An extravagant mansion that just hit the market in New York City comes complete with a laundry list of famous former residents, including the artist Marc Chagall, and the late King of Pop himself.

The Upper East Side townhouse was listed for $39 million dollars by its latest well-known resident, the billionaire Marc Lasry. The six-story single-family property boasts seven bedrooms, not including the "staff" quarters, and brims with well-preserved historical features.

The house was built in 1898 upon the commission of the celebrated architect Alexander Welch, and was purchased by a former law partner of President Grover Cleveland. Today, its original details remain largely intact, including ten wood-burning fireplaces, oak wood floors, and "windows of stained and leaded glass and gilt work," according to the listing.

In addition, there is a garden, a patio, several balconies, and a roof deck. Limestone quoins and a bowed portico distinguish the facade. The building is just steps from the East side of Central Park.
