A New York City home featured in classic film Breakfast at Tiffany's is on the market for $8 million (£5 million).

The Upper East Side townhouse served as Audrey Hepburn's character's abode in the 1961 film, and was featured in the background for her scenes alongside co-star George Peppard, including their famous kiss in the rain.

The owner initially put the home on the market in May (14) for $10 million (£6.25 million) but has failed to lure any good offers, and decided to slash the price by $2 million (£1.25 million), according to the New York Daily News.

The house is currently configured as two separate duplexes, and boasts four storeys, an enclosed greenhouse, five wood-burning fireplaces, a solarium and a large back yard.

It was also the former home of Martha Stewart's stockbroker Peter E. Bacanovic, who served jail time as a result of an insider-trading scandal in 2004.
