In the past seven days, 12 new listings priced at $10 million and above hit the market, according to StreetEasy. From that list, these are the crème de la crème, otherwise known as the five most expensive residential listings.
12 East 96th Street
Address 12 East 96th Street
Type/Size Townhouse: 14 bedrooms and 17 bathrooms
This 17,400-square-foot townhouse isn’t just the most expensive listing of the week, we’d hazard a guess that it’s the biggest too. Built in 1916 by Ogden Codman, Jr., it was once home to Robert Livingston, a blue-blooded American financier, but since 1990 the house has been home to the Italian international school, La Scuola d’Italia Guglielmo Marconi. It comes with seven stories, an elevator, a wood paneled ballroom, seven fireplaces, high ceilings, and a garden.
48 East 91st Street
Address 48 East 91st Street
Type/Size Townhouse: four bedrooms and five bathrooms
On East 91st Street you’ll find this 20-foot-wide townhouse, which comes with high ceilings, large windows, custom molding, a library, a formal living room with a wood-burning fireplace opens, multiple terraces, and a landscaped garden. According to city records, the owner is Leslie Harwood Ehrlich.
178 East 94th Street
Address 178 East 94th Street
Type/Size Townhouse: six bedrooms and six bathrooms
Upper East Side townhouses reign supreme this week. There is an unfortunate lack of listing photos for this spread, but we do know the home took two years to design and build, and that is has herringbone oak floors, paneled doors, and grand moldings throughout, along with a garage, a large elevator, and a roof terrace.
56 East 66th Street
Address 56 East 66th Street
Type/Size Townhouse: five bedrooms and five bathrooms
This spread offers a chance to live next door to Andy Warhol’s former home, which is quite a selling point if you ask us! The listing though, seems to suggest work is needed to get the home up to the standards of the renderings provided, and the word “potential” is used more than once.
1 Central Park South #1801
Address 1 Central Park South #1801
Type/Size Condo: four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms
You’ll find this pretty condo at the Plaza Hotel. It comes with detailed moldings, wood and marble inlaid floors, and some flawless stained-glass ceilings. It’s owned by fertilizer tycoon Bolat Nazarbayev, who is the brother of the president of Kazakhstan.
