Photos: Donald Trump’s $17 Million Caribbean Mansion Is Still on the Market
President Trump is no stranger to real estate. From developing to dwelling in some of the most luxurious properties in the world, Trump has always had a knack for the finer things in life. After receiving a substantial $40 million post-graduation inheritance from his father in 1974, Trump quickly moved into his family’s real estate business. He branded the heck out of his name, and whether you’re a supporter or not, he’s been wildly successful in his career.
Besides his Trump Tower three-level penthouse in New York City, the president also enjoys his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, his 60-room Seven Springs, Bedford, New York mansion, his winery in Virginia, and of course his New Jersey golf course. But currently, Trump is trying to offload his residence on the Caribbean island of St. Martin known as Le Château des Palmiers. And the even better news? Hurricane Irma didn’t wreck it.
If the tropics suit you, the $16.9 million Le Château des Palmiers can be yours. It’s a screaming deal, with the priced reduced from the estate’s original listing of $28 million. Let’s dive into the photos of President Trump’s Caribbean mansion.
Nestled in the pristine, sugar sand beaches of Plum Bay, rests the sprawling 4.8 acres of pure Caribbean paradise. Upon landing at the Princess Juliana Airport, you’ll be slipping into your swimmers in 10 minutes flat. The marble-laden grand entrance welcomes you with open arms and ample light, making certain to ease you right into that island lifestyle.
Safety first, of course
Your safety won’t be compromised at Le Château des Palmiers. The iron-clad security system is state-of-the-art, featuring numerous security cameras and an eight-foot wall surrounding the entirety of the property. Furthermore, your views of the ocean will be uninhibited thanks to the five-foot seawall. It’s safe to say you’ll be able to kick back and relax with not a worry in the world.
Dreams await in the 5-bedroom ocean villa
The gentle waves of the Caribbean Sea will lull you right to sleep in this five-bedroom oceanview villa. And while you’ll have your choice of bedrooms, it’s likely that you’ll lay your claim on the two-story master bedroom with en-suite bath. Enjoy a jacuzzi bath, then make your way out to one of the two ocean-view balconies flanking the master suite. What better place to enjoy your morning cup of joe?
An ultimate mother-in-law suite
Sure, we all love our family and friends, but wouldn’t it be lovely to provide them with their very own villa? Look no further than Le Château des Palmiers. The adjacent four-bedroom garden villa will perfectly suit your guests. The more exotic of the two villas, your guests can take their pick of the king-sized beds in the “Jungle Room” or the “Palm Room.” And don’t worry about them sneaking into your refrigerator to snag a cold brew, as the garden villa is equipped with its own commercial kitchen.
Sit poolside year-round
Put your feet up and fall in love with your life all over again, because this oceanside pool may be the closest to heaven you can get. The massive pool is heated, so on the rare occasion that the island feels a cold-snap, you won’t have to forfeit your daily laps.
Gourmet feasts to be enjoyed by everyone
Do you love to entertain? If so, you’ll have no issue doing just that at this estate. Besides the commercial-grade kitchen in the garden villa, and the fully-equipped kitchen in the ocean view villa, the full outdoor bar will have your guests thanking their lucky stars they became friends with you.
When it comes to enjoying the delicious fare you’ve prepared, choose to do so al-fresco or inside your formal dining room. But who are you kidding? When you live in the Caribbean, it’ll take a hurricane to keep you inside the walls of this estate. Ample outdoor seating provides plenty of space for all of your entertaining demands. And to boot, enjoy a round of outdoor pool after dinner.
Stay swimsuit ready
Sure, sitting by the pool and sipping rum is nice. But when it comes to staying fit, you’ll have no issue in that department either. The estate is equipped with an indoor gym and a tennis court on the property to fulfill all of your fitness needs. And if yoga is your thing, a sunrise session could certainly be arranged.
