Carrie's Sex and the City house could be yours for $9.65million (fabulous wardrobe and Mr Big not included)

It is one of Manhattan's most famous homes.

64 Perry Street shall forever more be known as Carrie Bradshaw's home – or at least one of the buildings that housed the Sex and the City heroine's apartment.

Audiences watched the column-writing, power-man-dating fashion authority stride down the home's stoop in impossibly high heels, toting designer bags and flicking her blonde tresses in the New York sunshine.

Its brownstone steps are said to be the setting of Carrie's date kisses in the first three seasons of the hit show, according to DNA.

Now, the romantically recognisable building could be yours – for a cool $9.65 million.

The four-storey townhouse has ten rooms and six fireplaces – and clocks in at an impressive 4,100-square-foot.

Sotheby's describes the 19C landmark
as 'waiting to be restored to its original grandeur' – real estate
speak, we imagine, for property that is in need of renovation.

It has been bought and sold several times in recent
years, each time yielding a higher price.

Built in 1866, the home was last sold last November for $9 million, reports DNA.

The high ceilings are ornate, with
cornices finished in gold paint and the floors are parque wood – though
the estate agents hint at the property needing some work.

Whether the pile has accrued a further $650,000 in just four months is for the market to tell.

Though only used for a backdrop for the show, it has become a stop on many a Sex and the City fan's tour of the area.

Its neighbour, number 66, is also used in the Sarah Jessica Parker series – Carrie enters and exits its dark wood doors – and is a regular haunt of a camera-laden tourist.

Other New York addresses made (more) famous by the show include the nearby Magnolia Bakery at 401 Bleecker Street and Balthazar restaurant at 80 Spring Street.

The protagonist was filmed on the steps of the home for the first three seasons of the hit show.

According to the New York Times, filming then moved just a door away to number 64, a more ornate and well-kept residence.

The Villager reports that, in 2008, a board of community residents successful won a campaign to stop Sex and the City tour buses from stopping at the home's stoop on its popular sightseeing trips.
