Mar-a-Lago is a landmark estate in Palm Beach, Florida owned by Donald Trump
Mar-a-Lago (Spanish word-for-word translation of “Sea-to-Lake”) was built from 1924 to 1927 and envisioned to be a future winter retreat for American presidents. The estate is owned by the President-elect of the United States, Donald Trump.
After unsuccessfully trying to purchase and combine two apartments in Palm Beach for his family, Donald Trump learned about the estate and offered $15 million. After the Post family rejected the offer, Trump threatened to block Mar-a-Lago’s beach view, forcing the Post family to accept his last offer of less than $8 million in December 1985. Trump renovated the estate, adding a 20,000 square-foot ballroom to the 58 bedrooms, 33 bathrooms, 12 fireplaces and three bomb shelters.
The house also contains the Mar-a-Lago Club, a members-only club with guest rooms, a spa, and other hotel-style amenities. The Trump family maintains private quarters in a separate, closed-off area of the house and grounds.
