Located at Trump National Golf Course, which he owns and operates, the 11,000-square-foot Mediterranean mansion has a great-room entry, a 1,000-square-foot kitchen, marble flooring and wall-to-ceiling sliding doors that disappear from view.
Trump, whose main residence is in New York, said he splits his time in Los Angeles between his home in Beverly Hills and Rancho Palos Verdes, "where the job is." He has built six houses at the golf course, which has lots for 75.
"This is one of the best locations with a direct view of the Pacific Ocean and views from three sides of the house," he said. "There's very little obstruction."
The five-bedroom, nine-bathroom home has a game room with a bar that is a replica of the one at the course restaurant. "It has a spectacular basement with light and air," Trump said. A wine room is enclosed behind glass, and the master bedroom has a patio and fire pit.
The U-shaped mansion, designed by Luis de Moraes of Envirotechno Architecture, has an infinity pool in the courtyard.
Trump, 64, is chairman and chief executive of his own real estate development company; founder of Trump Entertainment Resorts; and star and producer of "The Apprentice" (2004 to present) on which contestants vie for a chance to work for him. This season's contestant pool is made up of the recently unemployed.
The business magnate will be the subject of " CNBC Titans: Donald Trump" on Wednesday.
Linda D'Ambrosi and Sandra Callen of Keller Williams, Rancho Palos Verdes, are the listing agents.
Dodger shortstop lists his dugout
Dodgers shortstop Rafael Furcal is trying to sell his home on a golf course in La Cañada Flintridge for $4,449,000, the Multiple Listing Service shows.
The contemporary Mediterranean, built in 2000, has a two-story entry, marble and limestone floors, a study, a media room, a wine tasting room and a billiards/game room. The grounds include a swimming pool with spa, an outdoor kitchen and a built-in barbecue. Six bedrooms and nine bathrooms are in about 7,400 square feet of living space.
Furcal, 33, started his major league career with the Atlanta Braves in 2000 and signed with the Dodgers in 2005. Sidelined by injuries, he played in only 97 games this season.
Public records indicate that Furcal bought the property in 2007 for $4.25 million.
Dee Crawford of Keller Williams Realty, Beverly Hills, is the listing agent, according to the MLS.
