Trump's boyhood home headed to auction

It's not Trump Tower. But Donald Trump's first boyhood home is a charming two-story Tudor-style home in a park-like enclave of New York City.

Now, the house in the Jamaica Estates neighborhood of Queens is going on the auction block Wednesday evening with an opening bid of $849,000.

Trump lived in the home — built in 1940 by his developer father — until he was 4 years old. The family then moved to another house in the same community, also built by his dad.

The brick-and-stucco home has five bedrooms, 4½ baths, an enclosed rear porch and a detached, 2-car garage. The 3,600-square-foot house also features a finished basement with a second kitchen.

Jamaica Estates is an upper middle class enclave of one-family Tudor, Victorian and Colonial style homes.
