Mitt Romney to quadruple size of La Jolla home
Romney has filed an application with the city to bulldoze his 3,009-square-foot, single-story home and replace it with a two-story, 11,062-square-foot structure, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.
The former governor of Massachusetts purchased the home three years ago. Plans call for him to keep the existing lap pool and spa but build new retaining walls and move the driveway, the website reports.
Constructed in 1936, the three-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom home has a stretch of lawn sloping to the white sand beach.
