The divorce of Janice Schacter from Ira Schacter, her Playboy model-dating lawyer ex-husband, has resulted in an Upper East Side real estate opportunity.

The couple’s marital home, a posh 78th Street townhouse, has hit the market for $6.65 million, according to the New York Daily News.

The couple purchased the 3,000-square-foot, four-story home, at 233 East 78th Street, for just $800,000 in 1995.

“It’s a beautiful home,” Janice Schacter told the Daily News. “I wish only happiness to whoever purchases it. My kids used to swim in the fountain in the garden when they were little. When you’re out there, it’s like you’re sitting in the south of France.” [NYDN]Christopher Cameron
