The Greenwich Village, Connecticut mansion that has been owned by President Donald Trump and former wife Ivana is on the market. The home, which was built in 1939 and was purchased by the Trumps $4 million as a “starter” mansion in the early ’80s. It is now on the market for a mere $45 million.
Donald Trump was 35 years old when and Ivana purchased their first mansion. The estate sat on nearly six acres of prime waterfront property. In 1991, Ivana received the home in the couple’s divorce settlement. In 1998, she sold it to financier Robert Steinberg and his wife Suzanne for $15 million.

The Steinbergs were attracted to the homes’ incredible views of Long Island Sound. They were drawn to the properties’ other outdoor amenities which included a private boat dock on Indian Harbor. It also included a putting green, tennis court, pool, and a myriad of outside terraces perfect for entertaining.
The interior of the 19,773 square foot estate is even more impressive. While living in the mansion the Trumps decorated it in an ornate style with a lot of gold leaf and many of the other decorative products that had been used in the remodeling of Trumps’ Plaza Hotel. The new owners rid the home of many of the lavish décor making it much or livable, but still elegant in a more subtle way.
Upon entering the expansive Georgian Colonial mansion, you are met by a double grand staircase and a three-story rotunda. The mansion has 10 bedrooms, 13 baths, several formal dining, and many entertaining areas throughout the home.
After purchasing the mansion, the Steinberg’s made many additions and renovations to the glitzy property. They expanded the property by adding a tennis court, indoor lap pool, and sauna. They built a 4,000-square-foot addition with guest suites and three fully-equipped staff residences. The home features a subterranean theater room, several terraces, and patios with exquisite views making it perfect for entertaining. The home has an abundance of unique features worthy of a high-end resort.
The Steinberg’s put the house on the market in 2014 with a listing price of $54 million. The property did not sell at that price so decided to relist the home at its current price of $45 million.
