A look inside Barack Obama's $8.1M Washington, D.C. mansion


The Obamas recently bought this 8,200-square-meter Kalorama mansion in Washington, D.C.

After eight long years of residing in the White House, Barack Obama and his family moved into an 8,200-square-meter rental home in Washington, D.C., his country's capital city.

They started renting the place on January 19 this year, and figured it would be a better decision to buy it, with their kids' academic priorities as the primary consideration.

The big purchase totalled 8.1 million dollars.

According to reports, their decision to stay in the capital didn't come as a surprise since the ex-president's youngest daughter Sasha still have to years to finish her secondary education at Sidwell Friends School.

Meanwhile, the eldest daughter is set to study college at Harvard College.

Spokesperson Kevin Lewis said in a statement, "Given that President and Mrs. Obama will be in Washington for at least another two and a half years, it made sense for them to buy a home rather than continuing to rent property."

Built in 1921 and renovated in 2011, the said house was formerly owned by ex-president Bill Clinton's press secretary Joe Lockhart's family.

The Kalorama neighborhood also serves as home to President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka, which is "just around the corner" from the Obama mansion.

According to RedFin, the property has nine bedrooms.

The living room, just like the rest of the house, was painted in white to maintain a vibrant atmosphere.

The Obamas have two family rooms: one with the wide-paneled windows overlooking the garden...

...and the other one is located downstairs.

The kitchen is equipped with advanced cooking appliances.

Found upstairs is the master bedroom.

It comes with its own walk-in closet, a study, and a spacious bathroom.

Meanwhile, the sprawling garden is perfect for hosting parties.

Who wouldn't want to stay in this lavish residence? Right, PEPsters?
