In the past seven days, 20 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.
50 East 69th Street
Address 50 East 69th Street
This week’s most expensive listing is a gargantuan 21,070 square foot Upper East Side townhouse in need of a little TLC. Formerly the Center for Specialty Care, an outpatient facility for plastic surgery, the home was built in 1917 by the cotton tycoon Otto Louis Dommerich, who demolished two houses in order to build this 44-foot wide spread. It comes with three elevators, 14 fireplaces and a stained glass dome at the top of the curved main staircase.
269 West 11th Street
Address 269 West 11th Street
The listing describes this home as, “a mansion in the making.” And that seems accurate. The Greek Revival townhouse comes with approximately 8,540 square feet of interior space plus an impressive 1,200 square foot garden. Built in 1836 it has high ceilings, multiple fireplaces and grand proportions.
63 East 82nd Street
Address 63 East 82nd Street
Type/Size Townhouse: seven bedrooms and eight-and-a-half-bathrooms
Townhouses are dominating this weeks most expensive list, and here’s another one belonging to the Upper East Side. Built in 1899, this six-story spread comes with high ceilings, a sweeping staircase, a landscaped garden, a Juliet balcony and some bold design choices.
1125 Fifth Avenue #9FL
Address 1125 Fifth Avenue #9FL
Type/Size Co-op: five bedrooms and four-and-a-half-bathrooms
With 50-feet of Fifth Avenue frontage, it’s not surprising that this sizable co-op has impressive Central Park views (even if they do seem to be obstructed by scaffolding in the listing photos). It comes with a bedroom wing, a formal dining room, a library, staff quarters and we’re sort of in love with its old school charm.
53 West 53rd Street #50A
Address 53 West 53rd Street #50A
Type/Size Condo: three bedrooms and three-and-a-half-bathrooms
Last but by no means least is this condo at the Jean Nouvel-designed “MoMA Tower”. When the building is completed this 3,952-square-foot spread will have interiors designed by Thierry Despont, a master suite with Central Park views, hotel-like amenities, and best of all – Museum perks.
