MARC JACOBS MANHATTAN MANSION
Following his recent marriage to longtime beau Charly “Char” Defrancesco fashion designer Marc Jacobs has placed his Manhattan townhouse on the market for $15.995 million.
Combining classic glamour with a sense of true urban tranquility, the four-story townhouse on a tree-lined West Village block was commissioned by a world-renowned fashion designer as his own private oasis.
The internationally esteemed firm of Robert A. M. Stern served as architects for the Bethune Street townhouse one of a handful built as part of the Superior Ink condominium project developed in the late 2000s.
The 4,346 square feet four-story house offers plenty of stylish living and entertaining space, three serene bedroom suites, and 1,462 square feet of alluring outdoor areas, including a secluded garden courtyard and an idyllic rooftop terrace.
No detail was overlooked in the creation of the home, which has been featured in Architectural Digest and boasts such well-considered details as custom hardware from H. Theophile and light switches from Meljac. An elevator connects the four levels, all of which have walls ideal for the display of art. The Superior Ink condominium complex provides residents with a host of amenities and services, including a 24-hour doorman and concierge, a gym, yoga and screening rooms, a lounge with a catering kitchen, a garage, and storage space.
