Donald Trump’s old house is being sold for $54 million, according to listing agent Tamar Lurie.

The impressive mansion is nearly 20,000 square feet with eight bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, a putting green, home theater, tennis courts and three staff apartments.

It sits on 5.8-acres and was built in 1939. Donald and Ivana Trump bought it in 1982 for $4 million, and Ivana refurbished it with the same materials she was using to Redo The Plaza Hotel in Manhattan at the time, according to Top Ten Real Estate Deals.

When the pair divorced in 1991, Ivana got the mansion and sold it seven years later for $15 million. In 2000, the new owners renovated the home and added the tennis courts, additional guest rooms, as well as an indoor lap pool.

Even without the tennis courts, it must have made quite the charming starter mansion. The current owners, who wish to remain anonymous, have listed the home with Coldwell Banker agent Tamar Lurie.
