I WANNA live there Wednesday # 69 - New York

I WANNA live there Wednesday 

WELCOME TO I WANNA LIVE THERE WEDNESDAY -
PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A SERIES ON REAL ESTATE FOR SALE - MOSTLY IN MY HOME TOWN OF MONTREAL - WITH LOTS OF VISITS HERE AND THERE TO SEE WHAT ELSE IS OUT THERE - SOMETIMES IN N.Y. OR NEW ORLEANS - OR PARIS - OR............ANYWHERE ACTUALLY!
I CONCENTRATE ( FOR THE MOST PART ) ON HERITAGE HOMES - HISTORICAL BUILDINGS WITH DETAILED ARCHITECTURE.
SINCE THIS IS A SERIES ON THE HOUSE ITSELF - AND NOT THE WAY PEOPLE FURNISH THEM - KINDLY KEEP THAT IN MIND WHEN LEAVING COMMENTS -I WOULD NOT WANT A HOME OWNER TO COME ACROSS THEIR HOME ON MY BLOG AND READ UNKIND THINGS ABOUT IT ( I WAS ONCE CONTACTED WITH THANKS FOR SHOWCASING SOMEONE'S HOME - SO IT'S POSSIBLE )  IF YOU'RE INTO HOMES WITH A HISTORY THIS IS A SERIES YOU JUST MAY ENJOY - THANKS SO MUCH FOR VISITING THEM WITH ME

Not that many photos - but I don't know if my heart could have stood more than they show - 
This is simply gorgeous - 














This next photo leaves me with my mouth resting on the keyboard - seriously seriously in love with this room - the fireplace - the few pops of glamour - the windows - the trunk at the foot of the bed and the
white casual bedding - it's so magical in a very UNcontrived way, right?





And if the building looks just a tiny bit familiar - it's because it's where Miss Holly Golightly lived
This is the townhouse they used for the frontage in Breakfast at Tiffany's !

And now it's where I WANNA live too !!!

(I want to wake up in the city that never sleeps)

And I love happy endings almost as much as I love historical houses

Have a wonderful Wednesday everybody !!!

  2. What a GREAT house, Suzan! I sometimes miss the hustle and bustle of a city..except for the traffic-that drove me nuts. But it is fun to see that particular place and connect it to an icon like Audrey Hepburn. I loved that film. Have a great Wednesday- working from home here today- xo Diana

  3. Having that solarium attached to the back of my house would solve all my problems.

  4. Wow it had me hooked at the outside of the house. What character and beauty. Love this one and I think if I lived in New York this is the way to do it. Beautiful.

  5. This is a jaw dropper. The outside alone grabbed me and just sucked me right in like a vacuum, LOL. Breakfast at Tiffany is the only other thing I needed to hear, besides that gorgeous fireplace. When do we leave, for us it would take an hour without rush hour so we can meet you there and while we wait have a cocktail!

  6. When I began reading your post, I thought "even if the place is amazing, I wouldn't live in NYC"... And then, Holly's building? where she lived with Cat? And her amazing dresses/hats/shades? I SO WANNA LIVE THERE!!! Except I'll have Cats rather than Cat!

    You know who went with his profits from making movies and bought real estate in New York? Daniel Radcliffe from the Harry Potter series!!!! He went and bought several places to invest in. Smart kid!!!!

    I wonder if I told him how cool he is, if he would buy me this place...When it came available again...Of course? LOL!!!!!
