This month's spotlight goes to Le Château des Palmiers in St. Martin. Yahoo News recently reported that Le Château's notorious owner, President Donald Trump, has decided to sell the villa for a cool $28 million. POTUS described the villa as "one of the greatest mansions in the world" when he bought the estate in 2013. Real estate agents who are familiar with the island believe that the villa can profit from its steep pricing because of the owner's allure, as similar estates in the area often sell for half the price (Washington Post). Would you consider the owner's notoriety as a selling point in a villa?
Whether or not you care about who owned Le Château, the design and amenities are worth noting. The oceanfront estate flaunts every indulgence, including a private beach, tennis court, and full staff. Every picture of the villa features plush fabrics, glamorous lighting, and regal architecture. The villa is divided into two buildings, the ocean side villa and the garden side villa. The ocean side villa holds four king bedrooms with full private baths, a fully equipped kitchen, formal living and dining rooms, a media room, and al fresco dining. The real showstopper in this building is the two story master suite, complete with two private balconies and a Jacuzzi tub. The garden side villa has two king suites, two queen suites, and a commercial kitchen. Le Château is inarguably spacious, and has a state of the art security system, surveillance cameras, and an 8 ft boundary wall for ultimate seclusion.
