The Olsen twins love real estate almost as much as they love smokey eye shadow. Before Mary-Kate married French banker Olivier Sarkozy in 2015, the couple spent some time in the East Village. Sarkozy purchased the Anglo-Italianate townhome at 123 East 10th Street in 2012 for $6.25 million. However, the lovebirds never moved in; instead, they rented the similar house next door at 125 East 10th Street from 2012 until they purchased and moved into an equally grand townhouse in Turtle Bay in 2014. The Post now reports that the neighboring East Village homes have once again come onto the market, this time with the option to combine them for one $16 million mansion.

Sarkozy, the half-brother of former French President Nicolas Sarkozy, sold the townhouse at 123 East 10th Street in 2014 for $6.4 million to French artist Aaron Young and his wife, fashion entrepreneur Laure Heriard Dubreuil. It’s not surprising that the creative duo have created a home that the listing calls “Bohemian Rhapsody.” The 4,200-square-foot residence is filled with funky furniture and quirky art, but it retains its historic details such as ornamental moldings, carved fireplaces, and exposed brick walls. There are two bedrooms on the third floor, and the master suite occupies the entire fourth floor.

Next door, 125 East 10th Street also spans 4,200 square feet and retains its historic architecture.

The houses were built together in 1854 by noted architect James Renwick of St. Patrick’s Cathedral fame. They are part of the St. Mark’s Historic District and feature wrought-iron fences, front doors, and Juliet balconies along the second story. No. 125 is listed for $8.3 million and No. 123 for $7.695 million. They’re also being offered together for $15,995,000.

Together, the homes share one of the largest private gardens in all of Manhattan. It’s already configured as a shared space with cobblestone and bluestone patios, stepped stone terraces, romantic plantings, and views of the historic St. Mark’s Church in the Bowery.
Olsen and Sarkozy still own their Turtle Bay townhouse, which they purchased in 2014 for $13.5 million. Twin Ashley Olsen picked up a $6.75 million apartment in a boutique Greenwich Village condo in 2016.
