Many remember the iconic brownstone stoop where a shopping bag–swaddled Carrie Bradshaw would ponder Big's questionable intentions, hail nearby cabs, and bid her many dates goodnight in Sex and the City. But according to PopSugar, the grandiose staircase leads to a much more opulent apartment than the one featured on the show.
For obvious reasons, the show's production crew chose to feature the exterior of the Italianate-style townhouse at 64 Perry Street for the first four seasons of the show, which wrapped up indefinitely in 2004 (save the two movies). While the stoop will forever represent Carrie and her enviable New York City lifestyle, the 4000-square-foot apartment inside would undoubtedly stray far beyond a columnist's price range (as would her affinity for designer shoes, but I digress).
Designed by architect Robert Mook, the five-bedroom, three-bathroom home features herringbone wood floors, six full fireplaces, a winding entryway staircase, and palatial gold detailing encircling the ornate crown molding. With gold chandeliers hang from the detailed ceilings and matching sconces flank each entryway, the West Village apartment was last sold to a buyer who chose to remain anonymous in 2012 for a cool $9.65 million.
