On Thursday, the sprawling $12m New York City apartment recently owned by Marc Jacobs and his husband Charly Defrancesco was featured on an episode of Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing New York.

Defrancesco—who married the designer in 2019— gave MDLNY real estate broker Ryan Serhand a tour of the lavish apartment in Manhattan’s West Village.

The episode features a galley-style kitchen, Miele appliances and a mica stone fireplace - but what really made fans’ jaws drop was the living room ... which has a custom 18K gold ceiling that Defranseco says only two people in the world could create.

Staying true to the all-things gold theme, the powder room also has $100,000 gold ceiling decor.

Serhant also points out the “top-notch” custom Meljac light switches throughout the apartment, which retail for around $300 - each.

Defrancesco says that it was fashioned after Jacobs’ childhood home. “We don’t f**k around here,” he joked.

According to an article from the New York Post, the couple sold the multi-story home for $12 million, which was a reduced price. The apartment also graced the cover of Architectural Digest in 2017.

After selling the apartment with Donna Strugatz of Nest Seekers international and Serhant, the fashion-forward couple moved to a home in Westchester, New York.

The designs were fashioned after Frank Lloyd, who is known for designing the Guggenheim Museum.

The apartment is listed under SERHANT, the real estate company that Serhant started in 2020.

So, whoever gets their hands on the extravagant property will have the Bravo star himself as the landlord.

Serhant spoke to PEOPLE in April about his fondness for the apartments saying, “My wife and I gut renovated it to make it a perfect SoHo penthouse, and we’re going to miss waking up here every day.”
