British tech entrepreneur Jos White has just listed a four-bedroom townhouse for $26 million, reports the Wall Street Journal.

White, currently a partner at Notion Capital, bought the light-filled home on a quiet, tree-lined block in Greenwich Village for $7.25 million back in 2009. Originally built in 1915, the three-story building has an English flare and quirky interior touches, like a disco ball in the master bedroom.

Other perks include a private front garden, a wood-burning fireplace, and a rooftop glass "atelier" modeled after the Maison de Verre in Paris. Designed by architect Basil Walter, it's listed with Douglas Elliman Real Estate.
