Marc Jacobs has officially closed on the sale of his West Village townhouse, reaping a mere $50,000 more than he paid for it more than a decade ago.

Jacobs sold his four-story townhouse at 68 Bethune Street, part of the Superior Ink condominium, for $10.5 million, a property record filed this week shows. The fashion designer had shelled out $10.495 million for the home in 2009.

The new owner is 68 Bethune Trust, with attorney David I. Keusch as trustee.

Jacobs put the nearly 4,800-square-foot home on the market in April 2019 for about $15.9 million. But in February, he chopped the price to $12 million, and the listing, marketed as 68 Bethune Street, went into contract a day later.

The four-bedroom house comes with more than 1,400 square feet of outdoor space and a rooftop terrace. Jacobs hired interior architect Andre Tchelistcheff and interior designers Paul Fortune, John Gachot and Thad Hayes to design the luxury pad, according to its listing with Nest Seekers International’s Ryan Serhant and Donna Strugatz.

Messages to Marc Jacobs’ firm and Keusch were not immediately returned. The agents also did not respond to a request for comment.

Robert A.M. Stern designed Superior Ink’s 17-story luxury condominium, which has attracted celebrity buyers. Completed in 2009 and developed by Related Companies, the complex, at 400 West 12 Street, has 50 apartments and also includes seven townhouses whose occupants share the condo’s amenities.
