Mary-Kate Olsen and her much-older boyfriend Olivier Sarkozy are planning to live together in the $6.25 million East Village townhouse Sarkozy just purchased.
Olsen, 26, and 46-year-old Sarkozy will move in to the five-story, 4,200-square-foot home that was built the year Abraham Lincoln became president, according to The New York Post.

Sources say Sarkozy, a banker and half-brother of former French President Nicolas Sarkozy, paid the full asking price for the townhouse, which includes nine fireplaces and a large garden.
Sarkozy recently sold his townhouse on New York's Upper East Side, which he originally listed for $11.25 million, but the final price for the home was much lower at $8.4 million.
Olsen began dating the Frenchman after his divorce in 2011. Sarkozy's ex-wife, Charlotte, has called his relationship with the famous twin "grotesque."
The actress and fashion designer has previously dated David Katzenberg, son of DreamWorks partner Jeffrey Katzenberg, and Greek shipping heir Stavros Niarchos. Olsen dished to W Magazine in 2006 that the break-up with Niarchos was the primary reason behind her decision to leave New York University, and his subsequent relationship with Paris Hilton left Olsen and the hotel heiress on bad terms.
