Bernie Sanders Adds Another Vermont Home To His Real Estate Portfolio

The former Democratic presidential hopeful is feeling the bern for his new vacation home.

Get ready for a relaxing Weekend at Bernie’s! Now that he officially won’t be moving into the White House, Bernie Sanders has decided to go all out and buy a new vacation home in North Hero, VT.

Bernie just dropped $575,000 on the four-bedroom lakefront home, Seven Days reports. We can just imagine him sitting back in a chaise lounge with his wife, Jane, enjoying the bucolic wonder of Lake Champlain. You live your best life, like Oprah says, Bernie!

The new spread is an 1,883-square-foot historic beauty, with 500 feet of lakefront space and stunning views of the water and mountains. Built in 1920, the home has two and three-quarter bathrooms (although we’re not so sure what that means it’s missing). A large (oops, we mean huge) open kitchen is the perfect spot to cook up big family meals, while the spacious screened-in porch is the ultimate picture of relaxation. There’s even an attached guest quarters, in case the Clintons feel like coming over for a visit. We wouldn’t hold our breath though.

Bernie also owns two other properties: his main home in Burlington, VT, which he bought back in 2009 for $405,000, and a Capitol Hill spread in Washington, DC, which he bought back in 2007 for $488,000. If you’re nice, maybe he’ll let you borrow one for the weekend … just call it democratic socialism!
