 Viva West 10th Street: $33.15 M. Townhouse  Sets Downtown Record

The glory days of Manhattan’s stratospheric real estate market continue: the 55-foot-wide townhouse at 11 West 10th Street, which The Observer reported on when it went to contract in November, has sold.

The blogging venture capitalist Fred Wilson owns the 15,000-square-foot townhouse, which he listed in July with Debbie Korb at Sotheby’s International Realty. The asking price was $37.5 million.

If it closed near there, this 1847 mansion would be the most expensive single-family residence downtown.

Well, it has closed–and it is indeed a record setter.
