Faith Hill, Tim McGraw show off Bahamas beach house

The couple created a dream world on the island, which is accessible only by plane. The process took a lot longer than they thought. They first bought the island in 2003 and only moved into their stunning home less than a year ago.

So, what was the holdup?

“We were a little bit naive, possibly,” Faith told Architectural Digest.

She continued: “We set out to build a house. We had no idea we had to build everything else. We basically had to build a little town.”

When they first bought the island, there was no electricity or running water, according to Architectural Digest. They had to build all that infrastructure, as well as housing for the construction workers and current caretakers on the island.

“You don’t quite put all that together at first,” Tim said.

In the decade it took to build their amazing home, Tim and Faith and their three girls all lived in a pair of seaside yurts, or portable round tents, when visiting the island.

“The kids loved it,” Tim told Architectural Digest.

As for the current home, Tim and Faith partnered with Nashville-based architects and designers to create a unique getaway. Everything about the house is designed to bring the stunning environment of the island indoors.

“We’ve been all over the world, and we really wanted to create a special place we couldn’t find anywhere else,” Faith said. “We wanted to feel connected to the outside. When the breeze comes through the room, it’s just life-changing. It really is! It’s something for the soul.”

Tim and Faith will surely enjoy their island paradise after putting in a year on tour together.

When the president-elect and his family relocate to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., they'll have slightly less room to roam than at Trump's iconic Florida property, Mar-a-Lago.

Trump has suggested that he intends to spend a significant amount of time at Mar-a-Lago, which he referred to as "the Winter White House" in a recent Twitter post:

According to the Palm Beach Post, Mar-a-Lago was built by cereal heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post and opened for the 1927 winter season with 58 bedrooms and 33 bathrooms. Its name means "sea to lake," signifying the property's position stretching between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway.

When Post died in 1973, she willed the estate to the U.S. government, but the government declined, citing Mar-a-Lago's high maintenance costs, the Palm Beach Post reported. According to Town & Country, annual maintenance costs totaled around $1 million.

Though the estate was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1980, it sat empty until Trump purchased it in 1985 for $8 million. Trump and his then-wife Ivana spent years restoring the property. Trump turned the estate into a private club in 1995 and built a 20,000-square-foot ballroom on the property, among other notable features.

The Mar-a-Lago club, which caps at 500 members, has a non-refundable membership fee of $100,000 and annual dues of $14,000, according to the club's managing director and executive vice president, Bernd Lembcke. Members are also required to spend $2,000 on food every year. 

Construction of the White House, home of every U.S. president since John Adams in 1800, began in 1792.

Here's how the two properties compare:

Donald Trump lived in the house from birth until he was 4 years old.

Michael Davis, a real estate prospector, bought the house last year for just under $1.4 million with the intention of flipping it, The New York Times reported. Now, Paramount is selling the home.

"It's unique, and it has intangible value that goes beyond just the physical real estate," Misha Haghani, the principal of Paramount, told The Times. "The value of Trump's name, the value of the president-elect living there as a child, an infant, that value is impossible to define."

According to Paramount, the 2,500-square-foot house features "a brick and stucco exterior and an old world charm interior featuring arched doorways, hardwood floors, five bedrooms, four and a half baths, library, living room with fireplace, formal dining room, basement and more."

The Tudor-style home is located in Jamaica Estates, a neighborhood in Queens, New York.

The San Francisco home featured in "Mrs. Doubtfire" hit the market with a multi-million dollar price tag this week.

The home, featured in the 1993 film starring Robin Williams, is located at 2640 Steiner Street. It was the site of a memorial for the Bay Area-based actor after he committed suicide in Aug. 2014, and it remains an "unofficial memorial," according to KGO-TV.

The three-story Victorian house has four bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms and sits overlooking the San Francisco Bay. It also features a marble bath tub and two-person shower, "garden/patio for al fresco enjoyment," an office/family room, foyer, a remodeled kitchen, space for a personal gym and a multi-car garage. According to E! News, "a piece of the garage actually lifts your car up into the air so you can park a second one under it."

"Because it's built on a wide corner lot, the public rooms are large-scale and the home has an open feel," said listing agent Steven Gothelf of Pacific Union Christie's International. 

The home, built in 1893, is approximately 3,300 square feet.

The current owner, Douglas Ousterhout, is a surgeon who has specialized in facial feminization surgery for transgender patients. He purchased the home in 1997 for $1.395 million, according to the San Francisco Gate. The Gate reported that Ousterhout is selling the home to retire in the wine country.
