Oleg Cassini — Listed for $65,000,000

15 East 63rd Street 15 East 63rd Street, #TH (Sotheby's International Realty)
Living room with detailed ceiling
Parlor with fireplace
Decades after he dressed Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and other famous actors, fashion designer Oleg Cassini is remembered almost as much for his tumultuous personal life as for his sense of style: His Gramercy mansion was part of a bitter estate dispute. Further uptown, The Real Deal identified the owner of an Upper East Side mansion as his “secret wife” (their 1971 marriage was announced only after his death in 2006) and noted that she and her sister, longtime residents of the house, have experienced numerous legal battles related to it over the years.

From the Listing:
Sophisticated and richly appointed, this rare offering of one of New York’s great Gilded Age limestone Beaux Arts mansions, is a glistening survivor, one of the few remaining and most architecturally intact of its Gilded Age splendor on the Upper East Side. Superbly located just off Fifth Avenue and Central Park. Built in 1901 by the financier and philanthropist, Elias Asiel, the townhouse is the masterwork of architect, John H. Duncan, one of the most important architects at the turn-of-the century, who also designed Grant’s Tomb. Reminiscent of the mansions of Paris, the extraordinary limestone façade with center entrance and secondary entrance, has delicate floral garlands, arched French windows, a copper mansard roof, and three terraces including two roof top terraces with glorious city and Central Park views.

The Undoing — Sold for $21,000,000

Living room with fireplace
Parlor with detailed ceiling
Private garden
The house at 8 East 63rd Street dates back to the end of the 19th century, when it was built for lawyer/former British ambassador Joseph Hodges Choate. Following his wife’s death in 1929 (Mr. Choate predeceased her in 1917), it was owned by members of the Woolworth and Maytag families (h/t Daytonian in Manhattan). However, drama fans may be most familiar with it for its appearance in Emmy-nominated miniseries The Undoing. It entered contract with a $27.995 million asking price in January 2024, and public records indicate that it closed in early March.

From the Listing:
Welcome to 8 East 63rd, an exceptional 25’ wide townhouse located on a tree lined street between Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue- along with the most exquisite real estate in New York City. This 10,000-square-foot and 9-bedroom home features three private terraces, an elevator, 11’7" ceilings, 6 fireplaces, and so much more. The home encases two duplex apartments which are separate except through the main stairwell. Upon entering is the ground floor gallery and a square formal staircase which stems through the rest of the home. The city block is famous for its limestone facades in the Beaux-arts and Italian Renaissance palazzo styles.

Succession — Listed for $18,500,000

Living room with fireplace 160 East 83rd Street, #TH (Douglas Elliman)
Formal dining room with fireplace
Private garden
Nearly a year after award-winning drama Succession went off the air, the show’s real estate is proving as memorable as the gripping storylines. However, season one of Succession isn’t the only time this Upper East Side mansion was featured onscreen – when it came on the market, the New York Post noted that it has also appeared in Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, Younger, and a Saturday Night Live skit, not to mention several Vogue photo shoots.

From the Listing:
This stately, 8,000 square foot townhouse is flooded with natural light and boasts a cleverly designed layout that seamlessly flows from one generously-sized room to the next. A stunning spiral staircase with an eye-catching oculus at the top serves as the centerpiece of the home. A modern, two-story addition adds depth to the property and houses a stunning Smallbone kitchen with exposed wooden beams, heated floors, dual ovens, and dual dishwashers, as well as a 13' x 28' gymnasium that can be used as a basketball court, workout room, yoga studio, or playroom. With five bedrooms, six-and-a-half bathrooms, an elevator, five gas-powered fireplaces, mahogany flooring, custom workmanship, and state-of-the-art mechanical systems, this home has it all.

112 Waverly Place
Prior to its conversion to a single-family townhouse, 112 Waverly Place was built as a theater; appropriately enough, it attracted dramatic types over the years. The listing mentioned that acclaimed playwright Lorraine Hansberry was a past resident, and the New York Post touted former couple Johnny Depp and Kate Moss’ residency in the mid-1990s. It entered contract with a $13.5 million asking price in November 2023, and public records indicate that the sale has just closed.

Oscar-nominated actor Kirsten Dunst is based on the West Coast now, but bought a Soho penthouse for $3 million in 2007 and sold it for $4.4 million in 2018. When the New York Post announced those buyers have listed it, it noted that the building has long been a hot spot for celebrities – Jean-Michel Basquiat was among the artists who worked there in the 1970s, and the residential conversion attracted the likes of director Gus Van Sant, musician Michael Stipe, and actors Casey Affleck and Joaquin Phoenix.

Acclaimed architect Morris Adjmi’s extensive, context-sensitive credentials include The Huron in Greenpoint, Front & York in DUMBO, Sterling Mason in Tribeca, The Grand Mulberry in Nolita, and No.45e7 in the East Village, to name but a few. It appears his personal taste also extends to the historic – when the New York Post announced his purchase of a Brooklyn townhouse dating back to the early 1880s, he said in a statement, “I look forward to reimagining this incredible property within the context of historic Fort Greene.”
