Sonja Morgan is relisting her New York townhouse for $8.75 million

Sonja Morgan is bringing the big guns when it comes to selling her townhouse this time around.

On and off the market over the past 10 years with various real estate agencies, the “Real Housewives of New York” star has decided to re-list her Upper East Side pad — for $8.75 million — but this time with someone one that specializes in privately owned townhouses.

After a year off the market, the Post first reported that Thomas Wexler, a 35-year real estate veteran with brokerage firm Leslie J. Garfield & Co., now holds the listing.

“Back when Sonja Morgan (and her husband) bought the house, we were representing the sellers at the time,” Wexler told the Post. “We sold this house three times before, a long time ago, including the time we sold it to Sonja.”

“She now has the best townhouse broker you can find anywhere,” Wexler said with a laugh. “I think it’s the right time to bring it to market. The house has a good price and it should sell.

Morgan remodeled the house during the pandemic.

The townhouse spans 4,650 square feet and consists of five stories.

Now listed at $8.75 million, the five-story townhouse has four bedrooms and six bathrooms covering 4,650 square feet.

Features include wood-burning fireplaces in every room, mosaic hardwood floors, and oversized windows.

The establishment includes an elevator, a sauna, a bar with sink and a gym.

On the first level is a manicured garden 35 feet deep with a fountain and koi pond, and a solarium with floor-to-ceiling windows. On the second level is the formal dining room with a marble fireplace housing a wood-burning fireplace, a kitchen with dining area, and a bedroom that can be converted into an office if desired. The third level houses the master suite with a living room and a balcony that overlooks the garden.

On the fourth floor is another bedroom with a dressing room and a large terrace. The top floor contains two further bedrooms and the bar. It also holds the washer/dryer area.

Sonja first listed the home for sale in 2013 for $9.95 million amid her divorce from JP Morgan heir John A. Morgan.

Morgan, 58, found a buyer in 2017 but decided to turn the offer down because she felt her daughter, Quincy, needed stability while going through separation from her parents.

The reality TV star and entrepreneur was allowed to keep the townhouse in 2015 after settling her five-year contract bankruptcy case following his divorce.

But now she hopes this will be the last time she has to put the house on the market.

“At this point, this house is nothing more than a financial escape, an emotional escape,” she explained on Season 12 of “Real Housewives of New York.”
