Top 10 condo sales of 2022

Updated February 6, 2023 - 5:34 pm

A penthouse at Turnberry Place sold for $6.5 million and led 2022 as the top resale in the luxury condo market.

The three-bedroom penthouse unit on the 38th floor of Turnberry Place has 8,205 square feet on the inside and more than 10,000 square feet total when private terraces are included. The sale closed on May 5.

Originally planned for six bedrooms and eight baths, the floor plan was modified to accommodate a living room, theater, wine cellar, palatial primary suite and expansive balconies, according to listing agent Cristine Rosa Lefkowitz with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Nevada Properties. She was also the seller’s agent.

Lefkowitz called it a “trophy top-floor penthouse and mansion in the sky.” It is a double-floor with a private pool and the largest top-floor penthouse in Turnberry. Each tower has only one of those master units, she said.

“What differentiates this from most of the penthouses is you have double balconies,” Lefkowitz said. “When you are standing in the unit, you have glass walls on the front and the back. You have a 270-degree view. You see the Strip, downtown and mountains.”

The flooring came from Italy and cost $1 million, she said. The property also features an internal private elevator, “gorgeous” millwork, private theater, “iconic” main bedroom suite, Lefkowitz said.

Turnberry Place has the Stirling Club located on the property grounds — a private membership club offering full spa service including salon, barber shop, massage, nails, facials and other treatments.

■ In January, the No. 2 sale of 2022 closed on a 16th-floor unit at One Queensridge Place for $5.6 million. The four-bedroom unit measures 6,404 square feet. Anthony Spiegel with IS Luxury was the listing agent and buyer’s agent.

“That unit is one of four (of those floor plans) in the entire complex,” Spiegel said. “It has four bedrooms, a theater and office. It’s probably the single-best floor plan in all of One Queensridge Ridge. It’s basically a 6,400-square-foot, single-story home in a condo with a massive garage, one for three cars and one for two.”
