To top it all off, the fully pre-wired pad is warmed via radiant heating beneath French herringbone oak floors.

The week’s next priciest listing, a historic $46 million townhouse at 125 East 75th Street in Lenox Hill, was built in 1965 by financier Paul Mellon and his wife, White House Rose Garden designer Bunny Mellon. The luxurious pad boasts between five and eight bedrooms, eight baths, a chef’s kitchen, wine room and elevator. Louise Beit of Sotheby’s International Realty has the listing.

The next-priciest listing of the week is down in the West Village at 755 Greenwich Street.
