Portrait of Perfection: Annie Leibovitz Lists West Village Compound for $33M
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.
In the meantime, Leibovitz continues to work hard. When she is not capturing celebrities and politicians, she hits the road to promote a show traveling across the country to accompany her newest book, “Pilgrimage.” The exhibition is now at The Gettysburg Museum at the National Military Park in central Pennsylvania. The work is from Leibovitz’s travels to some of America’s most revered historic sites, including Niagara Falls and the homes of Emily Dickinson.
