Hollywood star Julia Roberts has sold her Greenwich Village, New York, apartment to actress Ellen Barkin.

The actress, who is expecting twins with husband DANNY MODER, sold the nine-room property for close to the $5 million (GBP2.8 million) asking price.

Barkin and husband Ron Perelman have treated themselves to the apartment as a reward for reuniting after briefly splitting last summer (04).

The old Roberts place features beamed ceilings and a panelled library.
