Engel & Völkers has successfully brokered the former residence of the US designer Roy Halston in Manhattan for 18 million US dollars (approx. 15.9 million euros). The townhouse is located on the Upper East Side and was designed in 1966 by the world-famous architect Paul Rudolph. The prominent American fashion designer Halston purchased the property in 1974 and turned it into a venue for legendary parties attended by New York’s high society. Stars from the worlds of film, art and music were frequent guests, including Andy Warhol and Liza Minnelli. The Halston House, as it is known, was acquired by the German photographer and art collector Gunter Sachs in 1990. He filled it with portraits of its famous visitors, including a Warhol painting of Brigitte Bardot, his third wife.
