Sonja Morgan’s Townhouse: If At First It Doesn’t Sell, Raise The Price

Real New York Housewife Sonja Morgan, the former San Pietro restaurant hostess who,  in the grand  tradition of “socialites” everywhere, nabbed a john-Morgan1much older (30+ years) and much richer hubby, is trying again. It seems the bankrupt blonde divorcee owes nearly $20 million in debt including a judgment for a movie deal gone sour and has re-listed  her UES 5 bedroom townhouse. Will the third time be the charm or have all those busted toilet jokes on RHONY ruined the house’s rep forever?  Lackluster decor and a tired, almost thrift shop vibe don’t help.

Via Curbed:

“162 East 63rd Streetmorgan-pic-final 440x660-1 440x660-2 440x660-3 440x660-4 440x660, a five-story, single-family Lenox Hill townhouse, is on its third brokerage in four years, but it’s back to a familiar price point. Purchased by its current LLC-shielded owner for $9.1 million in 1998, the house was renovated and put back on the market a decade later for $12 million. Nobody bit, so it was delisted and returned the following year for $9.25 million, then spent another year getting chopped all the way down to $7.25 million before being delisted once again. Now it’s back again for $9,950,000, making this both a PriceChopper and a PriceUpper. It doesn’t appear that any further renovations have been done since the the original 2008 listing, but now that the market has recovered, its chances of finding a buyer should increase significantly. The only mystery here is what possessed the owners to pay $9.1 million for a 4,500-square-foot, un-renovated Lenox Hill townhouse in 1998.”
