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 Lenox Hill townhouse owned by Sonja Morgan has experienced about as many ups and downs on the market as the “Real Housewives of New York City” star herself. After years of trying to sell, Morgan is now renting her five-story, five-bedroom home at 162 East 63rd Street for $32,000/month. The hilarious hot-mess, who was formerly married to J.P. Morgan heir John Morgan and went bankrupt following their divorce, is currently being sued by her bankruptcy attorneys for not paying them a court-ordered fee of $350,000. Built in 1899, the Upper East Side townhouse features an elegant foyer, a spacious living room with a gas fireplace and a lush landscaped garden.

Real Housewives of New York star Sonja Morgan has dropped the price of her Lenox Hill townhouse yet again, this time asking $7.2 million. It’s been a rocky few years for the former wife of J.P Morgan heir John Morgan. She’s been trying desperately to hang onto the pad since her devastating 2008 divorce followed by a pricey lawsuit, which forced her to file for bankruptcy in 2010.
The five-story home at 162 East 63rd Street, which the couple purchased in 1998 for $9.1 million, has seen its price fluctuate a few times, falling from $12 million to $7.25 million, then returning for nearly $10 million in 2013 before beginning its steady decent to its current asking price. And last we heard, the loopy reality star was renting the home out for $25,000 per month to cover taxes while she tried to sell. The show doesn’t exactly portray the five-bedroom home in the best light, so let’s take a look inside to see what it really has to offer.
