UPDATED, July 13, 3:15 p.m.: The first full week of July saw 22 contracts signed in at $4 million and above in Manhattan, with the top deal being a $24 million West Village townhouse, according to Olshan Realty’s latest market report.

The 26-foot-wide Greek Revival-style mansion at 10 West 10th Street was owned by Andrea Soros Colombel, daughter of billionaire George Soros, and her husband Eric Colombel. The price was reduced to $24 million after originally being listed for $29.5 million in October 2012. The couple purchased the seven-bedroom, eight-bathroom home for $11.5 million in 2006.

The second priciest deal was for an $18.5 million penthouse at 91 Central Park West, originally listed in November 2014 for $23 million. The four-bedroom, four-bathroom pad features a 1,600-square-foot terrace.

Of the 22 sales over $4 million, fifteen were condos, five were co-ops and two were townhouses. The average asking price for listings over $4 million was $7.1 million.
