How Big Is Mitt Romney’s La Jolla Mansion?
Mitt Romney’s mansion on the beach at La Jolla, California, is really big. Really, really big.
So big, in fact, that when his $12 million renovation is complete, it will actually have an elevator.
LA JOLLA, Calif. — If the news last summer that Mitt Romney had a $12 million expansion planned for his oceanfront property here helped portray him as a member of the top 1 percent, the new disclosure that the renovation includes elevators for his four-car garage is not likely to burnish his image as a man of the people.
Plans for the expansion, first reported by Politico and later obtained by The New York Times from a rival campaign, include a split-level, four-car garage with a “car lift,” an outdoor shower, and a 3,600-square-foot basement.
