This week in celebrity real estate, celebrated celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz has listed her West Village compound and singer Nancy Sinatra sold her Santa Monica home.
Annie Leibovitz’ picture-perfect compound for sale
The maker of so many of pop culture’s most iconic images from the past 40 years spent almost as much time creating a stellar artist’s compound in the West Village. Now, it seems it’s time to move on — or at least uptown — so famed photographer Annie Leibovitz has listed her 10,000-square-foot home at 755 Greenwich St, New York, NY 10014.
The price is a whopping $33 million, however, the townhouse in the heart of the Village is actually three separate addresses that have been combined into a spacious living and work space. The listing is held by Brown Harris Stevens agents Paula Del Nunzio and Guida De Carvalhosa, who fittingly describe the series of spaces, including a main residence with 4 bedrooms, a separate guest area, a studio and garden patio. The townhouse has 13 fireplaces, wide plank floors and central air.
Leibovitz has decided to list the property several years after she faced bankruptcy, which sent her scrambling to settle with creditors, including Goldman Sachs, and preserve the rights to her photographs, as well as saving her townhouse and stone farmhouse complex in Rhinebeck, NY.
According to the the agents listing her home, Leibovitz is now selling the West Village property to move uptown closer to the school that her three daughters attend.
Well, for owner Nancy Sinatra, who just bought this 4,000-square-foot home on a cul-de-sac one year ago, something must have given. The daughter of Frank Sinatra decided to move on — and fast. She not only listed this cozy home with double master suites but sold it in a very quick, 10-day settlement deal.
Sinatra’s boots must be made for walking away. The hit-making singer, who is now 72, listed the home for $4.985 million. She bought the place for $5,060,550 million in November 2011.
Listing agent Rory Barish of Lane Four Real Estate, a division of Keller Williams Beverly Hills, would not comment on the reasons for Sinatra’s change of heart. However, there’s no shortage of reasons why this home made for a great Los Angeles acquisition, even if it went in a New York minute.
“It’s just seven blocks to the ocean on a wonderful street, and the greatest thing is that you’re in the flats but you do not sacrifice the view. You can see the ocean from this house, but you are just blocks to (the Promenade and other Santa Monica landmarks)” Barish said.
