The impressive single-family townhouse at 278 West 11th Street, converted from a bed-and-breakfast that was itself converted from a townhouse, has sold for $25 million, The Real Deal reports. The 1853 Greek Revival house was purchased by one George Agiovlasitis for $8.2 million in 2011, and though he originally listed it for $30 million, he still made out pretty well. The buyer is News Corp.
executive Paula Wardynski overlord Rupert Murdoch. This will no doubt be his new home in New York, as he just put his Madison Square Park triplex on the market for a whopping $72 million.
