"Oh, golly gee damn!"

It appears the place Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) called home in the 1961 classic "Breakfast at Tiffany's" has found a seller. The house, where Golightly lived alongside Paul Varjak (George Peppard) , was put on the market back in December.

According to the New York Observer, 169 East 71st Street has just been sold to a Cyprus-based buyer -- a company called Costalea Holdings Limited -- for $5.97 million.

The house's previous owner, Peter E. Bacanovic, bought the house back in 2000 for $1.88 million.

The movie, which celebrated its 50th anniversary last October, is still considered one of the best films in history. "Tiffany's" went on to win two Oscars at the 34th Academy Awards, for Best Original Song and Best Original Score. (Hepburn was nominated for Best Actress, and writer George Axelrod for Best Adapted Screenplay.)
