Manhattan’s luxury market is moving past its Thanksgiving hangover.

The borough notched 17 contracts were signed for homes asking $4 million or more, according to Olshan Realty’s weekly report, up from 12 reported the previous week. 

The most expensive home to enter contract was a limestone townhouse at 10 East 75th Street, which asked $23.5 million and spent roughly two months on the market to cap off a decade of sales attempts.

The seven-story, 19.5-foot-wide home spans nearly 10,500 square feet. The home has six bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms, along with a landscaped roof garden and an elevator. 

Alison Schneider, daughter of former Bear Stearns CEO James Cayne, and her then-husband bought the home for $8.3 million in 2002. The 100-year old home underwent a three-year renovation by architect Peter Pennoyer and designer Victoria Hagan before listing in 2012 for $33.5 million and again in 2015 for $38.5 million

The asking price was later reduced to $28 million before the property was pulled off the market in 2018. Annual real estate taxes are $260,000.

Brown Harris Stevens’ John Burger and Heather Sargent had the listing.

Of the 17 units to enter contract last week, 11 were condos, four were townhouses and two were co-ops.
