Vince Clarke, the English synthpop musician and songwriter who purchased the former home of J. Crew creative director Jenna Lyons last week, an impressive seven-bedroom townhouse in Park Slope, has sold a Brooklyn property he purchased just last year with wife Tracy Hurley.

Clarke, who has been in a number of successful groups, including Depeche Mode, Yazoo, the Assembly and Erasure, has sold his three-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom condominium at 30 Main Street in Dumbo for $3 million, according to public records filed with the city today, $200,000 more than he paid for it in August 2011. The 2,474-square-foot unit is in the Sweeney Building, an 11-story condo development built in 1910. The sale closed March 19.

The apartment sold to Jennifer Tost, a resident of New Hampshire, records show. It was listed with Chris Pomeroy of Halstead Property for $3.1 million in December. Neither Pomeroy nor Clarke was immediately available for comment.

Clarke bought Lyons’ four-story townhouse, at 178 Garfield Place, featured on the cover of Domino magazine in 2009 for its impeccable interiors, last week, The Real Deal previously reported.
