The owner of 281 West 4th Street appears to have a nice life. He purchased the 1869 house for $5.8 million in 2007 and had it gut renovated by none other than Annabelle Selldorf, starchitect. The renovation was "inspired by the owners' creative talents," according to the new listing for the property, and one of those owners appears to be photo whisperer and Box Studios founder Pascal Dangin. Now Dangin wants $9.75 million for the 3BR, 2.5BA property.
