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
