Please view the property video: https://vimeo.com (212) 661-5932Password "Halston" On a quiet, tree-lined street, camouflaged among pre-war houses is an icon of modernism in steel and smoked glass: 101 East 63rd Street. Designed by famed architect Paul Rudolph in 1968, the building is both a triumph of mid-century architecture and an important piece of social history. This is the story of a famous house that captured the zeitgeist of the 1970's, known to the New York glitter set simply as '101.' When you enter the house, you are immediately confronted by its history. The foyer is lined with iconic photographs, many of which were taken by Andy Warhol inside of the house. Owned by designer to the stars, Halston, and located blocks from Studio 54, '101' was where the beautiful partied before and after visiting the legendary club (212) 661-5932was designed by Rudolph in 1967 for lawyer Alexander Hirsch. Rudolph had recently retired as dean of the Yale School of Art and Architecture and this was his first foray into the New York market. At nearly 9,000 square feet with 5 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, 3 living areas, an elevator, a 3 story greenhouse, a curb cut garage, 2 kitchens, and a 1,400 square-foot terrace, it was a grand debut. Halston bought the house in 1974, at the peak of his fame. Halston's house quickly became the epicenter of 70's star culture. A party at '101' became known in the vernacular of the time as a "Halston Happening". Liza Minnelli and Bianca Jagger were both off and on residents of the top-floor suite, which included a kitchen, a living room with a bar, a bedroom with a full bathroom, and the huge terrace (212) 661-5932Halston retired from the public eye in 1984, and his house became a perfectly contained and quiet sanctuary. A few months before his death in 1990, he sold his townhouse to German photographer Gunter Sachs. Sachs, a modern art collector with a penchant for Andy Warhol, was a natural successor. Today, this extraordinary townhouse awaits the next chapter in its vibrant history.
