Wanna Be Audrey? The Breakfast At Tiffany's House Goes On Sale And It Is Beaut

Holly Golightly's Upper East Side townhouse is on the market, but you'll need LOTS of change to throw to buy it...

It's a film that will never go out of style and one that we always dreamt we'd live out our own lives like. Yep, we're talking about Breakfast At Tiffany's; the 1961 romantic comedy that starred the stunning Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly.  

Playing the part of a wealthy, albeit naïve, society girl - which has since become Hepburn's most iconic and memorable role - we've spent hours swooning over her gorgeous clothes, sparking jewels (it's called Breakfast At Tiffany's, after all...) and, of course, her beautiful Upper East Side apartment that, for a long time, led us to believe that owning 2,000 sq foot abode in one of the world's most glittering cities was the norm. Then, sadly, we realised we can barely afford council tax let alone prime real estate...

However, if you have some serious change to throw it may interest you to know that the very building where Holly met her match in her neighbour and subsequent love-interest Paul Varjak is now on the market. And, as you'd expect, the interior has changed significantly since the flick was filmed...

With a cool asking price of, you know, a casual $8 million (or around £5 million if you prefer), you can now get your hands on a location of cinematic history. The pad, which has now renovated into a chic, four-bedroom townhouse, boasts a whopping 3,800-square-feet and features high ceilings, period touches and gorgeous wood-burning fireplaces. 

It's not the first time the infamous house has found it's way onto the housing market; just three years ago in 2011 it sold for $5.58 million and previously, in 2000, it was bought for a relatively more affordable (but still very out of our league) $1.88 million. Talk about a growth in profits, huh? 

We've got our hands on the estate agent photographs of the home as it is now to show you just how much it's changed since Holly Golightly walked it's halls in her iconic LBD, oversized sunnies and wide brimmed hat. 

Oh, what we wouldn't give to step into her stylish shoes for day...

The Master Bedroom
With it's floor-to-ceiling windows, just imagine how dreamy it would be to wake up to this everyday.

The Second Bedroom
Bedroom-meets-library in this shelving-heavy room. We're in organisational heaven...

The Third-Floor Living Room
Yep, there's more than one...

The Conservatory
Just thinking of the parties we could throw in this glass-roofed back room that leads directly into a pretty, private garden makes us pine.

A girl can dream...
