The King of Pop was well-known for the lavish properties he owned; now, you can own a fabulous mansion that used to belong to him, meaning you can own a piece of Michael Jackson history! The late singer’s luxurious residence on the Upper East Side of Manhattan just hit the market and the price is set at a whopping $39 million.
The Beaux-Arts home, located on 74th Street between Madison and Fifth avenues has been home to many famous residents, including famed artist Marc Chagall and President Grover Cleveland’s law partner, Francis Lynde Stetson.
The Moroccan-born billionaire and the co-owner of Milwaukee Bucks of the NBA, Marc Lasry, is the latest well-known resident and he has listed the six-story mansion at an eight-figure price tag.
The NYC mansion was designed back in 1898 by architect Alexander Welch and was later purchased by a former law partner of the 22nd and 24th President of the United States, Grover Cleveland.
Standing at 12,745 square feet, the property has eight bedrooms, nine bathrooms, three sitting rooms, a media room, a cellar and even a home gym.
Also, the mansion includes a massive eat-in kitchen, an elevator, and central air conditioning/heating
The single-family home also has an impressive formal dining room
The house is certainly something special, with huge windows allowing natural light to enter everywhere
The six-story property also includes living quarters for the staff
Owning the mansion would be a dream come true for every lover of New York City, Michael Jackson, and American history
The rooms are spacious and the views are great
It’s a truly stunning place
The last owner bought the lavish mansion for $11 million in 2001
