What’s up with Donald Trump’s Seven Springs house here?
Donald Trump’s mega-mansion, Seven Springs, the $19.5-million estate he bought from Rockefeller University back in 1996, is poised once again to make headlines.
The 50,000-square-foot house boasts 60 rooms, 15 bedrooms, and two servants quarters. Trump’s son Eric is believed to live there, at least occasionally. Once upon a time, Trump planned to build on the property a luxury golf course; after eight years, that idea was scratched.
Next, he threatened to erect instead 14 gigantic homes. Nothing happened.
The property made news in 2009 when Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi pitched a tent on it while in New York to address the United Nations. Trump pretended at the time that he had unknowingly rented the property to the dictator.
Chris Burdick, supervisor for the Town of Bedford, reported there is activity regarding Seven Springs that is current. “He has filed a declaration regarding his conservation easement,” Burdick says.
He suggested anyone could look it up online at westchesterclerk.com.
“This document appeared in the fall. We know it exists. It would impact eight homes.” Burdick says because Seven Springs spans three municipalities, including Bedford, North Castle, and New Castle, any changes or development of the property would be slow moving.
He did add that should Trump prevail and become President, it could cause a problem should he name Seven Springs as his summer White House. “That would add an extra burden to the Bedford Police Department.”
