Carrie Bradshaw's apartment in Sex and the City might as well be the fifth main character. While it was supposedly a small rent-controlled Greenwich Village apartment, the brownstone facade used for filming actually contained a much grander apartment — which hit the market a while back for a whopping $9.65 million. We're pretty sure Carrie's columnist salary wouldn't have been able to purchase the stunning five-bedroom, three-bath, 4,000+-square-foot home, but that's part of the fantasy, right?
The original details in the brownstone on 64 Perry Street are breathtaking — herringbone wood floors with inlaid borders, six fireplaces with carved marble mantels, and rooms with ornate crown and ceiling moldings are some of the highlights. The most remarkable news? The home had only been inhabited by two families since construction in 1866 when it was last listed. It was designed by architect Robert Mook, who also completed most of the other Italianate-style townhouses on the block, and is nothing short of impressive. See for yourself!

A winding entry staircase leads to spacious, well-proportioned rooms — 11 in all.
The rooms are generously sized, and the overall square footage, topping out at over 4,000 square feet of interior space, is insanely large for New York.
