Mitt Romney is building a new family manse in Salt Lake City, and it includes a hidden room that you access via a swinging bookcase.
The property, which abuts the Jordan and Salt Lake Canal, will include multiple lawns and terraces, a fountain, a fire pit and a gazebo. An outdoor spa will be accessible from the master bathroom.
With the exception of two of the three upstairs bedrooms, the living space is mainly on the first floor. The three-car garage is expected to have an apartment constructed on top of it at some future date.
