    Carrie Bradshaw’s NYC apartment is now for sale! The apartment that has become an unofficial New York City landmark and a must-see stop for many NYC tour buses has just hit the market for $9,650,000. Think Carrie could have swung those mortgage payments on her journalist’s salary? Think again.

    In the Sex and the City TV series, everyone’s favorite fashionista single gal lived in a rent-controlled Greenwich Village apartment. In reality, the famous front stoop is actually a five-bedroom, 4,000 square-foot home in the West Village. Located at 64 Perry Street, on one of the most coveted tree-lined blocks in the heart of the West Village landmark district, this spectacular, light-filled house sits on a deep lot with a large south-facing garden.

    Rich in original details, such as herringbone wood floors with exquisite inlaid borders, 6 fireplaces with carved marble mantels and beautifully proportioned rooms with ornate crown and ceiling moldings, the home is waiting to be restored to its original grandeur – a job perfect for a real life Mr. Big.

    Inhabited by only two families since construction in 1866, it was designed by architect Robert Mook, who also completed most of the other Italianate style townhouses on the block. A grand entry hall greets visitors on the parlor level with a sweeping staircase and a wide arched doorway leading to double parlors at the front and rear of the house, with 12 foot ceilings. No word on the closets.

    Sotheby’s holds the listing.

      3 bedrooms, 3 full and 2 partial bathrooms, 4,607 square feet

      Price

      $15,000 a month

      Media mogul Oprah Winfrey is looking to rent out her swank but never-lived-in Chicago pad for $15,000 a month. The fine folks at Curbed (via the Chicago Tribune) are reporting that Oprah is renting out the East Lake Shore Drive home that she purchased for $5,600,000 in 2006 and tried to unsuccessfully sell for $6,000,000 a couple of years later. She never ended up officially moving in, instead she set up camp in an ultra-posh duplex a few miles down the road. Now, it’s time for someone else (with deep pockets) to move on in.

      The luxury, 4,607 square foot home has amazing views from library, living room and master bedroom with 10 foot ceilings. The apartment’s formal spaces include an inner foyer, a grand foyer, living room, library and formal dining room. Other amenities include a solarium, butler’s pantry, wine room, gourmet custom kitchen, laundry room and office (or third bedroom). The en-suite guest  and large master suite come complete with his and hers baths. The unit also includes a 2 car garage.
