A handful of months following Ivana Trump’s dying there this summer time, her townhouse at 10 E. 64th Avenue has strike the industry, The Wall Road Journal reviews. Her little ones, Eric, Ivanka, and Donald Jr., are inquiring for an bold $26.5 million, to be split involving the a few of them. The 5-tale townhouse, which Ivana acquired for $2.5 million in 1992 soon right after her divorce from Donald Trump, appears to be pretty considerably as it did 30 a long time back when Trump redid the home with such touches as a palatial Pepto Bismol–hued marble bathroom and a whole lot of leopard print.

The Upper East Aspect property, listed with Adam Modlin of the Modlin Group and Roger Erickson of Douglas Elliman, is 20 toes vast — conventional for a townhouse — nevertheless it does not resemble its neighbors a great deal or else. A 1920s renovation replaced the brownstone front and stoop with limestone and columns. The inside of is also, very well, unique. The home is currently being proven with Ivana’s décor and furnishings in put — with an abundance of gold fixtures, a trompe-l’oeil Renaissance back garden on the staircase, crimson carpets, and an ornate cover mattress — minus Ivana’s muddle, this sort of as the stacks of the Might 1990 concern of Vogue on whose protect she appeared.

One particular well known Upper East Side broker pointed out the dwelling is overpriced. “It demands a whole renovation. I think it will sell for $17 million or $18 million,” he predicted. But, he included, it isn’t so radically overpriced that it will scare off major purchasers.

Of program, exaggerating the value of genuine estate is a Trump loved ones custom, and Ivana’s little ones look to be banking on their title commanding a high quality. But customers really do not shell out for provenance, the broker reported — just seem at what a tricky time J.Lo has experienced providing her position in Nomad. (It’s a little bit of a internet marketing boost, but that’s about it.) And even if potential buyers did, any attract conferred by the property’s having belonged to Ivana is canceled out by the point that she died slipping down its stairs.

The listing brokers acknowledged to the Journal that most potential buyers (with the exception of Ivana fanatics with $30 million to melt away) will want to do a renovation — probable an extensive one outside of incorporating a pool in the basement to go with the existing sauna, as Eric Trump recommended to the paper. The 8,725-square-foot residence lacks a complete-dimensions kitchen as a substitute, it has two galley kitchens. Fitting for a girl whose last meal was very likely the takeout soup fetched by her housekeeper.
