Breakfast At Tiffanys House

The beautiful townhouse once graced by the fictional Holly Golightly, Truman Capote's chic socialite in the novel "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and famously played by Audrey Hepburn, has been sold for $5.97 million dollars.

Costalea Holdings Limited snatched up the famous duplex residence, which boasts five fireplaces, a solarium, and a beautiful staircase.

Back in December, owner Peter Bacanovic, who rose to rather undesirable prominence for his shady role in the Martha Stewart insider-trading scandal, decided to sell the Upper East Side home, seeking a "change" with the asking price of $5.85 million.

The broker purchased the 169 East 71st Street home for $1.8 million in 2000.

Fans of the film recently celebrated its 50th anniversary in October, memorializing Hepburn's renowned portrayal of a free-spirited socialite living in New York
