We've been hearing nothing but crickets on our open house threads the past few weeks, but that doesn't mean they're all dead! A StreetEasy poster opined on a visit to 895 West End Avenue this weekend, checking out a $2,400,000 corner seven with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. You can check out the whole open house recap here. For those of you who aren't fascinated by the nitty gritty review of this apartment (although we don't see how you couldn't be), here are the closing thoughts:
When this listing first appeared last week, I was taken aback by the price. The high-water mark for 895 WEA is $2.15MM, established in 2006 by #10A and matched in 2007 by #5B. After seeing #12A, my view has softened because this is arguably the best apartment in the building and should command a premium. $2.4MM still seems ambitious, given the age and limited scope of the renovation; but in the context of its current competition - particularly the condo conversions at 845 and 905 WEA, plus recent sales at 885 WEA - the owners may have the right idea. What do you guys think of the listing? Realistic or not?
