The priciest home to find a buyer between Feb. 1-7 was the 10th and 11th floors at 1045 Madison Avenue on the Upper East Side, also known as The Benson, which was asking $27.95 million. The buyer purchased two separate floors with plans to combine it into one 8,386-square-foot duplex apartment. The buyer saw the unit virtually and never visited the building in person. According to Bo Poulsen of Brown Harris Stevens, who represented the buyer, they were originally looking for a townhouse, but this apartment had better light and proportions. “You get a different sense of light and feeling in this apartment,” Mr. Poulsen said. “There are high ceilings on both floors, a better layout and not as much wasted space with staircases.”
