With President Trump’s lawsuits about voter fraud, his former employees are being sold off and moving on. For example, his one-time digital guru and campaign manager, Brad Parscale, who just built his waterfront home in the upscale Seven Isles neighborhood of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., For just under $ 3 million.
The bearded political operator got national attention for all the wrong reasons on September 27 when his wife, Candice Parscale, called police and claimed he was armed and threatened suicide after a crunchy few months that saw him unusually relegated from his high position for a pure advisory role. Parscale soon resigned from his advisory role to the campaign due to “overwhelming stress.”
There is never a good place to have a public meltdown, and the video of his police surrender is a sober one for anyone who feels overworked and / or under extreme mental stress. If it is a consolation, Parscale’s beautifully renovated 3,400 square foot home with its soothing canvas of white walls, floor-brown marble floors, wood accents and beautiful views of the water was definitely a relaxing place to recover. According to Realtor.com, which first broke the story, the one-story home includes an integrated Sonos sound system and snazzy Lutron lighting to set the mood at a cool level.
Just inside the front door, a lounge area with all the comforts of a hotel lobby has a full wall of lighted built-in units that include a wine refrigerator and a built-in coffee machine. The space flows easily into the adjoining dining area and the smart chef’s kitchen. Wooden cabinets are juxtaposed with white laminate tops and a funky black and white stained mosaic tile. (Presumably Parscale takes the huge aquarium when he leaves.)
The master bedroom also has the luxurious, if not very personal atmosphere of an exclusive boutique hotel with a backlit wooden panel wall and an extended upholstered headboard. The spa-like bath includes a steam shower and a glass wall next to the toilet that revalues a small faux-lawn patio, hampered by a stacked stone wall that one hopes keep naughty Tom and Tinas from looking.
French doors open to the backyard monochromatic bedroom with its swimming pool, spa and spruce pit. Tucked away on the home side, a covered dining area has a full outdoor kitchen highlighted by a wall of shiny metallic tiles and beyond the pool a large deck with boat lift cantilevers over the glassy waterway.
If Parscale’s home certainly looks more stylish than the usual politician’s residence, it’s because he once earned a living by turning houses. And according to an interview with the Daily Mail, plans go back to his old profession. “I want to return to being nobody,” he told the London-based tabloid. “I want to turn houses around as before. I obviously have talent on this and I have made money finding the gems. ”
In addition to its own home, Parscale owns at least one other Fort Lauderdale property on the market, a two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath luxury townhouse listed for $ 965,000 – not much more than the $ 895,000 paid for the site in May of 2018. As it turns out, Parscale’s real estate agent for both properties, Katrina Campins of Katrina Campins Luxury Real Estate, also has a connection to President Trump – she was a participant in the first season of “The Apprentice.” It is, after all, a small real estate world.
