After a three-year interval, the “Real Housewives of New York City” star Sonja Morgan has relisted her Upper East Side townhouse for $9.95 million — a considerably higher sum than the last asking price, according to StreetEasy.

The reality television star and ex-wife of John Adams Morgan, businessman and descendant of the banker J.P. Morgan, listed the property at 162 East 63rd Street several times, starting in 2008. She finally pulled it from the market in March 2010, after dropping its price to from $12 million to $7.25 million. The property is now listed with Kedakai Lipton and Barbara Stone of the Corcoran Group.

Last spring, the “Real Housewife” told The Real Deal that she had decided against selling it, despite mounting legal bills related to Her Divorce And A Court ordered judgment against her. Film company Hannibal Pictures had sued her for breach of contract after she allegedly reneged on a deal to finance a film through her production company, Sonja Productions.

She said she wanted to keep the property in order to provide stability for her then 11-year-old daughter. She also noted that the house is easy to maintain and said she’d fixed one of the toilets earlier that day.

“I’m the queen of toilets,” she quipped.

Morgan’s ex-husband bought the property in 1998 for $9.1 million, listing his address on public documents as Caritas Island, his private island in Connecticut, property records show.

The 4,500-square-foot, five-story single-family home has five bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms and a south-facing garden, according to the listing. It also has a library, four fireplaces, a sound system and a full security system with an intercom.

The brokers declined to comment on the listing. Morgan, who has appeared regularly in the “Real Housewives” series since its third season, could not immediately be reached.
