(New York) — This week’s biggest sale was a penthouse that sold for $15,587,000 at the Laureate on the Upper West Side, according to city records.
The 4,105-square-foot five-bedroom condominium is distinguished by details like a gas fireplace, a walnut spiral staircase and Bianco marble in the master bathroom — and 1,280 square feet of outdoor space.
The apartment is one of two in the building, at Broadway and 76th Street, that have private rooftop space, and the listing promotes the panoramic views that can be enjoyed year-round in the comfort of an outdoor hot tub.
Listing broker, Shlomi Reuveni, who is the senior managing director of Brown Harris Stevens SELECT, can add this $15,587,000 deal to the $200 million in sales that he completed at the Laureate alone last year.
But unlike nearly every other sale at the Laureate, this one did not shield the buyer’s identity behind a limited liability company. The new owners are G. Peter and Marguerite D’Aloia, according to city records. Mr. D’Aloia works in the chemical industry and serves on the boards of several companies.
Mr. D’Aloia is listed as the owner of another penthouse, at the Coronado at 70th and Central Park West, that he bought in 2007 for $3.35 million, according to city records.
Whatever that home may be lacking, the Laureate most likely has, including a kitchen designed by Deborah Berke that opens up to a breakfast room with French doors and a Juliet balcony. [The New York Times]
