Mere weeks after acquiring the iconic Astor Tea House in Rhinebeck, N.Y., Robert Duffy, the president of fashion designer Marc Jacobs, is in contract to buy another Greenwich Village townhouse.

The four-story, four-bedroom home at 62 West 12th Street, between Fifth and Sixth avenues, was asking $11.25 million. It features an elevator, a 50-foot garden, a terrace off the master bedroom and an 18-foot glass atrium. 

Brown Harris Stevens broker Amanda Brainerd is representing the seller, while Frank Arends of Town Residential is representing Duffy.

Just down the street, Duffy bought a townhouse in 2011 at 35 West 12th Street — one of the skinniest homes in the city — for $5.2 million.

Duffy paid $2.31 million for the Rhinebeck estate, which comes with 32 acres and a four-bedroom house, as reported earlier this month. John Jacob Astor IV built it in 1902 to entertain America’s aristocracy. [NYP]Mark Maurer
