The row of townhouses known as Turtle Bay Gardenswhere Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy are settling into (and renovating) their new $13.5 million mansionis know for its idyllic connecting garden, meaning that the renter of the house at 238 East 49th Street will share the green oasis with the May-December lovers. When lounging in the garden with celebrities and half-brothers of former French presidents becomes boring, the interior of the house has plenty to offer. The Versailles-inspired decor is the result of "a painstaking, no-expense-spared renovation." A few items of note, from the brokerbabble: "a marble and limestone foyer, Crema Madera and parquet de Versailles floors, imported Louis XV paneling, Empire-style wood-burning fireplaces, a Rococo powder room, crystal chandelier from Yoko Ono's apartment at the Dakota, and showpiece mirror etched with artwork by Nicolas Lancret." The rent is $23,500 per month.
