Teen actresses MARY-KATE and Ashley Olsen have purchased themselves a plush new Los Angeles home, which they plan to use during breaks from NEW YORK UNIVERSITY.

The former FULL HOUSE stars, 18, are due to begin their studies at the prestigious institution next month (SEP04), and have spent close to $4 million (GBP2.2 million) on a four-bedroom, five-bathroom Westside home for when they visit their native city.

The home boasts walls of glass, city-to-ocean views and a pool.

The twins currently live with their family in Encino, California.
