Fashion designer Marc Jacobs has put his New York City townhouse on the market for $15.995 million, in the same month that he got married to his longtime boyfriend and just weeks after buying a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home north of the city.

Jacobs is selling in order to downsize in the city, the listing agent, Chris Poore of Sotheby’s International Realty, told The Wall Street Journal. Poore added that the designer will split his time between New York City and Rye, where he bought the $9.175 million Frank Lloyd Wright house.

"I’m 55 years old, I’m getting married," Jacobs told Women’s Wear Daily about the move in February. "This feels like really a new chapter. I’d like to live a life outside. I just sit home and watch TV in the five-floor town house, you know? It’s like, I’d like to be doing that with a beautiful view with dogs running around in the yard."

Jacobs bought the three-bedroom townhouse in 2009 for $10.495 million. The home includes a garden courtyard, a rooftop terrace, and an elevator that connects all four levels.

Fashion designer Marc Jacobs has put his New York City townhouse on the market for $15.995 million.

Jacobs has had a busy spring.

Jacobs’ four-story townhouse sits on a tree-lined block in Manhattan’s West Village neighborhood.

The home, along with neighboring townhouses, was designed by Robert A.M. Stern.

The three-bedroom home opens to a welcoming foyer.

The interiors were designed by Paul Fortune, John Gachot, and Thad Hayes.
