StreetEasy’s Most Wanted: The millionaire’s club

It looks like big spenders were out in force on StreetEasy this past week:  This edition of the Most Wanted -- the 10 sales listings saved more often than any others by those surfing StreetEasy this week -- exhibits a definite tropism toward big spending and classy living.

Take this rather droolworthy $1.995m two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom condo (pictured) in TriBeCa, on Leonard Street between Church Street and Broadway. The south-facing prewar penthouse duplex loft comes with a private terrace, though the outdoor space has yet to be connected to the apartment (the seller has architectural plans and permits from the DOB to facilitate the process). You'll likely enjoy cooking in the chef’s kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, a cooking island and even a wine cooler. The listing notes that there’s a 24-hour Virtual Doorman, and carrying costs are on the low side, with common charges and property taxes ringing in at around $2,000/mo.

You’ll experience a whole slew of modern conveniences if you shell out $2.495m for a three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath condo on West 15th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues. All that moolah will get you an apartment with custom light fixtures, Venetian plaster walls, a kitchen with Viking appliances, and a master bedroom with three closets, a wall of windows and automated custom blinds. Plus, the master bath is spa-like with its steam room-style shower, deep soaking tub, double vanities and heated tile floors. A private laundry room comes with an all-new W/D, utility sink and storage. Pets are only welcome on a case-by-case basis.

A move-in ready $1.899m three-bedroom, two-bathroom co-op on West 26th Street (between Sixth and Seventh Avenues) in Chelsea is flooded with natural light that streams in through the oversized windows and skylight. The 11.5’ ceilings and gallery light and gallery-reveal-style walls add a unique touch of class -- as does the claw-foot soaking tub. Central a/c, heated bathroom floors and a Miele washer and vented dryer are other perks. However, your chance at nabbing this one may have expired: Best and final offers were due at noon yesterday, according to the listing.

A $1.395m two-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bathroom condo on East Fourth Street and Broadway in NoHo offers double the bang for your buck since it’s a duplex. Located on the 11th floor of The Silk Building (a prewar landmark building), the renovated apartment features central a/c and oversized windows with unobstructed views to the south and north. A wood-burning fireplace adds to the prewar charm, and the kitchen -- with its granite counters, Viking gas stove and Bosch dishwasher -- adds a more modern touch.
