In 2009, Mitt Romney began dumping a few personal properties. He sold his longtime Boston home, where he raised his family, and then sold his vacation home in Park City, UT to race car driver and money manager Hal Prewitt for $5.25 million. Although he did not publicly state it at the time, the downsizing was likely in preparation for his bid in the 2012 presidential election.
Romney lost the election, and after some time recouping, it appears he’s not so sure about downsizing anymore. According to the Park City Record, he and his wife, Ann Romney, have purchased a new place in Park City.
The property in question is in Deer Valley. Previously listed for $8.9 million, the “Utah rustic” home was designed by local architect Fred Babcock and featured in Architectural Digest for Babcock’s use of whole logs in the design.
Centered around an enormous 2-story great room with massive fireplace, the 8,730-square-foot floor plan includes 6 en-suite bedrooms, an entertainer’s kitchen and hewn logs and stone details throughout. Located on the Success Ski Trail, the home is truly a ski-out residence.
Romney also owns a home in La Jolla, CA that he is in the midst of renovating, as well as a small townhouse just outside Boston in Belmont, MA. The Romney family also has a longtime family compound in Wolfeboro, NH.
