Rupert Murdoch has finally shed his West Village townhouse for a sale price of $27.5 million, according to The New York Observer.

Murdoch was originally asking for $28.9 million for the six-floor, 25-foot-wide townhouse. Murdoch bought the home for $25 million in March 2015, but listed it for sale just five months later.

He also owns the penthouse at One Madison, which he still has listed at $72 million.

The townhouse was bought through a shell company called West 11th Street LLC, according to The Observer.

Dolly Lenz had the listing.


Located at 278 W. 11th St., 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,” Lenz told Page Six.

If residents prefer not to take the winding sculptural staircase, then 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.
