The Charles Makes History
A unique, luxury space located in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, The Charles was designed by Ismael Leyva Architects, developed by Bluerock Real Estate, LLC built in 2013. The condominiums are all four-bedroom, four-bathroom spaces that take up the entire floor with elevator access inside each apartment.
Located on First Avenue between East 71st and East 72nd Street, the 32-floor, 27-unit architectural marvel sits in a coveted, quiet neighborhood between the East River and Central Park. Recently, the luxurious residence made headlines for a record-breaking sale according to real-estate appraiser Jonathan Miller: the highest amount ever paid for a home on the Upper East Side east of Third Avenue.
Two buyers, who are related to one another, purchased the spaces on the 29th, 30th, 31st, and 32nd floors to create an approximately 11,750-square-foot quadruplex. The spaces (two duplex apartments, one penthouse apartment) sold for a total of $58.635 million.
And for that price, the buyers will not only get a large, luxurious and unique space in one of Manhattan’s wealthiest neighborhoods, but The Charles also features concierge and doorman services, a gym facility, as well as a children’s playroom.
