Andy Warhol’s 2 New York Townhouses Go Up For Sale



 





   FOR SALE! 

The high price for being a  fabulous hot tranny mess! 

Andy Warhol’s  Upper East Side (New York City)
townhouse went up  for sale  for  $38 MILLION!

Nestled within the center of New York City’s fashionable Carnegie Hill, this home has everything you would come to expect in a fully renovated and lovingly restored townhouse. Gorgeous woodwork and classic original details convey elegance and charm, while the upgraded mechanicals, plumbing, heating, A/C, and new appliances offer every modern convenience.

According to NYMAG, former Viacom head Tom Freston  is selling his 4 bedroom Upper East Side townhouse, which also happens to be the house that Andy Warhol lived in from 1974 to 1987. Of course, you’re not likely to find any stray Basquiat doodles (or, you know, ‘ludes) from back in the day lying around. Freston renovated the hell out of the place, adding a luxurious rooftop terrace, four bedrooms, a library, chef’s kitchen, staff suite, gym, and seven wood-burning fireplaces, and the only real sign that Andy ever lived there is the little red plaque on the front of the house, “Andy Warhol: 1928-1987”  – 

57 E 66th street –  The cool vibes and the amenities will set you back a mere $38.5 million, which if you think about it is only half of what someone paid for Warhol’s Car Crash just last year. (Taxes  are $6000 a month!)

Warhol paid  $300,000 for the house in 1974.

ALSO FOR SALE, his townhouse at http://www.nytimes.com/2008/03/30/realestate/30deal1.html?_r=1&ex=1207454400&en=99576d428f9aaecf&ei=5070&emc=eta1&oref=slogin. This one is only  $6  million.
Warhol lived here from 1959 – 1974. The asking price is $5.99 million. The house has ornate wood moldings and paneling, and original mantels. But it is not as large as many Upper East Side town houses, and fronts on Lexington Avenue rather than a quieter side street. ( It is 48 feet deep on a 62-foot lot — while most town house lots on side streets are about 100 feet deep — and has just over 3,000 square feet, according to city tax records.)
