When President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama move out of the White House in January, their moving truck won’t have to travel too far. Politico staffer Nick Gass reports that the first family will lease an 8,200-square-foot mansion in the D.C. neighborhood of Kalorama.
The home is owned by Joe Lockhart and Giovanna Gray, who moved to Manhattan after he accepted a job in February with the NFL as its executive vice president of communications, while Gray handles special projects for Glamour magazine.
According to real-estate data, the home was built in 1928 and features nine bedrooms and eight-and-a-half baths.
It was last sold in May 2014 for $5,295,000, according to data on Zillow, which also notes that the property has a two-car garage and a gated courtyard for eight to 10 vehicles.
The Obamas have long said they plan to stay in Washington after the president leaves offices so that their youngest daughter, Sasha, can finish high school without interruption.
