“An elegant apartment at 15 Central Park West with treetop vistas of Central Park just outside and a host of sophisticated customizations inside — like a built-in sushi bar in the great room overlooking the park — sold for $25 million and was the most expensive sale of the week, according to city records. The asking price for the 3,454-square-foot unit when it entered the market in May was $30 million, and the monthly carrying charges are $7,221.80.
A three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath condominium, No. 7C, it had been owned since 2007 by the Nascar superstar Jeff Gordon, who paid $9.67 million and was one of the first buyers at 15 Central Park West. He and his wife, Ingrid Vandebosch, commissioned extensive renovations and upgrades to the home, which was used as their urban pied-à-terre.
The couple recently moved to a $10 million four-bedroom, full-floor unit at the freshly converted Whitman on Madison Square Park, where one of their three neighbors (the Whitman has just four residences) is the former first daughter Chelsea Clinton and her husband, Marc Mezvinsky. The buyers of No. 7C are Mr. Gordon’s former downstairs neighbors; they elected to make a slight vertical move to gain a superior amount of living space. Nora Ariffin and Christopher Kromer of Halstead Property were the brokers for the seller, listed in public records as Carolina Real Property. The buyers, who used a limited-liability company, Mossullo, were represented by Noel Berk of Mercedes/Berk, also a resident of 15 Central Park West. The buyer’s apartment, No. 6E, a two-bedroom unit, is listed for sale with Ms. Berk for $10.3 million.”
