LAH Properties buys Ivana Trump’s former home for $3.975 million

The house previously owned by Ivana Trump and sold in 2004 for $2.55 to W. Ted Gossett, an associate with Sotheby’s International Realty, has been sold. According to the warranty deed filed Tuesday, Gossett sold his residence at 190 Via Palma to LAH Properties LLC, managed by CGI Holdings, for $3.975 million.

CGI Holdings is a subsidiary of Clinton Group Inc., a SEC-registered investment advisory firm, whose president, CEO and co-founder is George E. Hall. Hall and his wife, Lori Ann Hall, are New Jersey residents.

Listed for $5.25 million, the four-bedroom South End property features 4,700 square feet of living area, three walk-in kitchen pantries and grounds with formal English gardens. There is also a pool and cabana that can double as a guest apartment or staff quarters.

After her divorce, Ivana Trump christened the Bermuda-style Palm Beach home Solo Mio, “Mine Alone.” When Gossett bought the house from Trump, he gave the estate a complete overhaul, removing every tree and bush on the property to make way for clipped lawns, manicured hedges and glossy-white benches.

He also created light, space, privacy and outdoor “rooms,” removed a chain-link fence that edged the front boundary and created a welcoming old-Chicago-brick courtyard entry with two sets of columns set off by limestone finials, and bordered the gardens with sculpted hedges.
