The deal reportedly includes a number of artworks as well as cash.

Various media sources have chipped in on their take of the deal, with Page Six reporting that one source said “It will need a lot of work. It's currently set up as a glorified one-bedroom bachelor pad with a pool.”

The website adds that this is just the latest in a string of multi-million dollar real estate deals involving Gagosian. Previously, in 2011, Gagosian snapped up the Harkness Mansion for $36.5 million from Christopher Flowers, who himself had bought the property for $53 million in 2006.

With regards to his latest deal, Gagosian bought the Lenox Hill Mansion way back in 1988, 6SQFT reported. The old carriage house that belonged to a late 19th century millionaire was then transformed into a single-family home called “House for a Bachelor”. 6SQFT adds that Gagosian hired renowned architect Francois de Menil to renovate the home, which houses some of the art dealer's most famous multi-million dollar artworks, including pieces by Picasso, Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.
