Where does Mitt Romney, who is worth $250 million, spend his vacations? The republican presidential candidate relaxes at a $12 million beach front mansion in San Diego California. But there's just one problem. Romney is apparently unhappy with the current property and is planning to tear the whole thing down and rebuild a new mansion that is four times bigger! Romney's house is located on the beautiful coastline of La Jolla, California and it is actually just one of several mansions the ultra-successful businessman owns. Not only is La Jolla one of the wealthiest and most exclusive neighborhoods in the country, but there are only 35 beach front properties in the whole city which is why Mitt's plans to expand so controversial. Romney's current house is a 3000 square foot Spanish-style mansion, but I guess that's not big enough for the millionaire and his large family.

The new home Romney plans to build will be a two-story mansion covering around 11,000 square feet. Since he's pretty busy at the moment, his renovation plans have bee put on hold. Until then, let me share the lovely mansion he bought in 2008 for $12 million that will eventually get demolished. This Spanish style home has 3 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, hardwood floor with vaulted ceilings. Found in a quiet cul-de-sac, the highlights center around the beachfront backyard. A large deck gives a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean, with several patio areas for outdoor dining, lounging and entertaining. The backyard features varied flowers, plant-life and manicured lawns. Note the backyard runs along the premium white sand beach front, giving instant and private access. The total property area is 18,920 square feet, so the new home will extend along the beachfront. The unique hidden pool and spa will be the only original feature that will be kept after the new home is built.
