Gov. Jerry Brown and his wife, Anne Gust Brown, are selling their house in the Oakland Hills.

Brown’s office on Wednesday confirmed a report in the East Bay Times that the house will be listed this week for about $2.6 million.

Brown, the former mayor of Oakland, maintained his residence in Oakland after returning to the governor’s office in 2011, splitting time between his home and a rented loft in Sacramento. He and Gust Brown gave up the loft and moved into the renovated Governor’s Mansion in downtown Sacramento in December.

Gust Brown told the East Bay Times that “given how much time we spend in Sacramento, we reluctantly decided that the (Oakland) house was too much for us as less than a full-time residence.”

Brown, who will term out of office in 2019, is planning to build a home on land his family has owned for decades in Colusa County.
