      Mitt Romney

      Park City, UT

      Most Known For

      Accomplished businessman, Politician and GOP nominee who lost the 2012 presidential election to Barack Obama

      Price

      $8,900,000

      After his crushing defeat in the 2012 presidential race, GOP nominee Mitt Romney is recovering from the Presidential loss by splaying out some serious money for a gorgeous ski mansion in the Deer Valley resort of Park City, Utah.

      He may not be the leader of the free world, but he is now king of this castle, which was most recently listed for $8.9 million.

      The property records associated with the sale are vague, but according to Utah’s Park Record, this house on Silver Lake Drive has been linked to the Romneys. The home is registered to a firm called Deer Valley SR, LLC, and Utah state records name Mitt’s wife Ann Romney as the manager of that LLC.

      Park City is an obvious choice for another Romney family mansion. A devout Mormon with deep roots in Utah, Romney helped organize the Winter Olympics here in 2002, and from about 1999 to 2009, the family owned another equally lavish ski mansion a stone’s throw from these new digs.

      With 5 sons, 5 daughters-in-law and 23 grandchildren, the Romneys need space, which they’ll find in their new 8,730-square-foot ski-in/ski-out mansion. The six-bedroom home, built in 1991 from “whole logs and many local materials” was designed by architect Fred Babcock and the “Utah Rustic” interiors were designed by David Krajeski and were once featured in Architectural Digest.

      The Romneys have a substantial real estate portfolio that also includes homes in La Jolla, California, Boston, Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

      Chelsea Clinton and her investment banker husband Marc Mezvinsky are trading up in New York City!  The duo recently purchased a $10+ million condo and are now listing their nearly $5 million pad.

      They bought their new place in a secure building on East 26th Street for $10.5 million in March 2013, which led them to list their former home nearby for $4,475,000.   The moving van didn’t have to go far, as the couple moved just a stone’s throw from their former condo. In fact, both buildings are located in the stunning Flatiron District and have views of Madison Square Park.

      According to The Real Deal, this for-sale condo actually belonged exclusively to Chelsea’s husband, who bought it in 2008 for $4 million. The couple had been living there since their $3 million 2010 nuptials until they finally moved on – and up – to their fabulous new $10M pad!

      According to the listing, the full-service, 3 bedroom home at the Grand Madisonhas a well laid out floor plan that is perfectly suited to entertaining and gracious living.” An open chef’s kitchen has top-of-the-line appliances and the large master bedroom has generous closets and a luxurious marble en-suite bath with double sinks and separate steam shower and soaking tub.

      Since their wedding in 2010, the duo have been busily working and building a life in New York. He’s an investment banker, and she works on behalf of her father’s Clinton Global Initiative and sits on the board of IAC Interactive and the School of American Ballet. She also has a contract with NBC to do pieces that “make a difference.”

        Price

        $23,700,000

        So who’s looking to vacation like the president of the US of A? Better yet, who wants to call that place home?

        Presidents tend to select the most exclusive and relaxing locations for a much needed R & R. Just earlier this year, the Clintons chose a private beach estate in the East Hamptons for their week-long getaway.

        For the past three years, our now-president Barack Obama has chosen a more laid-back, country ambiance for his family vacations and has headed to Massachusetts to unwind at Blue Heron Farm, a 13,327 sqft, 13 bedroom, 12.5 bath Martha’s Vinyard estate.

        Lucky for us, recent reports revealed this compound, owned by Republican businessman William Van Devender, has now officially hit the market for $23.7 million.

        The 28.5-acre, incredibly exclusive waterfront compound sits in Chilmark on Tisbury Great Pond and is made up of five main building structures including not one, but two full-size homes – 5,118 sq ft and 3,718 sq ft.  This estate is truly a horse lover’s dream come true! Its beautifully renovated facilities include an eight-stall horse barn that was physically relocated from Pennsylvania and completely rebuilt on the property, an Olympic dressage arena, and six grass paddocks.

        Relax poolside in the property’s water view pool with hot tub or enjoy various recreational activities such a par 3 golf course, tennis court, half basketball court, horseshoes, lawn bowling or water sports on Tisbury Great Pond which opens to the great Atlantic. This home appeals to both the active and more relaxed resident, offering the best of both worlds for whatever your mood may be!

        So, these are some pretty big vacay shoes to fill, wouldn’t you say? Now that the Obama’s fave spot will no longer be available, where do you think they should vacation next?
