Ashley Olsen went into contract on a luxe two-bedroom spread at 37 East 12th Street in May. The Greenwich Village apartment had been listed for $7.1 million, but the Observer confirms that the single twin has now closed on the home for $6.75 million. The 19th century cast-iron building was converted to six full-floor boutique condos, and this privacy is what reportedly enticed Olsen. The prime Village location probably didn’t hurt either considering she and sis Mary Kate named their clothing line The Row after the famous stretch of rowhouses along Washington Square Park.
The listing described the 3,000-square-foot home as having “a gracious, Old World sensibility, reimagined for contemporary living.” Though it’s been outfitted with modern updates like chevron-patterned walnut flooring and a sleek living room fireplace, the condo retains original details including barrel-vaulted ceilings, large picture windows, and exposed cast iron columns.
The steel and restoration glass doors that separate the kitchen and dining room are definitely the centerpiece of the space. The kitchen boasts custom rift white oak cabinetry, hones marble counters, and Spanish crackle-glazed subway tiles on the backsplash and arched ceilings.
The though bedrooms are fairly understated, the bathrooms really go all out. The master has honed Calcutta marble walls, custom mosaic floors, a freestanding polished-metal soaking tub, separate toilet, and rain shower. The powder room has cast Moroccan tile floors and a custom vanity with reclaimed Museum of Modern Art marble.
As 6sqft previously explained, “This is not the 29-year-old Olsen’s first foray into downtown real estate. In 2004, she and twin sister Mary Kate bought a $7.3 million penthouse at 1 Morton Square to serve as their NYU ‘dorm,'”selling it in 2010 for $7.7 million.” Ashley won’t be too far from her twin; Mary Kate and husband Olivier Sarkozy bought painter David Deutsch’s magnificent Turtle Bay townhouse in 2014 for $13.5 million.
