Andy Warhol’s Old Pad Is Up for Sale

Andy Warhol’s former New York home in Carnegie Hill—where he lived with his mother during a time he made some of his most iconic work, like his Campbell’s Soup Cans—is up for sale. The townhouse was purchased by the artist for $60,000 in 1959. Currently it’s on the market for $5.8 million.

Two owners, who apparently have remained anonymous, have lived in the space since Warhol left. In that time, the property has undergone a number of what they describe as small restorations and updates, if you can call the addition of a garden-level kitchen a small restoration. Of course, the attic has been thoroughly rummaged long ago for any unknown great works of modern art.
