You can now live like iconic fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld by buying his former German villa, where he lived between 1991 and 1998. The property, named Villa Jako in honor of Lagerfeld’s longtime partner Jacques de Bascher, was originally built in the 1920s for the shipping magnate Herrmann Witte, according to Town & Country. The 40,000-square-foot home features a grand facade with multiple columns, a massive living room that stretches the entire length of the property, a first-floor gallery that is also a library, and a gorgeous garden and terrace that has a view of the River Elbe. Lagerfeld sold the property in 1998, but the current owner kept some of his interior design elements. The property is listed at more than $11 million.
