The U.S. president is currently living in one of America’s most famous houses, but let’s take a look at his humble house when he was a child.
Grew up in Queens, New York, Trump’s family owned a five-bedroom Tudor-style home in secluded Jamaica Estates. Different from many of the properties in his real estate portfolio, Trump’s childhood home at 85-15 Warhem Place is much more modest, with no gold accents seen.
This is what the house looked like for the outside.
Looking all nice and cozy.
The home was build in 1940 by Trump’s father, Fred and now decked out with all sorts of Trump memorabilia, including photos and a life-sized cut-out of the president. His family was said to move out of the property and got into a larger house in the same area when he was four years old.

The home has since had several owners but became popular after Trump’s bid for the presidency and subsequent win. The house was even briefly listed on the property rental site Airbnb for $725 a night at one point.
Now two years after it was last sold, the house is once again back in the market and has been listed for $2.9 million.
Besides the five bedrooms, the 3600-square-foot property comes with four-and-a-half bathrooms, a finished basement, and a two-car garage. Unlike the open concept homes that most of the houses have today, living room, dining room, and kitchen in Trump childhood house are connected by arched doorways.

You can definitely tell the home’s true age looking at the kitchen cabinets, wood-paneled walls, and tiles floors.
The living room of the house is furnished with a fireplace and hardwood floors.
The modest brick and stucco house also features a wood-paneled library, or perhaps study room.
Paramount Realty USA didn’t disclose which bedroom belonged to Trump, but many guessed that it would be one of the smaller rooms since he was the fourth of five children.
This one doesn’t look like it belongs to little Donald.
The house also has an enclosed patio which is connected to both the kitchen and the study.
Trump once joked about being still interested to buy the house when he appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in 2016.
Well, the house is definitely a beautiful one to keep!
