Checking up on her swanky estate, Mary Kate Olsen was spotted in the East Village of New York City on Monday afternoon (August 20).

The 26 year-old fashionista was spotted with her boyfriend, Olivier Sarkozy, to make sure the renovations on their $6.25 million townhome were running smoothly.

According to a source for the New York Post, the 42 year-old decided to purchase the 146-year-old townhouse because he and Olsen "like that it is old."

The historic 4,200 square-foot home comes with five bedrooms, four baths, eight fireplaces, and a "Juliet balcony" on the second floor. The townhouse was designed by James Renwick Jr., who is better known as the architect of St. Patrick's Cathedral, the Smithsonian and the Main Building at Vassar College.
