Gov. Patrick's Milton mansion
MILTON—Governor Deval Patrick and his wife Diane re-listed their 6-BR, 4.5-BA manse that they tried to sell in 2009 and 2010, this time for $1,500,000. The couple has listed the 6,880-square-foot Colonial, with nine working fireplaces, for as much as $1.9M, though it disappeared from the market in December 2010, when listed for $1,725,000. The Patricks bought it for $560,000 way back in April 1989.
