Step inside the Obamas’ $5.3M DC mansion
On Jan. 20, President Barack Obama and his family are leaving the White House and moving into an 8,200 square-foot home in Washington, D.C., just two miles away. The 5.3 million-dollar mansion is located in Kalorama, one of Washington, D.C.’s toniest neighborhoods. The property was once owned by Joe Lockhart, who served as White House press secretary under former President Bill Clinton.
The couple made the decision to stay in the D.C. area so 15-year-old Sasha can finish her studies at the Sidwell Friends School. Malia is taking a gap year before heading to Harvard.
The posh pad features eight bedrooms, 8.5-baths and is a brick classic built in the 1920s. The home doesn’t exactly have an Oval Office but it will feature two offices after renovations are completed in the coming weeks. In addition, the home will have its security units and electrical system upgraded. Contractors will also add a catwalk over one staircase and convert one of the bathrooms and garage units into the home offices for the president and first lady.
