If you’ve ever wanted to spend a night in Donald Trump’s childhood home، now is your chance، The Independent reported.
Mr Trump’s five-bedroom، 3.5-bathroom estate in New York is available for bookings on Airbnb.
The property was auctioned off to an unnamed buyer in March، for $2.14m (£1.65m). The buyers have since leased it out to another party for $4،000 (£3،070) a month. And now you، too، can spend a night there، for $725 (£558) a night.
“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 Airbnb listing reads.
It continues: “This is a unique and special opportunity to stay in the home of a sitting president." Photos accompanying the listing show the property has also been updated with various Trump memorabilia. There is an American flag outside، framed Trump quotes on the walls، and photos of Mr Trump scattered throughout the house. In the living room is a giant cutout of the President – “a great companion for watching Fox News late into the night”، the listing reads.
The Tudor-style home is said to sleep 17، and comes equipped with a full kitchen، internet and Cable TV. It is located in a wealthy neighbourhood of New York’s Queens borough، which the listing claims is “a wonderful haven from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan”.
“The Trump Childhood home... is the perfect accommodation for a New York Vacation،” the listing reads. Misha Haghani، the principal at the real estate company that auctioned off Mr Trump’s home، confirmed the authenticity of the listing to The Independent.
He said the long-term renters، not the owners، had made the decision to list the property on Airbnb.
He added that the owner had never intended to use the property for traditional purposes in the first place.
"We figured that whoever would buy it would buy it for some sort of investment purpose،" he said. "When we dealt with this buyer، that was confirmed. We knew that they were not buying it in order to move in."
