According to San Diego Union-Tribune on Saturday, August 20, 2011, Mitt Romney filed an application to transform his single-story 3,009-square-foot house into a two-story, 11,062-square-foot home.

As noted in the report, the Mitt Romney home, which is located at 311 Dunemere Drive, La Jolla is being proposed by the former Massachusetts governor to be reconstructed for family purposes.

A Mitt Romney campaign official was said to have sent an email to the media confirming the report and said the house renovation plan is for his family.

“They want to enlarge their two bedroom home because with five married sons and 16 grandchildren it is inadequate for their needs.” The official wrote in the email, The New York Times reported.

“Construction will not begin until the permits have been obtained and the campaign is finished,” the official added, with the 1936-built house purchased by Romney three years ago.

Romney, 64, who was said to have a $2,500-per-person fundraising campaign at Martha’s Vineyard, in Massachusetts this coming Saturday, August 27, has two other houses.

Besides his official residence in a town house outside Boston, Mitt Romney and his wife Ann reportedly own a $10-million home in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire.
