If you have a few million spare euros laying around, you can now live like Karl Lagerfeld—or at least the way he lived in the '90s.  Lagerfeld's former German villa, where he lived between 1991 and 1998, is going on sale. The property is named Villa Jako, in honor of Lagerfeld's longtime partner Jacques de Bascher, who died in 1989. As Women's Wear Daily reports, the villa is in Hamburg’s exclusive Blankenese district.

The three-bedroom house, originally named Villa Schüler, was built in the 1920s for shipping magnate Herrmann Witte.


It resembles a Roman villa, complete with a grand facade and multiple columns.

The 12,000-square-meter hilltop villa also features a grand living room that spans the entire length of the property.


There's also a first-floor gallery that serves as a library.

Its round-arched glass doorways open directly onto the garden and terrace, leading to gorgeous views of the River Elbe.


While Lagerfeld sold the property in 1998, the current owner kept some of his interior design elements, according to the listing broker, Engel & Völkers.


No word on exactly which elements were kept, but the gold leaf-painted ceilings and the three bedrooms, which each feature an en-suite bathroom and dressing room, are a marvel.


Interested? The property will set you back a cool 10 million euros, which is over $11 million or roughly P618 million.
