"Breakfast At Tiffany's" Manhattan Apartment For Sale [GALLERY]
Live Like Holly Golightly At Her Brownstone Pad
Located on Manhattan's Upper East Side, and made famous by Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's, Holly Golightly's apartment is up for sale. Yes, if you would like to sit on a window ledge, strumming away and singing Moon River, then this is the apartment for you. So long as you have $5.85 million to lay down.
According to Forbes, the current owner of Miss Golightly's pad is Peter Bacanovic, a former Merrill Lynch broker embroiled in the Martha Stewart insider trading case. Bacanovic bought the property in 2000 for $6.58 million, meaning that at $5.85 million, the place is a steal.
The townhouse itself is split into two duplex apartments, with the upper duplex consisting of a sunny living room with wood-burning fireplace and sweeping staircase, powder room, renovated kitchen with laundry, two bedrooms with ensuite baths, plus a library.
The garden apartment below has a separate entrance with living room, full bath, kitchen and glass-enclosed solarium with a backyard. This garden apartment would be perfect to sublet if you're struggling to make those Upper East Side mortgage payments.
Nevertheless, if you do have some serious cash to throw around -- and are a massive fan of Breakfast at Tiffany's -- for $13.995 million you can also buy the brownstone house where Capote wrote the famous novella, and which has been on the market since November 2010 . Who wouldn't want a matching set?.
