The decadent Upper East Side mansion once owned by the late fashion designer Gianni Versace first hit the market back in April as an eye-watering $120,000 rental. Now it’s back on the market for a (comparative) steal – just $65,000, nearly half its original price.
The almost 14,000-square-foot townhouse, which sits at 5 East 64th Street, has five bedrooms, six bathrooms, an elevator, a tree lined garden, marble floors and a rear balcony which runs the width of the house.
The home’s owner – Swedish hedge fund manager Thomas Sandell, who purchased the spread in 2005 for $30 million – must have channeled his inner Versace for the bold interior design which includes animal print and velvet galore.
If you’re interested – and love a bargain – the spread will be available by mid-August.
Deborah Grubman, David M. Adler and Paul Albano of Corcoran have the listing.
