January 19 is Barack Obama’s last day in the White House. After the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump, he and his family will be on their way to Palm Springs for vacation.

When they come back to DC, they will be settling into a home in the Kalorama section of DC, as Politico reported back in May.

It’s not the White House, but it’ll do.

Though smaller than the Obamas’ former Pennsylvania Avenue address, the house is still a lavish residence in a desirable neighborhood. It was built in 1928, and it has 8,200 square feet and nine bedrooms. The move-in process has already begun.

Both Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and the family of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner can be counted as the Obamas’ new neighbors in Kalorama, as both have also recently purchased homes in the neighborhood.

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. It was listed for sale at $5.3 million before going off the market in May.

The Obamas are trading white for brick at their newly leased mansion in the Kalorama section of DC. More recent photographs show brick pillars have been constructed, flanking the path up to the front door.


It’s gated and private, though it sits close to the road.
