The Obamas will soon be leaving their place of residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and moving into a leased home in Washington, D.C.’s Kalorama neighborhood, CNN confirmed after it was first reported in Politico.
Built in 1928, their forthcoming nine bedroom, eight-and-a-half bathroom home is reportedly owned by former White House press secretary to Bill Clinton, Joe Lockhart.
The house was sold in 2014 for over $5 million.
President Obama had shared plans of staying in Washington, D.C. following his presidency so that Sasha could finish high school.
