Nearly three years after their 12-room Greenwich Village condo in New York first hit the market – without their ever having lived in it – Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen have put it on the market again.

Only this time, the price tag of the nearly 6,000 square feet of luxurious living and Hudson River views has jumped some $4.7 million, to just under $12 million, after the sisters paid $7.3 million in December 2004, reports the New York Observer.

Not that the Olsens, both 21, have been losing money all these years. “The apartment has been rented, and has been continually rented since” the Olsens first took possession, Stribling & Associates vice president Charlotte Van Doren tells the weekly newspaper.

Monthly rent has been $35,000. Included is a 53-foot-long entertainment space interrupted only by a glass-enclosed fireplace.

“It’s very dramatic, very dramatic,” says Van Doren of an entertainment space whose 53-foot expanse is broken only by a glass-enclosed fireplace. “You walk in and it’s right there, bang.”

River views are available from the living/dining room, the master bedroom, the master dressing room – which the realtor calls “as large as a large maid’s room, basically” – and the two other bedrooms.

The residence also boasts two separate 100-sq.-ft.-plus walk-in closets, in addition to the master dressing room.
