Once you’ve lived in the White House, it’s hard to imagine living anywhere else. But in January, that’s what President Obama and his family, Michelle, Malia and Sasha, are going to look ahead to.
President Barack Obama will lease a home in Washington, D.C.’s Kalorama neighborhood after he leaves the White House next year, CNN has confirmed. The house was built in 1928 and has nine bedrooms and eight-and-a-half bathrooms. It was sold in 2014 for more than $5 million.The family has decided to stay in the D.C. area after the president’s tenure in the White House ends so that Sasha can complete high school in the area in 2018. They’re planning to rent the place, according to The New York Times. Zillow estimates the monthly rent to be $22,000.
It is a gorgeous brick home, full of spacious rooms that feature hardwood floors, a terrace and gardens. The property has plenty of outdoor space for entertaining.
The white painted kitchen features an extended table/sink combination topped by white and gray marble. The mansion features nine bedrooms and nine baths for the family and guests.
Small family spaces have been created in serene ivories and neutrals for the family. A gated courtyard should suffice to hold multiple secret service vehicles, which will be needed once the president leaves office.
And at least for now, the house shares a neighborhood with Bill and Hillary Clinton, along with several countries’ embassies.
