Mark Geragos, super-attorney to the stars, purchased a 20-foot wide West Village townhouse for $4.75 million, The Real Deal has learned.

The four-bedroom, four-bathroom home, between Jane and West 12th streets at 107 Greenwich Avenue, was offered by Massey Knakal’s James Nelson, according to StreetEasy. Yelena Nersesyan of Manhattan-based law firm Busson & Sikorski served as Geragos’ counsel in the transaction, she told TRD.

Geragos represented the late Michael Jackson and currently counts rapper Sean “P. Diddy” Combs, celebrity spouse abuser Chris Brown and sticky fingers actress Winona Ryder among his clients.

Representatives for Geragos could not be reached.

The home was last listed for $5.49 million, StreetEasy shows. The Greek Revival home — last purchased in 2011 for $2.7 million, according to city records – is “in need of some renovation,” according to StreetEasy, but boasts three fireplaces. The seller was an entity listed as only “107 Greenwich Avenue LLC,” in city records.

In 2012, Geragos purchased a Fifth Avenue property to serve as the New York offices of his Los Angeles-based law firm Geragos & Geragos for $8 million, as The Real Deal reported.
