Newly Listed: Skater Oksana Baiul’s New Hope Colonial

Remember delicate little dove-like Oksana Baiul? She earned the adoration of the world during the 1994 Winter Olympics, at which she won the Gold Medal in figure skating for Ukraine. She’s had her ups and downs since then, but as the Wall Street Journal ‘s Developments blog said yesterday in profiling the sale of her New Hope home, she’s also become a real estate investor.

In this case, Baiul bought the four-bedroom/three-and-a-half bath house a little more than a year ago for $580,000 and is now asking $875,000.
