Carrie Bradshaw may be fictional, but her apartment is as real as it comes, and — like the “Sex and the City” character’s shoe collection — it’s fabulous.
But is it as fabulous as the apartment owned by Sarah Jessica Parker, the actress who plays Carrie?
Let’s compare the two.
On “Sex and the City,” Carrie was renting a 1-bedroom apartment on the Upper East Side. In reality, the building used for exterior shots of her apartment is a townhome in the West Village. The townhouse was on the market last year for $9.65 million, which is pretty pricey, but it doesn’t hold a candle to SJP’s $24.95 million townhouse, which is on the market now. Sorry, Carrie.
Winner: Parker’s apartment.
In one corner we have the “Sex and the City” townhome, weighing in at 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 3,938 square feet of living space.
In the other corner of the ring, Parker’s townhome has 5 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms and measures 5,178 square feet.
Winner: SJP for the prize, again.
The first thing going for the ‘SATC’ townhome is its Hollywood factor — any home used for a film or TV show ups the interest. Other appealing factors: a spot on a “coveted” tree-lined street surrounded by other historic homes, a south-facing garden, herringbone floors, 6 fireplaces and architect Robert Mook, who designed the home in 1866. Double parlors at the front have 12-foot-plus ceilings and ornate, gold moldings.
Parker’s townhouse is just as glamorous in its Greenwich Village location. The home also boasts double parlors with 12-foot ceilings and a south-facing garden and terrace, as well as 7 fireplaces. The house is also four stories with a full-floor master suite.
Winner: We’re going to have to go with “Sex and the City” townhome purely for the gold moldings and framed mirrors. Glamorous indeed.
It’s hard to tell here — Parker’s home is clearly the winner in size and price, but the “Sex and the City” townhome already sold — and for almost at its asking price. Final result? We’ll call it a tie!
