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.
