No one seems to want to keep these historic Anglo-Italianate townhouses on 10th Street

Off and on through the [EVG] years, those beautiful single-family Anglo-Italianate townhouses that date to the 1850s at 123-125 E. 10th St. between Second Avenue and Third Avenue have been for sale.

And now they are both back on the market here in the St. Mark's Historic District. The listings arrived yesterday on Streeteasy. (No. 123 is here... and No. 125 is here.)

The Post first took note of this. We'll let them do the lifting:

One, at 123 E. 10th St., listed with Mark Amadei of Sotheby’s International Realty for $7.69 million. The other, 125 E. 10th St., hit the market for $8.3 million and is represented by Jason Haber of Warburg Realty.

But together, according to the Warburg listing, both can be sold together for $15.99 million.

“123 E. 10th St. was built at the same time as [125 E. 10th St.] and they share one of the largest private gardens in Manhattan,” the Warburg listing adds.

Fun cost-of things fact: In 2011, the two-townhouse combo price was $12.95 million.

A few pics now. These are from No. 125... inside and out...

As TMZ Grieve reported off and on in 2012 and 2013 and, what the hell, 2014, Mary-Kate Olsen and her beau Olivier Sarkozy bought No. 123, and they rented No. 125. Eventually they sold No. 123 and went off elsewhere.

Previously on EV Grieve:
Your chance to see inside a historic townhouse on East 10th Street tonight (complimentary wine alert!)

One of my favorite blocks in the East Village. It feels like it could have been used as a film setting for the series "The Alienist". You do not experience this architectural history and beauty in many U.S. urban settings. If I won the Super-ball I would be making the call.

15.99. That’s quite a package discount

If you got this kind of cash lying around you have a lot of options looking for home. The sad part of this is someone will buy the two buildings destroy the original intact interiors and "doublewide" each floor. Turn it into something resembling a new build then flip it again. It is a shame some wealthy people have zero regard for history and architecture we know real estate people could care le$$

Fourteen foot wide townhouses are a tough sell, even on a landmark block.

Calm down on the barbs. Any owner should at least make these places historic treasures circa 1991.
