With their time in the White House drawing to a close, Barack and Michelle Obama have had to undertake the arduous task (lol) of picking out a new house to replace their old White house digs. And boy, did they make a good choice with their new rental home in the exclusive Kalorama neighbourhood of Washington D.C.
The Obamas will stay in the D.C. area until eldest daughter, Malia, finishes high school, but after that the family’s plans aren’t clear. They could move back to Chicago, where they lived before Barack Obama first became president, or move back to Hawaii where he was born.
‘Hawaii’s home for me but I spent almost 30 years in Chicago. It’s where I met Michelle, it’s where she grew up. It’s where our daughters were born’ the current President said, according to CNN.
Their new home boast nine bedrooms, eight and a half bathrooms, and comes with a sprawling back garden. The property is reportedly owned by Joe Lockhart, who was the White House’s press secretary during Bill Clinton’s time in office.

The 8,200 square foot property comes with an enviably large garden, perfect for hosting summer drinks parties or barbecues.
The interior is just incredible: A tastefully decorated property with hard wood floors, simple colour scheme and loads of natural light. We particularly love the brick-lined fireplace.
While the family may initially miss the White House kitchen, we think they’ll get over it pretty quickly once they settle in to this one. Those marble counter tops are TDF.
As well as the extensive bedrooms, the house also has an au pair suite for when the family have guests to stay. We’ll happily swing by in January, guys.
The family may be leaving the White House, but the Obama legacy will live on long after they’re gone.
