Gov. Martin O'Malley and his wife, Katie, are actively house shopping in northern Baltimore and plan to "repatriate" to the city when his term ends.

O'Malley said Thursday his youngest son has already switched to a Baltimore school and that the family intends to move to a home near his wife's parents and other family once they leave Annapolis early next year.

The house search in Baltimore comes as the two-term Democrat weighs his future beyond the State House, including a possible bid for the White House in 2016. The move also appears necessary for Katie O'Malley, a Baltimore District Court judge, to keep her seat on the bench. 

Even when the O'Malleys sold their Walther Avenue home in Baltimore a few months after his family moved to the 52-room governor's mansion in 2007, the family suggested they would return to the city where the governor launched his political career.

"However grateful we are for the temporary abode here," O'Malley told reporters in Annapolis in 2007, "We fully intend to remain citizens of the city of Baltimore and will one day be back there."
