Inside the abandoned sex dens Jeffrey Epstein shared with Ghislaine Maxwell

    Amid the lurid ongoing trial of Ghislaine Maxwell, who is charged with grooming many of the late pedo-perv Jeffrey Epstein’s victims, never-before-seen photos of the estates he shared with his “lady of the house” have come to light.

    Two years after the disgraced financier’s death at 66 by hanging in a federal jail cell, these images — seized by officials who conducted raids into all of his homes — offer a glimpse at what’s become of Epstein’s sprawling properties, including his most off-the-radar compound located in the Virgin Islands, which remains abandoned.

    The cache of evidence, released as part of Maxwell’s federal sex-trafficking trial, reveals what FBI agents discovered, which included a trove of discs that give a glimpse into their jet-setting lives together.

    Prosecutors entered many of the photos — including first looks at his infamous massage rooms — as exhibits last week during the testimony, accusing Maxwell, 59, of recruiting and grooming underage teens who were sexually abused by Epstein between 1994 and 2004. She faces six criminal counts at trial, including enticing a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts.

    As bits and pieces of her past life are laid bare for the public, Maxwell continued to maintain her innocence and pleaded not guilty. At the start of her trial two weeks ago, her lawyers argued that she was a scapegoat who wasn’t indicted until nearly a year after Epstein died in a federal jail while awaiting his own sex-trafficking trial. The New York City medical examiner’s office ruled the death a suicide.

    Since Epstein’s death in 2019, dozens of alleged victims have come forward with sexual assault claims, forcing the executors of his estates — Darren Indyke and Richard Kahn — to set up a victims’ compensation fund to dole out damages.

    The accusers who have all spoken out have detailed the locations where they claim to have been subjected to rape and sexual torture.

    Maxwell’s trial is set to resume later this week.

    The Post has obtained current aerial images of the vast properties where Epstein and Maxwell lived large, in addition to haunting interior photographs that were recently revealed in court.

    Virgin Islands — Little St. James & Great St. James

    Most notorious is Epstein’s island, commonly referred to as “pedo” island, where victims have described in detail trying to swim off the shore in shark-infested water, almost drowning to escape the abuse they faced at the hands of Epstein and his colleagues.

    Epstein purchased Little St. James, which spans over 70 acres, in 1998 for only $7.95 million at the time.

    In 2016, shortly before his arrest, he bought the larger Great St. James islands for $17.5 million.

    The islands are estimated to be worth a combined $240 million today.

    The only way to access the island is by boat or plane. Epstein usually boarded his private plane to fly to St. Thomas’ international airport, where he would then board a helicopter that whisked him to his private islands.

    A few days after his Aug. 10 death, FBI agents and NYPD officials raided Little St. James, which locals told authorities they had nicknamed “Pedophile Island.”

    Many lawsuits against Epstein and his estate allege that Epstein sexually assaulted many girls and women on the islands.

    Over the years, Epstein built Little St. James, which he referred to as “Little St. Jeff’s” to include a villa with a library, a Japanese bathhouse, and a movie theater.

    Initially the island had the main house, three guest cottages, a caretaker’s cottage, a private desalination system, a helipad and a dock.

    By 2008, Epstein’s estate on Little St. James had about 70 staff.

    In February, executors of Epstein’s estate claimed they would not be able pay out money to the perv’s victims if the US Virgin Islands Attorney General is allowed to freeze his assets, new court papers show.

    AG Denise George’s office had asked a judge to freeze his assets following an announcement that the administrator of the Epstein Victims’ Compensation Program would have to pause making claim offers since the estate couldn’t currently replenish the fund.

    The island remains in contention between the courts and Epstein’s estate today — but it is expected to go on sale in the coming year, sources told The Post.

    Glaser had announced from the onset of his purchase his plans to demolish the property.

    Located at 358 El Brillo Way, the funds from the sale have been allocated to the victims’ compensation program to make payments to Epstein’s victims.

    “I only got involved in the sale of Jeffrey Epstein’s residence to ensure it would be wiped off the map of Palm Beach,” Lawrence Moens, who represented the listing, told the Palm Beach Daily News at the time.

    Located at 9 E. 71st St., Epstein’s estate attorney, Bennet Moskowitz, revealed previously in court proceedings that the cash would be used to replenish the Epstein Victims’ Compensation Fund.

    The 28,000-square-foot neoclassical townhouse first hit the market in July for nearly $90 million, but the price was cut shortly thereafter.

    A document discovered by the feds on a hard drive in Epstein’s townhouse detailed his intimate relationship with Maxwell, FBI digital forensic examiner, Stephen Flatley, testified in Manhattan federal court last Tuesday. The file was created on a desktop by someone logged in as the user “GMax” on Oct. 14, 2002.

    “Jeffrey and Ghislaine have been together as a couple for the last 11 years,” the note started. “They are, contrary to what people think, rarely apart, I almost always see them together.”

    The duo was described as “thick as thieves,” with the file noting, “they compliment each other really well.”

    The document went on to describe the British socialite as “highly intelligent and great company with a ready smile and an infectious laugh” who puts people at ease.

    “Jeffrey and Ghislaine share many mutual interests and they have a lot of fun together,” it continued. “On top of being partner’s [sic] they are also best of friends,” it said.

    Previously owned by Victoria’s Secret mogul — and Epstein associate — Les Wexner, the townhouse was built in 1930 for an heir to the Macy’s department store fortune.

    Epstein purchased the house for $20 million in 1998.

    Special Agent Kelly Maguire testified Monday that her team “forced entry” into the home on July 6, 2019, after no one answered the door, and then swept through all 40 rooms.

    When federal authorities raided the home they found creepy artwork in the lair, including a painting that depicted Clinton wearing a blue dress and high heels while kicking his feet up in a chair.

    Investigators also found a taxidermied tiger and poodle in the house.

    The pedophile allegedly molested and sexually assaulted dozens of women and girls at the estate after luring them into the house by asking for massages.

    Known as “Zorro Ranch,” it went up for sale in July for $27.5 million, two years after Epstein’s death.

    Property records show Epstein purchased the ranch in 1993 from Gary King, who served as New Mexico’s 30th attorney general at the time. The purchase consisted of private and leased federal lands.

    After heightened allegations resurfaced against Epstein in 2019 concerning his involvement with underage girls, the state land commissioner ended the grazing deal with him.

    “We are officially canceling the leases with Zorro Ranch and Cypress Inc.,” State Land Commissioner Stephanie Garcia Richard told local KRQE station at the time. “I would never sign any lease agreements or contracts with such individuals as Jeffery Epstein or any of his co-conspirators.”

    Made up of 7,600 acres, the compound is located south of Sante Fe.

    Epstein reportedly had plans to turn the compound into a baby-making factory where he would inseminate victims.

    The ranch includes a three-story, four-bedroom main house, a nearby caretaker’s residence, horse stables, a firehouse and a yurt. There is also a grass airstrip and hanger for when Epstein would fly in on his private plane.

    “The proceeds from the sale are expected to be used for the estate’s regular administration, including its payment as necessary of taxes, creditors and claimants,” Daniel H. Weiner, who represents Epstein’s estate, told The Post.

    Epstein also had a Paris estate that went up for sale last month for $13.5 million.
