The 20-foot-wide townhouse at 311 West 11th Street — just a portion of photographer Annie Leibovitz’s former three-townhouse assemblage — hit the rental market yesterday for $15,000 per month, according to StreetEasy. Leibovitz used this property as a guesthouse.

The West Village townhouses now belong to David Lauren, son of fashion mogul Ralph Lauren, and his wife Lauren Bush Lauren, the niece of President George W. Bush. The couple purchased the three-townhouse spread for a cool $28.5 million in January, as Luxury Listings NYC reported. They scooped up the 40-foot-wide 755 and 757 Greenwich Street for $23.5 million and 311 West 11th for $5 million.

A call to a spokesperson at Ralph Lauren, where David works as a top exec, was not immediately returned. His wife could not immediately be reached.

Charlie Attias of the Corcoran Group has the listing for the three-story 11th Street spread, which PropertyShark says measures 3,000 square feet. Attias declined to comment on the listing.

The home comes equipped with wide-plank oak flooring, three wood-burning fireplaces, lofted ceilings and a renovated kitchen. There are two bedrooms and one bathroom.

Leibovitz began acquiring the assemblage in 2002. She first bought the two Greenwich Street buildings for $4.2 million. She then purchased the 11th Street address for $1.9 million one year later. — Zachary Kussin
