In apparent confirmation of rumors from before the holidays…it looks like the governor is on the move of another sort. Per JSonline:
Gov. Scott Walker has put his home — the one in Wauwatosa, not the governor’s mansion — up for sale.
The two-story, three-bedroom house has been listed by Delafield real estate agent Premar LLC for $338,000. The listing calls the home an “exception colonial!” which boasts “quintessential Tosa charm!” and mentions the in-ground swimming pool, bright white modern kitchen with Corian countertops and a front-entry sunroom.
Walker’s spokeswoman did not immediately return a phone message Sunday evening.
It appears the home on N. 68th St., which was built in 1924, was listed on Saturday. Since purchasing it in March 2007 for $310,000, Walker has painted the home’s exterior, rebuilt the chimney and replaced the pool liner.
Walker’s home features 2 1/2 baths and a full basement on a quarter-acre of land. Assessed at $359,900, the home’s tax bill in 2013 was $8,381.
No open houses are scheduled, but prospective buyers can request a private showing. When reached by phone Sunday, Realtor Cathy Priem said she had no comment before hanging up.
Walker was elected governor in 2010 and re-elected in 2014 after surviving a recall attempt. He has not said whether he’ll run for re-election in 2018.
