Now’s your chance to live like fashion royalty, as the opulent Upper East Side townhouse once owned by Gianni Versace is on the rental market for the first time, asking a whopping $120,000. The Italian designer bought the house at 5 East 64th Street for $7.5 million in 1995, just two years before he was murdered in Miami. It sold again for $30 million in 2005 to Swedish hedge fund manager Thomas Sandell, but it still retains many of the details left over from Versace’s renovation, including marble floors, massive chandeliers, and the painted living room ceiling.

The 35-foot-wide, limestone residence was built in 1901 and today has five bedrooms and 17 rooms total. It’s spread out over six stories (Versace added the top two) and 14,000 square feet and boasts an elevator and tree-lined garden. As the listing explains, “With the proportions of an embassy it was designed in the Italian manner with two large rooms on each floor as well as a rear balcony which runs the width of the house and overlooks the garden.”

The listing also calls out the luxurious floors, which “vary from marble to Austrian parquet to mosaic with classical motifs.” Though Versace’s design aesthetic was also over-the-top, he preferred bright colors and modern art, whereas Sandell seems to lean more towards animal prints, velvet, and gilding everywhere.

In addition to the giant master suite with sunken Jacuzzi tub, the house also offers a rooftop garden and a large skylight. The home is being rented fully furnished and is available beginning in mid-August.
