Al Gore has a new home in Montecito, California.
A source told the LA Times that the former Vice President and his wife Tipper spent “$8,875,000 on an ocean-view villa on 1.5 acres with a swimming pool, spa and fountains”. The Italian-style house has six fireplaces, five bedrooms and nine bathrooms.
A fairly modest home when it comes to the bedrooms (and apparent fireplaces in each) — but nine bathrooms?! You can bet this new purchase will be watched closely by Gore’s detractors; and let’s hope he works to make some green improvements like he did in his Tennessee home.
