Rag & Home: Marcus Wainwright's New $6.75 Million Brooklyn Mansion

Feb 19 2013 - 10:36am

Turns out being the cofounder of one of the industry's coolest brands will buy you a whole lot of house. Rag & Bone's Marcus Wainwright and his wife, model Glenna Neece, are getting ready to move into a triplex in Brooklyn's Cobble Hill Historic District. The Greek revival mansion — which Curbed called [1] the "Blogger's Brooklyn Dream House" — was originally built in 1844 and went through a top-to-bottom renovation between 2007 and 2010, when it was originally listed for $7 million. (Wainwright and Neece paid $6.75 million, according to the sales record [2].)

The freestanding home is one of three in its neighborhood that sits on a double lot, and has enough parking space for four cars. It actually features three separate dwellings: in addition to the main home, there are two rental units with separate entrances that bring in an estimated $56,400 a year.

But that's not the only thing that makes the home so attractive. It has garden space on all four sides, an art studio, plus details like mahogany floors, a roof-deck, and a patio off the kitchen paved in bluestone. A look at the home here in the gallery.
