'Breakfast at Tiffany's' home goes on market

The home used for the set of the movie "Breakfast at Tiffany's" recently went on the market.

The home used for the set of the movie "Breakfast at Tiffany's" recently went on the market.

The popular 1961 film "Breakfast at Tiffany's" is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, and the home that the movie's lead character lived in is now on the market.

The town house at 169 East 71st Street where the movie's character Holly Golightly hosted all of her cocktail parties is on the market in New York City for $5.85 million.

The four-story estate no longer boasts many of the original trimmings that were featured in the film, but is still recognized as a historic home in a landmark district. The property is separated into two duplex apartments, but Bacanovic stated that it could easily be converted into a single-family home. Whoever moves in will be able to unpack moving boxes and furnish a top apartment, featuring two bedrooms with en-suite baths and three fireplaces, and a lower apartment that has two bedrooms, two fireplaces, a solarium and large backyard.

The home is now owned by Peter Bacanovic, who purchased it in 2000 for $1.88 million. Despite Bacanovic's assertions that the film was shot in the home, movie websites say only the exterior of the townhouse was in the film and the other scenes were shot on the sets of Hollywood studios, according to the New York Post.

The movie "Breakfast at Tiffany's" won two Oscars and 11 other awards, according to IMDB. In addition to Audrey Hepburn, it featured George Peppard, Patricia Neal and Buddy Ebsen.
