The dog days of summer took a toll on luxury real estate last week, with just 21 contracts signed on properties $4 million and up, according to Olshan Realty’s latest luxury report.

Of homes that went into contract, the average asking price was $6.8 million; properties spent an average of 350 days on the market.

With 3,096 square feet, the condo has a six-foot by 15-foot terrace; the building’s 40,000 square feet of amenities include a 75-foot pool, rock-climbing wall, basketball and squash courts, bowling alley and café.
