The Upper East Side home has been listed with Adam Modlin of the Modlin Group and Roger Erickson of Douglas Elliman with an asking price of US$26.5 million (approximately £22.3 million).
Now, their three children, Eric, Ivanka and Donald Jr are looking to sell the home and split the money between them, according to reports.
But Ivana left her mark on the townhouse by decking out its interiors with opulence and lavish furnishings, a reflection of her ex-husband’s own taste when it comes to decorating his real estate portfolio.
We take a closer look at the palatial interiors of Ivana’s townhouse:
The entrance hall
The limestone columns and “one-of-a-kind” black and gold grilled doors of Ivana’s former home give way to bright red carpets and an Italian crystal chandelier.
Upholstered fabric walls drape the entrance hall in the same blood red as the carpet with ornate gold patterns. The carpet extends up a curved marble staircase that features a painted mural. There is also a birdcage elevator that residents can use to get up and down all five storeys of the house.
The living room
Up on the second floor, a living room located at the front of the property features a “gold-embossed marble fireplace and ornate crown mouldings”. Another crystal chandelier – the first of four on this floor – hangs from a gold draped ceiling, above dark green soft furnishings with red and gold accents.
The dining room
According to the listing on the Modlin Group’s website, the dining room is inspired by Versailles, as is evidenced by the long 10-seater dining table with golden yellow chairs, the gilded ceiling and walls that boast imagery of cherubs, and the bespoke built-in cabinets.
This room features a floor-to-ceiling window that overlooks an interior private courtyard. The main kitchen is tucked off to the side of the dining room and has a full suit of appliances and storage.
Of the five bedrooms in Ivana’s townhouse, her master bedroom is the largest, but surprisingly it is the least ostentatious one. A cream white, sage green and pale pink theme gives the room a much softer look compared to the rest of the home.
However, Ivana certainly did not skimp on lavish furniture and decorations as it features a four-poster bed and crystal chandelier, as well as a meticulously restored mural.
The bedroom has access to a private terrace that can be accessed through three sets of French doors.
Three more bedrooms are located on the fourth floor. One features oak panels and its own dressing room, while the others, located on the north side, give the residents a view of 64th Street.
On the top floor is a large guest bedroom with an ensuite bathroom.
It seems as though Ivana kept all her love for opulence for her bathroom rather than her bedroom. Her ensuite is almost entirely made with pink marble from the huge double sink to the edges of the oversized “soaking tub”, as well as the floor.
Panels of mirrors reflect the bathroom every which way and gold hardware make the finishing touches.
There are four other bathrooms in the townhouse, but none are as fantastical as this one.
Described as “bold” and “exotic”, Ivana’s office is not for the faint of heart. Leopard print reigns supreme here, covering the sofas, armchairs, tables, carpet, and even panels on the walls. The parts of the room that aren’t swathed in leopard print are otherwise painted black or gold.
Ivana’s youngest son, Eric, told WSJ that the house reflected his mother’s “style and elegance” and that its opulence “embodied Ivana Trump.
“My mum absolutely loved that house,” he said. “She wasn’t a ‘let’s throw on a pair of sweatpants’ kind of person. She believed in looking good.”
