A piece of New York pop culture history is off the market.

A Lenox Hill townhouse designed by renowned mid-century architect Paul Rudolph and known for glamorous parties attended by Andy Warhol, Liza Minnelli and Bianca Jagger, just sold for $18 million to an anonymous buyer. It was one of only three Manhattan townhouses designed by Rudolph.

Known as the “Halston House” for its previous owner, the fashion designer Halston, 101 East 63rd Street was originally listed by Cayman Islands-based owner “Cryden Corporation” for $40 million in 2015. At the time, the New York Post reported that art dealer Jeffrey Deitch was “angling” to buy the property. Clearly, that deal did work out, and the following year the price was chopped to $28 million.

The building is a four-bedroom, five-bathroom converted carriage house with a modernist glass facade. The main living room, where Halston’s famous parties were held, has 32-foot high ceilings.

In 1990, Halston sold the house to German celebrity photographer Gunter Sachs and Fiat’s Gianni Agnelli. After Sach’s death in 2011 the house was listed for $38.5 million, but never found a buyer.

The identity of the most recent buyer isn’t known; they used an anonymous LLC to purchase the house. The buyer’s broker was Adam Modlin at the Modlin Group.

The seller’s brokers were Howard Morrel and Leslie Hirsch at Engel & Volkers.
