Obama’s $22.5M vacation home is 7,000 sf mansion; tell us more about income equality, Mr. President

Not everyone gets to vacation like President Barack Obama.

Obama and his family are spending their 17-day Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, vacation in a “humble” $22.5 million home complete with six bedrooms, five bathrooms, an oversized fireplace and a heated infinity pool.

Living Room
The 7,000-square-foot mansion features a sunken living room, with panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean.

As Mel Brooks once said, “it’s good to be the king.”

At more than four times the length of the average American vacation, the first family’s getaway will be filled with golf games at the nearby Farm Neck Golf Club, where Obama already played a round with former National Basketball Association stars Alonzo Mourning and Ray Allen, after an earlier round with comedian Larry David, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

Infinity pool
The living room looks out over a heated infinity pool with more sweeping views of the coastline.

Described as a “private vacationer’s dream,” the plush 7,000-square foot mansion is tucked away in a nine-and-a-half acre estate with scenic views of the Atlantic Ocean, seen from the double-height windowed walls in the sunken living room, and private study, according to the Huffington Post.

Obama has spent each of his summer vacations on the exclusive Massachusetts island since being elected in 2008, only skipping the coveted getaway in 2012 during his re-election campaign.

It’s nice to see he has priorities.

Bath

On the off chance you’re interested in grabbing this humble abode for yourself, Thomas Wallace of Wallace & Co./ Sotheby’s International Realty can handle any inquiries.

But you might consider getting pre-qualified first. Not just anyone can afford this kind of luxury escape from the daily grind.
