After an emotional goodbye speech earlier this week, it's time for the Barack Obama to step down as President of the United States. Now when you’ve called the White House home for the last eight years, then it must be pretty difficult to find a new house that’s up to scratch. But it looks like the Obama family have done just that, with a beautiful eight-bedroom, nine-and-a-half-bathroom home in Washington DC’s exclusive Kalorama neighbourhood.
The Obama family have said that they will stay in Washington DC after leaving the White House so that their youngest daugher, Sascha, can finish school. They will rent the large mansion from president Bill Clinton’s former press secretary, Joe Lockhart and his wife. This won’t be Kalorama’s first past president - the trendy neighbourhood has been home to presidents Woodrow Wilson, William Taft, Franklin D Roosevelt, Warren Harding and Herbert Hoover. The neighbourhood is also home to more than 20 embassies, meaning security is already tight in the area - guess president Obama's lifetime protection from the U.S. Secret Service will fit right in!
Featuring three fireplaces, enough parking space for 10 cars and a large terrace and outdoor area, we think that the Obama family will be very happy living in this beautiful home. Take a sneak peak inside their new home below…
