So while the South Bronx might be hot in terms of real estate buzz, it’s not the home of the most expensive listings in The Bronx for residential properties.
So where in The Bronx are the most expensive properties for sale?
From single families to coops and condos, Riverdale is still the undisputed leader in the real estate world of The Bronx when it comes to this category.
In fact, every single listing listing in the top ten category is in the greater Riverdale neighborhood which includes swanky Fieldston as well as Spuyten Duyvil.
Here they are from “cheapest” to most expensive:
10. 5250 Independence Avenue – Asking $3,850,000
This is really such an average looking home on the inside (maybe it’s the decor) but with 7 bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms it’s anything but average. Oh did we mention that it comes with a pool AND a pool house? [see more]
9. 645 West 252nd Street – Asking $3,850,000
This 4,800 square foot center hall colonial was built in 1930 and is listed as a 5 bedroom home with 4.5 baths and a swimming pool. It’s one of the nicer homes on our list. [see more]
8. 640 West 237th Street, #20B – Asking $3,950,000
This is the only condo apartment that actually made the top ten list.
At $3,950,000, 640 West 237th Street #20B in Riverdale is the most expensive condo on the market in The Bronx. The massive 2,755 square foot apartment has four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms with stunning views of the Hudson River and Jersey Palisades.
The unit has access to tons of amenities like a rooftop with its own telescope and even a catering kitchen.
Of note is that this unit is located in the infamous Solaria Condominium where in 2009 over 50 units were sold at 45% off because the developer couldn’t sell them. This is perhaps the biggest failure in condo history in The Bronx. [see more]
7. 4611 Arlington Avenue – Asking $3,975,000
Not much to go by on this one as this is one sparse listing but it’s a 7 bedroom home built in 1899 (apparently recently updated or at least rather judging by the only interior picture) and has 5.5 bathrooms. The home also features 3 fireplaces. [see more]
6. 404 West 246th Street – Asking $3,995,000
This home has been on the market for almost two years and has dropped over $500k from its original asking price of $4.5 million back in 2016. It’s not uncommon for such homes to be on the market for so long in the area either. This 4,820 square foot home has 16 rooms, 6 bedrooms and five full bathrooms with two half-baths. It also has almost half an acre of land on its over-sized lot which is typical of Fieldston and uncommon in most of land-starved NYC. [see more]
5. 4485 Fieldston Road/4506 Delafield Avenue – Asking $3,995,000
Here’s a bargain deal: Two houses for the price of one. This sale is for two separate lots with two separate houses with a 5,000+ square foot guest house (4506 Delafield) with an indoor pool, four bedrooms and four bathrooms. The main house at 4485 Fieldston Road was built in 1930 and is much smaller at just 3,948 square feet. Doesn’t appear that they’re being sold separately. [see more]
4. 4925 Arlington Avenue – Asking $4,850,000
This one’s another bargain as you get three in one with a main house with 7 bedrooms and 7.5 baths, a second building with a gym and a third building with an office and a studio apartment. [see more]
3. 4730 Fieldston Road – Asking $6,650,000
This one is a special gem and a massive 10,000 square foot mansion on 1.3 acres of land across two lots. Try finding lot sizes that big in New York City outside of Fieldston and you’ll be hard pressed. This 20 room home has 10 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms (and 4 powder rooms). Bring your racket as the property also has its own badminton court. [see more]
2. 5275 Arlington Avenue – Asking $6,999,000
This whopper of a home has been on the market for over a year and has seen a price chop of just over $1 million bucks. The estate is a 15,000 square foot mansion on almost 2 acres of land with 24 rooms, 11 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms and is owned by the Republic of Kenya. [see more]
…and the most expensive house for sale in The Bronx is:
1. 4490 Fieldston Road – Asking $7,395,000
4490 Fieldston Road is for sale for a mere $7,395,000 and was listed a little over a month ago. What could possibly warrant such an asking price you ask?
Well the home itself is a modest 9 room “guest house”and built in 1930 with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths set on almost three full acres. And that’s where the hefty price tag comes in because you can build two quite massive mansions on the lots. You can purchase the vacant land by itself for $5.5 million but the house is not available by itself. It’s either all or just the vacant land.
A house this size on 3 acres in NYC is unheard of and perhaps might just be the ONLY home in NYC with that much land. [see more]
Hey…while we can’t afford any of these homes, we can dream, no? Which one is your favorite?
