When Daniel Nir, founder and CEO of hedge fund Gracie Capital, and his wife, philanthropist Jill Braufman, listed their sprawling Upper East Side co-op for $48 million a year ago, it certainly caught raised a few eyebrows. 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. A private landing opens to a grand gallery, which leads into the drawing room and paneled library. This space spans almost 50 feet along Fifth Avenue and has two wood-burning fireplaces.

The dining room is large enough for two tables and feels very elegant decked out in velvet.
