Broker and appraiser types have suggested before celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz might want to sell her West Village townhouses?she has three, for more than 10,200 square feet in total?to get out of debt. Leibovitz managed to resolve her loan repayment issues a few years back without resorting to that. But now she's decided to move uptown, closer to her daughters' school, so she's ready to sell the houses anyway. She has put them on the market for a combined ask of $33 million. The listing hasn't hit the Brown Harris Stevens website yet, but according to the Journal, the property has a total of 13 fireplaces and is divided into offices, guest rooms, and actual living space.
The photographer built the compound gradually, buying and renovating the properties. She picked up two of the homes for $4.2 million in 2002 and the third for $1.9 million. So the kind of return she's hoping for on the investment would be enough to deal with any debt issues in the future.
