Michael Jackson’s Former New York City Home On the Market for $39M

Details of the original structure, including limestone facades and warm red brick, still exist today.

The former Upper East Side home of the late pop star Michael Jackson has been listed for $39 million. Built in 1898, the home is “located on one of the world’s most prestigious Central Park residential blocks” between Fifth and Madison avenues, according to the listing by Modlin Group. American architect Alexander Welch, who was behind Alexander Hamilton’s well-known residence in Harlem, designed the six-story house in the Beaux-Arts tradition. Jackson rented the mansion in the 1990s.

Before that, it was the home of modern artist Marc Chagall. It was also in the series “Gossip Girl,” where it was used as a stand-in for character Nate Archibald’s home, according to Curbed. Most recently, it was owned by billionaire and Milwaukee Bucks co-owner Marc Lasry, who recently put it on the market with a $39 million price tag, Curbed reported.

It comes with a long list of amenities, including a garden-level terrace, a rooftop deck, and 10 fireplaces. Take a look inside.

The 119-year-old home at 4 E. 74th St. is less than a block away from Central Park.
The six-story mansion has 16 rooms and a grand parlor floor. Its high ceilings bring in an abundance of natural light.
It’s in one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in the city, with destinations like The Met Breuer just blocks away.

A detailed oak staircase provides access to the home’s six floors for those who don’t want to use the elevator.
A gallery leads to some of the home’s seven bedrooms. There are also eight bathrooms, two powder rooms, one staff room and one staff bathroom in the residence. Original oak wood floors, paneling and moldings are featured throughout.
