DEER VALLEY — Former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney once again can call this exclusive ski resort community home.

According to Summit County records, Deer Valley SR, a company that lists Romney's wife, Ann, as manager, purchased an expansive two-story, ranch-style home built in 1990 in the pricey Evergreen subdivision in early September.

The purchase price for the six-bedroom, eight-bath "Utah rustic" house featured in Architectural Digest was not disclosed, but a real estate firm listed it for $8.9 million.

Romney, who also has homes in La Jolla, Calif., and Wolfeboro, N.H., lived in a similar house in Deer Valley while heading the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City but sold it in 2009.

Earlier this year, Romney began building a home in the upscale Walker Lane area of Holladay on a lot he shares with one of his two sons who live in Utah, Josh, while renting a home nearby.
