Rupert Murdoch’s $29 million West Village townhouse is back on the market after failing to sell last summer

Six levels of pure luxury. Dolly Lenz

Rupert Murdoch is turning into a property flipping mogul — or he’s trying to, anyway.

First he listed his One Madison penthouse in April of 2015 (which he’d only bought a year earlier and still has yet to sell), and now he’s re-listing a West Village townhouse he bought just a year ago, according to Curbed.

Murdoch bought it for $25 million in March of 2015, and is seeking a nearly $4 million profit with an asking price of $28.9 million.

Dolly Lenz has the listing.
