Nowadays, when Donald Trump speaks about his home, he might mean his $100 million penthouse at Trump Tower or Mar-a-Lago, his winter White House, but once upon a time, the president grew up in more modest digs. Trump spent his childhood in Jamaica Estates — an affluent, upper-middle class neighborhood in Queens, N.Y.
A mystery buyer recently purchased Trump’s childhood home for $2.14 million. The president’s father, Fred C. Trump, built the home in 1940. The Tudor-style brick and stucco home has 2,500-square-feet of main living space, with an 1,100-square-foot basement.
While the house may not include the 24-karat gold accents that famously adorn Trump’s NYC penthouse, the quaint home boasts 5 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, a living room with a fireplace, a five-car driveway with a detached two-car garage, and arched doorways and hardwood floors throughout.
According to Politico, real estate mogul Michael Davis bought the home for $1.39 million before Trump’s inauguration, then turned a 50 percent profit by flipping the house at an auction. The identity of the purchaser was obscured behind a limited liability corporation, Trump Birth House, and the sale closed on March 23.
