Last August, when reports surfaced that Olivier Sarkozy bought 123 E. 10th St., the Post described the historic 146-year-old home as a "love nest" he would share with girlfriend Mary-Kate Olsen.
Apparently there's a change in nesting, as the half-brother of the former French president has listed the single-family Anglo-Italianate townhouse for just less than $7 million. (The townhouse is one half of a 146-year-old set of homes. No. 125 is apparently not on the market.) Property records show that Sarkozy paid $6.25 million for the space.
Douglas Elliman has the listing. Here's a bit about the space:
Erected in 1854 by James Renwick, one of the most famous American Architects of his time, amongst Grace Church, St. Patricks Cathedral and other internationally acclaimed projects, 123 East 10th stands out as one of the most exquisite Row Houses built. This house remains to be as attractive and architecturally significant today as it was almost two centuries ago.
The home boasts at least five bedrooms and currently only four bathrooms but can easily accommodate more of each. An old world layout with a double parlor greets one with a lovely grand entrance and can accommodate multiple sitting rooms. A Garden Level which could be most appropriately used for a kitchen and casual dining area that leads out to a lovely garden with either an open plan for a casual entertaining room or a small room suitable for guest or staff.
No. 123 was on the market for nearly four years before Sarkozy bought it.
