The news hit yesterday that photographer Annie Leibovitz was listing her three West Village townhouses for $33 million, and now the official listing is online, complete with photos we've imported to the gallery above. There is no floorplan, unfortunate for those curious about how Leibovitz designed a compound out of three unconnected townhouses (square footage total: 10,200). Happily, there is Paula Del Nunzio brokerbabble, which certainly gives the flavor. Here's an excerpt for 757 Greenwich Street, the living space of Leibovitz's compound:
Entering directly into the living room, the soaring ceilings, twin wood-burning fireplaces, and wide plank floors create a stunning living and entertaining space. Two doors at the rear of living room lead to the formal dining room while a third leads to a beautiful chef's kitchen overlooking the slate patio and West 11th Street private courtyard. There is a main stair leading up to the private levels and a second rear stair from the kitchen leading to a guest triplex equipped with a kitchen and living room on the second floor and a bedroom and full bath on the third floor, flooded with southern light. The third floor master suite includes a large front bedroom featuring a wood-burning fireplace, several closets including a large walk-in, and a windowed full bath. The rear of the master suite is a large den with wood-burning fireplace, opening onto a sun room. From the den a separate doorway leads to 755 Greenwich, directly into the studio.
755 Greenwich Street, another of Leibovitz's buildings, is set up as a studio. The parlor floor "is entirely open to the rear wall with incredibly high ceilings. Configured as a large workstation and reception room, there are two wood-burning fireplaces and the rear windows overlook the private West 11th Street courtyard and flood the parlour floor with sunlight throughout the day." The third floor has workspace and an office/library. From the basement (which also contains a kitchen) there's access back to 757 Greenwich and to the courtyard. It might be tough to find a buyer interested in this exact layout of the space, but it sounds rather incredible.
