A double-dip deal that included an Upper West Side co-op once owned by actress Glenn Close topped Manhattan’s luxury market last week. 

The two apartments at 211 Central Park West, asking $19.5 million together, were the priciest homes in the borough to find a buyer between June 17 and June 23, according to Olshan Realty’s weekly report. 

Units 19D and 20D listed together by the same owner in February, though the two co-ops weren’t combined. The seller had plans for a duplex drawn up by architect Peter Pennoyer, but opted not to complete the renovation. 

The seller bought the 19th-floor apartment from Close in 2010 for $10.2 million, and eight years later, purchased the 20th-floor co-op for $6.6 million. Together, the corner apartments span 4,400 square feet and have five bedrooms and five bathrooms. 

They also have two terraces, along with sweeping views of Central Park and the southern cityscape. Amenities at the building, known as The Beresford, include doormen, a fitness center and storage. 

Sotheby’s International’s Serena Boardman had the listing.

In total, 30 properties asking $4 million or more land signed contracts, one fewer than the previous period. Last week marked the seventh this year to notch 30 or more luxury contracts, compared to 13 weeks in the same period in 2023.

The second most expensive property to enter contract was a penthouse at 505 West 19th Street in Chelsea, with an asking price of $17.5 million. The full-floor apartment spans more than 5,600 square feet and has four bedrooms and four bathrooms. 

The condo, which last traded for roughly $15 million in 2017, hit the market last May with an asking price of $20 million. It has a 64-foot terrace, library and great room. Amenities in the 35-unit building, built in 2015, include a doorman, fitness center and laundry room.
