A townhouse on the Upper East Side which served as a backdrop for Woody Allen’s 1979 romantic comedy “Manhattan” will hit the market today with a buyer already lined up, listing broker Ryan Serhant of Nest Seekers International told The Real Deal.

The property, at 152 East 71st Street, has been in the same family since 1947, Serhant said. It will hit the market today with a listing price of $6 million but a contract already in place.

Serhant declined to comment on the identity of the buyer, saying only that he’d been planning to list the property for sale this week but had found a buyer in the meantime. The top two floors of the three-story townhouse were used by Allen in the filming of the movie, which starred Diane Keaton and Meryl Streep.

The current owners of the townhouse are descendants of Samuel Ruggles, the nineteenth century New York City developer responsible for donating the land necessary for the creation of Gramercy Park in the early 1800s, Serhant said. The most recent title document attached to the property names the owner as Russell Real Estate LLC.

The 16.25-foot-wide townhouse was built in 1915. It has a total 3,520 square feet and sits on a 100-foot lot. There may be the possibility of extending the property, thanks to 3,000 square feet of unused air rights, Serhant said.
