Marc Jacobs co-founder Robert Duffy lists Manhattan duplex for $2.2M

Marc Jacobs co-founder Robert Duffy is about to put his Sutton Place maisonette duplex on the market for $2.2 million — the price he paid for it back in 2018. The 42-foot-wide home, at 444 E. 52nd St., is 2,300 square feet.

It features a private entrance and opens to a central foyer with an elegant staircase. The first floor features a large eat-in chef’s kitchen, a living and dining room and a study and laundry room, while three bedrooms and two bathrooms are upstairs.

The home has  9-foot-3-inch beamed and coffered ceilings, as well as restored original prewar details, including dark finished hardwood floors, moldings, sconces and chandeliers. There’s also lots of storage and room for entertaining.

The maisonette listing broker is Terry Naini, of Brown Harris Stevens.

Duffy, 65, also spends time at the Astor Tea House in Rhineback, NY, which he bought for $2.31 million in 2013; it was part of the estate where Chelsea Clinton got married.

He also seems to be more realistic about real estate pricing these days. He previously owned 62 W. 12th St., which he bought for $10.25 million in 2013, put on the market for $17 million, less than three years later — then sold for just $9.5 million in 2017, according to city records. Before that, Duffy bought 35 W. 12th St. for $5.2 million in 2011 and sold it for $5.5 million in 2015.
