ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Gov. Larry Hogan has sold his waterfront home for $1.35 million.

Hogan sold the house last year, but the sale was reported this week by a local news website, Maryland Matters.

Public real estate records and the governor's financial disclosure statement confirm the sale of the four-bed and five-bath home in Edgewater, Maryland.

The governor and his wife, Yumi Hogan, bought the house in 2004 for $825,000. Hogan, a Republican who was a real estate executive before he was elected in 2014, is required to live in the governor's mansion in Annapolis.
