An Upper East Side mansion, which was once the residence of the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, has recently been listed. The six-story home located at 4 East 74th Street between Fifth and Madison Avenues is asking $39 million. It is “located on one of the world’s most prestigious Central Park residential blocks”, as per the realty listing by Adam Modlin at Modlin Group. The luxurious home was designed in the Beaux-Arts tradition by American architect Alexander Welch of Welch, Smith and Provot. Welch is well known for Hamilton’s residence in Harlem.
The 119-year-old building still retains the detailed carvings on its original limestone façade. The home has roughly 12,745-square-feet of luxury space, and stands on a lot that is 25-feet-wide and 107-feet-deep. Located less than a block away from Central Park, it boasts 16 rooms and a grand parlor floor. The exquisitely updated home features seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, two powder rooms, and a staff room with its own bathroom. It has high ceilings, and plenty of sunshine. Extra amenities include a media room, 10 fireplaces, original oak wood floors and paneling, an abundance of moldings throughout, a magnificent detailed oak staircase, and an elevator. The home has an abundance of outdoor space, including a first floor garden terrace and a rooftop deck with full views of the Upper East Side.
As reported by NBC NY, the home is being listed by its most recent owner, billionaire and Milwaukee Bucks co-owner Marc Lasry. In the 1990s, Michael Jackson rented and resided in the home. The illustrious residence was once the home of modern artist Marc Chagall. It has been featured in the television series “Gossip Girl,” as the home of the character Nate Archibald. It was originally built in 1898 and purchased by Francis Lynde Stetson , a successful attorney.
