AN INCREDIBLE nine-bedroom mansion on Donald Trump’s old Palm Beach property has blitzed records after selling for a whopping $122million.
The sale of 535 N. Country Road “is one of the most expensive residential deals ever in the US”, say real estate sources.
New York-based real estate agent – and TV star – Ryan Serhant, who represents the buyer, told WPTV that the final closing price was $122.7million.
The house, which has never been lived in, was sold quickly, as it was only listed in January for $140million, including all of its glitzy furnishings.
Plus, it offers an outdoor movie theater and massive fish tank, according to the Mail Online.
Built in 2020, the family home includes nine bedrooms, 12 full bathrooms and seven ‘half-bathrooms’, according to its listing on Realtor.com.
It also features a balcony; built-in grill; cabana; fenced front wall; guesthouse/cottage and private ocean access – included in its deeds.
Palm Beach Daily explains that the property faces 150 feet of shoreline, and sits on a spacious two acres.
The lot was “one of three carved from a 6.2acre estate that former President Donald Trump sold in 2008 – eight years before his election – for a record setting $95million deal”, it adds.
Boasting 21,066 sq ft of living space, inside and out – 15,350 sq ft of which is cooled by extensive air conditioning.
“Just south of the estate owned by billionaire investor Nelson Peltz, the property lies on a stretch of beachfront sometimes called the North End’s Billionaires Row”, according to Palm Beach Daily.
The buyer dealt with New York City broker Ryan Serhhant – a star of TV reality show Million Dollar Listing New York – of the concierge-style agency Serhant.
He was working with agent Christopher Leavitt of Douglas Elliman Real Estate’s Palm Beach brokerage, a spokeswoman for Serhant told the newspaper.
“After [Serhant viewed] the property with his [unnamed] client, they were under contract in less than 24 hours,” it was told.
However the daily believes the buyer is “linked to Scott Shleifer, a partner at Tiger Global Management, where he specializes in private-equity deals”.
The property is located near Palm Beach Public, Conniston Middle and Palm Beach Lakes High Schools, while the Rosarian Academy Private School and Saint Ann Catholic High School are just over one mile away.
