This Week’s 5 Most Expensive Listings

In the past seven days, eight 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 to hit the Manhattan market.

21 East 61st Street #16A

Address 21 East 61st Street #16A
Price $19,900,000
Type/Size Condop: three bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms
At the very top of the Upper East Side’s Carlton House, is this 3,500-square-foot penthouse. It comes with 1,120 feet of wrap-around terraces, and although the listing points out that the interiors are finished in “a soft, calming palette,” all we see is shades of white.

252 West 12th Street

Address 252 West 12th Street
Price $19,600,000
Type/Size Townhouse: six bedrooms and five-and-a-half bathrooms
Coming in at second place this week is this West Village townhouse. Built in 1910, it comes with wine storage, a finished basement, and a very lovely kitchen. The current owners did some smart shopping in 2010 when they snapped up this spread for a seemingly reasonable $6.8 million, which makes the current asking price an impressive 188 percent increase. And they decorate beautifully.

212 Fifth Avenue #17A

Address 212 Fifth Avenue #17A
Price $16,600,000
Type/Size Condo: six bedrooms and five-and-a-half bathrooms
212 Fifth Avenue started life in 1912 as an office building, and now, in classic New York style, its turning into luxury condos. Of the 28 units that have hit the market to date, over half are in contract, including the two most expensive units. No word on the apartment itself, but it comes with access to a host of amenities including a screening room and a fitness center.

60 Riverside Boulevard 3201/2/3

Address 60 Riverside Boulevard 3201/2/3
Price $14,900,000
Type/Size Condo: 10 bedrooms and 11-and-a-half bathrooms
This gargantuan spread takes up an entire floor at The Aldyn. The apartment itself comes with river views, Brazilian cherry floors, and three kitchens (one for each of the original apartments that made up this spread). Plus there are amenities aplenty including a pool and a basketball court.

212 Fifth Avenue #14A

Address 212 Fifth Avenue #14A
Price $12,100,000
Type/Size Condo: three bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms
212 Fifth Avenue makes this list again, but this time it’s a few floors down and a couple of million cheaper. This unit comes with all the same amenities, and the apartment has features like oak floors, soaring ceilings and what looks like a whole lot of marble.
