Since May, the owners of the Manhattan brownstone featured in the enduring romcom Breakfast at Tiffany's have been trying turn a sizable profit, listing the iconic house for $10M—$4M over what they paid for in 2012. Well, that ain't workin', so in August the 3,800-square-foot townhouse went up for sale at a "discounted" price of $8M. The house, which served as the backdrop for exterior shots in the film, comes with four bedrooms, five bathrooms, a library, and an enclosed greenhouse across an upper and lower duplex—but perhaps more importantly, it still has the original olive green doors that Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard famously stood afore. Maybe some wealthy die-hard fans will finally come forward after this 20 percent price cut, as long as they can deal with the consequences of the house (and its storied stoop) being a tourist must-see.
