An 80,000-square-foot mansion in Palm Beach, Fla. that developer Donald Trump had listed for $125,000,000 reportedly has gone to contract to be sold to a foreign buyer for $100,000,000. The Palm Beach Post reported yesterday that the mansion, at 515 N. County Road in Palm Beach, is under contract. Trump had had the mansion on the market for $125,000,000, and then recently reduced its asking price to $100,000,000. Trump, who owns the Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach but who never has lived in this mansion, apparently only would tell the Palm Beach Post on the record that the estate, which has 475 feet of unobstructed oceanfront “is the best piece of land anywhere.” In addition, “sources” (also Trump?) told the paper that the unnamed buyer is considering tearing down the mansion and subdividing the property. Given that Trump is involved, one has to wonder if there’s any embellishing going on, especially sale price-wise. The property’s history is colorful. Records show that Trump Properties, LLC paid $41,350,000 in 2004 for the mansion and 6-acre lot from bankrupt former health-care magnate Abe Gosman. Trump then spent $25,000,000 to have one of his “Apprentice” winners oversee the renovation of the estate into a mansion with nine-bedrooms, a ballroom, a conservatory and a 48-car (yes, you read that right) garage, the Post reported. The French Renaissance-style mansion was constructed in 1990 by Gosman and dubbed “Maison de l’Amitie,” or House of Friendship. Gosman reportedly hosted President George H.W. Bush, Luciano Pavarotti and Ethel Kennedy at the mansion during his years of ownership. If Trump fetches the amount reported, the sale easily would be an all-time record for Palm Beach, surpassing the $81,500,000 paid last month for Sidney Kimmel’s oceanfront mansion.
