Carrie Bradshaw may have had a, um, difficult time when her hearthrob rustic boyfriend Aidan took her to the country (heels + mud = a very bad match), but it turns out, the real-life writer of "Sex and the City" has spent time experiencing the quiet country life for the past decade. That is, until now.
Candace Bushnell, the author behind The New York Observer column that was turned into the "Sex and the City" anthology, is listing her Connecticut farmhouse where she wrote four of her books - "The Carrie Diaries," "Summer in the City," "One Fifth Avenue" and "Killing Monica" - for $1.3 million, reports The Real Deal. Bushnell paid $661,500 for the circa-1830 home in 2005, meaning she's looking to double her investment.
Touted as a "mini estate" in its listing, the 1,469-square-foot home has been home to many artists over the years, including Walter Matthau, Arthur Miller and Alexander Calder. The 3-acre property includes the 19th-century Victorian farmhouse, a separate garage with a second floor, a separate guest house/pool house with an outdoor saltwater pool and, inside the main house, plenty of bookshelves - quite fitting for Bushnell.
As you roam the outside of the property, you'll come across an apple orchard, outdoor shower, a barn and a rose garden complete with rose bushes, rises and likes. Why, hello, picturesque country life.
Much like Carrie Bradshaw herself, Bushnell appears to love color - particularly 90s hunter green. Many rooms in the home are splashed with the late-19th century staple hue, while others boast baby blue, cardinal yellow and plenty of wallpaper.
Bushnell appears to be on a bit of a property overhaul as of late, just selling her Greenwich Village co-op last year for $2.6 million, and picking up a humbler co-op on the Upper East Side for $770,000 in February, according to 6sqft.
We can only wonder... are the closets in this country home filled with rainbow-hued Manolo Blahniks, or something more akin to brown Tommy Hillfiger boots? Check out more photos of the country property (slash writer's hub) below, and decide for yourself.
