The Tudor home in the Jamaica Estates neighborhood was built in 1940 by Trump’s father, a local real estate developer and landlord. It’s where the president spent his early childhood.

The 5-bedroom, 4.5-bath home measures 2,500 square feet and has a finished basement with a full bathroom. There’s also a bonus room for guests and a summer kitchen.

It was first listed last summer for $1.65 million, but it took a couple price cuts before Paramount Realty USA planned an auction for the evening of one of Trump and Hillary Clinton’s debates.

That auction was postponed. Then, real estate investor Michael Davis bought the home for $1.39 million.
