The former Full House star purchased a full-floor unit in a converted Greenwich Village loft

[Update]: The full-floored Greenwich Village condo that reportedly went into contract with former Full House star Ashley Olsen has been sold for $6.75 million, reports the Observer. Though the sale was made to a limited liability company named 37 East 12th Street LLC, all evidence seems to suggest that Olsen is indeed the new owner. The Observer points out that the closing documents were signed by the lawyers that have represented one-half of the Olsen twins in previous real-estate transactions. So, there you have it.

Ashley Olsen, one-half of the erstwhile Full House stars the Olsen twins, is expanding her New York real estate portfolio. The current fashion designer (who co-founded the clothing lines Elizabeth & James and The Row with her sister, Mary-Kate) is in contract to purchase a 3,000-square-foot condo in Greenwich Village, according to the Wall Street Journal; the unit she's grabbing is one of the full-floor two-bedroom units at 37 East 12th Street. The building was built in the late 19th-century, according to StreetEasy, and houses only six units; it's currently being converted to condos by Edward J. Minskoff Properties.

The closing price for Olsen’s prospective new pad is undisclosed, but power broker Jared Seligman of Douglas Elliman Real Estate told the WSJ that the building has a similar unit currently going for $7.3 million. Seligman is representing Olsen in the deal.

This isn't Olsen’s first time purchasing property in NYC. Back in 2004, Ashley and her sister, Mary-Kate, bought a penthouse at 1 Morton Square in the West Village for $7.4 million but sold it in 2010 for $7.7 million.
