“If I could find a real-life place that made me feel like Tiffany’s, then I’d buy some furniture and give the cat a name”.Holly Golightly
The apartament was listed, years ago, for the price of $5.85 million. But somethings changed since the house was divided into two duplexes and it was converted in a four-bedroom, five-bathroom single-family duplex apartment with a lot of space and confortable living spaces. It has also a greenhouse.
In terms of location this expensive home is located in a really well-known and in Manhattan’s affluent NYC’s Upper, and even without the green-and-white striped awnings featured in the movies, it’s still the perfect home for the talk of the town.
It was sold to its current owner in 2012 by Peter Bacanovic, the former Merrill Lynch broker who served five months in jail for aiding his client Martha Stewart in insider trading in 2004.
Although it is usually said that the East 71st Street brownstone was only used for external shots, the owner, Mr Bacanovic, told the New York Times that some scenes were actually shot inside, with cameras perched outside, and that the party scene which Holly hosts wearing a dress made from a bed sheet, took place in his living room.
This house in on the tourist tour of the Upper East Side.
It was built in 1910 and suffered two major renovations since the film was made, once in the mid-80s and again in the late-90s. Still, the exterior remains largely untouched has you can see by the doors.
