112 Waverly Place, top townhouse contract of the week (The Corcoran Group) 112 Waverly Place, top townhouse contract of the week (The Corcoran Group)
With the Thanksgiving holiday falling between November 20-26, 2023, the abbreviated business week resulted in fewer Manhattan real estate contracts being signed by default. However, that was still time for a number of exciting deals to take place.
Leading the charge was a five-bedroom duplex residence at the top of the J.E.R. Carpenter-designed 920 Fifth Avenue, asking $23,500,000. While this was the top contract by a $10 million margin, Olshan Realty's luxury report notes that the price represents a $3.4 million reduction from when it was listed in October 2021 and that the apartment is in need of renovation.
The top townhouse contract and second-highest overall was for 112 Waverly Place, a Federal-style townhouse in the heart of Greenwich Village asking $13,500,000. The townhouse's listing touts acclaimed playwright Lorraine Hansberry's former residency; however, when it was listed for $15.5 million in May 2023, the New York Post chose to highlight its status as the former home of then-power couple Johnny Depp and Kate Moss in the mid-1990s. The most recent buyer of the property, which includes a carriage house, has not been identified.
88 Central Park West Annie Leibovitz
Further uptown, celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz's apartment at The Brentmore on Central Park West entered contract with an asking price of $8,600,000 just over a month after she listed it. While that was good enough for the fifth-highest contract of the past week, Ms. Leibovitz will nevertheless take a loss on it, having paid $11.25 million for it in 2014.
