Brownstone Made Famous in Breakfast at Tiffany's Sells

New, 15 comments


The Upper East Side townhouse where fictional party girl Holly Golightly hosted her wild shindigs in Breakfast at Tiffany's has changed hands for $7.4 million. This is the third time that the house, located on East 71st Street between Third and Lexington avenues, has sold since 2008, and the new owners, as well as the last, are hidden behind LLCs. the Observer reports that the house has not been renovated since the 1990s, which is clearly why it sold for $2.6 million less than its original $10 million asking price. The seller's renovation plans evidently did not pan out, and the broker told the Observer that it was "far too small for them." It's currently configured as two duplex units, and there's a solarium, private backyard, and four fireplaces. The new owners will likely flip it, but don't worry, it's in a historic district, so that famous facade will remain.
