Ashley Olsen, the unmarried half of the Olsen twin empire, is in contract to buy herself an apartment at 37 East 12th Street, according to the Wall Street Journal. Though the Journal did not have the closing price, the apartment was last listed on StreetEasy for $7.1 million. Madeline Hult Elghanayan, Dennis Mangone and Kirk Rundhaug of Douglas Elliman have the listing.
The apartment has 3,028 square feet, two bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. Each apartment in the building occupies an entire floor, and there are only six in total. Jared Seligman also of Douglas Elliman, who represented Olsen in the sale, told the Journal that the few tenants in the building makes it “very private” — an attractive quality for the child star.
The apartment’s crowning glory seems to be the tile work in the kitchen and the bathroom. The kitchen has an arched ceiling with “Spanish crackle-glazed subway tile” that resembles Grand Central, and the bathroom has Moroccan tile flooring.
Still, it’s not quite as grand as her sister’s residence in Turtle Bay: she and her husband, Olivier Sarkozy, live in a $13.5 million tripped out townhouse with a hall of mirrors and a rooftop exercise pool.
