Rupert Murdoch is turning into a property flipping mogul – or he’s trying to, anyway.

First he listed his One Madison penthouse in April of 2015 (which he’d only bought a year earlier and still has yet to sell), and now he’s re-listing a West Village townhouse he bought just a year ago, according to Curbed.

Murdoch bought it for $25 million in March of 2015 and is now asking $28.9 million.

Dolly Lenz has the listing.


Located at 278 West 11th Street, the 25-foot-wide townhouse was originally a bed and breakfast.

Murdoch converted it into a six-story mansion (counting the basement and roof deck) that is now “triple mint,” “turn-key”, and “ready to move in tomorrow”, listing agent Dolly Lenz told Page Six.

If residents prefer not to take the winding sculptural staircase, a four-person elevator can take them between the various levels.

A wall of glass separates the ground level and the backyard garden.

This allows plenty of light into the stark white kitchen.
