The sales team at Starwood Capitalâ€™s Baccarat Hotel & Residences has the weekâ€™s most expensive listing to hit the Manhattan market, according to Streeteasy.com. The $60 million condominium, at 20 West 53rd Street, is a 7,381-square-foot duplex penthouse with five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms.
The 46-story Baccarat building was recently reviewed by The Real Dealâ€™s architecture critic James Gardner, who described it as â€œone of the remorselessly rectilinear office towers for which the firm is mainly known.â€
The next priciest listing is a $26.9 million two-unit combination at the storied Plaza Residences at One Central Park South. The Corcoran Groupâ€™s Sarah Thompson and Bernice Levanthal are marketing the 10-room, 4,368-square-foot condo that sports four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms and offers expansive views of Central Park.
Rounding out the list is a Lenox Hill townhouse at 53 East 64th Street, which was listed for $26 million with Asher Alcobiâ€™s Peter Ashe. The five-bedroom triplex apartment has a marble powder room, and two of the bedrooms have private marble bathrooms.
On the other end of the market, this weekâ€™s cheapest listing is a Hamilton Heights co-op studio with an asking price of $65,000. Located at 529 West 152nd Street, the apartment is listed with Nest Seekers Internationalâ€™s Nahabed Mazmanian and Ilarion Zyma. According to the listing, the apartment is near the subway and simply â€œneeds a little TLC.â€
The next cheapest listing is a $135,000 Central Harlem co-op at 42 West 138th Street. The one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment is listed by Halstead Propertyâ€™s Michael Coker and is pet-friendly, according to the listing.
And finally, the third spot goes to a $160,000 co-op in Hamilton Heights, at 3962 Broadway. Listed by A.C. Lawrenceâ€™s Walter Steffen, the recently gut-renovated 405-square-foot apartment has hardwood floors, and the building allows pets. â€“ Hiten Samtani
