Four months after Ivana Trump, the first ex-wife of former President Donald Trump, fell to her death inside her Upper East Side home, the opulent, five story Lenox Hill townhouse is up for sale for a staggering $26.5 million.
The massive 8,725 square foot residence, located at 10 East 64th Street between Fifth and Madison Avenues, had been home to the 73-year-old for three decades and is awash in gold trim with over-the-top luxury fixtures and decor spread across a total of seventeen rooms.
“My mom absolutely loved that house,” Ivana’s adult son Eric Trump told the Wall Street Journal, adding that the palatial interior design reflected his late mother’s “style and elegance.”
The pinnacle of luxury, the exterior of Ivana Trump’s townhouse is clad in limestone and features one-of-a-kind gold and black grilled doors at the entrance, according to the real estate listing.
“She was so comfortable there,” said Eric Trump, “It was the last possession in the world she would ever have gotten rid of.”
Step inside and things only get more lavish from there — rooms are decorated with crystal chandeliers while ornate crown moldings accent the sprawling space.
According to the listing agent, the Versailles-inspired dining room on the second floor of the townhouse features floor-to-ceiling windows and 10 and a half foot tall ceilings, while the entire third floor serves as the master bedroom.
Between the terrace attached to the bedroom and the garden in the rear, the home has a total of 700 feet of outdoor space.
“She used to go out on the private balcony every morning with coffee and she’d read the paper,” Eric Trump explained.
Alternate plans show that a new owner could also install a pool in the cellar of the townhouse.
The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner ruled Ms. Trump’s death to be accidental, saying she died from ‘blunt impact injuries of torso’– likely the result of a fall down the stairs.
As for who will be cashing in on the super-sized asking price once the townhouse sells — Eric, Don Jr. and Ivanka Trump are expected to split the proceeds.
