Andy Warhol famously said we would all enjoy 15 minutes of fame- well, it's now the turn of his old Manhattan townhouse to go under the spotlight. It's where he created his earliest most influential work including Campbell's soup cans. It's near 89th street and he (and his mother and 25 cats) lived there from 1959 to 1974. The four-bedroom, four-bathroom piece of pop-art history is just 16.5 feet wide but has ten-foot ceilings, panelled areas and naturalsunlight for the top two storeys where his studio was. It's on sale for $8.75m through Halstead Property (halstead.com).
