Mitt Romney’s former Belmont home for rent

The former Belmont home of 2012 presidential candidate and Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney can be yours temporarily for $2,200 a night, $325 per hour, or $25,000 a month. The owner, who purchased the home for $3.5 million from Romney in April 2009 according to, has opted to rent it rather than sell it.

The six-bedroom, six-bathroom, 7,600-square-foot home sits on more than two acres of land at 171 Marsh St. and has an in-ground pool and tennis courts.

It was the most expensive home sold in Belmont’s history until 2017 when a home at 5 Sumner Lane sold for $3.75 million.

Currently, the highest price paid for a single-family home in Belmont is 9 Sumner Lane, which sold for $6.45 million in February 2019.

Romney lived in the house with his wife, Ann, and their four sons for 20 years. He purchased it in October 1989 for $1.25 million. He later moved to Utah, where he has served as a U.S. senator since 2019.

Romney was the Republican nominee for president in 2012. He lost to incumbent Democrat Barack Obama.

This is a living room area in the Belmont home that once belonged to former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The home is available to rent for $25,000 per month.
