More than a year after putting it back on the market, Marc Jacobs co-founder and president Robert Duffy has found a buyer for his Greenwich Village townhouse. Duffy bought the house in late 2011, paying $5.2 million, parting with his other Village townhouse in the process. In January of 2014, after completing a renovation, he relisted it for $8 million, but eventually settled for a steeply discounted $5.5 million. The buyer, according to the Post, is Rosalind Resnick, "an ex-journalist turned real-estate investor who made her first fortune selling an e-mail marketing firm she had co-founded for $111 million in cash." She told the Post, "My dream was to own a townhouse in the West Village and be surrounded by books. Now I own eight of them." Weird—with $111 million, you would think she could afford at least a dozen books.
