Remember the romantic brownstone where Carrie Bradshaw lived on in her Sex and the City single-gal days? While it was supposedly a small rent-controlled Greenwich Village apartment, the brownstone facade used for filming actually contained a much grander apartment — which has now hit the market for a whopping $9.65 million. I'm quite sure Carrie's journalist dollars wouldn't have been able to purchase this pretty five-bedroom, three-bath, 4,000+-square-foot home.
According to the Sotheby's listing:
Steeped in history and romance, 64 Perry Street is located on one of the most coveted tree-lined blocks in the heart of the West Village landmark district. This spectacular 20'x48'+/- light-filled house, on a deep lot with a large south-facing garden, is ideally surrounded by other historic townhome gardens & mature trees. Rich in original details, such as herringbone wood floors with exquisite inlaid borders, 6 fireplaces with carved marble mantels, & beautifully proportioned rooms with ornate crown & ceiling moldings, the home is waiting to be restored to its original grandeur. 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'+/- ceilings. First showings Tuesday, March 6th.
