Marc Jacobs Lists His Elegant West Village Townhouse For $16M

By Jennifer Baum Lagdameo
It looks like the world-famous fashion designer is downsizing.

Right on the heels of purchasing a Frank Lloyd Wright home in the New York suburb of Rye, fashion designer Marc Jacobs has put his West Village townhouse on the market. In fact, it's been reported that Jacobs is looking to downsize in Manhattan as he prepares to split his time between New York City and Rye.

The four-story townhouse is set on a tree-lined West Village block and is part of the Superior Ink condominium project designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects in the late 2000s. 

Located in the West Village, 68 Bethune Street is a three-bedroom townhouse that is part of the Superior Ink condominium project designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects in the late 2000s. The interiors were designed by Andre Tchelistcheff, Paul Fortune, John Gachot, and Thad Hayes.

The 4,346-square-foot residence is every bit as stylish and luxurious as you would expect the home of a world-famous fashion designer to be. It has a light-filled living/dining room; an elegant wood-paneled television room with sliding glass doors leading to an outdoor space; three hotel-like bedroom suites, and 1,462 square feet of outdoor space—including a secluded garden courtyard and an idyllic rooftop terrace.

In the living room, a 1962 Ellsworth Kelly painting hangs above the fireplace's custom-made mica mantelpiece.

A large artwork by Urs Fischer hangs in the dining area. The table and chairs are by Jacques Quinet.

In the elegant, wood-paneled television room, a painting by Richard Prince hangs above a custom-made sofa by Jonas and a brass Gabriella Crespi table from Nilufar.

A Dopey sculpture by Paul McCarthy holds center stage in the television room. Floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors lead to the outdoor space.
