The bath has Durango limestone walls and floors and a Kohler pedestal sink. Douglas Elliman’s Yosefa Galchen had the listing.

Fourth-ranked on the inexpensive end was a one-bedroom co-op at 345 West 21st Street in Chelsea that closed for $508,000. Originally listed for $525,000, the unit boasts a wood-burning fireplace, renovated kitchen and bathroom, and a bedroom with two California closets and through-wall air conditioning.
