(PatrioticPost.com)- Donald Trump Jr. and his girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, are settling into their new home in Florida. But, they didn’t have an easy time getting there.
In late March, the couple settled on a six-bedroom home for $9.7 million. It’s located in Jupiter’s neighborhood of Admiral’s Cove. In a separate deal, Guilfoyle herself bought the seven-bedroom house that’s next door, for $10 million.
The couple first started looking into the community, which is gated, back in January. That timeline happened right after the attacks at the U.S. Capitol building, which resulted in some backlash from the other residents of the community.
Residents heard that Trump Jr. and Guilfoyle were under contract on the two homes that were located on adjacent lots, and they went right to the homeowners’ association to complain. Some residents in the neighborhood were concerned that the high-profile couple would bring some unwanted attention to the neighborhood.
Those residents were also apparently concerned that this extra attention to their waterfront community could create potential “safety issues.”
Nothing official came of the complaints, though, as Trump Jr. and Guilfoyle were able to successfully close on their two homes. There are no reports as to what the couple plans to do with the homes, such as whether they would knock them down to build one larger property.
Now that the couple is settling into their new Palm Beach County digs, they are located much closer to the rest of their family. Former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach is only roughly 20 minutes away.
Vanessa, Trump Jr.’s ex-wife, also lives close by. She lives with the couples five kids. Even Ivanka Trump is renting a house in nearby Surfside while a home for her and husband Jared Kushner is being built in Indian Creek Village.
In earlier March, Trump Jr. and Guilfoyle sold their house in the Hamptons for $8 million. That was almost double what the couple had paid for the seven-bedroom home back in 2019 ($4.4 million).
The home in the Hamptons wasn’t publicly listed. Instead, it was listed privately through two agents at Nestseekers — James Guigliano and Shawn Egan — which isn’t out of the ordinary for high-profile clients and homes of that price range.
The patriarch of the family wasn’t without his troubles as he moved to Florida, either. When the former president left the White House, he took up residence at his Mar-a-Lago resort.
The neighbors there, though, also didn’t like the extra attention they thought they’d be getting with a high-profile resident. They even went as far as trying to get Trump evicted from his residence, since there was a town rule that said people couldn’t call Mar-a-Lago their permanent residency.
Eventually, that debacle ended when the town council of Palm Beach allowed Trump to live there permanently. Skip Randolph, who serves as the attorney for the town, said there was nothing in Mar-a-Lago’s 1993 agreement with the town that would prohibit Trump from living there as his permanent
