OAKLAND, Maine — Maine’s Republican congressman has sold his house in the 2nd Congressional District, but is continuing to live on the property through a rental agreement.

Rep. Bruce Poliquin moved into the home in Oakland before running for his first term in the U.S. House, in 2014. The town assessor says his home sold for $450,000 on Jan. 3 to Gary and Elizabeth Ouellette of Winslow.

An adviser says Poliquin is leasing back an apartment on the property. He brokered that deal during the sale of the home.

A spokesman said last year that Poliquin was looking to downsize. The assessor says the Oakland property included two structures, a two-story house and a lakeside camp.

Poliquin represents Maine’s sprawling, northern 2nd Congressional District. He also owns a home in Georgetown, which is in the 1st Congressional District.
