It's the extensive property worth an estimated $200m which US President Donald Trump treats as his second home.

Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, dubbed the "Winter White House" is a private members club which Trump purchased in 1985.

Its interior style is about as subtle as Versailles with gold and crystal door handles, sinks and finishes in his wing of the 58-bedroom property.

Not to mention the 20,000 square foot ballroom with $5m worth of gold leaf adorning the walls and six tennis courts, croquet court, gym, spa, pool and eight waterfront beach huts set among 20 acres of gardens.

Before being elected president, membership was $100,000 , a fee which has since doubled.

Trump's son eldest son Donald Jr wed there in 2005, while the property has also hosted parts for Diddy and Russell Simmons.

So what makes Mar-a-Lago so special? See for yourself.
