Famous fashion designer Marc Jacobs is the new owner of a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed waterfront home in Rye, the Wall Street Journal reported. Jacobs ponied up $9.175 million for the approximately 6,000-square-foot Max Hoffman House, which Wright built for Austrian-born automobile importer Maximilian Hoffman in the 1950s. The home was once owned by philanthropist Emily Fisher Landau and was most recently owned by investor Thomas Tisch and his wife. Compass’ Joshua Wesoky represented the sellers of the nearly 2-acre property at 58 Island Drive, while Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty agent Laura DeVita represented Jacobs, who will use the home as a “weekend retreat,” according to the outlet. [WSJ]
