NEW YORK, April 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- New York City's first exclusive residential real estate buyers brokerage, Elika Associates, has closed its second largest residential transaction to date. Elika Associates Founder and Principal, Gea Elika, has represented the buyer in the purchase of a $12.9 million penthouse at 141 Fifth Avenue. According to Elika, the 5600sq feet six-bedroom, six and a half-bathroom penthouse at the 141 Fifth Avenue condominium was purchased by a buyer that prefers to remain private.
"Matching the discerning needs of the buyer was challenging given the lack of desirable luxury penthouses currently available. After monitoring the market for three months we were able to secure a truly unique opulent penthouse that will allow for my clients to enjoy the very best of New York City," said Elika. "My clients desired to be represented with undivided loyalty and I'm proud that Elika Associates is the only buyer's advocate in New York."
Commended by the New York City Landmarks Conservation 141 Fifth Avenue is one of the grandest buildings in the Flatiron District. The southern portion of the building was erected in 1897 and designed by Robert Maynicke and the building was extended to the north in 1900 by architect Henry Edwards Ficken.
The gracious beaux arts penthouse features its very own Cupola, panoramic city views and a classic design aesthetic, including many custom ornate details, four terraces, top-of-the-line kitchen and marble master bathroom. The condominium development is an understated pleasantly intimate building that provides the perfect setting to enjoy New York City living.
"As New York City continues to recover from the Global financial crisis demand for unique luxury properties is too," said Elika. As a designated buyers agency, Elika Associates is optimistic about the growing demand for larger luxurious apartments and is currently working with a number of affluent buyers who are eyeing Manhattan's finest properties.
