It looks like Trump Park Avenue‘s Penthouse 31/32 is still looking for a buyer, a year and a half after a chopping $10 million off of its $45 million asking price. This 6,278-square-foot duplex has such a storied past on the market, you practically need an ESPN commentator to narrate it Kentucky Derby style. It made its first showing in 2007, asking $45 million. It raised the price to $51 million in 2008, after renovations. It returned in 2009, after another hiatus, asking a much lower $31 million. Then it disappeared for a few years before reappearing in 2013 with its original price tag of $45 million. Three months later it slashed $10 million off the price, landing at $35 million. Will this lavish home ever find the perfect owner with the perfect wallet?

Broker Nadine Adamson has put her own four-bedroom triplex, located in a Clinton Hill brownstone at 42 Downing Street, on the rental market for the remainder of the summer, asking $10,000 a month. The prewar home has a country vibe with original details and a private garden. However, Adamson is quick to point out that the chickens roaming the yard do not come with the home. Apparently they were just renting for the month of June.
The former home of indie film star and “Big Love” actress Chloë Sevigny is back on the market. Sevigny sold the garden-level abode located at 119 East 10th Street back in 2013 for $1.76 million to tech power couple Halle Tecco and Jeffrey Hammerbacher. The couple then turned around and gave the 1,250-square-foot pad a nine-month overhaul that was featured in Apartment Therapy. Now, it’s back on the market, sporting a modern new look, a slightly modified floor plan, and a $2.2 million price tag.
What if we told you you could have an entire 2,664-square-foot brownstone in Brooklyn for under one million dollars? This four-level home at 374 Decatur Street in Bed-Stuy has everything you need to make your dreams come true. Naturally, you’re going to have to put in a little sweat equity (or you can always pay someone), but the final result will be exactly what you want it to be and well worth the $855,000 investment. Sound interesting? We thought so.
Want to live in the city without giving up your greenery? This $1.45 million two-bedroom garden apartment in Cobble Hill might be the perfect solution. It offers 1,020 square feet of space in a 25-foot-wide brownstone co-op, with a beautifully manicured backyard and a gorgeous patio. We’re talking enough green space to entertain you, friends and family, Fido, and your weedwhacker. Now that sounds promising.
Something about this West End penthouse feels like a Florida vacation home. It’s surrounded by a fully planted wraparound terrace on three sides, and there’s plenty of light from large windows and oversized glass doors. Plus, it has some high-end finishes that make this $775,000 unit (yup, a penthouse for well under $1 million) really stand out.
Here’s a particularly gaudy apartment for those who want to literally feel like a king and queen of their palace. This six-story, 13,000-square-foot mansion at 7 East 84th Street came on the market for the first time in almost two decades in 2013, asking $30 million. It appears that after two years and no takers, it has finally lowered the price by a whole million, landing at $29 million. It’s appropriately located inside the Metropolitan Museum Historic District, so its statues must feel right at home. Plus, it has a temperature-controlled wine cellar and tasting room in the basement that looks like it’s straight out of “Game of Thrones,” so we had to take a look.
If you want to live in one of the oldest private co-ops in Harlem, here’s your chance. The 25-foot-wide, 102-foot-long unit at 152 West 131st Street has an interesting floor plan with the living room and dining room on complete opposite sides of a long narrow hallway. But it has charming original details, nice finishes, and it’s in an adorable brownstone, so the $1.1 million pad is definitely worth a look.
If you thought you missed out on the chance to live in Soho‘s only freestanding home, you’re in luck. Just two weeks after we broke the news that 514 Broome Street had sold for $6.887 million, it’s back on the market with a new paint job and a rental price tag of $22,500 a month. Interestingly enough, “Million Dollar Listing” start Ryan Serhant is the broker once again.
