The Beaux-Arts home, located on 74th Street between Madison and Fifth avenues, dates back to 1898. It was designed by architect Alexander Welch and it has housed many famous names over the year, including artist Marc Chagall and the late Michael Jackson, who rented the house in the 1990s and 2000. Here is your chance to discover this astonishing New York house design.
The house is close to both Central Park and the Met Breuer and its exteriors and some of the interiors were used as a stand-in for Nate Archibald’s rich house on Gossip Girl. The Michael Jackson townhouse was also used as the office of therapist Susan Lowenstein (aka Barbra Streisand) in the 1991 movie The Prince of Tides.
Current owner Marc Lasry, the billionaire co-owner of the Milwaukee Bucks, has listed the limestone and red brick house for $39 million. The “King of Pop” lived there from the middle of 1999 through early 2000, and Lasry paid $11 million for it in 2011, according to public records.
