The Manhattan brownstone, where the main characters of the classic movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” lived, is having a hard time finding a buyer, as evidenced by a new $2 million price chop. In May, this year, iconic house has been listed for $10 million ($4 million over than what the owners paid for it in 2012), but didn’t find enough interested buyer. This townhouse at 169 East 71st Street on the Upper East Side of Manhattan which served as the backdrop for exterior shots in the movie, is to be converted into 4 bedroom, 5 bath a single family home that boasts 3,800 square feet which includes 4 floors, an enclosed greenhouse, and basement, with option to expand.
The upper duplex consists of a sunny living room with wood burning fireplace and sweeping staircase, powder room, dining room with a wood burning fireplace and a renovated kitchen with laundry. Upstairs are two bedroom suites each with its own renovated bath.
The garden duplex apartment with a separate entrance has a living room with a wood burning fireplace, kitchen and glass enclosed solarium with backyard perfect for entertaining. The upper level includes a front library/bedroom with wood burning fireplace and powder room and a rear large bedroom with wood burning fireplace and full bath.
The house still has the original olive green doors that Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard famously stood afore.
