Location: New York, N.Y.
Price: $95,000,000
The Skinny: New York has been awash in ultra-high-priced listings, and sales, recently, but a new full-floor listing on the 18th floor of the Sherry-Netherland hotel is the first co-op to enter the near-$100M price range. Listed for $95M, the seven-bedroom apartment boasts 7,000-square-feet of recently-renovated interiors, plus 2,000-square-feet of terraces, including one with sweeping views of Central Park (though it's oddly only pictured in the Times coverage). The pricey spread is owned by Liberty Travel co-founder Gilbert Haroche, who assembled it by purchasing and combining adjacent apartments—Curbed NY found the original, uncombined floorplans. Remarkably, this is the second $95M property that Haroche has put up for sale in recent years. His 263-acre country estate, on the border of Connecticut and New York, was previously listed for that amount, but it is unclear if it ever sold. That estate, known as Hillandale, was once owned by the Sulzberger family, publishers of the New York Times.
