The Manhattan penthouse that belonged to the late Ivana Trump, resplendent in its gold and leopard print interiors that loudly proclaim it as the residence of a member of the Trump family (albeit by marriage), has been listed for an asking price of $26.5 million.
Stepping inside the five-story penthouse's gold entryway is "like stepping back in time to the 1980s," the heyday of her marriage to former President Donald Trump. The residence's unique style "is reflective of the glamorous, over-the-top aesthetic that helped define that era and the Trump real-estate portfolio." Ivana purchase the townhome in 1992 for $2.5 million after completing divorce proceedings with her famous/infamous ex-husband.
Standing outside the limestone townhouse, you might never guess that the inside is such a borderline garish display of over-the-top luxury, with plenty of room for however many swanky parties the home's next owner might want to throw. The property boasts more than 8,700 square feet of interior space, with five bedrooms and six bathrooms, but that doesn't really capture the penthouse's lavish, top-of-the-line luxury in every corner of every room. Travel between the home's five floors with your choice of old-fashioned birdcage elevator or a red-carpeted marble staircase, or just hang out in the living room, which Trump humorously described in her 2017 book "Raising Trump" as being "how Louis XVI would have lived if he had had money."
The entire third floor is given over to the penthouse's primary suite, described like this in the property's official listing:
"Occupying the entire third floor, the primary suite consists of an enormous, south-facing bedroom graced by a meticulously restored mural, and a private terrace accessed through three sets of charming French doors. An ensuite bathroom clad in pink Onyx marble and gold hardware boasts a double sink, oversized soaking tub, mirrored vanity and separate water closet. Across the floor, a bold, exotic office swathed in leopard print boasts an Onyx and gold fireplace and sits next to an oversized walk-in closet."
Of course, a home like this really has to be seen to be believed, and you can do just that by taking a look at the video below, from Evan Joseph on Vimeo:
