The pop-art legend bought 1342 Lexington Avenue, in Manhattan, in 1959, and moved in with his mother and 25 cats.

The recently renovated four-bedroom property is part of a row designed in 1889 by Henry J.

It has a first-floor living area with 10 ft ceilings, a wood-panelled library/dining room and a kitchen full of state-of-the art appliances.
