Off the market!
Sonja Morgan has been forced to take her Upper East Side townhouse off the market after eight years without an offer.
The Real Housewives of New York star initially listed the home in 2013 for $9.95 million. Over the years, the home’s sale price was cut several times, including a price tag drop to $7.2 million in 2015.
After not getting any bites on the home, she took a different approach in 2018 when she tried renting out the home for $32,000 a month.
“At this point, this house is nothing more than a financial drain, an emotional drain,” Sonja explained on Season 12 of RHONY.
Last summer, Sonja re-listed the property for $$8.75 million following an extensive remodel. However, after a year on the market, Sonja delisted the property last week.
During season 13 of RHONY, Sonja revealed how she gave up her apartment in Columbus Circle and moved back into her townhouse amid the pandemic.
“I had to move back here because I rented the apartment while this [townhouse] was rented, but when the pandemic struck, forget it! This wasn’t rented or sold. I had to move back here,” Sonja explained. “If no one’s renting the townhouse, I can’t be shelling out cash every month to rent my little pied-à-terre in Columbus Circle . . . I am a guest in my own house until this gets rented or sold.”
It’s expected that Sonja will put the home back on the market soon.
Sonja’s 5,500 square foot, 5-floor townhouse, located on 63rd street, features an elevator, five bedrooms, and six bathrooms.
“Among the glories of this house are the custom mosaic floors in the full-width entryway and the two large master baths with nautical motifs personal to the Morgan family. Mr. Morgan, his father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, J.P. Morgan, were all noted yachtsmen and Commodores of the New York Yacht Club,” the listing previously stated.
Other property amenities include a sauna, a gym, a library, and an outdoor space with a landscaped garden that spans 575 square feet. There is also a 150-square-foot terrace located on the fourth floor.
