The Connecticut mansion where President Donald Trump lived with his first wife, Ivana is back on the market for $45 million.
Resting on a peninsula into the Long Island Sound, the 6-acre estate is currently owned by financier, Robert Steinberg and his wife, Suzanne. In 1998, the couple shed $15 million for the Georgian-style home, which Ivana kept after the divorce from Trump.
The Steinbergs have stripped the home of its lavish, gilded décor – including the gold-leaf motif – that the Trumps fancied. Today, the home is much more relaxed in style and livable in arrangements, according to listing agent Tamar Lurie of Coldwell Banker, as quoted in the Wall Street Journal.
In the last two decades, the property changed beyond interior design upgrades, leaving few visible vestiges of the time the Trump family spent here. The Steinbergs added a luxury guesthouse, a tennis court and an indoor swimming pool to the main house, which was originally built in 1939.
The 8-bedroom, 10-bathroom estate also features a private dock, an elevator and a putting green.
The Steinbergs first listed the mansion for $54 million but pulled it off the market as Trump’s presidential campaign gained traction. Their decision to now relist it has little to do with the country’s politics – although its association with the president helps gain attention – and a lot to do with their ongoing construction of a new home elsewhere, according to the WSJ.
