World-famous art figure Larry Gagosian recently closed on the Harkness Mansion at 4 E. 75th Street in New York City for $36.5 million. As owner of the global Gagosian Gallery chain, the illustrious art dealer will likely deck out the 20,000-square-foot townhouse with incredible pieces.
The high-profile property has an impressive history of ownership. The stunning home set Gagosian back $16.5 million more than its most recent previous owner, equity titan J. Christopher Flowers, when he bought it back in 2006. Before that, it was owned by banking heir Jacqui Safra, who used to produce Woody Allen films with his girlfriend, Jean Doumanian. Safra paid a record price for the property at $53 million, which still remains the highest price.
