Ivana Trump’s five-story limestone townhouse on the Upper East Side just got a big price cut after being on the market for nearly a year. The estate of the late businesswoman, who was found dead in the home last July, listed the property at 10 East 64th Street last November for $26,500,000. Last week, as CityRealty notes, the Lenox Hill home listed for $22,500,000, a price cut of $4 million. Ivana purchased the townhouse in the early 1990s for around $2,500,000 following her divorce from Donald Trump, as 6sqft previously reported.
Over her 30+ year residency, Trump transformed the 17-room, 20-foot-wide home into a “real-estate personification of her maximalist self,” according to the New York Post. Throughout the home, described in the listing as “Versailles-inspired,” are plenty of over-the-top features, including gold accents and fixtures, animal print, and huge chandeliers.
The five-bedroom townhouse spans 8,700 square feet across six levels, including a cellar. The entrance is through double doors that lead into a grand entry gallery with an Italian crystal chandelier and upholstered walls. A curved marble-carpeted staircase connects to the home’s upper floors, while those who can’t or don’t want to walk can use a gated elevator, which accesses every floor.
“My mom absolutely loved that house,” Eric Trump told the Wall Street Journal last year. According to the WSJ, the proceeds of the home’s sale will go to Eric, Donald Trump Jr., and Ivanka Trump.
Situated on the home’s second floor overlooking East 64th Street, the main living room boasts a soaring ceiling decorated with gold fabric and ornate moldings. The room also features a gold-embossed marble fireplace and four chandeliers.
The dining room is surrounded by gold walls. There are two seating areas within the space, one of which is set up next to floor-to-ceiling windows that look out onto a courtyard.
On the third floor, guests can find a library decorated from floor to ceiling with leopard print and more gold accents. A doll on one of the room’s sofas is said to have been modeled after Ivanka herself, according to the WSJ.
Also located on the third level is the primary suite, which has a softer aesthetic compared to the rest of the home. Styled with lots of light pinks and greens, the room features a mural and private access to a terrace through French doors. The bathroom is decked out in pink Onyx marble, mirrors, and touches of gold, with an ensuite bath with a double sink, a soaking tub, and a separate water closet.
The fourth floor includes three more bedrooms, with an additional guest room with an ensuite bath located on the top floor.
Other features include a media room, a garden, a basement with a sauna, a laundry room, and extra storage space.
Constructed in 1879, the townhouse has a columned facade, mansard roof, and gold and black grilled doors. It is located within the Upper East Side Historic District between Fifth and Madison Avenues, with 10 East 64th Street being one of the most lavish mansions on the block.
