Marc Jacobs’ West Village townhouse had been on the market for almost a year when he relisted the property at 68 Bethune Street with a new agency and a price chop last week. The New York Post reports the property went into contract the very next day, proving that sometimes a price cut makes all the difference. The fashion designer first listed the four-story, nearly 4,800-square-foot home last April for $15.9 million after having purchased it for $10.5 million in 2009. The new listing hit the market at $12 million but the final sale price is still unknown.
The home has five bedrooms (including a full-floor master suite), three bathrooms, a wood-burning fireplace, an elevator, and 1,400 square feet of outdoor space with both a garden and a roof terrace. Jacobs worked with several designers to transform the space into something “smart, sharp, and comfortable.” It was featured on the cover of Architectural Digest in 2017.
The property is considered part of Robert A. M. Stern’s Superior Ink condo development which consists of a 17-story tower and six townhouses on Bethune Street. Residents can take advantage of the building’s amenities, which include a gym, yoga room, screening room children’s playroom, and lounge with a catering kitchen. All this brings the monthly maintenance fees up to $7,719 a month.
Jacobs recently auctioned off most of the home’s furnishings with Sotheby’s Home, including several pieces by François-Xavier Lalanne, Pierre Chareau, and a floor lamp by Alberto Giacometti. Jacobs and his husband left the West Village for Westchester last year after buying a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home in Rye for $9.2 million.
