Thirty-nine contracts were signed last week at $4 million and above, according to the latest luxury market report from Olshan Realty.
Topping the list was a Greenwich Village townhouse owned by Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick at 20 East 10th Street. The price of the 25-foot-wide home dropped to a most recent ask of $20 million, down from $25 million when it first hit the market in September 2012, according to the report.
The home features seven wood-burning fireplaces and 6,800 square feet. The couple purchased it in 2011 for $19 million and completed renovations.
The second priciest sale was a penthouse at 135 East 79th Street asking $17.8 million, down from $19 million when it was first listed in September 2012. This was the last of 30 units that the Brodsky Organization sold in its limestone, prewar-inspired building. The duplex condo spans 4,476 square feet and contains four bedrooms and five and a half baths.
The average number of days on the market for $4 million plus contracts last week was 214, and the average discount from the original to the last asking price was just 3 percent.
