3. Time to pack it in. The "last penthouse" at Ten East Delaware has gone to someone richer than you. The 34th-floor 3/3.5 has the "perfect floor plan" featuring a foyer, library, fireplaces, a very large balcony, underwhelming kitchen, and hotel amenities including room service and pool-side dining. Listing in January for $2.4M, the unit nudged down ever so slightly to $2.385M. Sorry to be the party pooper, but there may still be a lesser unit or two available from the developer's original stock.

2. The one time neighboring unit to the co-op that Oprah once owned and almost occupied has just sold for $3M. A spitting image of the ex-Oprah dwelling, this sixth-floor space in Benjamin Marshall's 199 E LSD has 4,300 square feet, three beds, three-and-a-half baths, glamourous finishes, a balcony, $5,553 in monthly assessments, and a curbside highway. On the market for a year, a mil was shaved off the initial asking price.

1. An old and marvelous stone mansion on Cedar Street tops this week's priciest sales roundup. The 1891 five-bed boasts 6,400 square feet (we know... it fails the conventional 8,000 sf mansion criterium), renovated interiors with mahogany floors, sculptural marble fireplaces, custom kitchen w/ eat-in booth, master suite w/ office and terrace, and a roof deck. The property has a dainty yet treasured rear patio, courtesy of its cramped Gold Coast location. Ah well, we all make sacrifices. The seller is personal injury attorney Thomas Demetrio, and the buyer is a bank trust. Demetrio took a $1.4M loss over his 2000 purchase, and the final closing price was $3.1M.
