Scott Brown Sold His Last Massachusetts Property
It’s official: Scott Brown has severed all physical ties with the Bay State.
According to paperwork filed with the Suffolk County Registry of Deeds, Brown, who is running for U.S. Senate in New Hampshire, closed on the sale of a one-bedroom condominium at 1840 Commonwealth Ave. in Brighton on Wednesday. His wife, ex-TV reporter Gail Huff, was listed as co-owner. The condo, which they purchased in October 2007 for $172,000, sold for $235,000. The condo was listed for sale in June and went under agreement in just three days.
At one point, Brown and Huff owned four properties in Massachusetts, including their primary residence in Wrentham. That home was listed for sale in September for $559,900 and, according to the Norfolk County Registry of Deeds, sold two months later for $544,000. When contacted on his cell phone and asked at the time why he was selling, Brown told The Republican/MassLive.com, “I’m a private citizen now and it’s personal,” said he was in a meeting and had to go, and then hung up.
Until recently, they owned two other condominiums in Brighton. In addition to the one that closed yesterday, they owned a second condo at 1840 Commonwealth Ave., which they bought in October 2007 for $122,500 and sold in August for $170,000.
The couple were also co-owners of a third condominium with their daughter, Ayla, who was attending Boston College at the time. That Commonwealth Avenue condo was purchased in May 2007 for $194,000 and sold in October for $235,000. Ayla Brown is engaged to be married this fall and now lives in Tennessee. Her sister, Arianna, was married in New Hampshire just this past weekend and lives in the Washington, D.C. area.
