The late Ivana Tump’s historic limestone residence has now been available on the market for nearly a full 12 months — but as a substitute of getting a buyer, it’s gotten a price cut.
On Thursday, in keeping with a StreetEasy listing update, the gilded abode took a 15% price cut and is now asking $22.5 million — $4 million lower than its initial ask.
Trump — who passed away last July, aged 73, her body found at the underside of the Eeast sixty fourth Street property’s grand staircase — lived on the address until her last, and reportedly adored the 8,725-square-foot spread.
“My mom absolutely loved that house,” her son, Eric Trump, told the Wall Street Journal last 12 months, adding that the furniture could possibly be negotiated for inclusion within the sale, the proceeds of which might go to Eric and the opposite two children she shared with Donald Trump: Donald Jr. and Ivanka, who were raised there.
(Another of Ivana’s properties, meanwhile, was left to her ex-nanny.)
The late Czech-American businesswoman and socialite purchased the historic limestone rowhouse following the finalization of her divorce from the previous president in 1992, paying $2.5 million (the equivalent of about $5.4 million today).
During her many years living on the palatial 17-room, 20-foot-wide townhouse, Ivana is alleged to have transformed the space right into a real-estate personification of her maximalist self.
Throughout the five-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom, six-story house is grandeur galore, from a Pepto Bismol-pink mirrored bath to an animal print-covered library, an abundance of gold accents and fixtures, chandeliers aplenty and a Versailles-inspired dining room.
In her 2017 book “Raising Trump,” Ivana described one front room as “how Louis XVI would have lived if he had had money.”
As well, there’s a back garden, a fireplace-equipped primary bedroom — and while there’s no full kitchen (Ivana openly admitted she didn’t cook much in her later years), there are two small galley-style ones.
“It was the last possession on this planet she would ever have gotten rid of,” Eric Trump added.
