Mitt Romney’s New House Will Have a Secret Room
The Salt Lake Tribune has studied the architectural plans for Mitt Romney’s new house in the suburbs of Salt Lake City and made an interesting discovery.
The 5,900-square-foot property is designed to have a secret room, complete with a false bookshelf that acts as a door.
This is one of five homes Romney owns in the U.S., two of which are located in Utah.
The former governor of Massachusetts also owns properties in the Bay State, California and New Hampshire, which comes in handy since he never seems to tire of running for president.
WAIT, BEFORE YOU GO…

Slide and secret passage » Romney isn’t the only one in his family who has had some fun with the design of his properties.
According to the website Color Issue, son Craig Romney had one of his two main stairways at his San Diego home turned into an optional slide for his children and added a secret passageway through a closet.
The plans for Mitt Romney’s house — drafted by McAlpine Tankersley Architecture and obtained through a records request — dub it “a new farmhouse in Holladay,” one that will be adorned with vertical wood siding, quaint wood shutters around the windows and large sliding barn doors. Cedar shingles will cover the massive pitched roof that rises 35 feet from the ground.
