Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy are ready to make a full house of their own.
Even though the couple – Olsen is 16 years his senior – has only been dating four months, their relationship is getting quite serious as they are taking the big step of sharing a home together in New York City.

According to the New York Post, Sarkozy, the 42-year-old half brother of the former president of France, Nicolas Sarkozy, just spent $6.25 million on a 146-year-old East 10th street townhouse that Olsen reportedly plans to move in with him.

Sarkozy – who with Olsen “loved that [the townhouse] is old" – reportedly paid the full asking price for the palatial 4,200 square foot, five-story home, which comes with a Juliet balcony, nine fireplaces and a rear garden.

Their new love nest is in St. Mark’s Historic District in Manhattan's East Village – and Sarkozy has been given the thumbs up to renovate the home with the condition that he leaves the original outer appearance as is.
