Breakfast at Tiffany's Brownstone Up for Sale

23 December 2011

The home where Holly Golightly resided in the film, Breakfast at Tiffany's went up for sale in December for $6 million dollars. It is one of New York's most historic and romantic landmarks.

The four-floor townhouse is currently divided into two duplexes, but could easily be converted into a ten bedroom family home. Located on the Upper East Side, it comes with a glass enclosed solarium, backyard, several fireplaces and a library.

To build on the interesting back story on the house, it was previously owned by a one Peter Bacanovic, a former Merrill Lynch broker who got caught up in the Martha Stewart insider trading case and did some time in the pen. He purchased the home in 2000 for $1.88 million.

As The New York Times reports, the house no longer features the green and white striped window awnings spotted in the movie. But many of its landmarks remain in place. The top apartment features two bedrooms with en-suite baths and three fireplaces. Downstairs, a lower apartment features two bedrooms, two fireplaces, a solarium and a large backyard.
