A Central Harlem condominium that sold for $365,000 was the cheapest single-family deal last week in Manhattan. The ninth-floor apartment is in a 185-unit doorman building — dubbed Strivers Gardens — at 300 West 135th Street between St. Nicholas Avenue and Frederick Douglass Boulevard. The unit last sold for $280,365 in 2005, according to StreetEasy. No broker information was available.

Next on the list: a Yorkville co-op at 233 East 86th Street. The 725-square-foot, one-bedroom apartment, which was listed with Corcoran’s Sandra Balan, sold for $450,000, just shy of its $475,000 asking price. The unit in the doorman building features custom wood cabinets, hardwood floors and granite countertops in the kitchen. Residents have access to a bi-level roof deck and private garden.

For the third-cheapest apartment sale of the week, we head downtown to a 500-square-foot one-bedroom co-op at 303 East 37th Street in Murray Hill that sold for $459,000. The sixth-floor space was listed at $479,000 with agent Robin Fifield of the Apartment Luxe Realty Group. The unit sports a recently updated kitchen, original wood inlay floors and a separate kitchen.

Halstead Property’s Pat Publik had the fourth most modest sale of the week, a one-bedroom co-op in Lincoln Square that went for $505,000. The seventh-floor north-facing apartment, at 165 West 66th Street, was listed at $519,000 and features separate kitchen and living areas with parquet tiled floors. Building amenities include a gym, garage, play room and bike and storage rooms.

Rounding out the list was a 618-square-foot one-bedroom apartment in East Harlem, also listed with Sandra Balan of Corcoran. The fifth-floor tax-abated space at 161 East 110th Street, dubbed the Mirada, went for $516,000, $1,000 more than its asking price and features private outdoor space, Brazilian teak floors, an open chef’s kitchen, stainless steel appliances and a “spa-caliber” marble bathroom. Residents of the “premier 68-unit luxury development” enjoy a 24-hour concierge service, Rooftop Terrace, a fitness center and underground parking. — Angela Hunt
