In one of the most expensive residential real estate markets in the world, New York City, the addresses below are the Top 5 most expensive closed sales in 2013!
All are located in Manhattan and there isn’t one specific neighborhood that dominates (with the possible exception of the Upper East Side which is very well represented – see map above)!
So without further ado and courtesy of Curbed, here are the Top 5:
$42M – 18 GRAMERCY PARK
The 18 Gramercy Park penthouse set a Downtown record (which will be broken once the Walker Tower penthouse sale closes) when it sold for its full $42 million ask. It was also, somewhat surprisingly, the largest sale to close this year.
$34.35M – ELLEN BIDDLE SHIPMAN HOUSE
Who would have thought that neither of the top two sales of the year would be on Central Park? Not us, certainly, but here you have it: the Ellen Biddle Shipman house sold for almost $35 million after being listed for $48.5 million.
$32.5M – 15 CENTRAL PARK WEST
15 CPW always makes an appearance or two on this list, and this year is no exception. A corner 4BR closed in January for $32.5 million, earning its owners, former Lehman Brothers employees who bought the pad in 2007, a tidy $15 million profit.
$25M – 15 CENTRAL PARK WEST
On the very same floor of 15 CPW, NASCAR star Jeff Gordon sold his 3BR/3.5BA for $25 million after buying it for $9.7 million in 2007 and redesigning it with lots of dark wood and granite.
$24M – 720 PARK AVENUE
This multi-terraced pad in the Rosario Candela-designed 720 Park Avenue sold quickly, and for almost the full ask, after it was listed in March.
