U.S. President Donald Trump currently has seven residences.

During his time at the New York Military Academy, he lived on campus; he later rented row houses in college. In 1971, Trump moved to a studio on 75th Street in Manhattan.[1] Since the completion of Trump Tower in 1983, Trump has lived in a three-level penthouse on the top floors. He purchased the Seven Springs mansion in Bedford, New York in 1995. Upon Trump's election to the US presidency, he moved into the White House in Washington, D.C. while First Lady Melania and their son initially stayed at Trump Tower in Manhattan until the end of the school year before moving to the White House as well.[2]

Current residences[edit]

Beverly Hills[edit]

Trump owns a six-bedroom mansion in Beverly Hills, California, which Trump had rarely used and had put on the market and rented out at different times.[1]

Mar-a-Lago[edit]

Seven Springs[edit]

Trump owns a 39,000 square feet (3,600 m2) mansion on 213 acres (86 ha) in Bedford and New Castle, New York. The mansion has an indoor pool of white marble on its first floor and sixty rooms, including thirteen bedrooms and twelve baths.[1][3] The property has a glass and stone orangery for growing citrus, with a bowling alley in its basement. Also on the property is a formal garden pavilion, a fountain in the front lawn, a greenhouse and root cellar, stone water tower, and a Tudor Revival house and courtyard known by the name of "Nonesuch".[3]

It was formerly the home of Eugene Meyer and his family, including Katharine Graham. In 1919, Meyer had artist and architect Charles A. Platt design the mansion of sandstone from the property. He spent $2 million constructing it, and sold it to Trump in 1995 for $7.5 million. Trump originally planned to build a golf course there, however he was opposed by the governments of the three municipalities the property lies within, and he wanted to prevent a new course competing with his existing course nearby in Briarcliff Manor. Trump's plans changed for Seven Springs to include building fifteen mansions, each to sell for about $25 million, and renovating the two existing houses.[3] In 2015, Trump placed most of the property under a conservation easement, apparently signaling the abandonment of any major development plans.[4]

Donald Trump owns the 38-story Trump Parc condominium skyscraper at 106 Central Park South, and often privately owns multiple units within it, which he rents for up to $100,000 a month.[1]

Trump has several apartments at Trump Park Avenue, where his daughter Ivanka lives.[1]
