Could $10,750,000 be the lucky number for Real Housewives of New York star Sonja Morgan? The socialite bought the townhouse at 162 East 63rd Street in 1998 for $9.1 million with her ex-husband John Adams Morgan (grandson to the J.P. Morgan). After divorcing in 2008, Sonja first listed the home for $12 million in 2009, with three separate listings over the next six years fluctuating between $7 and $9 million. In 2018, she began renting the home for $32,000/month. And as of this past November, Sonja switched the listing to Corcoran and listed it as both a rental and a sale.

The 4,645-square-foot home was built in 1899. At 18 feet wide, it’s a bit narrow, but there are five floors, five bedrooms, and five-and-a-half bathrooms.

Enter through a spacious foyer with a mosaic floor. From there, a small hallway has a coat closet and powder room and leads to the large living room, where you’ll find a gas fireplace. Off the living room is a lovely sitting room that opens through floor-to-ceiling French doors to the landscaped outdoor terrace, which is complete with a fountain fish pond and bluestone flooring.

On the parlor floor are a bedroom (currently configured as a library/home office), a formal dining room, and the kitchen.

The entire third floor is devoted to the master suite. In the rear, the bedroom has another fireplace. A custom storage solution separates a dressing room that has a street-facing Juliette balcony. There’s another closet in the hall, along with two walk-in closets. The master bath is truly spa-like, with custom marble floors, romantic crystal lighting, a vintage-style claw-foot tub, and a stand-up shower.

On the fourth floor is what seems to be a “his” master bath that’s just as large and luxurious as the one below. There’s another bedroom here that opens to a terrace.

The top floor holds the final two bedrooms, one of which has a wet bar.

As mentioned, the home is available as a $10,750,000 sale or a $32,000 a month rental. If rented (long- or short-term occupancy is okay), it can come fully furnished and, according to the listing, with full-service options such a butler, chef, driver, gardener, housekeepers, masseuse, personal trainer, yoga and pilates, turn-down service, or night valet.

For about the past year, Sonja has not been living in the house. After her daughter left for college, she moved to a contemporary apartment near Columbus Circle.
