Late Fashion Icon André Leon Talley’s Longtime White Plains Dwelling Is Up for Sale

The Westchester County home of the late André Leon Talley is now for sale asking $1,250,000. The fashion icon, who passed in January 2022, became Vogue’s first Black creative director in 1988.

Talley, who was a larger-than-life figure often wearing one of his capes, lived in the White Plains home from 2004 until his passing. This is the first time since his death that the White Plains property is on the market. Interestingly enough, the endearing dwelling is currently owned in an LLC created by fellow fashion icon Diane von Furstenberg.

The circa-1854 Colonial-style home is full of character, just like its former owner. Beyond the bright red door, 3,600 square feet await. The residence boasts large windows, fireplaces, wide plank hardwood floors, and a beamed living room ceiling. The spacious primary bedroom has its own fireplace, ensuite bath, and of course, an impressive closet space. There are a total of four bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms.

Not far from the fashion capital that is NYC, the property is a peaceful escape with over an acre of land. The visionary not only made his mark on the entire fashion world, but now on White Plains, too—his street name has been changed to André Leon Talley Way.

Earlier this year, Christie’s auctioned off the icon’s belongings—from capes to jewelry and handbags—for much more than their estimated value. His collection earned more than $3.5 million, according to NPRGiven that Talley’s personal belongings sold for more than anticipated, perhaps his longtime home is destined to as well.

Bonnie Stein of Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty holds the one-in-a-lifetime listing.
