President Barack Obama has said that he and his family will remain in Washington, D.C., after they leave the White House in January so that his youngest daughter, Sasha, can finish school. And it looks like the Obamas have settled on a neighborhood.
Obama and first lady Michelle will lease an 8,200-square-foot mansion in the Kalorama neighborhood of D.C., according to Politico. The residence is reportedly owned by Joe Lockhart, Glover Park Group co-founder, and his wife, Giovanna Gray Lockhart, the Washington editor of Glamour.
Politico reported that the Obamas will lease an 8,200-square-foot mansion owned by Joe Lockhart, a former press secretary for President Bill Clinton, and his wife, Giovanna Gray, the Washington editor for Glamour magazine. Lockhart, the founding partner of the Glover Park Group, a Washington media-relations firm, is heading to New York City to serve as executive vice president of communications for the National Football League, the political news site stated.
The four-story brick house, a nine-bedroom, eight-and-half-bath property on Belmont Road NW, close to Rock Creek Park and Embassy Row, was built in 1928 and has a two-car garage and a gated courtyard, according to Zillow.
The Tudor-style house was last sold in May 2014 for $5.3 million after having been remodeled in 2011.
The home sits on a quarter of an acre and includes a gazebo and, appropriately, a vegetable garden, according to the listing. First Lady Michelle Obama has tended a garden on the South Lawn of the White House since 2009.
