The former home of late fashion designer Kate Spade has been listed with an asking price of $6.35 million.

The Lenox Hill co-op was purchased by Spade and her husband and business partner, Andy Spade, in 1999, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Spanning about 3,000 square feet, it has three bedrooms, a corner library and views of Park Avenue. The listing agent, Randall Gianopulos of Sotheby’s International, declined to comment.

Famed for her luxury handbags and a fun, playful aesthetic, Spade earned global success with the eponymous brand she founded in 1993. She severed ties with her company in 2007, and later launched a new brand, Frances Valentine, naming it after her daughter, Frances Beatrix.
