  • Or 'Manhattan condo of dreams', as it should be known

    We get obscene amounts of pleasure from nosing around our friends’ houses, so we can’t begin to explain our utter glee at looking at the pictures of the New York apartment that Ashley Olsen has just bought.

    Bearing in mind that the ex child star and her sister Mary Kate run a $1.5 billion fashion empire, the condo which is based in Manhattan’s iconic and enviable Greenwich Village is a prime piece of real estate. The condo is a 3,000 square-foot, floor-through unit located on East 12th Street (in case you want to send her any mail).

    And while it hasn’t been confirmed how much Ashley has purchased the property for, others in the eight-storey building have gone for around the $7.3 million (£4.86 million) mark.

    The condo, which is in a 19th century building, and was at one time an art gallery, contains two bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, and has 11-foot ceilings , a private elevator and exposure on the north and south sides. There is also a 24-hour fitness centre, and round-the-clock doormen and security. It was converted in 2014 by development giants, Edward J Minskoff Equities.

    While representatives for the 29-year-old Olsen twin would not comment on too many of the details of the apartment or her reasons for buying it, they did ensure the Wall Street Journey that the multi-million dollar pad was ‘very private.’

    Being a billionaire fashionista, Ashley wasn’t exactly going to go for a pad kitted out in Ikea and free-cycle bits. According to, the finishes and fixtures include brands Miele, Wolf and Sub-Zero kitchen appliances, Calcutta marble, and the piece de resistance – a reclaimed marble vanity from the Museum of Modern Art.

    Of course.
