Marina Abramovic Sells Soho Townhouse to Fashion Designer

New, 18 comments

Artist Marina Abramovic, the grandmother of performance art, has been all over the Soho real estate market lately. Last summer she sold a loft at 70 Grand Street for $3.2 million, and just last month she purchased a $2.65 million apartment in Soho's Urban Glass House. And in a deal that just hit public record yesterday, spotted by, she sold another piece of property: the pooltastic townhouse at 54 King Street. The buyer is fashion designer Riccardo Tisci, who is paying $3.063 million for the house. (It was asking $5.79 million in 2011.)

One reason the place might have sold at a discount is that it's currently configured as a two-family house, according to the most recent listing. How those two halves differ:

"This 21' wide property features a modern and minimalist-inspired lower half with high ceilings and loft-like rooms facing the back garden complete with a full-sized heated swimming pool and rare Japanese landscaping details. Limestone floors, a sleek kitchen and exquisite bathrooms are complemented by the floor to ceiling south-facing glass windows allowing for streaming natural light. The upper unit is comprised of living/dining/kitchen on one level, and bedrooms with a large private terrace on the other. That listing is now a bit dated, but the photos and floorplan are the most recent we have, so have a look in the gallery above.
