In today's political climate it might be wise not to mention the connection

The Donald’s “starter home” at 21 Vista Drive is back on the market again, this time priced at $38.5 million. These owners have been trying to unload it, off and on, since 2009, when they asked $50 million. They raised it to $54 in 2014, and when that, somewhat surprisingly, didn’t work, dropped it to $45 million. It’s a great piece of waterfront property; not so sure about the house itself.

Town and Country has a spread, including a picture of the young Donald standing on the grand stairway with the house as he liked it. I’m sure most of us would, but these owners, sadly, have stripped the gold flake and otherwise toned things down a bit.
