Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), fresh off his bid for the Democratic presidential nomination, has bought a summer home in Vermont for nearly $600,000, according to a local newspaper.

Seven Days Vermont reports that the lakefront property on the Champlain Islands has four bedrooms and 500 feet of Lake Champlain beachfront.

Sanders also owns a home in Burlington and another property in Washington, D.C.

Sanders' wife confirmed the purchase in a statement to the paper:

“We've traveled up to the islands many times over the years — almost always on day trips," Sanders' wife, Jane O'Meara Sanders, told Seven Days in a written statement. "We've 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 socialist Sanders gave Hillary Clinton a run for her money in the Democratic race, railing against Wall Street and income inequality. 

Some of Sanders' supporters were less than pleased with his new purchase, while others argued the irony.
