But the 16-room home at 4 East 66th Street has actually sold over ask for $52 million, making it this year’s biggest co-op sale and the seventh biggest co-op sale to date. It’s also the first time this pre-war building has cracked the top-ten list. The couple bought the home in 2007 from hotelier Robert H. Burns for $29 million, leaving them with a nice chunk of change.

The 7,500-square-foot residence offers Central Park views from all the main entertaining spaces. Ceilings are 12+ feet high, and giant, single-pane windows let in plenty of light.
