Ivana Trump's lavish New York townhouse up for sale

A lavish New York townhouse that once belonged to Donald Trump's late ex-wife Ivana Trump is up for sale for $26 million (£21.5 million).

The six-story, 8,725-square-foot home reflects Ivana’s personality, extravagant style, and passion for interior design with gold leaf, crystal chandeliers, pink marble, and animal-print wall coverings. A sweeping, curved marble staircase leads to the second-floor entertainment level.

There are soaring ceilings, gilded fireplaces, and a sumptuous Versailles-inspired dining room with floor-to-ceiling windows looking out onto the private interior courtyard. An old-fashioned, birdcage-style elevator leads to the upper floors. The third level is devoted to the spectacular main suite complete with a painted mural, a leopard-print library, and a private terrace. It also includes a media room, two offices, and basement sauna.

The limestone townhouse, located on the Upper East Side, was built in 1879.

The property, as revealed by TopTenRealEstates.com, is directly across from the former mansion of Ivana’s friend Donatella Versace and walking distance from Central Park and the posh shops of Madison Avenue.

Other celebs who live nearby include Mariah Carey, Ricky Martin, Samuel L. Jackson, Mia Farrow, and Drew Barrymore.

Former model Ivana - mother of Ivanka, Donald Jr, and Eric Trump - died at the age of 73 in July 2022.
