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.
