The Late Ivana Trump’s Estate Lists Her Ornate Manhattan Townhouse for $26.5M

Pricey Upper East Side townhouses list all the time, but this home has not been on the market since 1992. That’s when the late Ivana Trump purchased the 8,725-square-foot residence for $2.5 million, according to the Wall Street Journal, which was the same year of her divorce from former president Donald J. Trump. Following the model and socialite’s death, the townhouse has been listed by her estate for $26.5 million.

The WSJ reports that proceeds of the sale will go to her three children, Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump and Ivanka Trump, and that it was a favorite place of hers. While she held homes in Florida and France as well, Eric Trump shared with the publication that “it was the last possession in the world she would ever have gotten rid of.” It was here where Ms. Trump passed away in July.

Ornate and bold, there’s nothing subtle about the rich carpeting, intricate millwork, and ample gold accents. It all starts at the exterior of the limestone 1879-built mansion, where gold and black grilled doors set a grand tone. Stepping inside, maximalist decor abounds in the entrance hall with upholstered fabric walls and a crystal chandelier. A powder room with silk damask wallpaper sits nearby, as does an old-fashioned gated elevator that goes to all six levels.

The primary suite encompasses the entire third floor. Offering four more bedrooms as well, the townhouse also provides gathering areas such as a media room, 700 square feet of outdoor space, and vast living rooms.

Listed just before Donald Trump announced his third run for presidency yesterday, this is surely not the last time the Trump name will be in the headlines. J. Roger Erickson of Douglas Elliman and Adam Modlin of the Modlin Group share the lavish listing.
