The Manhattan townhouse made famous by the iconic Audrey Hepburn flick Breakfast at Tiffany's came up for sale in December, after 11 long years under the crooked thumb of former Merrill Lynch broker Peter E. Bacanovic, who bought the place for $1.8M in 2000. Well, the 15-foot-wide Upper East Side townhouse has just sold for $6M, a smidge above the $5.85M ask. According to the New York Observer, the buyer is Costalea Holdings Limited, whose plans for the building's two duplexes are yet unknown. And while the house served as the backdrop for the movie's exterior shots, most scenes were shot on a sound stage. (That would explain why Mr. Yunioshi's top-floor artist's atelier is nowhere to be found!) Curbed NY has one last look—for now, that is—of the floorplan and interiors.
