Annie Liebovitz selling her New York townhouses

Photographer Annie Liebovitz has put her trio of New York townhouses up for sale for a combined total of $33 million.

The compound in Greenwich Village is currently configured to include living space, offices and guest quarters all set around a slate patio and private courtyard garden. Inside the main home, which dates back to the 1830s, there are original wooden floors, high ceilings, a formal dining room and chef's kitchen. The building that includes Ms Leibovitz's studio has a large reception room. The property includes 13 fireplaces in all and has a combined total of more than 10,200 square feet.

Leibovitz bought the first two buildings in 2002 for just over $ 4 million and the third house a few years later for $1.9 million, and named them collectively “West Village”. Despite having spent a not inconsiderable sum renovating them, it is thought that she will be selling for a substantial profit, especially considering the compound's uniqueness and its prime location.

"It's very rare to have something like this," says listing broker Paula Del Nunzio, of Brown Harris Stevens.
