It took four years to sell, what used to be one of Manhattan’s most celebrated, glamorous, and stylish houses, when it was owned by designer Halston during the Disco and Studio 54 era, and frequented by Andy Warhol, Liza Minnelli, and Bianca Jagger. It was then purchased by artist and collector Gunter Sachs, and was up for sale when he died in 2011, but has failed to find a buyer until this week. Halston’s townhouse, located at 101 East 63rd Street, and nicknamed “101” (just like his fragrance), was designed by Paul Rudolph in his signature space-age, minimalist style, and completed in 1974. When owned by Halston (below), the house was fitted with wall-to-wall grey carpeting and its image came to illustrate the concept of Manhattan's bachelor pad. Perhaps now, that it was purchased by Jeffrey Deitch, former Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, it will reinvent its glow.
