The iconic fashion designer Marc Jacobs has found a buyer for his townhouse at 68 Bethune St. in the West Village. The news comes just one day after the property re-entered the market at $12 million. The home originally hit the market in April 2019 for $15.995 million. Ryan Serhant and Donna Strugatz of Nest Seekers represented the property, which Jacobs purchased in 2009 for $10.5 million.

Inside Marc Jacobs’ Townhouse

The 4,796-square-foot property is located within the Robert A.M. Stern-designed Superior Ink development. Jacobs’ home boasts 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, two powder rooms, a wood-burning fireplace, an elevator and some of the craziest amenities we’ve ever seen. There’s an additional 1,400 square feet of outdoor space, including “a serene garden courtyard and a spacious rooftop terrace.” Over-the-top square footage and amenities aside, the home is, of course, incredibly stylish, too.

In 2017, the home made the cover of Architectural Digest. In his interview with the magazine, Jacobs said: “I didn’t want the house to feel like a pristine gallery or a Deco stage set—just something smart, sharp, and comfortable.” Jacobs clearly achieved his desired luxurious-meets-livable aesthetic. The interiors of the home relied heavily on neutral hues and ultra-soft upholstery. According to the New York Post, however, Jacobs sold the contents of the interiors through an auction at Sotheby’s earlier this year. In the end, a pair of Louis XVI chairs sold for nearly $13,000.

Jacobs Marries and Moves to the Suburbs

2019 was an eventful year for Jacobs. He married his longtime boyfriend, the model and interior designer Char Defrancesco. He then went on to purchase a  6,000-square-foot Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home in Westchester for $9.2 million. According to the Wall Street Journal, Jacobs wanted to “downsize his Manhattan footprint” and spend the bulk of his time in the suburbs. He told WWD, “This feels like really a new chapter. I’d like to live a life outside. I just sit home and watch TV in the five-floor townhouse, you know? It’s like, I’d like to be doing that with a beautiful view with dogs running around in the yard. ” Sounds idyllic.
