People may be laughing at him for his goofy haircut but billionaire Donald Trump definitely has the last laugh. If his $10 billion net worth doesn’t intimidate you, perhaps his desire for the top position in the country just might.
As a real estate mogul himself, Trump has amassed a great number of private mansions in New York and in other parts of the country. Could the White House be his next address?
Before the US Presidential elections start, let’s take a look at the list of homes Trump owns.
#8: Trump Tower
When he’s in New York, Trump stays at his three-level penthouse situated at 725 Fifth Ave. The penthouse has a beautiful view of Central Park. Its interior resembles the Palace of Versailles and is decked out with 24-carat gold and diamond accents, hand-painted ceiling murals, and detailed marble hoards. The address is considered as one of NYC’s most valuable property and could easily sell for $100 million.
#7: Mar-a-Lago Country Club
If the White House is said to be worth around $317 million, Trump’s 17-acre property in Palm Beach costs around $250 million. The Mar-a-Lago country club used to be a private mansion but now serves as a hotel. It has a 20,000-square feet ballroom where several Trump weddings have taken place. Famous guests of the property include Michael Jackson, Oprah, and Celine Dion. It was once declared as a national landmark in 1980.
#6: Trump Parc & Trump Park Avenue
Oh and apart from his palatial penthouse at the Trump Tower, the billionaire owns up to 40 other apartments in Manhattan. He amassed these homes when he built properties from scratch and decided to keep some for his own. According to reports, Trump recently sold one of the penthouses in Trump Park Avenue for $21 million. His daughter, Ivanka, owns a pad at the same building where she lives with her husband Jared Kushner and their two children.
#5: Seven Springs
In 1996, Trump purchased a property in Bedford, New York called Seven Springs for $7.5 million. The property contained 60 rooms, 15 bedrooms, 2 servant wings, 3 pools, a bowling alley and over 230 acres of land. There were plans to transform the property into a Trump-branded golf course but unfortunately didn’t push through. It is currently used as a private retreat home by the family.
#4: Beverly Hills Mansion
Whenever Trump or his family is in Beverly Hills, they stay at their massive 6-bedroom, 5-bathroom Colonial mansion. Situated in the heart of Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, the property has a flood-lit tennis court, library, media room, spa, pool, marble floors and a gorgeous staircase.
#3: Trump Vineyard Estates
Trump also owns a 2,000-acre property in Charlottesville, VA; which he purchased at a bargain $14.4 million after the widow of the former richest person in America defaulted on her loans. Called Trump Vineyard Estates, the property has a 23,000-square feet mansion with a winery and vineyard next to it.
#2: Maison de L’Amitie
In 2004, Trump purchased a 60,000 square feet property called Maison de L’Amitie in Palm Beach, Florida. He awarded Kendra Todd (The Appentrice 3 winner) $25 million to renovate the property. Trump later sold this property to Dmitry Rybolovlev for $95 million in 2010. The property came with 500 feet of ocean, enormous bathrooms, and a garage fit for 50 cars.
#1: Trump National Golf Course
While overseeing the construction of Trump National Golf Course in Rancho Palos Verdes, California, Trump stayed at an estate he sold for $7.15 million. The property overlooks the Pacific Ocean on one side and the new golf course. Today, Trump National Golf Course is the third largest employer in the area, having 300 people on its payroll.
