Summer, it appears, is for both lovin' and real estate transactions. EV Grieve spotted that Olivier Sarkozy, the half-brother of former French president-slash-casanova Nicolas, is already selling off his 19th-century East Village rowhouse at 123 East 10th Street, which he bought last August for $6.25 million. Dubbed a "love nest" for him and much-younger girlfriend Mary-Kate Olsen, the Frenchman picked up this 1854 five-bedroom, four-bathroom house at 123 East 10th Street?designed by James Renwick of Grace Church and St. Patrick's Cathedral fame?because it was old. (Insert joke about their 17-year age difference here.) Signs, a.k.a. the tabloids, report that, even after a year of dating, the couple is still canoodling all over the city, so perhaps he's trading it in for a more modern residence. The handsome red-brick home with multiple parlors, eight fireplaces, original parquet floors, detailed moldings, and a garden is listed for $6,995,000.
