Billionaire businessman, and as of this week, official Republican presidential nominee
, Donald Trump owns homes all over the world — including many in New York City
alone. He is a real estate mogul, after all. But growing up, Trump lived in a 2,000-square-foot home in Queens — and that home can now be yours. If you have the money, of course. (And presumably, if you're not a loser.)
The six-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath, which is currently owned by a New York City restauranteur, was recently listed by Laffey Fine Homes
for $1.65 million. It was built in 1940 by Trump's father, Fred Trump, who was also a real estate developer. The house, along with its detached two-car garage, sits on a 4,800-square-foot lot in Jamaica Estates. The listing describes many desirable features of the Tudor-style home, including its formal dining room, fully finished basement, and proximity to the subway. But perhaps most notably, it mentions that the property is “the birthplace of presidential candidate Donald Trump.”
The real estate agent selling the house, Howard Kaminowitz
, told Newsday
that if Trump is elected, the home "would automatically become a historic site." Even if Trump isn't elected, it still has a pretty interesting backstory. Plus, who doesn't love a screened-in patio with a summer kitchen? Click through to see inside the house that built Trump.
