This House Is So Jane!

Is Jane Pratt skipping town? The founding editor of Sassy and then her namesake magazine, which she left amid much buzz in 2005, is listing her townhouse on Downing Street for $3.65 million through Erin Boisson Aries of Brown Harris Stevens. The four-bedroom property has quite the media lineage: City records show that James Murdoch owned it for three years, during which time his brother Lachlan is said to have lived there, until he sold it to Pratt in 2001. (Lachlan would go on to buy the huge graffiti-wrapped building at 11 Spring Street, planning to convert the whole thing into a single-family home, before ditching the project and moving back to Sydney.) The Murdochs brought the townhouse’s charms back to life through heavy renovations, but Pratt’s the one who gave it that final extra something. “It’s period with a modern twist,” says Aries, noting that it has working fireplaces, restored woodwork, and a French country garden out back. Pratt, who now hosts a show on Sirius Satellite Radio, is rumored to be contemplating a move out West but has announced no firm plans.
