A common question about Donald Trump is “Where did he come from?” and this new listing for his childhood home in Queens may be one piece of the puzzle. Newsday reports that the Jamaica Estates home in which the presidential hopeful lived as a young boy has hit the market for $1.65 million. The six-bedroom tudor home at 85-15 Wareham Place is listed as his address on his 1946 birth certificate (he was born at nearby Jamaica Hospital) and is located in an affluent enclave where the average sales price is around $2 million according to DNAinfo.
Built in 1940, the brick and stucco home takes up 2,000 square feet and has a fireplace in the living room, formal dining room, screened-in patio, and mahogany floors. A finished basement offers a bedroom and full bath and has two outside entrances. There’s also a five-car driveway and a two-car detached garage. Listing agent Howard Kaminowitz told DNAinfo “It’s a really nice house. And it’s probably the least expensive Tudor in Jamaica Estates now.”
Trump lived in the house until his father Fred built a larger house nearby on Midland Parkway; records show that this home was ready for occupancy by 1950, though it’s not certain when the family moved.
