Andy Warhol once said, "Land really is the best art." Now, Warhol fans have the chance to own a piece of said art and of the famous artist's history. The Upper East Side townhouse, in which he once resided, will soon come back on the market for $8.75 million.
Located at 1342 Lexington Ave., between 89th and 90th Streets, the five-story home sold over a year ago for $5.5 million. The building's current owner is apparently looking to make a dollar (or a couple million) off it. She believes "the property’s historical significance and the strength of the Manhattan townhouse market ... can entice a wealthy buyer to pay 60 percent more than she did 15 minutes ago," according to New York Daily News.
Would you cop? Apparently, Warhol's former residence is one of only two or three homes going for less than $10 million in that neighborhood. Take a virtual tour of the artist's old crib below.

Warhol lived in the townhouse during the height of his career; it's the very home in which he created his famous Campbell's soup cans, dollar bill paintings, and Marilyn Monroe portraits.
