It’s one thing to own a Versace and another to live in his mansion! And giving you an opportunity to do the latter is The Field Team at Sotheby’s International Realty that has listed Gianni Versace’s former mansion on sale for a cool $70 million.
The 35-foot-wide Neoclassical home spans more than 14,000 square feet. It features over six elevator-serviced floors complete with Italian marble, mosaic, and Austrian parquet floors, five carved stone fireplaces, eleven bathrooms, an expansive roof terrace with a gazebo, and more.
The living room alone spreads across 650-square-foot and comes with a painted ceiling inspired by the Sistine Chapel and restored 19th-century panels. Other spaces include a reception room, a spacious library/office, and a dining room.
The kitchen too matches the luxe interiors and boasts updated high-end appliances, along with an adjoining breakfast room that opens to a 1,000-square-foot garden. In addition to this, the second floor also includes an additional kitchen unit alongside a Moroccan-style media lounge and a circular game lounge.
While the property can accommodate nine bedrooms, it currently fits in five principal bedrooms and a couple of staff rooms. The full-floor suite includes a private sitting room, a luxe bathroom, and a spa area with a coffee bar, while the rest include guest and family rooms divided into two suites.
The gorgeous home is currently owned by Swedish hedge-fund manager Thomas Sandell, 61, and his 46-year-old wife Ximena Sandell, who purchased it in 2005 for $30 million. It was refurbished into its current form and is listed on sale with Nikki Field from Sotheby’s International Realty.
Commenting on the property, Nikki said, “It’s like going into the ‘Alice in Wonderland’ of Gianni Versace. It’s going to be purchased by someone who has that same reverence.” Well, we can’t disagree with that either!
