Andy Warhol’s NYC Townhouse is Up for Sale

Originally purchased by the pop art icon for a mere $60,000 USD back in 1959, Andy Warhol‘s former New York City townhouse is currently up for sale. Located on Lexington Avenue in the Carnegie Hill neighborhood of the Big Apple’s Upper East Side, the spacious 3,072 sq ft house served as Warhol’s home and studio for 15 years and saw the creation of a number of his most famous pieces – including the the initial rendition of Campbell’s Soup Cans (1962). Home to four bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths, the space has seen ownership from two different parties since Warhol moved from the residence and, accordingly, has undergone a series of small restorations and updates that includes the addition of a brand new garden-level kitchen. The asking price for this piece of history is currently set at $5.795 million USD.
