A JawDropping Tour Of President Trumps 28M Caribbean Mansion For Sale

It seems that President Donald Trump has determined that he owns at least one home too many. After all, he's now splitting most of his time between a charming old mansion at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in Washington, DC, and a sprawling estate/resort/"winter White House" in Palm Beach, FL. (Where's the love, Trump Tower?) So he's selling one of his more remote properties: Le Chateau des Palmiers, on the island of St. Martin in the Caribbean.

The commander in chief quietly listed this 4.8-acre beachfront home on Sotheby's International Realty last month, according to the Washington Post.

When he bought it for an undisclosed sum in 2013, he deemed the 11-bedroom, 12-bath estate "one of the greatest mansions in the world." Although the home's current list price is available only upon request, a person familiar with the listing revealed it is an eye-popping $28 million.

Inside Trump's Caribbean home

There's no denying that Le Chateau des Palmiers is one gem of a property, complete with gold drapes and crystal chandeliers that fall perfectly in line with Trump's aesthetic. The amenities are as luxe as expected: a heated pool, fitness center, tennis court, and covered outdoor bar and billiard area. There's also a commercial catering kitchen—ideal for a wedding or other large event.

But even with all those amenities, some real estate agents believe the $28 million list price is on the high side for the area.

"There aren’t too many properties in St. Martin that are more than $15 to $20 million," says Gerard Longo, principal of Mettle Property Group in New York.

In any case, a multimillion-dollar property like this isn't likely to get snatched up by a buyer overnight.

"It is not uncommon to see properties of this size sitting on the market for a few years," Longo says.
