The top of the U.S. luxury market has been on a tear.
Last month, a Greenwich, Conn. estate sold for $US120 million, making it one of the most expensive residential properties ever sold in the U.S.
Then over the weekend, that record was smashed by the sale of a $US147 million compound on Further Lane in East Hampton to hedge fund manager Barry Rosenstein.
See how all these recent sales stack up.
The penthouse at the top of the under-construction One57 sold in May of 2012, reportedly to a group led by hedge-fund manager Bill Ackman. The still-to-be-completed pad sounds incredible, with almost 11,000 square feet, over two floors and access to the building's amenities, including a 65-foot pool with Central Park views, a library, theatre, and gym.
