15-17 East 77th Street, the top contract of the week with a $32.5 million ask (The Corcoran Group) 15-17 East 77th Street, the top contract of the week with a $32.5 million ask (The Corcoran Group)
For the second week in a row, an Upper East Side townhouse had the top Manhattan contract: A pair of houses at 15 and 17 East 77th Street entered contract with an asking price of $32,500,000. But unlike last week's triple-mint home, these townhouses are being delivered in white box condition and with the ability to be combined into a massive Upper East Side mansion. One conceptual floor plan includes eight bedrooms, twelve full baths, four powder rooms, a living room, a formal dining room, an eat-in kitchen, two staff suites, a home gym, a home theater, a wine cellar, a mudroom, a roof terrace, and a sunroom. Neither the buyer nor the seller was identified, and the deal comes more than 10 years after the seller bought the houses for a total of $22.5 million (h/t Olshan luxury market report).
This was not the only Upper East Side home in need of work to enter contract this week: The top apartment contract and second-highest overall was for the penthouse at 993 Fifth Avenue, an Emery Roth-designed cooperative dating back to 1930, which entered contract with a $19,950,000 ask. Olshan notes that this marks a $19.55 million reduction from when it was originally listed for $39.5 million in June 2021, and that it will need to be completely renovated.

Built in 1878 as a row of Neo-Grec townhouses, designed by prolific Manhattan architect John G. Prague, these two continuous townhouses offer the rare opportunity to combine two single-family townhouses into one grand residence over 33 feet wide with approximately 14,000 square feet throughout while being located in one of the best locations in the Upper East Side (between Fifth and Madison Avenue).

Currently, both townhouses are in "white-box" condition with entirely demolished interiors ready for renovation with over 33-foot-wide frontage, on a 102-foot-deep lot including a rear private garden, along the north side of East 77th Street between Fifth and Madison Avenues.

Provided are combination floorplans crafted by Zivkovic Connolly Architects P.C, known for their award-winning portfolio of residential, institutional, commercial, and interior design projects. This proposed floorplan envisions a grand-scale residence with approximately 14,000 sqft of interior square footage with grand spaces featuring ceiling heights up to 12 feet high.
