Ivana Trump made the news after her death last year at age 73 when it was revealed that her ex-husband Donald Trump had buried her in a very modest grave at his golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey. Now she’s making headlines again for her not-at-all modest Lenox Hill townhouse, which is still up for sale after more than two months on the market.
The black-and-gold grilled doors on the six-story, almost 9,000-square-foot limestone-clad townhouse only hint at the garish profusion of fabrics, finishes, and furnishings inside. In true Trump fashion, the interiors are a sight to behold.
The formal gallery, pictured at top, sports gilded paneling and an impossibly large chandelier decked out in Italian crystals that emerges from a fabric-tented ceiling.
On the second floor (accessed via a marble staircase) there’s a cream-and-yellow Versailles-meets-Vegas dining room where guests can gaze into an interior courtyard.
For those who don’t do stairs, a birdcage-style elevator leads to floors above. On the third floor primary suite, a safari theme prevails with a leopard-print library and office with a black-and-gold fireplace. A random blonde doll sitting on the couch adds a lived-in touch to the staging photos.
The primary bedroom’s en suite bathroom is pure 1980s pastel pink, with Onxy marble galore, double sinks, and soaking tub, and more mirrors than a fun house.
An expansive French-doored terrace leads into the comparatively subdued primary bedroom. The overall ambiance of the home is well-captured in the video walkthrough below:
The home, at 10 East 64th Street between Madison and Fifth avenues, hit the market in November 2022 with an asking price of $26.5 million.
