An Upper East Side mansion once owned by fashion icon Gianni Versace is now on the market for $70 million.

The spacious, six-floor limestone mansion — located at 5 East 64th Street, between Fifth and Madison avenues — boasts seventeen rooms, over 14,000 interior square feet, and about 3,000 square feet of outdoor space.

Versace purchased the building in 1995 for $7.5 million and redesigned the entire interior.
