Ivana Trump's townhouse – which she purchased the same year she divorced Donald Trump – is on the market for $26.5 million.
The late socialite, who passed away in July this year, ensured her townhouse mirrored her opulent style – with pink marble, fringed furnishings, and an abundance of leopard print as standard. Today, the home still showcases these distinct design decisions, which sit in tribute to the woman who owned the home since 1992.
Located in the prestigious Lenox Hill neighborhood in the Upper East Side, the property, with its limestone facade, passes as one of the world's best homes – before you even reach the main living spaces.
The Czech-born American businesswoman and socialite had lived in Canada in the 1970s before relocating to the United States and marrying the former president in 1977. The couple lived together in a waterfront mansion in Greenwich until their divorce, when Ivana bought this property. Meanwhile, Donald Trump's property portfolio expanded separately. Here, we tour the opulent estate.
Upon entering the townhouse, you are greeted by an almost-regal entryway that immediately sets the tone for the rest of the property.
Notable entryway ideas include the red and gold upholstered walls that are complemented by a large chandelier, a Romanesque statue, and a piano in the corner of the room.
Beyond the entrance level, the second floor leads to the main living spaces, where the color ideas change from deep red to green. However, much like the entryway, this space is bathed in gold and exhibits a collection of antiques and ornate figurines that make the space feel more personal to Ivana.
Other living room ideas are seen in the 'library' space (on the third floor), which is less green but much more animal print orientated. This room pays true homage to the leopard – complete with a mural of two playful leopards and an overflow of soft furnishings.
These brown and yellow hues are emphasized gold which makes a frequent appearance throughout the space, including around photo frames and on the chandelier.
The bedroom ideas are similarly as opulent, featuring an ever-eclectic color scheme – with lighter pinks, greens, and, of course, gold. The four-poster bed continues this aesthetic, as does the Chinese wallpaper and the statement fireplace, which gives the home a slightly more traditional feel.
The en-suite bathroom continues this grandeur further. Stand-out features include the pink-tainted marble and the double sinks that sit adjacent to the bathroom. The faucets and hardware are also gold-hued naturally.
Roger Erickson of Douglas Elliman currently holds the listing.
