Former President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, have reportedly spent $8.1 million to buy the 8,200 square-foot house that they had been renting in Washington, D.C.’s posh Kalorama neighborhood.
A Yahoo News report said the couple moved into the stately Tudor-style home, owned by former Clinton administration press secretary Joe Lockhart, following their eight-year stay in the White House. They plan to stay at least until their younger daughter Sasha finishes high school at Sidwell Friends.
So the house remains blue. But the same can’t be said for other parts of the Kalorama neighborhood, which is becoming a growing epicenter of power for both Democrats and Republicans alike.
Literally, around the corner from the Obamas stands the 6,780-square foot Colonial mansion where President Trump’s daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner — both key advisers to the president — now live.
