Ivana Trump’s classy spread is more lavish than you know. Inside you will find this elaborate stairway, an original fixture of the seven-story townhome that provides her a two-flight, curving commute down to the office. Ivana had them redo the ornate rod-iron and gold railing, and then she had artists flown in from Italy to paint a French-Roman garden scene mural which curves with the wide, magnificent staircase.
When she bought the place, she had to gut it. The plumbing was bad, the electricity was nonexistent, the place had been vacant for 12 years, so she ripped everything out and created a personal masterpiece out of the 1924 vintage townhouse. There’s plenty of room for her kids, Ivanka, Donald Jr., and Eric, to visit. Ivanka and her “glam”-kids stay often. And there’s a fireplace in each of the 12 – 15 rooms, the master suite features a glittering gold-embossed mantle and front decor. The original townhouse walls were decorated in a Chinese-style mural. Ivanka had them painstakingly restored by artists referred to her through connections at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. When it comes to gold and diamonds, there can never be enough for this Czech-born socialite! Her dining room is punctuated by an enormous chandelier, imported from Italy. The top floor of the townhouse, formerly three separate bedrooms, is converted to a personal gym with mirrored walls and state-of-the-art equipment. Another feature of extravagance, a must-have in this chic pad, is this room. It’s like a golden-wallpapered, walk-in closet that is the size of a large bedroom, adorned with crystal chandeliers and walled mirrors are the perfect dressing room for this stately fashionista. The lap of luxury.
Ivanka’s and Jared’s D.C. Digs
Moving closer to the action, as the two have become a power couple from inside the White House, Ivanka and Jared left their N.Y.C. penthouse and moved into this beautiful colonial 1923 Waddy Wood designed the mansion in the Kalorama section of Washington, D.C. in 2017. Looking like a Beautiful Homes and Gardens pinup, the property underwent indoor modernization filling the 7,000-square-foot home with sleek and contemporary, light and airy ambiance.
The upgrades were finished in 2014 by renowned architect Christian Zapatka. He renovated the six bedrooms, six (and a half) baths, five fireplaces, and the outdoor entertaining terraces. Rumor has it the Kushner’s are crammed into the place and are looking for a larger spread.
A Marla Maples Former Home
Donald Trump’s second ex-wife and mom of Tiffany had some pretty stylish digs. Though modest and scaled back compared with first wife, Ivana, Marla shuttled back and forth from her glitzy residences during her marriage. She leased a sleek East Side sublet for the times she was on the East Coast, and this exclusive Century City, luxury condominium, chock-full of upscale amenities, while on her own in California, when she had time to commit to her aspiring movie star career.
Other times, preferring to be clad in a more jeans-and-T-shirts style, she would weekend on Martha’s Vineyard with hubby, or stay a couple of nights at the high-rollers’ suite in Atlantic City’s Trump Plaza, sometimes chilling with the big “D” at the three-level penthouse in Aspen for $10,000 per week, helicoptering and limo-chauffeuring between.

Ivana’s Walk-In Closet
Another feature of extravagance, a must-have, in this chic pad, is this room. Located on the fifth floor, it’s like a golden-wallpapered, walk-in closet that is the size of a large bedroom. “My closet,” Ivana describes, “goes on and on and on. I call it Indochine because, by the time you get to the end of it, you might as well be in another continent.”
Gorgeous too, adorned with crystal chandeliers and walled mirrors, the perfect dressing room for this stately fashionista. Living in the lap of luxury.
