cond-op by Extell Development — features living and dining room views of Central Park and a fully-equipped Smallbone kitchen.

The week’s least expensive property, a restricted-sale one-bedroom co-op at 849 Saint Nicholas Avenue in Hamilton Heights, is asking $140,000. The living room offers city views, and the HDFC-cooperative building has undergone extensive renovation. The property is listed by Douglas Booth at Halstead Property.

The second-cheapest offering of the week is just down the west side at 310 Riverside Drive. This studio co-op, listed by Rachel Yohannes at Oxford Property Group, has a $245,000 ask. Located in a prewar, landmarked building, the property features high, beamed ceilings, a renovated kitchen and large closet, and building amenities include a bike room, live-in super, doorman, elevator and laundry.

The week’s third-cheapest listing, a one-bedroom co-op sponsor unit at 24 Bennett Avenue in Hudson Heights, is asking $289,000. Peggy Raye Guttilla at Majestic Rose Corporation has the listing in the renovated, prewar property. Building amenities include an elevator and laundry in the building. – Julie Strickland
