Ben Carson’s new $4.4M Florida mansion is not the White House

Presidential wannabe Ben Carson might not be moving into the White House but he is moving into a $4.37 million Florida mansion.

According to Gossip Extra, the former Republican presidential candidate reportedly snapped up the 8,782-square-foot home – set in a guard-gated golf community in Florida’s Palm Beach Gardens – from a mortgage company that took possession of the property in a foreclosure proceeding.

The five-bedroom spread comes with views overlooking the 15th fairway and green of Old Palm Golf Club, an open kitchen and family room, an elevator, two garages, a pool, a home theatre and a whole lot of columns (just like that other home in DC he was eyeing).

Carson moved to Palm Beach County in 2013, after his retirement as head of pediatric surgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. He made headlines late last year when a video surfaced of him telling graduates during a commencement address in the late ’90s that he believed the pyramids in Egypt were built by the biblical figure Joseph to store grain, a theory he reportedly stands by. [Gossip Extra]
