Marc Jacobs sells off the contents of his West Village home

Fashion lovers can now own Marc Jacobs’ favorite lamb. The designer has tapped Sotheby’s Home to sell off the remaining contents of his four-story West Village townhouse at 68 Bethune St., which was recently asking $14.5 million. (It was pulled from the market last month, but we’re told it’s still available as a whisper listing.) Jacobs’ treasures — including the aforementioned wooden sheep ($495), an antique brass tree sculpture ($1,250), and a pair of Louis XVI upholstered fauteuils ($12,995) are all up for grabs.

The former bad boy wed Char Defrancesco in NYC last spring and the couple promptly bought a 6,000-square-foot Frank Lloyd Wright home in Westchester for $9.2 million. Jacobs quipped that there’s simply no room for his pricey tchotchkes, furniture and objets d’art in their new FLW digs. (A previous auction of the designer’s paintings and artwork raked in $8.1 million.)

The 4,796-square-foot, Robert A.M. Stern-designed NYC townhouse (which Jacobs originally paid $10.5 million for in 2009 and showcased in Architectural Digest) offers three bedrooms, four bathrooms, a wood-burning fireplace, an elevator, a garden courtyard and a rooftop terrace — along with a hefty $7,719 monthly maintenance fee.
