British fashion moguls Tom and Ruth Chapman, co-founders of clothing retailer MatchesFashion, are in contract to sell their $25 million West Village townhouse, Gimme Shelter has learned.
The stunning five-bedroom, 4½-bath home at 252 W. 12th St. first hit the market for that price last July.
The deal comes shortly after the Chapmans sold a property in Beverly Hills’ Trousdale Estates for $35.25 million in October.
That 1960s California residence first hit the market for a cool $42 million last July. They had purchased it for $24 million in 2017, the year they sold MatchesFashion for around $535 million to Apax Partners. Trousdale Estates neighbors include LVMH billionaire Bernard Arnault.
Back in New York, the Chapmans bought the West Village home in 2019 for $19 million. The seller was oil heiress Aileen Getty, who broke even — as she bought the tony townhouse for $19 million in 2017. That previous seller was Adam Dell, who shares a child with food personality Padma Lakshmi, and is the brother of computer mogul Michael Dell.
The landmarked red brick townhouse, renovated by architect Steven Harris, was built in 1910. At a cozy 20 feet wide, Harris gutted the home and smart-wired it.
Details include a living room with a woodburning marble fireplace and two seating areas. There’s also an eat-in chef’s kitchen that leads to an outdoor seating area. Additionally, the home includes radiant-heated floors, a gym, wine storage, a screening/family room — and a main bedroom that takes up the third floor and features a walk-in closet, a woodburning fireplace and a spa-like bath.
Outdoor spaces also include a landscaped roof terrace, a hot tub and a stone-paved rear garden.
Compass broker Carl Gambino, who listed both the Beverly Hills home and the West Village townhouse, declined to comment.
