Another milestone in Barack Obama’s presidency has been set with the election of his successor, Donald Trump.
The election moved Obama closer to life after the presidency. And as Politico reported back in May, the Obamas have already settled on a post-Pennsylvania Avenue house to call home.
It’s not the White House, but it’ll do.
Though smaller than the Obamas’ current, better-known abode, the house is still a lavish residence in a desirable neighborhood in the nation’s capital. It was built in 1928, with 8,200 square feet and nine bedrooms. It was listed for sale at $5.3 million before going off the market in May.
The Obamas will lease the home from Joe Lockhart, who served as press secretary in President Bill Clinton’s White House, until their younger daughter, Sasha, finishes high school.
