First the New York Post broke the story and then the Real Deal followed up. But even though the name is the same and the businesses are in similar ballparks, it isn’t the East End’s Michael Davis who bought Donald Trump’s childhood home in Queens.
According to both sources, the 36-year-old Manhattan real estate investor, and NOT the venerable Wainscott-based builder of luxury English and French Country homes, is the guy behind the purchase of 85-15 Wareham Place in Jamaica Estates, Queens.
The Post says that the house was built by DT’s father, Fred Trump in 1940. And that the five bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath Tudor sold below the original list, for just under $1.4 million. Davis’s LLC, Wareham Place Holdings, was the buyer. An online ad from Paramount Realty states that the house would be sold at auction on January 17.
