Ivana Trump’s New York City townhouse is on the market for $26.5 million just four months after she was found dead at the bottom of the opulent winding staircase of the lavish property. 

Proceeds from the sale of the 8,725-square-foot home on 10 East 64th Street in Manhattan are set to be split between Ivana’s three children: Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump and, Ivanka Trump.

Ivana bought the Upper East Side townhouse for $2.5 million in 1992, the same year her divorce was finalized from former President Donald Trump.

Following news of the listing reported by The Wall Street Journal, one prominent broker noted that the home is ‘overpriced’ and would need a ‘total renovation.’

Ivana was found at the bottom the stairs of the home in July with blunt impact injuries to her torso. The 73-year-old’s death was ruled an accident.

The Upper East Side limestone home, which is listed with Adam Modlin of the Modlin Group and Roger Erickson of Douglas Elliman, has five bedrooms but could be renovated for more, the agents said. 

Two of the floors are divided into several rooms, but the agents said those spaces could be combined to take advantage of the full width of the 20-foot-wide townhouse.

The agents also noted that the new owners will want to do a significant renovation, which echoes a broker’s sentiment that a renovation is needed. 

While Ivana’s children are asking for the full $26.5 million for the regal townhouse, an Upper East Side broker predicted it’ll sell for a lot less. 

‘It needs a total renovation,’ according to Curbed. ‘I think it will sell for $17 million or $18 million,’ adding that isn’t so radically overpriced that it will scare off serious buyers.

The décor of the townhouse is like stepping back into the 1980s, the Journal reported, with gold fixtures throughout the home, some of which is decked out in leopard print, pink marble, crimson carpet and a trompe-l’oeil Renaissance garden on the sweeping, curved staircase in the entryway.

There is a Versailles-inspired dining room that features a floor-to-ceiling window overlooking the interior private courtyard, according to the listing.

The Journal reported that Eric Trump once said that his mother had plans drawn up for a pool to be built in the basement, but changed her mind. The basement already includes a contemporary Swedish sauna. 

There is also a media room on the first floor with an adjacent kitchen and home office, as well as a garden and a huge basement with a laundry room and ample storage.

Ivana’s death earlier this summer sent shockwaves through the Trump family, with son Eric Trump saying as he left Ivana’s townhouse that it was ‘a very sad day, a very sad day.’

The New York City medical examiner’s office said that Ivana died accidentally from blunt impact injuries to her torso in an apparent fall.

Ivana had grown increasingly frail during more than two years of isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic, friends say, and the socialite’s close confidante Nikki Haskell says she had feared an accident on the stairs.

‘I have to tell you something — that has always been my fear. She had one of those really beautiful staircases that was impossible to walk down,’ Haskell told Extra back in July.

‘Narrow in the inside and wider as it got out. I was always afraid that she would fall. I don’t know what happened, but it’s not hard for me to believe that’s what happened — treacherous stairs,’ added Haskell.

She was last seen alive when she ventured out to her favorite neighborhood restaurant, just a few doors down from her home.

Around 6pm, Trump and her health aide stopped in Alesti on East 64th Street, where the socialite ordered soup to be delivered to her home, the New York Post reported.

Ivana was very popular with local businesses, and had been due to have her hair styled at 2pm on the day of her death. Staff there said she appeared in decent health, and was looking forward to an upcoming trip to St Tropez.
