The Obamas’ Kalorama home.
It appears that the Obamas may stay in Washington, DC a bit longer than originally planned.
The Washington Post is reporting that the former first family have purchased the eight-bedroom Kalorama mansion that they have been renting since leaving the White House. The sales price is $8.1 million.
The home, which the Obamas have been renting since January, spreads out over 8,200 square feet, and has a deep backyard, a large space for parking, a number of entertaining areas and it is set back on a secluded street off of Massachusetts Avenue.
The First Family’s new abode is a half mile from the Clintons’ home in DC, and is a substantial step up from President Obama’s first digs in the city. It is also not far from Jeff Bezos’ new home in the city and the rental home of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.
