Before all the Andy Warhol interest decamps for the Lower East Side's future Andy Warhol museum, one more moment (or 15) for the Warhol house at 1342 Lexington Avenue. Warhol used to own the house and lived there between 1959 and 1974, with his mother, 25 cats, and a number of the objects (yep, we're talking about Campbell's Soup cans, among other things) he included in some of his most famous paintings. The townhouse's current owners listed it in April for $5.795 million. The place has sold for $5.5 million, the Daily News reports.
The sellers purchased the house for $3.5 million in 2011 and spent another $1 million on the home's renovation?a far cry from the $60,000 Warhol spent on the place back in 1959.
