Carrie Bradshaw's 'Sex and the City' Townhouse on the Market for $8.5M

MANHATTAN — Carrie Bradshaw wannabes had better start saving their Manolo money. 

One of two Perry Street townhouses that served as the backdrop for Sarah Jessica Parker's "Sex and the City" character is on the market for $8.5 million, according to The Corcoran Group's website.

The 4,100-square-foot townhouse at 64 Perry St. boasts four floors, 10 rooms and six fireplaces, according to Corcoran. It was built in 1866 and has only been owned by two families. 

The "Sex and the City" protagonist kissed her dates on the steps of 64 Perry St. for the first three seasons of the show, "Project Runway" judge Tim Gunn, who lived in an apartment in the building for 16 years, told The New York Times

The next three seasons of the show were filmed in front of 66 Perry St. — supposedly Carrie's Upper East Side abode — which boasts a more ornate façade where tourists still have their photos snapped. 

West Village residents have complained that visitors to the "Bradshaw brownstone" have disrupted the calm street.

In July 2008, Community Board 2 successfully lobbied a company that offered "Sex and the City" bus tours to remove the house from their list of stops, according to The Villager.
