Au Revoir: After Four Decades in Town, Romneys Sell Belmont Townhouse

For the first time since 1971 when they moved into the pretty house on Winn Street, Mitt and Ann Romney are no longer Belmont residents, selling their South Cottage Street townhouse on May 6 for $1.2 million, according to records at the South Middlesex Registry of Deeds.

The Romneys purchased the townhouse in the Woodlands at Belmont Hill development on the McLean Hospital property in June 2010 for $895,000 after selling the family manse on Marsh Street in April 2009 for $3.5 million.

The townhouse, appraised in 2014 by the town for $973,000, was sold to Valmarc Corp. CFO Gordon and Laurie Low; he, like the Romneys, an alumnus of Brigham Young University.
