The New York City home where Ivana Trump died is being sold after failing to find a single buyer

Ivana Trump’s lavish Manhattan home remained vacant for more than a year after her death there in July 2022.

The 8,700-square-foot home, which served as a dentist’s office when Ivana bought it in 1992 after her divorce from Donald Trump, is listed for $26.5 million.

But after failing to receive a single bid, the price was reduced by a whopping $4 million. Versailles-inspired Lenox Hill estate has been relisted for $22.5 million.

Talk about a deal!

Unfortunately, even with the significant price cut, there’s still the problem of the tacky gold ceilings, pink marble floors, gold railings, leopard print carpet, gold hardware, crystal chandeliers, and gold-plated wallpaper.

The house was Ivana’s “charming idea,” Dennis Basso, a fashion designer and Ivana’s longtime partner, told The Real Deal, an online forum dedicated to New York real estate, last April.

β€œIt’s a beautiful facade,” he says. But no one is buying the place or renovating it. It may have been done by the best designer of the era, but no one with that kind of money wants a 30-year-old bathroom, and that’s how long it’s been in that apartment.

Since Ivana’s tragic death, the property has become a pilgrimage stop for MAGA obsessives, which has also undoubtedly been a deterrent for potential buyers.

According to the New York City Assessor’s Office, Ivana died after falling down a spiral staircase, sustaining a blunt force injury to her torso. The 73-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene, and investigators ruled her death an accident.

She was cremated and buried at Trump Golf Course in Bedminster, New Jersey.

In July, the Daily Mail obtained photos of her grave one year later, which appeared to be covered in grass and weeds.

After photos of the grave shocked the internet, a Trump spokesman said the soil still needed time to fully consolidate, and once that was done, a larger headstone would be installed.

But they did not provide an explanation as to why the cemetery was so poorly maintained in the meantime.

The Ivana townhouse listing is currently owned by J. Roger Erickson of Douglas Elliman and Adam D. Modlin of the Modlin Group.
