Mary-Kate Olsen and her boyfriend Olivier Sarkozy have recently put their New York City's East Village apartment on the market for $6.9 million just less than a year after purchasing it.
The 19th century brownstone, located on East 10th Street, was purchased by the 44-year-old managing director in August 2012 for $6.25 million. Prior to that, the apartment has been on the market for four years, which might mean that the 27-year-old designer and her boyfriend will have a hard time selling it.
The Douglas Elliman Real Estate website describes the property as "one of the most exquisite Row Houses built." The 4,200sq ft house is part of a series designed by James Renwick, the architect famous for designing NY's St. Patrick's Cathedral.
The property includes a 'Juliet' balcony, five bedrooms, four bathrooms, multiple parlors, eight fireplaces and original parquet floors. It also has a large private garden in the backyard.
"If you appreciate a level of detail, craftsmanship, and charm that cannot be replicated, this authentic house is a rare and exceptional offering," the real estate website states.
The couple who have been dating for over a year, reportedly chose the East Village townhouse because they "like that it is old," an insider told the New York Post.
Even though it hasn't been revealed where the couple is living now, the photos posted on the website show the apartment unfurnished.
Olsen and Sarkozy are usually seen around New York where they are frequent visitors of New York Knicks games. In early July, they were seen eating with friends at Italian eatery Antica Pesa in Brooklyn.
"Everyone has an opinion," Olsen said in an interview with WSJ Magazine about their age difference."I find it's better to focus on what's in front of you and to keep putting one foot in front of the other."
