The five-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath home in Jamaica Estates, Queens boasts seventeen beds—two sofa beds and many bunk beds, with a few regular ones thrown in. The host notes that, though the home is not in any way officially linked with the president or the White House, Trump’s aura abounds.
“Not much has been changed since the Trumps lived here, the kitchen is original and the opulent furnishings represent the style and affluence in which the Trumps would have lived,” the listing states. “This is a unique and special opportunity to stay in the home of a sitting president.” [Ed. note: except for the gold-toned shower stall and Trump schlock, the house looks like literally any other middle class home in the tristate area.]
The host pumps the residence’s extras, including a definitely not creepy cut-out of the Donald that looms over the living room. Per the listing, “he is a great companion for watching Fox News late into the night….” And really, could there be a more perfect setting for a Lay’s potato chip binge and 5:00 a.m. tweetstorm?
Despite the capaciousness of the abode, there’s no mention of a fallout shelter, which would make the rental a real bargain in the face of nuclear war with North Korea.
Last year, the house was purchased by real estate investor Michael Davis, who promptly flipped the $1.4 million property. In March, Davis sold the Tudor-style home for $2.14 million at auction to an anonymous buyer. For the curious and Google Maps–inclined, the house is at 85-15 Wareham Place, a short walk to the F train at 179th Street.
