“We’ve traveled up to the islands many times over the years — almost always on day trips,” Jane Sanders, the former White House contender's wife, said in a statement. "The entire family is very excited about it.”
“We’ve always been impressed with the North Hero community, eaten at the North Hero House and Shore Acres and have suggested them to friends who were looking for a beautiful place to stay or have dinner. St. Anne’s Shrine in Isle La Motte is my favorite church and it is nearby.”
The Sanders’ new waterfront home has four bedrooms and 500 feet of Lake Champlain beachfront, Seven Days reported.
The town of North Hero has fewer than 1,000 residents, according to the 2010 U.S. Census.
The Sanders family also owns a row house on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., and a house in Burlington, Vt..
The residence in Burlington is currently valued at $321,900, according to city property records.
