The sale of this sprawling St. Martin estate lacks precedent—and may also lack a president—if it sells for the asking price.
Sotheby’s International Realty quietly listed Le Château des Palmiers, which is owned by President Donald Trump, for $28 million.
In an Instagram post, the high-end real estate agent noted that “It’s huuuuuge!” Some watchdog groups aren’t laughing, as the presumptive sale has once again started to raise ethics concerns, notes The Washington Post.
For a buyer with $28 million to spare, the Plum Bay beachfront estate includes two villas—one oceanside with five bedrooms, the other garden-side with four—as well as a gaggle of amenities. These include a heated swimming pool, an open-air and air-conditioned fitness center, tennis courts, outdoor bar, a billiards room, outdoor sound system, and multiple dining areas.
The oceanside villa includes five king-size bedrooms with full private baths, as well as a two-story master suite with a jacuzzi tub and a pair of private balconies.
Not to be outdone, the garden-side villa features a “Jungle Room” (king-size bed and small living room) and “Palm Room” (king-size bed, two-bedroom queen-size suite, shared living room, and dining room).
Trump’s estate also includes a state-of-the-art security system, surveillance cameras, and no joke, an eight-foot boundary wall (insert Colbert joke here). There’s an additional five-foot-tall beachfront wall, which provides an unobstructed view of the ocean and beach, yet passersby wouldn’t be able to see into the property.
All that, and a two-bedroom manager’s station, with living room, kitchen, and office.
The property is just a 10-minute drive from the nearest airport.
