Sonja Morgan Drops Price to $7Million for New York City Townhouse


6sqft.com:
Real Housewives of New York star Sonja Morgan has dropped the price of her Lenox Hill townhouse yet again, this time asking $7.2 million. It’s been a rocky few years for the former wife of J.P Morgan heir John Morgan. She’s been trying desperately to hang onto the pad since her devastating 2008 divorce followed by a pricey lawsuit, which forced her to file for bankruptcy in 2010.

The five-story home at 162 East 63rd Street, which the couple purchased in 1998 for $9.1 million, has seen its price fluctuate a few times, falling from $12 million to $7.25 million, then returning for nearly $10 million in 2013 before beginning its steady decent to its current asking price. And last we heard, the loopy reality star was renting the home out for $25,000 per month to cover taxes while she tried to sell. The show doesn’t exactly portray the five-bedroom home in the best light, so let’s take a look inside to see what it really has to offer.

The space is situated on a prominent townhouse block on the Upper East Side next to a parking garage, a detail many find to be a slight hindrance. The Morgans only renovated the home once during their 15-year stay, but the house still has some redeemable qualities. The garden level has a beautiful entry foyer, a living room with a wood-burning fireplace, and an office with French doors that open to the familiar landscaped garden.
