#DESIGN: ANDY WARHOLD’S NYC TOWNHOUSE FOR SALE
Andy Warhol's former 3,072-square-foot townhouse, located on Lexington Ave in New York, has just gone on the market for $5.795 million USD (approx. £3.75 million). The artist originally bought the house for $60,000 USD back in 1959 and lived there for 15 years, sharing the Carnegie Hill-area home with his mother.
During this period the iconic pop artist created some of his most famous work, including the colorful renditions of Campbell’s soup cans, dollar bills and comic strips.
The main floor was used as his painting studio, while upstairs there are four bedrooms (each with wood-burning fireplaces) and 4.5 bathrooms. Since Warhol lived there the home has passed through two different owners and has undergone a small restoration which included new interior finishes, updated fixtures and the addition of a garden-level kitchen.
