SOLD! Remember this house I listed just a couple of weeks ago, which Barack Obama, Jennifer Lopez and Mark Wahlberg all visited? Today the contract was signed at full ask of $16,250,000 at 460 West 22nd St, almost $4,000/sqft above grade and definitely a new record for Chelsea and perhaps all of Downtown. I'm so proud of my sellers for creating perfection, and sticking with it, and I'm happy (and jealous!) for the buyer because a house like this will not come back... She did however invite me to her Holiday dinners in the house.... #TheSell
An immaculately renovated townhouse on 22nd Street that dates back to 1840 just sold for its full ask: $16,250,000. Broker Fredrik Eklund announced the contract via
carrier pigeon Instagram, noting the home's celebrity-filled history, having played host to Barack Obama, Jennifer Lopez, and Mark Wahlberg. Eklund also claims that, at over $4,000/square foot, the sale sets a Chelsea record. In the neighborhood, the median price per square foot for all recorded sales is $1,165; for houses, that figure is $1,412. The sale was also the second-most expensive of last week, according to the Olshan Luxury Report. Suffice it to say that sellers Bill White and Bryan Eure, who bought the place for $4.6 million in 2012, have completely cleaned up in the Flipping Out department.
It went into contract a mere five weeks after being listed, as per Olshan, after "an extensive renovation overseen by Stephen Fanuka, of HGTV's Million Dollar Contractor and Suk Design Group. This 16-foot-wide, 5-story townhouse ... has approximately 5,000 square feet with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, an elevator, 4 gas fireplaces, and a garden, plus 3 terraces."
