The story goes that Mary Kate Olsen's much taller and older bf, French banker Olivier Sarkozy, bought the now-sold East Village town house for his diminutive and younger partner in 2012. But alas, the New York love den could not be.
The odd couple's enthusiasm presumably faded and they never even moved in. Now the Lincoln-era pad's been sold to artist Aaron Young
for the tidy sum of $6.4 million. That's a lot of The Row
The exchange of a New York mansion from power couple to power couple is nothing if not a great excuse to snoop around. So here you have it. The inside of Mary Kate Olsen
and Olivier's abandoned dream house, complete with a collection of useless gigantic logs for the closed-up fireplace and a lot of rugs. We wouldn't say no to some house sitting.
