ess than a month after hitting the market, a potential buyer has already entered into contract on the $9.65 million West Village townhouse that played a leading role on “Sex and the City.”
And as much as we would love to know who this real life Mr. or Mrs. Big is, the person’s identity is still unknown.
Perhaps it is one of the bidders who lost out on the property when it was up for sale in November 2011 and sold for $9 million—six per cent more than the list price, after just 27 days on the market.
But Carrie Bradshaw’s “Sex and the City” pad isn’t just famous for appearing on HBO. The 4,100-square-foot townhouse on Perry Street was also used in the Woody Allen film “Alice.”
And other than Carrie calling the place home, only two real life families have lived in the townhouse since it was built in 1866.
And while there is no way that the Manolo Blahnik-loving sex columnist could have afforded her address in real life, whoever buys the famous digs will get to take advantage of its five bedrooms, three bathrooms, herringbone wood floors, a sweeping staircase, ornate crown moulding and six fireplaces with marble mantels. (Who needs that?)
Not to mention, the dozens of “Sex and the City” tour buses that pass by the property daily.
Not that you would mind occasionally being mistaken for Big or Carrie.
