Carrie Bradshaw
may have lived in a cute, one-bedroom, rent controlled apartment on "Sex and the City" -- but in real life, the pad is a lot swankier!

Though Sarah Jessica Parker's character lived on the Upper East Side, the two buildings used for exteriors during the show's run were actually located in the West Village ... and right now, one of them is on sale.

The four-story townhouse on Perry Street is a far cry from Carrie's quaint apartment, featuring five bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, six fireplaces and 12 ft. ceilings.

Not surprisingly, the place isn't cheap. The price tag: $9.65 million.

Now that's a lot of Manolos!
