Jeb Bush moves, but stays in Coral Gables

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has moved. But he didn’t go far.

Bush and his wife, Columba, have left their home near Coral Gables Senior High School, a Bush spokeswoman confirmed. The three-bedroom, three-bath Old Spanish house, which has a for-sale sign out front, is listed on the real-estate website for $899,000. The couple bought the home in 2008 for $800,000.

Property records show Bush and his wife purchased a deluxe, classically inspired townhouse in August near the Venetian Pool. They paid $1.3 million for the four-bedroom, four-bath residence in the sumptuous Almeria Row development that has won numerous architectural awards.
