West really is best for Cynthia Rowley. The fashion designer has just spent $8.9 million snapping up a fourth pad in the West Village.
Her new acquisition, at 394 Bleecker Street, is a 19-foot-wide townhouse between Perry Street and West 11th Street that looks as though it’s been undergoing some renovations recently.
“She’ll be keeping her business in the bottom of it,” Halstead Property broker Anne Prosser told the Observer. “The other two floors are residential, and one of them is rented. She’ll be fixing them up and re-renting them,” Prosser explained.
“It’s a really cool old house, with wide plank floors,” Prosser said. “It has been in the same family for 100 years! It’s in fairly original condition,” she added.
According to the Observer, Rowley already owns a townhouse at 30 Perry Street, where she resides with her husband, Bill Powers, and two children. She got into a little hot water with her neighbors last year, when she reportedly damaged their landmarked building while doing some construction.
