Opulently curated by the previous owner, fashion legend, Gianni Versace, and meticulously restored by the current owners, this residential Italian Baroque masterpiece offers an opportunity to live like fashion royalty and own a piece of real estate and fashion history.
Grandly designed, 17 luxurious rooms meld together in opulence and couture design. This stately, spacious 35-foot wide Limestone Mansion sited on a 35- by 100-foot lot has approximately 14,175 interior square feet on 6 floors with 3,025 exterior sq. ft. of magical trellised Garden overlooked by a rear Balcony which runs the full width of the house. A Rooftop Terrace with Gazebo overlooks Fifth and Madison.
Versace, the late fashion tycoon purchased the neoclassical building in 1995 and fully redesigned the interior with the same Italian Baroque style often referenced in his over-the-top couture including intricate Italian Marble floors, painted ceilings and walls, mosaic and Austrian parquet floors, five fireplaces, and opulent Baths. Versace’s genius and vision is revealed over the first 4 floors, each presenting the designer’s legendary taste and permeates the home. The upper two floors were redesigned in a lighter, more whimsical manner. These levels include terrazzo floorings with marble inserts, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, a Game Lounge with billiards and arcade games, and a Moroccan-style Media Room.
