- Ivana purchased the property for US$2.5 million soon after her divorce from the Donald in 1992.
KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 20): Ivana Trump's “opulent Manhattan townhouse” has been put on the market US$26.5 million (RM113.64 million), according to a report from the real estate website TopTenRealEstateDeals.com.
The ex-wife of the 45th president of the US, Donald Trump, Ivana is also the mother of Ivanka, Donald Jr and Eric.
Ivana passed away last July at the age of 73 and her estate has therefore placed her Manhattan home on the market.
According to the same report, Ivana purchased the property for US$2.5 million soon after her divorce from the Donald in 1992.
The limestone townhouse was constructed in 1879 and has a columned facade, mansard roof, and “one-of-a-kind, gold-and-black grilled” doors.
Located on New York’s Upper East Side between 5th and Madison Avenues, it is directly across from the former mansion of Ivana’s friend Donnatella Versace and within walking distance to Central Park, shops on Madison Avenue, world-class dining and famous museums.
The townhouse also has “ornate double doors” that “open onto a stately formal gallery with blood-red carpets, gilded panelling and an immense Italian crystal chandelier”.
“A sweeping, curved marble staircase leads to the second floor entertainment level, where soaring ceilings, gilded fireplaces, and a sumptuous Versailles-inspired dining room with floor-to-ceiling windows looking out onto the private interior courtyard hosted famous actors, luminaries from all industries, and even royalty,” stated TopTenRealEstateDeals.com.
The third level is made up mainly of a “spectacular primary suite complete with a painted mural, a leopard-print library, a private terrace with stunning French doors, and an opulent executive office clad in leopard print complete with a gold-and-black marble fireplace”.
Meanwhile, the en-suite bathroom has “pink Onyx marble with gold hardware, and includes an enormous soaking tub, double sinks and mirrored vanity”.
Five additional bedrooms “each with its own chic style” occupy the next two floors, plus a media room, second office, and basement Swedish sauna.
