Mystery Buyer Purchases ’Sex and the City’ Home for $9.85 Million
The New York Observer reported this week that the "Sex and the City" townhouse -- the building that Carrie Bradshaw called home during the show’s first three seasons -- was sold to a mystery buyer for $9.85 million, according to city records.
The iconic 5-bedroom home is located at 64 Perry Street and was initially listed for $9.65 in early March by Sotheby’s brokers Joshua Wesoky and Steve Dawson. The owners and the sellers, however, have been extremely private about the transaction and neither have revealed their identities.
Perry Street is located in Manhattan’s West Village.
The townhouse features gorgeous crown and ceiling moldings, herringbone wood floors and six fireplaces with carved marble mantels, the Observer points out.
The newspaper also notes that the home, which has three bathrooms, has been a hot item lately. It first sold for $9 million, which was six percent higher than the list price, after only being on the market for a few days in November of last year. It was then re-listed for $650,000 more this March but it ended up selling for a whopping $9.85 million.
In addition to appearing in "Sex in the City" the home has also starred in Wood Allen’s "Alice." Project Runway mentor Tim Gunn also lived in the upstairs apartment for 16 years and documentary filmmaker Wheaton Galentine and Harold Eliot Leeds, who designed the Paris Theater and Martha Graham’s dance studio, also called the stunning building home.
