After Barack Obama’s presidential term ended there was much speculation around rather or not the former first family would move back to their hometown of Chicago. But after renting a lavish home in D.C.’s ritzy neighborhood Kalorama much of the speculation died down. However, now the Obama’s have taken the next step and purchased the home they were renting and have decided that because they’ll be in the nation’s capital for at least another two and a half years, said their spokesperson Kevin Lewis, “it made sense for them to buy a home rather than continuing to rent property.”
“Two and a half years is presumably a reference to when the youngest Obama, Sasha, will graduate high school (she attends D.C.’s prestigious Sidwell Friends School).”
The home is a classic Tudor with grand features such as floor to ceiling casement windows, grey-and-white marble countertops, site finished hardwood floors, and 9 bedrooms with 8.5 bathrooms. The Obama’s reportedly purchased the home for $8.1 million.
