If you have more than a few million dollars to blow and you want to feel what it's like to live like one of the world's most famous photographers, we've got a deal for you. Famed celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz has put her luxury New York City compound on the market for US$33 million.
The sprawling, 10,202-square-foot home is located on the corner of West 11th and Greenwich Street in the upscale West Village neighborhood of Manhattan, and consists of three separate townhouses, each with its own unique features.
Here's how the realtor selling Leibovitz's sprawling home describes one of the three townhouses at 757 Greenwich Street.
"Entering directly into the living room, the soaring ceilings, twin wood-burning fireplaces, and wide plank floors create a stunning living and entertaining space. Two doors at the rear of living room lead to the formal dining room while a third leads to a beautiful chef's kitchen overlooking the slate patio and West 11th Street private courtyard. There is a main stair leading up to the private levels and a second rear stair from the kitchen leading to a guest triplex equipped with a kitchen and living room on the second floor and a bedroom and full bath on the third floor, flooded with southern light."
Some of the details of the photographer's compound seem hard to believe, including the reported "13 fireplaces." If you want to see how "the other half lives," check out more images of Leibovitz's home below.
While the legendary photographer has photographed countless celebrities for a variety of well-known magazines in the course of a 40+ year career, she's recently struggled with financial difficulties. Leibovitz has said she's selling her New York City home to move closer to her daughter's school in upstate New York.
