The home is currently listed in Sotheby’s International Realty and was first purchased by Versace in 1995. According to the listing, the late designer then completely redesigned the interior so potential buyers would have the opportunity to “live like royalty” [and] Own a piece of real estate and fashion history.”
A total of 17 rooms occupy 14,175 square feet and are spread over six floors, each with a different feel.
Upon entering the palace, visitors will notice a Greek character when greeted by a “dramatic marble gallery displaying a circular staircase and elevator.”
Moving to the garden level, the building features hand-painted canvas walls that open directly onto a private garden. There is also a recently renovated breakfast room, laundry room and kitchenette on this floor.
The resistance piece on the third floor, on the other hand, is a painted ceiling “reminiscent of the Sistine Chapel, featuring restored 19th-century paintings sourced from Versace from a Florentine palace depicting Elysian scenes” according to the listing.
The first level is the basic suite, complete with a dressing room, double spa bath with giant marble Jacuzzi, steam shower, and double sinks.
Four more bedrooms and two bathrooms connected to a sitting room make up the fifth floor, while there is a Moroccan-style media theater and a game room with a beautiful skylight on the upper floor.
There is also, of course, a beautiful rooftop terrace with a gazebo that offers visitors great views of the city.
Given the price tag attached to the beautiful mansion, we can only dream of a stay on the Upper East Side menu—but New Yorkers can dream right now, right?
