Obamas officially make DC their home with 2nd most expensive purchase in ritzy neighborhood

At this rate, Barack Obama may NEVER leave Washington, D.C.

The Obamas “are putting down deeper roots” in the nation’s capital after purchasing the swanky Kalorama home they’ve been renting since leaving the White House, The Washington Post reported.

Living much larger since Obama’s ACORN community organizing days in Chicago, property records show the eight-bedroom, nine-and-a-half-bath home was purchased for $8.1 million — the second-most expensive home in a very expensive neighborhood, The Post reported.

The sale results in a real nice profit for the previous owners, former Bill Clinton press secretary Joe Lockhart and his wife, Giovanna Gray Lockhart, who paid $5.295 million for the home in 2014.

Spokesman Kevin Lewis said in a statement that buying the home “made sense” for the Obamas.

“Given that President and Mrs. Obama will be in Washington for at least another two and a half years, it made sense for them to buy a home rather than continuing to rent property,” Lewis said.

Before leaving office, Obama said the family will remain in D.C. while their younger daughter, Sasha, finishes high school.

Interestingly, most media reports on the purchase show images of the home BEFORE a nice wall was built around it:


Buying the home does not necessarily indicate the Obamas have long-range plans in Washington, but however long their stay, the family will reside in luxurious comfort — though you have to think “at a certain point” your house is elegant enough.
