Ghislaine Maxwell — the British socialite and publishing heiress who allegedly fixed up billionaire Jeffrey Epstein with young girls — has listed her Upper East Side mansion for $19 million.

Maxwell bought the home at 116 East 65th Street for $5 million in 2000, according to the New York Daily News. The townhouse, located between Park and Lexington avenues, includes six bedrooms, nine wood-burning fireplaces, an elevator as well a landscaped back yard. The property includes another 1,000 square feet of development rights, the newspaper reported.

Douglas Elliman’s Lauren Muss and Shari Scharfer-Rollins have the listing.
