21 Vista Drive

Celebrities, Connecticut, Cool Listings

21 Vista Drive, Greenwich Connecticut mansion, Donald Trump mansion, Ivana Trump

When Donald Trump was rising up in the real estate ranks in the early ’80s (and when he was still a Democrat), he and then-wife Ivana were looking for their first “trophy mansion.” In 1982, they found it in this 5.8-acre Greenwich, Connecticut estate, paying $4 million for the home on its own peninsula. At the time, Trump was busy refurbishing the Plaza Hotel, so he and Ivana infused their new home with the same ornate style of gold leaf, massive chandeliers, and moldings galore.

When the couple divorced in 1991, Ivana got the mansion (among many other properties and cash), but she sold it seven years later for $15 million to owners who made the property even more opulent, adding an indoor lap pool, sauna, tennis courts, and a 4,000-square-foot guest suite addition. These owners listed the property back in January for $54 million, but it’s now gotten a price chop to $45 million, according to Top Ten Real Estate News.
