64 Perry Street, New York, New York...

My real estate high is not over.  Did you know that Carrie Bradshaw's New York apartment is up for grabs!?!  I have to say it is quite the showcase!  Much, much different than what was actually filmed as the interior of Sex and the City.

Take a look at those herringbone floors!

You know I have been told that my celebrity look alike is Kristin Davis or better known for her role as Charlotte York.  In that case, I think I'll just pack my bags and make myself at home!

What was actually filmed was the exterior of the home which is located in West Village.  Although, we all know that Carrie lived in the Upper East Side.

Regardless of location, this house is stunning!  The price tag matches the glam at $9.65 million.  You can check out more details here. And just for fun, here's a quiz to see "Which SATC Character is Your Style Twin?"  
Here are my results...

Big surprise.

It's a Monster!

Hi, my name is Jessica, and I am a hypothetical decorator.  Shew!  I’m glad I got that one out.  Just for fun, here's a picture of one of my favorite designers, Mary McDonald, toasted at a party in 1979. The photo was taken by Remus Lupin and can be found here.

Ok, so where are you going with this, you ask.

First off, I’m a real estate whore, pardon my French, but it's the truth.  I absolutely LOVE it!  Seriously, I can't get enough of it.  It is my guilty pleasure.  If you are moving to Philly just ask me where the deal is cause, Baby, I know where to find it!  I know Philly like the back of my hand.  For only living in the city for about 3 ½ years, I’d say that is pretty dang good.  Who needs a GPS when you got Jess?

 I don’t even think real estate agents spend as much time researching real estate as much as I do.  No joke.  So when I tell you I have found a gem, you better believe it.  

This house has some serious swag.  Five bedrooms total with two and a half bath in a "developing" area for less than 200K, ummm... yes, please!   Not only could this be a pretty sweet investment opportunity, but it's gorgeous!  Take a peek inside of this monster.

 The hardwood floors look to be superb condition, and the staircase is oh so pretty.  Check out the boarder inlay. Hello details, I love you.

Right now I am imagining myself living here, raising a family and having a cup of tea.  I have found myself pondering how to decorate the mantel.  And just how might I arrange the furniture? 

 My mother-in-law, asked me if it has a kitchen.  Maybe she couldn't tell by the pictures, but this is it.  It could definitely use a face-lift in my opinion.  However, compared to the square inch we have right not, this is definitely an upgrade.
Speaking of extended family, this place has FIVE bedrooms!  Holy Moly of a Row Home!  We would never have an excuse to not accept company, and besides we would love it!

 It is a bit surprising, even for me, but I could potentially see myself in this city for another 5 years or so. I’m probably really freaking out my parents right about now.  Just this past December we were all about moving back down South, but now that the time is getting closer to make a major decision such as relocation… I don’t know if we are quite ready.  Can you relate?  Anyone?  Do you find yourself decorating houses that don't belong to you?
