The road to the latest sale of 1 White Street, the Tribeca townhouse that John Lennon and Yoko Ono once identified as their Nutopian Embassy, has been neither long nor winding. The house hit the market in March asking $3.25 million, went into contract at the end of April, and has now closed, still at $3.25 million. The buyer's identity is hidden behind an LLC, and the documents contain no telltale signatures, but there's probably a camera-carrying Lennon fan out there who'll snap a photo soon enough. The house hasn't always had such an easy time finding buyers: it was previously on the market in early 2008 for $4.995 million and came off the market in September '08 at $3.999 million without having sold. Turns out even totally imaginary countries aren't always immune from market patterns.
