When Donald Trump moves into the White House, he will be downsizing.
Trump spends most of his time in three houses:
His three-story penthouse atop Trump Tower in Manhattan, which occupies 30,000 square feet.
The Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida. At 110,000 square feet, it’s the 14th-largest house in the United States. But the residence takes up “only” 62,000 square feet; the rest of the estate belongs to The Mar-a-Lago Club.
The Seven Springs Estate in Bedford, New York, occupies 39,000 square feet.
The president’s private quarters in the White House aren’t that big.
One other president has downsized to move into the residential portion of the White House: Franklin Delano Roosevelt. He grew up and lived at the 24,000-square-foot Springwood estate in Hyde Park, New York.
The White House occupies 54,900 square feet, but more than half of that consists of office space. The private quarters for the first family occupy about 20,000 square feet on two floors. For the president-elect, that’s practically cozy.
