Fashion House


New York based fashion designer, Marc Jacobs has sold his New York townhouse after purchasing a property designed by Frank Lloyd Wright outside the city.

Jacobs, listed his longtime townhouse in Manhattan’s West Village last April for $15.9 million, and after it failed to sell he lowered the price to $12 million earlier this week and it reportedly sold the next day.

The designer purchased the four-story, 4,796-square-foot home for $10.5 million in 2009, and it has since been reimagined and redecorated to suit the his eclectic taste. He told architectural Digest back in 2017 “I’m not big on having a particular concept or look, I just want to live with things I genuinely love - great Art Deco furniture, pieces from the ’70s, and contemporary art. But I didn’t want the house to feel like a pristine gallery or a Deco stage set—just something smart, sharp, and comfortable.”

The chic space with details such as a custom mica mantel over the living room fireplace, alabaster sconces in the formal dining room, and patterned marble countertops and backsplashes in the galley kitchen, boasts five bedrooms and three full and two half bathrooms, with an elevator that runs between floors. The luxurious master suite takes up an entire floor, featuring an all-marble bathroom with double vanities, a deep-soaking tub, a separate steam shower, and a mahogany dressing room. The home also includes 1,400 square feet of outdoor space split between a courtyard and a rooftop terrace.

As the home is a part of a condo development, it’s complemented with a wealth of amenities available to the new owner including a gym, a yoga room, a screening room, a children’s playroom, and a lounge with a catering kitchen.

Jacobs’ decision to sell the house comes after he and his husband, candlemaker Char Defrancesco, purchased a 6,000-square-foot Frank Lloyd Wright pile in Rye, New York, for $9.175 million last April.
