Rupert Murdoch has finally shed his West Village townhouse for a sale price of $27.5 million, according to the New York Observer.

Murdoch was originally asking $28.9 million for the six-floor, 25-foot wide townhouse. Murdoch bought the home for $25 million in March of 2015, but listed it for sale just five months later.

He also owns the penthouse at One Madison, which he still has listed at $72 million.

The townhouse was bought through a shell company called West 11th Street LLC, according to the Observer.

Dolly Lenz had the listing.

Located at 278 West 11th Street, the 25-foot-wide townhouse was originally a bed and breakfast.

Murdoch converted it into a six-story mansion (counting the basement and roof deck) that is now 'triple mint,' 'turn-key', and 'ready to move in tomorrow', listing agent Dolly Lenz told Page Six.

If residents prefer not to take the winding sculptural staircase, a four-person elevator can take them between the various levels.
