It looks as though heartbreak leads to real estate for Alexa Chung. The British sweetheart and MTV golden girl has purchased an apartment in the East Village only weeks after breaking up with her musician boyfriend and moving out of their Williamsburg apartment.

Ms. Chung bought on East Third Street. According to a property listing by Corcoran agents Lindsay Barton Barrett and Trisha Lawton, the one-bedroom, one-bath has extensive closet space, perfect for Ms. Chung’s extensive wardrobe.

A floorplan shows that Ms. Chung will be able to flop down in a comfortable 190-square-foot bedroom. The building is also chock-full of architectural details sure to delight her, including parquet floors and original moldings; and the art-deco edifice itself makes quite an impression.

Best of all, the home is located near Whole Foods, so Ms. Chung could buy all the overpriced health food her heart desires.

She paid $600,000 for the 719-square-foot apartment. Alexa Chung Buys in the East Village
