Step Inside Donald Trump's Gaudiest Mansions

If you had to pick one, which would you choose?

Enter the domestic world of Donald Trump, a realm where penthouses, carpeted staircases, marbled kitchen islands, crystal chandeliers, movie theaters, golf courses and houses with other houses in the backyard is the norm.

As if it would be anything else.

Before we get tired of everything Trump, here's a quick tour through some of the man's domestic excesses. While he's owned many properties over the years -- and currently owns others -- these four estates are something else.

Make yourself at home.

Trump bought this 20,000 square-foot, 45-room house on a private peninsula in 1982 (and lost it in his 1991 divorce with first wife Ivana, as can sometimes happen). It features a three-story rotunda with "butterfly" staircases, outdoor and indoor pools, a bowling alley, tennis court and guest house.As regal as it looks in the newer photos below, the CT Post reports this home has been toned down from what it looked like during Trump's tenure. Apparently, Ivana decked everything out in gold leaf. As one does.

Mar-a-Lago is a 17-acre headache for Palm Beach residents that was originally built for Marjorie Merriweather Post (of cereal fortune). Trump bought it in 1985, eventually turning it into a private club.The estate boasts 58 bedrooms and 33 bathrooms, and what home is complete without a 75-foot tower that can be seen for miles? Not this one.
