Marc Jacobs’s clothes will go down in history as iconic one day just as Frank Lloyd Wright homes are seen that way in the architecture world. Since design visionaries are respected and inspirational across industry boundaries, it isn’t surprising that Jacobs would want to own a house of great architectural significance. The fashion designer seems to have it all right now, as he just got married last weekend and now has scooped this enviable Rye home in an off-market deal for $9.175 million.

Dubbed the Max Hoffman House after the man Wright designed it for in the 1950s, the stylish mid-century abode boasts a generous 6,000-square-feet, which is more than enough space for the designer to make it the backdrop of an impromptu fashion show.

The illustrious Westchester County location is perfect for zipping to and from Manhattan, which is exactly what Jacobs was looking for when he set out to find a weekend home. Six bedrooms and five bathrooms make it ideal for hosting guests away from the busy city, too.

Thanks to this deal, the architectural masterpiece switched hands for the first time since the 1990s when investor Thomas Tisch and his wife picked it up. Mansion Global reports that Joshua Wesoky of Compass represented the sellers while Laura DeVita of Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty represented Marc Jacobs.
